Picasso at Yoga Class
By Laurie Beth Jones
Picasso always had an inability to take verbal instructions in dance class, and anatomy.
So when he went in for his first yoga class, this is what he heard, and then drew:
Touch your nose to your sacrum—now hold.
Put a block under your nostril if you need support.
Now, using a band if you must, turn your left knee with your right toe into your forehead.
Into your neighbor’s forehead. Good.
Now, stretch your forehead until one eyeball plops out and rolls sideways.
Now, take the hand not being used to catch your eyeball, and turn it skyward until your palm is up and touching the floor.
Going into the triangle pose, make sure your back is turned at a variable degree angle until your inner thigh touches the top of your scalp. Excellent, Nicole.
Now, going into downward dog let’s walk those elbows one step at a time until we hit Cuernavaca. Or Guernica.
Carlos, I don’t think you should try a handstand until the class is…..uh oh….well… there you are. Can somebody call 911? We have to be out of here in 30 seconds.
My thoughts after a very longggggg yoga session last week!
Live. Breathe. Joy!
