Last night I said, "I feel drunk now," to a classmate as we were walking out of Yoga.
Yes, that was my profound first sentence after two hours of silence.
I thought about it all the way to the car (the statement). & then it hit me--that's the perfect way to describe my post-yoga-mood.
And I mean this in the second definition of the adjective "drunk" (at least according to Merriam-Webster):
2: dominated by an intense feeling [drunk with rage]
But ignore their rage example. It is more like--PEACE or HAPPY or like I could talk to the flowers.
We added a couple new poses:
cobra, sphinx, the fish, mountain-->standing side stretches
We also did some OM OM OM. Which is what a lot of people imagine when you mention Yoga. Or maybe that was just me several years ago.
I always imagined people sitting lotus-style (like up there in that picture) with their eyes closed, chanting. Well, last night we did the OM OM OM. And well, everyone was into it. Shocker.
OM: is reputed to be the resonant vibrational tone of the non-dualistic universe as a whole.
So there we have it.
