This happened few months ago during my first day in “Power Yoga” class under a male instructor. I tried very hard but can’t lift myself in Headstand. He tried to introduce other variations but I just can’t seem to adapt any. He then ask, “Are you a coffee or tea drinker?”


“Ah, by looking at your body, I can tell that you don’t drink any of it. Hmm… but you should be able to come up to Headstand.”

I just smiled shyly or rather embarrassed at his remark about me. I should have boasted to him, “Ya, I drink and addicted to it too!!!”

And last week, I heard him asking another Yogi the same question. I was like, wtf, so that is his pick-up line? This has became the gossip among a small group of us. I can’t believe my ears when they said, “Aiyah, he even said the same thing to me la.” *rolling on floor laughing*


On an unrelated topic, can anyone tell me what is the name for this posture?

My lengchai instructor used to utter ‘Jesus’. I do see some resemblance on the outstretched hand as the crucifix cross.

Namaste, everyone.

looks like a variation. and how does looking at one’s body tell about kopi or tea?

YogaJess: Lengchai said people with veins popping up on the hand find it more difficult to do Headstand. That could be that those who drink lots of kopi or teh most likely has bulging veins.

Looks like you want to fly, but forgot to take off the leg brake lah! I try to do it but my face keeps slamming into the floor. You owe me floor tiles.

YogaJess: Go get some bricks. Place them under your chin to lift your head up. Floor tiles is for cheapo. I used timber stripe. *sticking out tongue*
