So, she sinks back into the position of what is known in her circles as CRISS CROSS APPLESAUCE

When last seen, JCK was hellbent on tackling her 2009 resolution #1...getting fit. So determined was she, that she had participated in a spin class. JCK actually walked away from that class with a nod and a wink. A nod to herself for attempting something that she knew would cause residual tenderness betwixt her buttocks, yet a wink as her parting gesture to the class. You GO ON then, GIRLS and three men!!! Have at IT! JCK was on to other pastures.

A few days hence, we find JCK ensconced upon a yoga mat, her flattish fanny perched upon a welcoming yoga blanket. She sits in the semidarkness soaking up the silence. The class begins. Once again JCK gives a little SHOUT that she is new, so that if she appears to be making any unique moves perhaps the instructor can help her. (JCK has taken a smattering of yoga classes over the years, so although she is not a YOGI, she is perhaps more than a gogurt.) There is a slight wave of bodies jerking back upon their mats when JCK SHOUTS her little announcement. After all this is YOGA, and one must have respect for the TRANQUILITY found there. JCK gets this. She gets IT down to her gluteus maximus and beyond.

So, she sinks back into the position of what is known in her circles as CRISS CROSS APPLESAUCE. And the class begins... It goes smoothly. The soothing tones of the instructor, coupled with music that appears to both soothe and nourish JCK's inner being, gives her sustenance. And more... For as she lays on her back and lets one bent leg rest over the other she begins to feel something. Something so...almost....naughty? Yes, naughty! A feeling of warmth sliding up her body and a tingling sensation settling in around her...her... nether regions. Could it be? Could it BE? By, GOD, YES! YES!YES! ....AAAAAHHHH.....Namasté, indeed. JCK believes that she WILL be back...

  1. I knew there was a reason I liked yoga. :)

    (Sadly, we are all familiar to criss cross applesauce. I remember the first time I heard that I did a 'what?'. Funny how times change.)

  2. *laugh*
    hey at least there's something to 'make' you stick to that #1 resolution....

    'THAT' was a bonus, isn't it?! *wink*

  3. I definitely do not get that from Pilates.

  4. Gotta love that yoga! Ever try Bikram yoga? 105 degrees in the room, 26 postures practiced twice each for 90 minutes. You won't believe the flexibility you have when you're that damn hot.

  5. I hope you weren't shouting YES! during class, disrupting everyone's zen. You crack me up!

  6. gotta get me to yoga...

    (gogurt line cracked me up!)

  7. okay, I'm a little slow, but are you talking about having an orgasm in the middle of a yoga class??????? can I go next time?

    BTW, many, many congrats on being name BLOGHER OF THE WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Wait. Are you saying you get to eat Gogurt while exercising?

    Oh. Nevermind.


    And hey SINCERE CONGRATS on post of the week, I was so glad to read that in your E and check it out.

  9. Damn. I've been doing yoga semi-regularly for nearly two years and it's never so much as asked me for coffee!

    I'm off to find out about this BlogHer of the week thing.

  10. Dang, I've been attending the wrong yoga classes.

  11. Um...maybe I should look into yoga.

  12. I am one of those crazy spinners (but of course not nearly as 'rewarding' as yoga!)

  13. That's it, i'm ordering that Yoga dvd.
