no Inappropriate Yoga Guy jokes, please.
i have been learning at the community centre. while i am there first for the yoga, but my coursemates' sheer lack of basic friendliness surprised, then annoyed me.
for the entire course (8 sessions), most hardly even look at me, or at each other. so, nevermind smiling, and goodness, i wont even dream of getting a 'hello'. they stroll in like zombies, not smiling, not looking, and then when class is over, rushed for the door. its sat 12pm, what's the rush? hungry? geeze ..
no, i am not smelly or ugly. i am cordial and friendly. isnt it totally normal to expect some smiles, hellos, and some sharing?
midway, i thought it will be great to practice together outside our weekly class. we were learning more things than we can remember individually, so i thought by practicing together, we can collectively recall our classes. the instructor thought it was a swell idea too.
but, when i presented the idea to the class, .. dead quiet. half stared blankly at me, other half continued rolling their mats. it was bizzare.
so, people, .. what are your experiences like? if your yoga mate are usually friendly, pray tell which studio. if you live near toa payoh, and are interested to practice together, i am your man.
