Before you get misled by the title of this blog entry, let me make it clear that this content is entirely harmless and can be read by children.


In Yoga class this Wednesday we were asked to do a half Camel Pose. I have recently joined a new class and find it a bit hard to understand the instructions as the Master talks about front of the side and back of the side and describes body parts as hills, fits and tits.

“Sit in Vajrasan” the Master thundered. “Then stand on your knees and bend to the back of the side till your hands touch the hills” (where are the hills ? oh , he meant heels,I realised and dug them into the mat)
“Now slowly slowly slowly and rhythamically bend to the back of the side and raise your left hand to the ceiling side. Then push the pelvis in the front of the side and throw your head back, hand by the ear of the left of the side and keep your tits together. Then slowly slowly breathe in and slowly slowly breathe out. Keep this position for twolve counts.”

(I was confused now – how could I keep my tits together with my chest thrust out? A few seconds later the penny dropped and I realised he was talking about the teeth. While throwing the head back we had to make sure that the jaw was shut tightly and not agape)

I took four more than the deep breaths required  in a herculean effort to keep myself  from convulsing in laughter. Needless to say anytime I think of the Camel Pose, I remember to keep my jaw firmly shut and my tits together.

p.s. Mis-spelt words are how the words are actually pronounced by the Master.
