Rosaria:What's the matter?
Victor:I just got back from my first yoga class and I was sorely disappointed.
Rosaria:I've heard that yoga is very good low-impact exercise and helps with stress relief.
It's supposed to calm the mind and strengthen the body.
Rosaria:It sounds like you had a bad experience. Did you have a bad teacher?
Victor:The teacher was fine.
I learned about mantras and chakras, I learned breathing techniques, and I tried a few basic poses.
Rosaria:That all sounds right from my own experience, such as it is.
But, there are a lot of different types of yoga.
Maybe you need to try a different kind.
Victor:The problem wasn't the kind of yoga being practiced. It was the class.
Rosaria:Were the mats uncomfortable?
Rosaria:Was it too cramped?
Rosaria:Then what was the problem?
Victor:There was too much testosterone in the room.
Rosaria:You mean you were in a class with just men?
Rosaria:And that was a problem?
Victor:Do you think I would be taking a yoga class if I weren't trying to meet women?!
