Guruji’s Top Ten: World Tour 2006, Day 4 in New York

A Guruji World Tour write-up wouldn’t be complete without a top ten list … so here are my top 10 favorite Guruji-isms:

10. Close Your Ears! (as an alternate to Lock Your Ears in Karnapidasana)

9. Lose Your Feet! (in Halasana or Karnapindasana – to anyone who doesn’t have the tops of their feet on the floor)

8. Take Your Hands. Look Nose Center. Straight Back. Deep Breathing. With Sound. (in the last Padmasana)

7.Eh..! (often but not always followed by the infamous Bad Lady! or Bad Man! )

6. Straight Your Legs! (generally occurs between the last few poses in Primary Series where you lie on your back before going into Supta Padangusthasana, Ubhaya Padangusthasana, or Urdva Mukha Paschimottanasana)

5. Straight Knees! (in Navasana)

4. Wopen Your Feet (in Baddha Konasana)


2. Last One (always to be followed by…One More! – this is generally after the fifth or sixth Nine during Uth Pluthi)

1. Five, Six, Seven, Yeeeee-Eight
