Vampire Yoga

I was perusing the Ashtanga blogs on Ashtangi.net and saw that someone noted the lack of Ashtangi jokes out there. Other than KJS’ Ashtanga yoga cartoons, I really haven’t heard any Ashtanga jokes.

The following is not really a joke, but I think it’s funny. Somebody called Sweatybrain wrote this post. From his blog, it appears that he is in medical school. Maybe an Ashtangi neurologist (to be).

Dracula, finish up Savasana
from Anita Gould

Just want to share an amusing interaction that I had the other day with my friend dave.

me: I’m tired. Got up at 4:30 again this morning to practice yoga.

Dave: where do you practice?

me: midtown. sort of near Bryant park.

Dave: so what exactly do you do at 4:30 in the morning. Is there a class that you go to? Like vampire yoga?

me: No. I just go there and do my own thing.

Dave: so why don’t you practice at home? is there like special equipment that you use?

me: no, you just need a yoga mat. and you don’t even really need that.

Dave: so, what you are telling me is that you commute an hour a day just to use their floor?

me: uh, i guess.

Dave: then you deserve to be tired.

(end interaction)

Thanks, Sweatybrain, whoever you are!

    I don’t know any ashtanga jokes, but here’s an Iyengar joke:

    How many Iyengar yogis does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    Just one, but he needs a blanket, block, and strap in order to do it.
