Some say that yoga is very relaxing and calming. Others say it is a great place to meet women. Find out who is right in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:12 Explanations: 3:16 Fast dialog: 15:48 Victor: Humph! 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. Victor: Yeah, right. 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? Victor: No. Rosaria: Was it too cramped? Victor: No. 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? Victor: Yeah. 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?!
