03 Oct Doga Anybody?
I love dogs, and I especially love new private students. But when I am told Bunty (Bunty is not our Portugese water dog’s real name – to protect the dog’s identity of course) will stop barking at any moment and lose interest in our yoga session, I believe my new student.
I sit down cross legged, my new client sits down in front of me, and Bunty sits in between us and looks at me. I can’t see my new student as Bunty is totally obscuring our view and I gesture to Bunty to move out of the way – Ggrrrr! It’s ok, Bunty will lose interest soon, I am comforted.
Bunty did not lose interest at all, in fact not for one minute during our session. He continuously growled at my Yoga breathing and when I demonstrated Kapalabhati, which involves short powerful forceful diagrammatic exhalations he lurched at me and knocked me flat.
“Oh Bunty, you are silly!”
