Meme | Page 123

I saw this on Nymeth's blog recently. Then was tagged by Yogamum. So, I do meme.

Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more.

Ha ha. It is Yoga: The Path to Holistic Health - the anniversary edition that celebrates Iyengar's 90th birthday. Yes, I have it just lying around at my desk.

Find Page 123.

Find the first 5 sentences.

They list the benefits of Paschimottanasana, among which is the treatment for impotence. I kid you not.

Post the next 3 sentences.

THE GURU'S ADVICE

"Stretch from the seat of the buttocks and feel the lightness in your buttock. This is the heart of the perfect pose."

Wow, paschimottanasa for impotence, who would have thought? Now I need to go practice and feel the lightness in the buttock ;-)

Yogamum I didn't know it treated impotence either. Now I wonder: if it treats impotence, then if you're not impotent, does it help make you more virile instead?

Anyone wants to put this to the test?

Jean Pierre? :)

JP You see how I HAD to do this meme? ;)

Yogamum said...

Yes, I want to know! Someone please test the theory and report back to the class.

p.s. I didn't feel any lightness in my buttock, I must be doing something wrong.

hmmm...!

well, i'd certainly need more information... this stretching from the buttocks is rather ambiguous. stretching what? and to where?! :o
