YOGA IS TOXIC

31 May

I knelt in front of her, gravel sharp against my knees. “You can’t just wait for your energy to return,” I told her. “You’ve got to create energy.”

“I don’t buy into the myth of positive thinking.”

“Do some yoga.”

“India almost killed me, you fool. Yoga is toxic to me.” 

I forgave her gruffness. I reminded myself of how much she had lost.
