Yoga is a thousand of years old tantric practice and science for health and higher consciousness that buds peculiar flowers and obnoxious social phenomena in the modern globalized world.
I one day found myself in a revolved bird of paradise (Parivrtta Svarga Dvijasana) when the teacher at the time said ‘Now bend forward from the hip’. My brain hit a wall in my motor coordination and I instinctively sighed ‘yogalectic’. I was thinking of ‘dyslectic’ and had to laugh at myself. I had to laugh at the initial incapability of translating a movement from the brain to the when in a new, awkward position. With focus, the motor coordination will happen, but this first moment of clumsiness is hilarious and refreshingly humbling.
After the class, I immediately registered the domain www.yogalectic.com. The original idea was to aggregate social yoga feeds to show the humorous side of yoga. All the while keeping in mind that when people say yoga, they mean asana practice, the purely physical side of yoga and not the whole path to self-realization laid out in Ashtanga Yoga or Tantra.
This was nine years ago and a lot has happened since then. Now I finally start writing on this website.
