You know what’s ridiculous? Applauding after a yoga class. I enjoy the occasional hatha yoga class at the gym, but I don’t see the purpose of congratulating ourselves for making it through a class of contemplative stretching. The whole enterprise is be a quiet one, so why treat it like it’s an aerobics class and whoop it up at the end? I may have to forego gym yoga for the local studio where they take things more seriously. Of course, sometimes the chanting there is too much. Can’t we just namaste and go on our way?
