I went to take a friend of mine’s class a while ago, on a full moon. She talked about how humans are made mostly of water, and the moon pulls the tides, so therefore it must have an effect on how we feel. She finished her spiel with this line: “But I’m not a scientist. I’m a yoga teacher.”
Not all yoga teachers are known for being very grounded in reality. I know a few who get loopy after a few too many kombuchas, and some who think they are probably aliens. We are not scientists. We are yoga teachers.
Yet in recent times, Western science has been catching up to some “hippie” realities and proving us kombucha-swigging aliens true. Well, maybe not about the aliens. The kombucha is definitely good for you.
Now I’m going to do the thing where I drop some science on you. Remember that I am a yoga teacher.
