When the instructor says "Nameste" to me, am I supposed to say something back?<br><br>
Cause he looks at me like I'm supposed to say something back. But no one else in the class says anything. But there are only three of us.

You could say Nameste back.<br><br>
Nameste means 'The light in me greets the light in you'.<br><img alt="razz.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/razz.gif">uke: Pretty hokey.<br><br>
You can say it back if you want, but it's not required- say what you feel.<br><br><br>
Here's some suggestions of what you could answer back<br>

-Ditto<br>
-Thanks<br>
-Cheers<br>
-Shalom!<br>
-Salaam!<br>
-Yo!

Is cursing at him out? B/c it's hard and by the end of it, I don't really like the guy too much.

<img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> You should stop going to advanced classes then. Go to the beginer class where they serve warm milk and look at pictures of puppy dogs instead of exercise...

I'll be doing some yoga next week. I've never done any. Now I'm a-skeered...

What do you do when he says this? Do you respond or just grin at him cluelessly?

Don't be a-skeered! Yoga is great. Just do what your body lets you and don't forget to breathe.

Somehow this isn't hard to imagine at all.

Don't be scared. I think I just expected something different. I mean, it's yoga, it's going "Ohhhmmmmmmm," it's relaxing, Rodney Yee makes it look easy.<br><br>
It's just harder than it looks. And I hate Warrior Pose. You'll see what I mean.

Thank you, aphigirl. I generally have no trouble remembering to breathe <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
lincoln, OK, warrior pose. I don't know what kind of yoga it is in which I will be engaging. It's part of something I'm doing with my sister. Maybe there will be puppies and warm milk!! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Well, I'm back.<br><br>
At the end, when he said Namaste, I said "go to hell, soul patch-wearing, sideburn-having, can-put-your-palms-on-the-bottoms-of-your-feet-with-your-legs-locked aquascum!" but is sounded like Namaste.<br><br>
Also, this was embarrasing...during our "relaxation" at the end, we're laying on our backs, breathing out, relaxing all of our muscles, allowing our weight to settle down into the floor, letting our minds drift, when <b><i>my</i></b> mind yelled "<b>YOU'RE FALLING!!!!</b>"<br><br>
Then came the full body twitch to try to catch myself before I fell any further.<br><br>
**Sigh** The only good news is that I think everyone else was too zonked out to notice, so only the instructor did.
