#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 16th, 2018 – contemplation


Contemplation was something I knew I needed to do and was looking forward to the weekend away I had booked into promising me an insight into myself through deep personal contemplation.

I enthusiastically attended my first class and awaited a sense of enlightenment.

Our instructor arrived, a young lady, trim and slim all smiles and encouragement.

She asked us to sit on the floor and assume the position.

I was immediately flummoxed, as I didn’t know any position apart from the position of positivity about the benefits the weekend held for me.

Seeing my puzzled look she came to assist.

There followed a series of body movements that creaked, groaned and finally snapped as I found myself tied in a knot from which I feared I’d never recover.

Whilst every other participant appeared serene in the same position my body screamed at me to provide relief of any kind to it.

Finally I rolled over, legs still knotted, I feared for the duration of my life, which I felt was drawing to an end by the second.

Around me the serenity continued only interrupted by the groans of agony from me.

Seeing my discomfort the instructor stifling a giggle came to my rescue, untangled me and said I’d best take a walk in the garden to get the blood circulating once again.

The walk allowed my time to contemplate my future participation.

  1. Yoga Michael? I couldn’t fold myself very well either.

  2. Reminds me of when I get on the floor with my grandson and then my leg cramps up. 😉

    This is precisely why yoga terrifies me. 😛 I used to be flexible … once upon a time.

  4. Lyn says:

    Flexible? Yep… about two centuries ago. Most I can do now is cross my eyes.

    LOL, ah, Yoga… Wonderful description of “what did I get myself into???” Loved it. 🙂
