Right, just not as fluid, or graceful looking. I believe not everyone is capable of getting back out of some of those positions, at least not by themselves.
I had seen that video before, and I want to thank you for bringing it back to my attention. My Yoga class mates look nothing at all like that. There is a set of greeting cards featuring a woman named Maxine
. She is more like my classmates.
If any cartoon character were to do antigravitational yoga, it would not be Maxine, but Zippy the Pinhead. The billowy nature of his muu-muu/clown costume would blend perfectly with the billowy antigravity hammock. Zippy would revel in the blatant commercialization. In fact, this whole antigravitational yoga sounds like a scheme hatched up by Zippy's friend Shelf Life, who knows a thing or two about "the next big thing."
It is only when you understand Zippy the Pinhead that you will be able to achieve enlightenment, grasshopper. That, combined, with antigravitational yoga, will allow you to finally hear the sound of one hand clapping. As Zippy says, only then will you be able to "walk a mile in my muu-muu."
