Yoga Stretch

My wife joined yoga to stretch out her core;
Though extreme moves sometimes made her holler.
Yet when they raised fees, it hurt a lot more,
So she now has to stretch out a dollar.

Downward Dog used to give satisfaction,
But her teacher has tightened the collar.
When before, body and mind felt as one,
Now she’s training how to stretch a dollar.

She enjoyed spending time with her fit friends
To become a true yoga follower,
But ever since her teach bought a new Benz,
My wife spends more time stretching a dollar.

After years she became one of the pros,
So that I call her, my yoga scholar,
But now she can’t rise up from a Corpse Pose;
It can be deadly stretching a dollar.

Her last session ended with Namaste,
Yet our budget has not gotten smaller.
Since deciding at yoga, she must stay,
Because she learned how to stretch that dollar.

    I love the humor. Yoga is often taken too seriously, as religion or a way of life rather than a connection with the self (this from someone who can't begin to do The Plank). Jack

    Your sense of humor bleeds through your work...I love it! I'm also a fan of yoga, but I do it at home for free!
