the fat yoga teacher

i've been watching a lot of v-me, pbs' spanish language channel,
because the rest of the channels are crap and to improve my spanish.
every morning they show aire yoga. it's a great to learn verbs for
body movements, though mostly in command form. but that's not the best
the teacher, Anna Silvetti, is a certified fat lady and she is
awesome. i've never seen anyone who wasn't a contortionist bend like
that. and from my admittedly meager spanish, she doesn't seem to talk
about weight loss at all. increasing flexibility, feeling centered in
your body, yes. but not a single thing about weight.
i'm almost tempted to grab some floor space and give it a try after
watching her.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.
