Jason Ward, student at Be Here Now Yoga Center, had his own reason for being there, then. During a Wednesday noon primary series Ashtanga yoga class, he found himself anticipating an upcoming pose that would allow him to glance at his attractive neighbor’s hindquarters.
Ward, 27, generally does attend class for health benefits. However, he can’t help but to always look forward to this one upcoming pose during which everyone will stand facing to the right, straddle, bend forward, and look up.
“It’s called Prasarita Padottanasana. It’s great for the psoas and hamstrings. And if I relax my gaze exactly where the teacher says to, I’ll inadvertently get a good look at this woman’s ass. Not that I’m trying to look or anything. I’m just going to listen to the instructions of the teacher.”
The woman to his right remained unidentified during the interview. Chances are, confessed Jason, he would begin thinking during Savasana of impressive yoga-type things to say to her after class. Like, “I totally aced Janusirsasana”, or, “Halasana? More like Chakrasana!”.
At the time of this interview, his creepy moment, Prasarita Padottanasana, was still a few poses away. “So, if you’ll excuse me,” he said, “I have to get ready to pay attention to the teacher now. I don’t want to miss anything.”
