I’ll be quite honest, the sudden: This professor has had trouble separating Yoga and Yoda.
And I’m not sure why.
After all, the similarities end at the names. I mean, could you really see Yoda making these sort of moves?
Yeah, me neither. And this brings us to a great fact of life: Yoda is the most un-agile creature ever–unless he’s fighting Count Dooku.
But anyways, in order to stop equating yoga and Yoda, this professor stepped into a a Yoda place the other day. I mean yoga.
It was a mistake.
There was a woman in the oddest position ever, stretched out on a mat. But even though she was seemingly tied up in a not, she was up and facing me in less than a second.
In fact, it was so fast, I wasn’t able to respond to her question.
I was still in shock, see.
“Can I help you?” she asked.
She just stood there smiling.
Eventually: “Yes, you see, what’s the principle difference between Yoga and Yoda?”
It was a bad first question, I admit.
She laughed a bit. “Are you looking to get into Yoga?”
Then I got my professorish momentum back. “Oh no,” I said, beginning to walk about the place.
See, never stand straight without moving. This allows the other person the upper-hand. If you’re constantly moving about, the other person is immediately put on the defense. Since they have to follow you about and speak to you at the same time.
That’s a hard thing to do. Especially for girls.
Sure enough, she started to follow me about. I was also spying while walking. Good time to spy.
“Then…” She seemed confused. “Can I help you?”
“Not at all, you know,” I said. “I just wanted to see if anyone actually did Yoga.”
I looked about the empty room.
“The class is in a few hours.”
“How many guys do it?”
She was perplexed. “A…few?”
“How many professors?”
“Good day, madam.”
I was able to keep the attacker off-balance and spy at the same time.
It was a good day.
Conclusion: Both Yoda and Yoga share another similarity; the force is a part of both, and will end up destroying both.
