If you want to reach out and touch your inner self, find a connection with the spirit of mother earth (gaia) or lose that cramp that's been bugging you through the weekend, there's no better place (places) than the million yoga/alternative thearpy/quacks that've sprouted up throughout the city with the higher purpose of fleecing high society housewives of their husband's earnings and foreigners of some valuable and much needed foreign exchange. i happened to have the fortune of interviewing one of these gentlemen of higher being recently, based in a basement with the giant cutout of a tiger and lots of mirrors.
Gentleman of higher being: you're late
Gentlemen of higher being: OOPS! oops ain't no country i've heard of! do they speak english in oops!?!
Gentlemen of higher being: english motherfucker! do you speak it...
Gentlemen of higher being: then you know what i'm saying
Interviewer: (cowering) yes
Gentlemen of higher being: Good! then let's get on with the interview. Yes, why were you late...
Interviewer: couldn't find the place
Gentlemen of higher being: COULDN'T FIND THE PLACE! HEAR THAT EENA! that's ridiculous, this is the most well known basement in all of Hauz Khas
Eena: this is just not done, it's a saturday and Sensei (read Gentlemen of higher being) has three corporate workshops and several home visits lined up for the day
Interviewer: i'm sorry, i just...(breaks down)
Gentlemen of higher being: ok, let's just get this over and done with...
Interviewer: yes (controls himself), so what do you do here
Gentlemen of higher being: we initiate sentinel beings into the mystic art of yoga and also give salsa lessons
Interviewer: wow, so is that like a holistic approach
Gentlemen of higher being: no, it's more of what's called a surround all encompassing 360 degrees holistic approach
Gentlemen of higher being: Yes
Interviewer: and is there something else you do
Gentlemen of higher being: Yes, we often go out for coffee together, see, the whole point of this is to generate some warmth in what's a cold and harsh world
