Here are some things you’ll need for yoga class:
* A comfortable pair of sweatpants
* A tank-top. Or a t-shirt. Something you’re cool working out in, really.
* Socks, maybe.
* A mat, maybe.
* Maybe one of those rubber band things
Here are some things you’ll really never need
* A baby to swing and fling about wildly
I’m really just addressing this message to Lena Fokina, the Russian Viral video star who teaches “baby swinging yoga”.Â Â Like, yoga where babies get flung about. For real. According to her recent interview:
The first thing everybody here thought when they saw your baby-swinging video was “Holy shit!” Then they thought, is it real or fake? So: Is it real? If so, who is the baby?
The child was born in the Black Sea region. Her name is Platona, and she was two weeks old when we took that video. We have a lot of children like her here. They are early readers, singers, talkers, swimmers. You haven’t seen anything like it anywhere!! And there’s swimming with dolphins, scuba diving with themâ€¦ Come to Dahab.
Incidentally, when scuba diving, you’ll probably need a wet suit, and an oxygen tank, and certification. You probably won’t need a baby.
