When the Yoga Teacher Fantasy is Far From Fulfilled
After months of yoga and flirty small talk with the instructors, I built up the courage to ask one of the instructors out.
I met her late night at a bar downtown to find her two drinks ahead of me. Two more and she was dancing. For a woman so composed and graceful in class, it was unbelievable how little rhythm she had. We laughed and continued our flirt. She invited me back to her place. I drove her car back. Her place was a mess…clothes scattered everywhere, dirty dishes in the sink, leftover takeout chinese on the kitchen table, dozens of half empty shampoo bottles in the bathroom, and an unmade bed. It was a red flag, but I gave her the benefit of the doubt.
We hooked up. I turned down sex given her drunk state but we we had fun. Late night, she passed out and I stayed the night. I woke to a 3am alarm and a slight moist feeling. She was out cold. I hopped out off her bed to turn off the noise. “Who has a 3am alarm?!” I asked myself.
I looked back at the bed to find my yoga instructor stark naked in the fetal position with a halo of urine around her. A dozen things ran through my mind…Did I piss her bed? I was completely dry, so definitely not. I looked at the ceiling for a leak. Nothing there. I noticed a second set of sheets on the floor, likely from an accident earlier in the week. Now I knew what the alarm was for…
In the early morning she tried to play off like I pissed her bed. I held my ground, she then brushed off the whole thing as a non-event and tore the sheets off her bed.
I continued with yoga. The flirting dwindled, but she was professional enough not to let the whole thing make for awkward classes. So much for hot yoga instructors…
