Vampires and Yoga

In the middle of yoga class yesterday, Siouxsie’s yoga teacher started talking about vampires.

What follows is not an exact transcript, but pretty close.

Yoga teacher to class:

Yoga is  not a fantasy.  Yoga is real.  Yoga is not like vampires. Vampires are a fantasy, one that happens to be really popular right now.  Anyone who believes vampires are real is crazy.  Seriously, if you think vampires are real you are totally messed up.

Siouxsie might be paranoid, but she can’t help thinking that her teacher intended the vampire sermon for her.   Siouxsie is the only openly goth person at yoga.  But even more, Siouxsie is the proud owner of the above-pictured yoga bag.  The one with the giant bat painted on it.   Siouxsie will admit she likes bats (they make a bad-ass power animal).  And while Siouxsie enjoys vampire mythology, she doesn’t think vampires are actually real.

Siouxsie, coincidentally, just found out today that she is anemic.  She doesn’t want to drink your blood though.  She just wants to find a good iron supplement that won’t make her nauseous.

Bonus book suggestion:  A Discovery of Witches, a novel that “conjures a brew of a number of pop literature elements, starting with an illicit love affair between an American scholar and athlete, who happens to be a witch, and a 1,500-year-old, wine-loving, yoga-practicing vampire.”

  1. Wait? Not real? Not even a little? Like a long time ago? Like unicorns?

    Love you!

  2. I think you need to go to your next class in full vampire drag. You need the cape, pancake makeup, and fangs.

  3. Firstly, super cool yoga bag and secondly, why is she picking on goths via vampires, a lot of peeps think yoga is nonsense too, naughty yoga teacher!
    Funny post 🙂 Love yoga, Love Vampires, Love ‘People Are Strange’ ( blipped that today…spoooooky) Love your blog 🙂

    • Thanks, bats are way better than lotus flowers. I like to think my yoga teacher is a closet vampire-loving freak at heart, but hasn’t come to terms with it yet.

  4. Cooking with cast iron pots and pans does it for me. I’ve been a vegetarian for a long time. Maybe longer then you have been alive.

    Love the yoga bag. I need a new one and you have my crafting genes tingling.

    Hugs, Euphoria

    • Yay about the yoga bag!

      I need to use my cast iron skillet more. Technically, if you count my past lives I’m more than 700 years old. So, unless you have been vegetarian in all of your past lives, maybe not. 🙂

      I meant to tell you I had my tea party. Everyone was sick. But it went well;I’ll try to post some pics.

  5. […] Of course, we darklings are generally well-rounded human beings, and as such might actually *gasp* enjoy activities and pasttimes not beloved by the Gothy hivemind as a whole. If one of your guilty pleasures happens to be a sport or other form of cardio, you don’t have to turn in your Goth card each time you enter the gym. What’s wrong with, for example, my badminton ‘uniform’ of band tee, black trackies, and black and pink trainers? Or better still, SiouxsieLaw’s epically awesome bat yoga bag? […]
