Doing one of these things may get something else flowing (other than her vinyasa):
1. When you want to do something with her, be sure to end your question with, “you down, dog?”
“I feel like saving the world, you down, dog?”“Let’s plant organic carrots in a community garden, you down, dog?”
2. If you get in a fight and she tells you to leave, look her in the eye and sweetly say, “Nah-imma-stay.”
3. Tell her you like the way she makes your chakras feel.
4. Instead of whispering “sweet nothings” in her ear, try softly chanting: “Om nimaya shiva, baby” or “Shanti, shanti, shanti, om, sweetheart.”
And when things start to get more serious than a yoga teacher in a Bikram class on a full moon:
5. Give her a yogi pet name, like [little] Ganesha (reminding her that she helps remove all obstacles in your life) or [beautiful] Warrior (letting her know she’s the girl that helps inspire you to stay strong).
