What Yoga Teachers Do—the Meme.

Everyone else has one, why not yoga teachers?

[Created by Roger Wolsey. Thank you to Cynthia Beard for your Photoshop skills!]

Here’s one someone made for my profession. They pretty much nailed it.

It’s good to poke fun at ourselves, and each other, which is the same thing. It’s also good to be “known.”



Roger Wolsey is an ordained United Methodist pastor and the author of Kissing Fish: christianity for people who don’t like christianity. He blogs for Elephant Journal, Patheos, and Huffington Post. He’s been doing yoga somewhat seriously for the past 7 years. His best friend is a yoga teacher… one of the best in Boulder…. but he’s got his eye on other work down the road.

Roger Wolsey is a free-spirited GenX-er who thinks and feels a lot about God and Jesus.

He’s a progressive Christian who identifies with people who consider themselves as being “spiritual but not religious.” He came of age during the “Minneapolis sound” era and enjoyed seeing The Replacements, The Jayhawks, Husker Du, The Wallets, Trip Shakespeare, Prince, and Soul Asylum in concert—leading to strong musical influences to his theology. He earned his Masters of Divinity degree at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, CO. Roger is an ordained pastor in the United Methodist Church and he currently serves as the director of the Wesley Foundation campus ministry at C.U. in Boulder, CO. He was married for ten years, divorced in 2005 and now co-parents a delightful 10-year old son. Roger loves live music, hosting house concerts, rock-climbing, yoga, centering prayer, trail-running with his dog Kingdom, dancing, camping, riding his motorcycle, blogging, and playing his trumpet in ska bands and music projects. He’s recently written a book Kissing Fish: christianity for people who don’t like christianity
