'Breaking Your Neck-Asana'

'Breaking Your Neck-asana', is a discovery. It is a new type of yoga. The extreme-sport of anti-yoga, a new term of practice and lifestyle. Everything, pieces to pieces, created to oppose traditional yoga. It's a table turned upside down, and let me tell you, it is probably the best way to praise your self-destructivity, and honor it with misery and hopelessness. Why not make this a lifestyle? One with style. Self-declared anti-yoga guru Espen Swynasamana made a new standard to anti-lifestyle. He began studying traditional yoga-paths and styles, and began to feel the need to extend his own horizon and begin something fresh, as more challenging. The 'Breaking Your Neck-asana' was created by going through every yoga-posture and doing it as wrongly as possibly possible. Espen Swynasamana says that 'Breaking your neck-asana' is a discovery. It is the first anti-yoga to be made, focusing the channeling of pain and aches of limbs and bone through 'correct' movement and posture, and striving for anatomic defection. Ofcourse, breathing is not allowed. Not until you feel exhausted enough to simply give up, and lie down. The posture for giving up, or resting, is called, 'Lie Down and Die-salutation'. In this posture you are allowed to breathe, but only if you are choking, otherwise carry on with the insufferably, intolerably aches of the sequence. If you make it to sequence b of the primary series, you should be lucky you are alive, and you will be ever grateful you are done for the day of anti-yoga. Afterwards you will not feel a good sensation, but afterwards you will mysteriously shape a feeling of gratitude because you seemed to have survived. This is the secret of 'Breaking Your Neck-asana'.

Introverted Man (Poem)

the man of the deep forest path
always stopping up
carefully thinking through
always reflecting
here and there
sometimes backwards
sometimes straight forward
always thinking
..of the next move
..of a possible way
mostly silent in contemplation
rarely verbal
respecting the ways and unways
carrying the shifting eyes to facial contour
like a representable chart of many colors, tones, and undertones
always smiling
fake or not
but a smile is all there is to it
and everything will be alright
every experience
has a positive drift about
the everlasting thoughts
popping up
colorised by the soul
taking external form
smiling always
energy formed positive
sometimes shallow
sometimes deep
always servitude

introverted man of the deep forest path
a most definite characteristic
undertaking the adventure
of insight, knowledge, and seemingly useless reflection
seemingly to no end, as no avail
but in the end
he controlled the strings
and the smile he was dressed
hid him well
