Re: “The Trouble with Modern Times,” Modine’s New Orleans column, by Modine Gunch. January 2010 issue.

Modine’s New Orleans in the January 2010 of the New Orleans Magazine is a believable story considering what’s about to be mentioned. Years ago, 31 years to be exact, I decided to study yoga. It began at the YMCA in Metairie and then advanced to a yoga studio Uptown.

In those days the sophistication of designer pads hadn’t yet entered the scene of serious yoga studios. All padding that students would use for floor postures consisted of remnant pieces of carpet or some homemade padding creation to ensure that one’s back didn’t engage the hard floor that was part of the yoga studios at that time.

Often it’s recalled before settling down into quiet reflection prior to a yoga class that it could not be unnoticed the kind of pads that fellow students unrolled – some were very unique pieces of carpet that seemed to age with the passage of attending classes.

Modine’s experience with “the sticky mat” has to be one of the funniest and the best written by Modine Gunch. It is once again to be said “believable.”

It is hoped that Modine will continue to inform her readers of the challenges and solutions that she handles so delightfully. Her column is one that’s most enjoyed, especially if you’ve been born and reared in New Orleans.
