Students who arrive late to large yoga classes sometimes have trouble finding space for their mat.

I usually point to a minuscule spot and tell them, "Put it there and don't worry - the others will make space for you....

just like you're the Baby Ruth Bar in the pool scene in Caddyshack."

(which, sadly, cannot be embedded).

(and which, sadly, many of today's young yoga aficionados have not seen).

Inevitably, those whose mats are nearby will move away as quickly as they can....

as if the new person were the candy bar, and they're the members of the country club.
