Hungarian dialogue, oh my!
I floated through one of the strongest classes in months, lulled by Krisztina’s singing voice conjuring un-yogic thoughts with tantric countdowns and numerous calls to “platform fairies” who were obviously floating above us somewhere, at the ready to guide us in and out of our hot, blissfully sweaty asanas.
It was my most pleasurable Bikram Yoga class to date and a perfect introduction to Hungary!
Please explain, you ask? After class I met Robert aka RAM (an American living in Budapest since 2004) and as we chatted with Krisztina about the all Hungarian dialogue, Robert exclaimed he’d managed to pick up a few snippets of the Hungarian during his last 6 months of practice, namely “platform fairy”. With a laugh Krisztina hastily corrected this misnomer to “Plafon Felè” which roughly translates to “towards the ceiling”.
Too late Krisztina, those sexy platform fairies have been whispering in my ear ever since!
