Well THAT was an odd question

I attend a semi-private yoga class on Tuesdays. Same 6 ladies in the class every week. I have been there off and on for a year, the other women longer.

In the middle of class today while moving from one position to a new position the teacher stops and says to me (btw I'm in the back of the class so she had to be a bit loud for me to hear her) "Jen are you on your period today?"

WHAT????? Omg! Do I smell? Do I look bloated? Do I have something on my clothes? WHY on earth would she ask me that?

"No" I said kind if sheepishly. Then she says "oh, have you stopped having periods?"
"No"
"Ok let's do this next position."

After class I ask why she questioned me. She said that the new position was not good to do while bleeding. I guess she only asked me because she knew the other women had already gone through menopause.

I guess she could have just made a class announcement to all instead of singling you out!

I agree that question was rude and she should have explained herself before she jumped to the question.

I would have been a smart ass about it but that's normal for me! What an awkward position!

 Wow, that wouldn't have bothered, but basically I'm about the bluntest most P inC person ever, but i could see where that would really offend other's (i do make an effort to be sensitive to those who aren't used to me).  i would have probably asked if she needed a tampon.

I soooooo wasnt offended.... just taken by surprise.  (take a hell of a lot more than that to offend me).

I have been with the same 6 ladies EVERY class for well over a year.... longer for them.  Im guessing that they have all gone through menopause and have done that particular position before.  This is the first time I had done that position.
