Hilaria Baldwin — Alec Baldwin’s yoga instructor wife and mother of his baby daughter — is doing some Instagram challenge, posting a daily photo of herself doing yoga with the hashtag #yogapostureoftheday. This is one way to make use of your grossly expensive designer stove! I’m inspired! I’m starting late, but for the rest of… READ MORE »

You might be sick to death of me writing about yoga. If you are, my apologies. But there’s one last thing I have to cover before I go back to resting in child’s pose. The other day I saw a friend’s Facebook status and it disheartened me so much that I could not remain silent. READ MORE »

Trigger warning: this video and the text below contain accounts of rape and sexual assault.  

On last night’s “Nightline,” three of Bikram Choudhury’s five sexual assault accusers bravely came forward to talk about the horrors they suffered at the hands of the yoga guru. Honestly, I had read about the charges, but the… READ MORE »

Oh for fuck’s sake, fine, I’ll respond to the click-baiting article about yoga on xoJane. A writer going by the name of Jen Caron (her real name, Jen Polachek, was removed as the byline following the backlash to her article) has written the following essay: “It Happened To Me: There Are No Black People In… READ MORE »

Last week, during a four-hour flight delay at JFK airport, Laughter Yoga “Stylist and Coach” Francine Shore led the group of stressed passengers through a 20-minute “laughter meditation” session. No word on whether it helped soothe the dejected travelers. But an innocent bystander took some video… READ MORE »

This time of year is tough. These cold months between the holidays and the first day of spring are like one giant, perpetual Monday staring you in the face. I’m generally a pretty happy-go-lucky person, but when the chilly months roll around, my personality changes. I get down in the dumps over just about everything.

I have mixed feelings about the series photographer Peter Hegre posted on Reddit of his wife, Luba Shumeyko, doing super-advanced yoga poses in the buff. One the one hand, the photographs are undeniably beautiful. On the other hand, well, a lot of things. I hate that they perpetuate the myth that yoga poses are supposedREAD MORE »

The last time I did yoga was more than a decade ago, when a couple friends and I took a weekly class at the gym for a few months. Even then, I was kind of a slacker who lurked in the back of class muttering obscenities about downward dog (not sure if it’s big boobsREAD MORE »

With all the unflattering Lululemon headlines this past year, and CEO Chip Wilson’s recent resignation, it was only matter of time before one of the overly friendly, insanely in shape employees opened their gluten-free yappers about what was going on behind the scenes at the yoga retail empire. Mary Mann did us that favor. InREAD MORE »

It’s not enough to practice yoga for the health and well-being of your mind and body. What to do about your sagging face? No problem. Annelise Hagen wrote a book about how to eliminate wrinkles by doing face yoga. Sure, you can do an hour of Satchmos, Marionettes, Prom Queens  and Smiling Fish Faces or… READ MORE »

I know that naked yoga exists (if only in the deep recess of my consciousness, right near the part of my brain that remembers to do taxes each year). So far, this naked yoga trend has been mostly a male-only endeavor. Go figure. Women are already weary of being leered at by mnn in theirREAD MORE »

Yogis, rejoice! O’Hare International Airport in Chicago now has a yoga room! The room is open from 6 am – 10 pm, and according to aviation commissioner Rosemarie Andolino, it serves as an “oasis for passengers.” O’Hare is one of the nation’s busiest airports, so an oasis is exactly what its visitors probably need!

Dear dudes, let this be your subtle hint. Yoga is a good look on you. Should you need motivation to get going with your own asana practice, let these guys inspire you.

Earlier this week, Lululemon’s founder, Chip Wilson, made a boneheaded comment in response to the sheer batch of yoga pants that the company had to recall earlier this year.

“Frankly, some women’s bodies just don’t actually work [for the yoga pants] … It’s more really about the rubbing through the thighs, how much pressure… READ MORE »
