Watch what happened when comedian Fabrizio Goldstein, who goes by the stage name “Fat Jew,” taught free yoga in a New York City subway station, which, in hot weather, mimics the exact temperature and humidity in a Bikram class. If you’ve felt it, it’s truly unbearable. Just like hot yoga! Although he’s a funny man,… READ MORE »

In the light of recent sex scandals involving yoga “gurus” Bikram Choudhury and John Friend, Miami-based Budokon teacher, Cameron Shayne (pictured above), who’s known as the “world authority on yogic and martial arts integration,” penned a lengthy, braggy, philosophically dense missive for RebelleSociety.com about why having sex with students is totally ethical. In his piece,READ MORE »

Life is stressful and chaotic and scary and it doesn’t come with a handbook. Day-to-day life can get so crazy that it’s hard to remember how beautiful life is. When I moved to New York City for college and life got even crazier, I knew I had to find a way to calm myself down fast. READ MORE »

Although Abercrombie & Fitch has been hit hard with criticism for not carrying larger sizes in stores, they’re far from the only company ignoring the plus-size customer base. We already knew anything over size 10 is considered “plus size” at Forever 21. Now, according to Huffington Post, Lululemon Athletica, a Canadian clothing company that focuses… READ MORE »

I was groaning while reading Boston.com’s feature on “Broga,” yoga geared toward bros (although women are welcome … GEE THANKS!). “This is not a dumbed down version of yoga. There’s a lot of movement linking the postures, but adding push-ups and variations of squats. People see the name ‘Broga’ and they think it’s just a bunch… READ MORE »

People tend to fixate on very specific mental images when it comes to yoga and sex. They hear Yoga Sutra and think Kama Sutra. They remember that story they once read about the Orgasmic Meditation (OM) movement or naked yoga or yogasms. They picture the cheesy movie scenes where men watch a sex video and… READ MORE »

…unless you thought it was the horse doing yoga.

No it’s doing yoga, on a horse. And apparently, it’s a thing.

You don’t even have to bring your own horse.  Just head to Arizona and look for crazy women wearing pink bandanas attending a “She-vent” at Hidden Meadow Ranch.  With any luck,… READ MORE »

Sometimes I do not have anything deeper to say other than “Shut up.”

And those are my choice words for the California parents who are suing their children’s school district over yoga classes being taught in a class.  That’s not very Zen, is it?  … READ MORE »

Dear M,

You are the hottest yoga teacher I’ve ever had. And that’s saying a lot because I’ve been practicing for 16 years now. Your body, your face, your demeanor … all extremely HOT. But here’s the weird thing: I am not physically attracted to you in the least. Not at all. I… READ MORE »

Okay, so confession: I hate yoga. I am just not a yoga person, but hey, if it works for you, awesome. Clearly it’s working for Vanessa Hudgens, seen here leaving a class with her mat in tow. You know, this is an aside, but I really feel like Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez need to… READ MORE »

I’ve been hitting yoga hard since I got back from Paris, trying rid my system of that stinky camembert, which is still probably having sex and making cheese babies in my digestive tract. And also, because I love yoga and I’ve been practicing on and off for the last 16 years. I basically need it… READ MORE »

Russell Brand attended a yoga class with his mom over the weekend, and he wore, well, exactly what you might expect Russell Brand to wear to a yoga class: slouchy white T-shirt, transparent white harem pants tucked into waffle-knit legwarmers, flip-flops, and an eclectic selection of jewelry. As much as I admire him for bringing… READ MORE »

A week out from Hurricane Sandy, the East Coast has been hit by a new storm — a snowy, slushy Nor’easter. Dear Mayan Prophecy, we get it! We get it! It’s with that in mind that I think all of us over in these here parts (and heck, just about everyone) would benefit frm adding… READ MORE »

It usually starts with widened eyes and a slight lift of the eyebrows.

As I walk over to greet a new student, they slowly stick out their hand to meet mine. “Hi, I’m Anna. I’m so glad you’re here!”

“Hi,” they say back. “You’re the … teacher?” … READ MORE »

Most yoga classes start out with a request to turn off or silence your cellphones, and a tacit understanding that if you do pull out your wireless device during class, you’re going to get some disapproving looks from the teacher and your classmates. As was the case during a lunchtime yoga class at Facebook headquarters,… READ MORE »

I was late to yoga, and when I walked in, carrying too many things, everyone was already on their mats.

Yoga is still really new for me. It still feels awkward and difficult, and I’m still at the point where I feel really proud of myself for going. Look at you, being allREAD MORE »
