There’s A Lot More Than See-Through Yoga Pants To Fear At Lululemon,Like Murder

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. In her Salon expose, the former retail employee (known in Lulu lingo as “educators”) at New York City’s Union Square location told all about the cult-like company which offered free exercise classes in lieu of health insurance, forced employees to make 10-year-goal lists to hang in their stores, encouraged them to attend self-help seminars on the company’s dime and created a fake,”ideal” customer named Ocean. Gulp. Oh yeah, and there was an “educator” murder/suicide while she worked there that sounds like it was ripped from an Investigation Discovery special. After the jump, a few of Mann’s most bizarre revelations that made me frightened enough to want to buy yoga pants elsewhere. Keep reading »

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 you can just eat an entire bag of potato chips, smell your own farts and laugh like a psychopath. Same difference. [Cosmopolitan]

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 their tight Lululemon pants. Chelsea’s Bold & Naked Yoga studio is foraging ahead into the all-naked yoga word. They will be the first in New York City to add all-female and co-ed nude classes to their schedule.

“If you are looking for an orgasm, you are in the wrong place,” said owner Joschi Schwarz. “I know sexuality is always in peoples’ minds and I have a feeling that a lot of people don’t know that yoga has nothing to do with sex at all…When you get rid of the clothes, you get rid of the labels — and that’s a beautiful thing.”  Keep reading »
