Christoga: Ex-“Northern Exposure” Star Janine Turner Presents Yoga For Christians

Don’t blame me for the term “Christoga” — I didn’t make it up, Janine Turner did. The former actress — made famous for her role on “Northern Exposure” — has a new path in life and that’s to bring yoga to devout Christians. See, yoga in its inception is rooted in Hindu mythology and… More »


Do Yoga And Booze Make A Good Cocktail?

I made a bunch of resolutions for myself for 2010, among them to attend yoga at least three times a week. For a few months last year, I actually made it to class four times a week, but the further we got into the dark season, my winter doldrums set in and I just couldn’t… More »


Product Review: Manduka High Performance Yoga Mat

I’m no yoga pro, but I do the best I can, ya’ know? Since I started practicing, I’ve been using a variety of yoga mats. You know, the usual kind, that generic, foamy, I-don’t-know-what-the-brand-is type. But I’m super-tall, and I kept practically falling off my mat every time I did downward dog. I needed a… More »


Yoga Jeans: What Has The World Come To?

We’ve opposed it, but tights continue to be viewed as pants by many. And, last spring, jeans fused with leggings to become “jeggings.” Now, exercise apparel company Athleta is trying to sell us on their Bettona Pant, “a yoga pant that thinks it’s a jean.” With a faux fly, rivets at the pockets, and contrast… More »


Don’t Get It Twisted At The Yoga Competition

NYMag.com sent a fearless reporter into the heart of yoga cutthroatism at the seventh annual Yoga Asana Competition in New York City. More than a few of The Frisky ladies are yoga devotees. Speaking for myself, I can’t do anything like what these people are doing here — or, like, I can do it,… More »


Throw Out Your Designer Handbag And Get A Guru!

When I was in college, I fancied myself very enlightened with my five-day-a-week yoga practice, my lotus flower tattoo, and my tattered copy of the Daoist text Zen Mind, Beginner Mind. Post-college, I experimented even more with New Age spirituality. There were Indian sweat lodges, psychic vortex tours, aura pendulum readings, natal chart mappings, and… More »


Stay Far, Far Away From This Yoga Farm!

This is, by far, one of the creepiest videos I have ever seen. There are so many weird things about it, I don’t even know where to start. But I’d like to say that the guy’s jeans are so tight I’m surprised he can do yoga at all, let alone put his head… More »


An Indie Rock And Yoga Festival? Other Summer Gatherings Of Our Dreams

Last weekend, a festival called “Wanderlust” rocked the beautiful hills of Lake Tahoe, California. This festival combines sweet musicians like Andrew Bird, Girl Talk, Broken Social Scene, and Jenny Lewis with yoga classes taught by pros. Sadly we missed it, but we still think that’s a pretty sweet combo. [WanderlustFestival.com]

Here are some… More »


How Much Is Too Much When It Comes To Yoga Duds?

I was walking by my local Lucky Jeans boutique today on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, when I spotted this peculiar sign outside: “Free Week of Yoga When You Purchase 2 Tanks for $30.” It’s a bit of a random promotion that kind of reminded me of Michael Moore getting a free gun when… More »


Will Work For Yoga

Chi feeling totally out of whack but you don’t have the cash to get that thing realigned at a fancy yoga retreat? (Clearly we have no idea what Chi actually is and have confused it with your spine.) Well today’s your lucky day because a few yogi-friendly meccas are making spiritual vacays a little more… More »


Have You Flossed Your Nasal Passages Today?

The nose has been making news recently. First, nose waxing becomes trendy. And now, we’ve learned that nose flossing is a part of some people’s daily hygiene routine. Rubber Neti is an ancient yogic technique in which a piece of string or tubing is inserted into a nostril, pulled through the mouth, and then both… More »


Quickies!: White House Designer-In-Chief, J.Lo’s Lame Missing Ring Excuse, Lady Gaga Fashion

You should be watching “Friday Night Lights,” even if you don’t like football. The show features one of the most realistic portrayals of a married couple on TV today. [Your Tango]
Michael Smith has been tapped to redecorate the White House for the Obamas, but we’re really not impressed with his Los Angeles home. It… More »


One More Reason To Give Yoga A Try

A study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine reports that sexually unsatisfied women who practiced mindfulness and yoga reported improved levels of arousal and desire, as well as better orgasms. Why not try following along with a yoga podcast today? It could have you saying “om” all night long. [LiveScience] … More »


My 2009 New Year’s Resolutions

This week, The Frisky will be revealing their oh-so-ambitious resolutions for 2009. We encourage you to submit yours in the comments — maybe you’ll inspire others to adapt the same resolutions and at the very least you’ll get some support. Especially for your resolution to eat more donuts this year. That’s something we can allMore »


Yoga Does A Body Good

Sometimes when I’m in my hippie-dippy yoga classes I think that some of what I’m hearing is a load of hooey. A couple weeks ago, the teacher in my class (who happens to be, not to brag, I swear, Uma Thurman’s brother) was talking about how we store emotional issues and trauma in our body… More »


Yoga For People Who Would Rather Gossip

If you’re a lazy yogi like me, now you can get your asana on from home, while reading Perez Hilton. An NYC yoga instructor put together a yoga practice specifically for the bubble-butted gossip slag and then posted it on YouTube. [YouTube] … More »


Crave: Downward Dog Anywhere, Anytime!

I’m a sporadic yoga doer. When I do tend to go is on the weekends, after I’ve lazily slept, digested an omelet, and read Page Six magazine. But sometimes I want to go on the fly, like after work, or when I happen to be near my yoga studio (i.e. I’m shopping at Forever 21… More »


Dark Roots: Childless In The City

I like kids. Not enough to have one of my own, but I like them. Especially the ones that can walk, talk, and fetch me Diet Coke. When I was a kid, children were a form of cheap labor — “Take out the garbage!” “Clean your room!” — and we did not commingle with adults. More »
