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 festivals we…

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 whe…

Well today's your lucky day because a few yogi-friendly meccas are making spiritual vacays a little 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…

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

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…

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]…

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…

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.
