Let's not get things twisted, this is some weird asana stuff. We've been talking about it, wondering what the heck it's about and now it's finally here, the trailer for Kevin Smith's yoga superhero comedy horror Yoga Hosers has arrived. And it's...pretty much as wacky as we expected considering the oddball premise: Take two convenience store clerks, [...]

This is some much-needed fantastic news you can share with all your friends and family...and, no, it has nothing to do with putting your feet over your head, Uncle Charlie. A recent study found that yoga, yes yoga, is better at keeping your memory sharp than all those puzzles and brain training apps you download [...]
