yoga-day-canada-2009-logoYoga Day Canada, Feb 28: Well it doesn’t quite have the ring of Yoga Day USA, but yogadorks of the great white north can still have their own day of yoga awareness and free studio marketing too. Indeed, Yoga Day Canada 2009 is set for this Saturday February 28. Hadn’t heard about it? No worries, you’re probably not Canadian! If you are, go to the official website for more info on participating studios and how to get your free yoga on. [Yoga Day Canada]

swami-ramdev-seated-yoga-guruBaba Ramdev 24/7 like 7-Eleven: Seriously? By now we’ve been conditioned not to flinch when hearing news about the Swamster’s next business venture – he’s already conquered the internet, the food industry , and has been a staple of India’s “faith tv channel” Aastha with his 5 1/2 hour yoga shows (Aastha is shown across 170 countries, with 20 million viewership). So it’s hardly surprising to hear about his new 24-hour TV channels (there are 2) to be launched in April, and frankly we don’t know what took him so long. The first channel will feature Indian and traditional music, like bhajans, and the second will focus on propagating the Vedas.  Next up for Ramdev? Political cleansing. [Times of India]

pure-yoga-green-brown-wallPure Yoga Wall of the Living Dead: Sadly, the Pure Yoga  “green” wall that was once so plush and fancy-free hasn’t weathered so well through the winter. And now the poor thing is being choked by oppressive scaffolding. Damn you NYC construction! *shakes fists* We swear this town will be great once they’ve finished building it. And perhaps the green wall will be sprung back to life once Spring comes (provided upper east siders can still afford the luxury).  [A Fine Company]

  • i love you yogadork.
    there i’ve said it.

    and i feel better.

  • Very nicely summarized achievements of Swami Ramdev.
    BTW in words of Swami ji, his intention is not to conquer TV, Media, Food processing industry, but to establish the good things in society – for this he wants to setup and example, and lead the effort starting from himself.
