Good day sunshine! Happy Spring everyone…we made it! Let’s hope the rest of the year follows today’s progression…from murky cold to beautiful sunshine. Can’t say it hasn’t been a clouded pensive week here at YD…
let’s review This Week in Yoga…
Deep in the gray we wondered whether or not yoga mags will survive the economic crisis, with only just a few still standing and many migrating to higher ground online. [Are All Yoga Mags Approaching Extinction?]
Taking a booze break, we donned green beer goggles for St. Paddy’s and enjoyed the best of Bikram’s colorful quote-making mouth (and lucky charms: atom bomb balls), courtesy of YogaDawg.
With AIG bailouts on everyone’s brain we couldn’t help pondering the state of the yoga union, and the outlook for yoga teachers doesn’t seem so sunny. [Teaching Yoga, the New Waiting Tables for the Non-Rich]
And then there was a beacon of yoga business success…the secret’s too good to be true.[Cult of Commerciality: Lululemon’s Agenda of ‘Calculated Nonchalance’ At Yoga’s Expense]
It wasn’t all bad news though. There is still some Recession-Resilience! [Bits of the Day: Baba Ramdev Yoganomics; Pure Yoga Expanding!]
And Parker Posey is an Ashtanga Yogi.
That’s a wrap…enjoy your “affordable escapism” outdoors this weekend! Have a good one.
