Oh, you knew this was coming. We glimpsed a photo of Ms. Nadya Suleman in the latest issue of Us weekly (we’re not ashamed) clad in workout clothes performing a little side bend action and thought, oh boy she’s “fit” now and we bet yoga is the culprit. Why? Because yoga’s all the rage! get with it people. Why shouldn’t Octomom be in on the hip fitness fad sweeping LA and the nation? The responsibility of 14 kidlets isn’t easy, a momma’s got to find her exercise and inner peace somewhere. sheesh.
NY Daily News reports:
The ponytailed, leggings-clad mother of 14 has been spotted in the park near her home practicing yoga moves in front of the cameras, according to the London Daily Mail. Suleman reportedly lifted weights, did sit-ups, and worked on her lotus position.
Dunno what kind of yoga that represents exactly, but the Daily News was sure to call in all the experts on the subject to decipher this newfangled yoga thing, it’s amusing really. You know, all the top yoga scholars like Anne M. Fletcher, author of “Thin for Life” and “Weight Loss Confidential,” Christine Avanti, author of “Skinny Chicks Don’t Eat Salad” and Dr. Anne Kulze, author of “Dr. Ann’s 10-Step Diet.”
Seriously though, if she’s actually practicing yoga like the news suggests then the media hungry Octomom is perhaps on a more enlightened path…maybe? OK, well it surely couldn’t hurt (not any more than having 8 babies! crikey!)
*yes we do find it disturbing the tabloids are actually perpetuating the pseudo-celebritizing of a woman who got famous for having 8 babies and Angelina lips. le sigh.
um.. mary janes w/sorta half moon (1/4 moon perhaps)? haven’t seen that before.
Pretty soon we’re all going to have to take up something else because Yoga will have become just too mainstream and, shall we say, pedestrian.
How about secret Tibetan rites. You know the Five Tibetans is just the tip of the iceberg. We can all shift over to the yoga of Tibetan monks so we can feel special again.
I’m trying so hard to let go of the snark. I mean, really, I know SNARKASANA is not one of the 8 limbs of yoga. But jeepers creepers ….
Well, Sarah, you know of course, Patanjali says that once you reach a certain stage of enlightment you are beyond good and evil.
So maybe you’re already there and can snark with karmic impunity.
This is yoga? Why not just say that everyone who passed out after a huge night is doing yoga too? I mean, they’re in savasana, right?
maybe its yogalates. but, oh man, am i scarred by that belly photo. am trying… to practice.. non-judgement *shudder*
Hey, mebbe THIS is the *real yoga*? Or perhaps that’s just the other end of the extreme stick (pun intended)? (Courtesy of @yogiSTING)
And, you’re welcome!
Don’t miss the Svasti photos.
I’m always telling people that Yoga as physical spectacle and body abuse did not begin in the U.S. Here’s proof!
“Hey, mebbe THIS is the *real yoga*?”
or maybe that’s where stripper poles came from…..
heh – all the comments here – ftw!!
(oh, and octomom is just a hot mess who needs far more (psychological) help than she’s getting, imo.)
Poor Octomommy! If anyone could use yoga, it’s her. 14 kids, man oh man!!
