TGIF Happy Halloween Yoga!

in Events, YD News

What a freaky week! We’ve been attacked on all sides! Vicious competitive yoga, Playboy yoga bunnies, we can’t even eat granola anymore – our world has turned upside down! If you clicked on that Playboy Naked Yoga link by the way, judge yourself harshly. just kidding!  Well it’s Halloween weekend, the final days of October (and holiday-free sanity). *shiver* There are a few fun events happening in the NYC area so scroll down for more.

First, a Halloween Riddle: What’s scarier than running the NYC Marathon and attending a chaturanga workshop? Answer: Bikram Choudhury posing his asana for Playgirl! Don’t worry, it’s not for real (yet) but it did just totally save us trying to come up with a Halloween costume!

  • Yes, it has been a wild week. Looks like we might have another great debate brewing on Linda’s blog again:

    “This truly IS the Kali Yuga”
    http://lindasyoga.blogspot.com/2009/10/it-truly-is-kali-yuga.html

    Linda thinks Playboy Yoga represents the Kali Yuga dark age (if she’s not putting us on), and I think “So what, really?” Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s thoughts.
