Is it the full moon or what? All the kooky yoga videos are coming out of the woodwork! It’s not an oddball ad for Scrabble, but it certainly rates high on what- in-the-what scale. Meet The Yoganator! A high-prana’ed foul-mouthed yogi teacher with conviction, and satire. We’ve seen mocking tongue-in-cheek vids from the likes of aspiring yogi filmakers (Savasana: The Movie), Arj Barker (Sickest Buddhist) and even Jason Mraz (Yoga-to-Go), but are we ready for the yoga action film?
And then there’s Homeless Yoga, from the filmmaker and producer Linda Matarasso, with the tagline “What would yo do if you lost it all?”…of which the answer, of course, is Yoga. We have yet to come to a verdict on this one until we see the whole shebang, though it’s borderline obnoxious for sure (but so are we! we won’t judge. yet.)
Needless to say, Hindu scholar and part-time movie critic, Rajan Zed is not pleased (he hates Eat, Pray, Love). His previous thoughts on the topic directed at Yoga Journal, “When did lampooning become a medium to honor a 5,000-year-old tradition,” Rajan Zed asked.
In the spirit of Ogden, the ‘Inappropriate Yoga Guy, here’s another trip on the funny or offensive yoga express…what do you think?
Thanks to it’s all yoga baby for a great write up on the subject.
