From the celebriyogi rumor mill: Jessica Biel kicked out of yoga class for etiquette taboo #9,0210 – verboten blackberry offense!
Drat! And we just got done talking up her yogadorkiness and JB goes and pulls the contraband smuggler maneuver. Everyone knows cell phone use in class makes for frowny yogis, even in Hollywood, where smiles are mostly plastic! The gossipmonger source says Lady Biel was caught fiddling with her phone and was asked by the instructor to take it outside, which she did, and then promptly returned once she was done. Nice, so she interrupted the class twice! Lots of studios have started banning phones from the classroom altogether. Do they make special exceptions for sexy texts from ex-Backstreet Boys? (purely speculation)
In this age where technology facilitates constant communication wherever you are, should yoga studios be any different? Or should they be devoid of any contact other than with your mat and your inner Self?
Maybe they should start making announcements at the beginning of class like they do at movie theaters…”If you hear ringing, it should be from the divine, not your phone! Thank you, management of greater sanity.”
