This Week in Yoga: Murder, Tantra, and Toddler Bikram

in This Week in Yoga, YD News

This week was one for the history books. If you’re a Northeastern American you know what we’re talking about! America’s birthday ushered us in from fireworks to a triple digit heat wave providing us all with free hot yoga classes right there on the pavement! Oy. Hope y’all are staying hydrated!

Here’s what happened this week on YD:

A Yoga Master was murdered by a delusional psychopath. (read more)

Mommies are bringing 4-year-olds to Bikram…is this a hot new trend? (read more)

A pilot successfully flew the first 24-hour flight in a solar powered plane and yoga saved his ass. (read more)

We tried to play name that guru and no one cared. (read more)

Tantra has us all hot and bothered, but it’s not all about sex you pervs. (read more)

ALSO!… Don’t forget we’re still taking questions for Stefanie Syman, author of The Subtle Body: The Story of Yoga in America. Send them in!

What our interns didn’t get to write about (just kidding! ha, interns):

HuffPo article on music in class. Rock music? Chanting? Instrumental? Or none at all? Basically, Dr. Ali Binazir gives all the reasons to support the latter: “I’m convinced that playing loud pop music during a yoga class is potentially harmful” [read more]

Some freedom-loving skin-barer suggested a topless beach in NJ’s Asbury Park, but sadly the plan was foiled. Who was the mastermind? A hippy yoga teacher, naturally. [read more]

Because it’s Friday! And because who doesn’t love pictures of animals doing yoga? elephant journal has your cat pose right here.
pssst. Some of you may remember our post, for Cat Yoga Day of course!

Have a wonderful weekend!
