This Week in Yoga: Opera, Prison, Kitty Cats and Drunken Yogi Vandalism

in This Week in Yoga, YD News

When you have a yoga news week with headlines trumpeting opera, prison, kitty cats, and drunken yogi vengeance, you have to wonder, how close are we to the yogapocalypse?? be like the buddha cat

Here’s what happened this week on YD – ‘Lessons Learned’ edition:

Lesson #1: Upon tossing back a few adult beverages, do not attempt to go to yoga class.

DO NOT return to the studio with armfuls of toilet paper, spray paint and your kitchen garbage. [read more]

Lesson #2: Cats are relaxation experts…now with yoga meditation music, study shows! [read more]

Lesson #3: Ode to joy! Yoga is _____:

a)   great for opera singers! [read more]
b)   also great for prisoners in jail, though try explaining that to curmudgeon taxpayers in the UK. [read more]
c)   ageless, ask 91-year-old Tao Prochon-Lynch tomorrow. [read more]
d)  a tad more than “stretching and breathing” [read more]

Lesson #4: Clearly Lady Gaga has a first class ticket on the rock n roll yoga train [read more]

And finally, Lesson #5: Author Stefanie Syman is a nice person for answering our questions! Oh and for writing a cohesive and thorough book about ‘Yoga in America’… which some lucky YD readers may have the chance to dig into themselves pretty soon (*hint*wink*giveaway*) [read more]
