Holy cowboy! It’s dueling funny yoga videos! First Star Wars Yoga, and now these buckaroos have come to rule the roost. It’s Cowboy Yoga! Let Connie and his pardner teach you how to get your ass-in-a correct position. It’s a little slow going, but these western yoga wranglers know to take their time to git-er-done. (sorry)
We reckon this could start a craze. Next thing you know we’ll be seeing yoga lasso and spurs™ on sale wherever you buy props! Eh, or not.
Fun fact: This is a short film by Hal Clifford and Lou Bendrick that premiered at the Berkshire International Film Festival in 2009.
Thanks to YogaDawg for the howl.
rofl – absolutely love the disclaimers at the end
Yay, a cowboy Buddha, that rocks! Love the whole thing, it’s brilliant! 😀
… and I hear the strains of Paula Cole in the background singing, “Where is my John Wayne, where is my prairie sun, where is my happy ending … where have all the cowboys gone … ?” … “… where is my Marlboro Man, where is his shiny gun, where is my Lone Ranger …?”
… miss the West …
I once took a workshop in therapeutic yoga from a yoga teacher/physical therapist who lived in Arizona. She taught yoga classes for her physical therapy patients. She had many cowboys as patients. She said that cowboys have a lot of back problems because they have to lift heavy things like hay bales and calves. She actually did have men insist on wearing cowboy boots and tight jeans and heavy belt buckles during yoga class. She said that real cowboys are surprisingly prudish and are shocked at the idea of taking their shoes and socks off to expose bare feet. After lots of persuasion she finally convinced some of them to do yoga in socks and sweatpants, but not a single one would wear shorts or take socks off. But she said they loved the yoga because it worked and helped their back pain. And they would talk about yoga down at the local cafe–even about mulabandha!
We had a running joke all that week that we would produce a video on cowboy yoga. That joke made this video doubly funny to me.
Getting my boots on!!
