Karma yoga? According to today’s news more yoga studios are offering free classes to America’s jobless. To the approximately 10% of Americans out of work, most of whom we assume can not afford $10-20 classes every week, this is surely a blessing.
Here’s hoping yoga can, at the very least, provide people with the centering and peace of mind needed to continue forging ahead on the job search. Sure, just about 85% of employees hate their jobs, but “ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.” In other words, it pretty much sucks to be out of work. That’s Kahlil Gabrin y’all.
So will yoga help get them jobs? Is it their “bailout“? ahem. Those stats aren’t in yet. Other stats to be seen, how many of those free class takers end up becoming yoga teachers themselves.
