Hey-o! Who brought all the dudes to the party? Yes, we have dubbed this as Impromptu Dude Yoga Week, let’s hear it for the boys! And what’s balance in yoga, and/or life, without a little sun and moon, a little yang to the yin, anima, animus rajas-tamas-sattvic-alidocious. Perhaps that commenter was right, the times they are a changin’. But it’s not going to start with the same old rigmarole, while we sit around waiting for someone else to make the change. No, it’s got to start with us, all of us, to BE the change we wish to see. Yep, nobody said it was easy, but this revolution has just begun. *fist bump* Egypt.
