Man, it’s like these days are just getting shorter and shorter. Daylight must be saved! Yes it’s dark at 5pm, but we won’t let that keep us from eating all our halloween candy for dinner shining the light of our pre-holiday spiritude. This week was full of surprise resignations, scenes from a horrific lulu murder and fake-ish meatlike substances concocted from yoga mat materials. Are we approaching yogapocalypse or will the dawn of darker days lead us to toward freewheeling transformation and enlightenment? You’re asking us? That’s one for Deepak’s video game Oracle!
Here’s What Happened This Week In Yoga:
Firstly, a PSA: Would you rather eat a McRib or your Manduka? How about both! McDonald’s McRib Shares Same Ingredients As Your Yoga Mat
Also tough to swallow: Lululemon Co-Worker Guilty of First-Degree Murder, Faces Life in Prison
Now you too can know what it’s like to take shrooms and meditate with the awesome power of technology. Sneak Peek: Deepak Chopra’s LeelaVideo Game, Meditative Simulation, Virtual Serenity
