Is it hot in here? The first month of 2012 is barely over and we’ve already seen enough yoga contros and fiery debates to sweat old man Bikram. Still, we yoga on because that’s what we do, and we do it with Robert Downey Jr. Welll…ok not yet. But we’re pretty sure he needs to learn more about fascia and we should be the ones to teach it to him. You know, connective tissue and all that ‘organ of form’ stuff. ahem. Can somebody open a window? Time to chill out in snow-angel-asana.
Here’s What Happened This Week In Yoga:
