Because if there’s ONE thing yoga needs more of it’s reality television. Random awkward yoga on MTV’s Dating Naked and with the Kardashians just doesn’t count. We need a whole reality TV show revolving around yoga because, we don’t know, it just doesn’t feel REAL enough until it’s on TV.
Snarkypants aside, we’re not joking. This may actually end up being a very real thing. According to YAMA Talent’s facebook page, they’re currently shopping around the idea to networks.
YAMA is like a talent agency, booking agency and
reaper of your innocent soul marketing/PR agency all rolled into one, focusing on building your brand and helping you make a name for yourself in the yoga world, ie. selling DVDs, headlining Wanderlust, getting a product sponsorship, starring in a reality TV show (apparently), or anything else that speaks success to you as a yoga personality.
This was the official posting shared via “yoga star” Sadie Nardini’s (who we presume would star in said show) and YAMA’s facebook pages:
WOULD YOU WATCH A YOGA REALITY SHOW? PLEASE Like this post if so…we’re showing TV networks that you’ll watch something besides housewives fighting on TV! They’re not sure if you will. THE NUMBER OF LIKES HERE will help us make a difference and create an entertaining show with a fierce, empowering message!!
So there you have it. Your dreams and/or worst nightmare may soon come true! YAMA and Sadie Nardini doing a yoga reality show. This sounds familiar.
We have to wonder, though, what type of reality show would it be this time. Would it be all insidery and uncomfortable like Dance Moms or Duck Dynasty? Or a competition show like American Ninja Warrior or The Amazing Race, or better yet, America’s Got Talent? Or maybe it’s a new makeover show – let’s call it Blissformations - where regular old, unhealthy eating, ungrateful non-yogis get their lives back in order with all the yoga quick fixes the gurus can muster in 30 minutes! Coming to Lifetime this Spring.
Hey, who knows. Maybe it’s the one thing that will bring us all together as a yoga nation, united under strong cores and the perpetual state of self-transcendent bliss. We’ll leave enough space to be surprised.
Are we ready for a yoga reality show? Did we ever really ask for one? Let’s help them out. Take our poll below.
