Chip Wilson, Founder of Lululemon, has been through a lot lately, but we can't dance around the fact that he's caused most of it himself.

In “LGBTQ” I’ve heard the “Q” refers to “queer” or “questioning”. It keeps awareness open for discovery, and allows for a worldview that is defined by individuals instead of dogma, and doesn’t force folks into “M” or “F” categories.

Happy Election Day! While the futures of many politicians and their constituents will be decided today (and we hope you'll make the right choice for you) we'd wager that we have something much more entertaining and fun: The Annual Halloween YogaDork Vote! It was really tough to narrow it down, but we have our 11 [...]
By J. Brown Information technology is transforming the way human beings engage and interact with one another. Like most industries, the yoga world is keen to embrace and capitalize on the new media. But without a clear understanding of how these technologies are affecting us and a conscious relationship to their usage, we are easily [...]
The latest dispatch from Encinitas: While most of the yoga-in-school drama has died down after a judge ruled that yoga's not religious and therefore okay for students to practice it as part of the school district's curriculum, we've been biding our time waiting for the promised appeal from the opposing parents.

“It’s really cool to for an age group that is normally considered to be angsty, or [to] have a chip on their shoulder to want to spread serenity and show their practice,” Megan McCarter, teacher at Odyssey Community School in Asheville, NC. These yoga-practicing, meditating teenagers make us feel that much more confident in the future [...]
In the YD community, we know that malas are the official beads for the spiritual practice of many modern yogis. And like our choices in asanas, it's only natural that our mala beads be as personal and unique as our meditation practices.
