We love finding art that gives us all the warm and fuzzy feels. And every once in a while we come across an artist's work we love so much we have to share. Chicago artist Laura Berger illustrates beautiful and playful meditations on life's whimsical moments. We happened upon her work while putzing around on Etsy and fell [...]

Here's something you don't see every day. With $108 and a dream, this yoga studio could be yours! This isn't a joke.

"yoga and [...]

Some people hate yoga. Some people hate it so much they need to do it in the back of a bar against the soundtrack of death metal music and devil horns in order to enjoy it. For the author of this piece about Metal Yoga, that hatred ran deep, and the cure was just a [...]

I really want to practice yoga. God knows I do. I don’t want to practice to be super trendy, or the clothes provide a little slimming effect. I want to practice because yoga, for me, represents a connection between my mind and my body. Yoga represents peace, tranquility and concentration.

Janelle Monae performed her "Yoga" single live on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Monday night with the help of The Roots and some flexy backup dancers.

And just when the world seemed all too serious, a bit too heavy to handle, a little kooky comic relief from the good folks at McSweeney's came to lighten the mood. If you're an office warrior currently working at a standing desk, or have ever considered getting one - hey, they're supposed to be better [...]

Pets and yoga are two of our favorite things. Together, we can't resist their adorableness. Even when the pets do headstand better than we can! Ace and Holly are two border collies who apparently enjoy doing more than down dog when their hooman, Dai Aoki, practices yoga (with an exercise ball under his noggin, which [...]
