She's a beaut and I couldn't be prouder. As we've broached issues about body image and female empowerment [...]
It’s been a long-ass week here in Washington, DC.
And especially if you’re Dr. Debra Diamond, curator for the Smithsonian exhibit, 'Yoga: The Art of Transformation'—which nearly didn’t open on time, thanks to a bickering congress and government shutdown.

This past Tuesday, Oct. 8th, Grammy Award-winning musician Justin Vernon (best known for his multi-instrumental work as the frontman and face of indie rock outfit Bon Iver) used the interim period between Austin City Limit’s two festival weekends to play music for BFree Yoga’s “Power In The Park” at the Long Center in downtown Austin.
"Ever dream about taking a Yoga class at America’s Most Beloved ballpark?" the FenwaYoga website asks. Well, no, but now that you mention it, maybe?

CAPTION THIS. This has got to be one of our favorite photos from the Summer Solstice Yoga event in Times Square, which gathered over 15,000 yogis together in the tourist mecca of musicals, Bubba Gump and commercialism.

Ah, the marriage of classic progressive rock, psychedelic art and modern yoga. A match made in acid trip heaven! It's not necessarily stoner yoga, but you'll likely feel like you're high at Pink Floyd laser yoga class, a sensory stimulating experience dreamed up by Portland, Oregon-based Chris Calarco, who's also previously shared the transcendental gifts of Madonna, [...]
Easter eggs, bunnies and little yogsters took over the White House lawn yesterday for the 135th annual Easter Egg Roll. This year's theme “Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!” promoted healthy eating and physical activities like yoga, obstacle courses and team sports, echoing the First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign to reduce childhood obesity and [...]
In line with First Lady Michelle Obama's mission to reduce childhood obesity and, according to conspiracy theorists, the administration's mission to turn us all into pacified meditation loving hippie liberals, the traditional White House Easter Egg Roll shall once again include a "Yoga Garden." Go, go bunny pose. This year's theme is “Be Healthy, Be Active, [...]
