We sometimes believe presenting without comment is a bit irresponsible since there’s so much fabricated bs out there (“fake news!”…ugh) and it’s hard to know if anyone knows their asana from their elbow.

A DJ, a hip-hop star and a yogi walk into a nightclub. Welcome to the era of Namasdrake a yoga Drake-themed yoga class where “Hotline Bling” is just another name for the dopest new yoga pose on instagram. We have to say, these themed yoga classes always crack us up. From raging to emojis to [...]

As oxymoronic as it sounds, we keep hearing more about rage yoga, and every time we do, this is what we picture: The Power Of The Mind! So. OK. We’ll bite. A very rage-less bite. Tell us, what is Rage Yoga? [reyj yoh-guh] noun: a practice involving stretching, positional exercises and bad humor, with the [...]
