Meditations on Mutations

The zen-est thing to happen to fast food since Subway’s yoga mat bread. It’s so ridiculous it could be true. Chicken Nugget Yoga has taken wing! That’s a terrible pun. We’re very sorry. But not as sorry as we are about this new yoga blend. Chicken Nugget Yoga* is, of course, a joke (we think!) created [...]

When many new health trends help you detox this one encourages the opposite. We can’t even blame America for this. Well, not entirely. More on that in a minute.

It looks like silent yoga. It sounds like silent yoga. But it’s really all in your head. Sound Off Yoga, the latest attraction in the ever-growing landscape of frankenyoga, is actually an event involving music played by live DJs just like your average yoga party the kids have these days, but the tunes aren’t pumped through [...]
