Heyyy! While we at YD feel it was accurate, let's hang on 5 breaths, before we get our [...]

Whoa! We're thinking this week should be brought to you by an after school special and a bar of soap. Sudsy amuse bouche, anyone? Good grief!

Oh you are going to love this one. The February issue of DETAILS mag has an enlightening article entitled "The Overheated, Oversexed Cult of Bikram Choudhury". Immediate reaction: Uh ohh!

We know it. Yoga is for everybody, right? Every Body. But, wait! Quick, just imagine for a second the picture of the "perfect" yogi? Who do you see? Is he/she fit, slender and pretty?

Yogi, wha? Hey ladies! Meet Nikki "2K" Muller and her yogi homey DJ Tanner. If you're into spreading consciousness in the belly laughasana region, and don't mind a little "perv"ottansana, we recommend you do NOT miss this hot video.
