So, I don't know about y'all, but I am LOVING the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix. Beyond being a brilliantly funny show by co-collaborators of 30 Rock, Tina Fey, and Robert Carlock, it's a groundbreaking comedy based on trauma, rape, and kidnapping. Recently, Emily Nussbaum of the New Yorker did a great job capturing the show's best and worst points, but as a Yogi, one episode stood out to me, in particular.

In San Francisco, where else? If our yogdar reading is correct, San Francisco is THE place to be for tech folks who love yoga and yoga folks who love tech. And if this Craigslist ad is any indication, tech nerds and yogadorks are looking to shack up together exclusively in one om-possibly awesome 'Yoga & Tech' [...]

Because the Incredible (man) Hulk shouldn't be the one having all the green yoga fun. There are definitely some days when we're feeling She-Hulk-ish on the mat.

An update to the yoga studio set on fire story. And the plot thickens. Last Saturday night a woman broke into a yoga studio and set it on fire which left us all with so many questions. First and foremost, why would someone break into a yoga studio and try to set it on fire? The [...]

In case there was any confusion, men practice yoga, too. And we'd be willing to bet there's a bunch of skeptical guys out there who have tried yoga simply because they'd heard some of their favorite professional athletes have taken to the practice to better their game, as well as their bodies, their minds and [...]
