Yoga and pets! We've seen some pretty special pet-enhanced yoga sessions, and by special we mean hilarious, adorable, mischievous and ouch! worthy. (see: classic cat yoga fail). Now we've got a collection of funny pet-terrupting yoga videos in one happy compilation, thanks to the Huffington Post. Prepare to laugh your tails off. ------ Earlier... Yoga [...]

But is it racist? “Racism is so implicit that you never even notice that it’s a white girl on the cover every single time,” added Amy Champ, a PhD [...]

Taking yoga off the mat doesn't necessarily mean doing it in public in your underwear (unless you're Lady Gaga). Unfortunately, for one Ocala, Florida resident her demons took her too far past her edge and into the danger zone. Michele Cernak, 51, was high on drugs when cops responded to calls about a woman in her panties [...]


Meet the Yoga and Body Coalition, an alliance created to unite individual efforts in promoting inclusivity, active transformation, and physical, spiritual and mental empowerment in the yoga community.

In the pursuit of health through yoga, the challenge is often more about shifting ingrained sensibilities than addressing physical limitations.
