Sloth Yoga...now THAT sounds like a hot new style. While becoming increasingly stiff competition for the current reigning champs of the internet (that'd be cats, of course) sloths still lag far behind when it comes to anything related to physical activity. And yet, here we have a sloth, finding time between his two favorite things, napping [...]
From the mouth of America's sweetheart, Tom Hanks, a declaration of love for his yoga practice! In fact, the peas to our carrots says since he started doing yoga he has no aches and pains to complain about. "I don't even have aches and pains, because I started stretching," Hanks told the host of British [...]
Yogis may love their yoga pants, but we're starting to think moms might love them even more, if this mom's yoga pants rap is any indication. Sure, we need another yoga rap like we need, well, another yoga rapper, but as far as yoga raps go, it's pretty snappy. Yes, of course it's still super [...]

A recent study found that yoga, yes yoga, is better at keeping your memory sharp than all those puzzles and brain training apps you download [...]

The old model of packaging and selling a style of practice has largely been retired. Now, everyone agrees, the teacher is the brand. With this comes a string of inevitabilities that are at the heart of what plagues most professional yoga teachers today.
I’m going to write about sex. Heaven help us. And about Jivamukti, Holly Faurot, and Ruth Lauer-Manenti. I’m going to suggest that hips are soulful, complicated things.
The recent Jivamukti sexual abuse allegations have reignited a long-running conversation on power dynamics, teacher-student relationships, and cult-like status within the yoga community.
