Have you been noticing how much yoga has infiltrated every part of our culture or have you just been desensitized to the saturation by now? (Rhetorical.) ABC is premiering a new comedy in the hopes that yoga's trendiness hasn't quite peaked just yet. On tonight, right after Modern Family's season finale (so you know they're [...]

white-woman-ghetto-yoga

This is...unfortunate. First, it's called "Ghetto." Second, it's a song about living in the ghetto written and sung by a white woman who moved to east Nashville and had to sing about her observations "of my neighborhood and the inequalities that exist between people in America and around the world. A daunting, horrible reality." Except [...]

Ronnie Arond, the Gracie Allen of Yoga | photo: Celeste Sloman for The New York Times

If you're having a bad day, read this. Or maybe you just need a good chuckle. Honestly, we don't know how anyone lives their days without humor, but we do know that not everyone inserts humor into their yoga classes. This is not Ronnie Arond. In fact, she insists on making you smile. “If I [...]

I have been teaching yoga for almost seven years now, and in that time, I’ve been lucky to be able to offer all of my public classes on a sliding scale.

Bey-asana Goddess Pose via Nosie Yoga

When getting in formation means getting into goddess pose. Er, surfbort? Eep. Are you keeping up with these yoga trends? Hip hop yoga keeps blowing up and now we're seeing specially themed (and semi-cleverly named) yoga classes appealing to an even wider range of yogsters. Enter...Bey-Asana. The brainchild of Houston-based couple Susie Edebor and her husband, Nosa (aka [...]

Maybe non-judgement is a tough one for her job, but she makes up for it on her mat. Every last Friday of the month, a Florida judge drops the robe and gavel to lead a free and public yoga class on the lawn right outside the courthouse. Duval County Court Judge Eleni Derke started yoga a few years [...]

Apparently, there is no room for yoga in Trump's America, or at least in his Easter Egg Roll. For the past eight years yoga in the Yoga Garden was an Easter tradition under the Obama administration. But that's all gone, now. This year's festivities were reportedly thrown together haphazardly and last minute, which sounds about [...]
