In the pursuit of health through yoga, the challenge is often more about shifting ingrained sensibilities than addressing physical limitations. Attempting to tune, fix, quantify, purify or explain a human body, as though it were more a piece of equipment in need of optimization or repairs than a highly temperamental organism, is not likely to heal the wounds or set a necessary course for well being.

Fred was hands down the least flexible person I’ve ever encountered. In 28 years of teaching asana, I’ve never seen anyone who came close to his lack of mobility. His Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend) was little more than a forward nod.

We've said it before and we'll say it again, they're going to have to add a special "Yoga Parody" category to the Webby Awards pretty soon, due to their sheer ubiquity on the internets.

This morning I woke up and saw a crescent shaped prism right before my eyes. When I closed them, it was still there. This has happened to me only once before - the prism grew until I couldn't see, setting up a massive panic attack and a trip to the ER. All I could imagine was “brain tumor.”

It's summer, it's hot out and you're craving a cold one. But FIRST, yoga. THEN beer. There's a class for that™ - our new catchphrase for all the crazy yoga+ everything-you-could-ever-think-of combos springing up all over the place. For instance, when you want beer AND yoga, just go to a brewery! Yoga, it's not just [...]

This is what happens when Fox News attempts to do yoga in Times Square: a staged stunt, half-assed effort, blatant sexism and still enough time to slip in a homophobic wisecrack. OK, this video of Fox commentator Bob Beckel starts out entertaining enough -  super non-yoga dude in white suspenders and a sweatband has his second [...]

Mermaid Yoga. Folks, DO NOT try this at home. UNLESS you have a partner with an oxygen tank and a life preserver nearby. Note: If you'd just like to see the pretty pictures cause you're tired of words, simply scroll past our two cents of social commentary. These eerily enchanting photos of underwater yoga come [...]

Gambling and yoga, go together just like piña and colada, no? While a casino may be one of the last places you'd think to find the mind-body practice, it's becoming more and more popular for these gambling meccas to offer yoga to their patrons and the public. The Golden Nugget in Atlantic City, for example, [...]
