When he’s not making silly videos about yoga, singer Jason Mraz tries to transcend…the snooze button. Did 2 hours of transcendent, restorative yin yoga this morning. Only bummer is my snooze alarm kept going off. — Jason Mraz (@jason_mraz) April 17, 2013 —— Earlier… Jason Mraz On Love and [...]
Public Display of Yoga
If you haven’t already acquired yourself a safe and buried it under your potato crops in your self-sufficient farmland community, you probably stash your cash in something called a bank. Heck, maybe you haven’t even physically seen cash in years because you just use a convenient little plastic thingy that, [...]
From the cute to the clever to the simply kookstown bizarre, here are a few ads from yoga studios trying to get people on the mat all around the world. Via Buzzfeed. Milano Ashtanga Yoga, Italy Rubber bandhas = Samadhi? Lotte Yoga School, The Netherlands Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad getting his [...]
A fashion show runway, not the first place that comes to mind when you think of yoga. Or even yoga fashion. But leave it to the creative and technicolored mind of veteran designer Betsey Johnson to bring a wild and wacky yoga spectacle to New York Fashion Week. Debuting her new [...]
image via gothamist.com We admit it, as much as we love New York, it is a crowded, stinky, mob scene of a city that can have even the chillest yogi steaming out the ears. Get out of the way people! (Yes, sprinting to yoga class, plowing through pedestrians and across [...]
These photos of humans body-painted and scrunched up to look like motorcycles had us amazed and curious. We knew a yogadork or two enjoyed some biker yoga, but Googling “motorcycle yoga” we had no idea we were uncovering a treasure trove of hogwild yogis! Exhibit A: Yogaraj C P of India [...]
What do you get when you cross yogis, professional body painters and the Progressive International Motorcycle Show? Human motorcycles!
In the name of art and spectacle, creative ad agency i.d.e.a. came up with the crazy idea to paint female yogis and bend them into yogi Lincoln logs for this Human Motorcycle series where professional bodypainter Trina Merry transformed them into a sport bike, dirt bike and cruiser.
Why yogis? Why because they’re bendy and strong and look more like dirt bikes than anyone else!
Ever wonder what it would be like to take a yoga class with the domestic force that is Martha “it’s a good thing” Stewart? We wouldn’t want to have our alignment critiqued by the grand dame of perfection. A brave soul, Katherine Rosman, donned her thickest annamaya kosha to satisfy her curiosity and report back from an early morning yoga sesh with M. Diddy herself.
“If the idea of witnessing the world’s most perfect perfectionist urging uncritical self-reflection upon the masses doesn’t command the attention of a yoga columnist, I’m not sure what does,” Rosman wrote in her Wall Street Journal report from the mat.
It’s like you can’t go a day without tripping over another Playboy playmate doing yoga in the park, especially with all that bulky camera equipment. Yes, it’s Holly Madison, former Playboy bunny, ex-girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, star of Vegas topless burlesque show “Peepshow” and she’s pregnant. In the park. Doing yoga. You know, like she does. And hey, we support prenatal yoga efforts.
Now, there is no logical reason to wish for more winter storms. Unless, of course, your name begins with Y and the usual amount of storms never reaches the end of the alphabet. Oh, wait. You didn’t know they’re naming winter storms now? It’s true! The Weather Channel has moved on from naming tropical storms and hurricanes and will start giving names to the cute little snowy storms born every winter from now on beginning with the 2012-2013 season. And the weather team seem to be having a bit of fun with it.
Pop diva Lady Gaga, recently criticized by the press for gaining an extra 25-30 pounds, responded by posting photos of her undressed figure in perhaps her boldest fashion statement to date: compassion and acceptance. Along with bra and panties, Gaga wears the burden of what many women of all ages face and boldly exposes it with the caption: “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15.”
Because what’s a week without Kardashian news! Kidding. While most of us may know her as Kim’s sister, while the rest of us don’t know her at all, Kourtney Kardashian is indeed a reality TV personality (Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Kim) and she is indeed pregnant. Also, she is a prenatal yoga momma! Or she was.
So here’s a photo of Prince Charles doing his best version of a trousered Tree pose with amputee Marine Chay Coulbert, injured in Afghanistan. The Prince of Wales made the trip to Headley Court in Surrey where he opened a £16.9 million (roughly $27.3 million) complex at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) for wounded service personnel, where apparently they do yoga for rehabilitation. Right on.
So. Hm. What we have here is what we assume are football fans (some out of shape dudes and a couple of ladies) gearing up for the season, more particularly ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown, doing oddly inspired poses (Tebow-asana?) led by well-known sportscasters (Mike Ditka, Chris Berman, Cris Carter, Tom Jackson) on their very own astroturf yoga mats on what appears to be a beach on a tropical paradise.
Yep. No idea, but somehow we dig. Eat your heart out, NBA.
Scott Wilson, who, coincidentally, plays the role of drunken farmer Hershel Greene on zombie show ”The Walking Dead” was pulled over for speeding and swerving on a Ga. highway in the early morning of August 18th. When the 70-year-old actor was asked the obligatory, “Sir, have you been drinking tonight?” he admitted [...]
