So, you might have caught wind of some kind of election thing going on tomorrow. If you’re a citizen of the United States of America we hope you will exercise your right to vote because it’s kind of a big deal. And pardon the phrase in light of recent events, but it’s probably going to be a real shitstorm, so get your little yogasana in there and let your voice and your choice be heard!

Some yoga writers would say that’s not good enough. A few have put out the call for yogis to “shelve both idealism and politeness” and “stand up and endorse Obama” to “weave our politics and practice into a bright braid of passion,” demanding proper progressiveness and tossing criticism at those remaining mum, as well as the most politically vocal yoga organization out there, Off the Mat, for their “political neutrality.” (See OTM at the DNC and RNC).

It’s Friday! That’s great! Or maybe just “Good”? get it? Whatever your plans for the weekend we hope you take the time to reflect on what’s most important, sunshine, savasana and treats! (kidding! sorta) Seriously though, if you want to dork out about the origin of “Easter”, or “Eastre” as the goddess was known in [...]

Oh, doncha know, it is on! –Alaskan Governer Sarah Palin Panders to America’s Yoga-bama Supporters– We never expected it, though we had hoped for it, and some had already pretty much decided to pretend anyway… but a presidential yogi? Ah, too good to be true! That’s why we have no doubt in our minds that [...]

As an update to our post “Is Lululemon Getting Too Political with Obama-Lovin, Racially Tinged Window Displays?” Turns out we’re not crazy for posing the question… Response from the blogosphere, hyper-ballad’s blog: I’ve been lululemon’s customer for the longest time, and this ad just pisses me off. It’s really disturbing. Who are those “our children” [...]
