Move over plain old boring websites, there’s a new guru in Internet town. A dotguru. If you haven’t been scoping out the usual places to see if your amazing new idea for a website has an available domain name (sorry, getpoopchakra.com has been taken) then you probably wouldn’t know that .guru is now a very viable [...]
Ah, dogs, the REAL yoga masters. It would only be their wise and woofy ways to make us humans think we’re actually teaching them yoga, then when it’s the perfect timing, pow! they expose us as fools and hump each other live on TV. Woofsy daisy! Let’s suspend rational thinking for a moment and let [...]
Pets, they’re just like us! They like to practice yoga, too. Er…or maybe just snuggle and nuzzle and adorably interrupt us while we’re trying to practice.

However, a Bikram studio in Arlington, Virginia did not get the memo, and went ahead with promoting their “9+11=20% [...]
Tuesday, July 22, 2014 was a momentous day for the modern yoga lexicon – “iPhone Yoga” was officially added to the Urban Dictionary! What is iPhone Yoga, you ask? Currently there is only one definition and it sounds like it fits. No, it’s not about selfies, surprisingly. Upon further research we found there are a [...]
Because some things (all things?) in life are better on Instagram, areweright? Yoga, for example, it’s always more glamorous! And bare-skinned!
