In the new connection economy, community is an invaluable asset. When people identify with a particular set of motivating ideas, those inclinations can easily be targeted to encourage behavior with either honest or nefarious intent. Too often, calls to rally the “yoga community” fail because they inadvertently become veiled attempts to follow a model of coercion rather than camaraderie.
What do you say, new addition to your fall fashion wardrobe? WANT! We found these down dogging kitty cat heels the only way one discovers hidden gems of interest and bizarrity, by randomly surfing the interwebs.

We have to say there isn’t too much visible difference in his practice between then and now, but we yogis know that change isn’t always what happens on [...]
Milo the yoga video kiboshing cat! All we can say is this little furry pal was not into his human companion’s selfie yoga practice video, and it’s really funny and cute. At least it was the camera and not her crotch. Hey-O. —— Earlier… Adorable Namaste Cat Does Morning Namaste Practice (VIDEO) How-to: Partner Yoga [...]
This daredevil decided it would be fun to strap a GoPro camera to his shoe and handstand on the edge of a 40-story building. You know, like it’s no big thing.
