Here's a bit of gossip we were all not so anxiously waiting for, partly because we're naturally calm yogis who have techniques to quell that sort of excitement and partly because this bloke is totally mad.

More and more people are joining #OccupyWallSt now at Day 12, including yogis, and a celebriyogi leader, Russell Simmons.

Though, as we said in a previous statement, we view yoga in these cases as acts of community, not the yoga world uniting [...]

Breaking! Celebrities are keeping fit! "I learned that even though you aren't always as good as the other people at the poses or you don't look as elegant or can't stretch as far, you just do what you can! It's all about where YOU are in the moment. You don't do this for others or [...]

OR a modern example of how yoga and [...]
