Advertising for yoga classes: you’re doing it wrong. Unfortunately, the yearly 9/11 anniversary inevitably gets exploited in some distasteful way, but we somehow least expected it (or would like to least expect it) from a yoga studio.

We’ve been silently, and not so silently, delighting in glee over our new twitter follower, Ashley Judd(!). Sure, she’s a beautiful and successful movie star, which is cool, but she’s also an inspiring activist and humanitarian who’s done great work all over the world to prevent AIDS, promote the end of genocide and crimes against [...]

It was big news yesterday that meditator Alec Baldwin (or at least he plays one on TV) and his special lady, yoga teacher Hilaria Thomas are engaged. Our warmest congrats to the couple! We’re fans.
