Have no fear! Were you worried the Recession would never bounce back like your footprints on an extra squooshy yoga mat? Yoga (the practice and the business) has held strong through this saggy economy, which took a face plant over a year ago.

(yep, Gawker again. twice in on week. this yoga thing must be huge). The New York Times published an article today about how [...]

7online‘s a little late to the Yoga boom in Recession party, but we’ll forgive them, if only because they dug deep and did the hard reporting. What’s the news? Employment down, yoga UP! (remember, though kiddles, this is NYC). (video) Elena Brower of Virayoga (in Soho) says classes are brimming upwards of 70 students in [...]

Here we go again. TIME mag inducing the “Ugh” factor. oh man we have so much to say about this…our sharp tongues are piqued. Sadly we just can’t expect TIME to bring us any relevant yoga news anymore. We mean no malice, but they already muddled the little part about YogaWorks opening up a NYC [...]
