Look out world, here comes Bikram the Yoga King! With megaton balls, and a massive hot yoga empire getting ready to capitalize the pants off you. And we thought Lady Gaga yoga was bigger than Elvis… Bikram is going to BE Elvis!  Or so we gather from the latest story about Mr. hot pants Choudhury [...]


If the NYTimes wanted to paint the picture of a joyfully Self-absorbed yogi overlord reclined in his cushy chair, tended to by doting assistants while amusing himself  with his own sound bites of wisdom, well they sure did a good job of it, down to the photo caption “Boss pose”.  Not to say this gargantuan [...]

Sure it’s only been a few weeks since giving birth, but judging by the before and after photos above (thx foxnews!), did she really gain any weight besides the actual babushka to begin with?

Who’s got talent? This little notice was forwarded to our inbox. Well, we’ve been here before, with the craigslist casting call last year for Eat, Pray Love extras. pfft, extras? Here’s your chance to be the star! Celebriyogidom! We really don’t know any more details than the flyer lets on. If you’re interested, and have [...]


Gah! Did we really leave Martha Stewart off The List? For shame. How were we to know the magnate of better living would be yoga-ing it up with Sting‘s yoga-partner-in-life Trudie Styler? We weren’t invited! Last time we saw Madame Martha in her stretchy pants she was demonstrating some awkward maneuvers with a dog. Doga [...]
