In this commercial yoga world, it’s really quite hard to catch it all. Thanks to Babarazzi commenter, Be Scofield, for bringing this to our attention. Lot’s to follow up on here.
Be Scofield’s comment:
[Y]our article doesn’t mention it but HuffPo paid Off the Mat $40,000 for this Oasis stunt! Wow! Yet, no one got paid who volunteered. Read the Salon.com article HERE
Quote from it:

Really. You can’t (and absolutely do not have to) make this shite up! Just copy and paste!
