UNRELEASED AGHORI/CHICKIE PODCAST!!! We came across this unfinished podcast Chickie and Aghori were working on late last year and thought it’d be cool to share it. In this would-be episode Aghori discusses an article he found in Yoga Journal that

Kelly Morris Adds to the Yoga Clothing Trash Heap With…Wait for It…MORE Yoga Clothing! /// PLUS: A Short Comic Strip

We had heard there was a new line of yoga clothing on the horizon, and obviously our nipples were the hardest they had ever been. Then we found out that none other than Kelly Morris was behind the scenes on

Good Lord, John Friend Needs a New Agent /// JF Teams Up With Mark Gafni

Let’s set aside all the “is it wrong to sleep with your teacher?” ho-hum, as well as all that “Boo hoo my business coach/yoga teacher Daddy-fill-in lied to me” crapola and talk about something that’s actually astounding. The other day

Yoga as “Self Expression” is About Getting You to Buy Stuff

It’s pretty hard to find moments when we aren’t expressing ourselves. For instance, when we help a homeless man covered in a million bags hop a turnstile, we’re expressing our love of a thrifty deal. When we pass out drunk

CHECK THIS: This is Probably What a Lot of Yoga Practitioners are Looking For

First, watch this: The history of yoga doesn’t really have a lot of self-expression attached to it. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras aren’t very pro-“the world.” Certainly not as much as starry-eyed yoganistas would like us to believe. For the most part,

Sadie’s New Look /// Cyberpunk or Steampunk /// It’s Neither

I have to admit, when I first heard about Sadie’s new side-shave, I was skeptical. Even though I was down with Rockabilly-Sadie, which is a throw-back look, I was feelin’ like “side-shave Sadie” was a bit “too-soon-too-little-too-late Sadie,” a little too

Colleen Saidman is the “First Lady” of Yoga? /// Also, What’s Been Up With Us

Hope you all had a nice  time while we were away not caring about commercial yoga culture for a couple of weeks. We just loved the mental space it created. Fan-f’ing-tastic! Of course, during that time Aghori ended up writing
