It’s dog-eat-dog out there on the streets. And, if you’re into the yoga, it’s even more brutal. Fear not. We can help. YAMA (DON’T) Yoga mats are heavy, clunky, and, when carried about the city, are always in danger of

Our illustrious reader, Dyspeptic Skeptic, posted this video in the comments of yesterday’s post, and we just had to bring it to the front lines. Check it: Hmm…. Where to begin with this one? Why not the beginning? First we

prAna “Festival Collection” May Also Be a “Wanderlust Collection?” /// Commercial Yoga Culture Welcomes in the Summer Season With More Crapola

Summer is here, sucka MCs. And, you know what that means. No, it doesn’t mean it’s time to guess how often disgraced celebrity butter chef, Paula Deen, has used the word n***er in her life. It means festivals! Yoga festivals

NIYAMA YAMA #5: Wherever You Go, There You Are (Doing Yoga)

It’s obvious we can’t stop you from doing yoga in public spaces. And, clearly we can’t stop you from taking pictures of yourself doing said acts. Truth be told, we almost kinda like it! That said, you should know that

This Guy Has Got to Fuck the Universe on the Daily

You know the deal. Watch this first: First, let’s just ignore the fact that this is called “Outlaw Yoga.” People make mistakes, and that’s OK. But, damn, right?! Like, did I just get third eye fucked by the most ultimate

Rodney Yee Can Speak About Diversity /// Colleen Saidman-Yee Just Wants to Know What Diversity Is

I think you should simply watch this first: Now, the first thing that jumps out at me is how straight forward Rodney is when answering the question “Is there enough diversity in yoga.” He doesn’t dawdle. He doesn’t stammer. He

Wanderlust NYC /// And “Stink to Pink” Gets a Mention

This past weekend was Wanderlust‘s “Yoga in the City” extravaganza, and can you believe it, we missed it! Not that I didn’t want to go. Hell, if I didn’t have to shill for “the Man” that day, I’d been the

NIYAMA YAMA #4: Butt Talkin’

This is pretty straight forward. It’s a Yoga Culture DOs & DON’Ts about butts. YAMA (DON’T) When a female baboon wishes to court a male, she will “present” the male with a juicy pair of swollen buttocks. What female baboons
