If we didn’t laugh we’d cry. At least they still have their sense of humor. And they would very much like to remind us of that. Seriously, please, can’t everyone just focus on how fun they are? Either way, the fake job posting for a new CEO is both pretty [...] The post Lululemon Posts Fake CEO Job Wanted Ad to Laughter, Maybe Tears appeared first on YogaDork.
When we’re not writing about wacky yoga style mashups or the yoga pants biz, we tend to post a lot about yoga-related scientific studies. And there seems to be a lot more to write about lately, which is a good thing.

By Neal Pollack For years, the only time my son showed any interest in yoga was when he wanted something from me. Then he’d say, “dad, teach me yoga.” So we’d run through a sun salutation or two and then do about 30 seconds of quiet meditation, at which point [...] The post Nidra Dad appeared first on YogaDork.
Dads, this is your day. Allow us to acknowledge all your awesomeness, your encouragement, your courage and support. We’re celebrating ALL the dads out there today and sending a very special yogi fist bump to the pops practicing their yoga on and off the mat. Aw man, forget that, bring [...]Show More Summary
It’s already been quite the year for the old lemon lulus. The see-through pantscapade really threw them for a loop. We hear the affected styles are making it back to shelves, and the lulus will survive, and still make a bazillion dollars, yadda yadda, but it appears Lululemon has taken [...]Show More Summary
When it comes to the wild world of public relations for political candidates these days, saying yoga will lead to Satan might be good for a laugh, but it’s sure as hell not going to help get you elected. Perhaps this is what Virginia’s Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, E.W. Jackson, considered [...]Show More Summary
There are truly some fascinating and crazy fitness mashups out there. For instance, this Vanity Fair headline caught our eye about a new spinning facility that will feature under water cycling: ‘Think Yoga but Spinning: Think Aqua Studio.’ Think yoga but spinning? What does that even mean? We already have [...] The post 8 Crazy Yoga Style Mashups appeared first on YogaDork.
A little while back we posted about the super awesome ”Yoga: The Art of Transformation” opening this fall at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC.

We know, we know, it’s well past winter as we enter mid-June and sweet summertime (oh yeah). But, we somehow missed something frostorical! That’s frosty and historical. Remember when we posted about Winter Storm names and how “Yogi” was so interestingly chosen as the ‘Y’ and how cool it would [...] The post We Missed Winter Storm Yogi! Or, Did We? appeared first on YogaDork.
A little bone for the yogis in the age old yoga versus exercise debate? A small new study shows 20 minutes of yoga beats out 20 minutes of aerobic exercise for the old thinking noodle. (That’s your brain!) Researchers at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign studied “The Acute Effects of Yoga [...]Show More Summary
Protestors in Istanbul, Turkey have been occupying Gezi Park for six days now. To continue the peaceful demonstrations, yogis have joined the cause holding classes in the park.

It’s national doughnut day AND there’s a new moon tomorrow? Do we need another excuse to be lunar-loving, fried pastry-munching heathens? Oh that’s right, yoga! But if practicing yoga is so devilishly wrong, we don’t want to be right. Pass the twisted cruller. Here’s What Happened This Week In Yoga: [...]Show More Summary
Oh yes, yoga is popular. So are yoga injuries and egos and teachers giving wonky adjustments. Oh my. In response, the trend of voicing consent is also growing in popularity. Prefer not to be touched? Just say it and namaste it. And then trademark that bitchin’ slogan! (Kidding.) Some yoga [...] The post Yoga and the Dawn of Touch ‘Consent’ Cards appeared first on YogaDork.
The devil inside, the devil inside, every single one of us, the devil inside. – INXS Newsflash: yoga is satanic and you’re all evil. Also, you’re dead spirits. Virginia’s GOP candidate for lieutenant governor and conservative pastor E.W. Jackson has just taken over as head conductor of the “yoga is [...]Show More Summary
We already know yoga is a major perk at awesome companies, but it very well ought to be the cornerstone of office culture at a company called Asana. Need a coffee break? How about a few backbends to energize, instead. Chatting at the water cooler? Better be standing in the [...] The post Inside the Asana Office, Yoga and Work Flow Paradise appeared first on YogaDork.
An incredible thing is happening in Turkey right now. A peaceful protest to protect a park from being demolished and rebuilt into a shopping mall in the center of Istanbul has devolved into a clash of citizens and government that has seen thousands of people come to join the occupation [...]
Another one bites the dust. UPDATE below. (And, no, it seems Bikram can not avoid being attached to scandal, in case you were wondering.) It may have come as a shock to hardcore hot benders when they heard Bikram Yoga Union Square would be shutting its doors May 29 without [...]Show More Summary
Heavens to Betsy. So here’s a non-shocker, the “so esoteric it’s almost meaningless” yoga trial in Encinitas is set to go on longer than expected. If you’ve been avoiding keeping up with the Sedlock v. Baird case til now, we don’t blame you, it’s a doosie. But if you wanted to [...]Show More Summary
by J. Brown There are three general sensibilities that shape the process by which someone comes to an understanding of yoga, and its capacity to empower. Each approach offers benefits but, contrary to common assumptions, they do not all lead to the same conclusions or results. For purposes here, these [...]Show More Summary
