How do you like your yoga?

January 26, 2011 § Leave a comment

My wrist hurts today. I don’t know if it has to do with the weather, but I do know it has to do with being on computers a lot. I was planning on going to a vinyasa yoga class tonight, but I just tried to do a downward dog and move into a plow pose in the storage room to test my wrist for strength and it failed. It looks like it’ll be the gym for me tonight instead.

In the spirit of yoga, here are a couple interesting articles I’ve come across lately. I personally find myself somewhere between the spiritual, Eastern hippie-ness of yoga and the casual, Western version of it. I do appreciate the history, but most of the time I just want a work out, not to learn how to move my organs around and flatten my bellybutton to my spine.

The New York Times is calling Tara Stiles a “yoga rebel” because she calls yoga as she sees it – she doesn’t use the lingo and believes it should be for everybody, while Irin Carmon contemplates what’s wrong with how we talk about yoga.
