There’s a Congressional Yogi Association? Apparently yes

We’ve highlighted the exploits of Rep. Tim Ryan before.

The latest from him? A bit of yoga not just in America’s capitol — but on Capitol Hill itself. From one of the papers that cover that august body:

The inaugural “Yoga on the Hill” session, originally envisioned as an outdoor spectacle, wound up taking place in the Cannon Caucus Room due to the uncooperative weather.

House Democratic aide and event organizer Hannah Kim told HOH Reps. Charles B. Rangel, D-N.Y., and Barbara Lee, D-Calif., addressed the assembled health enthusiasts, while mindfulness advocate Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, threw himself into the group workout.

The Congressional Yogi Association is being called “fledgling.” We’ll see where that goes. Not that I’ve got lots of hope for a major Aum to resonate down Pennsylvania Avenue.
