I will give Narendra Modi this much: Getting a day set aside for yoga has provided a lot of opportunities for media coverage and other focuses on yoga.
At least some of it is along the lines of this from the Wall St. Journal’s blog about India:
But as yoga’s popularity grows worldwide, its definition has been stretched.
The traditional variations of yoga–hatha, iyengar and ashtanga–have been joined by some more outlandish forms. Take a look at some of the wackiest.
Stretched. Get it?
Those forms include Doga, Paddleboard Yoga, Pro Wrestler Yoga, Wine and Yoga, Antigravity/Aerial Yoga (noted as not to be confused with AcroYoga) and Cold Yoga. I think we’ve made note of each of these at some point or another.
But what really caught my eye was this line: “Like most unconventional fitness trends, antigravity yoga was devised in New York.”
LA is off the hook for once.
