New Yorker Lampoon: Yoga Teacher Bios

Hat tip on this one to Eddie Stern, who posted it to Facebook. We’ve started getting the New Yorker, again, at home — although it always feels wrong given we’re in Los Angeles, but there’s nothing similar out here, or anywhere, really. I’m still not in the habit of checking it online regularly.

It’s lampooned yoga teacher bios. (Right now it appears to be the most popular piece, so watch out for it to trend.) Here’s just one of a handful:

Mary-Sage Porter

Mary-Sage began her yoga journey at sixteen, while recovering from a groin injury sustained at an Up With People concert. Her SpiritTone™ system, a movement technology that polishes the aura while simultaneously increasing the thigh gap, came to her in a vision after she made the painful personal decision to sneak into the employee bathroom at Bali’s famed Ubud Monkey Forest. Mary-Sage recently got her real-estate license and was called to combine sacred movement and property sales for her popular Yoga for Real Estate class.

Enjoy. I don’t think any of them are based on people we know (although Tulum gets a mentioned) but the composites are familiar.
