Yoga Explosion

I will admit I am an NPR junkie. Lately I haven't been able to get my fix since it's hard to explain to my 3 1/2 year old that there is a war going on, on the other side of the world. Today though while driving around running errands, we listened to an uncontroversial piece about yoga. While I had to field questions from the back seat, I still found the piece quite entertaining.

Up for discussion was the irony of a spiritual practice becoming a mainstream fitness trend, like the step aerobics phenomenon of the 80s. Sequences of poses and even the word Om are going through the copyright process and ownership litigation. Definite signs in our free market economy that a former counter culture mainstay is now mainstream.

You can listen to the discussion by going to Talk of the Nation's web site.

This is interesting, yoga has gone mainstream- From soccer moms to urban hipsters. Sounds a bit like meth or something :)
