Yoga in the Barn? Not With This Guy

I am all for doing yoga outside, on the beach, in a field, heck even in a barn. And I'm also in favor of teaching kids how to do yoga, but this Yogi Okey Dokey dude with his way-too-tight yoga jeans and overzealous love for yoga (and hugging kids) is a little too much. I hope this is not a real TV show, because it's just the thing to discourage kids — and me, for that matter — from doing yoga.

He doesn't bother me. I feel like you have to be animated when working with children. To say he's "touching" the kids is a bit of stretch , he's just adjusting them which is normal in Yoga. Personally I get the creeps from personalities like Barney. This was obviously filmed in the 80's or maybe 90's. Anything aimed at children naturally seems weird to adults because of the over stimulation. I 'm especially surprised at Fit Sugar for being so biased towards this video.

I saw that when I was looking to see if it was real. I don't know whether the show would seem less creepy without the editing.

Hey Fit, watch how much folks rip on this video. Mrs. Oki Doki Yogi has not been appreciating all the ripping being done on her husband. This video apparently was reviewed favorably via Yoga Journal a while back and it is legit. The Yoga Dork website had a number of folks rip on it and the Mrs. responded. The farmer in this video is apparently a respected yogi. Personally I have not seen the clip and have been staying away from watching it, but you can see the farmer's wife's response here as well as more info regarding the people involved with this kids' show: http://www.yogadork.com/2009/08/05/who-is-the-eiei-yoga-farmer-meet-max-thomas-aka-yogi-oki-doki/

Everything from the cockerel called "Rasta" with the Jamaican accent, to the dodgy camera angles, and WHAT happened at 1:51? Did he grab that kid in the chest?!!!! Sadly, it's all to real, and can be bought on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/E-i-E-i-Yoga-Kids-Michael-Tetrick/dp/1561764019
