I love the blog, Yoga Dork. It is an irreverent, but respectful look at the sometimes amusing world of Yoga. I believe they use the words “cheeky candor” to describe themselves. Today, as I was avoiding my work by checking in with my favorite web hangouts, I noticed they have re-organized their front page so that it now resembles a news aggregator like the Huffington Post.
But what set my heart a twitter is that I see they have added a section dedicated to Yoga in Sports. I hope this is going to be a regular feature, as it combines my two loves. If you have read my “about me” page, and frankly who hasn’t, you will note that I cop to an embarrassing addiction to ESPN, seriously I have a problem. From Mike & Mike at 7:00am to Coach & Company at 5:00, I listen all day to ESPN radio, its kind of sad, and as I have been told, “weird for a chick.”
The other day my husband had Lithium on our Sirius radio in the kitchen while we were making dinner and I said “hey, that’s the bumper music for SVP & Russillo!” I had no idea it was really a semi-popular song. I could feel the eye roll across the room, as he said, you really need to get a life.
Anyways, today’s Yoga Dork post was on the Celtic’s power forward Kevin Garnett. KG is 36 years old which, in basketball years, is practically elderly. He is an amazing talent and physical specimen who credits his yoga practice for helping him with flexibility and mental control. What is unintentionally hilarious about this is that KG is his also known for his propensity to drop f-bombs in interviews and on the court in earshot of the general public. He’s a pretty intense guy, so I can only imagine what a madman he would be without the benefits of yoga.
Another fun feature of Yoga Dork is their find your yogi name chart. Mine is Summer Apple Sprout, here is the link if you want to know yours http://yogadork.com/news/what-is-your-yogi-name-read-this-chart-and-find-out/. I really wish my name was Sophia Yvette White because that would make me Feather Sparkle Parsnip and that would be AWESOME!
