While you might have been busy making your "go-bag" for Hurricane Sandy, we've been scouring the web for the latest news of all things yoga. If you’re stuck inside, this week’s Hot off the Mat helps take your mind off Sandy or whatever else might be making you a bit anxious today.
Warm up with this week's hot yoga news:
Work from home asanas
If you're not use to working from home, you're probably wondering how full-time freelancers get anything done. The answer: yoga. This funny illustrated guide, 7 Healthy Home Office Poses (or as we call it, yoga for freelancers), features poses like Finally on the Last Draftasana to help calm your mind, stretch your muscles and spark your creativity.
Surfing around today? Check out possibly the perfect computer for yogis. The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga is a brand new four-in-one tech device, apparently named for it’s flexible features. The Yoga converts from a laptop to a tablet, has a screen that swivels a full 360 degrees and much more. Watch the Yoga in action in this 3-minute commercial. We’re not sure how we feel about the name yet, but we are happy that the commercial doesn’t feature a limber yogini contorting herself into pretzel poses.
Halloween is Wednesday and you still don’t have a costume? While you wait out Hurricane Sandy, why not try putting together one of our DIY Yoga Costume ideas? We promise you that Sandy will pass and when it does, you’ll be happy you had the time to make one of these costumes for your night on the town or studio Halloween party.
