Now we've seen it all: Playboy Yoga videos with Sara Jean Underwood.
It was only a matter of time, the ultimate challenge to those "Yobo" fans who say that Yoga for Weight Loss, Disco Yoga, Bikram, Adidas Yoga with (my friend) Rainbeau Mars and Yoga without all that annoying granola, Chanting or Sanskrit may not be "traditional yoga" (a moving target in and of itself), but nevertheless may help open the door to those who might not ordinarily be interested in pure yoga, true yoga, quality yoga.
Well, Sara Jean Underwood, a young lady who won the 2007 Playmate of the Year award, has inaugurated a new series of yoga videos that are all over the Playboy.com site. Yup, there's a new url in town:
Just the url itself is enough to provoke convulsions, grimaces, grins, vomiting and/or ogling. Beauty -- or otherwise -- is in the eye of the beholder.
This is provocative stuff -- it raises some tough questions about the Future of Yoga (some of which are addressed by elephant, yogadork, itsallyogababy, and joellhahn in comments, by our readers in the links above).
In any case, as the Buddhists say, it's our obstacles or enemies that are our best friends, provoking self-examination, questioning and growing pains.
Now we've seen everything.*
*Actually, no we haven't. If you like what you see, you can become a member and watch all her instructional videos in the nude (I mean her, not you, you can naked yoga it up -- in the privacy of your own home, please -- any old time you like).
