A web riff on a YouTube comedy video – sex

New York Times Between Poses, a Bar­rage of Pickup Lines: the YouTube video men­tioned in this arti­cle is funny, though it’s not ready for prime time. I just can’t rec­og­nize a fac­sim­ile of a real yoga class in the video but that may just be an issue of pro­duc­tion val­ues. But the pre­text of the video is a real issue and I’ve seen the phe­nom­e­non in a few of my classes.

Flow Yoga, my down­town stu­dio, gets men­tioned in the arti­cle because it has a Thurs­day night social get-​​together, and even has plans for speed dating.

This story actu­ally opens an eth­i­cal issue of human rela­tions on the yoga mat, espe­cially when teacher-​​student inter­play moves out­side the yoga stu­dio and espe­cially when sex­ual chem­istry is thrown into the mix.
