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.
