“Sometimes you have to run naked backwards through a cornfield at night to figure out who you are.” ~ Gary Busey on finding yourself
Gary Busey, in yet another head scratching, noggin’ swirling ‘wtf’ moment—announced yesterday that he will be stepping boldly into the yoga arena to launch his own brand of yoga.
Mr. Busey also promises to capitalize on the spirituality of his existing “Hobbitism,” while yet still being indifferent to everyone’s individual ‘apparatuses.’ When asked his attraction to Hobbits, Mr. Busey replied,
“Hobbits are special. They can see and hear things we can’t. Because, Middle Earth…has a different kind of electronic, spiritual, physical, and emotional energy going through it. So, the Hobbits, they got one up on us on that.”
While loosely based upon the existing 26 posture Bikram yoga system, in typical Busey fashion there will be subtle twists incorporated into the “Hot Hobbit Yoga” teaching methods.
Mr. Busey, in a clear effort to raise the ‘yoga stakes,’ will be swapping out the standard 105°F and 40 percent humidity heated room, for a much more “Middle Earth” conducive 106°F and 41 percent humidity studio.
With just this subtle change, Mr. Busey hopes students will be challenged to push forward and to connect with their ‘inner Hobbit.’ In this way, perhaps all of his students may learn to better approach the challenges and upsets life may occasionally toss their way.
And though, I do very much adore Mr. Gary Busey—I do hope perhaps someone may help him to ‘refine’ this, his newest venture.
