yoga journal "inappropriate yoga guy"

Update: Episode Two is released! A few choice Ogden, the Inappropriate Yoga Guy quotes from this episode: “Hellllo Kathryn Budig. You guys do yoga in your conference room? Sweet. Can I have this calendar? Can I put my files in here? That’s a lot of mercury in there.” Note the Richard Freeman poster on the wall. And…nice pink socks.


We’re huge fans of Ogden (click here for his Youtube millions-viewed vid), as long as we don’t have to work with him. This video series represents (Divine) inspiration on the part of the powers-that-be over at Yoga Journal, good work! And nice to see our old buddies Jade Yoga sponsoring the vids…that’s smart advertising. 

Unfortunately, the vids aren’t embeddable (tho, ultimately, everyone is embeddable according to Ogden), so you’ll hafta click here for Episode One. And here for episode two.

Update: video is on youtube.

  1. Thanks Yoga Journal! Its not enough that you completely ignore men in yoga, you just had to create this smarmy character which has become a caricature of a yogi.
