“I do Playboy Yoga Wii for the alignment tips.”

Now We’ve Seen it All: Part II.

Wii Yoga And Playboy:

Not a 12 year old boy? There’s other, more-dressed yoga Wii.

    Laurie: it's obvious this chick doesn't even have a practice…so sad to leave it to playboy to market yoga for sex…OY! :/

    really. Look at her lower back in downdog. (if you can steal your eyes away from her, um assets, in those panties…) She does not practice, or if does, rarely.
