Yogi Offers NUDE Yoga Classes!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueYoga

In Cleveland, a yogi is literally offering nude yoga!

The yogi believes that naked yoga is completely freeing.

He calls clothes a coat of armor that once removed makes us more open, more vulnerable, in a good way.

They offer classes twice a week and even have co-ed classes.

Lemur Found MEDITATING At Belgian Zoo!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueInspirationZooLemur

This lemur has found inner peace…and he's loving it!

Sebastien Degardin from London was at the nature reserve Parc Paradiso in Mons, Belgium when he stumbled upon a peculiar site…

A lemur meditating like Buddha!

Legs crossed and arms extended, the lemur is a spitting image of the spiritual teacher.

Degardin was just glad he has his camera at the time!

He says the following about his encounter with the lemur:

He looked very peaceful. He sat on top of this big wooden house that all the lemurs sleep in.

No matter how close I got he didn’t stop. He didn’t even look up as I moved in for a close-up — he was so spaced out

We wonder what teachings this lemur has for us! LOLz!

Seems like Russell Brand is going back to his old womanizing ways after his split from Katy Perry.

The newly-single actor has apparently been "finding himself again," by spending time focusing on himself AND on the ladies.

David Duchovny Shoveled Horse Manure To Meditate

Filed under: David DuchovnyIcky Icky Dog PooHorsesFunny

David Duchovny recently went to a Buddhist meditation retreat at a monastery in upstate New York.

You'd think that'd probably be a really relaxing trip, but apparently it was almost the opposite.

Duchovny said:

"I just went on a retreat to a zen monastery in upstate New York. It's a type of Buddhism and meditation is a big part of it.

I'm a beginner, I've only been meditating for a little while. You pay a fee to go for this weekend and what I didn't know is that even though you pay a fee they put you to work immediately.

You go there and first you bus some tables after you eat and they had me working in the garden everyday for an hour-and-a-half. It was fun, I was shoveling horse shit out there. You pay money and then you shovel horse shit!"

There was of course, times where he wasn't knee deep in manure.

There was a lot of meditation. Though that didn't seem too relaxing either.

He said:

"You're meditating quite a lot, 45 minutes maybe three or four times a day… and it's a very strict kind of monastery, they don't want you moving at all while you're meditating. You're sitting cross-legged or sitting on your heels. Your feet go numb… but I figured out a way to cheat and to move.

There's a guy who walks around with a stick and he's banging it and you can ask him to hit you on the shoulders with the stick and it's supposed to hit a pressure point and relieve some sort of stress, so I as he walks by, you're supposed to (bow). This means, 'Please hit me'.

I'd hear him come around and hear him whacking people and when he comes I'll be able to adjust a little, that's all I'm thinking about [because] I'm so uncomfortable. So when he comes round I [bow] and he hits me once here (right shoulder) and he hits me there (left shoulder) and then you do this [bow] which means, 'Thank you for hitting me', so I got to adjust."

Sounds like he figured out how to make his stay somewhat enjoyable.

And even though it might not have been exactly what he expected, he did seem to think it was worthwhile, saying:

"I'm a seeker, a searcher, a seeker of wisdom. I don't know [if it was helpful]. It's hard to say how it gets into your life but I feel that it did.

I would go back. They have people who are there for three months, six months, people who spend their life there."

We're glad you didn't have a bad time shoveling horsie poo!
