September is National Yoga Month. Normally I wouldn’t care. Normally I would roll my eyes and throw National Yoga Month in the ridiculous category of other so-called Hallmark holidays like Sweetest Day or last week’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day. But this year is different. This year National Yoga Month is a bit special to me. I invented a patented yoga rug that I named the Shama Yoga Rug. It is currently distributed by Manduka. Last week my Shama Yoga Rug was included on Self.com’s list of Best New Yoga Gear For National Yoga Month.
I’m proud. So is Yoda. In celebration he performed his favorite trick on video (when bribed with a treat, of course). This blog post is shamelessly a big fat excuse to show you that Yoda does yoga. He’s performing adho mukha svanasana (Sanskrit for the yoga pose downward facing dog) on a Shama Rug. I think his form is better than mine.
