We Love Yoga (promise!)
After seven long episodes of bitching about everything that's wrong with The Yogaverse, Hanna and Victoria finally gets around to admitting that yeah, the actually truly love this thing called yoga too.
How Yoga Got Twisted: Selling Spirituality
Hanna and Victoria discuss essential oils, Panther Owl Cobra yoga classes, abundance and all the other blatant commercialism in the Yogaverse.
Trigger warning! This episode may lave you with the taste of vomit in your mouth.
It's Worse When a Yoga Teacher is a Piece of Shit than when a Plumber or a Pilates Teacher happens to be
Hanna and Victoria have been up front about not having their shit together. But the Yogaverse is filled with people who pretend they do. They are vegans who jet away on weekend workshops across the world. They are potheads preaching purity.
The Yogaverse is often a really shitty corner of the whole.
Aren't yoga teachers supposed to be nice?
Chakras and Other Yoga Lies
Emotions are stored in the hips. Twists detox the body. Doing wheel pose opens your heart. And inside our bodies we have (at least) seven chakras and they have different colours and different sounds. Right! Right? Or, totally wrong ...
Let's talk about sex. Let's talk about yoga and sex. Sex sells. Yoga sells. Sexy yoga sells. Or?
This week Hanna and Victoria discusses the relationship between yoga and sex, beyond the insanity of all the sex scandals that's rocked Yogaland.
They also try to figure out who truly consumes all those images of yoga babes in leggings and crop tops on the internet?
Is it time to recycle the yoga leggings and crop tops for something more 'modest'?
And what about Brahmacharya?
The Goddess Pose (book about Indra Deva)
200 hours ain't gonna cut it
This time Hanna and Victoria talks about why it is that while it takes 10,000 hours of intense practice to achieve mastery, it only takes 200 hours to become a certified yoga teacher.
(Yoga) Girls on Film
Yoga on the 'gram. A match made in hell or?
*Why #yoga leads you to such a yucky place and how we got there.
*Who to blame? Capitalism? Mark Zuckerberg's algorithms? Yoga Girl? Lululemon?
And is it possible to build a yoga teacher career on the 'gram these day? Is it possible to have a career as a yoga teacher and not be on it?
The Yoga Teacher Hustle: €80 Lululemon Leggings €7 Yoga class
Hanna and Victoria discuss how they got into this (yoga teaching) game. And what teaching group classes pay these days. The gist of it being: Not much. At least not in Berlin. Especially not after the Victory march of so called fitness apps.
They also name drop a legend.
