We’ve all witnessed it. Maybe we’re even guilty of it. Public Displays of Yoga (PDY): it’s a thing. And, depending on what circles you swim in, possibly a problem.
TeamBuy.ca pokes fun at yoga exhibitionism and kicks off their “National Yoga Week” campaign with a clever video encouraging people to say no to PDY and just get to class already. Or buy a class pass – this is, after all, “TeamBuy.”
There’s no information about exactly when “National Yoga Week” happens or what it entails (other than buying stuff…?). I’m assuming it’s sometime around now, as the video was posted on May 17.
I’d also like to start my own viral video campaign called “Say NO to National Yoga Week/Month/Year/etc.” I can’t even keep track of them anymore, but it seems like at least six different months of the year have been designated “National Yoga Month” by some well-meaning group. This “National Yoga Week,” however, may just be the most blatantly commercial of the lot.
