Yoga in America


THANK YOU. TWO WOMEN ARE ON A QUEST TO SPREAD THEIR LOVE OF YOGA WITH THE NATION. KEN OUT BACK CHECKING OUT THEIR YOBGA VAN. Reporter: THEY HAVE THIS TOUR. IT’S SIX MONTHS LONG. IT’S ALL ABOUT YOGA. YOU CAN ALWAYS FOLLOW THEM THROUGH THE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS. THE OLD TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM AND THE FACEBOOK. MEET THE FACES AND THE BODIES OF THIS CAMPAIGN. THIS IS TAYLOR, THIS IS TARA; IS THAT RIGHT? THAT’S RIGHT. Reporter: AND THEY HAVE BEEN TRAVEL ACROSS THE COUNTRY. GIVE ME — WHAT IS THIS LIVE BE YOGA? YOGA JOURNAL AND GAIA HAVE BEEN TRAVELING THE COUNTRY AND TALKING TO PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE IN AMERICA. WE GO TO STUDIOS, RETREATS AND FESTIVALS AND PLACES YOU WOULDN’T THINK THAT ITS BEING PRACTICED LIKE RECOVERY CENTERS, ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AND PRISONS. THE WHOLE PURPOSE IS TO SURVEY THE LANDSCAPE OF YOGA AND SHOW THAT REALLY ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE ARE PRACTICING. Reporter: YOU KNOW IT SEEMS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE. SPEAKING OF GOING TO PRISONS THEY WILL GO TO SAN QUENTIN AT THE END OF THE NEXT MONTH. IT’LL BE PART OF THE TOUR. ONE OF THE KEEL PLACES HAVE YOU BEEN TOO. YOU VISITED A MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL CLUB. THEIR MANAGER IS WEIRD. LIKE HE DOES ALL THESE THINGS TO GET THE PLAYERS IN TUNE. YOU HUNG OUT WITH THEIR MENTAL STRENGTH COACH. WHAT WAS THAT LIKE? THE MENTAL WELLNESS COACH. HE IS BASICALLY TALKING ABOUT REALLY PUTTING IN MINDFULNESS AND IT’S MAKING A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THEIR PERFORMANCE. JOE MADDEN SAID WE AREN’T ASKING YOU TO BE PERFECT. WE ARE ASKING YOU TO BE PRESENT AND THESE PLAYERS REALLY JUST GRASPING ONTO THIS AND IT’S JUST EXPLODING. IT’S GREAT. Reporter: WHAT’S THE MAJOR THING THAT’S SO POSITIVE? I KNOW I’M IN MY 40s AND I HAVE WORKED OUT WITH WEIGHTS AND RUNNING. I’M SUPER STIFF. WOULD YOGA HELP? IT’S SO GREAT FOR SO MANY DIFFERENT THINGS. IT’S THE PHYSICAL, STRENGTHENING, HELPING YOU BE MORE LIMBER BUT IT’S ALSO GREAT FOR MENTAL TOO. IT HELPS YOU DESTRESS. IT LETS YOU BE MORE AWARE OF YOURSELF AND LESS REACTIVE. MAYBE IF YOU ARE IN TRAFFIC YOU CAN TAKE A DEEP BREATHE AND SAY I WILL GO ABOUT MY DAY. Reporter: WE ARE OUT HERE. WHAT CAN WE DO? IS THERE A POSE WE CAN DO RIGHT NOW? I WON’T HAVE TO WORK. I WON’T HAVE TO MOVE. Reporter: WE ARE KIND OF COLD OUT HERE AND — WHAT WE CAN DO IS NOT IN A COMFORTABLE — TAKE A DEEP INHALE, PUT OUR HANDS TOGETHER. GOOD JOB. AND THE FACT WE ARE COLD AND THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. I DON’T WANT TO ACCEPT IT. WE WILL LOVE IT ANY WAY. THE SUN IS SHINING AND WE WILL PUT IN PERSPECTIVE. Reporter: I COULD HAVE USED YOU FOR THE SUPER BOWL COVERAGE AT SUPER BOWL CITY IN SAN FRANCISCO WHEN WE WERE FREEZING AT FOUR IN THE MORNING IN FEBRUARY. IN THE NEXT HOUR, THEY WILL GIVE US SOME OF THE POSES TO HELP US GET IMPORTANT SPOTS TIGHT. YEAH. Reporter: TIGHTEN THAT UP.
