If you’re like most Americans, you’ve probably resolved to lose weight, diet, or work out more this year…and every year for the past few years. But if the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, then that’s just crazy. Which is why we think you should rehab your resolutions. Instead of taking your tenth stab at losing those last few pounds, or throwing hundreds of dollars at an expensive detox cleanse, try Eoin Finn‘s Blissology Project: We bet you’ve never done before, and we swear it can do a lot to help you get your health back on track after an indulgent holiday season.

Here we are at the start of a new year, ready to keep our resolutions: get in shape, eat better, finally finish reading War and Peace and be able to casually compare our tumultuous love lives to those of Natasha and Prince Nikolay with anyone who’s there to listen. Mostly to exercise. But then we go outside, and it’s cold, too cold to go all the way to the gym, and we’re tired, that mac n’ cheese in a box is looking like the perfect no-fuss meal, and we feel short, and that book would make a great 1,500 page booster seat while we eat our macaroni.
Luckily, there’s a someone to keep you going, no matter where you are. Yogi and “Blissologist” Eoin Finn leads an engaging and powerful Yoga, Meditation and Lifestyle Program that streams online, so you can exercise without having to leave the house.
Try four of Eoin’s vinyasa yoga classes for 30 days for only $10, and receive his Blissology Project Handbook that helps you stick to your resolutions as the months go on. Watch the classes at home, or where ever your laptop can travel, and learn about fitness, nutrition and nature without breaking your New Year budget. More
As you probably know, I’m a huge proponent of the benefits to the body and mind offered by the wonderful and ancient practice of yoga. In fact, my vinyasa habit’s actually responsible for saving at least one life. Because everyone’s body is unique and receptive to different things, I’ve created my own special program of yoga positions, which I’m thrilled to be able to share with you. Namaste.

We already know about how Gwyneth Paltrow “saved” a stranger’s life by nearly hitting her with her SUV, which made the woman late for work… at the World Trade Center, on September 11, 2001! But apparently it takes Gwyn about three weeks to catch up with the Internet, because only now is she giving her “humble” response to this harrowing tale of bravery and chance. As you might’ve guessed, her response is pretty oblivious. More
Or maybe it isn’t, we’d never know the difference! Okay, so we can’t tell if this is sexy or not. We tend to find the hotness factor of yoga pretty darn close to zero, but it does take the edge off that motorcycle. Orlando Bloom: human yin yang? What do you think? Let us know in the comments. More
When we heard that Lady Gaga was suddenly calling herself a yoga junkie, we thought she was trying to rip-off our Teen Mom fan fiction. Then we remembered: wasn’t everyone in Hollywood talking about their yoga routines a couple years ago? Do people still do that, or has that been replaced with power breathing or something? We decided to honor the ancient art by dedicating this week’s Sweet Repeat to the exercise, or at least pictures of celebrities carrying around their yoga mats. More
“…and breathe out,” Amber Portwood opened her eyes and looked at her yoga instructor. She had finally found her chi centered, after hours of practicing her meditation technique. After just several sessions in the hatha yoga studio, she no longer wanted to hit her boyfriend Gary Shirley in the face so badly. At least, she felt less of a desire to do so in front of her baby daughter Leah, which was a good start. Now whenever she felt an attack of “the angries” coming on, Amber practiced her pranayama, counted to 10, and then told Gary to wait for her down in her newly-converted basement/punching room. More
Yoga for Dogs – Eliot Glazer over at Urlesque reports on the latest in healthy lifestyle trends: canine yoga. Doga, as (of course) it’s called, is all about finding balance while bonding with your pet. Just a guess, but we imagine the pups are great at downward-facing dog.
Okay, so “Downward Facing Wookie” may sound like a gross position my college boyfriend always wanted to try, but if it gets nerds off their computers and exercising, I’ll totally buy this series. Oh and by “nerds” I mean “myself, and everyone else I know.” More Star Wars yoga positions after the jump. (via) More
