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.  Why?  Aren't yoga teachers supposed to be nice?

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'?
