Hanging Out

So, what's the deal with all these people hanging out on these colorful silk hammocks? Basically it's taking the serenity, introspection, and contortion of yoga and elevating it to new heights - literally!

Posture Perfect

Sitting is the new silent killer (overtaking cigarettes... which isn't quite that silent since those people are constantly coughing, but I digress).
