Ever since an article appeared on the sports pages in the newspaper last week about Americans turning yoga into a competitive sport (even hoping to bring it to the Olympics as a medal event!), I am at a loss for words. Although I don’t practice yoga, I have rarely heard of something so absurd as this. And yet I can’t say I’m surprised; it’s just America doing what it always does, making everything into « material » for consumption.
