Hot yoga has been popular for years, and now cold workouts are getting popular too. But what temperature should the room be when you exercise?
At 51 years old, the actress says she's in "best shape of her life," and that's thanks to working out five times a week and sticking to a ketogenic diet.
“I swear it works, as silly as you may feel,” the royal-to-be recently said of the practice. “On days I do it, my cheekbones and jawline are waaay more sculpted.”
Lululemon released a statement saying that CEO Laurent Potdevin "fell short" of the company's standards of conduct. Is the fitness industry — including yoga — next in line for a sexual harassment reckoning?
A new study has determined that while Bikram yoga is beneficial to cardiovascular health, its signature high studio temperatures might not be as necessary as previously thought.

Hillary Clinton opened up about her failed presidential campaign, how she handled losing to a reality TV star, and what that night was really like when she went in expecting to be the first female American president. SEE ALSO: Hillary Clinton calls Donald Trump 'a creep' in election memoir In a CBS Sunday Morning interview with anchor Jane Pauley (Clinton taped the segment Friday at her New York home), Clinton looked back at the past 10 months and shared some inside perspective of the campaign against Donald Trump. Since the election, and with a book coming out this week detailing about what happened, Clinton made clear in the Sunday interview that she's done running for public office. "I am done being a candidate," she said. But she's not done with politics, she assured. Clinton talked about the night and days after she lost. Late on election night after realizing this was not going as expected, she called Trump to concede and then she called President Obama. "I felt like I had let everybody down," she said. After an unexpected loss, she admits that she hadn't prepared for this scenario. "I had not drafted a concession speech," she said with a sad chuckle. "I had been working on a victory speech." As to how she dealt with the huge political blow, she cleaned, took plenty of long walks in the woods, and discovered the benefits of yogic breathing. "Off I went into a frenzy of closet cleaning and long walks in the woods, and playing with my dogs, and yoga — alternative nostril breathing, which I highly recommend — trying to calm myself down. And, you know, my fair share of chardonnay." Despite the jokes about how she coped, she admits she really struggled: "I couldn't feel, I couldn't think. I was just gobsmacked, wiped out." Looking back at the election, Clinton again called Trump a creep and talked about practice sessions to train for Trump "scowling and leering" at her at the second debate — right after the "grab them by the pussy" Access Hollywood tapes leaked. After staying relatively quiet about her personal take on the campaign, with the book coming out now we're hearing a lot more of the details straight from Clinton. The interview is embedded above.

This process helps me relate to my students better, because I can describe, step-by-step, my own frustrations, growth and realizations about following cues, and in turn, they might just try listening to mine!” (2) Gradiva Ciani, Equinox yoga instructor in Miami Pose: Visvamitrasana (twisting and soaring Visvamitra’s pose) “When I first started practicing this complex asana, which involves arm balancing, hip and shoulder opener and hamstring stretch, it felt awkward.

Tory Burch’s brand new line, Tory Sport, is loaded with casual, classic sportswear, perfect for wearing to the gym, from the gym, at the gym, and all times in between. Just don’t call it “athleisure.” “You know, there used to be something called leisure suits… I can’t really explain it, it’s just not my favorite name!” Burch told Yahoo Style Wednesday, at the opening of the Tory Sport pop-up store in New York’s SoHo neighborhood—the very same location in which she debuted her namesake line 11 years earlier. Instead, Tory Sport’s Fall 2015 collection includes a category of clothing called ‘Coming & Going’—which joins a range performance wear for a wide variety of athletic activities, including tennis, golf, yoga, running, and water sports. There are about 150 pieces in total, ranging in price from $55 for performance tops to $550 for outerwear. Burch, who’s been interested in doing sportswear for eight years—and actually began working on Tory Sport three years ago—saw a gap in the market for classic and elegant, yet still functional, clothing. “For me, I wasn’t finding the kind of [sportswear] I loved from high school and college.

Just when the exorbitantly priced athleticwear brand presumably thought its mass product recalls were a thing of the past (who could forget the Great See-Through Yoga Pants Debacle of 2013?), it’s been hit with another. Literally! According to CNN, Lululemon is now recalling more than 300,000 of its women’s tops because wearers have complained that the items’ drawstrings — which are around the neck area and feature hard tips — have painfully whipped them in the noggin. The Consumer Product Safety Commission explains that, “when the elastic draw cord with a hard tip in the hood or around the neck area is pulled or caught on something and released, it can snap back, impact the face area and result in injury.“ So far, there have been at least "seven reported incidents, resulting in seven injuries to the face and eye.” Ouch. An example of the kind of drawstrings Lululemon is recalling. In Lulu’s home country of Canada, where 185,000 of the hazardous $75 to $260 tops reportedly reside, customers have been asked to “stop wearing the tops with the elastic draw cord and either remove the draw cord or contact Lululemon Athletica to request a new, non-elastic draw cord with written instructions on how to replace the draw cord.” Said a Lulu spokesperson, “Our main priority is ensuring the product works for our guests, and we believe this is the necessary proactive action.
