Like Honor Jones noted in her incendiary New York Times op-ed this weekend, I too have noticed that, lately, everyone and their mother has been praying to the church of mesh-paneled yoga leggings. And I mean literal mothers—people of all ages and sizes do (and are absolutely allowed to) kneel at the altar of sheer AF leggings. Look, I can’t lie. I, too, am a little disgusted by the latest monster to bloom from the yoga-industrial complex.
Every yogi can melt hip tension with this Monkey Pose sequence (with mods!) from the yoga teacher, body-positive advocate, and Instagram star. What you’ve heard is true: Our hips hold all the stress and fear that naturally comes up in our daily lives. But recommend Hanumanasana to unwind that tension, and some yogis bow out. Because—splits? No way. But stick with us for for a minute. With a few tweaks, Monkey Pose can be accessible to everyone.
Six years ago, Jessamyn Stanley decided to give yoga another try. Years prior she'd been convinced that the exercise was not for her, but this time around was different.Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with Stanley (@JessNotJazz), about her new book, "Every Body Yoga: Let Go of Fear, Get On the Mat, Love Your Body," and about what she hopes yoga will do for others.Poses From The BookThe Chair Pose.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
