Dating a Yoga Goddess

In her delightful essay "Dating a Yoga Goddess" on Elephant Journal, Alex Smith writes honestly and humorously about the romantic life of the Yoga Goddess: "a woman from a Western civilization who teaches yoga for a living, especially in a metropolis of some kind, is a complicated creature who has elected to remove her Western goggles and instead apply and be guided by Eastern philosophies and practices of self-actualization." The Yoga Goddess is certainly not a force to be trifled with, and thereby requires a set of specific dating principles. Are you a Yoga Goddess? Have you dated a Yoga Goddess? Check it out and tell us what you think!


  1. This will be an excellent read considering that some yoga instructors are hardcore Eastern practitioners, while living in the States. It will be great to get a glimpse of how they date normal guys.

  2. um, I wrote this article. not alex. not that it matters, just sayin.
