Are you Ben Stiller? Or are you Vince Vaughn?
Anyway. Back to the movie.
If you haven’t seen “Dodgeball,” it pits the underdog (Vince Vaughn) who genuinely cares about the folks who come to his gym, but can’t get his sh*t together to run it as a business, against the uber-branded, uber-successful gym overlord (Ben Stiller), portrayed as more than a bit of a dickhead.
Most yoga teachers seem to be like the Vince Vaughn character: passionate about what they do, interested in the welfare of their students but useless on the business front. There’s a lot of chatter that you can’t make a living teaching yoga.
On the other end of the scale, there are the Ben Stillers.
I watched a yoga video clip on YouTube the other day that made me laugh my ass off. “This is hilarious,” I thought, “how this guy is doing a yoga version of dodgeball.”
He was shirtless and muscular. Of course. He said that his yoga brand was for everyone while, in the background, impossibly beautiful people (in teeny-tiny shorts) were doing implausibly difficult yoga poses.
Then I realized he wasn’t joking.
He was serious.
