Yoga for the Discerning, Shameless Nerd

I know the Star Wars yoga guy has been around for a while, but now that Time magazine has shown his particular brand of yoga from a galaxy far, far away in video form, it’s high time I finally featured him on TR. I’m not going to lie, I love this dude. I’ve shown countless people committing various acts of nerdery who have no idea they look ridiculous, and it’s always awkward. But this guys clearly knows he looks ridiculous, and just doesn’t give a shit — otherwise he wouldn’t be yeling out Chewbacca noises in the middle of Central Park. It’s that kind of shamelessness that I admire — as well as his frank admission that “Crane pose? That means nothing to me. But I TIE Fighter pose? Now that I get.” Rock on, Matthew Latkiewicz. Rock the hell on. (Via Geekosystem)
