Yoga in Literature

Quotes from The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz

When it came to girls, the brother had a mind like a yogi. He latched on and stayed latched. p. 282

Me and Lola were living up in the Heights, separate apartments--this was before the whitekids started their invasion, when you could walk the entire length of Upper Manhattan and see not a single yoga mat. p. 311

oh junot diaz. how i love you.

also interesting how yoga's been co opted by all the white kids and now seems to represent upper middle class white women more than like, say, indian men on grass mats meditating..should we blame capitalism? lets!
