Yoga teaches you to calm your mind, to let go of your worldly concerns and troubles and embrace the infinite.
It also gives you some amazing reflexes behind the wheel, apparently. Meet Amy Taub, a yoga instructor who drag races in her spare time for her family's team, T&F Racing.
While at full throttle, Amy had quite the spin at Atco Dragway in New Jersey, but managed to wheel her way right out of the skid.
Not a bad move at 140 miles per hour.You can see the full video from the spin and her run right here. Best part of that video is the thumbs-up she shoots the ambulance that had come

There are few people in life worth listening to for any length of time these days, but George Galloway certainly is one of them. Whether or not you agree with Galloway's politics is neither here nor there. He is a true original of the species. He remains a wonderful orator, a firebrand politician who speaks with real conviction.
Galloway could be found on the BBC's Question Time panel on Thursday evening discussing Scotland's impending independence referendum with an audience of 16 and 17 years old. Ukip leader Nigel Farage was also on the panel only days after he had been railroaded out ofRead More »from Does any British club play the transfer market better than Celtic?

It is a brave pundit who attempts to follow the doyenne. In her guide to Wimbledon, published in Vanity Fair magazine, Pippa Middleton barely hits a bum note.
What observation, what perspicacity, what insight the future Queen’s sister offers up in her insider’s guide to what to look out for at the All England Club.
Take a raincoat, she suggests. Don’t plan dinner afterwards because matches sometimes go on late into the evening and there is apparently nothing worse in the human condition than missing Rafa Nadal in action because you’ve booked for a routine pizza with friends.
Do join in theRead More »from Nice work Pippa, but you forgot to mention Wimbledon’s big four

A 20-year-old Hawaiian surfing prodigy pulled off an incredible trick at the Oakley Pro in Bali, earning a perfect 10 for his efforts.
Experts immediately praised it as possibly the best in the sport's history, with his time in the air making it so special.
John John Florence, using the strong waves at Keramas, Indonesia, launched eight feet into the air, rotated 360 degrees, and landed safely on the rolling wave.
Surfing's scoring system meant that Florence could not be beaten in his heat, and advanced directly into the next round of the competition.

Jores Okore fell asleep during a medical ahead of his move to Aston Villa.
The Danish defender nodded of during an MRI scan before penning a four-year deal with the Premier League club.
The former FC Nordsjaelland player has seven caps, and said: "I just wanted to get the MRI scan done quickly. Boy, was I wrong. I was in the scanner and started a two-hour session.
“I have to remain completely quiet. I’m listening to the radio and I’m wondering what it will be like.
“How will my new life in Birmingham be? Will I speak English with a British twang? But I dozed off after half an hour and woke upRead More »from Dozy Okore nods off during Aston Villa medical

Neuer would surely appear higher on this list if the Bundesliga was as popular – and by that we mean ‘watched’ – outside Germany as, say, La Liga, Serie A or the Premier League.
The Germany goalkeeper won a domestic and European treble, went four Champions League knockout matches without conceding goals against Juventus andRead More »from Ballon d’Eurosport – No.23: Manuel Neuer
How much have you earned at your job the last seven months? Chances are it's more than American athlete Lolo Jones did.
As you may know, the track star has turned to bobsleigh and it turns out that pushing a sled down a hill doesn't pay as much as, well, anything. Not flipping burgers. Not digging ditches. Not folding T-shirts at Gap. Not even collecting unemployment benefit.
Seven months of bobsleigh has earned Ms Jones a grand total of $741.84 (£474.69). That's $105.97, or just under 68 quid, a month.
She revealed her earnings on Vine along with a caption that read "I'm going to be shortRead More »from Lolo Jones has earned £68 a month since taking up bobsleigh, but sport brands her ‘snobby’ for revealing all
Early Doors was left in a state of shock yesterday after learning that Joe Kinnear’s rambling media appearances and bizarre claims to be Newcastle’s next director of football were not inspired by some piece of Joaquin Phoenix-esque performance art, but were in fact the truth.
It is quite astonishing that such a nonsensical executive appointment can be made in a league which is a global marketing phenomenon and a multi-billion pound industry, but Kinnear’s elevation to such a position of power at St James’ Park demonstrates that while amateurism in football was essentially killed off over aRead More »from Ten top contenders for the England U21 job

It's a hot, sunny day in June on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Sicily, but the problem is that I'm not on the beach, I'm running up a volcano.
An even bigger problem is that I've been going for two hours, but I'm only half way to the top and I'm tired.
This is Mount Etna, at 3,330 meters (10,926 feet) the highest volcano in mainland Europe and one of the most active in the world, and on Saturday I was one of 160 starters gathered on the beach for the "Etna Supermarathon."
The 43 km (27 miles) race is just a tad over the official marathon distance of 42.2 km. But much more significantRead More »from Racing up Europe’s highest volcano in the Etna Supermarathon
