Italian Yoga: The Latest Innovation in Lifestyle Wellness

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Dec 21, 2012) - Italian Yoga is a documentary of old Italian men in Cambridge -- our fair city -- MA. Rather than stretching, sweating, or chanting, Tom, Peter, Ray, Drew, Richie, Pepe, Armando, and three guys named Tony sit at the café, sip espresso, and meditate on life through laughter and storytelling.

According to the Kickstarter page for Italian Yoga, these men propose to share their expertise for il dolce far niente (aka the "sweet do nothing"). Practiced from the Greek Isles to Gibraltar, Italian Yoga is the art of Mediterranean mindfulness. Rather than running to work with a venti latte, the goal is to sit and simply enjoy "yoga without the exercise."

Hoping for a gig that requires even less effort than a two-hour workweek, this unique group of friends is aspiring to Kickstart Italian Yoga.

Ray: Do you have the time?
Peter: For what?
Ray: Of day!
Peter: Nope, but I have time for everything else.

Demonstrating all aspects of Italian Yoga from the Morning Pose to the Nap Posture, this short documentary from the corner café is as serious as your soul will allow. This lively group also includes occasional celebrity cameos, such as Tom and Ray Magliozzi of Car Talk fame. "It's impossible to describe what we are like together," admits Ray's son, Drew. "Although each of us is crazy in isolation, together we possess an uncanny enlightenment." 

Did you ever wonder what sage wisdom old Italian men possess about life, leisure, love, automobiles and happiness? If you are yearning for transcendental comedy on the small screen, then this Kickstarter is for you. For the full Italian Yoga Kickstarter, visit the following link:
