What’s Hot by Molly Nourmand

Earlier this month in our "Hottest yoga news of 2012,"  alignyo crowned actor Russell Brand "The yoga celebrity of the year." Why, you ask? Well, he is constantly making headlines for yoga-related news. Here's the latest: As a gesture of gratitude this holiday season, Russell gave his yoga teacher and spiritual mentor, Tej Kaur Khalsa – a car. Yep. He dropped $33,000 on a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV for her. Even though she wanted the car and appreciated the generous gesture, apparently Tej did not feel right about accepting the gift and suggested that he give it to someone who needs it more.
