Corpsing yoga woman sues New York studio for masturbating handyman

by | 5th, February 2013

CAN you put a price on this? Keiko Herskovitz is suing Related Companies, which owns Equinox, for unspecified damages. Herskovitz enjoys yoga at Equinox Pure Yoga West on New York’s Upper West Side. She alleges that whilst meditating in the corpse pose (see above), a maintenance man entered the room. She “felt that there was a person next to her, and she opened her eyes to find a Pure Yoga employee, a maintenance associate, about two feet away, masturbating.”

Fact: Masturbating is not a yoga pose.

Fact 2: Mastubating to the corpse pose may mark you out as a necrophiliac.

Fact 3: Masturbating to the child pose is much worse.

Herskovitz, 55, says she “confronted the maintenance employee and asked, ‘what are you doing?’ ” at which point, the man, 19, “quickly covered himself with a yoga blanket and ran out of the room.”

Her lawsuit says she knew full well what he was doing.

Herskovitz complained. She says Pure Yoga never notified the police. But she did.

If she’s right, as she claims, what price the damage? How is the sum fixed? Since when do handymen carry yoga blankets? And what the hell is a straight man doing in a yoga studio not accompanied by a girlfriend with a matching mat?
