Bill Gross is in the feathered-peacock position. In a glass-walled room with a perfect view of the Pacific Ocean, the highest-paid money manager in the world is standing on his head–his legs split almost horizontally. His muscles are twitching under the strain. Sweat is trickling into his mustache. His face has turned beet red, yet he’s able to hum along to Van Morrison’s rhythmic “Back on Top.” All the while, his personal yoga instructor, a former Marine turned guru named Geo Takoma, chants breathlessly: Free your mind of the outside world. Free your mind of work and responsibilities. Have no thoughts of the bond market.
