Aimée is over it, so over it, #yoga

Aimée Morrison writes: “I am officially 100% over ever seeing another skinny, pretty, blonde, expensively dressed yoga teacher doing incredibly difficult poses in airy and sunlit minimalist rooms, unsweaty and smiling beatifically. Honest to god, I think these kinds of braggy photos are the reverse of yoga. Of course, my feed is full of yoga ads with nothing but these kinds of images. OVER IT.”

I was glad I found  a yoga photo without skinny blondes for this post.

  1. Thank you. Yes. A Korean woman I sat next to on a very long plane ride echoed the sentiment. ‘White women, so boooring. So same. So fake. So entitled.’ It was hilarious, blatant honesty. I’m white (not blonde, a yogi or rich) but apparently safe to tell the truth to.
