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.

I agree. I know for many it’s about money….and that we all need to have an income…but it isn’t yoga for me either.
Now THIS is the kind of yoga I want to practice! I recently unfollowed several of these pages for my sanity.
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.
Agree 100%. Give me authenticity and a few rolls of belly fat any day thanks
