Om Kriya Babaji Namah Aum!
Hey Soul/Sol Brothers and Sistas,
Is it just me or are all the Yogi's and Yogini's in the magazine's perfect?
Perfect, Mista Jaycee?
Yeah, Perfect! I mean, judging by the my copy of Yoga Journal and Namaste TV some of these physiques seem unattainable.
Like Halle Berry?
One of my goals for this blog is to highlight Diversity in Yoga and to show some regular looking folks doing yoga!
I checked out this great Yoga show called "Namaste Yoga". Each episode features a different set of asanas designed to target a specific area of the body. The Yogini's are three perfect Women. One Asian and two Europeans. Damn! This some Soft Porn ish here!
Sorry, for all y'all people's who consciousness is in the upper chakras, but these Yogini's inspire my kundilini to rest in my Root chakra.
"Hey Where is my Lotion?!!!!!"
"I borrowed it! I'm practicing my yoga!"
"Ewww You nastee!"
"Hey! No one said that gaining inner peace would be easy!"
"No one said it would be messy either! And why you always locking the door? You don't need to lock the door to do Yoga! "
"Leave me alone! And get away from my Door!"
Ok, you should be laughin now, cause that's funny! Seriously, though, I would like to inspire folks like me to try and enjoy Yoga. I wanna see a Dude that has a beer gut start practicing Yoga!
I wanna see a Sista who's a size 16 or up begin to practice Yoga and get featured in the mags as they progress and transform.
If you check the bios of some the Yoga instructors, alot of them were dancers, martial artists, and cheerleaders. So, it's not that difficult to accept that they are limber and flexible. They've spent their lives being physical and in shape. They've taken their health and physiques to another level but what about the rest of us?
What if you're not an athlete? What if you've never had a sexxxy shape to begin with? Shouldn't we feature that aspect of Yoga more? I'm just saying?
Om Shanti Shalom!
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
