Let’s face it. It can be intimidating when you work out regularly as part of your healthy living lifestyle, and you see online or magazine photos of “perfect bodies”. Sometimes, seeing those “perfect bodies” can make you feel bad about how you look even though your body is fine just the way it is.
When you react from a place of comparison, it diminishes who you are. Which is why my eyebrows raised when I recently ran across a blog that talked about (and showed) real yoga bodies. According to the blog, “The magic of yoga is that it has the capacity to bring us back over and over to the perfectly imperfect nature of our truest selves.”
Walk into a yoga class and you’ll likely hear discourse about multiplicity and acceptance, but look around and you may see why the Western yoga world has a reputation of uniformity. Recent conversations have focused on the way in which “curvaceous” bodies have been left out of mainstream yoga culture.
