Let’s be real for a moment: Yoga in westernized countries has an image problem. It has a bikini-wearing, lemon-water-cleansing, size-zero, under-butt and side-boob revealing image problem. Type in “yoga” to any search engine, and your screen will be awash in images of lithe, model-esque twenty-somethings.
While there is nothing wrong with pictures of pretty yoginis, the vast under-representation of all other types of yoga practitioners (photogenic or not) in the media can make some feel like yoga is not for “people like me”.
At Cody we believe representation matters, which is why we put together this post to showcase the beautiful diversity of yoga.
