Who wants to see you do yoga in sweatpants, or loose flowy clothing, or anything else which covers up that svelte yogi/yogini body?
How about trying bikini underwear, skin tight fabrics, or even lace underwear or outright nudity.
I’m sure you feel the same, and we need to fight against these disembodied, spiritualist put-downs of our bodies and our selves.
Another friend of mine, who is a Yoga teacher, suggested to me that a true “yoga picture” would be a picture of the practitioner’s face, one that showed the lines on their face, the soul in their eyes- the hard-won wisdom and transcendence that their years of practice had brought them. Anyone can have a nice face and still be overweight, stiff, and not know a bharadvajasana from a vishvamitanasana.

Here’s my rule of thumb: if the activity helps you to try out for Cirque de Soleil, it’s Yoga.If it has a merely spiritual or moral purpose, it’s something else.
