10 Myths About Yogis

Myth #5 – Yogis are the elite.


Excuse me? If elite means that I don’t have to shave my armpits or brush my teeth every time I go to yoga class, then, yes – I am a certified yogi!

Oh please! Stop stereotyping yogis – that they’re all rich and beautiful – with really nice cars and skin so soft and smooth. I mean, really? Maybe in Beverly Hills, they’re like that (thanks to Botox and plastic surgery). But here in our little city, anyone who wants to do yoga – moneyed or not, taken a bath recently or stinky, and snotty or clean – you have that right to be called a “yogi”.
