This Disclaimer Should Be Posted In Every Yoga Studio

By  | 

This disclaimer should be posted on the wall of every yoga studio to remind us that yoga isn’t about the things:
Yoga doesn’t care what your hair looks like.
Yoga doesn’t care if you wear Lululemon or Spiritual Gangster.
Yoga doesn’t care if you are vegetarian, if you eat meat or know what Kombucha is.
Yoga doesn’t care when the last time you practiced was — yesterday, six months ago, never.
Yoga doesn’t care what kind of mat you have, brand new or eating away at itself.

Yoga doesn’t care what color your skin is or what gender you choose to love.

Yoga doesn’t care if you wear mala beads.

Yoga doesn’t care how much money you have or what car you drive.
Yoga doesn’t care if you fart during your practice.
Yoga doesn’t care if you drink super food smoothies or coconut water.

Yoga doesn’t care if you can put your leg behind your head, or lick your own ass.

Yoga doesn’t care if you know what Ujjayi Pranayama is.

Yoga doesn’t care if you have a man bun.
Yoga doesn’t care if you juice or cleanse.
Yoga doesn’t care if you complete a 30-day challenge.
Yoga doesn’t care if you shop at Whole Foods.
Yoga doesn’t care if you remember to shave your armpits.

Yoga is just happy you show up.
