Possibly only for the commercial supermodeling of yoga clothes, if that:
Possibly only for demo-ing at a highly hyped and commercialized Yoga Journal big conference ....
The rest is *maya*, which is Sanskrit for illusion ...
from the article by Mother Nature Network's Lauren Walker--
"It is nearly impossible to be unaffected by the culture in which we live. Even if you’re a forward-thinking free spirit, free in your mind, you are steeped in the culture around you. Like a teabag in a cup of hot water, you can’t stop your environment from seeping in. But the truth is, you can start to free yourself a little from the insanity. This is where yoga comes in. Yoga is about many things, and one of them is separating your mind from clinging to what it perceives as reality.
In olden days being thin was a sign of poverty, and the painters (the old-fashioned media) depicted women of girth and curve as our cultural beauty figures.
Today, we get so many negative messages about a bit of extra flesh that some people won’t even enter a yoga studio, let alone commit to a serious practice, because they think they are "too big." www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/09/yoga-bod
