If you’re a YD frequent visitor you probably know we love ourselves a good debate. We also love our pals at elephant journal! And who doesn’t looove Celebriyogis? *eye roll* OK so not everyone loves them a celeb endorsement and the folks at elephant journal took it to task and asked the perennial question, “Celebs + Yoga, Who cares?” which then snowballed into a debate over “any publicity is good publicity” vs. ” but what if it’s by a not-so-good celebrity”? We’re still talking about yoga here. So Jennifer Aniston, maybe. But what if it’s someone like…Lindsay Lohan, or Paris Hilton?! Turns out they’ve both been rumored to do the down dog. On the mat! you dirty minds. See Ms. Hilton, in a comedic attempt above.
So what do you think about celeb yoga endorsements and publicity? Do they detract from “real” yoga? Are they beneficial in spreading YogaPop in the West? As for us, we pretty much dig it. Yoga’s for all! And if we weren’t an image-conscious culture obsessed with food and fitness, and celebs, we probably wouldn’t even know how Heidi Klum shed those extra pounds after having her baby!
