    ignorance underlies all difficulties, it is mistaking the impermanent for the permanent, the impure for the pure, suffering for ease, and what is not the self for the self, yet even the wise clutch at the body.. loosen the grip to understand the hows and whys of life’s past and future.

    TOO late. They’ve got to do one each for pilates and trance dance.

  • Thank you. These are wonderful. It’s important for every individual to remember and celebrate their body. I just ordered three and I’m looking forward to representing them! Thanks again.

  • This paragraph will help the internet users
    for creating new website or even a blog from start
    to end.

    Parading behind even print fashion, evidently … absolutely.

    Bringing up the rear … go, Stepford Wives, go!

    Guess with the imagination it takes to make it in fashion design, comes the forward thinking on other things ….

    NO! New York City-style vinyasa yoga was enough of a rejoinder to Iyengar with his tricks and handless headstand in the personage of that other old fart, Sri Dharma Mittra …

    And sweaty as hell, as well.

    [But it had to try to be vegan sweat, if possible]

    Good call that you pick up that this is primarily a woman’s issue; could be a metrosexual’s male issue as well … Blue collar rough guys might not give a hoot … or show up to a “Broga” or DDP kind of class …

    But not so good in that you don’t seem to understand that the “my yoga body” trope is for emphasis and fighting back against discrimination (to the ramparts! We have been marginalized for too long!) and calling this “narcissism” is really reaching (pun intended) …

  • VQ2

    Then you do not understand the New Age or metrosexual man’s mind …
    There are enough of them to matter and they are part of the problem, too … if it isn’t their sexually predatory nature, it’s their fastidiousness and snobbery (and hunger for image) … why do you think the women are competitive with each other … ?

    And should a woman own and teach at said studio, and be the object of a male student’s desire–she will shut off parts of herself and play favorites with some of the men. I’ve seen it happen. I’m a woman, too old to matter or to go after these men; but as a student, I’d been shortchanged. (Yup, panned then on Yelp at first and will never return there for a yoga class. I will never experience a kirtan there. I will never know yoga from this teacher who’d wanted me in her class. It hurts in the long run but not for reasons one might think …)

    They want to impress this type of man who deigns to show up in this gynocentric arena, some looking to score …

    When it starts being “bad for business” and their best competition is online or at a gym. That’s when they come out with the T-shirts. Women don’t wear those shirts to make the rounds of the weight-training room or the pool deck, ya know. And they don’t really need to wear this shirt at home unless they are even more unmotivated to do at-home yoga than I am …

    I thought you men were the LOGICAL ones … heh heh …

    Whack job? At least Iyengar didn’t spend all of his free posting his misogynist views on YD. Let him rest in peace. Must be a slow news day at the Huffington Post.

  • Tim

    Call my self a “man?” The 1950s called…they want their Stewart J. Lawrence back. Who the hell hired you at Huff Post anyway? Do they know you sneak away on your lunch break to raid the YD comments?

  • VQ2

    Tim, you should know by now that Huffington Post writers are either independent contractors or not paid at all. Nobody polices any writer’s “lunch break” around there …

  • VQ2

    @Tim, yup – leave everything as it is. We (“women”, “society”) would not need these T-shirts if capitalistic “yoga” didn’t organically seem to produce these kyriarchical cliques. Of course, this could be mistaken for “compulsion”. Truth is, I. hold. a. grudge.

    These opportunists swoop in just as Lululemon is losing market share, and possibly interest in “yoga”. They get wind of a backlash against commercialized yoga (a.k.a. “yoga”). Or whatever else.
    Onward to the new “uniform” (or “anti-uniform” for the “counterculture” …)

  • Tim

    Take your literal glasses off VQ and seek professional help about your compulsion to comment on every YD post. You and Lawrence should get a room.
