Beautiful people, beautiful poses

In America today, yoga has the reputation of being exclusively for thin, wealthy white women. Aside from how removed this is from yoga's origins, it also ignores the body diversity that exists among practitioners. Not all yogis look like Lululemon models, and that's a wonderful thing.

Here are some committed yogis who are stretching the meaning of the term "yoga bodies."

1. They're turning dumb beauty standards on their heads.

6. Even when they're alone in some scorched wasteland, it's cool, don't worry, they've got it.

7. They've mastered triangle pose.

8. And chaturanga.
