I never bought a yoga poster with postures on it and the only type of yoga poster I’m familiar with is the stick figure variety.
No, actually that’s not true. I do have a small poster with the Ashtanga yoga series on it, and it’s fair to say that Sharath is fairly lean and fit.
It never occurred to me that there actually wasn’t a poster that featured all sorts of body shapes.
Well, now there is. Danish artist and animator Marie Jørgensen has created…
a poster with the basic poses and their names, aesthetically presented in a simple fashion with natural and relatable human bodies.
It’s meant to illustrate that yoga is for every body and that there is no particular way a “yoga body” (whatever that means) should look like. Marie wants to instil a sense of confidence and assurance.
Because hey, after all, they all just look like – me.
What’s your take on this new trend?
