Some of the people who practice yoga are super-trendy health freaks. You know the type: the tall, toned, lean, slender, buff body; the trendy clothes made with hemp or fabrics imported from India; and the intricate tattoo running down the spine.
Yoga has become a multi-billion-dollar industry in the past decade. Celebrities such as Madonna practice yoga. You can see fashionable people in loose-fitting "yoga wear" on the streets of Beverly Hills and other chi-chi locales.
We hope that these trendy trappings don't prevent anyone from trying yoga with weights. Yoga is at least 5,000 years old, it defies fashion trends, and it has permanent appeal. Don't be afraid to try it because you're not a super-trendy health freak.
