All Hail the Yoga Pant [Butt]

Yoga is a lifestyle.  And it seems for a girl/ women to truly embrace that lifestyle she must wear yoga pants EVERYWHERE!
You wear them to the mall, you wear them to school [some schools in Canada and The US have actually placed bans on them for being ‘too distracting’]
Fair.
Vancouver was named 3rd Worst Dressed City in the World by MSN Travel, their reasoning? One very simple reason, Yoga pants.

There is one reason, and one reason only, why we’ve decided to include Vancouver on this list of the sartorially damned: yoga pants. We blame you, Vancouver, birthplace of a certain, insanely popular yoga gear brand which will go unnamed, for spawning a street trend dreaded by all women with wobbly bits and fat deposits in the wrong places. Really, what gives with the whole wearing of bum hugging workout gear to every other place except the gym?

Also fair.

But, what about the girls who wear yoga pants and don’t have wobbly bits and fat deposits in the wrong places you ask?  Good question.  I was wondering the same thing so I did a little research and found Girls In Yoga Pants a photoblog dedicated to women wearing yoga pants or tights or jeggings.  Most of the photos provide us with posterior views of yoga pants, thus celebrating the desirable yoga butt. Some images are submitted by readers some are gleaned off the internet… there are a lot of mirror-butt-self-portraits– a lot, the photos fall into several categories: Big Booty, Amateur, Celebrities, Hall of Fame, In Public and Actual Yoga [love that one].

According to their Facebook fan page (which has over 6000 fans), the website “was created to show appreciation for the world’s greatest trend.” Their About page claims:
Why look at just girls, when you can look at girls in yoga pants? That’s the idea behind this always funny, always sexy website. Get your backside fix, feast your eyes on the web’s best posteriors, and pay homage to the derriere. Because it beats working. Now go look at what their momma’s gave them.
I appreciate yoga for the total body strengthening, increased flexibility and improved focus.  In fact, many top athletes and sports teams have incorporated yoga in their off season training because it helps athletes breathing patterns, flexibility, balance, strength, body awareness and self-consciousness.
But….I can also appreciate a women’s affinity for wearing them in the gym and out 🙂
