Prevention Logo By Sarah Klein of Prevention | Slide 1 of 9: We know what you're thinking: If you're not skinny, rich, white, and female, yoga's not for you. But yoga is experiencing a moment of inclusion that puts a seriously giddy smile on our faces. "The reality is that yoga students all over the world are incredibly diverse," Eliot says. "You should know that there are lots of other people just like you doing yoga." In fact, take a look at these yogis who prove there's no such thing as a "yoga body."Bellofatto hates the idea that people might be missing out on the practice because of the stereotypical image of yoga. "It saddens me to think people assume they can't do yoga just because of a picture they saw on Instagram," she says, "especially because it would be really amazing for them."
