People who mobilize other people to find the "perfect spot" and then try to throw on the legs in a bad Pincha Mayurasana, at the exact time the photographer shoots.

During the last week for three times I was asked why I do not take pictures of myself in yoga positions, and then post them on various social networks, with a meaningful sentence, 200 different hashtags and why not the latest leggings advertising. After laughing, I have been told that everybody do so.
Now, always starting from the assumption that everyone in this world is free to do he or she wants , when I see the umpteenth photo of a "yogi", watching the horizon with a platonic look, and joining hands in prayer, I become agressive.

Why? Why are there people telling me that my job is the yoga model?

But what is a yoga model?
Have you ever witnessed the "making of" of these photographic sets? I have, unfortunately, at Bliss Beat Festival. People who mobilize other people to find the "perfect spot" and then try to throw on the legs in a bad Pincha Mayurasana, at the exact time the photographer shoots.

But why? Cui prodest?
Then I stop and I always remember Marco Mandrino at my first teacher training. “Do not discriminate": I make a good laugh and go over.

I always say that the arrogance of judgment is bad, and it is neither right nor correct to judge, but I realize that sometimes I just can not avoid it. Is there a border line? Is there a point where an opinion expressed by a friend becomes the judgment of an arrogant person who feels superior?
I remember a dear friend from Naples who always says that Naples is wonderful, only for the Neapolitans. Here I start to see yoga exactly like that. On the mat I find my shape, my size and my expression. I love to teach.

I love yoga, much less the "yogis".
