On page 53 of the latest Yoga Journal there’s an ad for Slim Quick Ultra Calorie Burner to lose weight. In the same issue there is a story that the healing power of yoga will cure what ails America without pills or surgery.
Some magazines don’t accept advertising for products that are anathema to their magazine’s philosophy.
Apparently Yoga Journal does not have those same advertising ethics.
It would have been funnier if the ad was on a page that faced a story about yoga being about learning how to accept yourself and how you are perfect in this moment just the way you are. But that’s my sense of humor. Not everyone’s cup of chai.
I think that Calorie Burner is for everyone who wants to look better in those naked yoga classes.
