I received an email today from Yoga Journal asking my permission to publish my email to them as a letter. This is what I had to say about their ad choices:
“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.
I think that Calorie Burner is for everyone who wants to look better in those naked yoga classes.
Yoga Journal may not consider moi as having one of the best yoga blogs (but YogaDawg stuck up for me), but they love my letters! Years ago they also published one of mine about how yoga is not one size fits all.
Somebody’s gotta do it…..
