My Mom got me a subscription to Yoga Journal a few months ago in the hopes of putting the kibosh on my couch potato ways. It worked, sort of. Since the beginning of the summer I’ve been doing one activity or another every day and for the last month I’ve start doing yoga – a practice I haven’t done since my early 20s.

Don’t get me wrong, I can still do a Netflix marathon with the best of them and pizza, not to mention peanut butter M&Ms, are a major food group as far as I’m concerned. I’ve just added kale in there for good measure and every other bag of Twizzlers I try to eat an apple or something.

Yoga Journal like every other magazine on the face of the earth is way too full of ads, but to save me from the boredom that is Alicia Silverstone trying to sell me a multi-vitamin, I thank the powers that be, everyday, for Kathryn Budig’s nude yoga Toesox ads:

Until recently, I didn’t know the name of the lovely lady posing nude in her socks for Yoga Journal, but thanks to a recent issue featuring Budig on the cover I can now put a name and a face to that fabulous ass.

I got a little confused, though, when I stopped starring at the ads and started reading the words in YJ’s body issue. Apparently, Kathryn Budig is considered a plus size. Okay, maybe not plus size, but she’s definitely considered bigger than the typical yoga teacher and model.

A lot of chick do Yoga because they want the tall lean ballerina body like yoga instructor Tara Stiles

But that’s just not realistic for everyone. I mean, if you’re 5’2″ yoga won’t suddenly make you 5’9″. You might feel taller because of improved posture, but you won’t actually grow. And if you have nice curvy hips and ass yoga isn’t going to suddenly make you petite. It will however improve your flexibility, your strength, and your endurance.

You gotta have wicked muscles to be able to do advanced yoga poses. Check out the photo gallery of Kathryn Budig and you’ll see what I mean.

The idea that people in the yoga community criticize Budig’s body, because it doesn’t fall into the emaciated ballerina category is fucking astounding. Now, I’m not saying one is better than the other. I love Tara Stiles as much as I love Kathryn Budig. It’s the rigid construct of female beauty that pisses me off.

Thank god, I can’t star angry for long when I’ve got Kathryn Budig’s Toesox ads to look at. And, you know, yoga to calm my mind and center me. Or something like that.
