Bad Yogi: Why Do We Do This?

I’m so excited and nervous about this video! We tried about 3 different ways of filming it and nothing felt quite right until YOU were a part of it. Once we got your videos in, we put it all together and everybody teared up at the end when they watched it at Bad Yogi HQ, so I really really hope you love it just as much! πŸ™‚

This is the FIRST EVER video like this, where we actually got to incorporate the Bad Yogi Community. Every time we do a video or something where I talk about BY, it always feels incomplete until I talk about this incredible community we have together, so this one is really special.

Okay okay okay, enough talking about it!!! Let’s watch this! Grab a tissue, just in case! πŸ˜‰ And please share with your friends if you like it, it would mean a lot to me!

    The video is amazing! I can’t believe the negative comments at the beginning…..but I do love how they stand in such stark contrast to comments of the many who appreciate this community. I’ve just become familiar with Bad Yogi in the last few months and am so appreciative of the idea and community. Thank you to all those involved πŸ™‚

    I only practice yoga a few times a month so perhaps I’m wrong but it was my impression that yogis were supposed to be uplifting and have positive attitudes. The remarks in the video were so vicious and cruel that I can’t believe any of them know what being a true yogi is. I love coming here and receiving instruction from someone with so much joy and acceptance of anyone willing to make an effort. Thank you Erin for being such a wonderful instructor!

    This is such a touching video Erin! I always snigger to myself when I see the hateful comments of those completely missing one of the main points of yoga; being kind!

    Got chills at the ending. Erin you are a yogi badass and a BEAUTIFUL one at that! So sad to see all of these poor hateful souls. What a waste of life to be so negative. Keep doing your thang girl! THIS community surely appreciates you.

    Erin, you are an inspiration to me. As a yoga teacher, I have always welcomed all shapes and sizes and all levels of ability into my classes. What you showed me has been that I don’t have to be soooo serious all the time. I now approach my classes with a light heart and humor and people have been responding to that attitude. Thank you so much for what you show us constantly. Please don’t ever stop inspiring us.

    This sounds so cliche but remember that what people say about you is really more a reflection of them! Since when is makeup required to share yoga??

    Omg. Lemme grab this box of tissues right here… This is an amazingly powerful positive message, Erin. I was always intimidated by yoga classes and even felt inadequate while following certain videos in my own home! I would literally feel worse about my body afterwards. You are so real, genuine and RELATEABLE! Haters always gonna hate but the Bad Yogi movement is here to stay people!

    Erin, you are awesome! I discovered one of your yoga videos on youtube by chance and they changed my life. They motivate me to take those 10, 20, 30 minutes, to move my body, calm and slow down, breathe deeply and feel so much better every day. I am ever so grateful! I only have love to give and the best of wishes!
