Namaskar Everyone,

Well this conversation has spun in a slightly different direction. I'm not sure that Jopis meant it the way you interpreted his statement, but there is something worth mentioning. Some people judge Yoga teachers stricly by the way they dress. This is a big mistake and deception.

I know this is wrong, but if you want to play the part of a swami, an orange robe will help. Most people judge a book by it's cover. You don't even have to be a good Yoga teacher if you are sporting an orange robe and throw a little Sanskrit around to play the part.

This doesn't mean that every Yoga teacher that wears robes is a fake. But it is worth mentioning that there are many good Yoga instructors who dress functionally. Lilias Folan is very real and down to earth. She wears clothes which are comfortable and work for Yoga. Paul Jerard dresses in sports casual wear.

If you spend any length of time talking to either of them, they are encyclopedias of Yoga knowledge. So, be extremely careful not to judge a Yoga instructor by the clothes on their back.
