"When I first started yoga, I was constantly distracted by how I looked and felt during class and I think that’s why a lot of people don’t try it," he said on his Kickstarter page. "People are worried they’ll look or feel stupid. In the era of Instagram profiles devoted to 'sexy yoga poses on beaches,' it's important to remember that we all look bad when we do yoga, so we should immerse ourselves in it and forget the rest."
Of the project, Jonah said it's him "taking uncomfortable photos of people in strange poses." He continued to say, "Why am I making a book of sweaty people? It's not because I'm a die-heard 'yogi' or anything."
He hopes his own distraction during yoga classes can open people's minds to the truth: no one looks wonderful while getting deep in their practice.
Of the shots the photographer took, he kept the ones that made him feel "the most uncomfortable." From strange faces to a man with his legs over his head, it doesn't look all that sexy, but they're experiencing a variety of emotions, from euphoric and aloof to being in the zone, sweating profusely.
Jonah has one week to reach his goal of $2,500, of which he has currently raised $899.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.
We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)
For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.
We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.
We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
