"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.
