Many people can get up in arms about yoga being used to sell products. But I think that we yogis can laugh at ourselves, too. And laugh is what I did when I saw this advertisement from PEMCO, a Seattle-based insurance company. PEMCO, has brought yoga into the fold, with Type A Yoga Girl, one of five characters in their new ad campaign.
The moment the meeting ends,
she's off -- with hair in a ponytail and
a yoga mat wrapped so tightly under
her arm it'd take two downward
facing dogs to rip it away from her.
She's going to find her inner peace. So don't even consider getting in her way.
We want to know: Is there truth to this stereotype? Do you think Type A personalities are more attracted to yoga than other types? Does this ad offend you--or make you laugh?
