I like to do yoga. I find it invigorating. I am not into the hairi-khrishna/organic/vegetarian/hippie/smoked-to-much-dope in-the-60/70/80/90’s, dude aspect of it. I just like yoga. Once in a while I will pick up a Yoga magazine to pass the time and to amuse myself.
The question that always hits me is *What’s the deal with the swami’s (or is it swamii?) beard?
Primarily in the advertising section in the back there will be a handful of scary looking, shell shocked, emaciated looked guys with these really bad looking ZZ TOP beards. Come visit their little posh compound for a journey to self realization blah blah blah… these guys are freaky looking…
I’ve never been able to find an exact reason (if there is one) why yogi’s/swami’s/whatever grow their beards like this. ( all the cool yoga video guys are clean shaven, because frankly, long beard like that do not intice customers to buy the product.)
Anyone have any ideas.
