They respect their legs for helping them hold that warrior one pose.
Women who practice yoga reported higher levels of satisfaction with their bodies, a lower likelihood of self-objectification and fewer eating disorders than women who do aerobic exercise or none at all, found Jennifer J. Daubenmier, a social psychologist who studies mind-body health approaches. This probably has a lot to with how yoga cultivates an awareness and appreciation of different body parts, Daubenmier explained (think of an instructor urging you to "feel your legs anchoring you to the earth"). Also helpful: yogic breathing, which demands that you not only relax your belly but also fill it with air.
