Yoga in Vanity Fair



Take a look at these gorgeous yoga images in Vanity Fair. Definitely puts me in the move to do...stuff. :)

I jumped in a Level 1 class last night and it was pretty refreshing. I'm not the type to say "I'm too good for a level 1 class!" because a practice is a practice. The numbers mean nothing to me as long as I get to move. I like taking, I hate to say "easier" class but maybe a less challenging class every now and then because it tunes me back in to some of the basics. Sometimes I'll let one hip drop in Warrior 1 because I'm not thinking about my hips, little things like that I'm reminded of.

There were a lot of people in class last night too. Usually the classes I take are 8-10 folks but I like being in a room that's tight with yogis with the same intention as you. It's a good vibe. Tonight is my regular L2 class with my zany instructor, who knows what she'll have us do.

Thanks for sharing the photos gorgeous, they were beautiful :-) Sounds like you're having some great yogi fun and just taking it as it comes!

I was very glad to see people like Desikachar and his son, among others, instead of the usual airbrushed young, skinny, tight abs and butts, yogis and yoginis that one sees now in magazines like YogaFit and yes, Yoga Journal.

as an ageless yogini who has been around the sun over 50 times already -- and my birthday is tomorrow by the way :) -- I want to see more pics of yogis and yoginis in MY age group, and older!

Thank you Marilyn.
I agree with Linda: it is so nice to see a broader range of yogis. Now maybe they will get to showing some people who look like me, or for that matter, my mom, as a regular thing in the yoga media. That would be comforting. (Not sure how you look, so I don't know if you feel represented, hee hee!)

Ooh, thanks, Marilyn- they were beautiful. I loved the one of Gurmukh... she is an inspiration...
