Ouch! OK we’re going to start this out by giving you our first “good sport” reaction: hilarious! Someone’s being cheeky here and we suppose we can find amusement in the “artistic” vision of the photographer (if that was the intention). All right, now back to YD land, this is fairly annoying! There’s so much to tell this young yogster it’s making our little yogadork brains explode!
Credit to elephantjournal for pointing out this American Apparel model’s yoga finesse, or lack thereof.
These photos are from the American Apparel site, in their latest push for the yoga market target. Oh it’s certainly grossly misaligned and gives us pains in our lumber spine just looking at the pics but 1. she’s not Twiggy, 2. No nipples or private parts on display! Nice of them to leave the mesh bodysuit out of this series, 3. No humping or soft-porn! (yes we realize it’s sad that we have to give them props for this).
We had a HUGE discussion over the morality and underlying controversies involved with yogi (and model) Tara Stiles donning the white stretchies for AA ads.
Are these new pics a yogic faux pas? Clever marketing? An attempt at realistic yogi portrayals?
What would you say to this yogi-hipster, and what would you suggest to the marketing team at AA? (other than where are the duds for dudes?!)
ps. if you can yoga in that bra you truly are gifted. if you can practice alongside someone in that bra you are the most enlightened of us all!
