Yoga candy! For simply no other reason than your viewing pleasure (and historical context?) here is Marilyn Monroe, from 1948, yoga posing. These photos, some of which were featured in LIFE mag, have been floating around for a while (obviously, they’re from over 5 decades ago!) but we thought it only fitting to add Miss Marilyn to the Hall of Celebriyogis.
“Marilyn Monroe’s latest kick is yogi [sic],” wrote Walter Winchell in 1956. “To improve her legs, she says.”

Thanks to the latest NYTimes article on posers for alerting us.
