This Week In YogaPop: The Model Meltdown
If you look closely, yoga is everywhere, in every thing, within all the glorious details. Last night, in the most spiritual show on television — uh, America’s Next Top Model, of course — Child’s Pose had a cameo. You can stop squealing now. I know, I know, Balasana is uber famous…and yet so down to earth!
Even (girls still in the running to become America’s Next) Top Models Take Child’s Pose:
Step 1. Model meltdown. Yoga Variations: Sobasana, Sniffleasana, and Freakoutasana.
Step 2. Model takes flight. Yoga Pose: Bakasana/Crow.
Step 3. Model melts into Child’s Pose. The world is full of sunshine, Tyra’s unintelligible made-up modeling tip-rants, and Miss J’s fierceness once again. This is the power of Balasana.
Do you have what it takes to become America’s Next Top Yogini? We’re accepting applications for Season 1 of ANTY — where we throw 12 aspiring yoginis together into a yurt. No deodorant, epic cat/cow fights, and 12 weeks of torturously awkward yoga poses you’ve never heard of. This. Is. ANTY. Stay tuned.
