Not saying you asked for it. But…
After the hubbahubba of the original sexy underwear video which has by now received over 4.1 million views, here’s another Equinox sponsored skivvied yogi video featuring previous underwear yoga star Briohny Smyth, this time wearing a bit more material and this time with her hubs, Dice Iida-Klein, also an Equinox yoga teacher. Hear that fellas? She’s taken.
To put it in a nutshell, Equinox is pushing these two as “Yoga’s hottest couple” which explains the choice to eschew most of their clothing and use that filtered, semi-slo mo camera effect a la Victoria’s Secret or Calvin Klein perfume commercial, because it’s just too darn hot to wear clothes and move any faster than a sexy slither! Though, to be fair, it’s like watching Little House on the Prairie considering typical Equinox ads look like this and this.
According to the yoga lovebirds, this partner practice is not about eroticism and/or foreplay (or marketing?), it’s about the intimacy of trust and balance, and is a comment on the strength and foundation of their relationship, you see. In other words, Briohny is a control freak and Dice takes pleasure in being the man, er rock.
I could do all of these poses on my own, but I’ve never been very good at trusting people, which is something that most of us women gain over time — especially when it comes to men. It was a real challenge for both of us to go from singular practices, where we had full control, and release control to one another. It was a really big thing for me because I was a single mom, and I had built my own businesses, so it has always been about having two hands on the wheel. When you’re on top in Acro Yoga, it’s all about letting go and trusting one hundred percent, because if you fight back, it’s much harder for the base. So, Dice and I went through a lot of little tiffs of, “You’re doing it wrong — No you’re doing it wrong!” and every single time it always came down to me letting go. And for Dice, who has always had a tough time expressing himself, he had to work really hard to master his duty as a base, because he has to be extremely communicative and tell me what he needs and what he needs from me. So for both of us, it was just the balancing act-balancing not only our bodies, but also our personality issues.
Dice confirms her control issues and how it’s manly to be on bottom. ahem:
I definitely think what Bri said is very true. I mean, it’s learning how to balance each other’s personalities. I would say Bri is a little more of a control freak than I am, but when it comes to being flown, she has to give up control, and I have to take over, and for me it’s very gratifying to be the foundation. It’s kind of like I’m the rock, and I think that’s how I feel with this family [Briohny and her daughter] away from Acro Yoga. I’m learning my place as being the man of the household, and I’m learning for me it’s not about directing anybody. It’s more or less the stronger I am, the stronger they’ll be. Just by standing tall, I think everything else just falls into place.
Anyway, the video is already blowing up the Youtube machine. We admit, there is a certain intrigue to the interplay, even if one could consider it acro yoga(?) porn. At least one thing’s for certain, we can’t wait for the parody!
