It’s not really news the yoga selfie craze has extended itself beyond mere common folk into the bubble of celebriyogidom. Former Pussy Cat Doll turned ‘X Factor’ judge Nicole Scherzinger posted this collage of beach yoga pics two days ago from her vacation in Hawaii.
First thought: Eagle pose. Interesting choice.
Second thought: It’s a fascinating (and strangely empowering) thing, this instagram machine, which affords celebrities the chance to be their very own paparazzi. Scherzinger has been snapped doing yoga on the beach before, but by snooping photogs. Perhaps this is her response in the setting, angle and wardrobe of her choosing?
Whether it’s narcissism, extrovertedness, pride, confidence, or a lack thereof, or whatever makes you want to post pics of yourself for the public to praise or ridicule as they wish, we give you props with a caveat: no photo will ever truly capture your yoga, because yoga is a constantly flowing, living, breathing, evolving thing and it’s always in the present. That pic of the pose is only one moment in time, and of who you (and your yoga) were before. Not now. Or now…or…*
