The BEAUTIFUL human body

Today I came across a youtube video (called "The Contortionist") that made me say "holy s***" repeatedly throughout the entire video (in a good way). It features a yoga instructor from Equinox named Briohny Smyth, going through a series of yoga poses. Not only is she insanely talented, but when I watched the video, the following thought resonated: The human body is absolutely beautiful. We have the power to do so much if we take care of ourselves!Apparently the video has gotten quite a bit of feedback. Some people are appalled by her lack of clothing, others (to no surprise, men) are quite thrilled, and lot of people are a big fan of her yoga talents (obviously). Others are giving kudos to Equinox for a damn good marketing campaign.

A lot of attention has also been drawn to the song that's played during the sequence, "Midnight" by Dstllry Music. I think it's pretty awesome, and was also intrigued by Briohny's playlist featured on the Equinox site.
In conclusion, all I have to say is: YOU GO, GIRL!


  1. Wow. Very cool. Hubby just joined Haute Yoga. It's supposed to make you lean and ripped...and sweat a lot.

    1. It is truly amazing how talented (and in shape) that woman is! I love that video a lot. I got a hot yoga groupon a while ago for Bikram yoga in Fremont that I hope to use soon :). An old instructor of mine is one of the key players at Haute Yoga in Queen Anne. I haven't been there but I'm sure it's great!

  2. I am so INSPIRED to get on my mat now. 2012 - The year of yoga!
