THE Equinox Yoga Video

This beautiful, stylish, motivating, inspiring light  (I can go on and on) video of Equinox has steered the yoga community. Oversexualising yoga, objectifying women, shifting the focus from and to – it is amazing how yoga people (and yoga teaches non-judgement by the way) can get judgmental. I am leaving my personal musings for another post and another time since I came across a good article and interview with this  beautiful yogini, Briohny Smith, made by Kathryn Budig, who had been also accused of it all. Not much to add: just don’t judge.

  1. It’s quite provocative. 🙂 I can see why the critics can be judgmental about it. But depending on who looks at this video, you can get mixed reviews. As far as men’s observation concerned: one guy may see the sexiness of the lady and may imagine how wonderful it would be to make love to her—I would put majority of us men in this category lol sex is the inevitable thing that comes to many men’s mind the moment they see charming half-naked women doing spellbinding yoga styles; few other men may appreciate her beauty and how she is in control of her body, especially if they are artistic ones, insert writers, photographers, painters, etc; other group of men may see it just as a morning out of the bed exercise, that they wish their wives could also do such thing so that she never complains about stress and physical pains, etic. And as for women and gay men, I don’t know what they would say since am neither of the two. 😛 Just my three cents. 😉

    Nice video I say. 🙂

    • Not that provocative and I still say tasteful… Truth be told, non-provocative things simply stay unnoticed. I totally agree with you that it depends on who’s looking and there may be tons to different opinions, pretty much like about anything else. Thank you very much for commenting and I’m loving your second comment! 🙂 not publishing it so we call stay non-judgmental 🙂

      • lol @not publishing the second comment. that’s funny.

        I agree the video is tasteful. 😀 But then again its tastefulness depends on who’s looking at it from what perspective. 😉
