    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I’ve just started working this pose, and your step-by-step has shown me I DO have the strength to do it!!!

    OK…….OUCH!!!!! This is a new one for me….I’ve done all the steps previously with the exception of the final 2 poses…….so I like a challenge. Well, I’m out of breath and I only got the left half of my butt off the ground and now my left leg feels a bit pulled…….I should do the other side so I’m balanced, but will pass for now…..will try again in the future.

    Awesome! I know the topic was about the asana, but I am soo thankful that you addressed the ToeSox ad. When I first saw it, I thought it was brilliant… Loved the creativity and rawness! Then it somehow turned into an internet debate. :( So I was happy to read your thoughts going into this photo shoot. :) Love it!

    Sorry, but I hate the toe sox ads. You look great and all but to say “I channeled the depths of my asana practice, my sacred feminine, and my soul”?? Because, seriously, at the end of the day its an ad selling stuff with a naked women, just like so much marketing today.

    That ToeSox ad inspired me to try this pose because you looked so beautiful and strong. It was a pose I had never been exposed to in any class. I put my leg over my shoulder, pushed down, lifted up and I could do it! Thank you.

    As a yogi, I loved the ToeSox Ads. I feel the ads cut to the heart what yoga’s existential goals really are. It was was not pornographic any more that the Statue of David or the Sistine Chapel Ceiling. Anyone who views them that way is just missing the biggest point. The ToeSox themselves feed the idea of the “infinite” and freedom from the limited boundaries of a yoga mat. I now have 2 pairs of them and use them regularly as I travel.

    Existential socks? Seriously? The ads may not be pornographic, but that doesn’t make them good either. Just more stuff in the world being marketed by naked chics. Oh yoga. Et tu brute?

    Well christopher, I’d rather see a nice naked chic advertising yoga socks than the other 99% of the “Marketing Rubbish” that we have to endure on TV, Billboards, Cinemas, Mags, Newspapers, Political Speeches etc. – need I go on !

    The ads are a great conversation starter and inspire non yoga oriented people to check out YJ. It’s all good!
    Love this posture, so graceful.
