Confessions of a Boho Fashionista: Shine Bright

TDFW13shootLondonWEBREZ236Hey Boho Beauties,

Have you ever been to a power flow yoga class? Some of the power flow vinyasa classes I’ve sweat my boho brains out in have been seriously wild—but I can’t say I’ve always felt that way. In fact I used to avoid them like it was nobody’s business.

When I first really got into taking yoga classes, I lived in a big city where power flow classes were totally cool. People would line up in sub zero temps just to take a class from the most popular instructor in the city. She was tall, fit and she made everyone feel like her studio was their home.

She’d tell you to downdog, jump back and crow with an easy voice, as if she were asking you to grab a glass of sweet apple tea and join her to hang out. For weeks I’d show up to her classes and chill in the back row, wondering if I’d ever get this right.

Then one night, a different instructor was teaching the dreaded 8 p.m. powerflow.

We flowed and flipped our dog, we wild-thinged and hung upside down. As I pushed through beads of sweat, my eyes met a familiar face in the mirrors, there was my favorite instructor taking class right next to me. She held the postures like a mythic goddess, effortlessly smiling her way through each one. She literally shone.

After class she stood at the front desk getting ready to teach.

“How do you do it?” I asked her.

“What do you mean?” She said.

 “You make it look so easy.”

“Oh, it’s not easy! I just make it feel easy—and then it is. You can do it too, you know. “ She winked at me and popped off to teach her class.

Remember, Boho Beauties that you can make it easy and shine bright too.

 

Peace, Love and Magic from Bohemia xx
