Take a load at this yoga dork. I have just barely covered my love for yoga in this blog, so here are some goofy photos for proof. I have up a few leg stretching poses here that I kept to a minimum for obvious reasons! The fascinator is from Many Hats Millinery and both skirt and sneakers are from my go-to affordable department store of choice: Target.

I’ve been practicing yoga and Pilates at home for a couple of years now (via Youtube! Yahoo?), and my husband and I rejoined a gym mainly for their fitness classes and sauna. I’ve been going to my gym’s yoga class for about a month now (2x per week), and one of the instructors this week recommended that I audition and train to be an instructor! I was really happy to hear that and excited to take my love for yoga to the next level. However, I learned that I had to be certified in a dozen other things (okay, maybe like 3) to be an instructor. Yikes. I’m still thinking about it! Any Les Mills/Bodyflow/AFAA/ACE certified professionals out there willing to share their experience?

In case you didn’t know who Cammy White is, she is the British character in the retro video game Street Fighter. Despite her sharing exactly my height to the half inch measurement, she also obviously has blonde hair and blue eyes, a way better body, and red accents in her outfit. An approximation of Cammy in an everyday, more feminine outfit would probably look like this, which I happen to be wearing without thinking about the character.

I’ve seen her wear various colors for her leotard and boots. I think these earthy knee high leather boots below from Gipsy Dharma would work well for a variation to Cammy’s look. I want a pair of these, perhaps with some platform? :) However, I don’t think you could climb trees and kick butt with platforms or heels, like they make it seem like in the movies.

    I was going to ask “are these yoga pants or is it a skirt?” but then I read that it is in fact a skirt! Deceitful skirt haha! But I was right about the yoga though! Everyone is telling me to try it especially for my anxiety&HCD pain but there’s still something that doesn’t “let me go” and try it! By the way, you look amazing as usual and you can really rock those sneakers!! <3 <3 <3

    I love this, and this really looks a lot like Cammy! :)

    Thank you, love! Yeah, it sort of looks like distressed skirt. I like it a lot. :) Yoga we believe has been very good to me and my husband’s overall health. It has helped his digestion (he’s been sick for almost a year now) and has also helped me with my chronic back pain. You wouldn’t think bending your back would help your back, but it did for me! I believe it will help you too, because it gives me pretty good vibes afterwards. My husband has anxiety too. I’m always in the highest of spirits while doing yoga, and when I skip it… I feel really sad! I look forward to it every time I go to class or do it at home. There is positive energy that’s being released through your body that I believe helps a lot of what people are experiencing in their bodies.

    I love those boots you posted on the bottom!
    I’m not fond of Yoga, because the original idea of it was to open up one’s spirit to the spiritual realm with demonic forces of Indian gods, but I understand you use it for exercise and not that other junk. . I just have a hard time with it since my heart yearns for healing to happen in India. Anyway, I love how you talked about making a more modest outfit in regards to Cammy! I forgot all about her. Speaking of India, I always played the Indian guy in that game with his long arms and legs. ha. I used to beat all my brothers’ college friends and make them freak out that an 8 year old crushed them. Maybe they let me win since I was a little girl though. hmmmm. Your skirt and shoes are really cute in this outfit!

    Or am I thinking of double dragon? I get my fighting games all mixed up. I think it was Street Fighter 2 though?

    Victoria,

    You mean Dhalsim? He was cool. I don’t know why my comments here disappeared, after moving from one comment system to another! Oh well. Yes, I use yoga purely for exercising and healing the body (through exercise), no gods or religion involved.
