Yoga in the most unlikely of places.
Posted on December 01 2012
CYoga asked me to join her for a photoshoot she was doing for her new book. I obviously jumped at the chance, especially when I heard that it was going to be taking place down at the Skatepark in Southbank. London Skateparks calls Southbank "the beating heart of London Skateboarding" & it certainly didn't disappoint - the graffiti is incredible! I chose to wear my Red Marzipants as I thought they'd look brilliant against the colourful background. Catherine wore some amazing outfits, my favourite being a little black jumpsuit with 6 inch heels (yes ladies, she can do yoga poses in shoes most of us can't even walk in!). Catherine and I started doing some yoga postures & within a few minutes we'd attracted quite a crowd on onlookers, it tuns out it's not every day that you get girls doing headstands against skate ramps & balancing on ledges. The photographer had us doing all kinds of brilliant poses. At one point Catherine was doing the crow, whilst balancing on a skateboard - no easy thing, especially with the skaters wooshing past us. As I was leaving a young boy asked me if my trousers were just yoga pants or if they could be used for skating too. I told him they were Marzipants & could be used for anything; skate pants, yoga pants, beach wear, lounging pants, going out trousers..... I was reeling off a long list when he cut me short. "Can they make you fly?" he asked, absolutely dead-pan. "Ummmmmm......... Absolutely!" How on earth do you answer that one?! Catherine's new book will be out early next year. Sending a big thank you to Rod for the great photos!
