Vintage Yoga Part 2

Vintage Yoga Part 2

Very few people know that Marylin Monroe herself was a Yogini (or Yogi Bombshell) as it was called in 1948) here are some beautiful shots of America's most iconic Pin Up Doing Yoga.

  Dhanurasana (bow pose)

Marylin Loved Her Shoulderstands & Plow Pose 
(Sarvangasana & Halasana)

And she was fond of spontaneous Headstands (Sirsasana)

Looks Like Marylin had tight hamstrings like me 
Seated forward bend (Paschimottanasana) 

And a little core work in (Navasana) 

3  Om's  for Marilyn (wink)

Oh The 70's

 A while back my cousin and I pooled our old photo's and scanned some of each others collections.  So I am continuing the Vintage Picture Theme. What can be said of the 70's fashion except thank goodness there are over! 
Warning picture heavy.

Daddy's Side

Another Picture Heavy Post ...My Daddy's Side

I often sit and ready Vintage blogs they are my escape & kick back time, but rarely have anything even remotely "Vintage" To post about :-(
My life as a Yoga teacher doesn't offer many Vintage moments, and even when I go out it it mostly casual Levi's & Chucks kinda moments so hardly photo worthy lol.
But I recent scanned  some amazing old photo's of my Family from my cousin that I think are worth a share

Grandpa (Jack DeGraff)

Grandma Violet (DeGraff)

My Handsome Daddy (Roger Degraff)

Dad is Third From The Left
Dad Is Second From The Left

Vintage Yoga?

While Googling "Vintage Yoga" (2 of my fave things) Hoping To Find Some Outfit Ideas Decent Enough To Teach In ....I found A Wonderus Amount Of Old Photo's To Share. Since I Am Always Looking For Blog Ideas (And Because I found Soooo Much Material) I am Starting A Monthly Vintage Yoga Series. Finally Something Vintage To Blog About!

Who Better To Kick This Off Than The King Himself Enjoy!
