Some of the best poses to counteract our habits of too much time sitting are lunges, including crescent pose variations since they stretch muscles such as the quadriceps and hip flexors. In this slight backbending variation, Ellette is wearing a jacket by Buddhaful. This LA-based clothing company is known for their festival-friendly layering pieces that perpetuate the ethos of positivity through art, music, and practice. The Crop Jacket is part of Buddhaful’s Frequency collection. The fit allows the jacket to move with the body with ease and the graphic on the black on black jacket represents love.
Ellette’s bra and leggings are made by entrepreneur, avid meditator, and yogi Russell Simmons’ new line Tantris. Clothing will be on display at the upcoming studio opening in West Hollywood in Fall, 2016. To cushion her back knee in the pose, Ellette is utilizing Yoga Rat’s comfy Rat Pad.
