While yoga is an individual practice, sharing a class with other people can be a powerful motivator and a fun community building event. Here, Kate and Ellette match poses and outfits in a variation of King Pigeon Pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana). They are both wearing the new Loving Bra by Electric Yoga. One of the places to buy Electric Yoga in LA is at fashion designer Michele Boubot’s Namastday Yoga Studio in Beverly Hills.
Kate and Ellette paired the Loving Bra with pants by Bohemian Island. The Thai company’s harem pants are comfortable enough to live in and perfect to practice in. Bohemian Island’s pants are hand-stiched with a noticeable attention to detail and 10% of proceeds support the Soi Dog Foundation on Phuket, an organization who looks after 1,000 stray dogs and cats and advocates for animal adoption.
Felicia Tomasko has spent more of her life practicing Yoga and Ayurveda than not. She first became introduced to the teachings through the writings of the Transcendentalists, through meditation, and using asana to cross-train for her practice of cross-country running. Between beginning her commitment to Yoga and Ayurveda and today, she earned degrees in environmental biology and anthropology and nursing, and certifications in the practice and teaching of yoga, yoga therapy, and Ayurveda while working in fields including cognitive neuroscience and plant biochemistry. Her commitment to writing is at least as long as her commitment to yoga. Working on everything related to the written word from newspapers to magazines to websites to books, Felicia has been writing and editing professionally since college. In order to feel like a teenager again, Felicia has pulled out her running shoes for regular interval sessions throughout Southern California. Since the very first issue of LA YOGA, Felicia has been part of the team and the growth and development of the Bliss Network.
