Sometimes in practice, we want to see just how far we can reach. In this variation of the arm balance side plank (vasisthasana), Kate’s reach creates a satisfying side stretch. The pose showcases the open back of the Goddess Cami Workout Top by Sthenos. The form-fitting yet lightweight cami design allows the top to move with the body in a variety of yoga poses as well as other workout activities. The fashion-forward style is also suitable to pair with jeans or to wear out dancing.
Kate is wearing leggings by Prana, with this season’s trend of different color panels in a soft gray on gray that can mix and match with numerous hues. The Buddha Bracelet by Gogh Jewelry Design is one of Szilvia Gogh’s creations that infuse a sense of spirit and positivity into everyday jewelry. The Buddha Bracelet is stacked with bracelets by Five Star Hippie.
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.
