  • Styling Yoga Outfits – Back To Black

    Posted on September 1, 2013 by in Style


    Once again visiting her extensive wardrobe of outfits for yoga teachers, style-guru Rosalind Widdowson has put together more stunning  looks for Shibumi Studios clients (sizes 6-12).  These dance, pilates and asana outfits should help you to explore your creative spirit.  Yogini Sally Hill kindly again and again has given her time (and learns to wave it all about and tango it up) to showcase a range of looks celebrating Black which is associated with both death and rebirth.  Photography, (and every other useful ancilliary service) and post-production by Swami Tantramurti.
