  • Styling Yoga Outfits – Whiter Shade of Pale

    Posted on September 19, 2013 by in Uncategorized


    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 is now very nearly a samurai!) to showcase a range of looks celebrating White which is associated with both death and virginity (work that one out).  Photography, (and every other useful ancilliary service, as usual) and post-production by Swami Tantramurti.

    Absolutely loved styling this beautiful selection of clothes a really enjoyable session and I really love working with Ros and Tantro on this website. Such wonderful and beautiful people, a very harmonious, tranquil environment. I feel blessed to have been part of this project. It has certainly helped me to develop my yoga also.

      Hi Kelly, thanks for your interest in our fashion work and your enquiry. We didn’t actually intend to sell any of these rather special outfits, simply show them off as examples of the way we might dress yoginis who wished to come to Shibumi Studios to have photographs. However Ros is delighted to know that someone out there appreciates her fashion/style artistry. If you have a moment perhaps you would be kind enough to write a comment on one of the collections. I don’t know where in the world you live but if you ever care to visit, we’d be pleased to meet you. Kindest regards, Tantro (Hi-Ki YOga – the Way of Shibumi)
