I do vinyasa yoga regularly, and I've done ashtanga a few times. If I'm not mistaken, ashtanga is just about progressing through different "series" (sun salutations, then the "primary" series; if it's an advanced class, then maybe some back bends, maybe some crazy legs-over-the-head stuff, maybe some other insane flexible-people shit). You also do a bunch of different locks (think feet behind the head). Ashtanga usually means "really fucking difficult" if you are neither flexible nor used to yoga. Of course, that's just my experience with it, and I don't know what all the names mean exactly either. I've done stuff like this before (see the picture below) and it practically broke me for about four days afterward.

It's also funny being home for break and being the youngest person at this studio I found nearby. All these young to middle-aged moms come in talking about their kids, and then once the class begins they just kick my ass doing standing splits and other crazy stuff.

Well this past semester was my first intro to yoga—I just signed up for a p.e. class called "power yoga." What got me really into doing it regularly though has to do with the fact that the instructor for this class also teaches at a studio near my university. He told us that if we ever wanted to make up a class, or if we just wanted to come in for free yoga, we could drop in during his classes at the studio whenever. So depending on when I went in, he'd be teaching a different class (Thursday afternoons was "intermediate," Friday afternoons was the really fucking difficult one). So yeah, I'd just go in one of those two days for an extra class each week. smile.gif

MM, do you go to school in Boston? A a friend of mine gave me some free passes to a place called Back Bay Yoga and it looks good, but it's a bit out of the way for me. I might go there once or twice just to check it out, but if it's not worth it for me to go there then maybe you'd like the passes?

Then he added that the only difference was that these were made in Japan rather than Italy. And after a pause... "and they are yellow." He is a serious designer, no doubt. And he knows all about the difference concepts, etc... but at the end of the day, he realizes that clothes are for wearing, and really, for fun. And sometimes, you want to express yourself through clothes. And sometimes, that expressions is just plain "I'm having a good time here." Also, we both joked that I was probably a size 4, or even a 5, for most of his designs, and that he was decidedly a 5 "when they even fit me". Maybe when he was 16, he was moping around being all gothy. But it doesn''t seem the case now, either in his clothes (which have terrific treatments and are very well thought out, especially the outerwear), or his manner.

Haha, this is a great story. I've never spoken to Jun but lots of people told me his very friendly, as well. I would love to see an interview with him!

Also, I really like this way of thinking about clothing ... at the same time, is wjk really that ponderous? Is dark clothing inherently ponderous? (I guess he would know about wjk, at least.) I would like to think that it's possible to wear this dark stuff without being pretentious about it. I wear black because I look good in it biggrin.gif

"and they are yellow" hahaha

Aha, it's not really disapproval, it's just not something I'm interested in wearing. But I do take an interest from afar.

The girl that gave me the passes told me she went to a hip-hop/pop yoga class and that she was doing yoga poses to Frank Ocean. Then I knew I might want to check the place out for the sheer novelty of it.
