Hi there, sporty mamas. Who isn’t a fan of green camo? Camouflage or “camo” started out as an edgy take on military wear and has become a fashion classic. And like leopard print, it never goes out of style. This past summer, I’ve been living in my green camo pants and matching bra from Onzie yoga wear. I’ve worn the leggings and bra for yoga (including some beach yoga on the island on Antiparos, Greece while on a special couples vacation with Marc) and during the day as casual, summer wear. The outfit came in particularly handy as I needed something cool and comfortable for sight-seeing in oh-so-hot Athens! I popped a transparent white shirt with long sleeves on top of the outfit you see here and off I went, cool yet covered head to toe from the sun.
Now, for a little yoga talk. Here I am attempting extended side angle pose in my green camo outfit. Extended side angle pose or Utthita Parsvakonasana involves many muscle groups: your legs, abs, ankles, groin, chest, shoulders, and upper back.
To execute the pose, step your feet apart and raise your arms parallel to the floor with your palms facing down. Point your arms out to the sides, holding them firm, with your shoulder blades wide. Turn your left foot in slightly to the right and your right foot out to the 90 degrees. Exhale and bend your right knee over your right ankle, settling in as much as possible and deepening the bend to make your muscles work all the more.
Extend your left arm straight up, then turn the left palm to face toward your head and with an inhalation reach the arm over the back of your left ear, palm facing the floor. Stretch all the way from your heel to your fingertips lengthening the entire side of your body, trying to create as much length as possible.
With all the hard work of yoga behind me, it was time to gaze off into the blue deep waters of the Greek Isles. Look how pretty the back of Onzie’s Chic Bra looks? The straps add a little pizzazz while being thick enough to remain super comfortable.
Here’s another photo from our little cabana by the way. Man does that place seem far away as I ready myself for a busy school year!
