Yoga Has Never Been This Sexy
IF you've got a thing for Star Wars nerds...
Bonafide Star Wars nerd Matthew Latkiewicz posted a series of Star Wars inspired yoga poses on his site You Will Not Believe last year. The poses were picked up by Wired UK for this summer's July 2010 issue.
From the magazine:
"Contemplating the names of yoga poses led Matthew Latkiewicz, a lifelong Star Wars nerd, to create his own Lucasfilm-themed postures. He posted pics of himself performing some of them, including the TIE Fighter, and the Half I Am Your Father, to his blog, framed as missives to Lucas from the marketing dept.
'I loved the idea of someone pitching him branded yoga,' he says. 'There's mysticism to the films -- a lot of Jedi/yogi overlap -- so it sounds plausible. Which makes it even funnier.' His yoga is based on the original trilogy but Latkiewicz says he might create some prequel-inspired poses. 'I'd call one 'The Disappointed Fanboy'.'"
