I took yoga during college for 2 semesters, but the only poses I can remember doing from here are the "v sit" and the "bow pose."
With the gift certificate, I would buy some exercise gear since my transfer college has free access to the gym for students. Although, since I'm not on twitter, I might be cut out of this contest.
Good Luck to all of the entries.

Gabbi said...

Amazing giveaway and wonderful yoga inspired post dearest CC! Must confess, I've never tried yoga, only pilates. But my good friend has been trying to get me to go to a hot yoga class with him for some time and now I just might do it. Those arm balance poses are mind blowing by the way... much respect for my favorite CC.♥

Juliet said...

No I think I should do yoga if it makes me look as good! :D

Couture Millinery Atelier. said...

I think you have such an amazing profession! I love yoga, but still chikening out of taking pilates. I hear is the most difficult class there is in the field of fitness. I loved absolutely every picture, but my most favorite is Vogue cover with C.Tarlington. Thank you for this amazing post especially since I started my morning with deliberating on if I should attend my yoga class this evening:-))).
P.S. Dear Carrie, the winners of the Contest are announced!:-)))I would love to send you a box of Godiva chocolates to thank you for being so great and fabulous. Please, e-mail me your shipping address to info@anyacaliendo.com :-)))Hope you will enjoy it!

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

I am now following them on Twitter (@cooldads). I would buy a new golf bag because mine is old and out of style (style is something CC knows a lot about!).

Cathy Voyage said...

Amazing, I should really try that once!

Kristin said...

I haven't taken yoga since college but I've been thinking that I need to get back into it. My flexibility is all but gone. The only poses that are remember are downward facing dog and child's pose (my fav). Ah ha

Imogen said...

How very creative. I like this post.

meraldia said...

So cool!

Anika said...

Wow, CC, I'm more than impressed you are a yoga instructor. I love yoga but am too impatient and don't have enough time to do it...so have to resort to a crazy insane workout in the shortest time possible. I'd love to do yoga. And be more limber too :)

Love the pics too.....these are some crazy poses....incredible!

Hope you're having a great week bella

kpeach said...

this is so cute, I can't believe you found all of these!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

These are such FUN photos! I love them. I'm not too familiar with yoga (shame on me...I'm half Indian) so I can't name any of these for you. Lol. I had no idea how many yoga poses were incorporated into fashion editorials. That's pretty cool.

Hmmm...with my gift certificate I would buy a really fab tent. My boyfriend and I have wanted to go camping for AGES but cannot afford a decent tent. It's so sad.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I'm following them on Twitter now too. I'm Jenniferb02.

Halie said...

Great post and giveaway! I would definitely buy some fabulous running shoes to get me motivated to work out, haha. The Nike Women's Air Max Torch+ 5 shoes are perfeccttt! {http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3727636&cp=2367438.2367454.2866814.2866816.2879033}
