Yoga and Flamenco for Every/body & Mindful Book Reviews By Eve


Leave a comment

Yoga is all about balancing the push and pull of poses, of life. When your arms are extended up, you must feel the pull of the earth below. Flamenco has that same feeling of elasticity. Nothing goes forward without being pushed back, nothing rises without being pushed down, everything is expressed with hardness and softness. The looks of a flamenco dancer are both ugly and beautiful. Jolie laide is slangy French for someone whose beauty draws you in even as their ugliness repels you.

jolie laide (plural jolies laides)

Definition: noun; unconventionally good-looking woman: a woman whose facial features are not pretty in conventional terms, but nevertheless have a distinctive harmony or charm.
