Ahead Of Summer, Revisit Luba Shumeyko’s Viral Nude Yoga Shoot
A classic from the archives.
October 18, 2016

We’re smack bang in the middle of October, which means that everybody is Australia is amping themselves for the incoming summer.

Gym memberships are skyrocketing, people are putting down the darts and actually getting active in their activewear. Part of that routine might involve a little yoga, and why not? There’s nothing like a little body-bending to achieve peace of mind, and that’s something recognised by Luba Shumeyko. The Ukranian yoga instructor featured in this very minimalist, very nude yoga shoot a few years back, with her husband Petter Hegre behind the lens. Oh yeah, Petter just happens to be an erotic photographer.

The couple were clearly surprised at just how far their shoot spread, as discussed in this interview with Elle where they said “we posted the photos on our website and suddenly they are all over Internet— but with wrong titles like ‘sexy yoga.’ During that photo shoot, sex was the last thing I was thinking about.” The shoot got a little nudge from Acclaim Magazine a few days ago and reminded us that this exists – so why not pay it a revisit?

The pictures speak for themselves, so see Luba in action below – this might be just the right amount of motivation you need to sign up to that yoga class:
