That's a Wrap

Photos by Mariel
On Monday I drove up to Mariel's and was in awe of the mess we had to make in order to film in her living room. Her couches, chairs and Christmas trees were pushed out of the room, blocking the front door and crowding her kitchen. She's a trooper for letting us take over her house and film for most of the day.

Nikki met me there and let me use some of her make up. It felt so fancy to have someone doing my face for me!! I'm so glad she not only took time to shop around with me, but that she also took time to actually do my make up for me. It was fun to have her there and get some feedback from her after we filmed the first segment.

I was really nervous, but I just tried to remember to breathe. The luxury of not having to speak while doing the practices on camera was that I actually could breathe... I didn't have to worry about keeping count in my head and also keeping the dialogue straight.

We filmed a warm up first, which will be applicable to the five different sequences I created. I was so nervous about doing everything exactly as I had planned, but I realized I'm the boss of the yoga and could improvise without anyone knowing :) So I relaxed a bit and just did what felt right. I had my cue cards and a timer and managed to do almost all five practices in one take each.

It was almost three hours of yoga, and my body is in so much pain today. I woke up the day after filming and had a big head cold, so that didn't help my sore muscles. But I'm so glad it's done and it went well. Noah and Brigham were easy to work with and they're hoping to get edits done by the end of this week. Next week I head north again to do the voice overs for the sequences, so I'll get to watch my videos over and over and over... and over... and try not to be too critical. I'm sure they're great, but it's going to be weird to watch hours of footage of myself doing yoga!

When they're complete, I'll be sure to share information on how to purchase! And if they do well, we may be able to branch out and provide different styles (like prenatal, yoga for kids, etc...). This experience was a lot of hard work, but it was a lot of fun, too. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to do something like this.
