105 Degrees in December in Missoula

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Right about now if you reside in the northern latitudes and are experiencing winter, you’re probably starting to dream about those warm summer breezes and perhaps a nice sandy beach. Well, you can save some dollars on travel and get those warm temps in the north country while doing something good for your body and mind. It’s true…we found a place where it feels like a wonderful hot summer day. And it’s here in the Rocky Mountains in December in Missoula, Montana. We did what might be considered the hottest shoot of our careers this past week and by hottest we mean temperature-wise. As the Spark team are also yoga practitioners, we were thrilled at the opportunity to work with Bikram Yoga Missoula for a commercial shoot.

The shoot went great and our actors were quite the troopers as they did pose after pose so we could capture the perfect shot. And when we say actors, we mean actual yoga students. No these were not professional actors, but everyday people practicing yoga at all levels. It was almost like watching testimonials being performed as each “actor” has their own story why they started doing yoga. Some to get in better shape, some as a stress reliever, some for physical therapy, some for flexibility, some for body detoxing….the list goes on and on. But one thing for sure was that all were there to do something positive for themselves. There’s something to be said about that. Maybe yoga isn’t for everyone, but doing something positive for your mind and body should be for everyone. What positive thing will you do for yourself?
