It is time to send some love out to my other yoga instructor Lara Estrada. She come in to my office twice a week to teach me and my wife. She has a great friendly style that works well both for new student as well as those trying to push their boundaries. Recently she gave an great interview with More Than My Skin on living with vitiligo and overcoming inconsiderate people to find her own peace and happiness. It so happened that the interview was read by musician John Legend’s producers and subsequently they invited her to appear in his new music video “You and I’. The video premiered yesterday, and Lara appears 37 seconds in, followed by many other women of all shapes, sizes, and colors including transgender icon Laverne Cox. For a change, this is a music video with no pole dancing or twerking. This song is about loving yourself no matter what other people say or think and is part of a larger campaign for women’s charities called #OPERATIONGIRL.
Way to go Lara! Beautiful message, beautiful video!
