A month ago, Kerry Washington asked her Instagram followers a question: Would they want to get their flow on with her? The response was overwhelmingly positive, because of course it was. When Kerry Washington asks you if you want more videos of Kerry Washington, the answer is always yes.
For weeks now, the actress has been taking to Instagram to show her followers how to Namaste at home. In light of the current state of the world though, the energy of her sessions has notably shifted. They've gone from focusing on how to relax during the pandemic to how to create a safe space to breathe together for Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and so many others. Washington's videos now begin with downward dog, continue with breathing exercises, and end with a conversation led by an activist about the fight for justice along with links to donate.
Yesterday, she shared a video montage of all her digital yoga sessions, which not only served as a reminder to mindfully meditate, but to maybe do so in your favorite pair of leggings. Washington's yoga outfits don't steal the show by any means but they're also impossible to ignore. And the one piece every one of her six million followers seemed to notice, while also demanding to know where they were from, was a pair of cut-out leggings by one of Michelle Obama's go-to brands, Cushnie (which is also currently on sale at Nordstrom).
Today, Washington will be going live for a yoga session at 4 p.m. PST, followed by a conversation about Pride with Laverne Cox. They'll also be using the time to raise money for the Transgender Law Center. So grab your cutest pair of leggings and join Washington and Cox from your living room to breathe, make space, and think. Unfortunately, her exact pair of Cushnie leggings won't be joining you, since they're sold out everywhere, but so many similar options are available elsewhere online. Namaste.
