Pro-Athlete Yogis Go Nude in ESPN's 2011 Body Issue

ESPN's annual 'Body Issue' recently came out, in which a number of professional athletes stripped down and posed naked. What's interesting about this year's group is that there are two yogis in the bunch -- and in an interesting twist, the issue inspired a nude Lululemon yoga ad.

But first... the professional athlete yogis!

Pro soccer star and yogi, Hope Solo, tells Nike about her yoga practice:

Whatever type of yoga she's practicing, it's working!

Pro snowboarder, yogi, and Marianne Williamson fan, Gretchen Bleiler bares all as well:

In an interesting twist, Vancouver Canucks hockey star, Ryan Kesler, also posed nude for the issue, and inspired a nude Lululemon ad. In a move of solidarity, Lululemon put out the below ad in which fellow Canadian and Lululemon ambassador, Jenn Thiel, bared all in the same exact pose. Yogis are loyal, too!
