Artful Living

yoga flow

Yesterday was the first morning yoga class after a summer hiatus. The class is right in my neighborhood which makes it incredibly easy to attend and I adore our teacher. Yoga is;

a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation.

As “Saufung” was adjusting me in a posture, I realized how much I missed her over the summer and her beads. She is always wearing some sort of lovely necklace which radiates joy and sparkle. Yesterday’s class, the lesson was to let go in a posture of what you are holding onto – and to find the force of the “flow.” It sort of made no sense until I got home and then had an “aha” moment.

I am not the only one who loves finding the creative force through the discipline of yoga, sparkle gems and groovy beads.
I remembered the artwork I had done for another yoga devotee who found the force of the flow of yoga which gave her creative business a focus.

A few years ago, this lovely lady asked me to illustrate her “story” to use on her site and on some mailing brochures. Yoga was the force that gave Margaret the inspiration to create “Bhati Beads.”
Take a look at her site and you will love her beads, silk wraps, prayer boxes and laid back sexy stuff which have graced the cover(s) of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Bhati Bead silk wraps come in an array of yummy colors.
Look at her arm, adorned in Bhati Beads,as seen on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

This was the “final” artwork used on her about page.
Do you have an about page?
What would it say about you and your story? Is there a discipline that you practice that you honor?
Has the discipline of yoga or another forceful flow helped you to find your creative focus?
Love to hear all about your story!
