Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
Two things I love in life… yoga and art.
The above quote by Thomas Merton rings very true to me. When I'm completely immersed in a sequence, a flow, a progression of poses and just feeling the rhythm of my own breath… I always likened it to losing myself in a beautiful painting or just being alive and gazing mesmerized at a mural.
At the same time, my asana practice just brings me back to who I am. Clarity… being in a lucid state of profound consciousness. Art in that same way is an ultimate form of expression and applying who you are in a creative way to facilitate emotional power.
When you're in an asana and breathing… you become art. When you see your body and the life you live as a conscious way of bringing forth beauty into your life and those of others… you are yoga.
If I'm doing it, I'll be talking about it. Yoga chatter & more.
