I've always loved yoga. In my youth I was very flexible and was doing yoga moves without knowing it. I'm no longer THAT flexible but I'm pretty good for a gal my age. Yoga is becoming a regular part of my week and I hope to make it a daily practice over the next few months.
I took an amazing painting class over the winter and the instructor was big into yoga. Along with painting techniques, she also included bits of her yoga practice. It was very inspiring. There is a relaxed, open feeling you get after doing an hour of yoga.....benefits your overall well being, strength and flexibility but also opens you up to creative possibilities. I'm hooked. So much so that I'm thinking of getting my instructor certification......my husband just laughs. He tells me I do too much.
You might be thinking, "What in the world does this have to do with glass, beads or jewelry"?.....Its the calmness. The centeredness that I find useful to my creative endeavors. Be it painting or glass working yoga has relaxed me and centered my thinking. It loosens you up and makes you more ready for new ideas.....thats me anyways. I just love it.....Sadly, I'm missing my yoga class tonight due to prepping for the art show next week.....very focused on my students work and my work seems to be second fiddle for now.
