Namaste- Fine Living

As I was brainstorming various ideas for this topic my daughter came home from Bikram (hot yoga). This form of exercise takes her stressed nature to better place while also making the lives of others around her a little finer :).  I took photos of her doing a several poses and settled on the simplicity of this one.

  1. I particularly like your choice of quilting design, Colleen. It gives a sense of what the yoga is doing for the subject's inner well-being.

  2. A happy reminder of what I was capable of 20 years ago. Took myself back to yoga last year and this pose is definately an impossibility now. They say you are as mentally balanced as you are physically (or the other way around) ...... I am apparently 'unbalanced'!

  8. The energy radiating outwards and the navy blue are calming. This yoga is hitting the right button on your daughter (and me).
    Well done Colleen

  10. I think it's all been said! But I might just add that the quilting lines really convey the "centredness" that I feel when doing a similar position in Pilates.

  11. I love the simplicity of this piece incorporating the line and stillness. Your quilting is very effective and striking.
