Meghan Currie & Cat: Yoga is free.

Via on Oct 21, 2011

{Meghan Currie & Cat: timelapse livingroom}

I love this video, it’s like a scene lifted out of Amelie.

Yoga isn’t pricey: it’s free. It’s as free as the air or the water. Just find a few feet of turf, or beach, or your crowded living room. No need to get away: do it right here, right now.

~

Yoga is free. It’s beautiful. It feels good. It takes your tired hurt head and neck and heart and karma and pulls them out and smoothes and soothes them the way a potter works with clay, and just a bit of water, and creates something wabi-sabi-perfect: you. As you are meant to be: more fully yourself.

Just do it.

There’s the floor. No mat necessary. Cat a plus:

    Completely "gob smacked!"Stunning, and amazing music too, thanks @Waylon Lewis

  2. James Hackney says:

    Her practice is amazing and beautiful. However, if you wanted to make the point that "yoga is free", then I propose you might better have shown a practice that could be accessible to more people.

[...] …a strangely cheerfully sad, emotional journey across the streets of America’s city begins by chance and ends at Ground Zero, only to begin again through Robert Sturman’s photos (part I) and the sharing of his and Meghan Currie’s beautiful hearts and practices and crafts.

    I'd say that sounds like a request, Meghan! A sequence, slowed down but still magical, that's accessible for James and I and others! Then we can all practice together, for free, virtually. ~ W.

    This is just beautiful. I love the combination of music, video art and asana…oh and the cat is an added bonus. Her body movement and expressions seem to convey the joy in freedom that the practice of yoga and asana carries us towards. Love it!!

  9. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this publish was once great. I don’t recognize who you’re however definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger should you aren’t already. Cheers!
