I have been inspired by some of the yoga videos popping up and for a while I’ve aspired to make one that attempts to communicate what the practice means to me.
I think the five-minute video is an exciting new(ish) medium which can be used artistically to paint vivid pictures of the things we really care about and share them with the world. I wanted to pay homage to the teachings and the practice to which I’ve attempted to devote my life.
To me, yoga has conveyed the powerful message that, not only is the body a sort of playground but it’s a mirror of everything around it.
That everything we apprehend somatically in the body through experience can be applied outwardly into our lives. That just as in learning the nuances of how a computer or any piece of technology works we can reap it’s full potential, so too can we explore the body/mind system in order to use it as gracefully and creatively as possible.
Here’s to yoga!
