Art of Ashtanga: Artists Reception
“Last year, the owner of my local yoga studio commissioned drawings of every pose in the Ashtanga Primary Series. The journey of making 76 drawings became a kind of inner pilgrimage. Through my own practice of Ashtanga I learned to own my narrative. Memorizing the sequence and taking responsibility for my practice helped me to begin to acknowledge my own role in life, and to be kinder to myself and others.
The early drawings were tentative and humbling: Lots of erasing, many corrections. Gradually, they evolved with more confident mark making, both firmly rooted to the earth and taking flight into the cosmos. The drawings informed my yoga practice, teaching me about alignment, form and grace. The practice, in turn infused my drawings with a deeper understanding of anatomy, balance, drishti, and breath.”
