Feeling centered and strong.  I began practicing yoga 6 months ago and it has been the best thing that has entered in my life.  I have participated in many exercise regimes from running, to walking, to fitness kickboxing, back to running, and then finding yoga.  I had no idea how it would affect me.  It has made me physically and emotionally stronger. I enjoy the challenge of the poses, finding balance, and the support and encouragement from the community of people in the class.  As I continue with my practice, I am reminded that with continued work everything becomes increasingly better.  The same is true with my art.  Today's drawing is inspired by yoga.  Here Stargazer is in my favorite pose "tree." I'm a bit jealous she can hold the pose with her eyes closed.


  1. I like how you are sort of illustrating your life here, very cool. I also enjoy yoga, it makes a big difference!!

  2. I love the snake-like branches of the tree! I have wanted to try yoga for a long time - it is in my "to do" list for 2012. For now, I find my tranquility through writing and drawing. Ahhhhh...

  3. Alison, I highly recommend trying yoga. I never thought I'd like it. I'm such a cardio person, but I love it.
