Yoga is art .....

I became very intimate with a Chopin nocturne that I spent countless hours learning for a piano examination.

It started with a rolling bass clef.

I remember I would pretend that the piece started before it started and I would prepare my left hand to ride the wave as the notes started to cascade nearer to me.

I would close my eyes, breathe, and then move my hands up and down the keyboard playing this gorgeous piece of music.

When I step onto my yoga mat and move through a flow practice, I have the same artistic experience as when I play piano.

Yoga is art.

I believe that art, in all its various shapes and forms, touches lives in important and magnificent ways.
