Namaste


Meet my wonderful yoga teacher, India Henson.  India, a hatha yoga instructor at ph Balanced Fitness in Vestavia,  is helping me learn to "breathe deeply and let tension flow out of the body". Where has she been all my life??  For the record, it will be a very long time before I master Tree Pose in the top photo, but I am quite good at Child's Pose on the left!

I think I could do the tree pose, but not the kid's one! I heard and said 'namaste' hundreds of time in India.... I have a namaste ring, too.

The yoga pose in the top photo is composed beautifully with the shadow and the delicate bloos in the foreground. The colour of her apparel heightens the entire image. Namaste (I bow to you) for this terrific photo.

Should read "delicate blooms"...

Yoga in the garden seems like a great idea.

In another life, I taught Yoga. You will be doing tree pose, and many other poses, before you know it.

Namaste

Nice captures -- love the shadow. For some reason, my lower back aches a bit whilst viewing the other pic. 'Let tension flow out of the body' --- love it!

Namaste! I suppose a lot of yoga originated in India! I love her top pose in the garden with the shadow! Tres bien fait, V!
