HAVE SOME YOGA "ON THE ROCKS"
As you might recall, last week’s story focused on Ella’s life-changing experience by introducing #yoga into her life to improve her health. And this week we will put yoga into practice by a Do-It-Yourself activity. Many things take us down memory lane as they remind us of special moments that brought joy into our lives. One of these such special things that create a nostalgic feeling in me are stones. I remember when I was a child I used to love collecting rocks of all sizes and colors and then I used to write tiny #messages on them. These messages were words that I connected with such as #happy, #nervous, #princess, #love, and #excitement. I am sure that you too have certain words that are close to your heart, many of which u have been using from your childhood. So let’s again become kids and write on stones what we wish to. In this case, I have written my power words that are harmony, joy, love, peace and yoga as I connect with them at this very moment. I chose to paint using permanent markers and chalk markers purchased from #Barcelona, #Spain.
Additionally, I #painted some simple yoga #poses on these stones to remember them and then treasure them in a safe place where I can find them. I sourced these yoga poses online and chose some of the ones I practice on a daily basis. What you first need to do is practice using these markers on a sheet of paper by first pressing them for 20 seconds as the ink will collect on the tip. Then practice #sketching the pose a few times before you paint it on the #rock as each rock will be a bit tricky to paint on due to its texture and form. You can even plan which colors who want to combine as you have a variety of them to select from.
