The works in this series reflect the qualities I most appreciate in my yoga practice – strength and stillness. Both involve ‘letting go’ of the thoughts that prevent us from living fully. I find stillness initially during centering at the start of my practice when I consciously strive to let go of the errands, conversations, and deadlines that preoccupy my mind. I slow my breath and relax into the mat, ready to focus on how my body is moving and responding to different poses. Throughout my practice I look for moments of stillness where I let go of effort and simply feel the pose. I find strength by letting go of fatigue, skepticism or fear of injury when trying difficult or new poses. Moreover, I notice how strength eases the flow of movement and my ability to hold a pose, where once again I find stillness.
