The Art of Yoga

The human body is an art form in and of itself. No canvas or paintbrush needed. Of course, artists have known this for all of time, and whether captured in paint or in photographs, the human body is a sight to behold. Lately, I’ve been gaining an appreciation for yoga. Not just for the fitness benefits, but for the grace and beauty it provides in presentation of the human form. And no, I’m not talking about creepers stalking young women in yoga pants. Through intense training and practice, yoga allows us to position the body in ways that can be breathtaking and beautiful. Here are some incredible examples.
