The positive yoga community project Yoga Friend UK have started their adventures this Sunday on South Bank, London. We are proud to report that for an hour we have transformed a lawn next to the busy spot on South Bank into the open air yoga and meditation practice.
We did it right in front of crowds of people, keeping our hearts and minds open, and it felt quite amazing! We offered a little bag with yoga quotes for people to choose from, and short yoga tutorials for those willing to learn.
As an artist and a yogi, I feel that breaking conventions of “labeled” public and private spaces is opening endless possibilities of positive communication and relations to an environment to happen.
Innovative approach to anything, including conventional use of physical space in the city, is necessary in the times when lots of clichés have proven to be ineffective and even harmful.
