steady and joyful

As a yoga teacher, I noticed that many people are intimidated by the skinny, flexible people that typically inhabit a yoga class. People rarely understand the purpose or practice of it.

 

As a designer, I noticed most books, websites, and other yoga media outlets looked incredibly "hippie dippy" or contained a multitude of words with 7+ syllables.

 

For my senior thesis at RISD I decided to address this barrier between the average human and yoga. The projects consists of a book explaining the basic concepts of yoga, a series of cards outlining short yoga sets, and posters for quick access to poses and breath practices.
