Artists, need some inspiration? Here are some yoga poses to enhance creativity


I’ve been meeting lots of artists and entrepreneurs lately, creative people who work with ideas all the time. So I made a video showing you how to get inspired with yoga.

Even if you’re a beginner or new to yoga, you can do these postures because the inversions are supported.

ACTION STEP : Try at least one of these yoga poses the next time you’re feeling stuck or unmotivated. Nothing gets the brain moving faster than getting the blood going.

If you loved this video, you’re going to love my upcoming beginner yoga class starting on Monday, May 14. Go here for more information:  http://activehandsyoga.com/classes/6-week-beginner-yoga-class-series/

Let me know if you have any requests for a short yoga routine and/or questions about yoga or meditation!

Yogis Talk Radio Show: Inaugural Episode with Eliza Lynn Tobin

Welcome to the the very first episode of the Yogis Talk radio show! I am so excited to share this with you.

In this series I’ll be interviewing yoga teachers and practitioners whose yoga practice has impacted all areas of their lives.

Today I am pleased to introduce you to Eliza Lynn Tobin from Art Asana, who explores the connection between yoga and visual art through her radiant yoga-inspired paintings.

Eliza has been an artist for almost her entire life and offers a wealth of experience about how to become more creative through yoga, as well as sharing some of her best advice, including:

  • How to find the space of healing in the experience of flow (as explained by psychologist Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi)
  • The story behind her beautiful, inspiring manifesto–downloadable here: http://www.artasana.com/manifesto)
  • Creating from within rather than with your external senses
  • And why it’s important to find playful joy in your daily life

Listen to the entire interview to learn more…
