Images of yoga practitioners in the Western media are almost invariably of white people (mostly female), which is more than somewhat ironic, all things considered.

So I was interested to run into this tumblr:

http://blackyogis.tumblr.com/

It's also a source of really gorgeous images full stop, for anyone who's looking for inspiration (or icon material).

I was looking for pretty pictures to icon, and started getting frustrated with how hard it is to find media images of yoga practitioners who don't have "perfect" mainstream model-type bodies.

So here are some icons of yoga teachers Megan Garcia and Matthew Sanford (I really need to write up a review of his extraordinary book Waking), on their own and working with students.



Comment, credit, take; feel free to use as bases.

I found this today via some random link-hopping; I think those of us who are or have been cat owners will be able to relate.

More icons

An offering for [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw, as will be all the content I post in this community over the next three weeks or so.

Some more icons. No need to credit (though also feel free to credit. Whatever! I'm mellow!). Though it would be great if you mentioned the community. Use as you see fit. Namaste.

Thanks to [personal profile] seleneheart for help with the table.

ETA: I meant to say that the last three were illustrations I found at this website, which sells all three medallions as artwork.

I was looking for yoga images this morning for another batch of icons, and the thought occurred...

Would there be any interest in a community wallpaper?

I was thinking, over the next, oh, six weeks or so, I could collect images of people who read this community doing yoga. You could post links to sendspace anonymously, or you could e-mail images to me at baranduin at gmail dot com.

I would take your images, crop them, and arrange them into a wallpaper.

You would have to control your own level of visual anonymity, if you didn't want your face to show (for instance, photo taken from behind, or face turned away), but in the wallpaper, your image would not be connected with any name, RL or cyber-identity.

I'll collect your images until June 1?

There will be more icons. Found some great stuff this morning.

Love, CK

UPDATE: A certain party was laughing her ass off imagining "the potential image of butts in the air doing downward dog all arranged neatly in a row." Now I feel the need to request as many of these pictures as possible... :D
