I am so grateful for yoga. Beautiful, centering, strengthening yoga. Sometimes I sway so out of balance. It happens slowly but I feel it so suddenly. I feel it in my body and mind. It envelope me. Then I return to the mat. Even if it’s been weeks. Months. And it’s instant peace. Strength. Balance. Fulfillment. Energy. Expansion.
I did this flow the other day. It was amazing. I’m definitely not done with her routines. I did another the day after and it was different but just as beautiful. Just as unique. Just as empowering and centering.
Thank you, yoga.
Excited to be starting a month of prompts with the beautiful and inspirational Hannah Marcotti. Can’t wait to get started!
I love that these are still hanging out in the ether. Here.
I’m excited to announced that I’ve won an instagram photography contest with Local Flair magazine of the Poconos. They’ve chosen the photo below to be on the cover of theirÂ August/September issue (the food issue) which is going to print today! I’m so excited and can’t wait to see it in print.
They also asked me to submit a few sentences about myself to go in the publication. I was happy to have the fire lit and here’s what I came up with, thanks to Kerilyn and Dave (for helping!):
Kyra Dosch-Klemer is a web designer and artist striving to expose the natural beauty and simplicity found inÂ ordinary moments. I seek to illuminate the sublime elegance often concealed within the mundane in orderÂ to heighten awareness of the moment through the beautiful stillness and magic that is present in most moments. This is realized through emphasis on the natural state of things.Â I aim to honor the purity in my art as well as in life, whether it isÂ in the musicÂ I listen to, the items in my home, or the foodÂ I feed my family. Purity, as a concept, permeates my life. You can view some of her design work at http://www.whykyra.com.
Sweltering heat. Cacophony of children. Exhaustion.
