This is me pouring iron four years ago. I am an artist. I went to school for a bachelors of fine art, concentrating on jewelry, metalsmithing and printmaking. I am still an artist, only most people probably do not consider me one.
My mission statement I declared as an artist was to improve the world. As I continued trying to bring awareness to my community by smithing objects and prints, I realized yoga to be the most effective medium. The most successful artists choose the best suited medium for their message and yoga delivers the message that my heart needs to share, the message of connection one has to all entities. Our purpose here is not to serve ourselves a cushy house with the luxury to vacation once or twice a year at the price of biodiversity of rainforests or the sea creatures, but to share the divine love that we’ve been gifted with all beings. My mission is to inspire thinking about others first before serving the self, to empower ourselves to take a step out of the center at this crucial time when our planet is at a tipping point leaning towards destruction.
