Thank you so much for the time you've devoted to Namaste Yoga, and yourself, by participating in ourSadhana Journey. If you practiced one episode or all 26 with us, we think you've gained useful insights into the series, and yourself, as you've endeavored to explore and deepen intoeach posture.
The Namaste Yoga team felt such efforts should be honored with a very unique prize. As seems to happen along any Sadhana we take, the prize revealed itself over the course of the journey. It came to us in the form of designer extraordinare and Namaste Yogini,Rena Phillips. An artist of incredible depth and instinct, Rena designs beautiful works using significant numbers, phrases and images. She melds them together to create graphics that are personal and unique to the individual who inspired them. We were intrigued.
You may remember seeing questions on ourFacebook wallregarding favourite poses and inspiring quotations? The answers to those questions guided Rena's work. She used the number 26 (for all 26 episodes explored in the journey), and melded an image of Dancer's Pose from the Namaste Yoga series with the design she created with the number. To that she added the quote: "Calm the mind, strengthen the body, inspire the soul," and created a one-of a kind design.
Now we have an inspiring image, what shall we do with it?
So many in the community have asked about a Namaste Yoga line of clothing. While we are not to the point of developing a line just yet, we decided a one-of-a-kind t-shirt with Rena's incredible design was exactly the right prize! Only one shirt will be produced, and we will first have to contact our winner to get the right size.
When will we know?
We already do. But our winner does not! Watch for our September Newsletter to find out who our Sadhana Grand Prize recipient (and September Featured Namaste Yogini) will be. Look for our August Newsletter this weekend to learn who will receive a complimentary copy of Namaste Yoga, Season Two.
