Over 50 people from around the city, state and country participated in the WAYcation event that included many different styles of yoga classes, a yoga-inspired art show, a yoga fashion show, a tiki party, and a beach cook-out.
“It’s almost like the way of life when you go on vacation,”said Will Jones, who owns We Are Yoga with his wife, Erika Jones. “You want to have a good time, things to look forward to and get a yoga class in. It’s a yoga vacation.”
Cheyenne Smith, a long-time artist and yoga practicer, displayed some of her zen artwork at the Yoga Art Show held Saturday night at Frame of Mind.
“I doodled a lot, and it just progressed from there,” she laughed. “I do mixed media artwork because there are so many layers to the painting. Every time you look at the painting there’s something different that pops out. Thats what I like about it.”
Since she identifies with the Buddist traditions, most of her artwork features figures and themes from the religion.
“I’d like to call it zen art,” she said. “It’s really my inside coming out onto canvas.”
