We are pleased to share an illustrated journey of time to enliven the monthly experience of the New Year of 2016:
The Year of the Monkey and Monkey Yoga!
This is a 13 month calendar, which follows along the Chinese New Year tradition with a meaningful mid-western twist of imagination and story-telling.
As an artist, storyteller and seeker of what-when-how and why, I find Monkey to be an entertaining, delightful imagined compañero. I think of the Monkey in this illustrated calendar-story as a “he”—a little brother type companion who sometimes, like the character Hanuman in the Ramayana, is a bit of a forgetful prankster—but also dearly holds the quality of a devoted little furry amigo, comforter, challenger, a special imagined companion.
As we step into another year of work and play, this little Monkey can also keep us moving on a wonderful Yoga path. We’ll learn and relearn together, the relationship and connections of moving our body and minds into a healthy and purifying place of balance. Why not? Monkey Yoga––Yahoo!
Just in time for the Year of Monkey to officially begin on February 8th.
