PranaVayu Yoga makes mind body transformation more efficient by applying science to the practice of yoga. Philosophically, we are influenced by TIbetan Buddhism and the idea that we should work toward our own self awakening so that we can better help other people. We believe after physical yoga and meditation one would feel an openness, clarity in mind, peacefulness yet energetic (body) and bliss. Person would feel completely satisfied. Ie. We use the blue lotus flower during meditation as a visual because it represents purity, here is a story of the lotus flower. "Imagine that you are a lotus seed buried beneath a muddy lotus pond.
There is mud all around you, and you can feel them clearly.
Above you, above this muddy pool of dirt, mud and filth, are
sunshine and air. You are not disheartened as you begin your
journey towards the surface.With
a determined heart, you begin to wiggle in the earth. You grow
roots deep, deep into the mud. Your little stem grows up slowly.
Suddenly, "pop" you are out of the mud! Your stem
grows higher and higher, taller and taller. You rise up slowly,
fighting against the muddy water. All of a sudden, you are out
of the muddy pond! You reach up towards the warm sun, shining
down on you.Your lotus bud begins to grow on top of your stem. It expands and
grows larger and larger, finally bursting into full bloom. A
white lotus flower. You stand beautifully above the muddy water,
not dirtied by the mud from which you grow."
Is there a way to convey this idea without the lotus flower?
And a visual of the flame is used to melt away or open channels in the body. These are concepts, please be CREATIVE not literal. We do not necessarily need to see flames and lotus flowers. Can some other design or shape or text portray the same ideas of openness, clarity in mind, peacefulness yet energetic strong (body) and bliss. If a person is used please be abstract with it. There should be a sense of modern and ancient. The person does not need to necessarily be in a yoga pose. Please be super creative without clip art.
Our target audience is predominantly female, ages 25 - 40.
