Out sketching at Occidental Park with the Seattle urban sketchers yesterday, I saw this row of chairs and tables leading all the way back to the Bamba Fusion food truck. Zoom in for a closer look and you will discover a group of men practicing some unusual and odd postures. Is it possible that there's a new movement of street yoga that I don't know about?
If so, I believe that I have deciphered the names of some of the poses: (left to right)
- Deodorant check
- Hair of the Dog
- Lean and Read (balance)
- Centering head in circle (back)
- Hokey Pokey-right foot in (front)
- Street Lamp
- Hands Free Text and Walk Stretch (advanced)
As break dancing is to ballroom, street yoga could prove a grittier alternative to traditional methods.
(The chair yoga pose on the far right is "Sketcher")
