Namaste Magic

These frogs doing yoga were a gift to JoyMaster Nancy. We wanted to create an area for them in the shade where it looked as though they had enough room to move around and really do yoga. This is a really fun space to have kids try to do the same poses as the frogs. It features an old tree stump on its side, giving the practice area some mystic sense of there being another place to retreat to for mediation. The foliage along the back for of the outdoor yoga studio gives it a sense privacy and rejuvenates the soul with dense greenery.
