The Lotus flower enjoys high esteem in the Eastern cultures as a symbol of enlightenment, purity and rebirth. In India, the birth land of yoga, lotus flower is a throne for many goddesses and gods. With its roots in the mud, the lotus rises up through the deep waters and creates a flower of stunning beauty. In the same way we, humans, are able to cultivate our bodies and souls so that we can let them shine.
“No Mud, No Lotus” is a textile interpretation of a sitting practice. Meditation might not be easy, but its fruits are sweet. Through the mindful practice of sitting, giving the sitting bones soft but resilient support, we can connect to the Earth and feel rooted. Our roots are in the mud! The serene circular pattern calms the brain and helps us ground deeper in our place in this world.
It is great to sit on the floor and feel connected to the ground while meditating, breathing or going through yoga asanas. Sitting on the floor helps you develop a resilient back and supple hips. This Lotus flower provides a resilient support for the sitting bones and legs in a cross-legged/lotus position and through its texture gives gentle stimulation to the areas of contact.
