Art! A human botanical garden

Travis Bedel a.k.a. Bedelgeuse does some really cool collages combining human anatomy and flora/fauna taken right out of a botanical garden. These pieces, like the one he did above of the flowered lungs, gave me visual inspiration for yoga cues such as “taking a deep, fluid breath” and “breathing deeply, expanding the ribcage”.

We’ve been diligently coloring our anatomy lessons for teacher training, and it’s really given me appreciation of even the small things I do, like lifting a hot cup of tea to my lips, or swiveling around on both feet when I realize I went the wrong direction. Isn’t the human body amazing?
