International Day of Yoga: Learn to draw visual symbol of yoga as implied line drawing in four conscious steps
Yoga can be seen as a conscious slow kinaesthetic experience that combines body and mind. The conscious can be trained; by paying attention to a body movement through instruction in slow hypnotic tone and combining words with action; paying attention to breathing or attending to felt stretch on body limbs.

Any action or activity done with concentrated consciousness turns into yoga – often termed as Karma Yoga. As Sally Kempton puts it, “The very heart of yoga practice is ‘abhyasa’ – steady effort in the direction you want to go.” Thus, conscious or mindful action and its practice is also yoga.

One of ways of converting symbolic drawing through stepwise conscious drawing called ‘implied line drawing is also yoga – the visual symbol drawing yoga, I think. In this type of drawing lines are not joined.

Let’s learn to draw Yoga symbol through step-wise drawing in four easy steps by resting for a moment after each step to involve yoga principle in it.

The four steps are as follows:

1.     Draw two parallel vertical lines and top of them draw a horizontal line and a circle as a symbol of bust.

2.     Draw non-joined curved lines below the bust to represent the squatted legs.

3.     Draw the pointed lines up and over the head to represent the arms.

4.     Draw small pointed lines over the arms to represent the folded hands.

This way you will be able to turn your visual symbol drawing into action-yoga. Such assistive visual code drawings are useful for children with special needs for sharpening their non-verbal communication.
