This piece iterates an ongoing exploration of the hip joint, the space in and around where the head of the femur sits in the socket of the pelvis known as the acetabulum. The yogi reaches through time when she reaches for a deep bind, exploring layers of tension in the body. The pose here is pasasana, or noose pose, and is the first pose of the 2nd series of Ashtanga yoga.
Deborah Santoro is an artist who runs a contemporary art gallery. She is a wife and mother of three who loves to walk in the woods and practice yoga. Deborah was not politically active before the Women’s March of 2017 and so some of the mess we find ourselves in is her fault and she is doing her best to vindicate that by helping to organize an Indivisible group in her home town with a group of like minded people. #resist
