Original Paintings, Art Prints and Cards by Leigh Cypres

My paintings are a reflection of my yoga practice.  When I began yoga, it was all about figuring out the pose.  How do I get into the pose ?  Where do my arms and legs go ? How do I breathe ? Similarly, my first yoga inspired paintings were the pose.  

As my physical practice becomes deeper. I am learning to grow in the discomfort.  Then you realize it is not even about the pose.  It is about what you are discovering. You are changing, you start to notice things about yourself, about your connections to the world around you..  

You are breaking down to your essence, remembering your true nature.
