Striking Yoga Poses And Colorful Street Art Are Perfect Match In Yoga Instructor’s Instagram
Yoga and graffiti make for strange bedfellows, but not for Soren Buchanan who does yoga poses in front of stunning pieces of street art. Her Instagram account is devoted to this passion. It is an interesting mix, to be sure, but the oddity helps to point out pieces of street art that would likely go unnoticed in the digital space. Actually, that is one of Soren’s stated goals. “Artist recognition is very important to me. If people are drawn to my images, they need to know who I am collaborating with,” she explained on Instagram blog. “I hope to bring attention to artists who, other than on the streets, might have limited venues showcasing their art and sharing their styles.” To that end, she tries to track down artists who made the graffiti to credit them with their work.
Soren is the daughter of an art teacher and a sign painter, so visuals arts were never far away in her childhood. And in her college years she began noticing street art. Not only noticing – Soren started seeking it out, jumping fences and doing other stuff to reach it. Yoga came later, when she moved away from Miami in 2009. “I spent my first Midwestern winter shocked, frozen and hiding from the cold,” Soren says. “I knew I needed to adapt and create my own warmth. Yoga was the answer.”
Wonder what interesting art + sport combination will emerge next!
