Douglas Rouse painted this multi-section mural in 2011 on a building that faces the south side of the CorePower Yoga parking lot.
The left panel shows three “founding fathers” of modern yoga: Bhaktivedanta Swami, B.K.S. Iyengar and Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. The next panel shows a lotus blossom which symbolizes a sense of purity, beauty and grace. This panel also depicts a meditator with their hands in a Guyan Mudra (calming) position. The next panel shows rays of enlightenment emanating from a four handed Hindu elephant headed deity Ganesha revered as the remover of all obstacles. The next panel shows an enlightened face and five yoga students in a sun salutation pose paying homage to the “free yoga in the parks” program that CorePower offers every summer. Finally, to the far right is an empty bench continuing the yoga in the parks theme. At the top of all panels are silhouettes of various yoga poses.
