YOGA IN TIMES SQUARE

June 21, Equinox – Once a year Summer is greeted in New York City by thousands of Yoginis on Yoga mats right in the middle of Times Square! Between 44th & 45th Streets & Broadway. Yoga classes go on all day in one-hour shifts. This was the second time for me and my student, Ed. After this, we went to EATALY, a dining and food shopping experience at 23rd Street and Fifth Avenue, not to be missed!

Woman, Art & Sakti

Inherent in each person is the power to create. That power, in Sanscrit, is termed Sakti. Sakti is usually understood to be divine inspiration, or sometimes referred to as one's Muse. It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you a woman whose art is informed by this universal power, and manifests in her depictions of nature's undulations.

Provy Munafo'

Born in Boxhill (Melbourne) Australia, Ms Munafo' lives and has a studio in the commune of Villa Franca T., Messina, Sicily, Italy. She has a diploma in Applied Arts from the Institute of Arts of Messina, and has a degree from the Academy of Fine Arts of Reggio Calabria.

Ms. Munafo' is a teacher, and for many years is actively pursuing an artist's career, distinguishing herself in regional and national exhibits and competitions. She has had one-woman shows and group exhibitions in several Italian cities.
