These candles will bring balance and quiet to any room, just like yoga does for the body. Handmade using an iron rod, these unflinching stick figures demonstrate three yoga poses: the balasana (child's pose), bhujangasana (cobra), and adho mukha svanasana (downward facing dog). Designed by Lauri Robbins Ericson, who was a Peace Corps volunteer and 18-year yoga practitioner, and handmade in India under fair trade partnerships. Her mission is to unite the spirit and aesthetic form of yoga with the artistic craftsmanship in developing countries. Each comes with one votive candle, color will vary. Handmade in India. Sold individually.

Lauri Robbins Ericson
Designer Lauri Robbins Ericson has been practicing yoga for 18 years, including during her time in Togo,
Africa, when she was in the Peace Corps from 1994 to 1995. Yoga was then, and is now, a
daily reminder for her of the common threads that human beings share, in
contradiction to the surface differences among us. It is a calm and
spiritual and peaceful oasis available to us in the midst of hectic,
chaotic, and, sometimes, violent times.
She created the candle holders to embody these feelings and paradoxes. Each one is unique, hand-made. Yet they are symbols of a philosophy and tradition that transcends the personal. Lauri wanted to recreate the fluidity of the asana in the simple lines of the sculptures.
On a different level, in founding her company,she wanted to help the poor and disenfranchised, women in particular, such as those with whom she worked and lived with during her time in the Peace Corps.
Lauri currently lives in New Haven, Connecticut with her husband and their two cats.
