Yoga Cross Stitch Pattern, how very Zen of us, Yoga Girl, sitting on a blue mat and surrounded by purple butterflies is here to help you relax while you cross stitch.
Created on 16 count Aida and with cross stitch in calming tones of gold and mauve, our Yoga Girl is a delight to make.
An ancient form of exercise, yoga boosts physical and mental wellbeing as you become stronger and more flexible. The Indians were the first to do yoga which is now popular world wide and a gentle practice enjoyed by people of all ages from community centres and sports clubs to hospitals and doctors’ surgeries.
Yoga is ideal if you’re stressed and a good teacher will take you slowly through classes, building your confidence as you learn new techniques.
Cross stitch is also an ideal relaxation for stressed people, it’s not just a girl thing, many men also enjoy the creative side of needlework and it’s great for children to take up as there are so many kits with large count Aida, larger bodkin needles and simple colourful patterns. Youngsters can also use large count plastic grids which fill up with stitches quickly, giving them a real sense of achievement.
Yoga Cross Stitch Patterns
As long as you can count to 10 which is the size of the grid on a cross stitch pattern, you can cross stitch. There’s nothing difficult about it at all. The patterns often look complicated because they use a large variety of colours but the stitches really are very simple, just literally a cross!
One of the nicest things about cross stitch is that it takes your mind away from daily worries and stresses and gives you a calm space, an oasis in your day- a bit like yoga! The charts are colour block and black and white symbols and very easy to follow.
Just like yoga, cross stitch is ideal for people with a busy lifestyle who just want some time to themselves.
It’s also a joy to see a completed piece of work and to make it up into a picture or card as a gift for a friend or loved one. The more cross stitch you do, the better you become at it!
If you look at old needlework books you’ll find a lot of traditional cross stitch patterns, many of them flowers and a bit like the sort of thing your granny might make. These days there are much more fun and modern patterns to stitch, like the ones we have on the StitchMeGifts website.
