Headstand is a really tough pose, requiring immense upper body strength, which this curvy yogini clearly has. I can do many poses as a curvy lady but this one is still work in progress. So here is a tribute to her with specially designed Kalamkari clothing, and yoga studio.

Kalamkari is a type of hand-painted or block-printed cotton textile produced in Isfahan, Iran, and in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Only natural dyes are used in Kalamkari, which involves twenty-three steps. There are two distinctive styles of Kalamkari art in India – Srikalahasti style and the Machilipatnam style. The Srikalahasti style of Kalamkari, where the "kalam" or pen is used for freehand drawing of the subject and filling in the colors, is entirely hand worked.
