As an active yogi, Kristin is always looking to her practice for style and design inspiration. Bird’s Tail Designs is inspired by a graceful and elegant Tai Chi move called “Grasping the Bird’s Tail.”
The name of this movement, “Grasping the Bird’s Tail,” is derived from a Chinese expression which refers to paying attention to important details. In the case of Tai Chi, the practitioner pays attention to core energetic and structural elements of his or her practice. Each small movement has purpose. Like the move, Kristin's goal in her designs is to pay attention to the details; every move or design has purpose. The bird's tail signature hoops are inspired by this beautiful asana - the shape mimicking the delicate and graceful shape of the bird's tail.
