    [MOC] YEGO

    Hello Eurobricks! I am happy to present to you my latest creation, or rather series of creations that I named YEGO. YOGA + LEGO = YEGO Yes, I know that’s an easy pun. YEGO by Gregory Coquelz, on Flickr I have practiced Yoga occasionally since my teens (I’m in my 40’s now). I started it because I had stress management issues and it really helped me. I keep doing it every now and then, whenever I feel like my body needs it… a few breathing exercises, a few poses… A few years ago, the idea to mix Yoga and Lego crossed my mind (that’s usually how it goes, if I like something I eventually try to give it the LEGO treatment). That being said, Yoga in LEGO form is not exactly intuitive or straightforward. LEGO is not exactly known for its bending properties... so, how to tackle this? I then thought of trying a brick-built character. My first one was the Lotus (Padmasana). Relatively simple, it seemed like a reasonable challenge. I was quite happy with the result… but it left me wanting something more. So, I continued to explore the possibilities until I had a series of 3 different characters. These first creations remained on a shelf for a while... every now and then I would have an itch to build another, until the day I was looking at 9 different characters striking all kinds of improbable poses. That’s when I realized I had a good idea, and that this concept could very well take the shape of an official LEGO set. YEGO is therefore now a LEGO Ideas project! Imagine a YEGO “starter kit”. A small set, 300-350 elements? Allowing to build 3 characters in different poses. Most of the elements are common to each pose... the possibilities are endless. The set could also include alternate building instructions – like a “Creator 3 in 1” set or the BrickHeadz “Brick me” set. The base character is meant to be neutral and androgynous – but it is also easily customizable. For instance, it would also only take the swapping of a few elements to represent a different skin tone or a different color of clothing. But the concept does not stop there. I envision that this set could also serve as an introduction to Yoga. Build the poses, and then practice then for real! I am mostly thinking of the younger audiences here (there is no age requirement to practice Yoga) … what better way to initiate your kids to Yoga than to do so with a LEGO set? If you feel that this project is interesting, I encourage you to click the link below and vote to show your support! https://ideas.lego.com/content/project/link/154cc77a-0764-4bc3-a17f-8ecc3916bd97 Here are a few additional close-up views of the different poses. Some are quite simple… others a lot less! That is another inevitability of the AFOL syndrome… we tend to over-complicate things quite often…) Left: Upward Bow (Urdhva Dhanurasana) Right: Scorpion (Vrischikasana in Pincha Mayurasana) Yego duo 1 by Gregory Coquelz, on Flickr Left: Warrior I variation (Virabhadrasana I) Right: Lord of the Dance Pose (Nataraja) Yego duo 2 by Gregory Coquelz, on Flickr Left: Warrior III (Virabhadra III) Right: Tree pose (Vrksasana) Yego duo 3 by Gregory Coquelz, on Flickr Left: Cobra (Bhujangasana) Right: Triangle (Trikonasana) Yego duo 4 by Gregory Coquelz, on Flickr Lastly, some of you may remember that this is not my first attempt at LEGO Ideas project. In 2010, my project “Shaun of the Dead, the Winchester” secured the necessary support to reach the review stage thanks to the incredible support of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright. Sadly, it was then denied by LEGO. If you are interested to hear more about that story, check it out here: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/64112-an-internet-tale-winchestershaun-of-the-dead-project-on-cuusoo/ I can at least say that this slightly disappointing experience was not entirely for nothing – as it got me the fun name tag of “Valiant Effort” on this forum! (I never knew who to thank for that btw ). I had told myself never again… but you should never say never… and, I swear, this time no Zombies!

    Happy Star Wars Day! I was recently given the opportunity to create this little stop-motion LEGO video for an online gong training program: You can also view more detailed images of the MOC Modular Yoda Yoga Studio in the LEGO Town forum:
