Beautiful studio this morning.
Beautiful studio this morning.
People on social media too often like a photo within second and move on, but take some time to appreciate the details of each photo. I really love the details in this shot, on every level. You have Georgina who is in a very complex pose, contrasted against a rigid and straight column. You have her white outfit contrasting with the black. You have the reflections on the waxed wood floor. You have Georgina's arm muscles (hell yeah 💪🏼). And if you look closely, you can see the tattoo on her ankle. It's definitely the little things in life (and photography) that make things special. • • • • • #BE_portraiture #yogamats #yogamagic #yogamodel #yoganyc #yoganewbie #yoganerd #headstandvariation #headstands #yogabalance #yogabeyond #yogablogger #yogablog #yogababe #yogabums #yogachick #yogaclasses #yogagoals #nikonearth_ #nikonshot #NikonD5500 #portraits_vision #photoseries #photoshots #yogaworks
FINALLY getting to some of my shots with Georgina - we really pushed boundaries on creativity in these. Traditionally with yoga photography you get your typical shots of poses, but Georgina knows how much I love composition work. So here were were, using crystals (which Georgina gave me some lessons on). What do you all think?! ✌🏼️🧘🏽♀️🕉️ • • • • • #BE_portraiture #yogaworks #yogaworld #yogawoman #yogawithfriends #yogaphoto #yogaphotographer #yogapic #yogapics #yogatravel #yogateacherlife #yogateachers #yogaitalia #yogaisfun #yogaprops #yogas #yogafeature #yogaforhealth #portraitsnyc #portraitfeed #portraitfeature #portraitsquad #nikon_photo #namasteॐ
What does it take to be a yoga teacher? A few years ago these two yoga teachers were eager, curious and dedicated teacher trainees. Now they are both exceptional teachers. In every teacher training class there are only a few, if any, who go on to make a career out of teaching. It takes grit, talent, compassion and confidence on a daily basis. Like being an artist or a writer, teaching yoga really isn’t something you do as a career unless you love it. As a yoga teacher you are in constant caregiver mode-making sure everyone is being held in a space of physical, mental and emotional support. You can make a living doing this work, but you probably won’t make a killing. The rewards you receive come in the form of smiles, hugs, emails saying things like, “I never thought I would be able to do a handstand and now I can!” Or “thank you for introducing me to a whole new world”. But one of the best gifts of being a teacher is to see other teachers whom you have touched even in a small way sharing the gift of yoga with others through their own personal experience and gifts. This is the ripple effect in action. This is compounding interest on your investment. Today I listened to a podcast with Suze Orman in which she shared how much she loves what she does, not because she has made a lot of money, but because she is able to help so many people change their lives by changing their relationship to money. As yoga teachers we are able to help people change their lives by changing their relationship to themselves and the world around them. I’m so grateful for this work, to the teachers who have guided me along this path and to those who are now lighting the way for others.

Getting my Monday mindset at @yogaworks 🙏🏼💚🧘🏻♂️
Demonstrating Surya Namaskar B for my teacher training. First I g#had them video one another and then me. Their assignment this week is to do their own videos again, editing for what they might have missed. Once you memorize the postures and sequence of sun salutations they become a moving meditation. I think of sun salutations like hitting golf balls at the driving range, which I was never very good at. But In a similar way, you do them again and again. Like the golf ball, they never go exactly the way you plan. But over time, when you practice diligently they become smoother, more succinct. And you find yourself less using your body to achieve a goal and more offering your body to the Universe as a vessel to fulfill its greater purpose. #suryanamaskarb #sunsalutations #yogateacher #yogateachertraining #eyoga #totaltransformation
Week 4 of yoga teacher training! 🙏🏾🧘🏾♀️
Always a pleasure SOHO!
