Yoga // Staying connected to the earth

I used to do yoga on a fairly regular basis.  I love how it makes me feel, the energy it gives me.  But as all such things that require regular discipline in my life (unrelated to photography or art), I have a hard time keeping up with attending as often as I should to get the full effect.  I was reminded about the joys of yoga when I was commissioned to do a series of instructional and conceptual images for yoga instructor Krista Block.  Seeing her movements come so easily with calm and joy was amazing.  Not to mention her sense of balance and stamina.  We spent all day in the studio working hard but none as hard as she.  Check out a few of my favorites!
