This past weekend I was honored to take photos of this up and coming yoga teacher. Her past consists of her getting a metal rod put in her back, a story that involves much more than I’m allowed to say. This photo is a symbol of oneness and diligence. There are a number of miraculous people in the world and seldom do we know them as they walk among us as regular people from day to day.
Each morning I get up early and I take a walk in a nearby park. The changing colors of the trees, with a slight gust of wind, the leaves dance in the air. When I approach a stump of a cut down tree, I sit at its center. I close my eyes and immediately see for a moment a swirling energy pulling away from me.
As I take in a deep breath, the scent of wet grass and leaves fills my body, peace washed over me. My body becomes as solid as the tree, the feeling of gravity is revealed to me with a pull from the base of my spine. As with the main image above, this sense of peace radiates off of the yoga teacher as she bonds with nature.
