This is a selection of photos covering my experience in several Ashtanga yoga shalas. When I discovered this yoga practice, I immediately resonated with the practice and the intimate dialogue that each practitioner has with himself/herself and with the yoga teacher during the practice.
In these photos, I tried to capture the subtle movements of the bodies, the emotions of the practitioners during this very intense practice and the overall mood of the practice as I witnessed it. In some of the photos, you can almost feel the tension of the bodies and the reaching of the soul as they come more and more into alignment with one another. In many ways, for me, witnessing and capturing details of this yoga practice was a spiritual experience.
