Yoga Photography Art Images Wild
Albert Einstein, one of my favorite people who not only is an Aries Pig like myself but, also a very wise and brilliant man. One day after I ripped my kids off the; computer, ipad, ipod, netflix, Wii, kindle etc they proclaim "I'm bored! What am I supposed to do?". I happened to remember a Xmas present I forgot about stashed in the closet so no one including myself would ever find it. Two sketch pads and pastels. I give them the belated gift and they are pretty excited. "But what are we supposed to draw?" they asked. I said, "Use your imagination, go outside and start with nature." So off they go and over the next week or so this is what they brought back... Wow! Sage my 7 year old wanted to know if it qualified for my website and if I would share her art. Wynter my 5 year old drew some amazing pieces as well. These children, all children have so much sweet soul. XXXOOO

Horses are sensitive and they know when you're holding. This is what happens when you lay down in the pasture with cookies in your pocket in an attempt to get some artistic photographs. Lap horse.
What would you do if a world famous photographer landed in your yoga class and wanted to take some shots? Would you step up your game a little bit? Give it your heart and soul? These yogis did. In an effort to evolve our collections I/we imposed upon Hillary's class. Hillary did her usual ass kicker and I rolled around on the floor capturing the incredible light and energy of this awesome class of yogis. Never disappointed shooting yogi's. We are a special breed...
Watch out!! You might be next.

Hillary and I have decided to step out of our comfort zone of practiced yogis and into the superficial zone of Hot Bods and the idea that yoga is for everyone; especially athletes, weight lifters, beer drinkers, golfers, seniors etc. As luck would have it, we stumbled upon some seriously hot bods on Saturday's mission. It did get hot and everyone took their clothes off (except the photographers)! I must say, it certainly pays to go out on a limb and see what the universe throws at you. It might just be a bunch of hot, over tan, oiled up bodies. What fun!
It's hard to stay focused sometimes but Hillary does a great job moving hot muscle into a couple of awesome yoga postures.
You want some of this? C'mon!!!! Bring it!
Hillary rocked Lizard's Mouth. It was a gorgeous evening to take in the crystal clear sunset. Hillary got grounded for our last shoot to wrap 4 out of our 5 2014 calendars. All I have to say is that there is some serious yoga talent here in SB and we are so grateful to be able to capture so much soul right here in our own backyard.
Look no further, your inner goddess is right here. Just flip yourself upside down for a better perspective. Cynthia Abulafia gets right to the point with beauty and grace. Who just had her 2nd baby two or three months ago? That's right, Sweet Cyn.
The Robert Sturman workshop was life changing. Not because I learned a bunch of new tricks but because I realized that what we are already doing is it. It's so simple this thing called art and Robert puts it into such an easy perspective. Our mission statement says it all if words are fit paradigms to compare. Actually, Iyengar really says it appropriately, the sacred bliss in the moment (Samahdi) "Words can not express this state and the tongue fails to utter them...".
Art is one of the many true expressions of our hearts and souls. Yoga is art and it has chiseled it's way through me in ways I never thought imaginable. Namste', Marie
Getting low, then getting high Sturman style. I've signed up for a Robert Sturman photography workshop down in LA. His first tip was to get low, incorporate the sky and ad dimension to your yogi. I was missing my yogi model but substituted a flock a Snowy Plovers as my subject. What a difference the sky makes.
His other tip so far and I'm picking this up from his facebook page is that camera does not matter, it's all about you. So, I pulled out my 4G Iphone and tested this truth... I think he's right. I can't wait till our next shoot. Cynthia, Brett and Hillary are on deck.
