What a phenomenal opportunity to be such an intimate part of Ashton Szabo's Yogi Night School - 54 Hour "Cultivating the Craft of Teaching" in August of 2013. This course included training on the following: how to understand and breakdown yoga poses and work with injuries and special needs. Along with hands on adjustments and adjustments with props, the myths and stories of yoga poses, creating a thriving private yoga business, yoga retreats and workshops.
Not only did I get to photograph multiple nights of adjustments, but also got to spend a beautiful Saturday morning playing around the infamous Leo Carrillo Ranch in Carlsbad, CA with these phenomenal yogis!
Below are individual and group portraits of these wonderful souls.
I cannot thank each of you enough for allowing me to capture these moments in your lives.
I look forward to seeing these images promoting all the wonderful work you’re doing in your community!
