I am endlessly fascinated by the practice of yoga. I am changed through my own practice. I love photographing practitioners... One of the qualities always present in the yoga studios I photograph: love. There is something about the way yoga takes a person into the core of who they are through the body, that results in love: love for oneself and love for others. I photographed Joy and Matty's wedding in October. Joy teaches yoga in New York City, and I knew after meeting her that I wanted to include her in my series. She told me that when she teaches, her husband Matty accompanies her with his guitar. I loved the idea of photographing the two of them together in the yoga studio. Thank you to Shri Hubbard, owner of Bliss Yoga Shala, for allowing us to work in her beautiful treehouse studio.
