I love yoga. I started out in an Iyengar class when I was 22, and I’ve kept a fairly consistent practice since then. I’m not someone who’s going into the yoga hall of fame or anything, but I like it. Sometimes I start feeling myself veering left of center and I need to take time to come back to myself and re-align my priorities. Yoga never fails to help me rediscover that everything I need — whether its perseverance or surrender — is within me. Yoga shows me the way to recognize and honor it. Might sound like hocus pocus to some, but go to a class and I guarantee your mind and heart will feel richer yet lighter.
And let’s be honest, it feels great to work hard and sweat a lot.
Although I’ve done just about every kind of yoga from hatha flow to Bikram, I am really loving the hot vinyasa flow at Tessa Canterbury’s Yoga:Vinyassa. It was a treat for me to photograph her studio’s yogis for the latest issue of Grand Valley Magazine.
