The human body is an amazing thing.
It's capable of bending, breaking, mending.
After taking an extended break from yoga, a friend suggested I take one of Jana's yoga flow classes.
I didn't realize how much I missed it.
The class is mentally and, at times, physically challenging. It requires complete focus to work through the poses, the stretches. It's awesome to successfully complete - or even get close - to a pose you've been working on.
Everyone works at their own skill level, and there's no judgment. I leave the class feeling strong and healthy.
I knew I wanted to do a photo like this for a long time. I just needed a good subject who could convey peacefulness and strength.
One night at yoga, it hit me. Thankfully, Jana was willing to help out.
I actually did two images with Jana in this pose. The first one, I lit the front of her face. I loved the photo, but it didn't have the feel of this one.
Peace and strength.
May we all find both:)
