Shadowplay: The Human Body

September 28, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

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:)

Note: If you are interested in Jana's yoga classes, "like" her YogaFlow Facebook page. Classes meet at New Breed Athletics in Robinson, Illinois.
