PICTURES FROM THE 2014 MID-SUMMER YOGA PICNIC AND BBQ!
July 30, 2014

Wonderful people, great Yoga, perfect weather, beautiful venue, delicious BBQ spread, colorful pictures – all in one afternoon! It was a first – food and fun as the pinnacle – this Mid-Summer Yoga Picnic and BBQ gathering! It was short, but so very sweet!

We enjoyed practicing yoga on the beautifully manicured grounds of Herrington on the Bay located on the banks of the Chesapeake. We began by cultivating the sun (Surya) energy within the seven chakras (energy centers) and then cooling them down with relaxing postures invoking the moon energy (Chandra).

With great anticipation, under the covered Herrington Pavilion overlooking the beach, we enjoyed a freshly prepared and well-deserved BBQ, complete with all the fixings and sides. A perfect way to spend a summer afternoon with fellow yogis!

In celebration of summer, the color theme for this retreat was neon; it made for colorful pictures! Take a look…

YOU ARE YOUR REFLECTION…YOGA STYLE!
July 20, 2014

Team photographer Greg and I were at it again! My idea to take pictures of yoga poses in a reflection took shape as Greg and I wandered around the beautiful grounds of the Gaylord Resort Hotel at National Harbor. We were looking for different and interesting ways to capture my reflection.

Greg and I make a good team. Most of our photo shoots start out with a crazy idea of mine, we then set out to find a location and Greg adds his talented eye to catch the right shot. The following pictures are an example of the creative process in its most pure and inspired state – happening in the moment and with an undertone of playfulness and fun! What’s really amazing – these pictures are not retouched or photoshopped in any way!

Enjoy…
