The Image of Yoga is a community photography project to remind the world that Yoga is a practice that is accessible to everyone—every age, shape, size and ethnicity.

 

What does yoga look like?

 

First, we've got to acknowledge that you can't actually photograph  yoga itself...

The fancy gymnastics that much of our culture identifies with yoga is simply asana, the physical practice of yoga. But the word actually means something closer to “union”, implying union between breath & body, self & world, personal & divine. It’s expressed in many ways, from physical and breath practices to meditation, selfless love to community service.

So “yoga” is a lot of things, or it’s something both complex and simple... it's challenging, if not impossible, to photograph.

... but you can photograph yogis.
