108 yoga images from 2012: through the lens and from the soul of Robert Sturman.

Yoga is beautiful.

I believe that if Michelangelo had known yoga, the streets of Rome would be filled with marble sculptures celebrating the poetry of asana — a poetry that longs to touch the divine and say ‘thank you for this life.’
The following 108 images are a small collection of work from 2012 I have created with many human beings devoted to striving towards their highest potential. It is a remarkable moment in time  for us all and it is an honor to call myself…  your artist.

Robert Sturman
A dedicated yoga practitioner, photographer Robert Sturman has increasingly focused on capturing the timeless grace and embodied mindfulness of asana in his work. His portraits, whether set in the lively streets of Manhattan, the expansive beaches and canyons of Malibu, the timeless elegance of Walden's New England, or the bleakness of Marin County's San Quentin Prison, remind us that there is beauty everywhere. In Sturman's own words, "I often think of Rumi's words, 'I can't stop pointing to the beauty.' That feels right to me." Sturman's honors include Official Artist of the 47th Annual Grammy Awards, 2010 FIFA World Cup Artist Representing America, and Official Artist 2007 United States Olympics. In 2012 and 2013, Sturman was the subject of two separate New York Times articles celebrating his photographs of yoga from around the world. You can find out more about Robert’s work at his online studio and connect with him via Facebook and Twitter.
