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.
