Guys Love Yoga, Too! (Gorgeous Slideshow)

This slideshow is in celebration of men who practice yoga. It is no secret that I don't have the opportunity to work with as many men as I do women, so when the male yogi presents himself for a photograph, I stop everything. 

Some are teachers and some are just regular guys. At one point, it had been so long since I photographed a man doing yoga that I even used myself as the model. One thing we all have in common, though, is that yoga makes us feel good. That's why we keep coming back for more. 

About the Author

A dedicated yoga practitioner himself, Sturman's work has increasingly focused on capturing the timeless grace and embodied mindfulness of asana. His portraits, whether set in the lively streets of Manhattan, the expansiveness of Malibu's beaches and canyons, the timeless elegance of Walden's New England, or the bleakness of San Quentin Prison, remind us that there is beauty everywhere. In Sturman's own words "I often think of Rumi: 'I can't stop pointing to the beauty.' That feels right to me."
