Yoga In Unlikely Places (Gorgeous Slideshow)

I do not consider myself a photographer but rather recognize my calling as an artist celebrating the graceful poetry of the asana. Something as simple as a tree pose inside a jail cell can transform the vibration of a prison. A yoga studio plays host to yoga classes but the vast landscape of our world with all of it's beauty and complexities provides the perfect backdrop for the soul of yoga.

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."
