A Yoga Slideshow In Bermuda (No Triangle Pose Here!)

Bermuda, a 21-square-mile island in the middle of the Atlantic, renowned as a top cruise destination and a harbor of mysteries, is also a thriving yoga destination. On a recent trip, I had the privilege of teaching yoga there and met the photographer Peter L. Aldrich, a native Bermudian.

Peter specializes in photographing yogis both traveling and local, and whisked me away to some of the most stunning beaches that Bermuda has to offer. His enchanting photos showcase the colors and vivacity of this small island, while illuminating what draws so many of us to yoga.

I practice yoga to conquer my deepest fears, even on these rocks with the sea some 20 meters below me. When Peter asked me to do a handstand here I was terrified, but up for the challenge! This pose took me right to the edge of my fears and forced me to stay poised while I pushed past them.

I had to stay really focused on the rocky cliffs of this rugged Bermuda beach.
