Yoga In Photos: A Roadtrip Through The Enchanting American Southwest

A few weeks ago, I took a road trip to Sedona, Ariz. from Santa Monica, Calif. down Route 66 with my girlfriend/model/muse, Ashika. We were both asked to present at the Sedona Yoga Festival, so rather than hop on a plane we decided to take a drive down this famous All-American highway.

Not only was Sedona a magical place to create beautiful imagery within, but the entire drive there and back continuously had us pulling over — effortlessly creating works of art in the enchanting Southwestern landscape.

Here's what happened on our way to and from Sedona, and a few moments in between.
