A year ago, I went on a round-the-world trip, during which I visited 28 countries and took photos of people practicing yoga in unusual places.

Through my project, I wanted to show people from the big cities who are committed to yoga philosophy and yoga lifestyle; people, who live in the middle of a hustle but manage to maintain their harmony and happiness. It doesn’t matter what is surrounding you. What really matters – is how you look at everything around you.

The project called "Yoga and the City" combines art, spirituality, and fitness. It is a reflection of a person’s strength and power. Strength to overcome adversities and to find a balance while living in a fast-paced environment. Yoga – is a way to find alignment with your true self, to become closer to your spiritual core.

Wow. Doing the splits is hard enough. Doing them wearing an obi... awesome. (In case you didn't know: Wearing a properly tied obi is almost like wearing a corset)

Amazing! I like that composition on this photo is somewhat symmetric. Also, cllours here are so bright! It reminds me of summer, despite freezing temperatures outside.

My mom when she was young did that at home. She had to wait for a few hours for her husband to come home and release her, cause she got stuck in that position due to a muscle cotracting (she put her feet behind her neck). She ached for several days. We always remind her that, when she yells at us not doing sports enough :D

Absolutely photoshopped. The light on the body is from the wrong directions, plus no proper shadow/reflection compared to the structure. Even the light on the buildings in the background are coming from the wrong angles.

If only her hair didn’t look so damaged, it would be so pretty! (Please don’t take this as calling her hair ugly I really like the color either way)
