“To me, yoga is living a mindful and healthy lifestyle, both in body and mind. It is defined as “unity.” The physical poses you see in photographs and magazine are only a small aspect of yoga; they are physical exercises to make your body healthy so you can operate optimally in the world.” – Tony Felgueiras
Yoga has no doubt gained a momentum in the fitness circuits across the world. So much so that, Yoga is being seamlessly integrated with other forms of art and crafts. For instance, Yoga photography is gaining popularity, especially on Instagram. Some people who share a passion for Yoga and photography are combining the two to create magic on screen. PhotoConcierge contributor Tony Felgueiras is one of them. He says, “The most striking yoga photos are when the model is expressing themselves through the posture instead of just “posing” and as a viewer you can really feel the different, especially in the facial expression.”
“I focus on Yoga Photography with a combination of urban scenes as I find the roughness of the city and the gentle touch of Yoga makes it a wonderful combination” says Elad Itzkin another incredible photographer who specialises in Yoga Photography.
