Today, the Summer Solstice, is the first ever International Day of Yoga. Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, said in his address to the UN General Assembly, "Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature."
I am eternally grateful that this ancient Indian science is an integral part of my life. My ongoing photographic exploration of yoga over the last three and a half years has lead me around the world to experience it's myriad of forms and expressions--Bhakti, Jnana, Karma, Raja, Kundalini, Iyengar, deeper and deeper.
