IMMAGINI DI KINO MACGREGOR

CHE FA LE SUE COSE DI YOGA IN CENTRO A BOLOGNA 🙂

 

“Sii infinitamente flessibile e costantemente meravigliato.”

Ho già menzionato in un blog precedente (vedi Kino MacGregor about yoga and determination) la meraviglios esperienza di scattare delle fotografie di yoga con Kino MacGregor in centro a Bologna, ormai poco più di 2 settimane fa. Di seguito una galleria di immagini che immortalano alcuni momenti speciali di quel pomeriggio, giusto prima di un pesante temporale che ci ha impedito di continuare, nel caso tu non le abbia già viste sulla mia pagina facebook da fotografa.

IMAGES OF YOGA, INSTANTS OF LIFE… IN RISHIKESH

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see   –   Henry David Thoreau

For the past 3 months I’ve been writing about my intense time of Ashtanga Yoga studying at Tattvaa Yogashala in Rishikesh and regular readers know I didn’t have much time left for whatever else as the study program kept me busy on average 12h per day, 6 days a week. Nonetheless, I couldn’t stay away from my camera and photo shootings each time I had a little spare time. Here a few of my favorite images of yoga taken over that time. Hope they can be of inspiration!

What are your preferred ones?

HAVING FUN ON THE OTHER SIDE

As a photographer you’re always on one side of the camera, this is how it happens I have almost no pictures of myself :-)

Nonetheless, last Saturday it was sooooooooooo much fun to join Virginia Tucci, my model for the day, on the other side of the camera and take the chance that my dear friend and photographer Roberto Portesani was present to play and have fun for a while…

Here a few shots:

‘YOUR DONATIONS IMPACT!  THRU YOGA GIVES BACK’

I just went thru my inbox and found the Yoga Gives Back newsletter for March month and… I was so happy to read the following:

Thanks to tremendous support from the global yoga community and sponsors in 2012, we are now funding 109 mothers and 110 daughters in West Bengal, 17 orphaned children and 1 medical/dental student in Karnataka!!! YGB is committed to fund each person for 5 years.

I want again to thank you all attendants to ‘Images of Yoga, Instants of Life’ photo exhibit for your donations in support of this amazing cause. You can read stories about funded children and other details here.

‘IMAGES OF YOGA, INSTANTS OF LIFE’

WITH GRATITUDE

One week is already over since the vernissage of my first yoga photography exhibition – titled ‘Images of Yoga, Instants of Life’ – took place and…

… thank you Alessandra di Prampero, for making all that possible. You had the idea on the spot and made available your wonderfully energetic yoga place – the Sattva Studio – to allow the event;

… thank you to all those people who have visited the exhibition and still will visit it during next week, making the event and the place live and fully vibrant;

… thank you to all those people who with small as well as huge gestures of solidarity who have or will contribute to sustain the wonderful cause of  Yoga Gives Back, aimed to raise awareness and funds about poverty and women conditions in India. All gestures have an impact, also the smallest ones!

… thanks to Simona Muratori for teaching a beautiful yoga class so to open the event and for having so wonderfully stood in for Alessandra, smashed by fever at 39° for a full week;

… thanks to Nicola Artico, eclectic artist and musician for his extraordinary skills of bringing us all ‘home’ through the sound of apparently just 4 notes;

… and thank you to 2 wonderful people in my life, Fabio and Manuela, for supporting me (bearing me) in all moments… especially those when I thought the pictures would never find their place on the walls on time!

IMAGES OF YOGA, INSTANTS OF LIFE

It was the beginning of 2012 and I was freaking out at leaving my company and my role after 13 years… I had no much else I could figure out of doing but I knew I needed time to be in the company of myself. First thing I did was to travel to India visiting and studying yoga in Mysore for 3 months, than I came back to Italy… still I didn’t know what would be next. Than just a few months and I flew to Mysore again, this time to practice at KPJAYI for additional 2 months. On my second trip, I was in the company of my camera. And than, just focusing on my daily ashtanga yoga practice, I started feeling all the pieces of the puzzle coming together to show me the way… I started taking pictures professionally again after 10 years and a new path has opened in front of me: yogascapes = yoga + landscape.

Here a small sample: Julia, ashtanga yoga teacher from Russia – in Mysore (India).

What do you think?

I’d love to hear from you!

  1. So awesome! I’m actually passionate about yoga & photography too, and created a website that blends them to help people see their beautiful inside & out. Check out http://www.GrowSoulbeautiful.com and let me know if you’d like to work together. If you have Instagram- we’re doing a daily pose challenge & have hundreds of people participating in a #yogaAday photo. Namaste!
