My loving friend Melanie photographed each teacher at the Bodhi Tree to their favourite sutra, here is the one she did for me, authentically capturing the aesthetic of asana. You can visit her website @ http://www.pranamomma.ca

Within the mantra of OM, the asana practice is overexposed by a sound, teaching forever only light. (Exposure: 15 & 8 sec at f / 22 Focal Length: 24 mm ISO: 100)

"Thanks Alex! Love it!!! I got off the plane in Montreal and saw it on my phone already posted on Facebook. Clearly people are excited about it. I cannot thank you enough for all the love and effort that you put into this video. It is such a wonderful gift. I consider you one of the members of our little yoga family. Your shining light will be missed.”
