I was following John Friend’s twittering and came across a link to this shot. Twitpic has several other shots of massed yogis in formation. Awe-inspiring gatherings that project channeled prana. Friend is on tour, currently in Canada, putting on workshops for Anusara yoga teachers.
As a hack photographer, I am fascinated by shots of yoga practice, both the group sync and the individual pose. John — or his people — have many opportunities. It’s a lot harder than it looks because the photographer has to capture the instance of grace in poor, indoor lighting, and frequently in movement.
