Sophie is a force. And a magical source of inspiration for those around her. When I first met Sophie, I mirrored her every move as best I could, mesmerized – she was teaching a flow yoga class at Lions Breath (www.lionsbreath.ca). It’s customary to set an intention for your practice – well, I couldn’t quite concentrate on mine, as all I wanted to do was get her in front of my lens.
We strolled through Legislative grounds, barefoot, looking for light. ‘What about this one,’ Sophie suggested, nodding at the massive tree I can’t name. ‘Sure,’ I said, looking around. Turning my gaze back towards where she stood moments earlier, I realized Sophie had gone. She was now in the tree! Amazed (and a little bit scared) at the poses she was so effortlessly creating, I jumped around, looking for the best angles. Seriously, wow.
And there was water. A whole lot of water. Remind me again why I wore jeans? Without a belt? Super fun. We got soaked. We also got goofy.
Hope you enjoy the images below… I’m so grateful to Sophie for being open and sharing her beautiful spirit with me. I can’t wait to share our next project before her quest to India…
Movement is an artform. Body is a temple. Namaste.
Om Nama Shivaya … I bow to the God Within!!
