Hot Yoga Photo Shoot!

I'm not kidding when I say "Hot Yoga."  Bikram Yoga is performed at 105 degrees in the studio, which gives the Yogi's added benefit and flexibility.  I don't think they ever got the room up to the highest temperature, but 4 hours in a hot room doing photography meant that I was completely exhausted and soaked by the end.  We met at the Lincoln Park Bikram Yoga studio in Chicago, and did some head shots of the instructors, some individual shots on a white backdrop, and some group shots.  I have a ton of images to get through, but have posted a few on my website.

Now, for the actual Yoga.  Not many photographers are going to turn down the opportunity to take pictures of attractive young yoga professionals.  I think that the white backdrop created a great opportunity to focus on the Yoga poses and positions.

Additional Pictures will be posted here
