Strength & Grace: You Asked For Men. Here’s 29 of Them.

Via on Apr 3, 2013

Between 2005 and 2009, I made over 1000 hand-altered Polaroids celebrating a poetic flowering of the West coast yoga tribe. This post is devoted to some of the men who stepped forward and offered up a pose and allowed themselves to be seen.

    How Beautiful! Always appreciate your posts, Robert. Thank you for sharing your gift.

  2. RAS says:

    Kudos to all — but special pranams to Erich Schiffmann, who has transformed so many lives (both male and female).

  3. Myrna says:

    Those are wonderful! Like the artistic approach and the examples of male yogis (at one time, way in the past, that's all there were) but now, in the gym where I teach, it's difficult to get men to do yoga!
