“Yoga and the City” Photo-project
Living in a big city it’s very easy to loose yourself in the constant running after some imaginary values and dreams that don’t even belong to us. Big cities – are like a melting pot of everyone and everything, where we face a mix of cultures, traditions, lifestyles, opinions and values.
How to stay true to yourself in this huge ocean of thoughts and ideas? One has to know who he or she really is. One also has to be really strong and should never stop his spiritual growth. This is what I wanted to reflect in my project.
More than one year ago I went on a round-the-world trip, during which I met yogis around the world and took pictures in different cities and countries. That’s how I start to work on my photo project “Yoga and the city”.
Through my project “Yoga and the City” I wanted to show people who are committed to yoga philosophy and yoga lifestyle in the big cities, people, who live in the middle of a hustle, but manage to maintain their harmony and happiness. It doesn’t matter what is surrounding you. What really matters – is how you look at everything around you.
Possibly, when people see my images, they will decide to start doing yoga, or will try meditation. Maybe someone will quit the job they don’t like and finally start doing something they were dreaming about for a long time, or will go on the long journey.
Yoga and the City – combines art, spirituality and fitness. It is a reflection of a person’s strength and power. Strength to overcome adversities and to find your balance while living in a fast paced environment. Yoga – is a way to find alignment with your true self, to become closer to your spiritual core.
My advice to all people out there – to follow their path and their soul calling. To do what they really love, and to do it with passion.
We live in a beautiful and unique world, and we shouldn’t lose ourselves in the every day routine and hustle, but to keep enjoying this life and every moment of it. This is what my project is all about.
