“Samskara saksat karanat purvajati jnanam. Through sustained focus and meditation on our patterns, habits, and conditioning, we gain knowledge and understanding of our past and how we can change the patterns that aren’t serving us to live more freely and fully.” ~ Yoga Sutra III.18
I have been DYING to share this Malibu Beach Yoga shoot for weeks! Each of those things alone is pretty cool, but you put them all together and it’s so so beautiful. I met this gorgeous lady through Facebook and she wanted to do some beach yoga for her branding and social media. After looking through her inspiration photos, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
We met at Leo Carrillo Beach (after some automotive issues, but I won’t get into that! lol) and were created by beautiful blue waters and a stretch of beach all to ourselves. It was just a little before sunset which created to most gorgeous light. Also, This girl’s yoga skills were seriously incredible. Mine and Xander’s jaws were on the sand, because of how beautiful her yoga exercises were.
We started the session in her super cute white bikini, which complimented her tan and the blue water so well. Unfortunately, we got a little too adventurous and were greeted by a huge wave of the tide coming in. It took her by surprise but made a really cool shot!
After we finished on the beach near the water, we walked over to some cliffs overlooking the ocean. The view was breathtaking. As the sunset went down, everything came into place and we made some beautiful photos.
Xander and I had so much fun at this shoot and can’t wait to photograph another yogi soon!
