I have had a hard time looking at full-length pictures of myself for most of my adult life. I have about two months of pictures where I was at a weight that I was happy with, but I have a hard time picking myself out of those because they just don't look like me. Last spring, I took a yoga self-portrait course with Anna-Guest Jelley and Vivienne McMaster. And it changed my life.
Yoga empowers me in a way that I can't explain. I look at these pictures of me - taken at my current weight - and I feel incredible.
I take a few portraits a week, but I really want to get back to a daily practice. Yoga self-portraits are a way that I remind myself that I am beautiful. That I am powerful. That I know who I am. You can see more of my portraits in my flickr album.
