Photo walks encourage us to explore with our eyes and all of our senses, challenge us to see things in a new light, and empower us make work that is reflective of this process. Influenced by the photographic work of Vivian Maier, Rinzi Ruiz, Bryan Formhals, and Isaiah Winters, students in this class learn the art of creative roaming and the importance of maintaining a daily photography practice while documenting their surroundings. Our yoga practice is focused on forward folds, which are relaxing and calming, and exhale breathing. Combining these two activities, we refocus into the present moment and see things from a new perspective. With a chill and calm outlook, you will be ready to capture the things around you with your camera that you may otherwise miss.

Faculty Bio

How to prepare for yoga practice: It is recommended that students have a yoga mat, water bottle and loose fitting clothes/yoga tights. Create an environment free of distractions. Yoga requires a tremendous amount of focus and concentration to progress in the poses and avoid injury. Come to class on an empty stomach - avoid eating 1-2 hours prior to class. Drink a lot of water, stay hydrated. Don’t “muscle” into a pose, honor your body and what feels good. Please inform your instructor of any injuries or areas of tightness so modifications can be given. Be patient, have an open mind and practice. Please make sure to sign the yoga waiver and return it to [email protected] prior to the first session.
