Yoga for Photographers: Photography and Mindfulness

Course Code: 21MCEYG005

Dates: July 30, 2021

Meets: F from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM ET

Location: Online Zoom Classroom

Summer Tuition: $65

In this course, students learn the connection between photography and mindfulness through the photographic works of Frederick Sommer, Minor White, Elena Volkova, and Jill Fannon, who were guided by a variety of intellectual, spiritual, and philosophical theories. In our yoga practice, we explore extension postures, which are poses that maximize vertebral space and elongate the spine. In Hatha Yoga, the spine is said to be the inner doorway to our highest self. Extension postures help to “stir up” the energy around the spine and lock it in place; awaken our highest, deeper, true self; and access our intuition. We also explore yogic breathwork techniques such as Alternate Nostril Breathing to calm the nervous system.

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.
