This has been a pretty hard week news wise. I’ve been covering vigils in honor of the Orlando shooting all week which hasn’t left much room for positivity. When I heard about a yoga class that involved kittens, I was all over it. I definitely wanted to photograph something a bit more upbeat that makes people smile, even if it was for only an hour.
I’ve never done yoga. I own a yoga ball that I sometimes lay across to crack my back. I own a pair of yoga pants for when I have to go out in public and sweatpants aren’t acceptable attire. I’ve never been able to touch my toes. However, kittens were involved so to a yoga class I went. I also own a cat, a Persian rescue named Cassyus. She sometimes poops in her own fur and pees in my suitcase when I leave, but I love her still.
Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I loved creating them.
Special thanks to M.Power Yoga and Jermain Keene’s 5pm class for allowing me to photograph you. It was a nice break from the typical news I often photograph.
