17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Magical nature

I love to spend quality time with nature. Nature inspires me and teaches me artistic way of living. I feel my heartbeat is synchronizing with the heartbeat of the Earth and I find peace, relaxation, and serenity in nature. Especially, I love to practice yoga outdoors in the forest and by the water. I believe that yoga is a journey to recalibrate the biomechanics of the body, release tension through movement, increase strength, flexibility, and balance while harmonizing the body, mind and spirit through breath, postures, relaxation, and meditation.
