The famous yoga photographer shares his thoughts on how to be more mindful when taking asana images and using your camera to give back.
Take a glimpse into Robert Sturman’s creative process. Here, he shares his top 6 tips for mindful living and being more intentional when you’re behind the camera.
1. Start your day with yoga and get outdoors.
“No matter where I am in the world or what time I fall asleep, I awaken each day just before the sun rises and sit quietly for 30 minutes. I’m not quite in the world yet, but I feel deeply present and grounded. It’s an effortless time for meditation and creative exploration. I love to practice asana sometime mid-morning. Yoga clears out what’s unnecessary and allows me to begin again. On the days I’m not attending a class, I’ll spend quiet time in nature with my dog, Chai—being silent at the park, in the mountains, or at the beach always helps me feel alive and full of gratitude.”
