This year I was able to be the photographic witness for The Groove Yoga Festival in Goa. Even though I usually like to do yoga myself, this time I tried to focus on taking pictures of the yoga teachers and participants in action. And all that in front of a remarkable setting: the beautiful Ashiyana Resort and Mandrem Beach. The single shootings with well known yoga teachers like Meghan Currie and Simon Borg-Olivier, who showed me their favourite yoga poses, were very special to me. I went with Daniel Scott and Liz Huntly directly to the beach. It was quiet a challenge to wait for the waves but not to drown in the sand. Expressive and energetic yoga picture were created in the water. Also very interesting was my time with Darren Austin Hall, who told me a lot about sound healing and simply has a wonderful attitude towards life. Exactly like the adorable singer songwriter Nely Daja, who accompanied the festival with her concerts and took some time to stand in front of my camera as well. I was very happy that some of the teachers and participants whom I photographed donated with their pictures to my project Love Photography. The proceeds from these portraits go to the solar project Imagine Light in the Amazon of Ecuador.
