I want to capture yoga, and those who practice it, in all its forms. That's why I'm announcing the "I Am A Yogi" Instagram celebration.
Whether you're a CEO, serving a life sentence in prison, living with cerebral palsy, living with breast cancer, a full-figured human being, a burn victim, living with HIV, living at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, 95 years old, or are just plain human, I invite you to post a picture on Instagram — just one per person, please! — and say a little something about yourself. Use the hashtag #iamayogicelebration and tag @robertsturman any time through the end of September. You could inspire me to do a shoot with you.
Cami Cote, the model featured in the following photos, helps me kick things off by describing what drove her to do this incredible shoot with me: "I wanted to do this project to inspire people. I intended to make a powerful statement by demonstrating that even though I am a full-figured woman, I am strong and capable. I practice and teach yoga. This path isn't easy; it takes dedication, hard work and love. Yoga has changed my life in every possible way for the better."
