Kapotasana - Leena Kinger
Photographer: Ram Kumar

The Story:
Leena is currently studying in Mysore. These photos were taken at her residence in Chennai, India. They were taken for a feature article (urban yogi's) in India Today, a fortnight magazine. Having been a model and a performer, she can appreciate the beauty of the photography, but believes that with yoga, it is different. "I'd like to keep that for me, its a very personal expierence, almost like a meditation itself...and not a performance! How would you like it if your observed during your meditation? Photos are taken only IF needed. Having said that I must add that viewing my asana pictures as a spectator later has given me insights to my own practice."
