Lenox, MA Yoga Mini Sessions at Kripalu {w/ Jacqui Bonwell Teacher Trainees}

Last month, I had the unique opportunity to attend a week long yoga retreat at Kripalu out in Lenox, MA to kick off my 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training with Jacqui Bonwell. With no sessions planned, I couldn’t leave my cameras at home for such a scenic location. So I was thrilled when so many yogis were up for doing some impromptu sunrise yoga mini sessions. Thanks for getting up extra early with me, guys! I loved it and can’t wait to do more with y’all! Enjoy!

Shout out to Emily, Charlene, Kat, Gabby, Diana, Kim, Tristan, Sherry, Ann, Michelle and of course, our teacher, Jacqui! You can see Jacqui’s session here.

Lenox, MA Yoga Mini Session at Kripalu {w/ Jacqui Bonwell}

When the “spiritual mother of New England” Jacqui Bonwell posted that she would be holding another advanced yoga teacher training, I jumped onboard and, with a pretty full plate, I decided to add on something just for me. We kicked off our 300 hour last month with a week at Kripalu. I’m still floating. It was heavenly. And, I was honored to photograph my teacher for a mini yoga session one morning on the beautiful, scenic grounds. Enjoy!

PS. The next morning, I met with several more of my fellow yogis for more minis so stay tuned for that post coming soon!

Lexington, MA Barre & Yoga Photo Shoot {w/ Lexington Power Yoga}

I absolutely love working with the team at Lexington Power Yoga and was psyched to photograph their amazing teachers once again for a day of barre and yoga mini sessions. A big thanks to Courtney, Jen, Lisa, Samantha, Ewa, Jennifer, Linda, Jillian, and her beautiful little ones who joined in as well! I've highlighted a few previews from each for you all to enjoy.

Milton, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Houghton's Pond {W/ Melissa Dixey}

I know what you're thinking ... well, Amanda Dixey's yoga photo shoot, featured in my earlier blog post today, looks pretty similar to this one here. That's because Amanda brought her sister Melissa to Houghton's Pond with us to capture some yoga photographs as well. It was so much fun to work with these beautiful sisters and capture some images for their new journey as yoga teachers.

Amanda and Melissa both graduated from Barefoot Yoga Shala's 200 hour yoga teacher training in May. Here's a huge congratulations to them, and some previews below for you to enjoy!

Lexington, MA Barre & Yoga Photo Shoot {w/ Lexington Power Yoga}

I absolutely love working with the team at Lexington Power Yoga and was psyched to photograph their amazing teachers once again for a day of barre and yoga mini sessions. I've highlighted a few previews from each for you all to enjoy.

You can join the LPY team in their 200 hour teacher training starting later this month! More information can be found here: LPY 200 hour teacher training.

As a side note, I feel incredibly lucky that Boston has such a strong yoga community. Traveling from studio to studio, I recognize both how unique each space is and at the same time how we are all one big collective community. I met Lorraine Shedoudi, co-owner of LPY {and first in the highlights below} back in 2011 when she led my 200 hour yoga teacher training at Prana Power Yoga in Cambridge and I feel so lucky to have stayed in touch with her ever since. I'll never forget the first morning meditation {my first ever meditation} and how much the next 8 weeks truly changed my life. Okay, enough of my yoga community gushing ... enjoy!

Teacher Feature: Kathryn Ford Richter

Back in August, I met the lovely Kathryn Ford Richter, a life and wellness coach, essential oils educator, yoga teacher and nurse. {Yes, she really does it all!}

With the goal of creating some beautiful photographs for her professional website, we went over to Houghton's Pond in Milton, MA and had an absolute blast shooting all over the park. Kathryn even went on the water with her Stand Up Paddle Board which was pretty spectacular to photograph! If you missed it, you can check out the blog I originally posted about her yoga and branding photo shoot and I am now so pleased to share her new website with all of you!

Kathryn is a phenomenal life coach and I highly recommend checking out her small group program launching this January. This program is perfect for those of you who set out to make New Year's Resolutions every year yet struggle to make them stick. Kathryn will work with you to set goals, look at what's holding you back and give you the tools needed to create lasting change. She limits this group to four people so sign up today!

Below are a sampling of pages. I encourage you to check out more at www.kathrynfordrichter.com. You can also follow her business on Facebook and Instagram.

Have you launched a website, Instagram profile, or other marketing material featuring images from our photo shoots? If so, I'd be happy to shout out your stuff! Shoot me an email and let me know what you'd like featured.

I know firsthand that networking and referrals are such a strong part of any small business so the more interconnected client and audience relationship building I can do, the better. Making connections is one of my favorite parts of the Tracy Rodriguez Photography Community.
