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!

TEAM Tracy Rodriguez Photography is coming to Yogathon 2018!!

Yogathon 2013

As many of you know, I have been involved with an incredible nonprofit, Yoga Reaches Out, for the last six years. Each year I have committed to fundraising, to introducing the organization to more and more friends and family, to joining their committee, and, last year to forming my first ever team for New England Yogathon! This year, I am excited to say that I am again forming a team and I would love to have you on it!

Yogathon 2012

If you've been there you know, there is just something absolutely incredible about this day. The collective energy in the room of 1,000 giving, like-minded, beautiful people is palpable. I look forward to this day like a kid waiting for Christmas.

To give you a bit of background, each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $250 for Boston Children's Hospital. And through those donations along with sponsorships, I am so proud to say that this event has funded an incredible wellness center for the families and loved ones at Boston Children's Hospital, providing yoga, reiki, massage, and more.

Along with the personal goal that I set for myself each year of $1,000 in fundraising, I am adding to that the goal of gathering people to join Team Tracy Rodriguez Photography for a day of yoga with a purpose! So please mark your calendars for Sunday, April 29th, at Gillette Stadium (Foxboro, MA)!

Yogathon 2013

To say that Yoga Reaches Out has touched my heart would be an understatement. As many of you know, I have been involved with this incredible nonprofit for the last five years. Each year I have committed to fundraising, to introducing the organization to more and more friends and family, to joining their committee, and, of course, to photographing the big event, New England Yogathon!

Each year, I have looked to commit more, whether that's bringing in more people, or more fundraising or more awareness and I am so incredibly excited to share that ... drum roll ...

This year, I am creating my own team!

Along with the personal goal that I set for myself each year of $1,000 in fundraising, I am adding to that the goal of gathering at least 25 people to join Team Tracy Rodriguez Photography for a day of yoga with a purpose!

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.

Milton, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Houghton's Pond {w/ Theresa Laham}

One of my favorite parts of my job is that I am privileged to meet and connect with so many wonderful people. My community of yoga teachers and friends grows and grows each year and includes the kindest, most endearing, beautiful people. And featured in this blog post, Theresa Laham, is one of those amazing people. She is so incredibly kind and has the most infectious beautiful smile. I absolutely love photographing her! You may remember Theresa from my blog post last year highlighting some of the Universal Power Yoga Teacher Trainees at their Bird Park mini sessions. Theresa reached out to have a full shoot and this time we chose one of my favorite hidden gems, Houghton's Pond in Milton, MA, so that we could capture the beautiful water and fall foliage. I had such a great time and I am so excited to share these previews with you!

Hingham, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at The World's End {w/ Ali Cocci Smart}

I could not be more excited to share photographs from my yoga photo shoot last week with Ali Cocci Smart. Ali introduced me to The World's End in Hingham, MA, and wow wow wow, am I in love. If you love nature, hiking, beauty, or all of the above, I highly recommend taking a trip here. You feel as though you're on your own little oasis. And, as if that wasn't enough, Ali is the absolute sweetest girl to work with. She's absolutely stunning and while we had met briefly at the Barre & Soul Teacher Training Mini Sessions, I am so glad that she reached out to schedule a full shoot together so I could get to know her even better. I definitely recommend taking a class with this beautiful lady! You can find her teaching online teaching virtual classes for Barre & Soul and in person at the new Soul City Yoga in Lynn, MA! {Shout out to their grand opening on 10/17! I wish I was going to be in MA this weekend because they are having open studios both Saturday and Sunday!

Framingham, MA Yoga - NamasDay at Life Time Athletic Boston MetroWest - Click Through to See Event Photographs

One thing I absolutely love about being a Boston area yoga photographer is seeing new communities start up and grow all around me. And while the LifePower Yoga brand is certainly not new, they've just opened two new facilities right near me that I am thrilled about! Lifetime Athletic Westwood opened about a year ago and Lifetime Athletic Boston MetroWest in Framingham, MA opened just a couple months ago. I was introduced to the Life Power brand in perhaps the coolest way ever, by photographing their NamasDay event at MetroWest. NamasDay kicked off with an evening yoga class on the pool deck taught by two beautiful yoga teachers - Meredith Sills, the MetroWest LifePower Yoga Studio Manager, and Kristin Anderson, the Westwood LifePower Yoga Studio Manager. The class was high energy, tons of fun, and powerful, which all come through in the photographs! The night went on to include an awesome raffle of Manduka products, fun and mingling, yummy food, a NamasDay backdrop for fun photo posing and more!. I am so excited to have been part of the event and to now share the photographs with you! You can also click through to see the full album on Tracy Rodriguez Photography on Facebook for all of the quick and easy tagging, sharing, commenting fun. 

I was sad to have been previously booked for the Westwood NamasDay but it looked amazing so I hope to be involved in many more events in the future and NamasDay at these locations next year!
