Marina Locke wowed us with these gorgeous beach asana portraits! We love the union of nature and the human body. Rocks, water, and the way the light and shadow highlight the yogi’s muscles- incredible. Marina is a wedding photographer, and while we’re fans of her beautiful love stories, we’re glad she takes the time out to shoot this asana project for herself.

Description: I am a mother and a photographer, long before either of those I was a yoga teacher.
Everyone does yoga now. It is so much a part of our everyday modern lives. We use mats, go to urban gyms, practise in enclosed, temperature controlled spaces, wearing co-ordinated fashion pieces.
I had this idea and this idea became my asana project. I wanted to take yoga back to nature, to the elements where I believe yoga was born. Back to basic elements, wood, rock, water. The beauty and flow of yoga, the still and the flow is something that never leaves you.
And now my little asana project has its own little home and when I’m not photographing weddings, kids and families I take these, just for me.
