These images were captured before March 2020, and were not taken during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It was a pleasure to pair up with Bonny Chipman and her studio at Yoga NW to create a collection of inclusive yoga stock photos featuring folks with a wide variety of body sizes, ethnic backgrounds, skin colors, and mobility needs.
Here’s a little bit about Yoga NW: “At Yoga NW, our mission is to create a body positive, inclusive, and welcoming environment where yoga is accessible to all. We strive to create a healing and loving space where EVERYONE is welcome, valued, and celebrated. We are a quaint community studio, offering intimate class sizes, allowing us to provide you with more individualized attention. Our compassionate teachers are here to guide you in your yoga practice in a way that is safe and beneficial. We invite you to join us, just as you are, in this exploration we call yoga!”
