I had a chance to visit the Omega Institute on a recent trip to New York. I was really impressed with its commitment to sustainable living, quality of life for all people and animals and its positive energy. While there, I had the opportunity to take part in a yoga teacher training class with author, yogi and spiritual teacher Beryl Bender Birch. Beryl has been a mentor to many practising yoga teachers around the world and I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph her class at the Omega Institute. The link to the full gallery can be found here. More information on Beryl and her training, teacher certification and workshops can be found at www.power-yoga.com.
