Urdhva Dhanurasana drop back by Lauren Tober

Urdhva Dhanurasana drop back by 

A yoga student dropping back into urdhva dhanurasana at the Sri Patanjala Yogashala, Jaganmohan Palace Circle in Mysore, India.

Krishnamacharya once taught BNS Iyengar (who now runs the shala), Pattahbi Jois, Indra Devi, TKV Desikachar and many others in this yogashala. It’s an amazing place to practice in.

This room is the one designated for Indian men to practice in.


Part of the Sri Patanjala Yogashala series

    i just LOVE that motion blur in contrast to the stillness of the meditator.

  • Thanks for pointing that out!

    a great image and perfect timing for a superb composition, also managing to get all figures clear of each other… the more i look at it, the more i find this shot quite amazing and although my first thought was that the blur of the room itself was a distraction and probably accidental, i now think it completes the atmosphere, mood, subject matter, and importantly, the impact of the picture as a whole… great done lauren

  • Thanks for your detailed comments Carol. It was a dark room, and very difficult to photograph, but at the same time very atmospheric. Thanks again.
