This September, I flew to San Francisco for a 24-hour trip to shoot the cover of Yoga Journal's first issue of 2011.  It is a complete honor to have been asked to model, mainly because of the opportunity to put my whole spirit into a picture that could potentially introduce someone to yoga for the very first time. For this reason, I felt really blessed and hopeful during the photo shoot. I am totally grateful to everyone at Yoga Journal for their professionalism, talent and skills in orchestrating the shoot.  Stacey Rosenburg, Laura Christensen and Yoga Journal, Editor-in-Chief, Kaitlin Quitsgaard were so sweet to hang out at the shoot and even be in some of the pictures just to make the day so much more fun.  Kaitlin also grows a mean heirloom tomato!

I hope the cover serves to inspire, uplift and help attract lots of newbies to the amazing art form of practicing yoga.  Please share it with a friend!
