This photo collage is the most commented photo of the year (posted on the 28th of January). ❤ I asked you which one of this photos was your favorite (1-top left and 9-bottom right) and you commented 2197 times. Your favorites were number 5 and 7. ❤ Mine.. "If I have to choose one, it would be the middle one, number 5. It was one of my first photos and it encouraged my feelings about this account. It made me understand even more about the beauty of the lines a human body can make and the shapes that can be created." ❤ I'm looking back this week at some of my photos from this year. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.😊

Gratitude for this skin, this body. For the imperfections and limitations, that teach and humble me. For the strength and the softness. For the vessel of experience, the imprints proof of living. It's good to be here.

My photo for @nude_yogagirl who is inspiring with #NYGyoga to love the skin we are in. No shame. No judgement. No social constraints. Our bodies are a work of art. Every shape, age and color. Not one is the same as the other. And every one is beautiful in their own way. #loveyourbody #nudeyoga #nakedyoga #lotus #yogalotus #yoga #yogaart #photography #photographyart #body #humanbody #yogabody #nudeart #womanbody #love #selflove

Feeling artsy. I've been trying to get back into yoga, but am struggling to find time. I usually do yoga in the morning, but with the changing of seasons, early AM's are getting harder and harder! How do you early birds do it? Post inspired by @nude_yogagirl. . . . #yoga #health #fitness #fitspo #yogi #wellness #yogamotivation #art #motivation #NYGyoga
