Being invited to join Regina from Yoga Orchid at her Sussex retreat at Florence House in Seaford was such a pleasure. I really needed it and I was looking forward to being involved in her workshop on the Saturday as well as being her yoga photographer during her practice.
Such a stunning lady and an inspiring teacher, we were led through some of the most opening and surrendering poses Ive ever experienced during her class, incorporating both the feeling of strength and lightness to the body. The narrative during her classes creating a calming influence and a reminder that there was someone there to trust and lean on if you felt insecure at any point within your body.
Regina has a delicate “mat talk” with her students, lightly touching them to remind them where and how their bodies could be better placed in their poses, coaxing the student and enticing them into asanas that both open them to a new physical well-being and creating confidence to the well travelled yogi and newbie alike.
Shooting Regina during her practice and also her break, we had fun. Always modest, always true and absolutely always stunning.
You’re an inspiration to me both as a yogi and as a photographer. Anytime Regina. x
