Yogi: Amy Bench
Photographer: Sadie Aldridge
Location: Overlooking Mont Blanc, France
The photo shows yogini Amy Bench enjoying the spectacular views of one of Europe’s most famous mountains after a long hike — and yoga is the perfect way to stretch out after the uphill trek. “This is my favourite view of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe,” she tells OM. “It’s a four-hour hike to get here on the ridge of Roc de Tavaneuse, but it feels so magical. I love spending time in the mountains and experiencing nature at its best. My yoga practice is all outdoors in nature to show the beauty of what’s around us and the importance of protecting it.”
