My secret place - Amy Bench

My place

Yogi: Amy Bench
Photographer: Sadie Aldridge
Location: Lac de Joux Plane, Morzine, French Alps

The photo shows yogini Amy Bench enjoying the beautiful French Alps, where she now lives. “This place is where I’m lucky enough to call home,” she tells OM. “I’m so in awe of the natural beauty here that I couldn’t bring myself to leave!” Through her teaching yoga online, she can also share this beautiful location and its natural, sedate pace of life, with the rest of the world. “Yoga shows us how we can slow down our lives and show gratitude towards the wonderful world we live in. My aim with yoga is to help people but also help the planet and through outdoor yoga classes I hope to inspire people to live a more eco-sustainable life.”
