My place

Yogi: Mario Austin
Photographer: Spencer Bentley
Location: Freedom Park, Rosslyn, VA, USA

The image shows yogi, Mario Austin, in Freedom Park, a two-block[1]long elevated park, originally intended as a commuter path. Now, the plaza, with its benches, gardens, and trees, is a place of quiet retreat for residents and workers alike. “I was drawn to this particular space because of its beautiful greenery and natural beauty. Particularly, there are so many unique shapes throughout the location that complement various asanas. This special place is in the heart of the Washington Metropolitan area, and it brings many different elements together for everyday life.”
