My place

Yogi: Heather Vencill
Photographer: Tom Fenske
Location: Mt Jefferson Wilderness, USA

The photo shows yogini Heather Vencill in the rugged wilderness of Oregon, in the north-western United States. The Mount Jefferson Wilderness is a wilderness area located on and around Mount Jefferson in the central Cascade Range of Oregon. It’s a place with meaning and significance for a local girl like Vencill. “Growing up in Oregon, the mountains have always been a place of peace and magnitude,” she tells OM. “Being able to be outdoors in a place of such incredible beauty makes my practice that much more meaningful to me while inspiring me to move grander, reach farther and be calmer.”
