Taking images of people holding an intention has been a privilege, often a humbling one and requires skilful holding and caretaking - something I am learning more about as I go on. There is the delicate art of when and how I intervene and how I steer the shoot. It isn't only about what I want to see; it's about what wants to be seen.

So it is already mid-way through January 2016 and it feels as though I have not stopped to draw breath. I am sure I'm not the only one. Just after Christmas a good friend sadly passed away. Nothing I know of shows quite how the world keeps going on - as clearly as death does.

This, I have decided, is the year for change. This is the year that I will have sex more than three times, fall outrageously in love, stop eating chocolate as a pre-bed snack and, obviously, have less than 12% of body fat. However for now whist I decide where to start we best have a celebratory drink, although best make mine a slimline!

If any of these occurrences had been done by a stranger or a random club-goer I would probably have shouted or slapped or let the Irish rage bubbling up inside erupt. Instead I kept quiet and for the most part, laughed it off. So as not to cause unnecessary drama amongst friendships or to maintain a polite-ish persona.

I teach yoga to help people find a sense of calm in the chaos, to get fit and feel better about themselves and to see things differently. Appreciation and gratitude are as much a part of yoga as the postures, breathing and your mat which is why this little insight has resonated so much with me.
