Robert Sturman is a visual artist and dedicated yoga practitioner. His work has increasingly focused on capturing the timeless grace embodied mindfulness of asana. Sturman’s portraits, whether set in the lively streets of Manhattan, the expansiveness of Malibu's beaches and canyons, the timeless elegance of Walden's New England, or the bleakness of San Quentin Prison, remind us that there is beauty everywhere.
He has done incredible work capturing the essence of this practice in a beautiful, remarkable way. He is such a wise sage and I feel so honored to be his friend and have him be part of this community.
