Dawn Scorpion

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by W Chang

A young man practises yoga just before dawn on a silent beach on Paradise Island. His flexibility combines with a still mind to achieve the complete Scorpion pose, one of the most difficult asanas. Practising pre-dawn is the most conducive time of the day to successful yoga and meditative practice.

Location: Paradise Island, Bahamas
