What drives you to do what you do? For me – it’s empowerment. That’s what it’s all about – empowering small business owners with great images that give them the confidence to show up for their businesses. And shooting yoga photography in Frankfurt is one of the most empowering jobs I do.

Gorgeous yoga teacher Danila here is one of the most empowering people I know.

As a Frankfurt brand photographer, it has been a dream of mine to photograph a yoga teacher. So when Danila came my way, I just had to grab the opportunity.

Danila is the fabulous face behind Yoga Together is Nice. She is a yoga teacher and personal yoga trainer who is chock full of heart.

She’s so passionate about what she does and about sharing the beauty/benefits of yoga with others. She teaches group classes (in-person and online), and offers one-to-one personal training too.

Her enthusiasm is infectious and her dynamic approach is inspiring.

 

Yoga photography in Frankfurt

 

You wouldn’t know it, but it was quite a chilly morning on the day of our shoot. It was the last days before the really cold weather really kicked in. Danila was a total pro though and didn’t let it bother her one bit!

And come on – don’t you just LOVE her butterfly yoga pants?! They’re awesome!

We chose Bad Homburg’s Kurpark as the location for the half-day shoot – there are so many gorgeous backdrops here that we had to utilise them. And thankfully there were still a few flowers around.

Danila some individual shots of her doing yoga poses, but also shots of her in a teaching capacity. So she brought along her partner Christian to help out with those.

 

Talented yoga teacher

 

She is such a patient and understanding teacher, plus she has some amazing yoga skills herself. Just look at those splits – in not very warm temperatures too! We were so lucky the sun was shining to ease the chill a little!

Danila is committed to continually improving her own yoga practice, as well as helping others improve theirs – she often trains as much as 6 hours a day!

These are just a few of my favourite images from the shoot, but there are sooo many more!

This is what Danila had to say about our session:

“I had a 3-hour session with Clare to promote my job as yoga teacher and personal trainer.

It took me a while to find the right photographer – matching the values I truly believe in: be natural and true. With Clare I found both, and investing time with her was an amazing, unforgettable experience.

I felt totally at ease with her during the shoot. Clare was able to choose the best place, catch the right light, and the emotions coming up during each pose.

Highly recommended if you are looking to step up to the next level with your business. Grazie Clare.”

Thank you Danila for choosing me to photograph you. You are an inspiration and I look forward to watching your business grow.
