Sure, I'm as concerned about the future of the glaciers in Glacier National Park (and the people and animals that depend on that water for their lives), as many of you are, but while the glaciers are melting, other people are staying healthy by using the splendor, serenity and unspoiled vistas as a place to connect to nature.
Yoga is believed to be a connecting activity between the body, the earth, and the creator. On a recent hike in Glacier National Park with yoga expert a long time friend yoga instructor Robin Bergman-Martin, and her good friend, yoga instructor Liz Doyle, I had a chance to see just how these masters of yoga craft themselves into artful poses amidst the shapes and lines of the most beautiful places on earth, Glacier National Park.
Here's a few yoga photographs from our adventure . . .

After watching these two masters, I have a completely new appreciation for the art and science of yoga.
