Kathleen Grimbly poses in Bellingham Bay at Marine Park on August 15, 2011. Grimbly teaches yoga classes for kayakers utilizing stretches both on land and in the water. She started practicing yoga after suffering from four rear-end collision car accidents. “Yoga became therapeutic, but also a counterbalance in my life,” Grimbly said.
Last week I was on assignment for The Bellingham Herald. Covering daily assignments and the local fair was good change of pace. Here is a portrait I shot of Kathleen Grimbly. She teaches yoga techniques that are useful for kayakers both in and out of the water.
