Student Spotlight: Zachary Lange

Zach is our Student Spotlight for December. He’s been practicing with Maitri since May 2017. When he’s not on his mat he’s working within the field of his passion as a photographer. He recently did two photo shoots for the Maitri teachers and we all had a great time!

Maitri Yoga: Tell us a little about yourself.

Zachary: I am a Colorado native with a passion for photography and cinema that I developed in my teens.  I hadn’t done much professionally with my photography until 2015 when I started my own Photography business named Lazy Eye Photography.

M: How does your yoga practice benefit your career/home life and what keeps you committed to your practice?

I started my practice in May of 2017 and attend class three to four times a week as well as practice at home.  I came to Maitri Yoga to help with headaches and backaches caused by my scoliosis.  I have double curvature scoliosis so any backbend helps me unkink my back.  Yoga has also helped me deal with my anxiety.  So for me Yoga has brought energy and comfort.

M: What is your favorite yoga pose and why?

My favorite pose keeps changing but my current favorite is Crow pose.  I have been trying to include more inversions in my practice and crow pose feels really good on my upper back.  Not to mention it is challenging which I enjoy and it’s a good core workout.

M: What are some highlights happening in your life right now?

Currently I’m working on a photography project for Maitri Yoga to update their photos and website, but during the day I supervise the photography department of a local car dealership.  You can view a sample of my photography at lazyeyephotography.com.
