Our photographer-yogi Shintaro (IG: @shinaplus) will be at the retreat, practicing yoga and taking photos for us. Group photos will be shared with you afterwards. For an additional ¥2,000 you have the option to have five individual photos taken during your practice at the retreat. You will pay this amount directly to Shintaro on the retreat day. If you are interested, please leave a note during your booking. This is a great price for photos taken by a professional photographer. We have worked with Shintaro many times for our yoga sessions and always loved his photos. Since he is also a passionate yogi, he really knows the good angles for yoga photos. Take this opportunity to keep the memories of your blissed yoga moments.
