my secret place

Location: Torrevieja’s Salt Mine, Alicante, Spain In this photo, Vinyasa yoga teacher Esther Bobadilla is getting her feet wet in the waters of Torrevieja’s salt mine in Alicante, Spain. She tells OM that in times where the world is moving fast and we receive so much information in the space of just one day, it is necessary to go out and merge with nature, to be there, sit in silence, to pay attention to what surrounds you and, more importantly, what’s inside you. “I love enjoying the beauty of sunsets right here and just stare at it,” she says. “Sometimes we are required to just stop and do something simple, feeling in tune with nature and also within ourselves.

I loved how my body felt in the poses, especially after intensive dance training, while Savasana brought quiet to my then very busy mind, even if it was just for 10 minutes at the end of class. During my professional dance career, yoga was always the go-to-place where I felt centred; the dance industry was so fiercely competitive, and yoga the complete opposite (non competitive, non judgemental). I found myself feeling safe — mentally, physically and emotionally — on…
