You arrange your collection of yoga blocks into a mini stage in the middle of the studio floor.

“Look, I am doing yoga! Tree pose—balance on my right leg! Now my left leg!”

I am photographing a community event at Yoga Deza, and you and your sister are tagging along and entertaining everyone for free. She is asleep against my chest in the carrier, and you are doing your best to share your energy quietly.

”Ahhh, I worked hard. Now I will rest.”

You scoot your platform closer to my feet and lie down on your back with a proud grin on your face. You look up at me for approval before closing your eyes.
