Sunsay Snap: Yoga at El Morro

Yoga at El Morro |

Half lotus at Castillo San Felipe del Morro (El Morro) in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Castillo San Felipe del Morro, also known as El Morro sits at the mouth of San Juan Bay and was built to protect the city from attacks from the sea. Construction began in 1539 and additions were continually added over the next 400 years. A handful of sentry posts, known as garitas, dot the perimeter and if you’ve ever seen any tourism images for Puerto Rico you know they’re practically a national symbol. I knew that if I was going to add another yoga photo to my collection having a garita in the picture would be best. I managed to find a quiet spot and a ledge on the lighthouse that sits atop the fort.

Half lotus seems to be my go-to for these situations. Can you guys recommend some other seated poses I can get into quickly while my camera’s counting down the timer? Maybe I should aim for Ardha Matsyendrasana (Half Lord of the Fishes) next time?
