Interview: Rhythm’s Marc Llewellyn Marc Explains The Burleigh Heads Surf Culture

W14-Polaroid011

SWELL: Walk us through a typical day working at Rhythm in Burleigh?
Marc: The boys normally have a little pre-work surf and the girls will do their pilates, yoga, walks or swims. A lot of us meet for coffee at Canteen then head into the office.

Yoga is a great way to help strengthen and tone your body. What sets yoga apart from other forms of exercise is the use of breath, awareness of the body and intention. Before you begin, set a clear intention for your practice. Use this intention to draw strength from during the challenging moments you may face. As you practice, use your breath to help you with the movements. Vinyasa, is a form of yoga that links breath to movement. Linking breath and movement not only helps your body move more smoothly through the postures, but it also has a very calming effect on your mind. This allows you to move with focus and ease.

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
To add movement in a photo, I previously suggested using a long skirt or a sarong. This time, I challenge you to use props from the natural environment. For example, sand can create a really cool effect in a photo. Have your model scoop as much sand as possible in their hands and twirl it around playfully.
