The most inspiring yoga photos speak for themselves. Check out Yoga Journalâ€™s top pics for inspiring Instagram accounts.
If thereâ€™s one social media platform out there responsible for constantly distracting me, itâ€™s Instagram. With everything from professional food photography and ridiculous memes, to informative videos and hilarious boomerangs, thereâ€™s something for everyone to, well, get sucked in. For me, Instagram offers endless yoga inspirationâ€”and luckily, the distraction is usually a positive one.
For so many yogis posting on Instagram, creating beautiful shapes in front of beautiful backdrops is the norm. Yet while I appreciate a great Dancerâ€™s Pose in front of a Balinese waterfall as much as the next girl, I tend to focus on whatâ€™s below the picture: the caption. What I zoom in on is much more than just a stunning photograph; I love it when yoga teachers and practitioners share their dharma talks, write inspiring words of wisdom, and speak to an important cause. Take @yoga_girl, Rachel Brathen, for example, who built her 2 million followers through Instagram posts, stories, and creation of the hashtag #yogaeverydamnday, which includes over 4 million posts from yogis around the world.
So, whether youâ€™re a poster, scroller, or both, hereâ€™s a little Instagram yoga inspiration that moved me this week. Hereâ€™s hoping it inspires you, too.
