These Instagram yogis are the accounts you definitely need to be following if you need some inspiration in your life! Here are our faves!
Erin was the first yogi that I discovered on Instagram. It is safe to say before her my only exposure to yoga was my mom doing downward dog in our living room. But watching Erin effortlessly flow between handstands, asanas, and arm balances was like watching a yoga ballet! I had never seen anything like it! She inspired me to take risks on the mat, and I am sure she can do the same for you! Just don’t make my same mistakes I did and immediately try for the hardest thing you see, you will fall on your face!
Bahayogi is an Instagram Yogi based out of the Caribbean, so naturally her feed is chalked full of gorgeous beachy yoga shots! Aside from her badass beach side flows, Bahayogi is open and honest about her body, her sexuality, her sensuality, and promotes a constant message of self love! She is also vividly candid about how being in touch with her sensuality, is NOT an open invitation for an endless stream of dick pics in her dms!
Hannah or gypsyon_ as she is known to her Instagram followers, is one seriously strong Instagram yogi! Her balance and control while gracefully gliding into inversions and arm balances is the stuff of dreams. Add in another human to that mix and you will be in awe at the acro yoga she and her boyfriend Pablo do on the regular. It will make you want to drag your own partner onto the mat or book a flight to nearest Acro fest!
Sunitha is an Instagram yogi and yoga instructor who truly cares about all of her students. Aside from posting awesome pictures of her doing yoga, she is adamant on sharing “how to” tutorials that show her Instagram followers how to progress in our practice and avoid making injury causing mistakes. She also has her Instagram stories hella organized so that you can find inspiration whenever you need it, be a tutorial, workshop, class, or just sharing her thoughts.
When I first stumbled on Lamise’s page, my initial thought was “damn she is good”! But Lamise is not only inspirational in her postures and flows, she is often trying to inspire her instagram followers with their words as well. In her ongoing #LettersbyLamise she shares her thoughts on life, fear, anxiety, and so much more. Go to her page for the jaw dropping photos, and stay for her kind insightful words.
When I think of grace one yogi comes to my mind: aminahtaha. I cannot tell you how many of her posts I have saved to try and replicate later in my own practice, modified of course! She is also remarkably candid about her yoga journey after her became a mom. She was patient with her body and eased back into her practice. Upon seeing her on Instagram you may think, wait that’s easing into it!? But mom or not, you can gain some serious inspiration from this Instagram yogi!
No shade to anyone else, but Jessica Olie is hands down one of my favorite Instagram Yogis. She is often so open and willing to share some of the most deep and painful aspects of her life that others would chose to shy away from. She also knows how to lighten things up as well with her funny and causal Instagram stories. As cheesy as it sounds, following Jessica Olie feels like your following your friend. She is a kind person who seems truly genuine, oh and her yoga practice is pretty awesome too!
Nayitavp is not only a strong and graceful Instagram yogi, but she is also a pretty talented dancer as well. Following her feed constantly makes you want yo get off the couch and get moving, whether onto your mat, or on the dance floor. She is also open in sharing her tips on veganism, friendship, relationships, and self love. And for an added bonus, during the month of October she posts some pretty awesome throwback pics of her doing yoga in all her old Halloween costumes, they do not disappoint.
Findingmorgantyler, or simply Morgan, has an amazing feed, mixed with eloquent yoga flows, insane arm balances, and inversions, and posts simply about her day to day life. She also initiates a true dialogue on anxiety, abuse, and putting yourself first always! There is bounds of inspiration to be found on this Instagram yogis page! And as an added bonus, she also has three of the most adorable furry friends I have ever seen!
Another acro yoga duo to aspire to! These two are insanely talented, not to mention adorable together! Their joint instagram yogi account can make even the most seasoned yogi awestruck. While they are constantly displaying their insane acro postures, they also include a steady stream of progress pics and tutorials. It is easy to get caught up in how seemingly perfect all of these Instagram yogis are in their perfect and strong postures. But they all started out just like us! Liz and Max use their feed to remind others that anything is achievable with practice!
