You saw our tips to Make Your Friends Think You’re a Food Photographer and today we’re here to talk to ya about Insta-YOGA!! We’ve put together a few of our favorite simple, stunning yoga poses that are easy to do and will spruce up your Instagram profile in no time! We even had our Yoga babe Stacey help us with our form ;) Pssst.. and more to come on that too!
First stop… Scenery!
Let’s be honest, we’re always in yoga pants nowadays so this makes it super accessible to bust a move when you come across that perfect backdrop. We love taking photos at the beach, during sunset, in front of a gorgeous art-inspired wall, you name it!
Strike a pose!
Extended Triangle ~ Utthita Trikonasana
Place your feet in heel to arch alignment. Keep both sides of your body long as you tilt your torso extending one arm toward the earth on the outside of your front foot and the other arm reaches toward the sky. Great way to show off those gorgeous locks too! ;)
Handstand ~ Adho Mukha Vrksasana
Place your palms on the ground shoulder width apart. Firm those beautiful biceps and triceps and kick up into that handstand! Best little trick to capture the shot is to lightly lean on a pillar or a wall. Arch you back a bit and bend one knee to show off your sexy curves!
Tripod Headstand ~ Sirsasana
Place the crown of your head on the earth. Place palms shoulder-width apart bending at a 90 degree angle. Be sure to press into your palms to evenly distribute your weight. Firm your core as you lift your toes towards the sky. (Hint… start with your knees on your triceps and then lift up from there.) For a lil extra, extend legs into an upside-down split!
Camel Pose – Ustrasana
Start standing on your knees. Slowly tilt your head back extending your heart towards the sky keeping your core strong until you’re able to reach your toes. Arch your upper back to really get into this heart-opener, keep your core strong and show off that booty too!
Hurdler Pose ~ Eka Pada Koundinyasana 2
Start in plank. Bring your right knee to your right tricep. Shift shoulders over fingertips and bend into your elbows. Kick your right foot forward as your weight shifts and you point your left toe up and back behind you.
We see this pose ALL OVER Instagram and we’re absolutely in love with it. The beautiful lines and structure of this pose have us in awe, fit for a gorgeous goddess like you! Cross your ankles and kick your heels out. Bend deeply in your knees and tilt forward crossing at your forearms. Make sure your arms cross in the space between your knees.
Most importantly… have FUN!!!
Check out some of our fave filtering tips here and even hashtag the sanskrit to be super-pro!! Last but certainly not least, top off your breathtaking post with a quote that speaks to you in the moment!! ;)
