Wow- what an amazing month it has been for our October Yoga Instagram Challenge! There are over 7,000 photos tagged with #yogaAday since we started & I’m blown away by the talented photographers & amazing yogi that we have met in the last few weeks.
From dogs to kids, around the world, costumes & pajamas, we’ve seen it all! But most importantly, we’ve seen yogi having fun- getting silly & imaginative, trying new & challenging poses, being brave in front of the camera, remembering that even one little pose a day goes a long way toward mindfulness & intention.
It’s been so much fun & I want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! My passion is to blend the beauty of yoga + the beauty of photography to encourage people to Grow Soul Beautiful, and I can’t think of a better way than using Instagram to have fun, get connected to other yogi, and be inspired by the beauty all around us.
There were so many wonderfully creative photos each day, it was difficult to choose a favorite to feature. We rounded up all our feature Instagram yogi & are showcasing them below.
November Instagram Yoga Challenge
We’re thrilled to be doing this again. We’ve made a few adjustments to the poses & you can get more detail on each day’s pose on the Yoga Instagram Challenge Page with daily poses.
We’ll be posting our favorites each day, but not limiting ourselves to one per day- there’s just too many beautiful yoga photos out there to share! We’ll continue to post the daily pose also on Instagram, but we’re going to be a little more relaxed about our schedule and timing this month to give us a breather.
Every day, simply check out that days asana & snap a photo of yourself in that pose. (Teamwork is always great!) Yoga & Photography together are such a powerful combination, and we hope this encourages others to do a little yoga every single day. At the end of the month, we’ll do a wrap-up post featuring our favorite yogis for each day throughout our November challenge.
