Instagram Yoga Challenge

by Taylor on September 28, 2012

We’re excited to announce our October Instagram Yoga Challenge- a fun & inspiring community project to get you doing a little yoga every day next month.   Photography is an amazing creative outlet & yoga is a powerful tool to connect mind+body awareness to see yourself as beautiful.

 Every day, simply check out the asana for that date & snap a quick photo of yourself (or your friends) in that pose.  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 & feature our favorite yogi from each day.

How you can join:

  • Follow @GrowSoulBeautiful on Instragram -  We’ll be posting a daily reminder photo of each pose on our Instagram
  • Save the graphic above to your phone for easy access- Grab a quick photo with your phone or right-click on the photo to save to your computer
  • Each day, snap a photo of yourself in the asana - Use an app with a timer to make it a self-portrait or grab a buddy to double the fun
  • Tag us in your caption!  Tag @GrowSoulBeautiful and add the hashtag #YogaADay
  • Connect with others- search for the #YogaaDay hashtag to find others having fun with yoga photography

Our amazing yogi partners:
We are thrilled to collaborate with inspiring yogis on Instagram for this yoga photography challenge.  It’s easy to follow them, get inspired, be reminded each day, and find others in the yoga community. We would love it if you would follow them on Instagram and support their daily dedication to the yoga practice!  {Click their photo or link and you will be redirected to Statigram, where you can easily like, comment and follow!}

Hello Christina! Welcome & so glad you are learning about yoga. There are so many types and styles of yoga- some hold each pose for many breaths & some are flow styles that move between poses with each breath. For our challenge, there’s no right or wrong way- just long enough to snap a photo :) You can read more about yoga & resources to get started here: http://growsoulbeautiful.com/yoga/going-deeper/

We’ll be having an awesome giveaway on Friday for a 30 day e-course, which offers a beginner level, so be sure to come back. NAMASTE!
