10 Insane Yoga Photos

Yoga selfies have become a huge internet sensation, especially on Instagram where you can find hundreds of hashtags for various types of yoga. #yogalove, #yogainspiration, #yogachallenge, and the famous #yogaeverydamnday, are just a small sample from the pool.

Whether you enjoy scrolling for inspiration, motivation or just sheer awe, it is mind-blowing how many incredible photos are out there. You’ll find everything from the amateur yogi tracking their progress, to the borderline contortionist, super strength to Natarajasana poised beautifully in front of creative backdrops.

You may have also seen yoga selfies occasionally catching some flack, (do a quick Google search of “yoga selfies” and you’ll see what I’m talking about) but regardless of differing opinions, we can all agree they are better than “duck face.” We personally can’t get enough of these 10 insane yoga photos!
