My 10 most popular yoga photos on Instagram


Instagram is a big part of my life. I know this sounds ridiculous, but it's true. I've been a fan since I joined over three years ago, but ever since I became a part of the yoga community, Instagram has transformed my life. Since my very first yoga picture from March 1 (which isn't even a yoga pose, but a photo of me lifting a chair above my head), I have posted literally hundreds of them. 

My blog friend Liz did a round-up of the top 20 photos of her Instagram account (take a look, they are stunning!), and I liked the idea so much that I decided to share my 10 most popular yoga photos. 

Here they are, as decided by you


I'm really happy that our sweet friend Donald Duck made it into the Top 10. He was a big part of our summer, hanging out with us under the willow tree and around bonfires. He is fully grown now, still much tinier than the other ducks, and lives happily on the pond with his buddies.


For large parts of the year, I have been chasing the ever-elusive handstand. My original goal was to be able to do a solid handstand by the end of this year, which isn't looking promising unless I crack the secret code within the next 10 days.
Never mind, that gives me a goal for 2016! 


This wheel pose was part of the "OctoberYogaSpice" challenge, and proof that our October was warm enough to practice outside for the majority of the month.


This is a still photo of a video, one out of three for this round-up. Videos are great tools to see what you're doing. Unless you practice in front of a mirror, you have no idea if you're doing the postures correctly, and it's often a surprise to see what you actually look like.


In this case, I'm fairly sure that my butt and back are hanging through too much as I'm coming down in Chaturanga Dandasana, but it felt straight to me. 


#Yogawithdogs has been one of my most-used hashtags this year, because the dogs are with me every day and show up in a lot of pics. It's equally entertaining and annoying, but I can't bring myself to lock them away during practice.They are my biggest (and sloppiest) supporters!


Another still shot from a video. This is from April, my second month into yoga. 



One of my fave moments of the year. I love that dog.



Fallen Angel pose. When I first saw this pose I thought it's the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. It's tragic yet elegant, don't you think?


Still shot of a video of my beloved headstand. 





This was taken on the day before Halloween: Dancer's pose in my fairytale skirt


And now, drumroll please:

The moment you have all been waiting for (with bated breath, right?):

The most popular picture on Instagram with 97 likes!


Why that one?
I have no idea. My money is on the corgi bum. Nobody can resist those cute butt cheeks!

What are your favourite IG photos of the year? If I don't follow you yet, please leave your Instagram name and I will do so. I can't get enough of those delicious squares*. 

*Instagram will forever be square for me. In the best way possible.
