I’ve recently decided to venture into yoga as a form of exercise and as with most new activities or exercise we look to others that have mastered the art for inspiration.
I have turned to Instagram and have the following men of yoga for #BodyGoals and yoga inspiration.
Australian Dylan Werner teaches workshops and classes internationally, and you can also train with him online. With 363,000 followers on Instagram, his social media feed keeps the inspiration comin’. Don’t let the colourful tattoos fool you, this traveling yogi is as bendy and gravity-defying as it gets. His impressive snaps show a well traveled and, ahem, well balanced yogi. Even if it’ll take another couple years before we reach that level of strength and flexibility…we seriously appreciate the #fitspo.
It takes more energy to grasp on to something than to let it go. Physically, grasping something takes more strength than opening than hand. Grasping is effort, to release is the opposite of effort. . We think that through our efforts we can practice aparigraha (non-grasping). We try to let go. And the harder we try to release, let go, open up, the worse it gets and the more we clench. Effort will not work. If I want to open my hand, open my mind or open my heart, I can’t use effort, because effort will only close it tighter, I have to surrender. . #yoga Wearing @aloyoga
Strength is painful in the beginning. Even unbearable at times. However, with practice, strength feels absolutely amazing. It gives us the ability to trust, the ability to persevere, and helps to maintain a steady mental attitude within the ups and downs of life. 🌟Teaching Today @yogagames Sweden 11am Workshop on Vinyasa Transitions 1pm Workshop on Kriya Yoga 🌟Advanced Teacher Training July 10 🌟#yoga strength #holdthehighvision #jaredmccann Photo by @montystilson
With piercing blue eyes, Jake Gyllenhaal-like features and his precious pooch, there’s little reason to not check out Patrick Beach on Instagram. Along with being able to nail some seriously cool poses, his little dog sometimes features in videos and we all know what happens when there’s a puppy involved – instant swoon.
