Get Inspired via Instagram: Canadian Yogis May 13, 2015 13:39

Everyone begins their yoga journey in different ways.

Maybe your friend dragged you to a class, and you got hooked.

Or you started practicing online.

You may have been doing yoga on and off for years.

There are endless starting points! But for many, the journey into yoga begins from a jolt of inspiration through Instagram. 

Yes Instagram.

You may know Instagram as that app your friends post photos of their dinners on. Or that app that helps you feel closer to celebrities. Or that app that allows you to window shop your favorite brands without  having to leave your couch. 

Yes, Instagram has many useful (albeit not vital) uses in everyday life. Including yoga inspiration.

There are many users who post tutorials on poses or offer monthly challenges and simple everyday reminders to get on your mat and start practising. 

Well, if you are looking for a little inspiration, we've got you covered. We've narrowed down the list to some of our favorite Canadian yogis on Instagram. Check them out!
