19 Philly Yogis You Should Totally Follow on Instagram
Need some yoga inspo? Look no further.
Sometimes, when we’re feeling pretty uninspired for healthy meals or smart workouts, we turn to Instagram for inspiration. And why not? It’s a source of gorgeous photograph, and it’s a platform where the fitness pros can share their wisdom right to your phone.
That said, Philly is filled with inspiring yogis who keep us motivated and informed. Here are 17 of them that you should totally be following — if you aren’t already.
Yoga is about love. Yoga has taught me – and constantly reminds me – to live with all my heart and to love with all my life. This is the promise that I offer to myself and all those around me everyday. I mean it when I say I love you. The divine in me, that loves me, recognizes itself in you, and loves you too. ❤️❤️❤️ . . @kikivonglinow . #radicalselflove #youarelove #divinelove #consciouslove #loveyourself #believeinlove #spreadlove #ekapadarajakapotasana #mineyourdepths #strikegold #selfworth #followyourheart #anahatachakra

"Warriors are not born and they are not made… Warriors create themselves through trial and error, pain and suffering, and their ability to conquer their own faults…" – Unknown All of the lunar/eclipse energy that has been happening over the past month plus in addition to some new trials with shifting my health definitely have me feeling a bit like a warrior lately. Many layers of my own faults have been stirred up and shaken into my reality in order to be cleared out of myself and my life. This has also brought about a ton of different emotions and eye opening moments of deep reflection. To say the least this has been bewildering, scary, and embarrassing in the thick of it. But, now it is becoming clear why it needed to happen. Feeling grateful for the uncomfortable process as I know it was needed to clear the path for growth, balance, and divine unfolding to continue to happen in many areas of my life. Feeling even more grateful for all the beloved support I have had and continue to receive from the cosmos & most importantly those who I hold close in my life who help me through these processes. #selfreflection #wayofthebutterfly #yogalife #letgo #awakening #personalgrowth #selfimprovement #clarity #grateful

Still feelin’ victorious. Let’s celebrate our wins through some practice. . 12pm-1pm @colorspacelabs !! . . It’s super easy to recall/ruminate on the losses. In fact, it’s our tendency (obsolete survival tactic). Which makes it real important to search for + even purposefully reflect on the victories: especially the small stuff. I for one tend to harp on the near-misses or seeming failures but I’m working (kinda hard) to celebrate what I once saw as the small stuff – when things go right!! It felt weird at first but it’s getting easier. And it’s making me annoyingly in a good mood some days. Just ask @stephillyirwin Proof that we CAN carve new neuro pathways and begin to see things a bit more positively. Until then, we enjoy the journey in our color-changing studio which will give you your dose of warm glowyness, even if you don’t have your rose colored glasses today. K spiel over. See you soon!?

"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” – Buddha . . As we all share our romance stories, or gratitude + appreciation for those we love today, let's not forget to show ourselves some extra care as well! . . . Self love can be as simple as saying no when needed, forgiving yourself for human error, not comparing yourself to others, or eating the cake without guilt. Practice YOUR form of self love today + every day! . . . This is something that I took a long time to really appreciate, and something that I have to constantly practice. I love my family so much that my heart could explode + knowing that my children are watching how I treat myself inspires me to make sure I'm modeling that loving behavior. . . What is your definition of self love? . @thepositivitycharge #MyPositiveStory . . . #Selflovejourney #selfloveclub #selfacceptance #selflovewarrior #bewellphoto #yogilove #yogamagic #beagoddess #beyourownlight
