These are Instagram photos. Yeah, I KNOW!
I follow a ton of different yogis and yoginis on Instagram...it has become quite a place for daily inspiration. However, Ben Istimur takes it to a whole other level. I am blown away by these. Just another example of how the internet and social media are constantly creating new spaces for artistic expression. I've had a hard time finding out any more on Istimur, but I'm going to keep looking. For now, enjoy his instagram feed, which has tons more of these beautiful photos.
Other yogis I love following on Instagram include:
MacKenzie Miller Seattle based instructor. Crazy high quality video and photos--mostly handstand and inversion work.
Lamonte Tales Goode Insane. Breakdancer/yogi/I'm not sure...insane videos and photos. He invented the crazy pose, Super Soldier/Inverted Compass, which I've been working on lately. Looks crazy, but is actually somewhat accessible.
