It was a life-changing wrist injury that led Irene Pappas to turn to yoga and there’s been no coming back. While Irene prefers a blend of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, she has recently expanded her study to hand balancers, circus performers, and even contortionists! Check her out for some mind-blowing yoga poses and also her awesome tattoos.

Radhika Bose is a spunky young yoga blogger who does what she loves and says exactly what’s on her mind. So if you’re a little sick and tired of preachy yoga gurus whom you can’t really understand, you’re going to like Yogasini’s spirit.

You’ll occasionally find her doing a chakrasana in heels and lehenga, which is always fun.

Dylan Werner Yoga

This full-time travelling yoga teacher comes from a military background. If you’ve always thought of yoga being too gentle for a dude, you should check out some of the crazy {yet super graceful} asanas this guy pulls off.

Pebbled streets, beaches, rocky waterfalls, or mountains, he can start just about anywhere and we’re not complaining.

Deepika Mehta Yoga

Flexibility should be her middle name, because oh dear God, some of the moves she pulls off don’t look humanly possible. After a near death rock climbing accident a decade ago, when doctors told her she could never walk again, Deepika turned to meditation, pranayama, and alternate healing thorough yoga.

Watching her entire Instagram feed is a treat, but we’re biased to her bohemian style photoshoots in the forest. Is it a dance, is it yoga? We can’t tell. We just know it’s all very beautiful.

Nikki Carter’s asanas are ever so slightly ballet-esque—with pointed toes and lots of grace. Her headstands are giving us major goals and so is her yogawear.
