Red White and Lotus Yoga Position

While it may not be necessary that this woman's fingernails and toenails match her yoga pants, one could argue that it enhances the harmony created by her striking lotus position.

Female Yoga Outdoors

As best I can tell this female is practicing yoga outdoors in the Philippines. Great angles created by her body as she arches back to grab her toes.

Yoga Silhouette at Sunrise on the Beach

Yoga Sun at any beach of the World., originally uploaded by Eric Lon.

Yoga lends itself to photography so well and truth be told I probably have at least as much interest in photography as I do in yoga, if not more. I love the seemingly unnatural positions yogis contort their bodies into. Sunrise and sunset pictures are a dime a dozen but when you add the silhouette of someone practicing yoga it can create interest that the very best sunset pictures still lack.

Ultra flexible man practicing yoga on the beach while the waves wash over him. As a yoga newbie my ability to name positions is not exactly at a master level but I do believe this to be correctly identified as the Cobra position.

Yoga Posture - Unsupported Neck Stand

Asanas, originally uploaded by drea_beijing.

I'm guessing this is an advanced yoga position - an neck stand with no support from hands. Kids - don't try this at home without a professional yoga instructor ready to catch you!

Female Yoga Backbend Demonstrating Extreme Flixibility

Kenna Crouch Backbend, originally uploaded by lululemon athletica.

What better way for a dancer to stay in shape than to practice yoga and what better way to practice yoga than to become a yoga instructor! It's no secret that yoga is one of the best ways to improve flexibility and Kenna Crouch - dancer and yoga instuctor - clearly shows the results of a strict yoga fitness regime. Nice form!

Tibetan Yoga on the Snow in Nepal

High in the mountains is a great place for one's spirit to connect with the beauty of nature making snow covered mountain tops an ideal place to practice yoga - unfortunately for most of us, it's not very convenient for a yoga workout on your lunch break.
