Upon trolling the #yoga hashtag on Instagram, we came across sets of beautifully orchestrated imagery of yoga poses from Fitstagrammer Emily Cummings – @astateofemily. Not only was each yoga pose complex and stunning, but the photography and colors in each photo were artistic and visually captivating. We reached out to Emily to get more info about herself, her love for yoga, and what inspired her to capture these poses on Instagram and share them with the world. Here’s what she shared exclusively with The Body Department:
Yoga came into my life suddenly and randomly in 2013 and it was love at first down-dog. Yoga has taught me so much about myself, and about life. Participating in Instagram challenges has given me a chance to combine my art direction skills with my passion for yoga. Its not about doing each pose perfectly- its about being happy with who you are in this moment, and where you are in your personal practice. As in life, there is always room for growth- and I learn best when I’m having fun, and being creative! The yoga community is one of acceptance and love and I feel so blessed to have become a part of it. I hope that by sharing my love for yoga and dance I will have inspired other women to find what makes them happy, and to be confident and proud of who they are. Namaste. – Emily Cummings, @stateofemily
