Yoga & Instagram

I spend a decent amount of time on my Instagram @clarissa_mae_ participating in yoga challenges, connecting with other yogis, documenting my own practice.  It’s been a way for me to share my own story and encourage others in theirs.  I have often struggled with remaining true to my yoga and still finding a way to share my love and passion for yoga.

At some point last year I decided using & utilizing social media was a good way to help others in their struggles and share my daily ups and downs.  My hope is that by sharing this part of me I am helping others.  Soon I’ll be hitting a big milestone in my quest to inspire, 10,000 followers on Instagram, to me it’s been careful connection and dedication to others on the square that has helped me reach this & I want to give something back! Below is my post from Instagram earlier today, if you are on Instagram consider following me, participate in my giveaway, or check out the fantastic sponsors!

Lots of love!
