A quick scroll through Instagram these days and you could be forgiven for thinking it’s the ‘Year of the Yogi’. Social media is saturated with pics of the bendy and beautiful twisting themselves into pretzels, but how do you know who to follow out of the million Insta-famous Yogi’s out there?
Rather than trawl through hundreds of yoga accounts we went to those in the know, and asked four of the best yoga instructors and studios who they follow and admire – and now we’re sharing them with you. We’re nice like that… #YogaEveryDamnDay

Adam is a London-living alignment-based vinyasa yoga and Budokon yoga teacher. He teaches regularly in top London studios, nationally and internationally, and he’s also one of the Boys of Yoga. Find him @AdHusYoga, adamhusleryoga.com
Adam’s Top 3 Insta-Yogis
“She’s a bad-ass, super flamboyant yogi and creator of her own yoga style, Yogance: yoga and dance. Her style is the antithesis of mine and she pulls out postures that you could probably only do if you were a gymnast from the age of six… Which it just so happens she was.
“Though some of the postures she pulls off may not be anatomically beneficial for your average yogi, it’s the sheer creativity of it that keeps me an avid follower.”
“Unlike a lot of those ‘supercool’ yogis, his feed is not just a series of photos alternating between him looking moody and then him standing on his hands. He combines his strength and flexibility to explore all elements of asana [postures], along with interpretations, all surrounded by a lifestyle that most of us would be envious of!”
“Creator of the Budokon yoga system, a combination of martial arts movements and asana, that’s just pretty damn hard. But it’s not his ability to defy gravity and move his spine like liquid that keeps me following but his strong opinions. He’s definitely not shy about sharing them with the world: “Just because you can do a handstand, doesn’t mean you’re not a dick.”
