Since September is National Yoga Month, we asked all of our @mindbodygreen Instagram followers to snap a photo of their favorite yoga pose and share it. This month-long celebration of asanas led to many beautiful poses and we loved seeing them all — mbg readers are a talented, flexible bunch. Here are a few of our favorite photos. Maybe they'll inspire you to get out there and strike a pose!
