Blogger, author and self-proclaimed "nut butter addict" Ella Woodward started her popular blog "Deliciously Ella" after being diagnosed with a rare illness in 2011. She began to share her holistic journey on natural good and healing approaches on her blog, and eventually ventured out to Instagram. Her page showcases recipes from her previous cookbooks, new wellness endeavors, and photos of her workouts with her dog.
Founder of NYC-based Strala Yoga, Tara Stiles is a former model-turned-yoga instructor who goes by her mantra, "Make Your Own Rules Diet," also the title of her forthcoming cookbook and lifestyle guide (with a foreward by MAKER, Kris Carr). Stiles' Instagram shows off her wide range of impressive yoga moves, wellness giveaways, and even the super casual yoga poses with the mastermind Deepak Chopra.
I maintain this account to document my home #yoga practice- however, my practice doesn't begin and end on a yoga mat. I eat certain things, use certain products, and wear clothes from a wide variety of apparel designers. If I ever mention a product, take comfort in the fact that I have actually used each item and incorporate it into my daily health regiment and practice. Regardless of sponsorship, I never mention items I don't actually use, and I can't tell you how many offers I've declined from companies who are desperate for shameless social media promotion. I am not willing to promote products solely for the act of collecting money- if I say something about it, it's because I actually think you should give it a shot. If you have a problem with this policy, please know that my love still extends to you, but go if you must. Besides, if @serialpodcast & @nprinvisibilia can tout brands they like, I think it's cool if I do it, too. (This photo is a throwback to my first instagram challenge w/ the lovely @yogawithdavina- my feelings about the power of our instagram community haven't changed since then and I hope you feel the same way.)
Body positive advocate, yoga teacher, and "fat femme," Jessamyn Stanley uses her Instagram to knock down stigmas in regards to race and body size in the yoga community.
Thanks to founder and trainer at Ballet Beautiful, Mary Helen Bowers, ballet is not only reserved for the Misty Copelands of the world. Bowers fuses ballet with fitness, offering a unique perspective into the rigorous training of a ballerina, without the grueling hours and jaw-dropping moves.
The Instagram account mostly shows photos of Bowers — a former ballerina herself – nailing the most intricate moves in unlikely places like beaches.
One word that comes to mind when looking at Alex Elle's Instagram account is simplicity.Known as Alex Elle to her 200k+ social media followers from all around the globe, author and poet Alexandra Elle practices yoga, meditation and healthy living through balancing her life as a mother and entrepreneur.
