The age of Instagram and a little hashtag called #stopdropandyoga has given me no shame as to where I'll do yoga. If you are tagged to #stopdropandyoga you are supposed to post a picture of you doing yoga, where ever you are. This is a fun game of tag yogi friends play on a regular basis. Some days you can get 6-10 tags and blow up your Instagram feed. I was very excited when I received my first #stopdropandyoga tag. What should I do, where should I do it, what if everyone is looking? Now when I go anywhere just out of habit I immediately look around to see where a good #stopdropandyoga place is, or what a cool picture would be. Target, no problem, there is even a hashtag #targettuesday where you will see hundreds of yogis doing crow, tree, dancer or other yoga poses on the big red balls at Target or inside. Yoga at the zoo? Yup, fun to do an animal themed pose with the animal itself! Yoga at the grocery store or Starbucks? No biggie. Yes people look, but it doesn't matter. Maybe you are inspiring someone to get into yoga, or maybe people think you are crazy and that is ok too. Yoga is fun! It is life, it is joy, so why not play with it.
The downside to Instagram is the limited number of items in your notifications feed. I miss most of my #stopdropandyoga tags unless someone tags me in their photo. Just part of the game.
So if you see someone in handstand at the mall or in crow at the gas station there is a good chance there are playing this yogi game of tag. Maybe you can even join in on the fun.
