I joined Instagram in May 2015 and you can check out all my recent yoga and dance photos on my account @gracelingyu.

Hello hello! I love vacation!
A little bit tough on the hands when you’re balancing on a rough and slippery rock!
One of my favorite photos because the tide swept in perfectly to surround the rock I was on!
Yoga on vacation is necessary when you have beautiful surroundings!

It’s never too young to start yoga!
“Please don’t fall into the fountain, please don’t fall into the fountain…”
Love the view of the buildings from Yerba Buena Center!
It’s easy to keep your head lifted when there’s pigeon poop right in front of your face!
Trying to be vertical with the building behind!

Warrior 2 with nothing but beautiful water and islands in front of my gaze…
Appreciating beautiful Australia skies in Extended side angle.
Taking a chance with Crow-on-a-cliff!

I like making up my own yoga poses. This one is Upside Down Forward Fold Hanging From a Wobbly Tree Branch.
Just another tree sprouting from the ground =)
Standing and back-bending at the same time… takes a lot of effort!
An arm and leg hold variation in Balancing Half Moon.
These bars were too hard to resist “striking a pose.”
Love love love arm balances! Great for the core, upper body, and mentally challenging.
Trying to match the angle of the tree behind me!
Note to self: Forearm balance on a sandy/rocky/gravel-y path is not pleasant on the forearms…
My first real “headshot” photo.
Dancer Pose: grounding down, reaching forward, and stretching up.
There’s nothing like being able to meditate upside down (even when your head hurts a bit on the stone…).
Cherry blossoms are my favorite springtime flowers!
My toes used to touch my head so effortlessly… when I was 3 years old.
You can see my “third eye!”
Arms and legs can be interchangeable =)
Honoring the gift of movement.
I see you. I honor you. I respect you.
At any moment in our lives, there is always something we can smile about.
You have to take a “Jumping Picture” everywhere you go. Why not in a beautiful blooming Spring Garden?
Finding a bit of peace and serenity in nature.
I’d love to have this bench setting in my backyard…

Getting ready to film my first DVD shoot for Peak 10 Cardio Strength Remix!
One of my favorite handstand leg variations – the double stag.

Babies like to be right-side up =)
8 months pregnant and still practicing yoga!
8 months pregnant variation of Pigeon Pose.

A pair of pigeons with their proud mama!
Acro-Yoga – flying like superman!
Lisa Liu (8 months pregnant) and I (7 months pregnant) practiced yoga with Sherry Han to stay healthy!
Who said you shouldn’t do inversions when you’re pregnant?
Babies almost kissing (or mamas…).
Double camel pose with Eagle arms.
A little bit of Acro Yoga with Sherry Han.

Upward Facing Dog is the perfect angle for this climbing ladder!
Scorpion forearm balance on the lunch tables.
Although I’m smiling here, balancing in the splits on that rail was nerve-racking!
Headstands work in every setting =)
I wouldn’t recommend trying Bakasana Crow Pose on top of the monkey bars…
