Have you been wondering about the history of the yoga selfie? I know I have. Fortunately, somebody created an infographic with everything we need to know about the pop culture phenomenon!
Apparently, the first yoga selfie happened in April 2013, when actress Lea Michele (of Glee fame) posted a photo of herself. The form was continued by well-known yoga selfie addicted celebrities like Hilaria Baldwin and supermodel Gisele.
The infographic then asks, What are people saying? (about yoga selfies, obvs.) In response, there are quotes and headshots taken from that NY Post article – including a quote from me, along with YogaDork Jennilyn Carson, Tara Stiles and Kay Kay Clivio.
What I had to say about yoga selfies: “It’s a little contradictory to the original intention of the practice. I personally don’t [post them, but] people do like them – as opposed to images of people sitting quietly in meditation. It’s not as sexy or glamorous.”
Well, times have changed since the NY Post interviewed me, and I now post yoga selfies all over the place. Check out the featured photo (above)! And this! I just need to follow the handy infographic checklist and yoga selfie stardom will be mine.
