I joined Instagram in May 2015 and you can check out all my recent yoga and dance photos on my account @gracelingyu.
July 2014 – Photos Taken by James Yu in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
One of my favorite photos because the tide swept in perfectly to surround the rock I was on!
Hello hello! I love vacation!
Yoga on vacation is necessary when you have beautiful surroundings!
A little bit tough on the hands when you’re balancing on a rough and slippery rock!

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

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

I’d love to have this bench setting in my backyard…
Honoring the gift of movement.
I like making up my own yoga poses. This one is Upside Down Forward Fold Hanging From a Wobbly Tree Branch.
My first real “headshot” photo.
Love love love arm balances! Great for the core, upper body, and mentally challenging.
You can see my “third eye!”
There’s nothing like being able to meditate upside down (even when your head hurts a bit on the stone…).
At any moment in our lives, there is always something we can smile about.
Just another tree sprouting from the ground =)
Trying to match the angle of the tree behind me!
An arm and leg hold variation in Balancing Half Moon.
Finding a bit of peace and serenity in nature.
I see you. I honor you. I respect you.
Standing and back-bending at the same time… takes a lot of effort!
Arms and legs can be interchangeable =)
You have to take a “Jumping Picture” everywhere you go. Why not in a beautiful blooming Spring Garden?
Note to self: Forearm balance on a sandy/rocky/gravel-y path is not pleasant on the forearms…
These bars were too hard to resist “striking a pose.”
Cherry blossoms are my favorite springtime flowers!
Dancer Pose: grounding down, reaching forward, and stretching up.
My toes used to touch my head so effortlessly… when I was 3 years old.
March 2013 – Photos Taken by David Heisler in Van Nuys, CA
Getting ready to film my first DVD shoot for Peak 10 Cardio Strength Remix!
One of my favorite handstand leg variations – the double stag.
August 2011 – Photos Taken By Picture People in San Jose, CA
8 months pregnant variation of Pigeon Pose.
8 months pregnant and still practicing yoga!
Babies like to be right-side up =)
July 2011 – Photos Taken By Mr. Liu in Campbell, CA
Babies almost kissing (or mamas…).
Lisa Liu (8 months pregnant) and I (7 months pregnant) practiced yoga with Sherry Han to stay healthy!
A little bit of Acro Yoga with Sherry Han.
Who said you shouldn’t do inversions when you’re pregnant?
A pair of pigeons with their proud mama!
Acro-Yoga – flying like superman!
Double camel pose with Eagle arms.
January 2011 – Photos Taken By James Yu in Cupertino, CA
Scorpion forearm balance on the lunch tables.
I wouldn’t recommend trying Bakasana Crow Pose on top of the monkey bars…
Although I’m smiling here, balancing in the splits on that rail was nerve-racking!
Headstands work in every setting =)
Upward Facing Dog is the perfect angle for this climbing ladder!
