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!
April 2014 – Photos Taken by James Yu in San Francisco, California
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!
It’s never too young to start yoga!
“Please don’t fall into the fountain, please don’t fall into the fountain…”
Trying to be vertical with the building behind!

Taking a chance with Crow-on-a-cliff!
Appreciating beautiful Australia skies in Extended side angle.
Warrior 2 with nothing but beautiful water and islands in front of my gaze…
April 2013 – Photos Taken by Shannon West in Pasadena, CA
My toes used to touch my head so effortlessly… when I was 3 years old.
Finding a bit of peace and serenity in nature.
I’d love to have this bench setting in my backyard…
Dancer Pose: grounding down, reaching forward, and stretching up.
You can see my “third eye!”
Standing and back-bending at the same time… takes a lot of effort!
Honoring the gift of movement.
My first real “headshot” photo.
Arms and legs can be interchangeable =)
At any moment in our lives, there is always something we can smile about.
Just another tree sprouting from the ground =)
Note to self: Forearm balance on a sandy/rocky/gravel-y path is not pleasant on the forearms…
There’s nothing like being able to meditate upside down (even when your head hurts a bit on the stone…).
I see you. I honor you. I respect you.
I like making up my own yoga poses. This one is Upside Down Forward Fold Hanging From a Wobbly Tree Branch.
An arm and leg hold variation in Balancing Half Moon.
Love love love arm balances! Great for the core, upper body, and mentally challenging.
Trying to match the angle of the tree behind me!
These bars were too hard to resist “striking a pose.”
Cherry blossoms are my favorite springtime flowers!
You have to take a “Jumping Picture” everywhere you go. Why not in a beautiful blooming Spring Garden?
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
Babies like to be right-side up =)
8 months pregnant variation of Pigeon Pose.
8 months pregnant and still practicing yoga!
July 2011 – Photos Taken By Mr. Liu in Campbell, CA
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?
Double camel pose with Eagle arms.
Babies almost kissing (or mamas…).
A pair of pigeons with their proud mama!
Acro-Yoga – flying like superman!
January 2011 – Photos Taken By James Yu in Cupertino, CA
Scorpion forearm balance on the lunch tables.
Upward Facing Dog is the perfect angle for this climbing ladder!
Although I’m smiling here, balancing in the splits on that rail was nerve-racking!
I wouldn’t recommend trying Bakasana Crow Pose on top of the monkey bars…
Headstands work in every setting =)
