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

“Please don’t fall into the fountain, please don’t fall into the fountain…”
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!
It’s never too young to start yoga!
Trying to be vertical with the building behind!

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

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

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

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

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!
Headstands work in every setting =)
I wouldn’t recommend trying Bakasana Crow Pose on top of the monkey bars…
