I’ve read somewhere that people with no clear career goals become yoga or Pilates instructors. Not only is that not fair to all those devoted yogis who teach inspirational classes, but it’s also not fair to us teaching yoga part-time while holding a 9-5 desk job.
Come to think of it, maybe they just don’t understand the power of having rock-hard abs and a tight tush that turns heads on the street even when dressed in baggy sweatpants and a wrinkled t-shirt. But I do, and so do you. If you’re looking for a step-by-step yoga dating manual, you’ve come to the right place.
Today, I’d like to discuss my top 3 ways to use the fact that your body is out of this world thanks to yoga, and attract the kind of partner that will make your head spin in all the right ways by posting yoga-related stories on your Instagram or Facebook.
Wear Proper Yoga Clothes
All eyes will be on you when you put on your yoga gear and head out the door. Given that we all know chances are you’ll meet the man of your dreams on the web rather than on the street, you should put your yoga pants and top on and head for social media. Performance gear is incredibly sexy not just because it’s tight, shiny and stretchy, but because it hides everything you want hidden and accentuates all of your attributes to attract the right kind of attention. The more diverse your posts, the better, and even though we are all well aware of the fact that top-of-the-line yoga clothes cost an arm and a leg, changing your outfit for every post will make your stories pop.
Nails, Hair, and Makeup
Don’t forget that your Instagram and Facebook pages are like your calling cards presenting you to the world. You want your every post to look professional, and relatable, and you in the main role should look approachable and down-to-earth. At the same time, you want to doll up because let’s face it – guys go crazy for shiny hair, neutral makeup, and polished nails. Even if you’re not a girly girl who’d wear makeup to the gym, make sure your face looks fresh, your hair is done, and your nails are manicured and pedicured for every post. Most people will not even notice this small effort but he will, and you won’t even need to Photoshop your pictures at all!
Post Those Poses that Make You Look Good
Forget posting photos where your face is all wrinkled and your eyes are bulging because the asana you’re doing is simply too challenging to keep a straight face. Your yoga Instagram or Facebook page is not your résumé, and it shouldn’t feature what you do best. It should feature what makes you look the best. If a downward facing dog makes your cheeks look too chubby, post a photo where you’re comfortable doing upward facing dog with a smile. If crow pose doesn’t do your body justice, stick to warrior 2 pose which can beautifully show your every muscle.
Keep posting the photos that feature you alone striking your favorite yoga poses, and you won’t believe how many likes and organic shares you’ll get. As a result, the man you’ve been waiting for will find himself among your most devoted followers sooner or later, and your online fairy tale will begin.
