So, yoga studios with names like Fat Yoga and Buddha Body have popped up in the west. Also, Pot yoga -- aka "yoganja" -- is a thing that exists. And #justsaying: Women are now wearing see-through, controversial yoga pants, just about any and everywhere.

More recently, yoga even got its place in the world with The United Nations General Assembly adopting an India-led resolution declaring June 21 as 'International Day of Yoga'.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'd have already noticed these.

So it's only natural that stars like Gisele Bundchen and Lea Michele are showing off their namaste-inducing yoga moves on social media, like never before. But they are not the only ones.

Take a deep breath and see celeb yogis who've posted on Instagram while in a meditative state. Now, don't sweat (well, do), as you check out all the cool Instagram yoga poses fit women do everyday. Yoga-spiration alert!
