Yoga can sometimes get a bad rep for taking itself too seriously — there's all that heavy breathing, and what about the chanting — when really it's anything but humorless. That's why we love the trend of yogis taking to Snapchat to show you what their days are really like. Spoiler alert: Even famous yogis do things like eat junk food, get mad when they're caught in the rain and curse. On the other side of the coin, they spend lots of time practicing yoga in fabulous locations, eating healthy and meditating, which is what makes them especially rewarding to follow. Here are some of the best yogis to follow on Snapchat (disclaimer: You have to add them manually by username).

When she's not seamlessly taking you through her flow or introducing you to the sights of Kuala Lumpur, Ghazalie introduces her real friends and family to her Snap fam. She's not afraid to eat a huge dessert — our favorite kind of girl — and then do yoga to burn off the calories, of course.
Seek your bliss in the world and you are lost already. But find your happiness within and you have it all instantly. Ask yourself what this magic "it" is that you've been seeking really is. You might find that the "it" factor is the glow that comes from knowing exactly who you are. #practiceyogachangeyourworld #onebreathatatime . Outfit by @omstarsapparel .

A fellow Miami-based yogi and co-owner of Om Stars with yogi partner in crime Kino MacGregor, Verna's life takes her from yoga retreats to headstand challenges to, yes, even more beach-front yoga.
Wake up, do yoga, flow through business meetings, eat breakfast, hug your friends, swim in the ocean, walk your dogs, open your computer, get. shit. done. This day has had an interesting order of events. Time to burn through 600 emails! Then, wine. #workworkworkworkworkwork #beachfirst #worklater #be #live #life
