    A quick glance at Erin Motz's Instagram feed may cause you to wonder why she deems herself a “bad yogi.” Erin mixes her energizing posture pics with dessert photos, pizza references and lifestyle tips like #15: “Yoga’s like a taco: your shell will break, but getting to the good stuff will be worth it.” Her humor ditches the bendier-than-thou pretense and offers a more realistic approach to well-being. Erin’s take on the word “bad” applies more to being “badass” and not conforming to other people’s expectations.
