ChelseaMany yogis have become bonafide celebrities on Instagram, landing book deals, making online yoga workouts, and being flown around the world to teach yoga retreats as a result—and now there’s even a yoga festival dedicated to them.

I.G. Getaway (which, by the way, stands for Inspiration Generation, not Instagram), is a five-day-long Instagram yogi celebration across Los Angeles, starting August 22. It includes workshops led by stars of the app, like Laura Kasperzak—an original Instagram Yogis who had 159K followers in 2013 when we first discovered her and 1.1 million now—plus Mackenzie Miller, and Irene Pappas.

And you can also take special classes at local studios like YogaWorks, Exhale Venice, and Yoga Salt.

“When I open up Instagram and type in phrases like #awakeandcaptivated, I can see thousands of my brothers and sisters on this path that share the same intention as me,” says popular participating yogi Chelsey Korus on the connection of Instagram and yoga. “What a gift to be able to tell our stories and be seen and heard by like-minded people all over the world from just one hashtag.”

Our only bit of parting advice? Make sure your phone has a full charge. There are sure to be lots of Instagrammable moments. —Jamie McKillop
