I love Instagram, maybe more than Facebook or any other social media. Using a #hashtag as a secret weapon, Instagram helps you target the audience of your account and find instantly everything you want. I mean, everything! A very creative feature of Instagram is challenges. If you are an IG addict like me, you might already know them. In particular, in the fitness, yoga and dance world, there are many interesting challenges hosted and sponsored by companies or fitness experts every month. Participating in a challenge is always a great way to work on a specific area fitness-wise, e.g. handstands, poleflow, pole tricks, discover new accounts, find more followers or simply be a part of a fun community where everyone shares the same interest.
So, from now on I will share with you my favourite monthly or weekly IG challenges that have to do with pole dance, yoga, fitness or general health improvement. And here they are for February:
#bemineomways: this is a challenge for yoga enthusiasts hosted by @monikakuriata, @saveserenityyoga, @gitayogaclothing, @artistic_fit, @mamaszen and @sheisstrongmalas. The challenge starts on February 1st and will last 4 weeks. To enter the challenge you have to follow any of these accounts, try one yoga pose per week and upload photos or videos that show your attempt. Each week the most dedicated participants will win clothing or other yoga-related stuff.
#RLNAtakeover2017 and #BITNBtakeover2017: These are two different 30-day, flexibility challenges hosted by the Cleo’s the Hurricane Rock and Pole group both on Facebook and Instagram. To join these challenges you have to own and use Cleo’s DVDs on legs and back conditioning and flexibility. The first one, the #RLNAtakeover2017 focuses on front and middle splits while the #BITNBtakeover2017 challenge has to do with backbending. You can try one of the challenges or combine both of them, which is a rather hardcore option. Personally I will try the #BITNBtakeover2017 as I want to focus on my back strengthening this February. To learn more, check the Rockin Legs n’ Abs closed Facebook group or the above-mentioned IG hashtags.
#sexypoledance: if you want to get creative by unraveling the sexy side of you, go and join this great IG challenge hosted by the amazing dancer, @carmineblackdance, the pole community, @poleparlour, and active pole wear brand, @vekkerla. Starting on February 6th, the challenge calls for weekly videos related to sexy floor work or pole play. If you like exotic, sensual dance, don’t miss it!
