(Source: Instagram)There are a ton of beautiful images floating around Instagram, but nothing comes close to impressing us like these yoga accounts that combine athleticism with grace. We've rounded up five of our favorite advanced yogis with incredible skill for some fitness motivation in the new year. (Seriously—you have to be extremely focused, strong and flexible to be able to strike a pose on a mountain top. Don't try these at home.)

This NYC yogi strikes a pose wherever and whenever the mood strikes—Washington Square Park, at the office and on vacation in Aruba in front of the crashing waves. #StopDropandYoga has never looked so good.

It's obvious these fitness buffs love yoga just as much as they love each other. Any yogi couple can appreciate their incredible partner poses.

Mermaid or yogi? You decide. This Bahamian babe boasts a love of free diving and yoga, which she often combines for her breathtaking photos.
Gordon Ogden, @gordonogden
This yoga pro has no fear. Off of the side of a building or on top of a giant boulder, he's conquered all settings. Plus, he often brings his daughter and little yogi Willow along for the fun.
Kristen Rose Provenché, @kristenpro
We adore this California native for both her yoga and photography skills. It also doesn't hurt that the 21-year-old beauty shoots her fluid movements in the most stunning locations.
