Megan is South African but based in Dubai, and she’s one of the most followed accounts because her poses are elegant, graceful and look extremely difficult. Her fitness focus is on crossfit, yoga and calisthenics.

The UAE-based blogger does intense weights, calisthenics, and all sorts of poses we can’t even begin to understand. She’s also the global education director at the World Calisthenics Organization, so fitness is her profession. When you see what she’s doing at the gym, it’ll make you realize that half an hour on the treadmill isn’t something to complain about.

This is really a Saudi sportswear brand, but they post a lot about active women and host events, so following this account is a sure way to keep up to date. It also doesn’t hurt that the women in their photos are #goals.

I've realized that it takes me a good few days to transition between an old and new year. A lot of work on letting go of what no longer serves took place in December, and it's been a blessing for me to sit down and just chill the last 3 days and let the universe do it's work. It is humbling to slow down, to observe, to surrender and just be then you witness magic! Be it energy shifts, be it found clarity, be it new wisdom. I found myself in handstand this evening, one inside a door frame, very much supported from all sides, and the thought in my head was, at this moment in time, this is my best work, this is my handstand, and it's a perfect one! #LetGo #SelfTrust #Surrender #Energy #LoveLife #AlwaysDoYourBest #TheFourAgreements #Yoga #Yogini #YogaJourney #YogaPractice #AdhoMukhaVrksasana #Handstand #Balance #Namaste
