Ever seen a lion doing a ‘down dog’? A lemur doing the ‘lotus position’? Or how about a person attempting a ‘one handed tree pose’ on a termite mound?

The theme: Wild African Yoga
We invite you to submit your photographs that show people or animals doing yoga in the African bush! The best of these will be published by us in a website gallery and /or on our social media pages, along with other submissions. Note that the emphasis on this feature will be fun and light-hearted.
How to submit:
♦ Send your photographs (maximum three per email) to yourAGfeature@africageographic.com along with the following details:

♦ Title of photograph(s)
♦ A caption that tells us more about:
1. The photograph(s) – what is happening in the scene, who/what is doing the yoga pose.
2. Where it was taken in Africa (location).
3. The pose – if you can name the yoga pose even better!
♦ Please keep your photographs in line with the theme: People and animals in Africa performing yoga poses.
♦ Please limit the submissions to three per email. You may send in as many emails as you wish.
♦ Size and format: Under 2Mb per photograph, JPG format.
