Please list yourself if you are a model that can do yoga. If we get enough listings, I will organize it by location.

You don't have to be a crazy, bendy person, but you should be able to do all the basic poses. In other words, if you can do a hand stand, or other inversions, you should be on this list.

I'm not advanced but have been doing basic yoga to keep flexibility/mobility after destroying my body through ballet and break dancing tongue

Some of the best yogis I have photographed have been dancers who came to yoga to heal injuries, and stayed on to become teachers.

I only do Bikram.  The poses are not the same throughout all types of yoga, however.  So, asking for "all the basic poses" doesn't hold much value as some types of yoga are not as visually stunning as others.

I do yoga and tae kwon do. I'm pretty stretchy and flexible but I cannot do a handstand or a split

Sandra, its true there are different types of yoga. But when a model goes to a casting for a yoga shoot, there are some common yoga poses they are expected to be able to do.

As a photographer who has shot dozens of yoga magazine covers over the past nine years, I have been at more castings than I can remember. Maybe it would be helpful to models reading this to know the poses they may be asked to do for digital polaroids at a casting:
