A few years ago, Shruthi Jain took to yoga to fight upper back pain. Today, she is inspiring her followers in India and abroad to stay fit through yoga.

Bengaluru based Shruthi Jain was 16 when she first started running with her father.

After completing her education -- she graduated from Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies -- she took up a job in the city. After working for two years, she developed pain in the upper back.

She quit her job and took up yoga as part of a teacher's training programme.

Once she started training students, there was no looking back for her. 

Today, the 30 year old is an accomplished yogini and an international marathon runner -- she is a Boston qualifier. 

Some of Shruthi's poses are tough to pull off, but boast of her immense strength and flexibility.

Check out these jaw dropping pictures and yoga poses from her Instagram:
