I did practice Bikram this morning. I can’t say that I don’t like a posture or prefer another one. Even if I struggle with some I love the result of their practice on my body and my mind. I can easily say that I struggle A LOT with Locust pose. I struggle each time. I did some progress for sure if I think of my 1st Bikram class ever 😱. Probably a lot of progress. But years later, I still struggle. And I still practice. I could anyway probably say that I love Dandayamana Dhanurasana. Because it is a great heart opener and I love the stretch in my spine and my legs, and it reminds me when I was doing ballet. 💕💕 #happyinpineappleclothing #yoga #yogapose #yogaposes #yogapractice #yogaposture #yogaposition #standingbowpose #dandayamanadhanurasana #yogabalance #standingpose #dancerpose #stretch #keepkicking #kickup #heartopener #bikram #bikramyoga #focus #concentrate #breathe #yogaleggings #yogapants #backbend at Surbiton - Greater London

“The mantram is the bow, The aspirant is the arrow, Source is the target.” ~ Mundaka Upanishad • Standing Bow posture is a challenging practice tool for the balance of physical coordination and mental focus. This posture opens the chest and ribs, energizes the entire core body, builds strength in the rooted, supporting leg and stimulates communication between the chakras. At the same time, Standing Bow demands deep concentration in order to maintain the nuances of physical balance. • Try singing a difficult musical passage in this posture. Observe any changes to vocal flexibility, resonance, registration, or breath management. Notice if your mind is less concerned with attempts at “producing” your vocal sound and/or if your creativity is somehow freer to express itself in your singing. • Finally, consider: which parts of yourself are you aiming at your target? • #theyogavoice #yogavoice #standingbowpose #vocalvinyasa #voice #authenticvoice #vocalpedagogy #vocalpedagogyinstitute #lehighvalleyyoga #creativity #mantram #upanishads

I miss the sun! 🌞🌺🌻🌿 It’s been rainy the past couple of days, which actually has also felt nice. That sort of cleansing type of feeling! I’ve noticed such a change in my mood being near nature more, weather it be in the sun, the grass, being around flowers, feeling dirt, being near the water, accepting the rain on your skin. It just feels like home. So I try to make it a priority to do something in my day to connect with the nature. It’s truly therapeutic! 🌿🌿🦋🌻🌻✨💫 What part of nature keeps you relaxed and feeling magical? Are you more of the type to sit by the ocean? Or do you love being in a garden? Or is hiking near the mountains freeing for your soul? #connectingwiththeearth #connectingwithnature #sistersofyoga #blackgirlyogi #standingbowpose #standingbow #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #yogainthenature #yogainthesun #afrowitch #cottagewitch

Contrary to popular belief, flexibility and mobility doesn’t come naturally to me. Despite the fact I can execute head height kicks fairly easily, I have to work really hard to maintain it. 6 months ago I started Bikram Yoga and right from the start it highlighted how much I needed it. I remember sitting in the changing room after my first class and thinking “what the hell just happened”. Needless to say I found it extremely tough and I been through some tough training in my time. 6 months on I have made huge progress. The Standing Bow pose for example is not the easiest when you have tight hips, hamstrings and shoulders. The Standing Head to Knee pose I couldn’t even link my fingers on my foot 6 months ago. There’s still plenty of work to be done and improvements to be made but I love that. I love being a beginner at something and being the student again. If you haven’t tried Bikram I would highly recommend it. It’s improved not only my martial arts, my lifting and more importantly my mobility in daily life. #bikramyoga #bikramyogaleeds #standingbowpose #standingheadtoknee #alwayslearning #alwaysimproving

Yogastillinger har mange forskellige navne 👀 denne her kalder jeg for danseren, for det hed den til gymnastik, da jeg var en lille pige. Andre ville kalde den Stående Bue og andre igen noget helt tredje. Når alt kommer til alt, så synes jeg, at navnet er en smule underordnet. Navnene på stillingerne er for mig kun gavnlige i det omfang, at de hjælper mig i stillingen. Danserens navn er gavnligt fordi det gør stillingen mere morsom og giver mig et pejlemærke. Jeg kan forsøge, at føle mig graciøs og let som en danser. Det virker ikke altid, men jeg stiler gerne mod følelsen af at være en ballerina 😂😊🤸‍♂️🙏 #danseren #yogamedliv

sthira-sukham-asanam ||46|| स्थिरसुखमासनम् ॥४६॥ sthira-sukham-āsanam ॥46॥ Master Patanjali says that our asana practice should have two components: sthira and sukha. Our poses should be sthira - strong, established, stable, steady. And it should be sukha - sweet, comfortable, blissful. First we have to develop a strong foundation and from that the bliss will come. Stand Bow is a great example of this verse. It takes a lot of practice to develop the strength and the stability to hold standing bow. But once the stability is there the bliss that comes is better than almost anything. It feels like flying! Gina embodies this verse when she practices! You can catch her class twice tomorrow! 9:30 (26&2 Kendra) 12 (Hot Vinyasa Gina) 4:30 (Warm Vinyasa Gina) 6pm (26&2 Cathy) #standingbow #standingbowpose #dhanurasana #dandayamadhanurasana #balance #yogasutrasofpatanjali #yogasutras #yogasutra at Nirguna Yoga

Below are my five absolute necessities to a healthy and happy life. What are yours? — 1️⃣ Service to others — give, share, teach, or help other people. Even if you are completely self-interested, the truth is service is the key to happiness and fulfillment. 2️⃣ Personal growth — not to be confused with lack of contentment, growth means always remaining curious and feeding your inner student. Rest in assuredness on your path, but be hungry for more. 3️⃣ Loving relationships — you can obtain all the posessions, realize all your ambitions, and leave a major legacy, but if you have no deep personal and emotional connections to others, you will feel empty. 4️⃣ Devotion to something greater than yourself — when things inevitably get difficult, we need a guiding force that feels unshakeable to lean into. Make your service or your effort an offering, and you will find unlimited stamina. 5️⃣ Movement — to step into complete presence, embody your physical form. Breathe and move energy through the body. This is the easiest way to overcome attachment to the past or anxiety over the future. — Thanks to @dylanwerneryoga for posing this provocative question yesterday (with a very different personal list, I might add) and inspiring me to reflect on what matters! So, what are your top five? —— 📸 @sfreneenyc | wearing @yogangsters at Brooklyn, New York

Costa Rica - yoga retreat - every morning began with a 90 minute Bikram 26/2 yoga session in a beautiful outdoor setting. Although the series can be done by beginners as well as advanced practitioner, it takes dedication and concentration to master the postures. .

#Repost @puresukhayoga • • • • • Travelling throughout Namibia I made sure I found a spot to practice yoga even if it was only a few poses. This shot was taken not long after we had woken up and were travelling towards Etosha when we stopped to admire the landscape around us. Considering no stretches done prior, not a bad effort of a Standing Bow pose for first thing in the morning 🙏🏻 But man was it hot on this morning 😅 The heat coming off this rock was something else ! . . . #yogalove #bliss #myhappyplace #sukha #puresukhayoga #namibia #outdooryoga #yogini #igfit #yogaanywhere #yogainspiration #fitfam #yogaeverydamnday #standingbowpose #standingbow #dancerspose #flexibility #morningyoga #landscape #yogagirl #afroblonde_eco_collection #travel #travelboots #travellingyogini #holidays #scorchingrock #ecofootwear #sustainablefootwear at Namibia

Standing Bow Pose – Dandayamana-Dhanurasana Most yogis will agree that this is one of those poses that you either love, or you dread. Standing Bow is one of the hardest poses to master in the Classic/Hot Fusion series... but there are incredible benefits to this pose. It moves all the blood from one side of the body to the other, then back again. It develops balance, increases the size and elasticity of the rib cage, firms the abdominal wall and upper thighs. It improves the flexibility and strength of the lower spine. In addition to building patience, determination and concentration. There’s a reason you feel like a rockstar after this pose ♥️ #yoga #hotyogaclub #hycchico #standingbowpose #hotyoga #yogapractice #standingbow #yogateacher #chico #yogisofinstagram #yogi at Hot Yoga Club Chico

As in life, we actively work to find the balance. As in our yoga practice. The Road to the Standing Bow Pulling Pose is a tricky one. But...with concentration and patience we’ll be just fine. Danke an: @stella_ronja Namaste ❤️

This balance pad (@gocleveryoga) might be my new favorite yoga prop! I can tell practicing poses on this pad will help step my balance game to the next level. My husband has bad ankles from playing sports when he was younger. He would roll his ankles on anything that wasn’t flat ground. Like I have seen a Welcome Mat bring him to his knees 😆 He started using the balance pad during his workouts and he has already seen an improvement in his ankle strength. Don’t mind the camera shift. My daughter is back there talking to me. I would have left the sound on but she told me not to.

I just submitted my last assignment for Spring 2019 semester. One more class meeting stands between me and 13 whole days to focus on yoga without thinking about school. As a graduate student making a significant financial investment on my education and professional development, it is challenging to balance everything. 🎻 Standing bow is one of my favorite asanas for balance. What is funny about this photo is that I was standing on the side of a mountain stream and I’m not sure even the most poised yogi could have remained stable on the leaf covered silt, so I am a little shaky. 🏔 This Thursday, I am making another attempt at team teaching at Hot or Not Yoga Massage at 8pm. My first team teaching experience didn’t go well. I am so much better in private sessions...or so I tell myself. The pressure I perceived in that situation got the best of me and I could not get my words out. I never wanted to walk into that studio again but giving up isn’t an option. . . . #yoga #yogateacher #getbackupagain #feelthefearanddoitanyway #yogi #yogini #yogaeverywhere #mountains #mountainstream #wanderingyogi #asana #standingbowpose #standingbow #balancingposes #balance #astanga #yogaoffthemat #studioyoga #womanownedsmallbusiness #privateyoga #thestorieswetellourselves #beyondasana #gradstudent #mbastudent #gradschool #projectmanager at Hampton, Virginia
