Itโ€™s not a terrible pose. But yoga requires fine-tuned attention to what we are lacking, what improvements can be made. So here I observe...press the back heel down, lift the chest, deepen the front groins. Hey, at least my tailbone is in. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #awareness #yoga #conscious #prepare #precision #asana #alignment #veganlifestyle #plantbased #yogabody #practicenotperfection #warriorone #warriorpose #virabhadrasana #workplacewellness #corporateyoga #yogasession #yogalesson #yogastudent #SatyaYogaLLC #heartopener #hipopener #flexibility #yogainstructor #yogapose #yogaposture #namaste #aum at Maricopa County, Arizona

Near a bathtub of Israeli salt In bare feet Behind a closed door Behind a dead elm In the doorway of a Hindu temple In her pear hips and her pear belly With a pear in her hand and a pear in her mouth Beside the old willow, where fear meets longing She touches that terrible mysterious thing Some call Love at Chinchero, Cusco, Peru

My parents have the cutest grey finches. They had babies. Iโ€™ve been watching their mother feed them and keep them warm everyday. The first few days she wouldnโ€™t leave their side, and her partner brought all of them food. Grey finches are monogamous animals and mate for life. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Watching these birds love each other has touched my soul. My heart feels warm watching them cuddle, watching them talk. When I was younger my dogs had several litters but it didnโ€™t touch me the way this does now. I wasnโ€™t ready to see it. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Let the fruit ripen. Youโ€™ll enjoy it more. If the heart canโ€™t see it, itโ€™s not time yet. Be patient with yourself. Be patient with others. #patience #animals #animallovers #birds #wings #fruit #timing #ripe #heart #faith #smile #trust #godslessons #creation #life #incredible #universe #yoga #heartopener

How yogis use weights. #cbackstretch is such excellent for upper back and shoulders! Thank you ๐Ÿ™ @catie.brier.contortion for the inspiration! I have no idea if I did it correctly but it felt great! I will try to remember to do it every time I am somewhere that has weights! Wearing @nike pro shorts purchased from @jne_online_outlet inside Body 2000. These are one of my favorite shorts because I love the way they feel and fit. They are sexy and I love the style. #weights #flexibilitytraining #contortiontraining #backbend #chestopener #heartopener #shoulderopener #shoulderstretch #upperback #gymtime #nikeproshorts at Body 2000 Gym

๐Ÿ›๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ›ฃ Day 2๏ธโƒฃ7๏ธโƒฃ of #LegsForMiles with @cyogalife โžก๏ธ #HeadstandScorpion or #Vrschikasana in #Sirsasana ๐Ÿ›ฃ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ›Even though this isn't an easy pose (you knew it wouldn't be, though!), and despite it being a headstand variation, this modification keeps the cervical spine out of extension, emphasizing the opening in the thoracic + lumbar spine instead. As such, it's a great option if you want to keep weight off the neck/throat/chest. . For extra support (physical and/or mental), try this one in front of a wall; note that the closer you are, the more the wall will help, but at the expense of a deeper backbend. Set up for #sirsasana by setting your elbows down shoulders'-width apart, interlacing your fingers into either a goal post shape, or pressing your palms together. Place the crown of your head down between or in front of your palms, hug in through your inner elbows, and curl your toes under to lift your hips up. Walk your feet in towards your elbows and, without kicking, carefully bend your knees in towards your chest one at a time or together. Extend your legs, and then, ideally allowing your feet to separate no wider than outer-hips-width apart, begin to reach your toes away from your face into a backbend, keeping them straight and engaged. Your chest will need to move to counter the weight of your legs, so press your chest forwards as your legs reach back. Keeping legs straight as long as possible will help you find your deepest backbend, but you can bend the knees at any time, hugging your big toes (and eventually inner feet) together as you curl your toes in towards the back of your neck. . Attempting a big, full backbend without warming your body up properly forces the arch to the most naturally flexible parts of your spine, and here, that means it will all dump into your low back. Practice poses that work against gravity like #LocustPose, #BowPose, #Chinstand prep (or full) etc, in addition to stretching out your quads + hip flexors, and feel what a difference it makes in both the depth and relative comfort of your backbends. . ๐Ÿ“ธ : @tamalynannphotography at Just Be Yoga - Walnut Creek - Danville

"I encourage myself to actively work towards goals and self growth." This challenge couldn't have come at a better time for me. A whirlwind of things has been going on for me personally, especially the past few days, and I fully believe these daily intentions have helped me grow day by day. I have loved being able to take time and reflect on the intentions each day, as well as read all of your perspectives. I have come to a lot of new opportunities for personal growth through my reflection and personal devotional time, and I'm ready to get started. ๐ŸŒป Can't believe it's already the last day of #newspringnewstart ! I, along with my cohosts and sponsors I'm sure, am feeling so blessed by everyone that joined in this challenge!! I've appreciated everyone's insights and presence alongside me as we welcomed spring together. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• ๐ŸŒป The pose I'm currently working on is pincha!

. how do you hold s p a c e for yourself? . . most of my time is spent holding space for others. on the yoga mat, off the yoga mat, with my animals. my hands quite literally support people. I lift ribs and expand sacral plates; I traction necks and lengthen spines; I help them find their breath and their holding patterns. energy is a transaction. by the end of a day of teaching, my energy is usually zapped. I go home and take care of my sweet animals. again, placing my hands on them to offer love and energy. making sure brandy gets enough time outside. then I wonder, how the hell am I supposed to hold space for myself? sometimes I build walls around myself, cocooning myself in solitude. Iโ€™m working on softening those boundaries. trying to find ways to allow others to offer me the same support and energy that I offer up and trust it as genuine. on a day like today, I want to fold into that softness and be held in it. tonight I will continue to breathe on the L train, I will go home and cook and bathe and feed and walk the dog and get in bed and do it all again tomorrow. and in the spaces in between I allow myself to soften into my breath. in that softness, I will touch myself tenderly and remember that I give myself just as much love and energy as I offer to everyone around me. at Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Hoy decidรญ practicar una postura que hace mucho no practicaba. Creo que podrรญa considerarse como una variante con pared de #natarajasana o postura del bailarรญn. Por alguna razรณn (tal vez porque estoy chueca jajaj), mi lado derecho estรก mucho mรกs duro que mi lado izquierdo. Aรบn asรญ ,creo que he visto unos cambios sutiles de julio para acรก. En mi lado derecho, la pierna de atrรกs ya no estรก tan atrรกs, lo cual quiere decir que tengo un poco mรกs de apertura de pecho, ademรกs de que mi cuello puede irse mรกs hacia atrรกs que antes. En el lado izquierdo a pesar de que ya puedo tocar mi pie, me falta cuadrar un poco la cadera y abrir mรกs los hombros. Aรบn asรญ estoy muy contenta por el proceso y veremos si en los siguientes ocho meses hay otros cambios. Btw, si quieren intentar esta postura, asegรบrense de calentar muuucho. Para este punto ya llevaba mรกs de 50 minutos calentando la espalda y el pecho, asรญ que tรณmate tu tiempo :) . . . . . #backbends #backbendpractice #backbendprogress #transformationtuesday #beforeandafter #flexibilitytraining #dancerspose #natarajasanapose #natarajasanavariation #yogawithwall #heartopener #yogaprogress #yogajourney #yogatransformation

This felt soooo good for my hips, back, and chest. โค๏ธ . I feel as though Iโ€™ve been curled up in a ball for the past week. I hate being sick. Everything aches. It takes so much effort to peel myself out of bed or off of a chair. I have to force myself to stretch and sit up straight. But, Iโ€™m almost through it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ . Perhaps the most difficult part is being out of routine. I canโ€™t wait to join my people at @mantrayoga again! @allisonsmithwellness I am currently missing your awesome Flow class!! ๐Ÿ˜ซ . We just got our MCAS testing schedule.. boo standardized testing. I feel so bad for my kiddos. If an ELL has been in the USA for a year then they must take our states ELA, Math, and Science tests.. which are in English. Yet we still consider these kiddos newcomers. Why must we REQUIRE THEM participate in such an experience? I am anti-standardized testing, if you canโ€™t tell. ๐Ÿ˜ก . #halfpigeon #ardhakapotasana #teacherswhoyoga #yogaforeducators #eslteacher #ellteacher #bend #stretchandstrength #backbend #heartopener #sickandtired #standardizedtesting #yoga

Whenever I'm struggling or spiralling and I step on to my mat with no plan - it's always heart openers that I'm drawn to. Moving into new space, unburdening, stretching and flexing. Often your body knows what it needs- you just have to let it lead you. What's your go to when you feel lost and buried?

"The pose begins when you want to get out of it". - Baron Baptiste . . . This quote describes how I feel right now. FINALLY after a lot of backbends it works! My first underarm wheelpose ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™ sometimes I'm soo afraid of falling down and hurt my head, back whatever, but you know what? You have to get out of your comfort zone and trust, but especially believe in yourself. So thankful for this ๐Ÿ™ . . . . #urdhvadhanurasana #wheelpose #underarmpose #yoga #yogalove #yogapassion #yogini #swissyogi #yogainspiration #heartopener #yogaonmymat #yogaeveryday #yogaeverywhere #yogagirl #swissyogi #letsstartyoga #yogaloveflow #asana #buddha #trustyourself #believeinyourself #selfconfidence #selflove #happyyogini #vayumudra #vayumudratribe . .

How we doing? I feel like so many people are struggling lately. Or always? Or is this our new normal? Does life feel harder now than it was for past generations? Iโ€™m not talking war times of course, just overall living times. Like odds are stacked against us. I know I spent part of my sleepless night - which Iโ€™ve had a lot of lately - crying. Feeling so overwhelmed with doubt & uncertainty & anxiety. Is my kid normal? Is my husband doing the right thing? Are my friends okay? Am I okay? Fear about the future / regret over the past. These weird images that only make an appearance at 4am. Feeling like an asshole b/c I can be so sunshiny & hopeful on the Instagram & then wanting to call bullshit. I feel that with teaching yoga a lot too. Preaching the good word but feeling like youโ€™re losing your personal grip on existing. But itโ€™s good to try, right? To cheer each other on. It can be hard to put yourself out there. To teach yoga or to be creative or to talk about your skin care line without feeling like an asshole sometimes. You believe in it & you keep showing up but sometimes these imaginary voices of people making fun of you creeps in. Your own self consciousness. Your own resistance to the present moment. Makes you want to hide behind your hair & get a desk job at a cubicle in the back & just be LESS YOU & to be okay with that. Sometimes that sounds downright delicious to just blend & be. But then thereโ€™s that fire, that passion, those things that stir excitement & expose your personal truth & you know you canโ€™t hide. But that doesnโ€™t protect you from ANXIETY. The whole human experience that brought me to this post. And then this post took off & I truly am not quite sure what the hell I am writing here but I feel like you get it.

๐Ÿ•บโš—๏ธ๐Ÿ— Day 1๏ธโƒฃ5๏ธโƒฃ of @cyogalife #ShoulderConnections with Supta Bhekasana or Reclined Frog Pose ๐Ÿ—โš—๏ธ๐Ÿ•บ Part 2๏ธโƒฃ: Hereโ€™s a little video to see what all the fuss is about as I think you donโ€™t get a good idea of the hand to feet action in the picture if you havenโ€™t seen this pose before (I hadnโ€™t - can you imagine?). This is a rare video with sound as I wasnโ€™t playing any copyrighted music in the background and for full transparency how arduous the process behind the best shot pictures is. Iโ€™m making some funny sounds as I myself really couldnโ€™t believe what I was doing there. Donโ€™t worry my non-yogi friends, the loud way of breathing is called Ujjayi breath and itโ€™s totally fine and helpful. #yoga #homepractice #practiceandalliscoming #suptabhekasana #bhekasana #reclinedfrog #reclinedfrogpose #frog #frogpose #backbend #heartopener #backbendsaremyhappyplace #shoulderopener #shouldermobility #quadstretch #hipflexorstretch #cyoga #cyogalife #carmenmademedoit #dasguteleben #thegoodlife #theuniversehasyourback

It feels like when one idea enters, my brain doesnโ€™t have enough time to shut the door before a thousand others fly into the room. I have a hard time making decisions, and I over analyze every small thought crawling through my fingers, looking for its hidden messages, even when thereโ€™s none to be found. The disdain of not being able to solve over-thinking WITH thinking creates . . . . . . A N X I E T Y . . Massive, hurricane-colored, heart-murmuring anxiety. And the jumbled up words pile up on each other, interrupting the next sentence with another catastrophic thought that isnโ€™t-even-really-happening-but-what-if-itโ€™s-going-to until Iโ€™m crawling into a tiny corner yelling at myself to shut up and get it together for Christโ€™s sake. . . . . . If Iโ€™m not careful with my thoughts this will happen - Every. Day. The only difference in every day or just 50% of days is learning how to breathe. How to sometimes say, โ€œokay, this is some real-life bulls*** but whatever, you have to pick yourself up.โ€ And writing about things to be thankful for, or maybe that pissed you off so itโ€™s not inside anymore. And realizing you canโ€™t fix or control all the suffering in the World, but listening to someoneโ€™s story about their recent heartbreak, or awkward run-in, or how much they love their dog seems to help. And suddenly .... the heart is slow - breathing is soft - and I realize that surrender is not always a massive leap, but tiny, incremental moments of exhaling and meaning it.

๐Ÿ•บโš—๏ธ๐Ÿ— Day 1๏ธโƒฃ5๏ธโƒฃ of @cyogalife #ShoulderConnections is Supta Bhekasana or Reclined Frog Pose ๐Ÿ—โš—๏ธ๐Ÿ•บ Honestly, I didnโ€™t even know this pose existed before trying it for todayโ€™s entry. I love regular Bhekasana, so how hard can it be? LOL, freaking hard. I had to do some research to get into it at all as the feet and hand placement is quite tricky. Itโ€™s been so complicated and arduous that I kind of forgot about the actual backbend first. I tried a few times so this is a calmer more competent attempt. If you look closely you can see the slight unevenness in my backbend as in the Matsyasana version a few days ago. But I surely couldnโ€™t be bothered to cope with that right now ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿธ๐Ÿ˜… #yoga #homepractice #practiceandalliscoming #suptabhekasana #bhekasana #reclinedfrog #reclinedfrogpose #frog #frogpose #backbend #heartopener #backbendsaremyhappyplace #shoulderopener #shouldermobility #quadstretch #hipflexorstretch #cyoga #cyogalife #carmenmademedoit #dasguteleben #thegoodlife #theuniversehasyourback

You learn something (or seek to) every day. Today I learned that this pose, which Iโ€™ve been practicing and teaching for years, had a proper Sanskrit name. Dandayamna bharmasana. Itโ€™s a mouthful but fun to say. It would make a great cocktail party tongue twister. So Day 2 of #theforgottenasanas is bird dog pose. . ๐Ÿ˜† hosts @chelisa.marie @geeoice_yoga @kutzms @northernstar_yoga @sarka.yoga . ๐Ÿ’ sponsors @yobaby_hk @ajnawellbeing @dharma_malas @yogapaws . Day 1: Rabbit pose / sasangasana ๐Ÿ‡ Day 2: Bird dog pose / dandayamna bharmanasana ๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿถ Day 3: Horse face pose / vatayanasana Day 4: Wind relieving pose / pavamuktasana Day 5: Upward facing plank / purvottanasana Day 6: Revolved hand to big toe / parvritta hasta padagusthasana Day 7: Reclined cow face / supta gomukhasana at San Diego, California
