Happy Saturday ☀️ Day 6 #AshtangaClosingAsanas Yoga Mudra These last postures of the Ashtanga closing series are traditionally practiced seating in Padmasana. However if for whatever reason you can’t seat in full lotus pose you can seat cross legged like I am showing here. The mudra we practice in this posture is the Jnana mudra - gesture of knowledge and to raise consciousness. . Check my lovely co-hosts!. .

Happy Friday ☀️ Day 5 #AshtangaClosingAsanas Sirsasana preparation pose I chose to do this prep pose as it is a great way of gaining strength in the arms and shoulders. Since I found out I had an herniated disc on my neck some years ago, I stopped practicing Sirsasana to avoid any injury, as it can put too much pressure on these discs. So always make sure that you support the weight of your body on your arms and not your head! . Make sure your body is supported on your arms and not on your neck! .

Happy Sunday ☀️ I started my day on the beach with my boys but the summer here is kind of shy, windy and not as warm as we would like to! . Day 7 and last day #YogisLikeToFly Your choice of flight! I chose Baby Bakasana, a posture that used to be very hard for me but now it comes quite easily.

Happy Saturday ☀️ I apologize for not being able to post the photos with the postures for this challenge before! Last week I ruptured my quadriceps muscle and was unable to practice. Now I am almost healed and finally posting Days 1-6 (swipe to see) #YogisLikeToFly . I had to modify some of the postures as I am also still healing from my hip surgery but I was quite happy with my progress in most postures! I am becoming stronger 🙌 .

✨ENERGY✨ Feminine sacred power - Kundalini . I am wearing a Kundalini Pranadrop from @orgonites_of_oz It is made from several powerful gemstones and orgonite. It harmonizes energy and stimulates all Chakras in the body, awakening Kundalini. . I have been wearing it for the last week or so and I can tell you that it has an amazing effect on my energy! It is almost indescribable. Together with the energetic work I have been doing to my self it is definitely contributing to my wellbeing. And it is a gorgeous peace! 💜 . I have been going through a big inner transformation. It started last year with chronic pain, then through my hip surgery and then the long recovery process. I realized I had to dig deep to understand why this was happening to me and I found the light! I know this sounds cheesy and a cliche, but it is the truth! . I finally decided it was time to follow the path I so many times heard calling for me but ignored. And so I did or am doing! I became much more aware of the energy that surrounds me and learned to feel it and use it to not only heal myself but also others! More soon... ✨ . . . . #orgo #ozorgonite #orgonite #pranadrop #spiritualjewelry #kundalini #gemstones #reiki #energyhealing #chakrahealing #yogalifestyle #myyogajourney #beagoddess #yoginilife #casashaktiaroeira

Day 4 #JuneSummerSunFun is Beach Babe with Mermaid pose I had to modify this one! Wishing for more beach days soon! . . I pulled my quadriceps muscle, with a micro- but very painful tear, so I have to take it easy in the next couple of days! I am so used to dealing with pain and restrictions to movement that I am taking this setback very well!

Day 2 #JuneSummerSunFun is Banana Splits I am actually not a big fan of this kind of dessert. I am more into a good vegan ice cream or any kind of raw tart. What is your favourite summer dessert? . Your pose of the day is Splits, something I always struggled with and usually practice modified and with props. But I got really surprised that only after almost 7 months post hip surgery I could actually go quite deep into my splits. So you know, I was very, VERY, cautious, listening to my body and respecting it at all times! . . ☀️Hosts: @RitaAYoga @Mikaila_NYC @Doll_Yogi_Grace @Sophie_Seoul_Yoga . ☀️Generous Sponsors: @KhromaHerbs @MarthaAcunaSportwear - my outfit @Sashka_Co @Shideawords @VyanaYogaDesign @Zenpolitan . ☀️Our Poses: Day 1 Sundial - Compass ✅ Day 2 Banana Split - Splits ✅ Day 3 Sundance - Dancer Day 4 Beach Babe - Mermaid Day 5 Sunbather - Lizard Day 6 Desert Walker - Camel Day 7 Sun Goddess - Goddess . . #yogaforeveryone #yogalifestyle #myyogajourney #fortheloveofyoga #letsstartyoga #practiceyoga #yogaheals #healingthesoul #myhealingjourney #yogaismylife #yogafreedom #yoginilife #yogaaroeira #yogaportugal
