Life is too short to be anything but HAPPY💕😻😊😃 I’m sure you have heard this before and I’m here to tell you it is TRUE!! Any moment spent stressed out, angry, etc. is a moment that could have been spent in PEACE instead! Sometimes we allow our thoughts to take the steering wheel🙅🏻♀️ but that can end as soon as you are ready for it. Everything you need to feel at peace is within you.. everything effecting that beautiful place within is what surrounds you and the experiences you have. Once this clicks you become so aware of this and the stresses of day to day life will no longer touch that inner peace and you will realize you can be happy...always🖤 #beloveseelovespreadlove
COLD/ As I am taking some time for myself by learning new teachings including the ones of the wonderful @hollyniemela, I am discovering the power of confronting ourselves to the cold. Shifting our mindsets to find ease in what we thought would be impossible to do. I love those confronting experiences that only makes you understand that the power is within you. Could you recall any kind of those ? More to come tomorrow for the ice bath experience ! ❄️😬
Hey, let's twist again! Its already day 6 of our #ThankfulForYin challenge and today we are twisted! 💫💫💫 Twists are postures that generally involve moving the shoulder girdle to face in an opposing direction in relation to the hips. There are different twists that target the upper, middle and lower portions of the torso, all having their own unique set of health benefits. 💫It improves digestive function and a it is great detoxification. When you are in a twist, you will be essentially compressing your digestive organs - placing them under weight. This will cause a lack of circulation. When you release your twist there will be a rush or fresh blood that will flood your digestive organs. Fresh blood flow equals fresh oxygen and nutrients. Twisting will increase blood flow to the digestive organs, thus increasing their ability to function. 💫 It maintains normal spinal rotation. The muscles and other tissues that surround the spine can become stiff overtime. This will lead to a decreased range of motion, pain and discomfort that can really affect quality of life. Practicing twisting postures helps to keep the spinal muscles mobile, helping to keep you mobile as well. 💫 Twists help to reduce your back pain. It stretchrs and strengthenes the back muscles which can provide serious relief from the back pain caused by everyday life. 💫 It is a great de-sress. Twists are wonderful postures if you deal with stress or anxiety. These postures will help to open the chest, shoulders and back, all of which can help to decrease feelings of anxiousness. You will be releasing stored tension in the body as you twist, which can have a positive effect on your mental state. You will get double the benefit if you combine your twist with slow, rhythmic breathing as well. 💛💛💛 Thankful Hosts: @sabine.appleby @yoga_blake @dr_kaufman @cassydoesyoga @yogiescape 💛💛💛 Generous Sponsors: @sahajanskincare @bohemian_island @earthrunners @tonic_cbd @embracetheblock @yogi_pod — Day 1: Hip Opening Stretch ✔ Day 2: Shoulder Stretch ✔ Day 3: Back Stretch ✔ Day 4: Inner Groin Stretch ✔ Day 5: Foot Stretch ✔ Day 6: Twisting Stretch ✔ Day 7: Hamstring Stretch
Children are sponges - they soak up everything they see, they copy and imitate, they are impressionable and sensitive to the wealth of input around them. ______ Working in the field of child development, I spent a long time studying the complexity of children growing up in less than ideal circumstances - poverty, disasters, war, violence and other stresses. I have to say that becoming a parent and seeing the development of my own daughter has shed new light on everything I thought I knew as a professional in the industry. Where the focus has often been on the external circumstances - living conditions, food, politics, education etc - I now place equal emphasis on the internal health of children. _____ When a baby is born, whether it’s in the slums of India or the suburbs of an affluent neighborhood, they begin a process of absorbing the energy from those around them. It should be our goal as a generation to make sure our children are exposed to love, compassion, and kindness from the very start. When their sponge is filled with love and kindness, they are most resilient to withstand the hardships they will face in our harsh world. It won’t take away the struggles, but it will make the struggles seem less daunting.
Happy Caturday 🐱🐱🐱💕 . I've always have had a cat in my life since the day I was born :) ❤ . The most I've had at once is 3. I think the perfect number is 2.

Today’s been a good day! I got up and run some errands, got home and practiced yoga for almost 2 hours. Took som extra time to move slowly, being very gentle with my poor left side (I pulled a muscle on my butt last week- ouch) and I also took a couple of photos (this one). There’s something about an extended practice in the morning that really lifts my mood. I feel so much calmer and more grounded and relaxed during the day. I now just got home from a walk outside in this beautiful sunny weather and feel blessed af! What are your plans for today? Sending you lots of love! 💕 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #yoga #yogapic #yogagirl #yogapractice #yogacommunity #yogagram #igyoga #instayoga #igyogafam #luviyo #saturdayvibes #practiceyoga #takeiteasy #todayisagoodday #namaste #strikeapose
Want to learn how to loosen up your back and legs (gain flexibility + remove pain)? Read below for full details and for more, check out the ebook (link in bio) 🙏🏻❤️ #Yogateacher @adellbridges ・・・ Tight hamstrings? Keep reading! . . It may not be your hamstrings at all. Or at least not the only thing holding you back in your forward folds. Literally “holding you back” is ALL the stuff along the back line — from your head to your toes! . . So instead of focusing on just the postures that lengthen the hamstrings, bring attention to your feet, calves, glutes, and ESPECIALLY the back and even the neck . . It’s also worthwhile to get the hip adductors (inner thighs) lithe too, because if they’re tight then your hamstrings will feel it! . . Swipe for some examples of postures that open up these areas . . Things to note: • forward bending postures need not always be done with a “straight” spine. Allow the spine to curve and use engagement of your abdominal muscles to do so; this will, over time, work to change the structure of your fascia (the stuff holding you back) and lengthen the back and neck tissues • Pick your toes up as much as you can in postures like pyramid, downward dog, and standing forward fold, to stretch the feet • Keep the leg muscles engaged in your seated postures — it’s not time to relax here. It should be as active as if you’re standing! • MOST IMPORTANT: these are just ✨examples✨ There are a ton more postures that will help. So just KEEP PRACTICING 😄 and moving daily . . And 🌬breathe🌬 . . Hope you find this helpful!
Do something that scares you once in a while. . And doing it with a friend you trust to hold you up helps a lot as well.

You know what I can never get enough? Exploring new places. The older I get the more I appreciate what the country that I’m from has to offer. I LOVE Czech and Slovak countryside, nature, towns, castles and cities. Sure, traveling far is exciting but traveling locally can be pretty cool too. Don’t you think? 😊 #ONANDOFFTHEMAT
