Sleepy bear- On warmer days you will often see bears like the one I’ve captured here.. sprawled out in the snow or ice on their backs with their feet in the air. They might make a day bed or pit by digging out snow or ice to curl up in & provide a little protection from the wind. Like us humans polar bears will sleep between 7-8 hours a day. In spring & summer bears tend to sleep more in the day & are more active during the night. They will nap just about anywhere at any time, especially after eating. By napping it helps them conserve energy and polar bears are all about this. . Eat, sleep & conserve energy for the next hunt. And of course after waking up from a long winters nap there is nothing like a great stretch to get yourself moving again. And it is the polar bear stretch (yoga bear) that makes every second of waiting patiently for 7-8 hours worth every single moment. So if you are fortunate enough to witness a sleeping polar bear, don’t give up and move on so quickly. Your patients is often rewarded with wonderful polar bear antics as they stretch it out!

#2weeksofpincha Day 3 – is all about chest opening here we go with some : cactus twists + (my bonus downdog pulses) +30 sec puppy pose +15 sec pincha Your chest muscle when right will pull your deltoids forward leading to bad posture. Mean hunched kinda look, no good. To fixthat to be able to keep our shoulders where they should be and working well give these exercises a go 😁. First clip = Cactus twists : - Keep elbows even or slightly above shoulders when the ground - Twist slowly towards the Cactus - Relax your head and bring leg over for additional awesomeness Downdog pulses: - Open your chest with movement - No engagement just allow your muscles to bounce you back Vid 2 = Puppy pose & Everyday we hold some pincha we are on our last day at 15 seconds. And as always: Rules / appreciated : 1.Post a picture or video on your feed every day with us 😁 2.

• ADHO MUKHA SVANASANA • . Hi friends!! I know this challenge already ended days ago but I still have some days to catch up! 😁 These days have been crazy but I think I’m ready to get back to this platform and connect with you all again! ☺️💪 . So for Day 8 of #BreakDownSunSal ☀️ challenge is Adho Mukha Svanasana or Downward Facing Dog! 🐕 . After Upward Facing Dog, we roll the toes down, push the floor and bring the hips towards the sky for Downward Facing Dog. What’s important here? - Push the floor with the entire hands and fingers; - Stretch your chest and armpits by bringing the chest towards the thighs; - tilt the pelvis forward so you can have a neutral spine - by tilting the hips, we may have to release the tension of the hamstrings, so the knees can be bent; - only in the end, with all the alignment above, we can start to stretch the knees and bring the toes towards the floor. . Hope you find this useful!! And if you have any doubts please DM me!! ☺️😘❤️ _____ Hosts : @itsmyoga @namastayme @shylasvsyoga @sarahuactive . Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves ________ ☀️POSES: 1 - tadasana ✔️ 2 - urdhva tadasana ✔️ 3 - uttanasana ✔️ 4 - urdhva uttanasana ✔️ 5 - high plank ✔️ 6 - chaturanga ✔️ 7 - upward dog ✔️ 8 - downward dog ✔️ 9 - utkatasana (sun sal B) MICHELA 10 - Warrior I (for sun sal B) SARA 11 - sun sal A (flow with eyes blind folded) SHEILA 12 - sun sal B (flow with eyes blind folded) MJ _______ #adhomukhasvanasana #downdog #downwarddog #downwardfacingdog #beagoddess #yogaalignment #letsstartyoga #yogaathome #selftaughtyogi #bealigned #posturecorrector #yogaportugal #inflexibleyogis #ashtangi

Welcome to day 4 of #mindfulomies with downward dog! 😁 If you have some recovering hamstring tendonitis like me or even just tight hammies, don’t hesitant to bend those legs so that you don’t lose the lengthening of the spine! 😁 I actually need to move my feet out just a bit looking at this; shorter downward dogs felt more comfortable for the shoulder at first, and I catch myself doing it sometimes again. 😊 But remember, this yoga journey is about learning and growth, not perfection. ☺️😘 So today I woke up super grateful for Lily Bug. 💕 She really is a sweet girl and the apple of our eyes!😁💕🐶 She is a rescue pulled from the floodwaters following Hurricane Harvey. When we first got her she had heart worms, tapeworms, had never been spayed. She crawled across our doorstep for days, because she seemed afraid she would get hit from coming into the house. 😢And now she is our little snuggle bug, squirrel huntress, yoga partner, and little protector of her family. 😊❤️ And favorite subject of my instagram stories! 😁😂 This morning she went for a long squirrel hunt with daddy, and then I wiped her down from all the mud when she returned. 😂❤️ We take family walks every day, and it is my favorite moment of the day. 💕 I completely underestimated the joy a dog could bring, and I might get a little teary writing this..... she has my heart wrapped around her little paw for sure. ❤️💕☺️ . . . . ⇣ HOSTS: @gentlesoulyogi @kelleyapril @yoginiinheels @yogi_liza @_monette SPONSORS: @aloyoga @alo.moves . ✨✨✨✨✨ ⇣ . . . . #downwarddog #downwardfacingdog #aloyogachallenge #aloyoga #yogachallenge #yogalife #yogagirl #injuryrecovery #igyogacommunity #igyogafam #instayoga #yogini #yogisofinstagram #yogaeveryday #yogaoutside #yogapractice #fitlife #keepitreal #shinebright #yogaaddict #yogaphotography #yogastrong

Bound-dog Tutorial 🐶 Swipe to see how I get into it💁🏼‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ ⠀ This is great pose that opens the hips, shoulders, and back, all while testing your balance and sense of humor. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think! ⠀ New class on my Playbook App (link in my bio👈🏻) up now called ‘Flow into Bound Dog’ is a great way to work the necessary muscles to get you into this pose. And remember, whether or not you can hold the pose for a millisecond or a full minute, YOU can benefit from the class! 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️

Reflections🌺 Pose Tip: Equal weight on hands on feet. Play around and see how it feels when you shift weight on just hands or one hand or just legs. One of my teachers, Mr.Bharat Sharma, always said in his classes, play around.

Faith 🎑 Faith is something that when tested you show yourself how strong you can be. This one struck a nerve deep in my heart and soul, that I had no idea I would feel. Until I had to answer this question and think about it. Before this year I would have said my faith in believing the process was strong and just something that came naturally, no second thoughts. But, between having to mend a broken heart, a broken bone and then just the everyday bullshit life throws at you my faith was tested more than it has been in quite a long time. I did loose my faith this year, for a short time. I could feel myself slipping into the deep dark depths of emptiness, I was aware of what was happening. At first I tried to deny all of it, eventually I stopped burrying it all away and I let myself feel all of it. Because, sometimes you just have to stop fighting the process and instead immerse yourself in it, so that you can truly understand it. Hopefully the next time, because there will be a next time, I will understand it all a little better and will have the tools of wisdom and the new trust in faith to deal with it in amore healthy way. Day five of #MotherEarthMothers was a few days ago, but it took me some serious thinking to come up with a real answer. Much love to you all 😘💕✨🎑 . Hosts: @faithfoxmama 💋 @stardivakhushi . . Sponsors: @onzie @soultrees @brigidsgrove @loveprayjewelry @insideoutsideoutsidein . 5. Faith: I believe in the process of life to bring only good to me - Any inversion/inverted pose. 🙏 6.

Day 3 #embraceyourChakra “I feel empowered “ solar plexus activation by core asanas like #downwarddog . “Your Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra is the third Chakra located in your abdomen, above your belly button. It is the energy center responsible for personal power, self-esteem and confidence. Place your hands over your stomach. Imagine your Solar Plexus Chakra as a ball of yellow light glowing in your abdomen. With each breath, imagine yellow light entering your body and going straight to this area, making it glow even brighter. As your Solar Plexus begins to radiate, your confidence and personal power will become stronger. Now imagine the yellow light from your Solar Plexus begins to spread throughout your body. Every muscle and every cell is being wrapped in this warm, glowing yellow light. Feel yourself becoming more and more empowered.” . I belive inGod I am a wife I am a mother of 3 healthy children I have a degree in psychology I am an immigration enforcer I am a yoga practitioner I am a CrossFit enthusiast I am bilingual I am a public speaker/spokeswoman for a great agency I am a magical woman ✨ I am me with many imperfections and qualities . But You know what empowers me? Not all of these things, titles and labels 🏷 but The WILL to keep trying, to keep going !
