I have been getting a LOT of requests for stretches/trick tutorials, so today I want to talk about WHY I don’t do tutorials or otherwise teach through IG.⠀ ⚪️⠀ As a contortion coach, I feel that it would be irresponsible for me to post instruction because there are so many things I would look at when assessing whether or not a student is ready for things like cheststand, deep backbending progressions, needle, etc. When I work with students and start to figure out what they should be working on, I take into account their strength, coordination, body control, background, and body type, in ADDITION to flexibility. And even after making assessments I HEAVILY spot tricks and give very personalized detail and instruction to ensure they’re doing the stretches/tricks in the safest way possible. I’m also able to give feedback, which is something I don’t have time to do on IG. Getting feedback from a coach is SO important, and giving instruction without being able to give feedback is something I don’t feel comfortable doing.⠀ ⚪️⠀ Instagram tutorials should be used to SUPPLEMENT formal training, and I worry that a lot of people rely solely on tutorials on IG and YouTube. And although it can be hard to find good flexibility/contortion coaches, you really should find a coach who you respect and has a good reputation and work with them. Working with a good coach is the best way to reach your goals and ensure you are training in a safe way. If traveling isn’t an option for you, a lot of people teach online now. So there are options!⠀ ⚪️⠀ As far as tutorials for stretching/active flex drills goes: I have worked for years to create a cohesive curriculum for flexibility training that really works. I will post an exercise here or there, but I prefer not to as all the exercises/stretches I do work best when done together, and taking one exercise out of context really doesn’t give you the full picture of how your training should look to really see improvement, or train safely. If you’re really serious about your flexibility training it’s well worth investing in, whether it’s with me or someone else!⠀ ⚪️⠀ I hope this makes sense, but feel free to drop questions in the comments!👇

I will never be the best at anything, therefore I am always a student at everything! Thank you Master @miguel_hand_balance for training my hand balancing this month, not only have I learned some new great techniques but you have also given me inspiration from your passion towards the practice! Much love brother ❤️🤸🏻‍♂️ . If you are in Melbourne Australia at the end of the month and want to join Miguel’s epic training check out his page for details. .

Bütün ''hazır olmamalar'', bütün ''zamana ihtiyacım varlar'' anlaşılabilir, ama sadece bir süre için. Gerçek şu ki, asla bir ''tamamen hazır olma'' söz konusu değildir, asla bir gerçekten ''doğru zaman'' yoktur. Bilinçdışına her inişte olduğu gibi, öyle bir zaman gelir ki, sadece en iyisi umularak burun sıkı sıkıya kapatılır ve en derin sulara atlanır. Clarissa P. Este

*PINCHA PRESS DRILLS* . . #angelasyogatutorials . . . . . This is going to be short and sweet, but wanted to share a few thoughts on this pose after teaching it today. . . 1. Pressing into the pose with my head slightly more “tucked in” than I have had in the past. (Thanks to @acromegan) this allowed me to remain less arched in the upper back. I know it looks like my head is resting on my hands, but I promise it is just the angle. This allows me to press and compress my body much easier. When you arch you lose your compression which makes you “hinge” at your hips. This causes the legs to kick out behind you rather than compress towards your midsection on the way up. . . 2. In forearm plank strongly push the floor away and shift forward and then press back. This is the same action you will need in the press. To stay protracted as your shoulders shift forward. . . 3. The next step is to try this action again in dolphin pose! . . 4. Then, tip toe your feet back into forearm plank and then forward into dolphin. All the while continue to press the floor away with your forearms and hands and keep your shoulder blades strongly protracted (spreading away from one another) Resist your shifting your shoulders forward as you walk your feet to your hands. Keep pushing them towards your legs as you engage your core and lift your hips. You will need to find this same resistance of the shoulders when you press up. . . 5. My friend and fellow teacher @buddhiyogini did this entry in class and it is a great way to work the pose if straddle is not your thing. 🙌🤸‍♀️ Good luck! 👍🍀 . #pinchamayurasana #pincha #pinchadrills #yogagirl #inversions #inversionjunkie #yogavideo #yogavideos

I don’t belive in dogma, but I do belive, that everybody when they find their right path, can reach peace of mind, joy, hapiness I don’t belive that there is one right technique, but I do belive in respecting the teacher you decided to study with, trying what he suggest and after some time decide if it works and you gonna stick with it, or let that go. I don’t belive that we have to reach every goal we set, but I do belive in trying, in putting our energy and time in whatever we feel as important, as our calling. I don’t belive in being happy all the time, in fact I think that it’s not even possible, without dark there would be no light, therefore without sadness, without moments we feel down, there could be no moments, when we are joyfull. But I also belive, that at the moments of feeling “not on the top of the world” you find who is your real friend, and you can find who you really are...that makes these moments very important. And if you at that point right now, you can just be sure, that it will be better - sooner or later. As my wedding ring says: “This too shall pass” The key is to not to take pretty much anything too seriously 😉 🇨🇿 Neveřím v dogmata. Věřím ale, že každý můžeme dojít ke klidné mysli a radostnému životu. Když pochopíme, jakou cestou se k máme vydat - tahle cesta se může být pro každého jiná. Nevěřím, že existuje jedna správná technika. Věřím ale, že když si nekoho vybereš jako učitele, měl bys respektovat jeho styl a to, co učí. Dát si čas na to, vyzkoušet, co doporučuje a až po nějaké době se rozhodnout jestli to pro tebe funguje, nebo ne. A pak v tom buď pokračovat, nebo to nechat plavat. Nevěřím v to, že bychom měli dosáhnout každého cíle, který si vytyčíme. Věřím ale, že když nám něco přijde důležité, měli bychom tomu věnovat čas a energii a udělat vše, co je na našich momentálních silách. Nevěřím v to, že bychom měli být pořad jen šťastní. Věřím ale v to, že každý moment, kdy se necítíte úplně v pohodě nám ukazuje, jak skvělé pak je, když se to zase otočí. Protože bez tmy bychom neměli světlo. Stejně tak bez smutku, bychom nemohli rozpoznat radost. Nabíc tyhle momenty, kdy jsme “na dně” nam často ukáží,...pokrač.v komentářích

Slow and steady. After doing a two weeks intensive Mysore practice with my teacher @susanna.finocchi.3 I really got to discover patterns in my mind while practicing. Discovered the importance of having a teacher guiding me on my journey and keep me focused. Discovered how and why I love this practice so much. I grateful, thank you for guiding me 🙏🏽

“You deserve to be thrilled and exhilarated every day!” - Ana Forrest. Daily practice will also help you build the strength and courage necessary to invert. . Ana recommends starting with just three poses a day. Practice Down Dog at the wall, Handstand with a spotter or at a wall, and, finally, Handstand away from the wall to work on balancing. . . . #inversions #forrestyoga #inversionjunkie #getupsidedown #anaforrest #handstands . .

Как мы готовились к Италии. Он: —куда будет отпуск? Она: — Италия. Он: — город? Она: Рим. Он: а в Риме что? Она: Колизей. 😌 Конец. Больше мы ничего искали и не смотрели заранее. Никаких специальных спойлеров. Бронь хостела и загрузили город на мапс.ми. Остальное делает Рим. И люди в нем. Задавать вопросы на ресепшене, читать Гугл, следовать рекомендациям людей бывавших тут, эти опции на выбор. Но, да в основном всю работу делает Рим. ☺️ Кормит пиццей, поит водой питьевой на улицах и итальянским кофейком. Подрумянивает щёчки в полдень. Заводит улицами в прекрасные районы. Тропами ведет на вершины всех холмов. Показывает внезапные широчайшие виды и места для отдыха. Открывает the keyhole of Rome. Знакомит с монахиней, поклонницей творчества Пушкина, Достоевского и Петербургского метрополитена. Chao! Bonjorno и perfecto! Arrividerchi 👌🏽 Раздаётся с каждого угла. Как же это прекрасно ааааа. Мы ещё не уехали, но я уже хочу ещё 🤤 О, мы вернёмся ещё в Италию. Си, сеньор! Только теперь в деревню и летом. Чтоб как в 'call me by your name', только без такой истории взаимодействия, но с велосипедами и прогулками в шляпах. 💛
