✨Soooo good before a heavy leg day!!!✨ . ✨Chronically engaged muscles tend to shorten, which creates tightness and reduces range of motion. In “half pigeon” you stretch the glute and hip of the forward leg, and you will stretch the psoas and hip of lengthened leg... . ✨I say to do this before you workout because you want the muscles cold... so, while in this pose. (For at least 3 minutes) your going beyond the muscle, stretching the connective tissue... increasing mobility... . ✨Here’s how: •Bring your right knee to your right wrist. (In time you can work your foot to the left wrist making your shin parallel to the mat or wall in front of you. This will deepen the stretch) •lengthen the left leg ( keeping it active by tucking the toes.. as seen in this picture... or you can allow the top of your foot to rest on the floor ( my preferred way... so no muscle energy is used and you can go deeper into the stretch) •Inhale and press the ground away, lifting the torso, lengthening the spine. •Exhale to fold over your right leg •Bring a block, bolster, or blanket to your forehead or under your forearms as support while you work through the tightness... •Breathe here and stay for at least 2-3 minutes the first few times you do this.. then bring it to 5 minutes each side •Switch sides . It gets easier!!! I promise!!! ☺️🙏🏻🧘‍♀️ . 🏋🏽‍♂️🧘🏽‍♂️ @_ruben_borges 📸 @i_merc_out . ~Dream big, Love hard, &Flow . #lovetoloveyoga #yoga #yogapose #legday #flow #yogaeverydamnday #yogaforathletes #yogaeverywhere #igyoga #yogainspiration #positivevibes #legs #stretch #happiness #love #peace #meditation #mantra #healthy #mind #body #soul #fit #yogafit #fitness #fitbody #focus #ttsstrong #yogatutorial #flow #yogaforbeginners

✨Chaturanga ✨ . Chaturanga strengthens and tones the wrists, arms, abs, and lower back. It also prepares the body for more challenging arm balances. Similar to a traditional push-up, it also strengthens the muscles surrounding the spine, which helps to improve posture. . ✨I encourage you to lower into your Chaturanga slowly , increasing strength. & welcome blocks into your practice to help get you into proper alignment. There are a few variations above to help get you started ... 👉🏻 you can also place 2 blocks at their highest setting right under the shoulder heads assuring that your shoulders stay in line with the elbows and don’t dip forward. . ✨Everything is working here! ~ heels are over toes, pull the knee caps up to engage the quads, firm the belly pulling the belly button in and up toward the spine, shoulders and elbows are aligned, reach the crown of the head forward... ✨ . Most importantly, have fun!!! . ~Dream big, Love hard, &Flow . #lovetoloveyoga #yoga #yogapose #drishti #flow #yogaeverydamnday #beachyoga #yogaeverywhere #igyoga #yogainspiration #positivevibes #beach #ocean #happiness #love #peace #meditation #mantra #healthy #mind #body #soul #fit #yogafit #fitness #light #focus #manifest #yogatutorial #flow #yogaforbeginners

✨Offer your heart✨ . ✨Upward-Facing Dog /Urdhva Mukha Svanasana✨ . This is one of those poses that I see people go through super quick. No breath, no awareness, or connection of mind/body... I beg students to move slower, notice each movement... it’s not only going to protect you from injury but will create a beautiful practice...I know that your vinyasa can get tiring, & your arms begin to fatigue... and so if that happens I encourage you to take a child’s pose... rest, reset, then go again... . Here are a few tips to get you on your way... . ✨From Chaturanga 👉🏻 -Keep the pelvis lifted -Roll over your toes or lift one foot at a time allowing the tops of the feet to face down -Inhale, shift your body forward allowing the chest to come forward, straightening the arms, keeping thighs and knees off the ground. - Press the hands down to lift up., press the tops of the feet to also keep your legs lifted up. -Externally rotate the upper arm bones, broadening across the collar bone -Reach the crown of the head up to keep a nice long neck as the shoulders come together and down away from the ears. . ~Dream big, Love hard, &Flow . #lovetoloveyoga #yoga #yogapose #drishti #flow #yogaeverydamnday #beachyoga #yogaeverywhere #igyoga #yogainspiration #positivevibes #beach #ocean #happiness #love #peace #meditation #mantra #healthy #mind #body #soul #fit #yogafit #fitness #light #focus #manifest #yogatutorial #flow #yogaforbeginners

✨Lately I’ve been feeling a major shift in my life... I’m changing so much that sometimes it’s a little scary, but thrilling at the same time.. ✨ . ✨There’s a Rumi quote that says “Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead,let life live through you.”✨ . ✨And so I realize that that all the experiences the changes the bullshit, heartache, tears, even the happiness, is just life within me that is really happening...Uncontrollably... ✨ . ✨I realize now that all that has happened was just there to lead me to a higher purpose...A simple purpose to be just be alive, to grow, create, inspire and to share... ✨ . ✨And so it is... there’s no need to control it or worry about it...there’s no end goal... it just is... ✨ . ✨Let life live through you.

✨You Choose✨ . ✨Only you can create the life you love....And only you can get in your own way preventing that amazing life from becoming reality✨ . ✨Just got back from Cali ( my fave place everrrrr!!! ) Between the best sunsets,friends, mentors, food, experiences...it’s so hard to put into words the feeling I have when I’m there... it’s as if my soul remembers me living there in another life ... & I know I will live there again in this life... I know because I dream it, I Manifest it, I work hard towards it, I visualize it, and I do what it takes to keep going back until the day I buy a one way ticket... . Goal setting and visualization are so important when manifesting the life you love. Sure, times get tough and life gets in the way, but as long as your attention is aligned with your goals, your good! Say no thanks to the negative shit that pops up, the negative people who will suck your energy out of you, and start to surrounding yourself with everything and everyone who is a positive force for ya.. keep your goals written somewhere you can look at easily whenever you need to be reminded of it... and have a plan of attack mapped out... meditate... close your eyes.. sit... be still...allow your thoughts to come in and out and begin to listen ... then go after it!!! Relentlessly!!! . ✨Dream big.

✨Just spent 11 days in Sunny California & loving life!!!✨ . ✨There was a time not too long ago where I had no idea how to connect breath, mind, & body... I felt overwhelmed with life and the shit that it had handed me ... my mind would be a crazy mess of anxiety creating thoughts only making it harder to break out of this fucked up depression I had fallen into... deep in my heart I knew things would just get worse if I didn’t believe in happiness... in freedom from my own worries...I knew my relationship with myself, my family and anyone around me would just suck more and more if I didn’t do something about it immediately...✨so I chose yoga✨ and began exploring myself... my thoughts in time of quietness. My actions in times of crazy thoughts/my actions in times of calm thoughts, I began moving slower... noticing my breath as it connected to each move I made...✨ Life still happens, things get crazy, thoughts come up, struggles and challenges get put in front of me every day... none of that changed... but I did!... I changed how I react to all of it and it feels sooooo good!!! . ✨And so I encourage you... Start over, be brave brave enough to find the life you want and courageous enough to chase it. Then start over and love yourself the way you were always meant to be loved.✨💖 . .

✨Warrior of Love ✨ . ✨Love yourself first. Love yourself so much that it pours out of you & anyone who gets to meet you feels that emotion... so easily... because it’s so raw... & real! ✨ . 📿Day 7 of #fall4transformation ... “What pose transforms your love?”...Today’s theme really means so much to me as my entire practice revolves around transforming self love... 💖 ✨There was a time were I felt so lost, unworthy of love, lonely, dark.. you name it... And then I began to practice yoga... it was almost forced in the beginning.. I new I had to get myself up and out of the house and continue to live...being active in fitness for pretty much all my life, I decided to do something to stay active yet take it down a notch, slow down... I needed to pay attention to me ... And so yoga was it. It was a the only time where I could get on my mat and nothing else mattered but me.And whenever there was a pose where I could work on “opening the heart”... you better believe I was in it to it’s fullest expression...I began to open up, to feel so much respect and love for myself exactly as I was... so much so that I began to open up to everyone around me... my world was filled with new light... new opportunities.. new adventures...new relationships ... and I wasn’t afraid anymore... as only the good things came my way... not that there aren’t challenging times and people but they just so easily find their way out on their own... you get me ..?? And so I became a warrior of love... this has been my most fulfilling transformation yet... ✨🙏🏻🧘‍♀️💖 . 💫📿 The inspiring hosts: 🦋 @andreamegale.yoga @simplemuffin @temyoga @toonieyoga 🦋 💫 The generous sponsors @liquidoactive @panaprium @ocean.and.tides @rocactive @officialvaclothing@insideoutsideoutsidein@sashka_co @infinitystrap . . . 📷 @idohairthings @cm13 @sabrinafleischman @melig925 @hansolo288 . #yoga #yogachallenge #lovetoloveyoga #transformation #fall #yogainspiration #positivevibes #healthylifestyle #fitness #fitfam #yogapractice #asana #journey #yogafam #igyoga #inspiration #motivation #yogagirl #yogabody #yogaeverywhere #yogapose #yogafit #healing #mind #body #soul # #love #selflove #spirit

✨Perception ✨ . 📿Day 3 #fall4transformation “your perception.."..Whatever it is, upside down or right side up...its perfect... ✨ “Patanjali outlines five functions or activities of the mind: pramana (correct assessment), viparyaya (incorrect assessment), vikalpa (imagination), nidra (deep sleep) and smrtayah (memory). This means that at any point of any day you are either interpreting your experience (correctly or incorrectly), imagining things that do not exist, sleeping without dreams, or reminiscing about something that happened in the past. So basically in your waking state, you are evaluating something, imagining something or remembering something. All of this happens through the lens of your own past experiences, beliefs, and character so it is highly subjective. “Your perceptions are so vivid and immediate that they compel you to believe that you experience the world as it is, when you actually experience a world of your own construction.” The same point is communicated by a widely known expression: “We don’t see things as they are, but as we are...”✨ . 💫📿 The inspiring hosts: 🦋 @andreamegale.yoga @simplemuffin @temyoga @toonieyoga 🦋 💫 The generous sponsors @liquidoactive @panaprium @ocean.and.tides @rocactive @officialvaclothing@insideoutsideoutsidein@sashka_co @infinitystrap . @cm13 @sabrinafleischman @melig925 @hansolo288 @idohairthings #yoga #yogachallenge #lovetoloveyoga #transformation #fall #yogainspiration #positivevibes #healthylifestyle #happiness #yogapractice #asana #journey #yogafam #igyoga #inspiration #motivation #yogagirl #yogabody #yogaeverywhere #yogapose #yogafit #healing #mind #body #soul #yogapose #yogalife #perception #sutra
