I took this photo a year ago. Know what this means? My back bends have not improved. I’ve only maintained my skill. • This year has been crazy, emotional, hard, and some days it was unbearable. I quit two jobs (one that I still absolutely love and I live with regret for leaving it), I went back to school (with a husband in law school AND a toddler just being a toddler 😂), I’ve lost a few friendships and I’ve questioned my stances in life. BUT I MAINTAINED MY PRACTICE. I strengthened the relationships that mattered. I figured out who I am, who I want to be and what I need to do to get there. • So, it’s ok to maintain your practice sometimes. Yoga is meant to teach you more about your inner self. It doesn’t matter that my heels aren’t any closer to my my elbows. It doesn’t matter that I’m stuck in headstands and can barely hold a handstand. What matters is I maintained my practice and I’ve learned more mentally about myself. • So, my fellow yogis. If you are still reading, know that your mental growth is more important than your physical growth. Keep moving. You’re doing great 💜 • Mental health is so important. Know that I am always here for you. Regardless of the time. Regardless if we barely speak. Regardless if we barely know each other. I’m here. • • • • • • • • #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #yoga #yogi #yogisofinstagram #yogaandmentalhealth #backbends #wheelposevariation

Backbends are definitely one of my favorite asana to play with. They give me this simple fantastic feeling! Sometimes, I experience a rush of fluids. Like sinuses draining but in other reservoirs within my body. Others, it’s simply the depth of the bend that seems to release sunshine 🌞 straight out of my heart ♥️ . #FavoriteOrLeastFavorite . .

Open your heart and enjoy a better life💖💖💖 The heart chakra is deeply connected to our ability to feel and give love. If there’s an imbalance or blockage, perhaps caused by difficult experiences and trauma, we can become limited in our power to feel love and compassion. Instead we nurture feelings of resentment and bitterness. This can also manifest itself physically, perhaps leading to a variety of chest problems, limitations of the immune system and blood diseases. Yoga poses that open up the heart, help to balance and unlock the energy flow through the heart chakra, thus releasing tension and negative emotions. These postures can help bring you to be at peace with yourself as well as increase self confidence and self love. I’m referring to backbends, but sometimes it’s better to think of them as chest or heart openers. There are quite a few of them...so if forearm wheel ☝🏻 isn’t for you (it’s just that I’m wheel obsessed) there’s plenty of others. It’s not important which one you do, just to make sure you include at least one, regularly in your practice. Happy Friday tout-le-monde🌍
