We are daa Golden Hour... I miss you Stooopiiii 🌟☀️✨
Week 16 of my story 🌱 • Last week I left off with my first teacher Teddy. Like I stated before, his genuine kindness and peace did not feel genuine to me initially. It took weeks and weeks (and now knowing him for years) to realize that the vibe he had was real. It was his consistency that ended up attracting me. As far as the practice goes, he taught Bikram Yoga with no heat and no mirrors. At the time I just assumed this was “Yoga” in its entirety. I had some preconceived notions about Yoga (not based in experience or knowledge), but just assumed that it wasn’t for me. I had very real problems and I had no idea what stretching could possibly do to even touch them. My body was a wreck (still recovering from Gout) and my mind and emotional state were all over the place. I could not be still, I could not close my eyes without immense anxiety, and I could not focus my mind if my life depended on it. But I participated every week because I had to. I don’t know what shifted but after a month or so I started to try. During a time when it was very difficult to care about my health or my future or my family, I started to care about this set of postures. I wanted to do it right, I wanted to hold it without falling, I wanted to be able to keep a single point of focus. This new attitude ebbed and flowed as my Recovery ebbed and flowed. But we were taught how we do anything is how we do everything. How we showed up in Yoga was indicative of how we showed up in group; of how we would eventually show up in life. So I tried. A couple months in, Teddy brought t-shirts to give away as “prizes”. He ended up giving me the title of “Most Improved” and for some reason this meant the world to me. I hadn’t been acknowledged for something positive in years and it softened me. It felt so good to have honestly worked at something and to see change. This lesson paralleled me efforts in Recovery (as Yoga principles continue to do). Something may not be easy or comfortable, but the reward for walking through it was building self-esteem. Something I had lost long ago. • To be continued 🙏
Happy #TutorialTuesday from @yoga.tutorials ✌️❤️ ・・・ @miz.liz on the Anti-Banana Back Handstand 🍌 ・・・ ✨Handstand: Do This/Not That✨ . . . First time making one of these because I thought it'd be fun! 😆 Handstand is all about integrating the entire body to balance it like it's one part, instead of 100 different moving parts. So engagement in all the limbs is super important! . . Do This: Feet together Toes pointed Legs squeezed together Engaged glutes Belly hollow Ribs in Straight back Extended shoulders Pro tip: press ground away like it's gluten (Max wanted me to put this in here 😂😂) . . Not that: Feet apart Inactive toes Legs apart Relaxed glutes Loose belly Ribs splayed Banana back Sunken shoulders . . . More handstand tips and drills can be found in our current #MasteringHandstands challenge or take a peep at my link in profile for the course ❤️ . . .

I didn’t have a stable handstand practice until I steadily began practicing at home. I used online yoga videos to help fill in the gaps between studio classes and also to target things I was working towards. If you are looking to improve your practice in a convenient and economical way try @alo.moves. They are offering a 14 day free trial so go ahead and see if a portable practice will help you get a little more time on the mat. PC: @sfreneenyc at the gorgeous @alonewyork studio. #ad
The SCM, a rotator of the neck The Sternocleidomastoid is just that – a muscle that attaches to the sternum, clavical, and mastoid process. Because of these attachments, it may also theoretically help lift the ribcage and can be considered a respiratory muscle as well. Tightness here can hinder breathing and lead to dysfunctions in the C or T spine, as well as headaches. . SCM Release . ❌🛑If you have a history of heart disease such a pulmonary embolism or DVT it can be dangerous and dislodge a thrombus and cause a stroke so do not do this release!!🛑❌ . 1. turn your neck to one side to allow your SCM to pop out 2. Lightly grip it and turn your neck away then back towards it and laterally flex neck as well. Do this slowly and work up the muscle. Stay longer on tender areas. . SCM Stretch . - Proper alignment, sitting up tall and draw in the core. - Anchor the same side arm under your seat - Extend the neck to look up, side bend your neck to the opposite side, and rotate the neck to look up a bit more. - Tuck in the chin (this makes a big difference for me!) - Use your other hand to gently press on the head. - Breathe out to intensify the stretch - Hold for 30 seconds or more, repeat 2-3 times on each side. . If one is tighter than the other. Try spending a bit more time. . Try this out and tag 3 friends and share the wealth . Photo Courtesy: @anatomytrainsofficial .

Hoje 21 de junho comemora-se o dia Internacional da Yoga. Alguns benefícios: ▫️Diminui o estresse e ansiedade; ▫️Alivia dores corporais; ▫️Controla a pressão e os batimentos cardíacos; ▫️Melhora o sono; ▫️Drena a linfa e aumenta a imunidade; ▫️Mantém você focado; ▫️Relaxa, traz equilíbrio; dentre outros. A Yoga fornece técnicas para unir o corpo, a mente e a respiração e nos conectar ao nosso ser – o aspecto espiritual das nossas vidas. ▪️ Suba no seu tapete de yoga, sua plataforma de lançamento para uma jornada de descobrimento interno; ▪️Sente-se – de forma firme e confortável com as posturas de yoga; ▪️Respire suavemente para a partida – inspire, expire e acalme sua mente; ▪️E implesmente entre em meditação. Pergunte a si mesmo: Coisas triviais tiram você facilmente do equilíbrio? Você está confuso? A sua mente está em conflito? A mente oscila frenquentemente entre o passado e o futuro, causando preocupações e expectativa. Desejos, medos, ânsias e aversões prendem a mente. Para abandonar o conflito, é essencial trazê-la para o momento presente. Yoga e meditação mantêm a harmonia. Além disso, o equilíbrio, a flexibilidade e o estado de alerta que você alcança no tapete de yoga refletem-se também nas suas ações e atitudes fora do tapete.

A few facts about International Yoga Day. (Which is today by the way..Happy Yoga Day). 1. It has been celebrated annually on June 21 since 2015 2. It was declared as Yoga Day unanimously by the United Nations General Assembly 3. 21 June is the longest day in the Northern Hemisphere 4. It was first proposed by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014 This was his speech to the assembly back then... Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day. — Narendra Modi, UN General Assembly Source Wikipedia. Job done - now let's work towards everyday yoga - are you with me?. ;)🙏 #everydayisayogaday #internationalyogaday #yoga #happyyogaday #yoga #yogisofinstagram #summersolstice #harmony #fulfillment #nature #lifestyle #conciousness #wellbeing
Today is International Day of Yoga. Yoga is peace. Yoga is awareness. Yoga is healing. Yoga is mindfulness. Yoga is non-attachment. Yoga is unity.

🙏🏻Namaste! Happy International Yoga Day ❤️ How did the International Day of Yoga get started?! It began where yoga began… in India. It was officially established by the current Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi during a 2014 UNGA speech. This initiative was the first by any country to be proposed and implemented by the United Nations within 90 days. It was adopted by the general assembly to provide a holistic approach for health and well-being. .

We live in such a strange and yet beautiful world, filled with an abundance of life— all sorts of lives intertwining with one another, all having individual experiences, and simultaneously living together in this life, on this planet we call Earth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I feel a change, a shift, a ripple is happening— more and more I hear, I see, I witness others ‘practicing’ life. Consciously making efforts to better the small worlds that they reside in and connect with. Choosing to better themselves with actions. Living peacefully as they share compassion and open mindedness. And most of all, loving themselves for who they are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Knowing that this ‘reality’ is a stepping stone, a learning tool to evolve. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know for me personally, the art and practice of a yogic lifestyle has been my connection to what truly is, and how it can be. Asana, the moving meditation, the physical practice of Yoga is just a small part of it. There is SO much more, and even though I am constantly learning about the deeper depths of this lifestyles practice, I too see it happening within others all around me. And THIS, makes my heart smile. So, the change we all may want to happen, I believe WILL happen— as long as we continue to practice within ourselves, allowing our love and light to spread to those around us (friend, foe, and/or stranger), the ripple will have no choice to but expand out, to grow bigger, and to touch the lives upon lives of many. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Spreading love and light to all of you— Happy International Yoga Day 🙏🏼✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 @the_guides_eye ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #internationalyogaday #yogalove #yogalife #yogapractice #yogainspiration #yogalifestyle #lifepractice #selflove #compassion #yoga #asana #live #love #life #peace

This day isn’t about who can touch their nose to their toes or who can hold a handstand the longest. This day is about coming together as one. Yoga helps us reveal our own inner-power, strength, and beauty. It helps us heal so that we can better help others to heal. Happy International Day of Yoga 🌿 ———————————————— #internationaldayofyoga #internationalyogaday #yogateacher #yoga #summersolstice #hotyoga #innerpower

Glowing from my inner buddha😁 I just wrapped up an amazingly charged, illuminated #qhht session! Just WOW...And as I forgot to make a selfie with this person, I had to use another image that would somehow honor and capture this rapture that I feel right now... I was "shown" the golden-orange colors of this day, so this Cambodian Buddha will do the Bonita nicely. So grateful for my path, my qhht work and the amazing people on this journey. Querido M, when u read this, gracias por tu confianza y tu entrega a este proceso magico. Thank YOU!! Exploding with golden orange light .....

📍Теперь я точно НЕ буду делать так. _ Знали бы вы, сколько я трачу времени, а главное внутренних сил на то, чтобы поддержать КАЖДОГО, кто напишет мне лично, дать совет прошенный или оказать простую человеческую поддержку. _ Вместо того, чтобы идти и написать пост/снять видео на запрашиваемые темы - я занимаюсь БЛАГОтворительностью. Мне не сложно и всегда мое сердце откликается на чью-то боль, НО. В большинстве случаев - это лишь потребительство в мою сторону, причем не только в соц.сетях, а и в реальной жизни. Я рядом- потому что МНЕ СЕЙЧАС ЭТО НУЖНО, при других раскладах ветром сдуло. Если дети, которые не умеют скрывать истинную причину обращения - говорят прямым текстом, то взрослые умело, они так думают, что умело рядом, когда нужно им. Я этот канал вот твердо прикрываю. Если некоторые думают, что я ничего не вижу, не чувствую и не могу провести параллели, то - 🙃🖕 __________ БЛАГОдарю остальных - за искреннюю поддержку. И за СВОИХ людей в моей жизни🙏❤ Пост наполненный любовью, к себе в первую очередь. Посчитала нужным именно публично поделиться. Как есть.
Happy International Yoga Day. .................................................................... "Don't move the way fear makes you move. Move the way love makes you move. Move the way joy makes you move." - Osho

My yoga view this morning, before the rain. It’s good to be home in KC, AND we’re doing so many things for the first time - house searching, engagement, wedding planning, new jobs. I’m learning to sit in that duality, and having my mat to return to again and again is a comfort and a safe place to challenge myself. Thank you, yoga. 🙏
It’s funny how my practice is sometimes more off the mat rather than on the mat. All the chaturangas and inversion practice is nothing compared to the chaos, drama and shock I get on a daily basis. But I guess that’s life. Sometimes my splits and pinchas happen and sometimes i reject your leaves. Sometimes I get so angry at Moji destroying my favourite soft toy but in the end found out it was actually Jody. I teach my students to let go of their deepest pain and hatred and ego and doubt and jealousy and everything bad in life but when I reflect on my own practice, I somewhat need my own advice. Where am I going with this? Idk again. As my feed start to get filled up with posts regarding International Yoga Day, all I can think of is how imperfect I am and yet super blessed that I still have my team and my students who look up to me, come to my class, seek for my advice, and sometimes understand me more than I understand myself. And for that... I am super duper blessed and thankful, that you have faith and believed in me and my classes, although sometimes I make you hold your splits for a miserable 5 minutes 😋. That said, I’d like to wish everyone nothing more than namaste. My soul honours your soul and forever thankful that everyone is a teacher to me in my journey. 🙏🏻
On this #InternationalDayofYoga I wanted to do a pose (asana) that has always given me a hard time. With time practice and working on my arm strength, I can finally keep this pose for more than half a second. It still needs a few adjustments, which I will continue to work on. In the meantime, this has been a check off my list. Crow pose (Bakāsana), you've been a good challenge and will continue to be.
