🌸Tip for pressing to handstand🌼 . 💕 In this video I use my head against the wall to help me press up. Head against the wall does 3 main things: 1. Allows you to practice shifting weight over hips without fear of falling 2. Gives a sense of stability when going up 3. Makes pressing a little easier because some weight the shoulders would take is transferred to head which is supported by wall. 🍒 . 🐒 Leave comments! Let us know what you think or suggest any poses you want tips!!! Thanks for viewing❤ .

🍊A great little drill to help pressing to handstand🎈 . 🤸‍♀️Even if not working to press to handstand, this drill will help strengthen shoulders, wrists, core, and legs. 🤹‍♂️ . 🍒 Key points 1. Walk hands back as far as possible. You may even feel like you will face plant! 2. As you progress, you will be able to walk your hands below your hips and your feet will feel weightless. 🌷

Day 3 is Side Crow or 8 Angle! These are both two of my favorite arm balances. Side Crow was one of the first arm balances I felt fairly stable in, and once I got side crow down other arm balances and twisting postures became more accessible!

Can’t wait to see everyone’s side crows and 8Angles! 💕 🤸🏼‍♀️Balancing Hosts:🧗🏼‍♀️ @mrs_khaleesi_gaither @namaste_in_dc @kaddarina.motus @lauralouiseyoga @gymnasttoyogini 🤸🏻‍♂️Gravity-Defying Sponsors:🧗🏻‍♂️ @onzie @gocleveryoga @songsofeden Poses by Day (we will be posting multiple variations for you to choose from!) 1.

A human being is a part of the whole called by us "Universe"...a part limited in time and space. He experiences his thoughts and feelings as separate from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his own consciousness . This delusion is a prison for us restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature and its beauty. ~Albert Einstein

#Halasana :: . . Healing is not linear. . . When you’ve had a long term injury, Mr. Iyengar wrote to treat that part as if it were a child. Tenderly when it is unwell, with compassion and understanding. I remind my students that we do not do the pose at the expense of any of our sad parts. All must go together, if not joyfully, maybe curiously and carefully, we must be willing to experiment. My bones may never go back to their original places, but I am grateful for all the ways I’ve learned to lessen their pinching and release their tension. This halasana (and sarvangasana with hips on the bolster) helped release my tight trapezius so well, I came up with a completely different neck! The feeling of N O T H I N G. Just spaciousness, compression released. Thanks @yogabysheryl for the shoulder tucks and @devondederich for the setup 💛 . . #tryiyengar #ploughpose #chairyoga #yogachair #propsforprops #propyourpose #iyengaryoga #yoga #yogainspiration #yogainversions #yogi #yogisofinstagram #yogaposes #yogaforlife #yogapractice #yogaforneckandshoulders #yogawithprops

True. It’s the first day of 2019, but I was thrilled by this!! (As you can hear ☺️). So I’ve opened my photo library to look for a video that will show you the long handstand journey I had... I’m seeing the 2017 video- back then I didn’t dream about a full scorpion handstand, I simply practiced how to fall from a handstand without calling an ambulance 😂. Happy new year to all my IG friends, May it be a wonderful year, filled with health, love, happiness and yoga🙏🏻🧘🏻‍♀️.

Inversion therapy, when done safely and correctly, may help: 🤸‍♀️Relieve pressure on joints and bones; . 🤸‍♀️Minimize compression; . 🤸‍♀️Align the spine; . 🤸‍♀️Relief for lower back pain . Relieving back pain Our body is affected by the downward pull of gravity through every day things like walking and moving. These may contribute to spinal compression, pinched nerves and back pain over time. Hanging upside down may help alleviate back pain associated with compression by temporarily stretching the muscles and ligaments around the spine. 👍 Maintaining posture Job stress and strain, as well as activities like sitting at a desk or performing repetitive tasks, can all have a negative effect on your spine. These activities may also lead to a misalignment of the hips and contribute to poor posture. Inversion therapy gives your spine and the opportunity to stretch, realign and improve your posture. 🙌 Relaxing muscles Inversion therapy is an effective way of relaxing and stretching out your muscles. Hanging upside down allows gravity to relieve pressure on the lower part of your body. This exercise may also trigger a series of “cracking” sounds across your body, which also alleviates built-up pressure. 💯 Clearing the lymph system Because the lymph system only flows in one direction, waste may begin to collect and build up over time. Spending a few minutes upside down could help your body to adjust lymphatic flow and remove that waste naturally. 🍃 Improving blood circulation You can give your heart a helping hand while you hang upside down. Being inverted helps move your blood to the upper part of your body more easily. .... blog.providence.org

After a rough few days body wise I attempted some yoga inversions and none of my limbs went where they should. My arms and legs wouldn't align and my back cracked with every breath. But in order to embrace recovery you need to also embrace days like today. #Endometriosis #ankylosingspondylitis #adenomyosis #pots #dysautonomia #endowarrior #recovery #edrecovery #autoimmunedisease #yogi #wheelpose #positivevibes #healthyliving #yogainversions #bodypositive

What does holding space for yourself look like? What does it feel like?

P O S T U R E 🧘🏼‍♀️ How long have you spent today with your spine flexed, your shoulders rounded and your head hanging forwards? None? ... now lets re-phrase that question... How long have you spent looking down at your phone today, or sitting at your desk hanging over your laptop, or in the car, driving, reaching forwards to the steering wheel? 🚗 All of these things that we do day in, day out, have a huge impact on our posture and on the health of our spines! I invite you, right now, to put down your phone and to have a little wiggle before you head to bed! Just a few heart & front body openers each day can have a massive, positive effect on your body & health! 🏖 Try these right now: • Cat / Cow • Downward Facing Dog • Plank • Sphinx / Cobra / Upward Facing Dog • Bridge • Camel • Yoga Mudra (hands clasped) 📷 TB to summer days at the beach!

You were in my life but I never really known you, But little do you know the pain you put me through. I've grown up and realized That your life is nothing but one thousand lies.

In light of the new year, I took a much-needed Instagram break the last few weeks. Ever notice how just slightly altering routines can provide new insights to what we need to be doing better? I accept the necessity of social media for a small business owner, but also acknowledge without its incessant chatter, I am better able to hear my own voice. 🎤 🎤 And what that voice is telling me, loud and clear, is that I need to make my own self-care a greater priority this year. I’ve gotten used to putting myself last on the list, rescheduling doctors’ appointments, shrifting my fitness routine, eating my meals like a drill sergeant was standing over me, instead of stopping to savor my food. 🥘 🥘 This is all a happy result of the fact that I’m busy with wonderful family and friends and a budding business, and the myriad tasks therein. But if I make time for them, I need to make time for me too. It isn’t gonna happen overnight, but I’m setting an intention right now to move myself higher up the list this year. 🙏🙏 What about you? Do you relate to this? What do you do to keep yourself high up on the priority list? 💕💕 #resolutions #newyearsresolution #selfgrowth #selfcare #prioritizeyourself #mamacare #selflove #yogalife #wellnessjourney #beingmybestself #personalgrowth #practicewhatyoupreach #yogateacher #yogainversions
