✨scared? Good. We don’t grow when we stay inside our comfort zone.✨ I’ve read this somewhere on Pinterest while procrastinating instead of studying (🇪🇸exam tomorrow🙊) and it made me think of how far I’ve reached and how scary was that first step out of my comfort zone. As well I reminded myself how grateful I am for the experience, for having the opportunity to learn a new language, work what I love and have my human next to me🥰 And all started with being vulnerable and opening up to an idea that sounded silly and unbelievable 😉 Day 3 of #TimeToFlipTheGrip with Upward facing dog, a pose I practice/demonstrate at least 20 times a day 😽it helps in opening your shoulders only if you really focus on rolling the shoulders back, pressing the floor away, lengthening the neck and... of course active core 🔥 Have a beautiful evening friends, I’m going back to studying ❤️ .

“What happens when people open their hearts? ‘…’They get better.’”~ Haruki Murakami Going through life with open heart is a challenge but once we are vulnerable and we show how we really feel, life gets better. I am so obsessed with the whole concept of “open heart” that sometimes I over mention it on classes and now my students laugh whenever I say- “open your hears”😍😽🙈 Love you guys ❤️ Fish pose is great asana if you are working on your upper back and the idea of getting used to energetically lengthen the thoracic spine, bend more and feel all the benefits of a good and yummy backbend🥰 Day 2 of #TimeToFlipTheGrip ❤️. .

~Sometimes in the waves of change we find our true direction~ Anahata asana or Puppy pose was the game changer in my backbending practice. I remember the first time I did it, on one of my first Vinyasa yoga classes in Bali I thought- oh my 🙈such a painful, yet yummy pose... I promised myself that one day I will be able to bring the chest on the floor💪😉and it did happen, after a year of patience and loooong holds🙃 It’s definitely one of those poses that you need to be able to hold it comfortably for at least 10 breaths before attempting for deeper backbends or flipping the grip. We choose this pose for day 1 of #TimeToFlipTheGrip because is an asana that will guide and show you how deep you can bend and how much space you can create in your upper back. You can practice it on the floor or as well on the wall (I’ll publish it on my stories 😘) Cant wait to see your variations friends!❤️ . Hosts:  @shylasvsyoga @blessedyoga @temyoga @sarahuactive .

~Everything you ever want its on the other side of fear~ This has been my Inversion mantra since the very first beginnings of being upside down and discovering all the fears I never knew that existed. My Sirsasana journey its been long and helped me to learn a lot about myself. At first I was super scared to even try it on my own, than I became bff with the Wall🙊and than I finally got the courage to try in the middle of the room and learn how to fall. This was my longest period of fighting my imaginary fears in Sirsasana, lots of shaky attempts, few moments of balance with all the fast scary breathing... and than just when I stopped carrying about it, my first Sirsasana hold with steady and my breath was long and equal. I am grateful for the years of my Sirsasana journey because it help me to evolve in my practice, to learn to enjoy the journey rather than carrying about the destination and to know that the steady breath is the key for everything #onandoffthemat Last day of #MayIPracticeAshtanga Hosts: @esteryoga @temyoga @kaitlynpatrizia . _ 🥰 Incredible SPONSORS who are joining us: @liquidoactive . . @omstarsofficial 👉 (Use ESTERYOGA code for a 30-day free trial) . . @elephantyogarugs . . @lilaintheskyjewelry . . _ 🧘 Pose list: . _ 1.

My Urdhva Dhanurasana practice for #MayIPracticeAshtanga Wheel pose comes at the of the seated sequence just before the inversions and it feels so yummy and good after all the forward folds. Traditionally its done 3 times (5 breaths each) lowering down only to the top of the head im between while trying to bring the hands towards the feet. After this traditionally you are supposed to do Drop backs which I cant practice on my own yet (But some days when hubby💑 is home I use him to support me 😉🤗❤️). Cant wait to see your Wheel practice friends ❤️ and dont forget parallel feet and knees are the key 😉😘 Hosts: @esteryoga @temyoga @kaitlynpatrizia . _ 🥰 Incredible SPONSORS who are joining us: @liquidoactive . . @omstarsofficial 👉 (Use ESTERYOGA code for a 30-day free trial) . . @elephantyogarugs . . @lilaintheskyjewelry . . _ 🧘 Pose list: . _ 1.

Happy Saturday with yesterday’s Day 5 of #MayIPracticeAshtanga Titthibhasana is a transitional pose in the Primary series of Ashtanga and comes just after Bhujapidasana as a “way out” of the pretzely “kissing the floor” arm balance. I needed a serious work and repetition of all the Bhujapindasana sequence to gain the strength, control and muscle memory for this pose and here is where I really experienced #practiceandalliscoming in my Ashtanga journey 😍 Have a beautiful start of the weekend friends 😘❤️ _ Hosts: @esteryoga @temyoga @kaitlynpatrizia . _ 🥰 Incredible SPONSORS who are joining us: @liquidoactive . . @omstarsofficial 👉 (Use ESTERYOGA code for a 30-day free trial) . . @elephantyogarugs . . @lilaintheskyjewelry . . _ 🧘 Pose list: . _ 1.

#IGYogaStudio Rock you Wheel edition week 3 is about stretching the front part of the body, carefully backbending and getting ready to the feeling of Bridge pose. Many yoga practitioners will have to stick to Bridge pose and its variations (like on the photo ⬆️) for longer periods or maybe forever 😍because of lower back issues, shoulder problems or just very stiff back that needs its time to open up for a deeper backbends. Remember Wheel is not a pose you want to rush yourself into 😘 For the natural back benders this pose is a piece of cake but for many yoga practitioners this already feels super strong and energetically powerful. Even though I am a natural backbender (to a certain point 😉) I enjoy regular Bridge and is my go to pose to warm up for deeper backbends. 🛑Whenever practicing always remember: knees parallel, feet parallel and abs active 😘 Don’t forget to check Andrea and Ester for inspiration, tips and tricks. ❤️ 🧘‍♀ Hosts . @andreamegale.yoga . @esteryoga . @temyoga . . 🎁 Sponsors . @marthaacunasportwear . @sloganfit . @priyanada_inspirations . @yogaevo . #bridgepose #backbends #backbending #yogawheelpose #wheelposeprogress #backbends #heartopener #heartopeners #bridgeposevariation #urdhvadhanurasana

Honestly this pose doesn’t attract me much and I have never pushed myself too much into it. I’ve heard all the stories of people that dislocated their hips 😶while attempting this on their own without a teacher, and all that took my curiosity away. Since where I live now I dont have a constant Ashtanga teacher I don’t practice this pose but I do work on different drills and practices to prepare and open my hips and maybe 🙊 one day possibly practice Eka Pada Sirsasana. Until that day, I am happy enjoying my journey one smile at a time ☺️ These are inspired from Intermediate series workshop I attended last week led by @titoroberotto _ Hosts: @esteryoga @temyoga @kaitlynpatrizia . _ 🥰 Incredible SPONSORS who are joining us: @liquidoactive . . @omstarsofficial 👉 (Use ESTERYOGA code for a 30-day free trial) . . @elephantyogarugs . . @lilaintheskyjewelry . . _ 🧘 Pose list: . _ 1.

~Never be afraid to try something new because life gets boring when you stay within the limits you already know~ I’ve read this somewhere on Pinterest and it made me rethink my practice and how sometimes I am afraid to try something new, convincing myself that I am not ready, strong or flexible enough. I know that Ashtanga is a practice that you can pass on the next asana after you master the previous but what if your physical body never allows you to master it?! We are all unique and different and some of us will never be able to backbend into Kapotasana (which comes before this asana) and thats fine. The importance is the awareness and your connection with your body, the luck of having a teacher to teach you the best modification for your body and the feeling of being ready and excited for what comes next in the series. 💕Baradvajasana for #MayIPracticeAshtanga day 3💕 _ Hosts: @esteryoga @temyoga @kaitlynpatrizia . _ 🥰 Incredible SPONSORS who are joining us: @liquidoactive . . @omstarsofficial 👉 (Use ESTERYOGA code for a 30-day free trial) . . @elephantyogarugs . . @lilaintheskyjewelry . . _ 🧘 Pose list: . _ 1.

💕Urdhva Mukha Pascimottanasana for #MayIPracticeAshtanga day 2💕 _ Coming to the end of the Primary series this is one of the poses that I can happily say I am “resting in” ☺️ To enter you need to bring the legs over the head and with the exhale and bit of momentum enter the pose.(➡️slide for a video of my practice) It takes a lot of unsuccessful tries and building muscle memory to be able to do it and even when you get there on some days the entrance doesn’t happen that smooth and effortlessly. But that’s why Ashtanga is a daily practice, teaching us that if not today to give it a playful try tomorrow🤗😘 Have a beautiful Tuesday friends and dont forget to check my beautiful co hosts for inspo and more tips😘 Hosts: @esteryoga @temyoga @kaitlynpatrizia . _ 🥰 Incredible SPONSORS who are joining us: @liquidoactive . . @omstarsofficial 👉 (Use ESTERYOGA code for a 30-day free trial) . . @elephantyogarugs . . @lilaintheskyjewelry . . _ 🧘 Pose list: . _ 1.

💕All the Marichyasanas for #MayIPracticeAshtanga day 1💕 _ Welcome to our Ashtanga challenge where we will explore some of the asanas from Primary and Intermediate series. Marichyasana A, B, C and D is a point where everyone was/is when they started their Ashtanga journey. Traditionally you should not continue with the series until you can comfortably be at all 4 Marichyasanas, and ohhh they are a real journey to self exploration. I was stuck with Marichy D for half a year, trying to pretzel my way into the pose. Now, on some days the bind comes easier or not 😊and thats fine. The practice should be playful and playing through the asanas is the best way for keeping a light and joyful mind.

Anahata Asana or Puppy pose is one of my go-to poses to stretch the front body, open the upper back and shoulders and prepare myself for deeper backbends like Wheel. After I started with Aerial silks classes (which burn your shoulders) these are my favorite stretches to avoid stiffness. Be careful to not get addicted of all of them because they all feel so yummy😉😍 🤗 Don’t forget to check Andrea and Ester for inspiration, tips and tricks. ❤️ Music 🎶 Shva- Earth Born 🧘‍♀ Hosts . @andreamegale.yoga . @esteryoga . @temyoga . . 🎁 Sponsors . @marthaacunasportwear . @sloganfit . @priyanada_inspirations . @yogaevo . #puppypose #puppyposevariation #extendedpuppypose #yogawheelpose #wheelposeprogress #backbends #heartopener #heartopeners

As many of you know, last October I found out I have herniated disc in my neck which put some of my favorite asanas and transitions on hold. I still have pain at least twice a week😐but I learned how to accept and live with it. Today I felt semi good and did a very mindful inversions practice. Without long holds, without experimenting new stuff and just enjoying the time my body allows me to be upside down 🙃✨ Wearing my new second skin outfit from @vayumudra Use my code”TEMYOGA15” and get 15% off your purchase😘 Music by @bigwildmusic #pinchapractice #headstandprogress #forearmstand #inversionpractice #vayumudratribe #igyogis
