Sending love to Paris #NotreDame 🙏🏼 Do you remember this pic from six years ago? Honza and I did a crazy trip through Europe visiting as many iconic locations as we could in 12 days. We managed to hit up 11 famous cities in 7 countries and find strangers to photograph us striking acro poses in front of each place we visited. Seems like a lifetime ago, before there was even a video feature on ig! We have countless stories from this trip and will cherish those memories forever. Although it’s a startling moment in history, what we know to be true is that we always rise out of the ashes of any hardship and challenge as one people and rebuild, reconnect and come out stronger. That is why we named our daughter Phoenix, an eternal mystical bird that rises out of the ashes. Our hearts are with you, Paris. Reste forte, reste courageux, rester ensemble. 💙♥️ 🇫🇷 💙♥️
My new class Restoration Station just launched on @alo.moves. Link in bio👆🏼 Come chill out with me in a yummy slow sizzle. The aim of this class is to calm and soothe your nervous system with a sequence that opens up the entire back body. Carving out an hour just for yourself might seem lush, but the truth is you deserve it and you need it, we all do! So make a cup of tea, grab your blocks, straps, bolsters and blankets, and get cozy with me on the mat.😉C. link: alomov.es/restoration-station . ✨ Also - TODAY @aloyoga has launched their summer collection with some really beautiful and bright colors. Head over to their site to check it all out!
What’s missing in yoga? #pulling The one thing that is lacking in the physical practice of yoga is hanging and pulling. With so much attention on pressing - high to low plank, updog to downdog, side plank to wild thing, arm balances, handstands etc - it’s no wonder there is no shortage of wrist and shoulder injuries in yoga. Indoor rock climbing is a fun way to start balancing out your practice. Even just a 1min dead hang from an overhead bar once a day will do wonders for your wrists and shoulders. I started traveling with gymnastic rings a couple of years ago and it has been a total game changer especially for my handstand practice. Thank you @diceyoga for putting me onto it. So what are the benefits? Hanging decompresses your spine, helps correct posture, improves shoulder stability, range of motion and flexibility, strengthens your core, improves grip and forearm strength, and the list goes on. The thing is, your lat muscles get tight just by sitting at work with arms at your sides all day, which restricts your shoulder and upper back mobility whenever your arms go above your head, sabotaging your strength and putting your back in a potentially dangerous position. What I’m saying is LET’S HANG OUT!😉H. . lens @petersedlacik
If you’re working on building functional strength and stability for a float and press handstand, check out my new class on @alo.moves titled Thunderbolt Handstand. It’s basically a quick drill flow aimed at giving you a better understanding of postural architecture through physical practice as well as the practice of visualisation.

As yoga teachers we talk a lot about opening the heart space. It’s kinda comical that backbends have become known as heart-openers. One could easily be mistaken when rocking up to their first yoga class expecting a cardiologist standing at the teacher’s mat!😆 So what do we mean by heart opening besides the obvious physical benefits? From time to time, we all face difficult moments that make us want to shelter our hearts. When people we love hurt us, it is a natural reaction to want to shield ourselves, and put protection around our hearts, to keep pain from entering. A shut down heart makes it impossible to allow happiness, freedom, and good loving people in. However, when you find the courage to let yourself be vulnerable and open up your heart both mentally and emotionally, you create space for growth, forgiveness, and change. Most of all, you open the doorway to let love in... again.❤️C. . lens @petersedlacik fave new top by @aloyoga

BOOM!👊🏼 #newrecord @sofiephoenix hangs every day and it’s so cool to see her getting stronger. It melts my heart every time she lifts her arms up and says “Dada hang please!” Can’t tell you how good it feels to lead by example and witness your kid picking up your healthy habits. It also makes you look at your bad habits and actually be motivated enough to do something about them. What you say, what you eat, what you do, there is no hiding, they see it all and repeat after you. Kids are the best teachers... if you let them teach you. H.
