TIGHT SHOULDERS? 6 poses to release restri

Video by @actionjacquelyn ⠀ TIGHT SHOULDERS? 6 poses to release restrictions in your shoulders, chest and back. Find the tight blocks, breathe into them, and open your body. . Connect with your breath, body and look within. Your body wants to heal and renew itself - when you stretch you’re giving it the opportunity to do so. Soften into your breath and be still. All the answers are within you. . Here’s the flow: 1. Cat /Cow 2. Arm circles - kneeling or standing 3. Reverse prayer - modify hold elbows 4. Cactus arms - kneeling or standing 5. Bridge - palms pressing into ground, progress to clasped hands 6. Thoracic Spine Opener on mat, bolster or blocks. . Releasing tightness takes consistency, so to make lasting changes in your body, stretch with me everyday at home 👉🏼 🔹🔹🔹 Yoga Retreats / Yoga Jobs / Private Yoga Teachers - tap link in bio.☝ #yogapractice

Let’s talk handstand press... ⁣
it’s a beau

Video by @alexzandrapeters Let’s talk handstand press... ⁣ it’s a beautiful goal to have in your practice because it allows so many different playful transitions, but it’s not an easy task to achieve. It took me well over 7 months to be able to just achieve a press and float up with out a little hop. 2 years later I’m still not perfect at it (but I also don’t practice consistently anymore). ⁣ There’s a few key ingredients to achieving a press up. ⁣ Number 1: consistency. You’re training your body to build muscle memory for your press. That means it’s something that you need to keep working on daily. ⁣ Number 2: The deeper your forward fold and straddles are, the easier it will be for you to get your hips stacked over your shoulders (thus being easier for you to get your press). ⁣ Number 3: condition your upper body strength (no you don’t need to be able to do a pull up, to be able to do a press) but holding one minute planks, one minute handstand walk hold will most certainly help you in your press journey! ⁣ ⁣ I wish I could teach you everything in one little IG post, but it’s impossible lol. There are over 100 different techniques, workouts, poses, that you should/could be doing to help you advance in your handstand and presses! But here are a few that you can start doing :) 🔹🔹🔹 Yoga Retreats / Yoga Jobs / Private Yoga Teachers - tap link in bio.☝ #yogapractice

Do your wrists hurt from a long day of texting, typing, and/or writing?! 😩😱 Swipe left for a full video of simple exercises to help instantly relieve wrist pain, prevent injury, and strengthen/stretch your wrists!! 😍➡️➡️➡️ Everyday we are using our wrists for so many things. Over time, these motions can create weakness and stiffness in your wrists and fingers. As someone who works on their phone & computer a lot, it’s so important at the end of the day I’m stretching my wrists out!! 💕 Here are my top 5️⃣ wrist stretches: 1️⃣ Forward fold with hands slid palm side down under your feet. There are so many variations here, do what feels best for you! I love to use my toes to massage my wrists and rock back and forth! 2️⃣ Extended Arm: reach your arm out palm facing down and with your free hand gently press your fingers towards the floor. Hold for 30 seconds each side. 3️⃣ Interlaced hands behind back. This is a great additional stretch for your fingers too!! 4️⃣ Table Top with fingers facing towards you! Do gentle circles to open up wrists, make sure you go easy at first to test your flexibility here first! 5️⃣ Plank with hands facing towards feet. This one is more advanced but really helps to strengthen your wrists! ➡️➡️ Which stretch would you try?!

@jess

Do you think flexible yogis can all just pop right into poses? ⠀ @jessicaolie shows her favorite warm up for Hanumanasana Split. 🐒 How many steps + prep poses can you count? 😯 ⠀ Listen to your body, warm it up (you’re more flexible when you’re warm), + soak in the wisdom along the way! ✨ ⠀ The splits are one of my favorite things to practice and to teach. These are a few of my favorite ways to prep my body for the splits & you’ll get a few other things from them too because you know, everything is connected in some way or another. ⠀ Anyways, let’s get into it: 1. Downward dog to Lizard 🦎 10 each side, then HOLD until you feel it easing off 2. 3 leg downward dog to Pigeon 🐣 10 each side, then HOLD until you feel it releasing 3. Little combo for you babes: king pigeon ➡️ lizard with back leg up ➡️ lunge to half split vinyasa = REPEAT 3 TIMES EACH SIDE 4. FORWARD FOLD FLOW: walk your forward fold out ➡️ lift one leg (hold) ➡️ step back into pyramid pose = REPEAT 3 TIMES EACH SIDE. ⭐️Please make sure you’ve done your Sun sals or are warm before doing any of this. ⭐️Listen to your body, don’t force anything. ⭐️Use your breath to create space and length. 🔹🔹🔹 Yoga Retreats / Yoga Jobs / Private Yoga Teachers - tap link in bio.☝ #yogapractice

yogapractice. ⚠️Top tip every yogi should know: Learn how to modify!
@riva_g_ shows

⚠️Top tip every yogi should know: Learn how to modify! @riva_g_ shows common modifications for poses often offered in yoga classes that will help your hips + knees stay safe as your practice deepens. Which pose from these examples will you modify today? ⠀ Knee protection 💙 Just because Jon Snow had no problem ‘bending the knee’, doesn’t mean it’s an effortless experience for everyone... 😂 🤦🏻‍♀️ Ok, I know that joke deserves a massive eye roll, but the truth is, the thought of getting into certain yoga poses - especially ones that require deep hip rotation - warrants the very same response for many. Accessing these postures can be painful or uncomfortable on the knees, particularly if the required flexibility isn’t quite there yet. . It’s SO important to protect our knees - they are the largest, most complex, and perhaps the hardest working joints in our body! They LITERALLY absorb the shock of maneuvering us through every day life. 💃🏻🤾🏻‍♀️⛹🏻‍♀️ ⠀ Luckily we can modify these poses to still reap the benefits but without the pain or strain! Now isn’t that the bee's knees?! 🐝🙊 (Ok, I’m done, I promise!) ⠀ Modifications: 1️⃣ Toe stand - this pose requires deep external hip rotation in the elevated leg & demands an intense bend in the knee of the supporting leg. Try limiting the bend in both knees to 90 degrees. It’s still a great hip-opener & challenging balance, PLUS there’s an additional thigh-burning bonus in this variation! 🔥 2️⃣ Skandasana has an incredibly deep bend in the lunging knee. Keep it to 90 degrees & you might notice it actually requires more strength to hold this way! 💪🏼 3️⃣ Reclining Pigeon will provide the same hip-opening benefits as the upright version, but without the body weight putting pressure on the knee joint. Keep the toes of the front foot flexed to activate the muscles around the knee.👌🏼 4️⃣ Weight-bearing postures can be an issue for those with hypermobile joints. Keeping a small bend in the knee is one good modification, but taking a reclined variation provides a great stretch without putting pressure on the joint. 💙 The last slide has some poses to help strengthen the muscles around the knees. 👉🏼

Did you know, your shoulder mobility is anatomically different from other yogis you practice with? 🙀 ⠀ Individual anatomy is important to learn for practicing + modifying on the mat. 🧐 ⠀ Use these shoulder stretches demonstrated by @jessicarichburg to become aware of your unique anatomy (while enjoying some lovely stretching!!). 🤤 ⠀ Here’s a routine you can do to help increase shoulder flexibility and mobility. This will also help open the upper body and chest! You will need a strap, but you can substitute with a belt, scarf, etc. ▪️For the first exercise you can be seated or standing. You’re simply bringing the strap up, over the head and down the back toward the feet. Repeat 5-10x. Move slowly and listen to your body. ▪️Next, bring one hand down and the other hand up and over the head. (Repeat 5-10x on each side)▪️Raise the strap above the head, behind the back and then move up and down. ▪️The last exercise is drawing big circles by bringing one hand down and the other hand up and over the head and then back down. (Repeat 5-10x on each side)▪️Gomukhasana: reach one arm up and bend the elbow along the back. Bring the opposite arm below, bend the elbow and reach the finger tips toward each other (use a strap here for assistance). The last part of the video is shoulder stretches with blocks! This is great for opening the chest and working on backbends as well. You can always substitute blocks with sturdy books. 🔹🔹🔹 Yoga Retreats / Yoga Jobs / Private Yoga Teachers - tap link in bio.☝ #yogapractice

You can’t stretch once and expect to see a difference. Do these poses every day and I promise you’ll notice a difference after a few weeks! . ✨Stretch to the point of sensation... NOT pain! Stretching can feel uncomfortable, but learning the difference between discomfort and pain is important. If you force yourself into a shape you’re not ready for, it can cause injury. 🙅🏼‍♀️Not good! . ✨Breathe! Seems obvious, but the deeper you stretch, you may not realize you’re holding your breath. See if you can breathe a little bit deeper, especially in those poses that feel extra tight! . 🙏🏼NAMASTE🙏🏼 🔹🔹🔹 Yoga Retreats / Yoga Jobs / Private Yoga Teachers - tap link in bio.☝ #yogapractice
