I still have a lot of strength to rebuild after baby but I’m trying my best to practice patience. I’m getting a little hold in toe taps which is exciting, it’s a good step back to my pike press. For the first time ever I got grasshopper with my leg extended behind me tonight in class. I’m happy to be able to see the progress even when I’m running on no sleep. - 📷 @collinmyoga - #YogiSpringintoNature . Hosts: @dianarae.yoga @karey.evans_yoga @kristen_huth @mama_layla_rose .

Kapotasana was added into my practice a week ago, and I dread this deep back bending pose. I was stopped by my teacher when I first did this pose, coz I was flipping my grip rather than walking my fingers into catching my heels, which is usually being practiced in ashtanga. To my surprise, during this morning practice I was able to catch my heels using ashtanga method. I have never thought i will be able to catch on my own by walking in my hands. Next, is to catch heels from the air! Yes, with trust, surrender and breathe with calm mind, every impossible pose will be possible.

It’s okay to get caught up in the falsehoods that feed your insecurities. It’s also okay to let that shit go. Neither is good, neither is bad. They just are. Befriending your fears (those mental enemies) reduces the threat, ya know? In all things, there is love. Let. It. Be. And let yourself be. Your monkey mind can be calmed. Sometimes it’s easier said than done. Sometimes all it takes is meditation. Sometimes medication, or therapy (or both) are tools that benefit YOUR experience as well. Let. It. Be. _________________________ Some stuff I’ve been trying to understand and come to terms with, all coming from Mingyur Rinpoche on el YouTube. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly suggest the content/teachings/suggestions/whatever you want to call them. _________________________ Tonight was one of those free-flow, feeling myself, don’t give a fuck jamming out to 20’s tunes kind of night. Sweet dreams to you all. 💚 _________________________ #yoga #inversion #invert #pincha #bend #forearmstand #backbend #elevate #reach #makeshapes #mytoesies #tappytaptap #arch #yogi #fitgirls #pushthrough #mobility #openup #breathe #meditate #love #grow

#urdhvadhanurasana😊 support of wall and it's proper use helps a lot in deepening and developing urdhva dhanurasana. Without moving the position of legs, hands are taken down to the floor and moved further towards legs. While stepping palms closer to the legs, the front thigh and hips are pressed forward, ribs aways from hips which helps to protect the pressure in spine. It is also very advisable to put legs straight and inner thigs pressing to each other and up. In this pose even though spine seems to be the most dominant and active part but it has to be kept passive. Seems a lot of works for the pose 😇! Yes it is great pose to enjoy for opening heart and building confidence. There are many benefits too...let's do it😊✌! #yoga #yogaforlife #yogaforhealth #yogaandspirituality #backbend #yogaworld #yogaandme #gratitude #heart #compassion #confidence #urdhva #dhanurasana

. . “At the end of the day, you are ultimately the curator of your life. So, when you wake up each morning- take your life back. Take your life back from anything that feeds negativity within it, take your life back from the things that do not grow you, or move you. Make a pact with yourself to simply take control of who you will have the ability to be, and what you will have the ability to do, when you start to harness for yourself all of the energy you used to put into nourishing a life that never felt like it was truly yours. Take your life back and grow it into something that inspires you to rise with conviction and passion. Take your life back and grow it into something that you are proud of.” | Bianca Sparacino 🦋 . .

You wouldn't believe how long I spent trying to get a shot I was happy with 😅 My feet and legs were covered in mud by the end, but I got a decent camel pose variation for hump day 🐪 I'm so pumped to go to Alaska in a week to visit my very awesome friend, @ashleyhannigan7 ❤❤ And tomorrow I bring home a new friend 🐱 Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! . . . #yoga #igyoga #yogi #selflove #fitness #fitspo #backbend #camelpose #ustrasana #popflex #nightyoga #outdooryoga

Camel pose variation. Tonight I used the @downdogapp to do a 20 minute sequence, and during that there was a cross between camel pose and wild thing, and so I researched camel pose variations - I found a beautiful one that almost looked like en pointe! So I’m working towards that! #camelpose #camelposevariation #backbend #yogawoman #selflove #selfexpression #iamwoman #practicenotperfection #yogagirl #igyogi #igyogafam

Wk 3 Day 1 Yoga Challenge 🧘🏽‍♀️ sometimes the best way to move forward is through strengthening our weaknesses. Our bodies have a natural gravitation to either forward bending or back bending I am a forward bender’.

4 years ago today, I was laying in a hospital bed with bone and muscle injuries to my head, neck, spine, and both shoulders after being in a serious car accident. For the first few months I couldn’t even stand for more than 10 minutes before my back would give out on me. Now I’m 4 months into my contortion journey and 45 days away from my fourth pole competition. I can’t believe how far I’ve come since then. Pole and contortion have healed me more than physical therapy ever could and have restored me beyond my pre-accident condition. I am so grateful for my coaches and friends who have healed me physically and mentally❤️ “I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.” ~Philippians 4:13 #pole #poledance #poledancer #polesport #polefit #polefitness #polecompetitor #poledancersofig #contortion #bendy #flexible #strong #cirque #cirquelife #circusfreak #backbend #healing #recovery

Pose and repose. Evolution and involution. Centripetal and centrifugal. Motion and stillness. All dualities manifest themselves in the asana, just to disappear completely during the delicate balance of action and surrender required in each pose. . When everything which is not the Soul (mind, ego, senses, physical body) is silent and receptive, what is left and vibrates is the Soul. 💎🌟💎 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #dualities #action #surrender #kriyayoga #soul #iyengaryoga #iyengar #bksiyengar #yoga #setubandhasarvangasana #shoulderstand #backbend #yogi #motivation #inspiration #yogachallenge #yogapractice #yogajourney #yogagram #yogapose #yogalife #yogalove #veganyogi #asana #yogadaily #practicemakesperfect #practicedaily #practiceandalliscoming #yogaeverywhere #yogaeveryday #yogalife

#standingbackbend this pose is really hard. I always get sore whenever I practice this pose maybe bc I workout a lot. This was the slowest I can’t demo this pose. A proper warm up is a must before any #backbend practice to avoid injury #flexibility #strength #breath

What does community mean to you?⠀ ⠀ Making friends as an adult is so different than making friends as a kid. And totally not in a bad way. It’s more challenging maybe, but as adults I think we really seek out like minded people that challenge us and help us become better people ourselves. Maybe we know ourselves a little better and so we seek out people that have those qualities that help put our puzzle pieces together. ⠀ ⠀ Forever grateful to all of the humans in my tribe that inspire me #everydamnday and grateful to this ig yoga community for the endless inspiration. Yoga is a unifying force. Yoga makes the people come together. ⠀ 🧘🏿‍♀️🌏🧘🏼‍♀️🌍🧘🏾‍♂️🌎 🧘🏻‍♂️⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 📸: @keelybvo⠀ 👯‍♀️: @justsimplycare ⠀ 🌊 Outfit from @yogaclubbox⠀ 🌊 Top from @freepeople⠀ 🌊 Pants from @mpg⠀ 🌊 Use the link in my bio for 20% of your first box!
