After teaching 🙏🏻 어깨 때문에 자꾸 수련이 정체되는 것처럼 느껴질 때가 있는데 사실은 나의 어깨와 함께 가는 이 여정 자체가 수련이라는 것을 알고있기에 오늘도 그저 수련하는 수밖에 😇😇😇 #dropback #practicepracticepractice #practiceandalliscoming #urdhvadhanurasana #backbend #backbends #wheelpose #chakrasana #yogaeverywhere #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #yogalove #ヨガ #ヨガインストラクター #アシュタンガヨガ

For the sake of my SIJ, I've decided to stop practising asymmetrical backbends for the time being... #UrdhvaDhanurasana it shall be. It's funny how turning my wrist slightly in (middle finger forward instead of index) used to make the pain go away. Now it's the opposite. I have no idea what the hell is going on 🤔

It's been years since I've practice #urdhvadhanurasana (wheel) between having 2 kids in 2 years, c sections, and healing diastasis recti this pose was a no go for a long time. Life has come full circle and I can welcome it back to my practice. It feels liberating and a little exhausting 😂. I owe many thanks to @drtiffanydenny and #yogatherapy for helping me to heal my DR and for encouraging me not to do this pose months ago when it was a bad idea for my body.

Day 6 of #StartWithPincha yoga challenge pose is wheel pose. I love doing yoga in heels from time to time but it felt intense trying to do wheel pose with one leg lifted in those heels, it required even more work for back muscles. 💪🏼🎄💚hosts @livinglavidayoga @wanderyogi @karenmattar sponsor @flexilexi_fitness #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogaindress #yogainheels #yogainchurch #inversion #backbend #wheelpose #yogapose #wheelposevariation #balance #йога #мостик #urdhvadhanurasana #backworkout #fit #fitness #healthy #caliyoga #californiayoga #christmasyoga #christmastree #faith #church #jesus #bendygirlsdoitbetter

Were you that kid who walked around in your backbend? Like, literally- dropped into a backbend and walked around on your hands and feet inverted? I know not everyone did that, but I remember other kids doing it and I used to do it too. It’s funny how discovering different ways to move is an inherent trait to children, but adults worry (not unrightfully so, necessarily). Adults will often tell kids to stop doing what they’re doing for either the sake of safety or their own reputation in public. Thus, the evolution of our movement has been put on a controlled path of sitting, standing, and laying down. This is one reason my movement practice is so valuable to me. Because the human body has the potential for some pretty cool positions and movements! Though I try not to get to “woo”, I have personally experienced that the various places in the body are containers for thoughts (yes, thoughts- not verbal brain word thought), stories, and possible experiences. I know that being open to listening to those messages helps me to be more who I am. It’s not too late for anyone, ever, to just start moving differently and to experience that. Ok. That was my proper tangent for the day.

The many joys of being part of the #louisvilleyogacommunity is supporting it and the way it #supports me!! My first #vinyasaflow experience with @karabara44 was back in #2012 at @yogaeastlouky I was mesmerized by her #fluidity and #grace and so appreciated her #helpfultips and #yogaassists When it came time for #backbends I was so closed off she had to lift me into #wheelpose #urdhvadhanurasana since I hadn't done that pose since I was a child it felt both #exhilirating and as though I would burst open ✨✨✨ Since then Kara has continued to influence my growth and my understanding as a #yogateacher along with countless other teachers within this #yogacommunity Today at The Speed @speedartmuseum her #soldout #yogaclass brought #together several #yogis I knew @soulcleanseyoga @lee.marie_yogi @micah_sea @kimdeetsch @ironmanchris07 and so many more I didn't know which means this #louisvilleyoga #community is #growing and #gathering such a #beautifulthing #muchlove to you all and #thankyou for #allthatyouare #soulcleanseyoga #omsupyoga #ayogacommunitygathering

Creating Space. It can be confronting creating space in our minds, our bodies and in our lives. Sometimes it takes courage & vulnerability. I love this pose and you wouldn't know but everytime I'm about to get into it I have a tiny moment of freak out inside first 😂 then I always feel amazing afterwards. Sometimes we don't know what we might see about ourselves or what we are creating space for. But in order for something new to come in...we must be open. Breathe. Meditate. Walk. Do a backbend. Create some space & who knows what could come in 🌞🦋🌟 #creatingspace #wheel #urdhvadhanurasana #beopen #connect #meditate #breathe #beach #nature #upsidedown #yogini

#thelastyogi - Day 10 - #urdhvadhanurasana #upwardfacingbow #parsvavasisthasana #wildthingpose ... “An object cannot make you good or evil.  The temptation of power, forbidden knowledge, even the desire to do good can lead some down that path.  But only you can change yourself.” - The Bendu (Rebels, S03E01) ... The Bendu is another character in the Star Wars canon. He is a Force user who is neither Jedi nor Sith, not aligned with the light or dark. With TLJ just a few days away, it will be interesting to see how @riancjohnson balances the Force. ... Please please please no spoilers in your #thelastyogi posts. Someone already spoiled a plot point for me in the movie by commenting on the latest trailer, which I purposely did NOT watch. Thank you.

@gypsyyogalove . . I love my curves. I love all the pieces of me. I tell myself these daily, because the power of thought is one of our greatest tools and gifts. What you think, what vibe you put out there, is what you attract. So if you want chance, start with how you think. Tell yourself you are amazing, you are a goddess. Tell your self how much love yourself. Put out positive vibes. Only think about what you want, and the good things. The power of thought is insanely powerful. Use it. _ Many of you keep asking how I do these snowga shots/ if I’m cold. Well there is snow on the ground, so its certainly not as warm as I’d like out. But its always warm given the time of year when I do go out to shoot. I always have a hot liquid with me + big wintery clothing I dress overtop of my outfit. So I’m never without super warm clothing for long. I love to create, I wear what I pick that day regardless of what is its ( shorts, Leo, leggings) and I make the best of the weather that is around me. _ But I am very grateful @aloyoga made such soft and easy to layer clothing ❤️ Especially this Leo and leg warmers. _ #aloyoga #beagoddess #backbend #yogainspiration #loveyourbody #loveandalliscoming #urdhvadhanurasana #LegendaryBooty #fitness #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #instafitness #fitnessjourney #igfitness #fitnessfreak

Dziś i wczoraj joga w Spale, a jutro? Nie wiadomo 💜 Ten weekend spędziłam w kolebce polskich fizjoterapeutów - w Spale. Oprócz przyjmowania nauk od najlepszego z najlepszych 🙏🏻 mieliśmy możliwość poznać czym jest Miłość i Jedność - czyli po prostu poczuliśmy na własnej skórze znaczenia słowa JOGA. Jestem ogromnie wdzięczna za to spotkanie. Działy się takie rzeczy, przez które w najbliższym czasie niektórzy mogą pomyśleć, że oszalałam 😉 Ale czy rzeczywiście? Czy nie wszyscy jesteśmy wariatami? Może, aby w końcu zacząć żyć trzeba wskoczyć na głęboką wodę? Gdzie Miłość, gdzie poszukiwania, gdzie spokój, wiara, cierpliwość tam spełnienie.

It’s been two months since @zottimi invited me to join the #1monthwheelpose challenge, so here is my current Urdhva Dhanurasana (top) compared with last month (bottom). I had fewer practice days last month due to traveling, so my arms are more bent again but it seems that my chest is opening up a little more. It also felt less restrained. Would @lisayogafrance post an update on her wheel pose too?

Day 10 of #12daysofasanas is a backbend. My wheel pose is continuously evolving, very slowly but very surely. The improvement isn’t usually visual, but so incredibly physical. I can feel my body accepting and now really flourishing in this asana. Where I used to feel constricted, I now feel free. Where I felt tension, I now feel strength. And where I felt fear for this pose, now I only feel love. Only up from here ! . .

Doesn't really matter that the pictures aren't of good quality or that my legs are not perfectly straight there, the first time getting a headstand right in a public place (oh not those public parks I practice almost every night 🤣)and getting some pictures taken is special. - I still struggle cause sometimes I can't get it right but I've improved alot since I started practicing it. Still need to strengthen my very weak core 😭 I'll get there hopefully 😐 Swipe right. - And there were two times I could get the tripod headstand right that the other guy (Daphy) was doing behind me in the second picture so next one is getting that one right. 🙏🏼🤪 - Thank you for the pictures @jimboslices . . . . . . #yogapost #chakrasana #urdhvadhanurasana #backbend #loveforbackbends #Practiseyogachangeyourworld #potd #yogaeverydamnday #photooftheday #yoginisofinstagram #yogaeverywhere #fitnessmotivation #yogaanywhere #loveforyoga #discoverhongkong #fitgirls #yogavibes #yogalife #fromwhereyoudratherbe #fitgirls #fitnessgoals #fitnessmotivation #asthangayoga #yogaaddict #cntravellerindia #yogatribe #yogisofinstagram #manipuriyogis #indianyoginis

#thelastyogi - Day 🔟 - Wild Thing, Upward Facing Bow/Wheel Pose. I elected #UrdhvaDhanurasana. This was the first time I’ve done wheel with a bad cold. The struggle was very real with a stiff back and shoulders. . Speaking of struggles, that is what Star Wars is all about. There are wars, battles, fights, duels, etc. This plays out in the struggle between the light and the dark side, between good and evil and within. All of this is discussed in great depth in the book “The Gospel according to Star Wars, Second Edition: Faith, Hope, and the Force” by John C McDowell, Professor of Theology at University of Newcastle. McDowell points out that the black and white nature of Star Wars is similar to similar to Manichaeism which based its beliefs on a dualistic struggle between good (spiritual world of light) and evil (the material world of darkness). He goes on the quote Lucus: . The idea of a positive and negative, that there are two sides to an entity, a push and pull, a yin and a yang, and the struggle between the two sides are issues of nature that I wanted to include in the film.” . The force is present in everything so the struggle in Star Wars is one of balance. Of course, that links with the Taoist concept of Yin and Yang which are also present in everything. Yin means moon or shade in Mandarin and Yang means sun or light. Yin is associated with calm while Yang is dynamic. We seek to find balance of these elements in our practice whether we explicitly practice Yin/Yang yoga or not. In my practice of Katonah Yoga such Taoist principles are integrated. [Continued in the first comment] Hosts: @dwinnerxfit @kericyoga . The force is strong with these two.
