"I still search for you in crowds, in empty fields and soaring clouds.

In city Lights and passing cars, on winding roads and wishing stars.

I wonder where you could be now, for years I've not said your name out loud.

And longer since I called you mine- time has passed for you and I.

But I have learnt to live without, I do not mind - I still love you anyhow.

_Lang Leav_

I thought this picture was good enough to deserve some poetic words "Wishing stars"

As backends open the chest and upper body they stimulate the Heart Chakra, Anahata Chakra, allowing us to open more fully on our lives too, to our emotions, experience and in our relationships.

Good morning and have a wonderful week

The hardest part of this wheel variation I learned from @agatsufitness is getting up πŸ˜… Once I’m up it feels amazing so have so much more space in my T-Spine and I find this way easier than having my feet on the ground. If you’re going to try this one at home (yay!) make sure you have a friend in front of you with their hands on your shoulders the first time to help spot your head and give you a mini boost up. And seriously be ready to push up big time. Once you feel comfortable then add the kicks for some cha-cha-cha πŸ’ƒπŸΌ Yes that’s the Sydney harbour bridge in the background. Yes it is the middle of winter here. Yes I’m in a sports bra and it’s +15C. Yes I know there is so much to be grateful for in this life of mine and yes I am soaking it all in β˜€οΈπŸ˜βœ¨

After somewhat accepting this rain and then having it stop briefly once I got off work, I decided to catch some sun rays, and practice some new yoga poses. 😬 This one is called the Kapotasana or Pigeon Pose and is an asana. This pose helps the Psoas major muscle, Thorax, Abdomen, Thigh, Inguinal region, Ankle, and Throat. My ankles were sprained really badly in high school and ache at times after running so this really helped ease some tension I had built up from standing all day. This did take a couple tries and as you can see I still need some practice, as your forearms are supposed to touch the ground. But bring double jointed in my shoulders made it a bit awkward with movement. You can see it def was a bittttt painful,but like all new poses = no pain no gain! πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ˜› #yogainspiration #yogaeverydamnday #yoga #aloyogachallenge #backbend #backbends #asana #kapotasana #kapotasanavariation #kapotasanapose #pigeonpose #pigeonvariation #yogavibes #fitfam #fitspo #fitness #fitnessgirl #fitnessfun #fitnessmotivation #stretches

On April 23rd 1910, Theodore Roosevelt said in a speech, β€œIt is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” To the people who spend their life criticizing from the sidelines - I feel sorry for you. I feel sorry that you will never know the joys of succeeding in something you spend years working towards, that you feel so disappointed at the direction of your own life that you lash out at others.
To those struggling through the β€œarena” of life - keep going. Keep your head up, and your heart strong. The ups and downs of this life can dirty you up and tire you out, but seeking out the passions that set your heart ablaze will always be better than sitting on the sidelines and living vicariously through the lives of others, allowing your jealousy to seethe through like overflowing sewage.
Roosevelt gave this speech over 100 years ago - before the day and age of social media - long before comparison became the greater issue that it is. Ergo, humanity has always been the same. The time is different, but the problems are the same. So throw off the ties that bind you, the things that prevent you from pursuing that which is worth it. Don’t be afraid to step out in faith. Don’t be afraid to be like the man in the arena.#sundaymusings

Sunday evening PJ yoga πŸ™
This year I have seen a huge improvement in both strength and flexibility and this is all down to regular yoga practice and pole dancing! It is important to have tangible goals other than weight loss to keep you motivated and moving forward. ↗️
This year my main yoga goal was to hold Sirsasana unaided and I am so happy that my strength is now at a stage where I can do this! all I need to perfect now is the balance so I can keep my feet together and body in a straight line πŸ§œβ€β™€οΈ .
My Urdhva dhanurasana is getting there and the back bends really help in making certain pole moves look beautiful!

.
A primeira camada Γ© chamada Anamaya Kosha, a camada alimento. Corresponde ao nosso corpo material, a manifestação mais densa do ser humano. Γ‰ a partir de Anamaya Kosha que embarcamos na jornada em direção ao centro do nosso ser, percebendo o corpo fΓ­sico como um campo de experimentação e pesquisa sem fim! 🧐

As prΓ‘ticas das posturas e respiraçáes (asanas e pranayama) criam espaΓ§o para auto investigação, para sentirmos e percebermos nosso corpo com maior intimidade. Γ‰ uma forma de se fortalecer, de cultivar presenΓ§a e estabilidade para abrir o caminho para dentro com mais coragem. 🌌

My goal for this month is to improve my backbends πŸ’œ a good back bend requires flexibility of not only the back, but also the shoulders and quads - which are my weakest links right now! My quads especially are super tight. To be honest... I've been avoiding backbends in my home practice for this very reason... but great improvements aren't made by practicing only what we are good at, we must practice what challenges us, even if it's less fun at first. You cannot become great at something unless you are willing to be bad at it first. For a little extra push and accountability to get the ball rolling, I attended a yoga class at @elitepoleandfitness and requested we work on backbends! This was the result of that class... how long will it take to get my foot to my head? Well I guess that just depends on how much I practice! #PracticeAndALLIsComing πŸ•‰οΈ
β€’
PS... I used to be extremely flexible as a gymnast and cheerleader many years ago... not only could I hold my foot in my hand for this scorpion pose, but I did it while being hoisted over the heads of my teammates as a flyer in cheer mounts. They say if you don't use it, you lose it... that is certainly true of flexibility! Getting my flexibility back has been a painful process for me both physically and emotionally... but sticking to my yoga practice is key to achieving my goals - in all areas of my life. Hold me accountable IG loves!!! β™‘β™‘β™‘

One of the best things about teaching is when a student trusts you to lead them into new territory. If a student relinquishes enough control to let you (literally) take their hand and move them somewhere they haven't yet been, it feels as though all of the training, teaching, and hard work was worth it. The fear and confusion that comes with #kapotasana can often make a practitioner bail long before they should. But when the student/teacher relationship involves trust, communication, and wisdom, magic happens. @tonnachelle92 😍😍😍 #sevayoga #fortsmithyoga #fortsmithyogi #arkansasyoga #arkansasyogi #fortsmith #arkansas #backbends

Today is day 7 and the last day of the #getstretchyeveryday challengeπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜­today's poses is camel pose. I thought some other poses were hard for me well this one is really hard for me lol again I think is fear and tension. I have been trying to breathe through the poses and not just giving up but this one was a bit much for me even with the blocks so I think I have to pick up a bit more blocks lol. Anyways I had so much fun with this challenge and I so proud of myself.

I may not be able to do wheel, a handstand, many arm balances, or the full expression of goddess etc. but I feel great doing what I can. It’s a lot of fun to keep track of progress (hence I’ve started taking photos of poses) and even more so to feel the difference in yoga poses the more I practice. I’ve gone to Instagram for inspiration to try different poses we don’t normally get to in classes but I can’t help but be discouraged by these insane featured photos of back bends and arm balances, and straight up body contortions. Most people would consider me flexible and I can’t imagine ever being able to do what I see. It takes a long time and a certain kind of anatomy to do what’s featured in some yoga social media and not necessarily safe for everyone to do. I hope folks see that that’s not all there is to yoga and seek it out anyways. There’s still beauty and strength in a baby back bend and the intention behind yoga. I’ll continue to deepen my practice and share my progress but still have to remind myself to not compare myself to others. I’m a yoga teacher and I can’t do a handstand... yet! And that’s okay πŸ™

This lady is incredible, she is senior citizen who will try anything asked of her in yoga class. When class is too challenging she modifies her practice to suit her body
She is loosening her spine before practice #strong #backbends #yogawheel #asyoungasyourspine #healthyyogi #yogaforallages #yogadailypractice

It is so important to prepare your mind and body before and activity, mentally or physically.
