DAY 8: โ€ข I C E B L U E โ€ข
USE #2 : Do you have a green thumb and a love for gardening? Make sure to give your body the relaxation it needs after a day of planting, weeding, mowing and pruning by applying Ice Blue essential oil blend to your lower back, arms, hands and feet. This application will help relax your muscles and bring you relief after a strenuous day in the garden. A nice chilled glass of pinot gris afterwards wouldnโ€™t go a miss either ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just sayin.

Just updating! Today in the morning was good I was actually able to stand by myself. I tried out some stretches that my doctor had told me to do. Of course I push myself too hard and here I am on the couch, I canโ€™t move. My back is in such sharp pain, Iโ€™m crawling to the restroom. As I lay here, I felt so emotionally drained cause I was scared of not working, so much events coming up as well. But of course your health first. As of yesterday I told myself I will NEVER have this happen to me again. This is will never immobilize me again. But first rest. I decided to look up everything and some to make sure I WILL never go thru this. Iโ€™m also so thankful for everyone checking on me, worrying me, and also to my best friend Tony @tonygilrivera . Of course here he is by myside just hanging out with me comforting me and also having to carry me when I have to get up! This pain is so unreal and so intense and literally emotionally draining. But thank you for being here right by myside. Your the greatest blessing and your more than my best friend, your my family! I love you so much thank you for being right here. Thank you mom for staying at the hospital all night and almost letting me collapse in your arms. Thank you Family and friends for worrying about and for calling and the support. Iโ€™ll be out of work for about a week๐Ÿ˜ฉ, but itโ€™s what I have to do to heal then so be it. Screaming in pain, not being able to support myself on my own feet! Iโ€™m thankful that Iโ€™m getting taken car or rn tho instead of on my own. Stomach pains even affecting me, I never want to feel like this.But this will be the last time! Sciatic Nerve I will conquer you! #sciaticarelief #sciaticasucks #lowerbackrelief #relief #sciaticnerve #iwillconquerthis #amazingfamily #change #yoga #streches #thistooshallpass #bestfriend #greatful #blessed #icandothis #bettershape #workoutmotivation #almost

Todayโ€™s post isnโ€™t the great! Send positive vibes! So I suffer from Sciatic Nerve freak outs probably once a year. Exactly a year ago it happened as well, It eventually healed and I never returned for the full procedure. Well as of May 15 I bent over and hurt it again. Today I learned that I have to retain my back proper postures how to sit look and well rebuild my back! This pain was one of the worse pains Iโ€™ve experienced in my life. Anyone with Any info on Sciatic Neeve remedies or workouts that strengthen lower back. Here in a week Iโ€™ll begin. Not allowed to over due myself! But after today and not being able to walk and literally fall to my knees with any movement, falling in the middle of the road cause I couldnโ€™t no more. This will be the last time I ever will be here in the ER with this type of pain! So any info let me knowโค๏ธ #sciaticarelief #sciaticnerve #sciaticarelief #info #sciaticasucks #lasttime #lowerbackpain #lowerbackrelief #lowerbackremedies #icandothis #neveragain #relief #rebuild #retrain #backsupport #spinehealth #backunderconstruction

Why I love antigravity yoga ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ. . . three weeks ago, I got news from my doc that I have a herniated disc in my lower back ๐Ÿ˜žIt made complete sense from all of the back pain and numbness in my leg/foot that I was experiencing for a while โœ–๏ธ At first I was completely heart broken and thought I would have to stop working out. Thankfully this wasnโ€™t the case! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโ€” It turns out this injury of mine has been a blessing in disguise. Since then, I have given a great amount of time and attention towards treating it and educating myself on what it is exactly, how this happened, and how to move forward. Through physical therapy, working with a personal trainer, researching a ton on my own, & talking to others with the same injury (i.e. most of my fitness instructors and even my boyfriend!) ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I have been able to learn a great deal about my own body & have worked out consecutively for the past 10 days with very little to no pain! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ With Antigravity, there is a CLEAR and INSTANT relief on any kind of tightness that I have in my lower back! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Hanging upside down stretches out our backs and spine in ways that are just simply โœจmagicalโœจ LOL! Not to mention, it is definitely challenging and FUN! SO MANY benefits๐Ÿ’ฏ #antigravity #upsidedown #benefitsofantigravity #lowerbackrelief #recovery #workout #antigravityyoga #workoutbuddies #crunch #crunchfitness

This pose will forever remind me of my first yoga studies with my teacher, Kathleen Pringle, at Stillwater Yoga. A lovely very pregnant mama said, โ€œI will birth my baby in this pose!โ€ She was so happy to sense the extension and anti-gravity on her pelvis and lower back. Happy Birthday to my beloved teacher today, Kathleen Pringle! And love to all the mamas out there, whether you have birthed babies or not, mamas are gonna mama. ๐Ÿ’ž#yoga #loveyourmother #ardhachandrasana #prenatalyoga #lowerbackrelief #iyengaryoga #birthday

This is the Cadi. Short for Cadillac, a fabulous piece of equipment for all sort of body requirements.๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’ซ
.
Here I am, practicing another version of the Pelvic Curl - one of my favourites for when lower back is really compressed and stiff๐Ÿ‘Œโœจ
.
The spring bar under my knees provide an extra help elongating my spine while the #pushthroughbar on the other side, challenges torso stability, arms flow and offers a bigger range of lengthening the spine๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ซโœจ
.
If you notice the way I got the bar under my knees, youโ€™re prob wondering... What? How? Why? ๐Ÿค” Well, Iโ€™ve got a hip labrum tear atm, being unable to bring the knee close to my chest - so had to be creative to keep doing this ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ but thatโ€™s story for another post. ๐Ÿ’ซโœจ

The pose I did earlier is very easy to get into here is a video on how to get into that position. It is important to slowly roll your back over and unroll it to stretch the lower all the way to the upper back muscles.

~ SEA OF VITALITY
In #accupressure they say that the #seaofvitality, located in the lower back on the quadratas lumborum muscle is a powerful #triggerpoint that may alleviate low back pain and fatigue, fortify the digestive organs and immune system and help the body replenish during times of personal transformation.

Half Pigeon > Eka Pada Raja Kapotasanaโ €
. โ €
EHKa-Pada-RHA-ja-KAH-pot-AHS-annaโ €
Eka = Oneโ €
Pada = Footโ €
Raja= King or Royalโ €
Kapota = Pigeonโ €
Asana = Poseโ €
. โ €
Physical Benefits: โ €
๐ŸŒŸ Strengthens the inner thighs and core.โ €
๐ŸŒŸ Stretches outer hip, inner groin, and hip-flexors.โ €
๐ŸŒŸ When the torso is upright it lengthens the front line of the torso, expanding the chest and shoulders. โ €
๐ŸŒŸWhen the torso is folded forward it lengthens the back line of the torso, including the lower back. .โ €
๐ŸŒŸ Stimulates the abdominal and pelvic organs as well as the heart and lungs. โ €
.โ €
Common Misalignments: โ €
๐ŸŒ™ Collapsing rather than engaging through the inner thigh and core in this upright position. โ €
๐ŸŒ™ Leaning to one side rather than having the pelvis level. โ €
๐ŸŒ™ When folded forward, allowing the weight to spill in to the knee rather than keeping the weight in the hips. โ €
๐ŸŒ™ Back leg and ankle sickled rather than extended straight out of the hip.โ €
.โ €
Teacher's Note: โ €
๐Ÿ’ซ This is typically a great posture for students experiencing sciatica and/or lower back discomfort. โ €
๐Ÿ’ซ For students with tighter hips where the hip is floating substantially off the floor, use props such as a blanket roll, bolster or block for under the hip for additional support.โ €
๐Ÿ’ซ For knee issues where this posture is inaccessible, consider Thunderbolt/Deer or Reclined Figure Four. โ €

Leg Stretch #3 and it's a great stretch for your legs, tractioning out your lower back, and helping to line up your pelvic bones. Start in leg stretch 1 (as shown above), grab your strap, lie back, relax. Then cross your left leg over your body and wait for 30 seconds. Don't forget to switch sides.

With 4am starts and midnight finishes, it can be hard to fit any sort of workout into my routine currently. Today, however, I have the luxury of working from home and despite feeling very run down, Iโ€™ve forced myself to do a small floor workout in my pjs - giving my body a really good stretch and concentrating on activating my core and pelvic floor. Exercise doesnโ€™t always mean a hectic, sweaty workout - small movements can be just as effective, especially when youโ€™re tired and thatโ€™s all your body can handle!

Today I am feeling like crap. I am tired, drained and generally feeling exhausted. My back is in agony and after seeing the physio tonight, Iโ€™m just fed up. However after a long, hard chat with myself, I know that only I can fix this. Itโ€™s down to me to put the effort in, daily. The pain in my back, which is a pain in the butt, is never going to go away unless I get my butt moving. The most important project youโ€™ll ever work on is yourself ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

And this is precisely what Iโ€™m going to do today. Iโ€™ve completely neglected my routine over the past 10 days due to work travels and can feel the difference today - my back is sore and my body is drained, but tomorrow is a new day. But first, tea and time spent with loved ones โ˜•๏ธ ๐Ÿ’•

Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. The world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.

Two weeks from today {Sunday, March 25th} come and be reminded of how to surrender, to soften, to melt, and to choose love, again and again. A focus on the lower back, to release tension, using asana, props, breath work, and essential oils. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’“โœจ

The core. It sounds stupid, but I never realised just how important your core is until now. It provides the strength to keep your body upright and for movement, so no wonder when itโ€™s in poor condition that additional stress is placed on the lower back. This is a huge issue for me - spending hours and hours sat at work and not investing enough time in myself has resulted in a weak core. So Iโ€™m trying my absolute best to do some simple core exercises each day with my daily stretches. Itโ€™s horrible and I hate it, but itโ€™s the only way to get back on that road to recovery.

Another successful #aerialclass with @meredithismia today in @vanillaskyyoga if you missed it you missed out ๐Ÿ™ƒwe even had a merman amongst the usual beautiful mermaids in class today and he found it very challenging so don't think getting upside down is easy ๐Ÿ’๐ŸผI just make it look that way ๐Ÿคฃno but seriously it's fun ๐Ÿค—, and once you get over the fear of falling on your head and surrender to the unforced flow of circulation back to your heart ๐Ÿ’–without trying, allowing the #yogahammock to support you it's very calming and centering and that's the whole point of yoga - finding peace within yourself ๐Ÿ™ #namaste .

Rounding off a rather stressful and exhausting week with a 60 min gentle Yin yoga class courtesy of @yogaglo ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป I find Yin Yoga especially good for me as it quietens my very hectic mind, but more importantly focusses on the lower part of the body - my hips, pelvis and lower spine. All of which are completely messed up in my case. Doing a class online allows me to take things at my own speed, but means Iโ€™m still following an instructor when I canโ€™t get out the house!

I took my Prana Pillow with me across the world last month. It came with me on the plane and helped me stay comfortable during a 13 hours flight. It was there at night, in my room, when I'd get back from exploring gorgeous places... I love my @pranamat products and that's why I filmed a video review and it's now up on my YouTube Channel, Yoga With Gandha (link in bio). I'd love for you to watch it and let me know what you think! Also, share it with anyone who suffers from back pain, circulation issues, sore muscles, sleep problems... It makes a massive difference!

Thursday vibes...Ah, the lower back, what a truly complicated, amazing and fragile structure made up of ligaments, muscles, fascia, joints, bones, emotions and energy.
And chronic lower back pain is on the rise in the US. According to new research, a whopping 80% of Americans will experience lower back pain. This can be caused by poor posture, a pelvis that is out of alignment or clenched pelvic floor muscles caused by trauma, stress or fear.
Bottom line is we've got to treat our beautiful back with the respect that it deserves as the very foundation that holds your body upright by giving it a little love every day โ€“ youโ€™ll find the investment in prevention will pay dividends if it helps you avoid back problems. -
Here are a few easy tips to keep your spine healthy and supple:
โœจGoing upside down every day on your #loroxalignedroller feels incredible and will tremendously help restore and heal lower back issues. Inversions are amazing to decompress the discs of your spine and help redistribute your spinal fluids. โœจTry rolling out your feet with a tennis ball to maintain healthy plantar fascia which has a huge impact on the health and mobility of your spine. โœจBe sure to build and maintain a strong and flexible core, pelvic floor and hip rotators especially your glute medius.... โœจGive the #tsytransformation a try to get all of these benefits and much more! #linkinbio ๐Ÿ“ท @nickisebastian shooting for @jennikayne ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Hanging out on my inversion table every morning and night has helped me heal from my lower back problems. I highly recommend you try this torture device if you have back problems, or need to fix your posture. I do 5 min 2x a day and after 4 days I feel the difference. I went to the doctor was told I might have to ease up or stop working out until my back issues clears up. I am back at full activity and almost 100%. #inversiontable #hangingupsidedown #lowerbackrelief #jiujitsu #bjj #cali #lifestyle #healing #decompression

Bridge is a great movement for the posterior chain muscle group and excellent stretch for the anterior chain muscle group. It engages the muscles, such as hamstrings, adductors, glutes and small muscles in the lower back. Once lifted it also stretches primarily your hip flexors and the front of the spine.
The benefits are great: strengthens your core, tones your butt, helps with lower back pain, helps to improve your squats and hinge movements, and believe it or not it will help to decrease your knee pain! Not having enough control of the femur might result in femur sliding forward which causes internal rotation or collapsing to the midline of the body. This movement is fundamental for everyone of us no matter what your fitness level. There are several variations of bridge, such as lifting one leg up and doing movements with only one leg as a foundation on top your shoulders (immediately more engagement in the muscles listed above), incorporating a stability ball underneath your feet, bringing an additional weight on top of your hips or even just marching in place as hips are up.

Set up:
Lie on your back, knees bent 90 degrees, and feet flat on the floor. Feet are hip-width and you bring heels as close to your hips as possible. Place hands by your sides, palms facing down. To protect your lower back, contract your glutes, inner thighs and your abdominals. As you continue contracting lift your hips off the floor so that your body is in one line from shoulders to knees. Hold for a moment and lower back on the mat one vertabrae at the time. There's no rush, take time to pause at the top and feel your back side of the body engaged, and then slowly lower down. Repeat 15 times for 2 sets. Remember to stretch and elongate the back side of the body afterwards.

Have you ever heard of Thai yoga massage? My good friend Mellisa, who is a Thai yoga massage practitioner in Baltimore, joined me on my #livetothrive show today (check it out in my snap feed!) to explain what it is and why itโ€™s so beneficial for your mind and body. ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธItโ€™s completely different than normal massage, one of the biggest reasons being that you wear clothes and are on a mat on the floor. This is because she is using her body to stretch you while applying pressure. Pretty much like a yoga class on steroids, without you doing the work. How amazing is that?!
.
I discovered Thai massage in Thailand last year and had some mixed experiences. Some were great, and some were horrific, to the point where I walked out of a massage after 10 minutes once. When I came back the US and became friends with Melissa, she showed me her way of doing Thai massage and I am now a loyal lover of this practice and regularly get treated from her for my lower back and tight hips.
.
The pose she has me in releases my lower back while opening my chest. It feels amazing!!
.
Check out the live video In my snap feed๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽฅwe made today to learn more about Thai yoga massage and what it may help you with! If you have any more questions, feel free to contact Melissa directly through email at melissamp0212@gmail.com or her website at www.melsthaibodywork.com

So I know this looks a lot more "kinky" then serene but I guess if you're into that #bondage #shibari #ropebondage #snm #bdsm type of thing you'll probably enjoy #aerialyoga too ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜นbut if you're not into that, and are just looking for a style of yoga that is a great way to open your shoulders, back, and hips and feel weightless while doing so than this class is for you ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿค—today was my second class learning some new #aerialsilks and I was not disappointed at all! Thank you to @meredithismia for the amazing class and the ๐Ÿ“ธto promote your awesome class. She is amazing and she's teaching again on Tuesday at 11am & Thursday at 10:30am our beautiful studio @vanillaskyyoga next week. If you want to learn to fly like a ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ…๐Ÿฆ‡then please come to her class you won't regret it I sure don't๐Ÿ˜‡

Getting back to more handstand/headstand prep work and decided to launch a new tag #handstandhelpers (open to anyone! See below) โžก๏ธ Today starts a short series of beginner and intermediate #matwork exercises I have that you won't need any equipment for!
______________________________________
Today's series:
๐Ÿ”น๏ธBeginner level spine and shoulder release stretches, swimming variations, and downward dog prep stretch
๐Ÿ”น๏ธ This was one full flow I just cut in 2 because it was a little long, start with top video
๐Ÿ”น๏ธ I am sped up and showing each exercise once or twice, you should practice each exercise 6-8 times on each side
๐Ÿ”น๏ธ Even for more advanced students these are excellent warm up exercises, foundational movements are always important ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
______________________________________
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ I would LOVE for anyone else working on handstands to jump in and use the tag #handstandhelpers to build a resource for people getting started on their handstand journey. I know @pilatesplaceyyc @riverrushfitness @momentum_pilates @beccaj.pilates are working on them too ๐Ÿ˜‰

**SWIPE RIGHT TO SEE THE CORRECT HIP-FLEXOR STRETCH** stretching gets mocked alot, especially by lunks. But did you know that tight hip flexors can cause the following: -lower back pain due to pulling the entire pelvis forward (anterior tilt) long term
-inactive glutes due to the tight hip flexor preventing the glutes from engaging (fighting eachother)
-knee pain and a rotated femur in the socket, also called "desk hip"
-can spread up the body causing slipped ribs (I've experienced this)
-inability to perform squats and deadlifts because as the body pivots at the hip joint, the hip flexors prevent full stretching thus the back bends near the bottom of the squat and beginning of the dead pull

|| LOWER BACK LOVE ||
.
Ever notice your lower back gets sore when youโ€™re stressed? .
Our psoas (hip flexor) muscles attach our legs to our lower spine, and these unique muscles are wired up to our autonomic nervous system (stress response). Chronic stress and emotional trauma can lead to tension in the psoas that then tugs on the lower back causing stiffness and pain. (Sitting a ton doesnโ€™t help either!) .
For lower back relief, try this: .
โ€ขyouโ€™ll need a firm cushion, block, or bolster and about 20 minutes of time dedicated to relaxation. .
โ€ขlay flat on your back with your knees bent and feet on the floor .
โ€ขlift your hips, and slide the cushion under your sacrum (the back of your pelvis just above your tailbone). .
โ€ขThe cushion should be low - you want your lower back hanging OFF the cushion! .
โ€ขBring your arms overhead to create more traction (a gentle stretch and lengthening for your spine) .
โ€ขRelax here for at least 5-15 minutes with slow calming breathes. .
โ€ขCome out by lifting your hips, slide the cushion out, and then rest on your back for at least 5 mins with knees bent and feet on the floor. .
โ€ขthen hug your knees and take a twist on each side before coming up.

Iโ€™ve been incorporating my yoga wheel into my home practice more recently and thought it would be fun to share so lemme know if ur into it, have questions, or how you use your #yogawheel !

This #yogaprop can be used in so many ways. The fact it rolls makes it really fun to play around with in vinyasa because itโ€™s so easy to move & a different tactile experience than moving around blocks. Because of its buoyancy the wheel can help you safely deepen into stretches while staying active and not over shooting it. ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ This extended #baddhakonasana variation is with feet intentionally further away from your bum with a gap wide enough to fit the wheel between your flexed feet. Inhale sit tall, exhale slowly roll the wheel by pressing yours hands into the wheel and roll forward. Bring your navel to your spine. Draw your shoulders down your back. Release your head. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Day 2: Twist (supine twist). Sometimes silence is the best answer because it can't be misquoted or twisted into a lie.
Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent. Proverbs 17:28 #12daysofasanas #day2 #twist #supinetwist #lowerbackrelief #silence #peace

There are a few poses that I consider in my top 3 and these would be in that group. I consider both of these basically the same just different variations. The video is of #couchstretch and it is intense. What you can't see here is that my glut is activated and I'm trying to keep a neutral spine (so hips draw toward ribs, ribs stay down). If you can't come into flexion or bare that much weight in your knee then option 2 & 3 are great. In the photos what you can't see is that the heel of my extended leg is pushing into the #wall (and upward energy) and again hips and ribs draw towards each other aka #posteriortilt .
