I had such a great weekend with this inquisitive and totally engaged group of yoga and Pilates teachers, acupuncturists, body workers and movement educators. .
One of my favorite things about teaching is what I get to learn from my student’s questions about the material I present. This group had so many brilliant questions and creative ideas over the course of 2 days, it was hard to believe how fast our 12 hours together flew by.
Thank you Jean Eng at @connectyogatoronto for welcoming me into your home and your community. I 💙Toronto!

Okay, hip abduction, round two! ⚡️

Passive vs active range:

In the top photo, I am engaging my core to keep my pelvis/low back stable (to ensure I’m not compensating) and then using my hand to lift the leg up into abduction. This is my *passive* range of motion. The action is coming from my arm stretching my leg into position.

In the bottom photo, I am again keeping my back/pelvis stable, but now I am actively lifting the leg as high as possible. This is my *active* range of motion.

There's a pretty big difference, right? I have lots of passive range (super stretchy), but not enough active control. So in yoga, as soon as I reach my limit of *active* range, something ELSE has to do the work to get me into those wide abduction postures.

Now, WHY do we need to give a shit about this? 🤨

👉🏻Without active control over our stretchiness, we are basically lacking some of the body's important emergency safety features.👈🏻

Like, we wouldn't drive a car without brakes. We also wouldn't feel great about boarding a plane flown by a blindfolded pilot.

But when we get ourselves into really stretchy poses without the ability to actively control that range of motion, we ARE flying blind, and our bodies don't have the necessary information to get ourselves out of trouble if need be.

The other issue of lacking control over our range is that we can develop poor movement patterns that put a lot of strain into the parts of the body that have to constantly pitch in and help out. Remember: the body is lazy. It will use what it has to do the things you ask it to do.

So yeah. Active vs Passive. It's pretty crucial! 🙌🏻

In the next post, I'll show you one way to work on gaining more active control through your hip abduction range.

(Please note: There's a LOT that goes into hip abduction [and every other aspect of mobility training for that matter!]. The body is mother fucking complicated. What I'm showing you here is just one small piece of the magnificent movement puzzle 🤸🏻‍♀️)

Confrontation with expectation is MANIPULATION

Confrontation without compassion is ABUSE

Are you the manipulator or the abuser?

Confrontation can be an unbelievably transformative and informative event

It's only when we hold onto the results that we suffer

To take a look at how you communicate is honest and raw

This self study is called SVADHYAYA in Yoga

Be mindful of your next tendency to abuse or manipulate

Even towards yourself

You don't need a mat to practice yoga 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

What if we weren’t attached to the achievement of our practice? ...
I wrestle with this question all the time, especially as a teacher. I crave achievement and put an unreasonable amount of value on my accomplishments. Did I find enlightenment when I was able to hold Handstand? No, in fact the opposite happened. I felt Handstand wasn’t enough and wanted to learn how to take Adho Mukha Vrikshasana in Padmasana. In yoga, there is always somewhere else to go if you train yourself to think that way, and it can become relentless. ...
This photo was taken several months ago, and when the photo was taken, all I remember feeling was absolute joy in my body and in the pose. I didn’t care that I couldn’t drop into Urdhva Dhanurasana, or that my backbend wasn’t perfect, and that is why I love this photo so much. Something has shifted in my own practice since then, and I feel like I have to always take things to the “next level”, whatever that actually means.
As we are rolling into the Thanksgiving week, there is a lot of talk about gratitude and what it means to be grateful for our bodies and for where we are at in our yoga journey. But in a world where social media often dictates your earnings, and how we look in a pose matters more than how we feel, it feels harder than ever to just be grateful for where you’re at. ...
I’m only teaching Tuesday this week before Thanksgiving @bodyblissyogawest and @simply_yoga_vancouver . In class we are going to not work to find our edge, but rather work to find whatever we need to feel satisfied in our bodies and in our practice. We are all so different, and look for different things in our practices, and I want to honor that the best I can this week. So be grateful - not because you can hold Handstand, but because you choose to roll out your mat and move and breathe, and train, and experience your body and all the wonderful things it can do to you. See you tomorrow yogi friends. 🌻 #yoga #dontbeattachedtotheoutcome #honoryourbody #yogapractice #gratitude #modernyoga #rolloutyourmat

Vorrei ringraziare #yani #corrieredellasera per la collana #yogateoriaepratica e soprattutto l'autrice di questo volume sul #modernyoga
Da tempo cercavo un quadro sintetico ma esaustivo, in italiano, sullo yoga che ha gradualmente, dal XIX sec. ha conquistato l'Occidente, fino a contare due ✌🏿 milioni di praticanti solo in Italia.
Conoscevo già l'autrice Maria Angelillo per il suo valido libro 📚 sui #mandala

Thoughts fat like juicy raindrops escaping from plump clouds, exploding like missiles on the tin roof.

Journeying beneath the surface. Delving beneath the outer shell.

Discovering truth, nature, purpose.

#Yoga is NOT pretty. Just like in life you sweat, you fall, you pick yourself back up, you hurt, your awkward, and snot accidentally comes out your nose 😂
Then there's a moment where you nail a #handstand and quickly take a photo and it looks f#cking cool. You upload it to #Instagram so everyone can see how "cool" you are...
Little do they know you struggle just like everyone else, the only difference is you are constantly growing because you practice yoga. It's not pretty unlike this "cool" photo 😁😁😎😎

“Life has no particular purpose, it’s a purpose unto itself” Sadhguru... I sometimes wonder what the purpose of life is, or what this event means or that one? It’s easy to give it meaning and create something i can feel good about but I’m not sure I’m always correct, maybe it’s just my imagination? Then I wonder maybe it has no purpose? Maybe it is a purpose unto itself? WTF? Then the question that begs is - what is life asking of me? not what I’m asking of life? Am I truly living my potential? Are there lots of little clues I’m ignoring that could be so obvious if I could just see? 3 days in on our Being of Purpose Retreat, so good, not so much fun with a broken ankle, but hey, we always have handstands right 😝🧘‍♂️❤️🙏 happy Monday, rock your weeks socks off! 📸 @leeroy.t ✊️#handstand #gratitude

Open source yoga. Community and collaborative learning is so much more effective than hierarchical teaching structures. As a teacher, I find that encouraging questions always leads to beautiful insights and deeper learning for everyone, including myself. This has been proven to me time and time again in my workshops and trainings, and teaching this weekend in Vancouver, it’s beautiful to witness.
I know that I don’t have all the answers (no one does) and that actually frees me up to be more curious, to invite that curiosity for others which then creates that open source learning experience. As we continue to redefine aspects of yoga (keeping it a living tradition) this is one aspect that I feel passionate about. I don’t want to encourage dogma or guru teaching relationships. Everyone has value. Everyone’s experience matters. And when we come from that place, that’s where the magic happens ✨
