How often to do you meditate? What’s your favorite position to meditate in? I easily meditate several times a day. I started doing daily meditations when I was 5 years old. I prefer lying down, sleeping yogi pose, and sitting (with mudras), in that order 😆#meditation #doyouevenmeditate #doyouevenmeditatebro #sleepingyogipose #whatsyourfavoritemeditationposition #iteachmeditation #learnhowtomeditate #mindbodyspirit #meditationovermedication

I was talking about stretching with one of my clients and I suggested she stretch more and she said she stretches daily. I asked her how long she held her stretches for and she replied between 10-30 seconds. Then she asked me how long I hold my stretches for. Haha long enough to read books or drift off to sleep after meditation. I don’t time them but 90 seconds is my quickest stretch. I hold them for as many breaths are comfortable. I either read or meditate or listen to music, depending on how mindful I’m being at the time. #fbf #yoga #yogalove #yogaeverydamnday #sleepingyogi #sleepingyogipose #sleepingyogiposeselfie #multitasking #mywirelessearphonesdied #relaxintothestretch #stretching #aflexiblebodymakesaflexiblemind #flexible #womensfitness #gymtime #studying #vegan #veganmuscle #poweredbyplants #plantpowered #ieatsmyspinach #strongandflexible

Tomorrow I will attend a commencement ceremony to celebrate earning my Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology! 🤓🎉 I’m not exactly sure what’s next for me and this uncertainty can cause me to doubt myself and the path I’m on. But what I do know is that whatever happens, this practice will be here for me. Every day. Top of my mat. 🧘‍♀️ Knowing this, I feel peace. 😌🔮

My first attempt at #dwipadasirsasana
#bothlegsbehindthehead pose which was a progress from the #yoganidrasana
#sleepingyogipose

This is a lot tougher and im still having difficulty balancing on my tail bone let alone lifting my head up..... Counting my blessings as im just officially into my 17 months of practice and i only took up yoga seriously in my mid 40s. My journey so far has been about #selfdiscovery #selfdiscipline #selflove #bodyawareness #betruetomyself #practicesafely
Much thanks to all those who has inspired, motivated, helped and guided me along my path and whom i still continue to practice with and seek their immeasurable experience and source of knowledge knowledge ❤️❤️❤️ 📷 @rahul_pankhade

Happy Pournami. 🌕
Intoxication or soma is the nature of the moon. On the full moon night, immerse yourself in the grace of the moonlight, to be inebriated with the fullness of life.
(Sadhguru)
🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕
Last day in New York before traveling on to Bermuda.
As it is Pournami it will be a rest day for me, so I thought I do a #yoganidrasana. ☺️😴
It is also the last challenge pose of #opensesame.
This bed was way too soft for me. All these pillows I always threw on the floor when going to sleep and slept without any pillow at all. 🛏️ 😋
I miss my agni hotra set. I guess I will have to watch my own fire ritual videos today. 😉🔥
Wish you all a wonderful weekend! 🤗❤️

I think this is the very first time I’m posting the #sleepingyogipose, I’ve always thought this pose is not very charismatic, that it doesn’t shoot very good and maybe I don’t like the way I look while doing it. But I absolutely love it. Tying myself that way makes me sense my energy well and binding poses come naturally to me, my arms are super long and my shoulder blades are very open, I was practically born for these poses 😂👏🏼 so, why wouldn’t I post it??

Sleeping yogi 😴 🧘‍♀️ .
.
.
The prep work that I do for this posture can be attempted by anyone. If you’re looking for a more effective way to easily move your body into a posture like this then prep work is absolutely necessary. .
.
.
In a lot of cases our bodies have adjusted to being put under stress by attempting these postures with no prep work. What I mean is that we can trick ourselves into thinking that we are relaxed because we manage the symptoms very well. We can breathe through it and have practiced to keep a calm relaxed face. This is part of the journey but it doesn’t stop there. .
.
.
If you wish to gain full access to the benefits of some of these postures while keeping the nervous system happy then it’s best to work from a place of ease as often as possible. How can you gain more ease? By prepping your muscles with some hands free repetitive movements first before taking the hands and using them to force the body into a deeper position. Oh, and patience helps too 😜

“Once was afraid
Of what has become
what has been made
What has been told ,
But if you search,
Deep within you,
Truth is certain
To be discovered too.
May your silence and your fears
May your choices and your tears
Be the strength you searched
all along.
And if one day you wake up ,
And discover yourself strong ,
Don’t be scared again my love , because that’s what you’ve been working
all this time for so long “

The sleeping yogi. And even it doesn’t look very comfortable, it is. Loved it already as a child and it’s great if you don’t have a coushion for your head - use your feet! 😉🙏🤸‍♀️

Day 79 Sleeping Yogi Pose or Yoginidrasana
.
Another one of these "What the heck?! Well that will never happen!!" postures. 😆 Our initial reaction is rarely correct about what is possible. I know for a fact that @eva.alexander worked on legs behind the head for literally years and years before coming into it comfortably. I myself don't practice it enough to do the same, yet even still I have seen a progression occur after working the hips and hamstrings through a consistent practice. Once again the pose is not the point; struggle and force cause a rebound effect on the nervous system and muscles, constricting when you need opening. I used to have the absolute worse psoas muscle cramp in my early attempts. Only after years of addressing the underlying trauma and fears through acupuncture and somatic massage therapy can I breathe more smoothly and create more peace in any eka pada sirsasana posture.
.
Find where you are in this journey and notice what arises. Usually there is an undercurrent of panic and helplessness, sometimes anger and frustration; it's all part of our vulnerability peeking through the masks we wear. Stay with yourself in the sensations and breathe 8-12 long slow exhales before coming to the other side. Be the most compassionate companion to your Self; the one you always wish you had. Let Love in all its power softly fill up that space inside you.
.
The pictures in order are: my version of the asana that day, a video of the struggle (it is real and even sped up x4 you can hear my breath change and reset), a few ways to prepare and move toward the full expression using blocks, a yoga wheel, reclined pigeon, reclined bound pigeon, legs behind the head on each side, and last video is my version of a quick sacrum reset. Let me know if you have questions or think we should work on this in class! 😉

Our student performing the "sleeping yogi pose". Sleeping yogi pose is found in the second series of Ashtanga Yoga. It aims in stretching the lower back and hamstrings.
NOTE: This is one of the challenging poses of yoga and should be performed by experienced only since it requires extreme flexibility.

Beautiful 🐪 variations everyone! 🙏🏼❤️
Day 6 of #OpenYourHipsOpenYourHeart2
🦋
Today my gorgeous co-host @blossom.yoga.and.meditation gives you #BaddhaKonasana or #Yoganidrasana
The shape of Yoganidrasana, a deep forward bend with the limbs drawn in close to the torso—stimulates pratyahara, or the deep state of peaceful relaxation that comes from withdrawing the senses.
Remember that each day feels different, for me; somedays I can't get my legs behind my head at all while other days I'm open and able to get into the pose with softness. Either way, baddha konasana is a great pose to start with if you want to work your way towards Yoganidrasana.
•
It's important to warm up with some basic Asanas like sunsals, cobra, paschimottanasana, (compass pose or one leg behind your head for Yoganidrasana) before you delve into the given Asana. Listen to your body. Yoga doesn't follow the no pain no gain motto. Be gentle with yourself, without judgment. Where YOU are in YOUR practice is perfect
We can't wait to see your variations! 🙏🏼
________________________________________________
👄 Instructions Yoganidrasana:
First lie flat on your back on the floor.
Bring both your legs over your head, bending them at the knees.
Hold your left foot with both hands, lift your head, and then gently place this leg behind the neck. Gradually ease the leg down toward the back of the right shoulder.
Now, hold your right foot with both hands. Gently pull it behind the neck and over the left foot. Keep the toes pointed.
Pull both the feet away in opposite directions, to allow them to form a pillow for your head. Lift up your shoulders, stretch your arms behind your back and lock the fingers together if it's available to you.
While your head rests on your feet, lift up your chest. Breathe slowly and calmly 20 or 30 times, or as long as you are feeling comfortable.
To release the pose, exhale and loosen the grip of your hands and legs. Straighten out your limbs and relax for a few seconds.
Repeat the pose, using the opposite limbs this time. 👇🏽continued in comments. 👇🏽

I haven't really gotten my teeth into a yoga challenge in a while, so I was excited to see this one pop up. I like the flow! Looking forward being part of this one over the next 10 days!! I was feeling too wobbly to do this on the paddleboard with @helen_yoga_bright this afternoon (though she did it beautifully)... just didn't feel like going home wet! 😂

Day 1 of #theSpiceMustFlow #yogachallenge is Vasisthavinyasa to Supta Avashtambhasana or side down vinyasa into sleeping monk's pose. 💫
With @dorjeyoga @yogisonfire
