My spirit animal - sloth! 😅
.
I have like ZERO explosive power, which is perfectly fine when it comes to yoga (gives me plenty of time to marinate during slow transitions 😋). However, it's not so fun when it comes to other disciplines... 😔 My goal is to become a little more dynamic. If you know that you could (1) either point me towards some good excercises, or (2) recommend a global online instructor (on @alo.moves for example) your advice and help would be so very much appreciated! ❤

Mid October and suddenly, just like that, the summer came back! I 😊🌞 I've spent most of today outdoors - climbing, and when I got back home I was so tired, I decided to skip my yoga practice. I'm pretty sure I will regret that decision tomorrow... .
This video is from yesterday. I absolutely love this sequence, and think it's genius (all cred for it goes to Meghan Currie). Favourite transition is probably the sloooooowwww transition from #airplanepose to #warrior1 If you try it, tag me! ❤

Mmmmm!!! This felt sooo yummy! 🤗😋 I've uploaded the full sequence on IGTV in case someone wants to give this a try. Move slow with control and engage the core throughout the full sequence. Keep them legs bent in boat pose if it's needed. No, this won't give you a six-pack, but hopefully less back pain! .
.
I realise the postures and sequences I'm posting today are less advanced compared to what I used to post a few years ago. Back then it was all about the peak poses. Today it's all about sensation. Maybe I am eventually growing up...?🤔😄

I’m so excited to announce I’m proud ambassador of @sjalskarlek 📿💫 The necklace I’m wearing in this pic is called 'Raw Truth', and the name of the necklace is supposed to work as a reminder that we are able to live our lives in purest truth. We all need that reminder sometimes, right? It’s easy to get caught up in a lifestyle driven by money, labels and consumption.

Speaking my truth. One of the best things I’ve done during the last years is to become 100% #plantbased 🌱. The choice became so easy once I simply decided to stop denying the cruelty of the meat-, egg- and dairy industry, and also how bad these industries are for the environment. I’ve transferred slowly, started to exclude meat to begin with approximately 5 years ago, then I dropped the dairy products, and finally the eggs. I’ve been #vegan for maybe a year now. I don’t even consider it a sacrifice anymore. There are so many amazing plant based substitutes available nowadays! I don’t believe in violence, and I feel very strong against the way humans treat animals just to get animal protein on our plates. We don't need violence to fill our tummies. 🙌 Let's face it, these industries are not ethical - even an animal that was lucky enough to grow up at a small farm, that animals’ life will stop at a slaughter house due to the regulations we have in Sweden. 💔 I've made an active choice not to support any of this! 🤚, I rather spend my money on all the awesome plant based substitutes out there! ❤ .

Monday #mantra Nothing is impossible! .
We belong to that percentage of the global population who won the lottery and were born into a life that can be considered a gift. We have the possibility to make choices! Our capabilities are often restricted by our own mind setting boundaries, but in fact we are capable of so much more! .

This was fun! Go with control and repeat as many times as you possibly can. I did this sequence as a warm-up prior to my yoga practice.
Happy Sunday! ❤

Hi there! ❤ Weekend is finally here, which implies plenty of time for yoga! 🧘‍♀️
Who said #yogablocks are only for beginners? I think I use my blocks more frequently today, compared to 5 years ago when I was new to yoga. I even have a pair of yoga blocks in my climbing bag! 🧗‍♀️
.
Sharing one of my favourite block sequences. Plug the leg into its hip socket and engage the core while moving the leg from deep within the core. Sure you can manage this flow without the blocks, but that requires so much more hamstring flexibility.
Happy Saturday!!! 🙌

#NIRVANA 🧘‍♀️

First real yoga practice for over a week. I've been in Paris this week. It has been crazy long working days, but at the same time fun and rewarding. My body has been complaining though, by backpain and ache in them ribs (weird, I know! 😅). Felt sooo good to practice #backbends today!
Wish you all a wonderful Saturday! ❤

THIGHT SHOULDERS & FOREARMS?
IF YES, TRY THESE EXCERCISES:
.
👉 From squat put one hand on lower back, and elbow on the inside of the knee. Lift the chest and push elbow and knee towards each other. Hold and breath. Repeat on the other side. Your #lats will 🙏 you!
👉 #DownwardfacingDog on blocks (or a pile of books) Shoulders away from the ears, press palms into the blocks while you push sitbones towards the sky to find length throughout the backside. (Bend knees if hammies are tight.)
👉 Place forearm flat in front of you, palm up. Grab hold on the fingers and fold them towards the wrist. "Lock" with the other hand. Straighten the arm and rotate the inside of the elbow from pointing straight forward to rotating it inwards. Repeat multiple times on both sides. (cred for this stretch goes to Daniel Rama) .

Yeyy, we made it halfway through this working week!!! ✌
.
I've got a confession to make. Sometimes I get so annoyed with myself. 😭 I promised myself back in July, I should practice 5 min of #handstand every day. Guess what, that didn't happen! I could claim I'm too busy with other commitments, but that's just a lame excuse. 5 minutes is nothing - there is always 5 minutes available somewhere... and I so badly want to learn the straight handstand. Maybe I'll do my 5 min of handstand in the office tomorrow. .

PUSH & PULL SATURDAY .
I came across this #pullups variations here on Instagram ( cred for this excercise goes to @venus2bfab 🙏), and wanted to give it a try. I did 10 x 3 on each side. If you are struggling with standard pull-ups, I believe this is an awesome #excercise to start with as you got support from them feet. .
.
.
When I get to decide myself what to practice, I do 50-50 pushing strength vs pulling strength. My funky shoulder has benefit a lot from incl #pulling excercises into my daily practice. Swipe to find a yummy sequence for #pushing strength. Sequence inspired by @dylanwerneryoga . .
