⠀
Can you tell the difference between the both? Do you see which side I better twist? Which fold is better than the other? Does that tell you something? I was surprised when I saw it. 🤨
⠀
❣️ They said wearing RED is optional so I pulled out one of the very few red outfits I have 🤩

Nope, there is no deeper meaning or purpose in hanging a bag on your foot. It just adds a bit weight (which makes this a bit harder than I thought 😂).
⠀
I'm quite picky when it comes to promos or sponsored posts. Simply because most of the products just don't meet my requirements. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #qualityoverquantity or #immaspoiltbrat 🙈😂
⠀
But I really couldn't resist this opportunity *Werbung, Promo, Marken verlinkt*
⠀
🎒 This bag pack by @gastonluga is simply my fave of all favs. The Pråper Bag is made with thick, strong cotton and vegan leather for durability and better water resistance. Sturdy yet elegant, and super useful features. l totally dig the metallic feet for better protection. And well, it looks cool, too. 😎
⁣⁣⠀
👖I truly love the glossy, high-shine effect of the Hi-Luxe styles by @k.deer and the flattering shape it creates. ✨ #feelinglikearockstar 🖤
⠀
🔘 It's no secret anymore but I am a prop lover. I like the elegant design and durability of the @yogaprowheel. It is absolutely an allrounder when incomes to flexibility, strength and mobility. 💪🏼
⠀
🎁 Want one of these??? I get to give a Gaston Luga bag, a Yoga Pro Wheel AND an K-DEER gift cert away THIS WEEKEND! Watch for the #HolidayGlamGiveaway I’m doing with a few of my favourite IG sisters @cece.carson @susanbishopyoga and @yogaandchaigirl starting THIS Friday! ❤️⁣ STAY TUNED!!!
⠀
⠀
I don't get paid but all products on this pic are gifted 🙏🏼.

Oh, what the what? Is it already the last day 😱? Can't believe it. Do you know what I can't believe either? I haven't posted any arm balance for this challenge and not one single crow variant 🤣.
⠀
So here it is. My late Day 10 of #BeCreativeYogi is Yogi's choice and I chose this #HopperCrow 🦗 It’s been a crazy day so I hope you forgive my super late post 🙈💚.
⠀
I can't believe it's already the last day of this sweet little fun challenge. I have a lot of catching up to do and I will. Pinky swear. If you need to catch up please do so for the next few days. We will announce winners by the end of this week 🏆.
⠀
Happy Monday everyone. Hope your week started off fantastically 💛.

For some days now I need to adjust my handstand and pincha practice. It's this time of the year. The body wants to turn inward, to gain insights, to refill the energy tanks. It's the universal pattern of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. Who am I to put up resistance? But that doesn't mean I stop practicing legs up in the air aka inversions 🤣
⠀
Day 9 of #BeCreativeYogi is any pose with legs up. I can't do regular locust pose on the mat but with the chair? OMG my back was working like crazy (in the very best way) and I truly love to practice Salabhasana this way.
⠀
When I read our pose list the first thing that popped up my mind was Legs up the Wall. So if you feel like that just do it (yes, I know. That's a slogan by a very well-known brand but it's not my fault that they used such an ordinary phrase 😂.

Now that I'm aaaaaall caught up in the gallery here my Day 8 of #BeCreativeYogi with any variation of Pyramid Pose. Thought I added an Egyptian Foot to it #WalkLikeAnEgyptian 🔺🔺🔺*totally missing an Egyptian hieroglyph emoji here* 😂.
⠀
What can I say? I'm in love with triangles of all colours 😂. For the next days we ask you to put your country or emoji flag into your caption because we are super curious where y'all are coming from. I live in 🇩🇪🇪🇺 in case you haven't seen it in my bio yet 😉.

Do you like plants? I love plants 🌿🌾🍀. I have plants in every room except for my sleeping room. But today I decided to get an artificial faux green plant for my bathroom. I killed three plants over the last 12 months 🙈 I think my bathroom is not a nice place for them 😳. Now I get some lovely but fake flower grass and lavender. Do you have fake greens in your house? Yes? No?
⠀
You're might ask yourself what this has to do with our day 7 of #BeCreativeYogi which is any Pretzel Pose. The answer: Not much. I just have nothing else to tell today 😂. A few of you might remember this KNOTTED PRETZEL. It has been a pose for the #yogihowdyoudothat3 a few months back 🤗.
⠀
On slide 2 you see a slightly different angle to see what's going on here. The vid on slide 3 is 1.5x sped up and if you check my stories you will see my own confusion about it🤪.

Don't mind my facial expression. I was busy keeping myself up 😂.
⠀
I probably misunderstood the theme for day 6 of #BeCreativeYogi with any balancing pose but when @cathymadeoyoga tagged me on a pic of @gesticulate I couldn't resist trying it. Pose is inspired by the ever so inspiring @laurasykora ❤️
⠀
Vid on "how long" I could hold this pose is 4x sped up 😜.
⠀
Thanks for the excellent discussion on my previous post. I truly loved reading your comments and opinions #BroadenYourHorizon 🙌🏼. Now I'm off to teach but will catch up on the gallery later. Can't wait 🤩.

I. am. so. sorry. for my late posting today 🙈. But here is Day 5 of #BeCreativeYogi with a Wild Thing. Did you know that this pose is one of the youngest yoga poses? Found only in the 2nd half of the last century. And it's one of the most discussed poses, too. Is this pose safe for the human body? If you google Matthew Remski’s article "Wild Thing Pose: Impossible, Injurious, Poignant" you will find many valid points leading (or causing) many other debates about the pros and cons of this pose.
⠀
Have you heard about this? Have you read the articles? What do you think?

"The Lo Shu, traditionally drawn in a 3 x 3 square chart, references a turtle’s shell, oriented as though looking at a compass and viewed as if looking from above to below to achieve a “big picture” or an overview. The #KatonahYoga maps are designed positioning self within, looking out, thus exploring potential. This vantage point allows one the experience of being present and reflecting memories, while looking up, looking down, and sensing side to side." ~ #NevinesMagic
⠀
For Day 4 of #BeCreativeYogi which is any animal pose and I chose to be a turtle aka Kurmasana or Turtoise Pose 🐢. Do you know the difference between a turtle and a tortoise? I only learned it the other week in my English class #studentforever 🤓.

Yoga Props: probably my fav side kick for my practice 🤩. Some don't like to use props because they get the feeling that they "can't do" the pose properly. For me props are like some additional bones, tendons & ligaments, muscles and thrones to help me find a sustainable form. Blocks, straps, sandbags, chairs, blankets .. all there to help me refine my posture ☺️.
⠀
For every day of this challenge I had one exactly idea. For today I had a gazillion and the challenge was to choose which one to post 😂. I share only two of them. Love the opening of my frontbody with the #FeetUpTrainer on the first, and the lateral stretch with the #yogachair on the second pic.
⠀
Day 3 of #BeCreativeYogi is the use of props or any 'objects' and I can't wait to get inspired by your posts today 🧘🏻‍♂️.

“Before dog poses were fashionable, everyone did forward folds." ~ Nevine Michaan
⠀
Happy Sunday everyone. It's Day 2 of #BeCreativeYogi is any forward fold you can think of. Think of a forward fold as folding your body in half, just like a piece of paper. The more acute the angle of your fold, the more internal heat it creates in your hip joints and in your body. A fold provides us with stability in the lower body and is working the roots of legs and kidneys.
⠀
Since I talked a lot in my post yesterday I just want to say the gallery is already so wonderful. Can't wait what you are presenting us today 🤗.
⠀
Wishing everyone a wonderful 1st advent 🕯🎄
