Notice the inhale. Notice the exhale. ✖️If your mind begins to wander, bring your attention back onto the breath and continue on through the poses ✖️Practice this mindful breathing during every pose in the series . ☝🏼REMEMBER: 💁🏼‍♀️It’s normal for our minds to wander, that’s why we practice! 🙌🏼Give yourself space to truly experience the pose. Let go of any expectations you may have about how things “should” look or “should” feel 🤔Be an observer. Notice where the mind goes without judgement 🙆🏼‍♀️This type of exercise isn’t about perfection, but instead it’s about being present! . 🧘🏼‍♀️Not only with this type of practice work your physical body 🔥 but paying attention to your breath helps you become more mindful! 🧠 Being mindful is a skill to practice, just like the poses! . . 💖If you like this practice, be sure to let me know in the COMMENTS!

Must read and watch by @healingmotions 👇 Happy thanksgiving or holidays here from us to you! Thanks for sharing @healingmotions . . With the holidays around the corner this will help 1) clear blocked energy 2) detox your organs 3) get your digestion “moving” 4) strengthen the process of digestion 5) help with discomfort. Make sure you drink plenty of water after doing this! For best results, do this first thing in the morning, although it is beneficial at any time 🙏🏻❤️🌊 . . Malasana (yoga squat): this is the humans natural resting position and puts the digestive tract in its optimal configuration. If this is hard for you, [not enough space, visit @healingmotions for full caption] . . Cat Cow: inhale arch, look at the sky, exhale round, look at the naval. Try to articulate your spine one vertebrae at a time and exaggerate the end positions. 20x This really gets everything including the energy moving . . Thread the needle: time to detox and move what is stuck, physically and energetically! Inhale arm up, exhale arm through. Option to bind here if you feel comfortable. 15-120 sec both sides . . Lions Pose: this is not a backbends session so no need to get too deep here (unless you want to!) - 10-60 sec, looking at back foot. Use a strap (or belt) if you can’t reach the foot . . Supine twist: breathe deep for 1-5 min, grounding opposite shoulder. . . Stomach churning pose: this will “move everything along”, strengthen your digestion (and core), detox your system, and get 🔥 your six pack 🤣 [not enough space, visit @healingmotions for full] . . Happy baby: 1-2 min. Shoulders back, push feet up into hands (you should feel your sacrum move closer to the floor) . . Apanasana (literally translates to “wind relieving pose”): must I explain why this is in here? 🤣2-4 min . . Child’s pose: 30-90 sec to integrate the practice. Melt into the floor . . For a list of essential oils and supplements I ingest shoot me a DM 🙏🏻 . . Share this with someone who could benefit so we can spread the healing and save it so you remember to do it as well 🙏🏻❤️🌊

Make sure you share this with someone that could benefit and save it for your personal practice! Thanks for sharing @yogavered #inflexibleyogis ・・・ I was going through some old photos and saw this one. It was my first pregnancy, I had no idea what was about to come, and I was sure that I was going to get my body back soon. It wasn’t so.. it took a long time for me to recover from the C section. And in 3 years we had 3 little girls, we are blessed and I’m truly grateful for it. After I had Maya, my little one, I told Almog I needed a change, didn’t know exactly what, but I did know I needed to find myself again, It’s like somewhere along the way I got a little lost. Yoga made me meet with myself again, to love myself. It made me more aware to the things I love and the things I don’t. And except everything for what it is with peace of mind. It made me feel complete. Be one.

Make sure you share this with someone that could benefit and save it for your personal practice! Thanks for sharing @yogamand #inflexibleyogis ・・・ 🔺🔺🔺 Today’s “tutorial” is not so much a How To then a Behind the Scenes of Triangle Pose. I am obsessed with triangles, the architect’s strongest polygon. It holds the character of strength, structure and stability. Right angles hold up, equilateral triangles emulate strength. . This pose belongs to the Warrior family. As a warrior is couragous and skillful, he is also determined and has a lot of willpower. In your physical practice you manipulate the back leg to be your anchor, stabilizing the whole posture. Your front leg is your rudder & leads you through the stormy sea. Your lower body is your stability, your foundation to hold ground. Your upper body is your ability. In your spiritual practice you are internally fighting for liberation and vision. . ▶️ Back leg is straight, foot is turned out 45° ▶️ Heels down, pinky edge finds the mat. Find the ball of your big toe ▶️ inhale, lift your chest, turn your rib cage up ▶️ both arms are straight & perpendicular to the mat . 😍use a wall for leverage and measurement to find your plumb line. Place your feet a feet width distance away from the wall (depends a bit on your bum). ❗️Never compromise a pose for flexibility. If your hamstrings are not ready yet BEND your front leg as much as you need to. Personally I don't like to use a block here. I like to have options. If you want your triangle to evolve start at the bottom. No need to be stubborn here 😉.. . Anything but a determined warrior aka common habits 📍Back leg is not engaged, the outer corner of the foot loses the contact, arch collapses 📍front foot collapses, front knee point inwards, closing inner groin 📍hips are not centered 📍upper body is carrying all the burden hence it is not able to turn . 🔥Flip your bottom hand 180° to refine & reorganise your collarbones which frames up the lungs. . Let me know if this is of help for you

Thanks for sharing @yogavered #inflexibleyogis ・・・ Well I wasn’t that far from the floor 3 years ago.. but it felt like it will never happen. I remember the first time I was able to feel the floor in a split, it was unbelievable, even as a teenager when I went to dancing classes I wasn’t able to do a full split. I believe that the secret is daily practice, the day I started my daily home practice (3 years ago) was the day I started to notice the change.

While I practiced my handstands this morning, I thought to myself; "why not to share with you what I did to gain confidence to do a handstand away from the wall." These are two of my favorite partner handstand practices. Grab a partner and go ahead try it out! . Things to keep in mind: ⭐ Belly button toward your spine. Great exercise for that: lie down on the floor. Extend the arms in front of you (like you're doing a handstand) suck your belly in and up so it won't be touching the floor. Think about vacuuming your stomach. ⭐ Shoulders over wrists. (Warmup your shoulders before if you have tight shoulders) ⭐Hips over shoulders. ⭐Breathe freely! Don't ever hold your breath. . Enjoy playing around 😁🙏 . LMK if you have any questions below 👇💋
