A compilation of my fav hip exercises to help increase mobility, strength and flexibility. Great for warm up or cool down! If you're a martial artist and have tight hips, add these to your daily arsenal and let me know how your hips are feeling after a few weeks ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
.
1) Hip rotations with hamstring stretch using strap/belt. Start with small circles and gradually grow to your max, then change direction and slowly decrease circle size. When you reach stillness begin to draw the leg toward you, you can bend the knee if you're super tight in your hamstrings. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ
.
2) Hip rotations using hands to guide. Rest hands on knees, guide knees away from body, then apart and begin to draw back towards body and close knees. Do several rotations and then change direction. Move slowly with your breath. ๐Ÿ˜Š
.
3) Happy baby pose. Soles of feet face ceiling, knees head towards shoulders (aiming to open through hips). Look for long spine along the floor. If hips are tight hold on behind your knees or grab ankles. ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿผ
.
4) Goddess pose/ wide squat. Elongate spine, engage core. Keep hips low, try rocking from side to side, up and down. Experiment with lifting one heel from the floor and leaning toward that hip. Awesome for finding space through hips and strengthening simultaneously. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
.
5) Skandasana/ side lunge. Try to keep heel on the floor or work towards that. Be kind to the knees, don't go so deep if they're sensitive. I'll move in and out for a while and then pause on each side for up to a minute. Awesome for flexibility in hips and hamstrings. ๐Ÿ˜‡
.
6) Malasana/ deep squat. Aiming for hips low, long spine (life your heart), heels on floor if you can. Start by gently guiding one knee away and allow the heel to lift from the floor. Rock from side to side (skip if too much for knees) and then settle into the squat. Good for low back tension too. โญ๏ธ

Happy Friday fam! ๐Ÿ’œ
.
I love how interconnected Tkd and yoga are for me. A lot of the philosophies overlap and intertwine, they compliment each other in so many ways and not necessarily just the physical aspect of strength and flexibility. ๐Ÿ’œ
.
COURTESY (YE UI) - the first of the five tenets of taekwondo. We can show people courtesy anywhere, anytime, not just inside the dojang. I believe showing people courtesy is one of the simplest forms of respect. Using your manners, asking for things with kindness, respecting people's boundaries and opinions even if you don't agree are a few ways we can be courteous to each other. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ
.
Clearly the first tenet is something we can bring into our yoga and our daily lives. I look forward to sharing about the remaining four Tkd tenets over the next while. What does courtesy mean to you? How do you show courtesy to yourself, how do you show it to others? ๐Ÿค”
.
I would love to know! โค๏ธ

How I felt about today. Face plant, hide behind my hair kind of a day. ๐Ÿ˜ถ
.
On a side note, this was my first time getting into fallen angel pose! My bottom foot bugs me so much, why didn't I point my toes?! Almost didn't post because of that but that's a shit reason to not post a new achievement, so here it is, in all my imperfect glory. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

Omg you guys, Four years married today! Eight years together..๐Ÿ˜ณ
.
I'd love to tell you I married my soul mate but I don't believe in that shit haha. I'd love to say that every day I fall more in love with my husband and that every day is a blessing and we are this amazing perfect couple blah blah blah.. But that would be a lie because perfect doesn't exist and we are real people. ๐Ÿ‘ซ
.
I'm lucky that I married by best friend who truly gets me and I can be myself with him 100%. I'm grateful to have the love and unconditional support of SJB to follow my dreams and be happy. I love his family as my own. We have three fur babies together and he is the best fur-dad I know. ๐Ÿ˜ป
.
We've had a rough time this past year but our love for each other and the commitment we made in front of our closest family and friends on 21/09/13 keep us going through the hard times. It's always important to put in work on yourself so you can give your relationships (not necessarily de facto, friendships too) the love and attention the deserve. ๐Ÿ’œ
.
We celebrated yesterday by taking the day off to go to Hanmer Springs for a hot stone massage and a soak in the thermal pools. It was serene and just what we needed. โ˜บ๏ธ
.
Hope you're all having a fab day! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Bit of a throwback pic to when I had free evenings and would go practice my poomsae on the beach. ๐ŸŒ…

A while back I began speaking of the five tenets of taekwondo. I talked about the first one - courtesy and what it means to me. This brings me to the second tenet, Integrity (Yom Chi). โœจ

To me integrity is being true to yourself. Having an inner knowing of who you are, what you value and a deep trust of yourself to know what is right for you. I believe part of this is accepting that not everyone we meet will like us or agree with our thoughts, opinions and values, and thatโ€™s ok! Staying true to you in spite of this and not being a dick to the people who arenโ€™t with you on certain topics/levels/life is what integrity means to me. ๐Ÿ˜Œ
.
I would love it if you share with me what integrity means to you! ๐Ÿค—
.
I hope everyone is having a nice week! โŒโญ•๏ธ

This is Octavia @octaviatkd540_ not only does she have a kickass name, sheโ€™s a kickass human being! ๐Ÿ’œ

Octavia is a first dan black belt and has some mad tricking skills! Iโ€™ve been following her for around 2 years now and she just keeps raising the bar with her strength and flexibility. ๐Ÿฅ‹

One of her goals is to make it into the U.S poomsae team, girl I cannot wait to see you achieve that dream! ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Thanks @octaviatkd540_ for inspiring me to keep training and for being an awesome role model to other martial artists out there, keep doing you! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Iโ€™ve decided to start sharing about people I follow that I find inspirational as a bit of a Wednesday thing.โ˜บ๏ธ
.
First up the lovely A.D.โค๏ธ
.
@drazcula has found pole as an awesome way to express herself, learn new skills and get a killer workout in one! She has been on a steady lifestyle overhaul for the last 3 years. A combo of clean eating (but still treat yo self) and exercise, also the women loves to meal prep! And my god does it show, flick across for an awesome progress shot. ๐Ÿ˜ณ
.
A.D also works full time running the mental health unit at a big Sydney hospital, is a trained psychotherapist AND has just handed in her thesis for her masters degree (she has several degrees). I honestly donโ€™t know how you do it all, I bow down!
๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
.
Itโ€™s been so cool watching you become a stronger, fitter and healthier you @drazcula ! โญ๏ธ
.
I love seeing people that are passionate about their thing! If you havenโ€™t found the thing that makes youโ€™re heart burst with joy, keep looking, itโ€™s out there. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

I love how interconnected Tkd and yoga are for me. A lot of the philosophies overlap and intertwine, they compliment each other in so many ways and not necessarily just the physical aspect of strength and flexibility. ๐Ÿ’œ
.
COURTESY (YE UI) - the first of the five tenets of taekwondo. We can show people courtesy anywhere, anytime, not just inside the dojang. I believe showing people courtesy is one of the simplest forms of respect. Using your manners, asking for things with kindness, respecting people's boundaries and opinions even if you don't agree are a few ways we can be courteous to each other. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ
.
Clearly the first tenet is something we can bring into our yoga and our daily lives. I look forward to sharing about the remaining four Tkd tenets over the next while. What does courtesy mean to you? How do you show courtesy to yourself, how do you show it to others? ๐Ÿค”

I would love to know! โค๏ธ

How good is this long weekend? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ
What have you been up to ? 
Today I went and did a hike. It was maybe 10 levels harder than I wanted and planned but I did it ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’ช
I was planning to turn around and walk back down because I was tired, sore and my mind was tricking me to give up. 
For those that don't know. The Yoga-Hikes started because I cannot hike ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ or do cardio ๐Ÿ˜ 
I struggle with that sort of training and today I felt extremely challenge, but I did it and my mantra was : I NEVER EVER GIVE UP. And I didn't it. 
It was satisfying finishing after feeling like crying half way there. 
Also I've learnt that I rather hike with my tribe! โ˜๏ธ So keep ya eyes open because our third hike is coming.  I need you all because yoging together is better but is the same for hiking.  I knew that if I had you all there I would of done it without noticing that I was doing it ๐Ÿ˜‚ 
Also for the first time in 3 years I won't be teaching on Labour weekend. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ I know right? big deal! but I decided to energize for the upcoming weeks because we have lots coming ! 
I will be back on Tuesday ๐Ÿค— 
at Ara Institute 6pm or 715pm ๐Ÿ˜™ 
Enjoy the sunshine!

Best way to kick off Mental Health Awareness Week ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™
We've ticked off two steps of wellbeing. 
Connect + Be Active ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘Š Today we connected to others, while yoging together at the same time we connected to ourselves. 
We had amazing food all together. Meeting new people and catching up with our old friends ๐Ÿค— 
Mental Health Awareness menu is followed by Lunch time class 12-1 pm at Ara Institute.  Open to ANYONE! 
Over the last 13 months I have learnt that I do not need to deal with pain by myself. That I can reach out for my friends and that I can be there for them too. I've learnt that I am not alone when I feel overwhelmed.  Running a social enterprise is my passion, working with youth and the community is what feeds my soul however there are times that this can be stressful, but knowing that I have a beautiful support network makes it all easier. 
Yogis and non yogis. You are not alone and your stress or anxiety does not define you. 
Let's start the conversation. 
Sending love to you all! 
See you at 12pm

๐Ÿ˜ Yogi love โค
๐Ÿ’™Troy and Clo ๐Ÿ’œ 
The beautiful faces behind @bacon_brothers_co 
I have a special love for these two. Apart from being extremely kind and incredible people they are real. 
I was talking to a good friend last night about that. About being real. Showing our flaws and embrace them, instead of pretending. 
Troy and Clo are committed to invest in their love making sure they do something for themselves everyday. 
It is hard when these kids work 100000 hours a week, but so far so good! Yoga with me is part of their routine, even when tired they show up, and to support each other they hold each other, like in the photo.
They are practicing kindness to each other and trying really hard to balance work and life, I think they do awesome, they probably don't give enough credit to each other. 
Clo and Troy are one of my favourite couples ever! Their love is so fresh and funny, they are real to each other and to anyone on their path. I have learnt so much from them already. This is the kind of love I seek for, the real one, the raw one, the kind one. No pretending, allowing themselves to be who they truly are. It is what I stand by in any relationship, romantic, friendship even when it comes to business.
Thank you for teaching me so much while I am teaching you. 
Thank you for your support and unconditional friendship and love.
Love you both so much! 
So much love ๐Ÿ˜ of the good one! 
YBK ๐Ÿ˜™ 
PS: Make sure that the ones that you love know it today! Friends, partners, family... and if you think that you already told them. Remind them! ๐Ÿ™

๐Ÿ˜ Yogi love โค ๐Ÿ’™Troy and Clo ๐Ÿ’œ The beautiful faces behind @bacon_brothers_co I have a special love for these two. Apart from being extremely kind and incredible people they are real. I was talking to a good friend last night about that. About being real. Showing our flaws and embrace them, instead of pretending. Troy and Clo are committed to invest in their love making sure they do something for themselves everyday. It is hard when these kids work 100000 hours a week, but so far so good! Yoga with me is part of their routine, even when tired they show up, and to support each other they hold each other, like in the photo. They are practicing kindness to each other and trying really hard to balance work and life, I think they do awesome, they probably don't give enough credit to each other.

Omg you guys, Four years married today! Eight years together..๐Ÿ˜ณ
.
I'd love to tell you I married my soul mate but I don't believe in that shit haha. I'd love to say that every day I fall more in love with my husband and that every day is a blessing and we are this amazing perfect couple blah blah blah.. But that would be a lie because perfect doesn't exist and we are real people. ๐Ÿ‘ซ
.
I'm lucky that I married by best friend who truly gets me and I can be myself with him 100%. I'm grateful to have the love and unconditional support of SJB to follow my dreams and be happy. I love his family as my own. We have three fur babies together and he is the best fur-dad I know. ๐Ÿ˜ป
.
We've had a rough time this past year but our love for each other and the commitment we made in front of our closest family and friends on 21/09/13 keep us going through the hard times. It's always important to put in work on yourself so you can give your relationships (not necessarily de facto, friendships too) the love and attention the deserve. ๐Ÿ’œ
.
We celebrated yesterday by taking the day off to go to Hanmer Springs for a hot stone massage and a soak in the thermal pools. It was serene and just what we needed. โ˜บ๏ธ
.
Hope you're all having a fab day! ๐Ÿ˜˜

This time last year I was preparing for my big trip to Bali to do my yoga teacher training. I was shitting my pants over it and thought about not going often. The day before I left I was so terrified I couldn't stop crying! It's so funny to me now because that trip was such a pivotal point of my life and everything has changed since I got back ๐Ÿฆ‹
.
Almost a year on from Bali and I'm living the life I imagined over four years ago. I get to share my passion with others and connect with so many different people from all walks of life. I feel so lucky to be able to do that ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
.
Sometimes I feel like I'm flailing about madly and nothing is moving or changing because I keep moving my goal posts. We often achieve a goal and then quickly move onto the next one without taking the time to appreciate our achievement. Then it feels like we aren't getting anywhere.. we feel bogged down and can lose our momentum. When I stop and actually see just how far I've come it makes me not only happy and content but also motivated and excited for the future. Make sure you take a moment to celebrate your achievements today, no matter how small ๐Ÿ˜Š

I'm getting better at accepting myself as I am, at not judging or comparing myself to others, worrying less, trusting more.. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ As each day passes it becomes more real so I might as well share with you now that I am officially leaving my job to do Bella Mente full time! I have spent the last ten years or so working in kitchens cooking, sweating and having hair that smells like bacon. I'm really looking forward to being able to have nicely manicured fingers again! I'm nervous as fuck to go out on my own but sooo excited to be my own boss, carve my own path and do what I love! Keep chasing your dreams peeps, take a leap of faith and see what happens! โœจ๐Ÿ˜โœจ

Holy crap I turned 30 today!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ 
In honour of my b'day I thought I would share a couple of hilarious photos from my childhood (scroll across)! The second photo, circa 1987, six months old. No I'm not wearing a wig, that was my real hair, my mum had to start cutting it at three months because it was growing over my eyes!! The last photo was from 1990 rocking a serious 90s power fringe (thanks mum). Also for fun I'm going to share ten random facts about myself ๐Ÿ˜‹. .
๐ŸŽ‚I can count to ten and say basic greetings etc in five languages - English, Maori, Korean, French and Thai. But I am only fluent in English.
๐ŸŽ‚Rain on the roof is my favourite sound.
๐ŸŽ‚My death row last meal would be lasagna with a side of french fries.
๐ŸŽ‚I cry every time I watch The Simpsons movie, twice! Once when Marge leaves Homer and again when they make up.
๐ŸŽ‚I am possibly Hugh Grants biggest anti-fan. I really can't stand that guy! ๐Ÿ˜‚
๐ŸŽ‚I pestered my mum into taking me to a martial arts class after watching The Karate Kid in the early 2000s. That's how I got started in Taekwondo.
๐ŸŽ‚I did my degree in Biological Sciences with an endorsement in ecology. I'm passionate about conservation biology and evolutionary biology.
๐ŸŽ‚I was a very keen scuba diver and had just got my license only to find out I have an ear condition that prevents me from doing it anymore - that's how I found SUP Yoga!
๐ŸŽ‚I hardly drink alcohol at all. Not for health reasons although that's a plus - There is such a huge drinking culture in NZ that often, rather than explain myself, I pretend to drink by sitting on one beer for ages or disguising soda as booze to avoid all the questions and peer pressure.
๐ŸŽ‚My celebrity crush is and always will be Leonardo DiCaprio, dad bod and all ๐Ÿ’œ

Thanks to those who read this whole post! Also thank you and welcome to my new friends! If you want to share some random facts about yourself tag me in the post, I would love to learn about you guys! ๐Ÿ’š .
