Parsva Kukkutasana or Side Full Lotus arm balance is very far from something I’m able to do right now, but other side arm balances like side crow, Dwi Pada and Twisting Scissors are already pretty easy for me. I wanted to find something harder to work on. When I saw #reversegrasshopper pose on insta, I thought “I can do that!” But, nope. I tried it and could barely connect my thigh to my arm. It took me about a month of work to get to a couple seconds of balance, and I still can’t extend the leg straight. So, I’ve found my Goldilocks pose - not too easy, not too hard. Just the right amount of challenge for me right now.

Check in @xocloh for day 3's #SaturdayInversionFever .
Did you know that #Ardhabaddhapadmottanasana  stimulates the muladhara (root) and svadisthana (spleen or sacral) chakras. The muladhara chakra is located at the base of the coccyx and cultivates integrity and one's sense of security. The svadisthana chakra is located behind the navel and is associated with creativity. It is also called the sexual chakra as it fuels one's desire for intimacy, promoting a healthy sex life.

Hidup didunia ini.
Seperti tempat yg penuh duri.

Hati yg tidak tergerak, dan dengan demikian seseorang tidak bertindak gegabah.
Oleh karena itu, menjadi tidak tergerak, tidak ada salahnya.
Jika hati tergerak akan membuat seseorang bertindak gegabah, yg akan menyakiti tubuh dan membuat nyeri tulang, dan mengalami semua rasa sakit di dunia.

Apakah tidak akan sakit jika tidak tergerak?
Maka aku telah tertusuk duri.

This has quite literally got to be the hardest bind I have ever come across and I hope ever will 🙈 if they get harder than this then oh jeez what am I in for 🙄😂
.
I went with the pose but with just a twist as I couldn’t bind like this and I don’t have a strap either to use. I have included on slide 2 my attempts at the given pose with the bind so I have my picture to compare next year..
.
I also included what I thought was going to be an easier version so the same pose without the half lotus which I still could do 😂 and then the final picture is the only version of this pose with a bind that I can do!
.
Gotta start somewhere ain’t ya 🙊😉

Well not much difference or #progress with this pose and that would have a lot to do with my love/ hate relationship with #lotuspose. It’s still a #halflotus variation for me this year.

Checking in on my #ParsvaKukkutasana comparison after entering from tripod headstand. Today is Day 17 of #AYearOfYoga2018 and I may be rocking just a #halflotus this year, but my twist came much easier and feeling strong AF when I pushed up in to this #sidecrowvariation 👊🏻💪🏻🙏🏻 See my previous post for the full story🤕

The yoga pose is not the goal. Standing on your hands is not the destination.
.
We practice yoga to create space where we were once stuck. To shed the layers of protection we've built around our heart. To appreciate our body and become aware of the mind and the noise it creates. To make peace with who you are.
.
Come to your mat to feel; not to accomplish.

Today's pose is  #lotuspose in #sidecrow .
This is still a challenge for me...
.
Three years ago I joined this challenge. Last year I decided to shift my focus to on longer holds and building strength.

This year I was able to get to #halflotus. Still a work progress. One breath at a time.🍾 🙏

"We shall not cease from exploration 
And the end of all our exploring 
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover 
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the Apple tree" .
("Little Gidding, " Four Quartets, 1943") .

#lotuspose is one of those poses that has been an ongoing struggle.. so any chance I get to throw a #lotus / #halflotus in my practice I’ll take it, just so I have another opportunity to stretch my hips out and get them more familiar with how this should feel.
This #sideplank variation is one I am DETERMINED to get! One day I am going to be able to reach my foot with my hand! 👍🏼

January 16, 2018 👣 Day 16/365: One of the places I go to find inspiration is here. On my mat with one of my yoga books. Practicing, exploring and simply just being curious about the way my body works and moves. Sometimes my body won’t move. Or work 🙈😩😱
I still have a looong way to go in terms of flexibility and some of those mad backbends really challenge me 😬 #365daysofgratitude #inspiration #asanas #backbend #benddontbreak #yogamat #liformemat #yogateacher #halflotus

Day 6 of #ayearofyoga2018 💟😊 is this attempted #marichyasana 🤔🔄
.
.
Binding any asana in #halflotus is -- well -- impossible on most days. Actually any version of #lotuspose is! I obviously bound this, so I didn't pay too much attention to the direction that my upper body turned into. I was happy as it was! #minibreakthrough 🤣

Thank you, Carmen @cyogalab -- you are concentrated awesomeness and pure inspiration -- online as well as in real life 🙏💟

Here’s a total beginner’s look at my first goal pose - half lotus or Ardha Padmasana. Note this this is NOT how the pose should look ha. This is just to show y’all where I’m starting. As y’all know one of my New Year’s resolutions has been to practice yoga. I used to do yoga daily but gave it up to lift for about 2ish years. So I lost all flexibility that I had worked so hard to get. I mean I wouldn’t even stretch for months at a time which makes about zero sense. I just wanted to be open about being a beginner again and being okay with it. Yoga is for everyone, especially people with zero flexibility, haha.
•
So I began January starting all of my yoga in easy pose, but recently I decided I’d like to conquer full lotus. The biggest reason is because I have a lot of knee problems that I believe stems from needing to stretch my knees and hips. This pose stretches my knees, thighs, hips and especially my ankles (which you can see by my toes not wanting to relax into the position.)
•
Anyway, I try to warm up into this position by rocking back and forth in easy pose, then taking turns putting one foot over the other thigh while my opposite leg is straight just to open up my hips. You can also put a yoga block or rolled up towel under your knee for more support. Another great way to work on this pose is to sit in a chair and put one foot on the opposite thigh while leaving your other foot planted on the ground. I would definitely say that you shouldn’t rush into this pose. Sometimes I’m so tight (esp in mornings) that I just decide to stay in easy pose or perfect pose and not push it.
•
So here’s my first look at one of my yoga goals! I’ll update on how it’s going soon, and hopefully next time, I’ll be able to sit comfortably in half! Then after that, on to full lotus! Namaste, friends.

"APPLY WITHIN

You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world -
And I told you to
First apply within,
To discover the world
within you.

You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars -
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars
You put yourself
Through."

Basking in the 55 degree weather a few days ago after being frozen for a week. Giving ultimate thanks to Mother Ocean and the Sun for their life source 🌊🌞🙏🏻

A local topic here lately has been offshore drilling, after President Trump's executive order to allow offshore drilling in the mid and south Atlantic. I grew up in North Florida and was in high school during the BP Crisis of 2008 and am absolutely terrified of an oil spill happening off the shores of this sandbar. The community here is strong and we will not let this happen without a fight.

This spot reminds me of open hands of acceptance. Nature has open hands that can be welcoming and peaceful. I am thankful for this peaceful place as it helps me have a fresh start to the week to come. I am thankful for fresh air and the city I live in. It has friendly places like this park to remind me why I am thankful for the life I have.

Ooh I struggled with this one more than I thought I would. Turns out I really round my back rather than lengthen my spine to fold further 😖. Nobody wants to see that. So I went for a walk had a little think and whipped this half lotus #forwardfold out for day 7 of #gracefullystrongyogis3 when I got home. 🧘🏻‍♀️

Just wanted to share even when getting the perfect picture of the perfect pose, the path towards perfection is...not so perfect 😜 and that's ok. If your too afraid to try you will never know what you can accomplish, and if you fall do it joyfully, lovingly, not beat yourself up, just keep trying, maybe eventually you get it, maybe not, but the point is to never give up, and enjoy every moment of the journey 🙏

Hi my name is Laila, and in my spare time I like to do yoga and be an extra for Aslan the lion on Chronicles of Narnia 😂
All hair jokes aside, do any of you yogis ever see badass boss yogis on ig who make stuff look so simple that just... isn’t 😕
Well, for me, it’s lotus.  It seems so simple but I just can’t get there. I literally see these amazing yogis who can get into lotus while they are in a handstand - it’s amazing! So I’ve been working on stretching and trying it every single day. I’m doing lizard pose here and then working for now on just half lotus. My left leg cooperates, but not my right.  Oh well, someday I’ll get into full lotus ✌🏻 just not today 🤷‍♀️

I first fell in love with yoga in an #ashtangayoga class. I still love ashtanga and try to practice it as much as possible. Ardha Baddha Padmottanasana (Standing bound half lotus)  #lotuspose #halflotus

You know what’s really, powerfully sexy? A sense of humor. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Hips to grab on to. Openness. Confidence. Humility. Appetite. Intuition. … Smart-ass comebacks. Presence. A quick wit. Dirty jokes told by an innocent-looking lady. … A storyteller. A genius. A doctor. A new mother. A woman who realizes how beautiful she is. -Courtney E. Martin

Today I decided to play with #pinchamayurasana shapes. Pincha has become a pose I’m comfortable with so I could focus on the consistency, lengthening the hold and play with shapes shifting . I saw the #halflotus pincha in my awesome yoga sister @linachristianto post and wanted to try.  I also practiced #vrschikasana and #fulllotus , tried to deepen the poses.
I dedicate this pincha to #monnthursbackbend with awesome crews:

I’ve been standing like this for as long as I can remember. Everyone has a quirk 🙈This is just one of my many lol. #dishes #necessaryevil #flamigo #halflotus #yoga
I had one of those funny days where I struggled quite a bit during my asana practice, but I had a very deep savasana.
My blood pressure kept dropping, which makes balancing quite difficult.  But practice is a lot like life and there are ebbs and flows. Sometimes I’m focused and centered, other times I’m all over the place. 
I’m 100% ok with that! 👍🙌😁☺️

@kylevonrebarf took this beautiful photo (seriously, those angles, and lines, and the shadow! ...and the thing I’m doing here is pretty cool too if I do say so myself 😉), and the first thing I noticed about it was that my top foot is oversupinating (i.e., a wee bit askew). WTF, brain? 😂 Like who even cares? Would anyone have noticed if I hadn’t just pointed it out? And if so, what difference would it have made? That initial reaction made me realize that I can get so stuck in wanting the photos that I share to be “perfect,” that I miss out on sharing some pretty cool stuff. I want to stop doing that. #fuckperfectionism #handstand #halflotus #yogaart #lovethisphoto

Day 17 of the #YogiAssignment is ignorance, or avidya. 😕❔ Saying "I don't know" usually doesn't bother me. I love and accept that I don't know everything and that I will never even come close to it. And that is the beauty to this world. THERE IS JUST SO MUCH OUT THERE TO DISCOVER. 🐙🍃🌍 If anything, I usually lean towards the mentality of "ehh, what do I know?" Of course, there are things I readily accept as the truth. So for today, I will practice checking in with myself and how I perceive the world based on my beliefs. ✔

What a deep assignment for a cold friday night 😆

#savouringjanuary2018 and #day11 is #thoughts and I have found that meditation is the best remedy for overthinking. The brain thinks from the moment we wake up until the moment we close our eyes. Most thoughts are random, some of them positive and some of them negative. Just because you thought them doesn't make them true. Meditation allows you to step back from your thoughts and takes away the emotion. Thoughts are free to come and go making you less likely to ruminate on them.

Anyone else into meditating? I fell off the wagon over the Christmas period but am trying to get back into daily practice. How do you fit meditation around your busy life?

Days 6-9 of #AYearOfYoga2018 with @cyogalab  Last week got busy so the challenge was put on pause, but I’m all caught up today!
Day 6️⃣ #MarichyasanaD is obviously still a work in progress for me. I can’t even hold the #halflotus on the right side.  Day 7️⃣ #Hanumanasana has come a long way in one year!  Day 8️⃣ #UrdvhaDanurasana My shoulders are opening nicely, as is my thoracic spine. Now I need to focus on my lumbar spine.  Day 9️⃣ #Samakonasana variant in #AdhoMukhaVrksasana
