A shot from our @109world female empowerment event in Stockholm last week! Our little family unit really flows with all sorts of fun work engagements these days🤗 Luna has done a cover shoot, three yoga retreats, two teacher trainings, an international tax meeting and more work sessions with our team than we can count. I'm not doing maternity leave the traditional way but rather incorporating her into our day-to-day as much as possible while scaling back a ton. I'm lucky to have the best husband in the world who's going with the flow and being supportive in every way possible. It's not without its challenges, working together as husband and wife, and throwing a baby in the mix makes everything magical and difficult and beautiful and unpredictable. Did you know that in Sweden paternity leave is mandatory? Pretty cool! Today @dennisfromsalad spent five hours straight with angel baby while I wrote a big chunk on my second book at home. She started taking the bottle again!! Magic!
We have an amazing retreat planned in Sweden this year. Join us in Öland in August! Yoga every day, female empowerment, workshops, and all profits go to supporting survivors of sexual abuse and rape. It's going to be an amazing weekend and all for a good cause. Click the link in my bio to snag one of the last spots!❤✨ www.109world.com @109world 📷 and 🖋 Courtesy of @yoga_girl

Ever use bridges as a tool to open up your shoulders (and stretch out your abs)? Here are a few versions to try out;
1.) If you struggle getting into the bridge, due to either lack of mobility and/or strength, elevating the hands can help achieve a modified version by reducing the load on the upper body.
2.) Bridge with both hands and feet on the floor. The goal is to push the shoulders over the top of the wrists or even better, in front of the wrists with legs straight. This example shows some room for improvement.
3.) Elevating the feet makes it easier to press the shoulders over the wrists while reducing the arch in the spine and increasing the emphasis on opening up the shoulders. Also a great way to build isometric strength while in EROM.
Give it a try and let me know how it goes!! 😊💪🤸 @cfgymnastics @crossfit @crossfittraining #cfgcoach#cfg#crossfit#cfgymnastics#gymnastics#stretch#mobility#training#bridge

FULL VIDEO ON FACEBOOK We haven't done static stretching in years, but have better mobility and strength than ever. Times have changed and it's much more practical to move through a small range of motion, than to simply hold a stretch.
A ripping or painful stretch is stressful on the body and often causes a guarding response in the tissue, and the nervous system. If is stressful or painful, it's likely that the stretch will hinder performance, and not translate to an actual lengthening of the tissue.
Remember flexibility is about having hydrated and healthy elastic tissue, which has the resilience to go in and out of motion, not stay stretched long. For this reason fascial fitness work (foam roller etc) combined with rhythmical movement, is the greatest enhancer of healthy tissue
Try out some of these and we promise you'll get better gains, plus it feels more comfortable. Always move with rhythm and within your own movement threshold (don't make super big and clunky movements.) .
Hey yoga booty boot campers! Welcome to day 1 of #yogabootybootcamp 🍑Tomorrow's pose is crescent lunge! Feel free to snap a pict OR show us how you made that booty burn! 🔥🔥🔥
For the burn, try incorporating stagnant lunges into your crescent flow by lowering and lifting that back knee. Make sure to plant that front heel into the ground to activate the front glute! Next, try tip-toe crescent lunge pulses to increase the burn! Let's do this! BAKE THOSE BUNS!! Hosts:
