Day 4: arm balance
I can't extend my leg while flying my pigeon yet, so I'm just perching. 😆😎🐦🤘
Happy Equinox! Today was a day for glitter. Sometimes you just need a little extra sparkle. Wearing glitter in my hair and on my skin reminds makes me feel good, it's pretty, and I hope it reminds people to enjoy life. Do what you love. Have fun, and don't take yourself too seriously!
"Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself."~Abraham Joshua Heschel🙏❤️🙏
Ultimately we want to find the balance between doing what we want and need to do in life and being aware of our actions n how they impact others especially those that are close to us.🙌❤️🙌
Shanah Tovah if you are celebrating Jewish New Year today🎊✡️🎊
Your mind is an endless ocean of rolling, moving and ever changing thoughts.
Have you ever been so overwhelmed and consumed by your thoughts? Most of us have.
Experience anxiety and stress daily? Most of us do.
Beginning a meditation practice has been the single most transformative change I have made in my life. Learning to filter out the clutter in your mind brings clarity, stillness and the ability to see yourself and know yourself better.
Taking a moment each day to sit still, calm your mind and breathe deeply is one of the most simple ways we can give ourselves a break.
If you need some clarity, a break, a moment away to gain some balance then beginning meditation is something you can do and the best thing is, anyone can do it!!🙏🌿

GUYS!! Our #house is finally getting started and I'm SO excited! We've been without our own home for almost a year and a half now so we couldn't be more excited about this process. ☺️ My mother in law has been so gracious to let us live with her during this transition so I'm very thankful for that. Can't wait to show you guys the process! 💕 #projectfinalhouse#beagoddess
This seems to be the lowest height I can go and still pull myself up into a (somewhat) controlled handstand. The pulling forward action helps me facilitate the lift and "feel" I need that I don't get when trying from a static position, even with my hips equally as high. Hmmm... 🤔🤓
Dragging myself forward from downdog sometimes has helped, too. I think I'll just stick with this for awhile and build successful repetitions before I go lower. ⭐
It's all in the details... although this is considered an Advanced sequence, the principles of movement that I apply here are the same that I use from the very first sun salutation. The entry is via the point of balance - which is essentially a tuck handstand, lowering down to straight arm Lolasana (or tuck planche). The backbending is the same technique I use for drop backs - arms up/shoulders to ears/hands back as far as possible without letting the back arch. Then looking to the hands and bending from the top down - neck, upper back, mid back, lower back and then extending the hips. Glutes are on - especially to lift back up. (I will post about the Glutes relaxed myth and other movement myths more in future posts). The breath is natural and free flowing - don't suck anything in - actually the belly should visibly move in and out with each inhalation and exhalation - unless you're deliberately breathing into the chest - which is a useful technique in backbends to deepen the stretch. If you need to keep your core tight then you've most likely gone too far. Then to lift up to straight arm Lolasana: set the shoulders/engage the lats/compress knees to chest/chest to knees. Bend the elbows to bent arm Lolasana and jump back to a 'good' not collapsed Chaturanga. Depending on how I'm feeling I will approach the upward dog differently, in this case I was fully expressing coz I was feeling open from the backbend....
Moral of the post: fundamentals, fundamentals, fundamentals. It's all there from the beginning and if you build a solid foundation then this will set you on a good course for exploring more advanced postures later. Thanks for reading and watching and big thanks to all who came to our week here in Ibiza. 🙏

Day 6 of #yogiautumnjam is #malasana
QOTD: "What are three random facts about yourself?"
1) I hate it when someone touches my bellybutton. Even myself. Aaah NO! Don't do it! ❌
2) I am a night-person. I'm the most productive when it's dark. But that doesn't harmonize well with my job. Because I have to get up at 5:30 a.m. 😭 #dilemma
3) I cannot tell a joke. Either I forget the punchline or I try to explain it until it stops being funny. My "audience" is always laughing anyway- but I think it's not because of the joke 🤔
