I really feel like the luckiest human in the world to have brothers like these. Words can’t describe. Family ❤️

Still sitting on the bench with my rotator cuff injury. Learning how to do that thing I’ve never been very good at and rest. Two and a half weeks and counting.. Meanwhile I have got myself on a rotator cuff rehab program and am so psyched to be able to get back and play on the bars when I’m ready. There can be no rush when you are building solid foundations. Stoked to see the progression between these two pics. The aim of the game is a horizontal plane with the back and depressed retracted scapula. .

‘To learn to succeed you must first learn to fail’ .
This is how I found my handstand. I have had so many failed attempts, fallen out so many times in so many different ways that I now don’t worry about falling and the result of this is 9 times out of 10 (nearly 😉) I feel controlled and don’t fall. There are obviously a few other elements to take into account. Physically: I had to work on hamstring flexibility (a lot!), core strength, hollow body holds, glute activation and scapula strength. I drilled all these things tirelessly. Mentally: I changed my attitude, standing on your hands upside down and trying to ‘find a line’ isn’t ground breaking it’s not going to change your life or anyone else’s so I stopped spinning out and took a more playful approach. With this attitude I practiced relentlessly, it felt fun, I laughed at my failed attempts, the more I fun I had the more I wanted to practice. More to go, but I’m happy for now and find immense pleasure standing upside down 🤩 .

Back in the game after a four day no training self enforcement! I have been getting a few niggles/injuries recently so opted for a de-load period as a system reset. Fatigue recovery and connective tissue recovery (ligaments, tendons etc - first tissues affected by overuse) are two of the most important factors to take into account working towards advanced body weight movements I’m training in via Calisthenics. It’s important to build in deload periods every 4-8 weeks -easier said than done since I’ve always been a ‘more is more’ person 🙄Feeling so much better and stronger after this time out. .
@celestpereirayoga so great to be back in class today, the information you share on the body in your classes is golden, your passion is infectious and you have inspired me so much on my journey of movement. Big love 😍

First time practicing on my brand new @yogi.bare mat. I absolutely love love love this mat. I have been using the 5mm for the past year, it’s so good but not so convenient for shifting between sessions. In the pic above I’m on the travel version and it’s eveything I love about the original just light enough to carry around all day. Can’t recommend highly enough 🙌

This one sold out before I had time to say ‘Eka Pada Vasisthasana’ (the name of the asana I’m doing above 👆) Imagine a lodge with 360 degree view on a hill top in the Algave: plant based local produce, three times daily fitness and yoga sessions @wildviewretreat it’s going to be pretty special. .
I’m in the process of planning another retreat (October) this will predominantly be for my current students but shoot through a dm if you would like to get involved or have any recommendations of other equally awesome spaces to host a retreat. .

Strict version: straight arms, straight legs, full compression, next to full range of motion. Definately more work to be done in refining but super happy with this for now. Compare it to my post on 6th November - a very sketchy version of skin the cat with bent arms bent legs at the end of a round of pull ups. The elements I trained to better this move: scapula strength, straight arm strength, hip flexor/abdominal compression. This is killer on the core!! @movewithtara @mind_body_bowl @_livingyoga so good to have you girls in class today 💗

‘No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself.’ -Virginia Woolf .

I’ve had a few injuries lately. My initial reaction is frustration so I have been consciously reshaping my response in order to focus on all the things I can do rather than the things I have put myself temporarily on hold from (Sundays triathlon 😭) It’s a timely reminder to salute my body for all it has achieved of late, the idea of doing a pull up seemed light years away and touching my toes was only possible if I drawbridged my back 😂. I remind myself there’s no hurry and there is no end destination only consistent practice and curiosity. I love teaching yoga because I love seeing people become empowered by the strength and space they find within their body as week by week capabilities from within wriggle their way to the surface. .

The nature of being freelance means on days like today when I managed to break/drop/loose most things I came into contact with and generally failed with adulting it’s viable to drop everything and climb up walls and hang upside down with your other freelance mates descending into uncontrollable laughter - the best kind of reset. All the fun climbing @archclimbing this afternoon with @dellewills @movewithtara @kimhartwell @lydiaebuckler @ellatighe - 💗 you girls.

I have confidence in my foundations. It has taken me a long time (talking a decade) to reach the level of flexibility/strength/control I have found through consistent steady practice. Now I’m mainly having a lot of fun. I work on new things and they don’t go super smooth or look super neat (👆😂) but I have stacks of fun and as a by product I feel like I’m progressing my way towards amazing things. .
