Being able to look up while life puts you upside down has it's clear mental benefits... But I guess it'll still come for me 😀 cause this is as good as it gets

Happy Friday, yogis 🌟🌟🌟 It's not as relaxing as the music on the background makes it appear, but somehow, #pincha is not the most difficult thing either.

I wonder if those fidgety circles my toes are doing is the thoughts passing through, or just my body trying to figure out how to deal with this crap 😀

I wasn't sure what the correct Vinyasa for this is, so I suppose I did just the pose, which is usually 100 times easier 😀

Recently life pushed me into a situation where I was compelled to explain my intentions to a person that made very negative, far fetched and untrue assumptions about me.

Life was also kind enough to give me time to stop the knee-jerk reaction to attempt to justify my actions, or to establish an open communication.
I am grateful to have an awareness of what leaks my energy. Mostly, I attribute that awareness to ashtanga.

I practice daily, for a specific amount of time to: - look only where I'm supposed to look, no matter who and what is around, - inhale and exhale exactly when and for how long I'm supposed to, no matter how tough or easy the pose is, no matter how distracting my mind gets, no matter how scared am I of the pose that's coming next, - move without glory of exaggerated additions, without subtraction of feared parts of movement.

It taught me that the less I waste my energy on impressions of how it looks, the better I actually get.

It taught me that the stories of the mind are soooo convincing, but the truth and the simplicity of doing your thing day in and day out proves it all to be lies, regardless of who created them: me, my close ones, those I don't even know.

So, I simply looked away from my fear of opinions, fear of uncomfortable future that hasn't happened yet, fear of "reputation". Because feeding it all my attention screws up my vinyasa 😊

Here is to ashtanga... here is to GOOD TEACHERS of ashtanga... @davidrobsonayct

Video of a totally new #mayarasana #peacock vinyasa for me for the #dontsmashyourface #challenge

Cheers and good night

Time for a refresher.

My chin definitely felt that touchdown on the second attempt... Brutality of yoga 😀😂
But funny thing is, this transition gets easier by the day.

Jumpy.
I'm still figuring out the inhalation on the descend thing.
Most of the time I add a breath, so it gets rushed... And... Jumpy.. 😀

This is slowly moving away from the complete fiasco to a somewhat fiasco with a lot of grunting.
I left the sound on purpose to remember what it means when David Robson says "this is sooooo hard" 😂😂😂 Of course, arms are nowhere near straight, or even decently lifted, but tell me I can't and watch me... 😀
