#Uttanasana

MOST RECENT

First time in a LONG time that I actually practiced at home today. It sounds SO over dramatic but as I got my brows microbladed last week, I’ve not been allowed to sweat and thats basically brought my routine to a grinding halt - and I should never under estimate how much I am attached to my routine! I kinda expected it of myself, but not exercising doesn’t come easy to me 😖 I am WELL aware of how ridiculous this sounds and how in the grand scheme of things I really need to just get a grip as this is a self inflicted situation following a beauty procedure, but I’m just being honest and sharing where my heads at.

So I stayed at home to prevent dangling the gym in front of my nose when I knew I couldn’t use it, and actually had a really nice stretch and worked on some more compression drills (but not too many 💦) And this pose is a wonderful combination of both of those - as well as a well needed wrist stretch I’ll keep in my back pocket for when I get back to those press attempts. ⠀
Right, that’s enough whinging for today, thanks for letting me get that off my chest 😂

Day 1 of #FromTheGroundUp is #ForwardFold a.k.a. #uttanasana ~ Great stretch for the hamstrings, glutes, calves, and low back ~ bend the knees if your hands don’t reach the floor or you’re not able to wrap the arms around your legs 👍😊💛⠀

Today this is my reality. I can pinpoint every single thing “wrong” in this asana. The tightness I’m experiencing is raw and would be discouraging if I gave it power. I choose not to give it power. I choose to acknowledge that last week I was in an airplane for 30+ hours in 6 days. I acknowledge that I wore heels for the first time in years for many of those hours. I acknowledge that my body was thrown back into an action that causes stiffness and immobility. Today, I chose to not be annoyed by my tightness but to embrace it. By embracing it, I once again get to explore my body and move it in a way that it loosens itself up. Today, this is my reality. What will tomorrow bring?

One of the many modifications I need to consider in yoga for pregnancy, is to make space for the bump when forward-folding. Either I am in standing forward fold (#uttanasana) or seated forward fold (#paschimottanasana), I have to give space between the feet so that the bump has space to settle in. #pregnancyyoga #pregnantyogi #yogahomepractice #yogimom

Forward folding on this beautiful Monday after a busy fun-filled weekend. I’m a little hungover tbh so this felt amazing!!! 😁 Looking forward to the challenge @skclay86 as my hammies need more love 💖💖 Wanna play @youyou.yoga @kutzms @yoga.elle @chericampbellbright 💕 Anyone else?

Calm your mind. Take a moment to turn inward. Reflect on all that you have. Let love and light fill the spaces that need more attention. ✨


It’s day 1 of #FromTheGroundUp IG Yoga Challenge and today is highlighting #forwardfold


Standing forward fold, or #uttanasana offers many benefits including a yummy stretch for tight hamstrings and calves. Find length as you inhale, and soften the body as you exhale. Offer a slight (or significant) bend to the knees if you feel tension/tightness. Take several deep breaths. Calm your mind. Find a sense of ease, acceptance, and belonging in your body 💕 • 🧘🏼‍♀️Hosts:

Day ❷ of #BendsAndFoldsWithWerk - #Standingforwardfold
For #forwardfolds like #Uttanasana, the best preparations are more forward folds. Standing, straddle and seated, and variations there of. Best drishti for practice is to gaze at toes, but I like to gaze between knees when shooting.

Recipe for Forward Fold
🌟🌟🌟
I am fascinated by muscle flexibility in general, but hamstrings get the bulk of my attention. So, here's a recipe for the ubiquitous forward fold of yoga. Going in cold at 9am and after a solid hamstring practice at 10am:
🌟🌟🌟
Child's pose (soften hip flexors!)
5 sun salutations
Child's pose (again, get that fold)
Hand to Big Toe - standing fold
Hand to Big Toe - reclining
Pyramid with blocks and without
Half hanuman with block
Janu sirsasana
Seated forward fold
Mor pyramids
Standing forward fold on block
🌟🌟🌟

Another new challenge I wanted to hop in on! These hammies can always use more lovin 💛 Happy I’m finally doin one with ya @survivalkitts9 😘😘

Day one of #HappierHammies #yogachallenge is any forward fold. I wish I could stay here all day💚 I shared this a while back, but it’s one of my favorite explanations of #uttanasana by B.K.S. Iyengar ♥️ “Any depression felt in the mind is removed if one holds the pose for two minutes or more. The posture is a boon to people who get excited quickly, as it soothes the brain cells. After finishing this asana, one feels calm and cool, the eyes start to glow and the mind feels at peace.” Mmm mmmm, yes😌💙

Thanks so much for putting this one together, hosts and sponsors! My hammies thank you, too! 😘😘

Much love, humans 💛 Happy Monday!

Comparto dos secuencias que forman parte de la práctica de esta semana. En la primera, la postura del gato (gendra) y del perro mirando hacia abajo (#adhomuka) con pierna en extensión, combinadas en vinyasa (respiración y movimientos asociados). En la segunda, #prasarita y luego #trikonasana y su #torsion (parivrrta) y finalmente #uttanasana. Recuerden que siempre pueden usar un taco para apoyar la mano en la torsión de Trikonasana, en caso de no poder estirar la pierna que queda adelante. Los tacos como apoyo y extensión de los brazos nos sirven en el camino a la elongación, como siempre, sin apuro!! Namasté 🙏
