My dad built this little nook in the corner that is so inviting for meditation, reading books or popping into hollowbacks. It feels like it's my size!
True story: I was doing a HIIT work out earlier this morning and somehow KO'd on my mat in svasana in the middle of it. My cousins were already having breakfast, wondering if I was even in my room because it was sooo quiet. πŸ˜‚ at least I was warmed up for this Day 4 of #sunshineyogavibes #hollowback.

I love vacations where I can clear my mind and have no need to reply endless messages and emails. Vacation is like meditation to me. =) #vacation #yogateacher #forearmwheel #urdvadhanurasana #chakrasana #wheelpose #yoga #yogaeverywhere #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #natures #bohol thank you #instagramhusband

It's been awhile since I have done a #progresspic. I remember my first attempt was even before this pic , and I couldn't even hold it for the life of me . I thought how can someone do this impossible pose , my body is probably not meant for this but slowly my body changed and it feels surreal to me that now I am looking forward to touch my toes in this pose because now I know better that #practiceandalliscoming 😊 #yogaprogress

✨ Forearm Wheel Tutorial ✨ #omniyogagirltips ✨ Warm up your shoulders & back before you begin. Puppy pose, bridge pose & camel pose are all good preps. .
1. Start by lying on your back with your feet hip width apart
2. Place both hands beside your head with the fingers pointing towards your feet
3. Make sure that your elbows are pointing upwards - Lift your hips, push into your hands & lift your head so you can place the top of your head on the mat
4. Bring your forearms down to the mat beside your head one arm at a time. Try & walk your hands towards your feet as much as you can
5. Your palms should now be flat on the mat forward of your head - there should be a triangle shape between your hands & your elbows
6. Push into your feet & shift the weight back towards your arms to lift your head up
7. Keep the feet grounded & pushing the weight back with your legs. Think about opening your chest & shoulders. Look towards the mat, or towards your hands & hug the knees towards each other to stop them splaying out & push the mat away with your shoulders
.
✨ Key tips ✨ At first I kept trying to lift my head off the mat by pushing up, & that didn't work at all! πŸ˜‚ Instead, think about pushing into your feet to shift the weight back towards your arms & opening the chest - This will mean that the head lifts up more easily! πŸ‘ Let me know if you give it a try! If you have any questions, please ask! ❀️

#throwbackthursday (is that still a thing?) with some forearm wheel! Top photo is november 2013, bottom photo is today. It might not seem all that different but it does to me! Way more lift in the pelvis, less dumping into the lumbar spine, and a little more shoulder opening. More importantly, the way it feels! I still remember doing this pose for one of those silly instagram yoga challenges, and in it thinking omg my spine is going to snap! Haha. These days I'm using this as part of a tick-tock, from pincha mayurasana and back! Even when progress doesn't look all that much different, I still feel like I've come leaps and bounds with this one. Here's to keeping up with the practice. One day, the impossible suddenly seems possible!

Playing with a little #forearmwheel this #forearmfriday πŸŒ€πŸŒ€πŸŒ€

#backbend #heartopener #backbendjunkie

There is no denying that my flexibility has decreased as my fitness practice has shifted from all yoga to both yoga and weight lifting. At first this was super frustrating to me, but this morning on my mat I noticed that it has become a very positive change.
1) I feel stronger and more stable in many of my arm balances
2) I am more safely and slowly entering/executing complicated poses
3) I feel much more grounded in my breath as breath plays such a huge role in weight lifting as well
🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻
My goal for the summer is to continue to build my strength while also refocusing my yoga practice on flexibility!

Celebrating I'm 41st birthday πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‚πŸŽπŸ•‰ with a forearm wheel (which I've not actually practiced for a few years) as I've not done any yoga for nearly two weeks πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ but I know how good a few backbends make me feel! Also I was waiting for my Mac to do an updateπŸ˜‚
.
.
.
Practising poses really clears my mind, wakes me up, brings me back in touch with my body, heightens my awareness and really brings a massive flood of gratitude and fulfilment to me.
The first time I did a wheel it made me cry 😭 lol. (I remembered how easy it was to do when I was a kid, along with handstands, 'crabs' cartwheels - they all were weren't they! I thought that was why I cried out of saddest πŸ€”lol) I had to google why this was after it happened because I thought it was really kinda weird! But I discovered It's not uncommon to cry:
"Anytime you work with the body, you are also working with the mind and the energy systemβ€”which is the bridge between body and mind," Harrigan explains. And since that means working with emotions, emotional breakthroughs can be seen as markers of progress on the road to personal and spiritual growth." Joan Shivarpita Harrigan, Ph.D "Why We Do Backbends
Whether they come naturally or not, backbends are well worth your effort. Here are a few reasons why:
* They stretch and strengthen:Backbends stretch the entire length of your front body and strengthen your back, arms, and legs. Backbends open the upper back and chest, and stabilize the shoulders so that your posture feels integrated.
* They lift you up: Energetically, backbends are uplifting, stimulating poses. If your energy feels down or low, a backbend practice can shift your energy in a positive direction.
* They empower you: Backbends help you connect to the mysterious intricacies of your back body.
