Want an actual reason to wear your yoga pants on a Saturday? Come along to Namaste for a Brew and have a great reason (/excuse) to wear them all day.
But also, down with yoga pants haters. Live your life comfortable! •

Head over to the Kokoro R Facebook page to see the event and to book tickets, or grab your ticket at https://www.trybooking.com/WLAY

Email me at kokorormovement@gmail.com for more details!

This came up in my personal newsfeed and I absolutely had to share it again. This series shows the journey to a good yoga shot, rocky and bumpy, haha. •

For a couple of years I was supported in my yoga teaching journey by the lovely @sayritanita at @elan.dance.est. Taking classes there opened up a whole new world of yoga and yoga instructing for me, providing the inspiration to start up @kokoro_ryoga. Forever grateful for the opportunities passed my way. •

Also, thanks to @caitlin._.young from @young_creations_ for always being there with the camera when I need you!

It’s here! Namaste for a Brew is now live, ready for bookings and for getting excited! 🧘🏽‍♀️💪🏼🙏🏿🍻 We’re kicking off in two weeks, so head on over to the Kokoro R Facebook page to find the event and book your ticket, or find the ticket URL in the Kokoro R Instagram bio. 🧘🏾‍♀️💪🏼🙏🏿🍻 This event is 18+ due to being held in a licensed venue and the incorporation of alcohol.

Last post didn’t show the video! Here you go, it’s fixed this time round Would you look at this absolute winner! 😎🤩💪🏼 @fatjontyfitness has come back to my classes (used to come when he was still at Trinity College) and is better than ever. He really puts his all into each class, pushing his limits and always trying new things. ——————————————— #Repost @fatjontyfitness

Trying out yoga over the past few weeks.
Trying to master a head stand (along with many other things).
Trying to increase my flexibility and some other strengths, already noticing some improvements here and in my lifting.
Thanks @rhirhilou from @kokoro_ryoga for all the help and trying to avoid being my bowling pin

We’ll meet at the playground/grassed area of Floreat Beach at 9am and walk down to our location to start the yoga by 9.15. Looking forward to seeing you all down there!

I had to repost this one from @lara.heimann for all my newbies in class (especially the engineers and scientists who will love the force vectors, haha). These arrows show where your energy should be flowing in a forward fold to make the most of the pose and protect your body! Hit me up with any questions. And thanks Lara 🙏🏼💋 ・・・ I do a lot of these markups of clips of movement to allow the person to see where the energy needs to flow.
Remember the force vectors you might have learned in high school? They are super cool and super relevant when dissecting and investigating functional movement. When healthy movement patterns are practiced, in terms of physics and therefore energy, ALL IS WELL.
Can you see where the energy needs to move? And can you see how the current movement pattern, when performed NUMEROUS times during a vinyasa flow, could potentially be NOT SO GREAT for the joints in the back?
Alignment matters. Energy matters. Store it well so you can move it well. And move it well so you can store it even better. 🤛

Repost of my vid from last week, making me wish it was still this sunny and I had time to go to the beach! We’ve got a great venue to practice in in the meantime, and make sure you keep an 👁 and 👂🏽out for an upcoming #beachyoga event! ................................................... If you want to challenge your yoga, head to a beach in Perth! Nothing other than loose sand for a base really challenges your strength and balance, it’s pretty amazing.
This is just a quick little flow for fun 😄✌🏼😋💋 Come along to class tonight (or any other Tuesday or Thursday) to see what your body can do for you, you won’t regret it.

💪🏼💪🏾💪🏿SHOULDER STAND TUTORIAL💪🏿💪🏾💪🏼 Shoulder stand (Sarvangasana) is a great pose for increasing core strength, spinal flexibility, hamstring and gluteal flexibility, and general dynamic movement. There are so many variations and modifications that make this pose accessible to everyone, in some form. This tutorial shows you ways to use this pose to create a sequence that works on all of the areas mentioned above.
1. Push your belly button to your thighs as you stretch forward, lengthening your hamstrings and awakening your core.
2. Slowly lower your spine to the floor, feeling each vertebra touch the floor until your shoulders touch.
3. Lift your feet (bend knees if back arches off the floor) until you feel the stretch through your hamstrings and glutes. This is your first option, and can be where you leave the sequence for now, doing as many reps as you can.
4. Flow through the sequence again, this time lifting your hips off the floor slightly, using your core and pressing lightly on your outstretched hands. Your feet can take travel as far over your head as is comfortable, feeling the release in your spine and hamstrings.
5. If you want a bit more, try touching your feet to the ground over your head.
6. Pick your hips high, supporting your back with your hands. Play around with the position of your legs (e.g. straight up, split over head, bent knees, soles of feet touching, whatever feels good) in your shoulder stand, and repeat as many times as you can.
Contact me with any questions, or come along to class to get the hands on teaching approach.

Thanks to teenytinyom for the image.

Another awesome example of people taking the pose and finding what works best for their body. This always makes me so happy. What you see here is a bunch of different modifications on the extended hand-to-big-toe pose (Utthita Hasta Padangustasana)
As I’ve said, no one’s a red balloon at Kokoro R, we’re all in it together.
See you tomorrow night for some Hatha at 6pm and Power at 7pm.

It makes me so happy to see people in all different stages and modifications of headstand (sirsasana). This is a core tenet at Kokoro R, to listen to your body and mindfully attack each pose according to what is best for your body. Also, we’ll be starting up headstand in next week’s Power Yoga.

Everyone at the @vybenationwa Dancehall Camp getting down into garland pose (malasana) in this absolutely picturesque location up in Bickley. Couldn’t have asked for a better setting than this backdrop at 7am, I’m grateful to everyone who was at camp.
I can’t promise you this setting every time, but I can promise you the same vibe, the same workout, the same beats and the same zen at my regular classes at Kokoro R.

Home Tutorial

We’ve been doing this inversion in Power Yoga this month, and I’m seeing lots of improvement in upper body strength and confidence in placing body weight over the hands. Inversions can be scary, so using a wall balance pose to get your bearings is a great way to start.
Remember that you should always take these poses slowly, listen to your body and stop when it tells you to stop. If you’ve never done an inversion before, make sure someone is around to spot you just in case, and don’t feel like you have to get up there straight away. Puppy pose stretching and push ups will help gain the strength and flexibility you need in your upper body to achieve this pose.
Pose Steps:
Start by stretching your shoulders to make sure they’re warm, and then do the wall puppy pose (hand high on the wall, then pull down through your hips, aiming to keep you chest of the wall). That’s a great shoulder opener, and might also give your back a little stretch. When you’re ready, forward fold with your bum to the wall and place hands on the ground. Place one shin on the wall at a time, then try to get your hands a bit closer to the wall (right hamstrings can make it a little difficult to get your hands close, so try adjusting once you’re up). Final step is to pull your head through your hands, slowly opening your shoulders further and challenging your upper body strength.

This is in one week! I’ll be taking the yoga session on Saturday morning, so make sure your ticket covers that time slot! One more week of classes before we get to go out bush for a weekend of dance, yoga, meditation and chilling out! I’m excited, if you can’t tell.
