When Wellness Warrior meets Peaceful Warrior. .
.
At our first team meeting @iamwellnesswarrior asked everyone in attendance to write down one word that would encapsulate something they wanted more of in their life. Without hesitation I wrote down the word “Experience”. .
.
After living away from home for a few years I decided to move back to Miami. I missed my family and wanted to reconnect with my roots. Since moving back, I haven’t traveled or done anything other than work and train. If it wasn’t for the fact that I absolutely love what I do I would have gone crazy. With that said, I’m hungry for new experiences again. I’m ready to step out of my comfort zone and try newer, bolder things. .
.
When people ask me what my end goal with yoga is I always say the same thing: “To share my love and knowledge of the practice with as many people as possible and to learn from as many people as possible.” I know I can’t accomplish this by just staying here. I have plans of traveling next year but in the meantime I’ve decided to get the most out of my city. I’ve started trying new things this year like acroyoga, Ashtanga and have even visited other studios in town like @skandayoga. This has been a game changer for me and has allowed me to start exploring and experiencing again. It’s made me a happier and more well rounded student/teacher. It’s the practice I need for when the real thing comes. .
.
What are you hungry for? Whatever it is, how can you start giving yourself more of what you need now? Start where you’re at. You’re exactly where you need to be! #peacefulwarrioryoga

📌“A fresh attitude starts to happen
when we look to see that yesterday
was yesterday,
and now it is gone;
today is today and now it is new.
It is like that—
every hour, every minute is changing.
If we stop observing change,
then we stop seeing everything as new.”
- Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche .

Looking forward to all the changes .

Day 6 of #ActivateYourCore focuses on the #spinalextensors or #erectorspinae. Don’t miss @cathymadeoyoga’s recovery story in today’s post...pretty amazing! It poured rain all morning, so I did today’s drills in the garage where I could still enjoy it without getting drenched! I love hearing, seeing, and smelling the rain! 💙🌧 My mid and upper back are definitely a weak link for me (backbends are NOT my friend!) so I should probably be incorporating these drills daily! (clip is sped up 2x)

A week of no handstands and a big dose of patience. My practice over the last ten days has been very simple, therapeutic and functional.
.
Try this for instant back pain relief once any acute or sharp pain subsides.
.
Excellent way to strengthen the spinal extensors, develop good postural habits, and address muscular imbalances.
.
Again, not particularly exciting but it provides relief and simply feels good during and after.
.
As you lay in a prone position over the ball, use your inhale to elevate the chest, and the exhale to lower. Gently wrapping the shoulders back and down. x10-12 reps. Keep your glutes and legs active, drawing the navel in towards the spine.

It’s a continuation of last week’s pose, with this being Full Locust or Poorna-Salabhasana. Thank you to Abi for demonstrating so perfectly!🦗
.
Strengthens:
• Lower and Upper Back
• Muscles of the upper arm (deltoids, triceps)
• Abdominal Muscles
• Buttocks
• Quadriceps
• Hamstrings
• Sartorius Muscles
• Calf Muscles
Stimulates:
• Digestive System
• Liver
• Spleen
.
Benefits:
Helps with poor posture, relieves and prevents lower-back pain.
Helps relieve lumbago, arthritis, rheumatism, cervical spondylosis.
Helps to massage abdominal organs, aiding with digestive problems (flatulence, constipation, indigestion.)
Helps regulate and prevent menstrual problems.
Helps with loss of appetite and fatigue.
Releases and breaks through fear, concern and overwhelming responsibility.
.
What is happening in the posture:
Full locust is one of the most difficult postures to improve in the Bikram Yoga series. The posture triggers and strengthens the mid-spine helping to prevent lower back pain. It is also effective at strengthening and toning the hips and buttocks.

Locust and cat
It is not about lifting as high as possible. As our back strengthens, we will easily lift higher. So, take your time.
互相学习;一起进步

Day 5/10 #lovemyselfloveyoga a Asana of the Day: #salabhasana - Locust Pose
.
To get into the pose:
1. Begin lying on your stomach with your arms at your sides. Rest your forehead on the mat. Extend your legs straight behind you, hip-width apart. Press your weight evenly across the tops of both feet.

2. Inhale, raise your head to look forward. On your exhale, lift your chest and arms. Keep your arms alongside your body with your palms facing down. Lift your upper spine and reach your arms back toward your feet.

3. Use your inner thighs to lift your legs up toward the ceiling. Reach straight back through the balls of your feet. Your weight should rest on your lower ribs, belly, and front pelvis.

4. Keep your chest lifted as you widen across your collarbones. Draw your shoulder blades into your back ribs and extend them away from each other.
Gaze at your cheeks. Keep your breath smooth and even.

Day 6 #activateyourcore is spinal extensors. We will focus on glutes the next couple of days so today’s drills focus on building strength while extending the spine. Check my other page for anatomy of the muscles and my progress pics. Video sped up 1xs Today’s drills:
🔥 chest lifts, arms in cactus or clasp them behind the head elbows will be wide, bring the shoulder blades toward the spine as you lift the chest off the ground, feet and legs stay on the ground 🔥 single leg extension. Keep both frontal hip points on the ground as you lift one leg up. 🔥 locust lifts. On an inhale put the two exercises you just did together and lift the legs, head and chest up on an exhale come down. Hold locus at the end, search for an even extension in the spine for this drill so if you have a tendency to over extend in the lumber spine, back out of the pose a little and find more evenness. 🔥 low cobra lifts. Bottom ribs will be on the mat for most, but the chest is up. Shoulder blades engage toward the spine. Base of the skill lifts back so don’t over extend the neck 🔥 balancing table taps. From balancing table bend your lifted leg and tap with the opposite hand. Keep the hips squared. I have spine injury so in the video you’ll see little extension in this drill but for me it’s a lot! If you’ve got more let me see it, just be sure to keep the hips squared. 👊 can’t wait to see your posts!
