Day 19 #MayIBeginYoga2015 is Dhanurasana or Bow Pose. @kinoyoga @beachyogagirl 🎀 Since i'm already #39weeks pregnant, i can't lie on my stomach anymore. 😶 So, i did #ParsvaDhanurasana or Side Bow. You get all the benefits of Dhanurasana while keeping baby safe! 😊👌 Namasté!😄💓

#helpmelbalance Monday
If you have limited range of motion in the knee, you might (ever so gently) try this with a strap around the foot. You can also press your extended leg foot into the wall for more support.

#openheartyogaposes - The challenge kicks off today. Join us for some deep back-bending fun.
Day 1 of the #yogachallenge is #dhanurasana. Check out this variation #parsvadhanurasana - SideBow pose.
You can enter this pose from dhanurasana so once stable there, lift your legs up in dhanurasana (the bow pose) and pull with your arms allowing your chest to go further up off the floor. Try to roll front-back to get easy into the bow pose and when you're ready, 👇
-Inhale roll the shoulders forward -Exhale roll to the side
Don't hang in there. Try to get into bow pose on the side.
- Keep the neck in line with the spine and allow the chest to expand
- keep the knees away from the hips. Squeeze the buttocks and try to get into a bow pose
- gaze at the nose
- your shoulders must hold you together
- breathe few times in the pose and then pull the knees inside, roll back to the centre, press pelvis into the ground and inhale into dhanurasana again
- exhale roll over to the other side and repeat the above steps
- Try to hold in the posture
Don't be too hard on yourself. Breathe and give yourself enough time and practice. 🙏🏻 Check out @Germanyogaman and @ninalfers For more variations.

In case you were wondering, this is my "this-looked-and-sounded-like-a-better-idea-in-my-head" face. Oh well, definitely wasn't redoing it again (and I couldn't cause my grandparents got home before I could even think about it)! I think I'll keep my side bows on the floor haha 😅 Enjoy the rest of your Saturday! 💛

Вообще-то я планировала дать сегодня умный пост на тему осознания своих целей, старания, отказа от ненужного и смирения.... Но тут Диана заболела и мы пол-дня провели в больнице. А еще у нас сегодня без предупреждения отключили на целый день воду.. ВСЮ!!! И холодную, и горячую... потом я поехала в #фитвояж вести 2 тренировки, а по возвращению домой готовилась к завтрашнему суду... Короче сейчас писать красивый мотивационный пост просто нет сил.... Но зато мне удалось одним глазом и одним ухом послушать интервью с МНК. Как же мне откликается то, что каждая трудность , каждая проблема - это вызов и мы сами в силах определить и применить способ ее решения... Ведь по сути мы здесь, чтобы выполнить определенную функцию, соответственно своему предназначению и только... А все сложности - это возможность для самоосознания и расширения внутренних границ, чтобы иметь возможность понять свою миссию, свою дхарму и ставить цели согласно ей.

Кстати на фото/видео я с гордостью делюсь с вами своими достижениями. Мне наконец дали доступ ко второй серии #аштангавиньясайога и я уже дошла до #parsvadhanurasana .
Всем #peace а деткам здоровья!!!! Это так тяжело, кода они болеют!!!

Day 5 of #Ashtanga2pointO is #dhanurasana and #parsvadhanurasana
Our wonderful hosts are:

Our amazing sponsors are @aloyoga and @bhufoods

#ashtanga2pointO day 5 #parsvadhanurasana I need some awesome music to go along with this as it's probably one of the most boring videos to post 😂, but I wanted to show the transitions. Sydney posted the description of moving in and out of this, but basically you inhale up and then exhale over to the side. Five breaths inhale back to centre exhale over to the other side.

Day 5 Post 1 of 2. #ashtanga2pointO
Pose #danurasana #bowpose .
I'm going to do a second post a bit later for #parsvadhanurasana or #sidebow in a bit.
Here I am showing two different bows. The right one is with the flipped grip and thighs hip distance apart- and it's not traditional ashtanga.
The left one is traditional, except I should be pointing my feet. But I find it easier to feel the engagement of my legs with the knees together when my feet are flexed. Feel free to play around with both to see where you can get that burning in your thighs to know you're really activating the legs. Ideally you want the heels and big toes touching.

To do:
Lying on your tummy set up the pose before entering it.
Inhale and press your hip points into the ground , lift your thighs, bend your knees, extend your upper back, roll your shoulders forward and take hold of your ankles. Again press the hip points towards the mat, really engage your pelvic floor by sucking the belly in and off the mat. Draw the pubic bone towards the navel to lengthen your tailbone. Press your big toes together and roll your thighs inwards. Kick your legs back. If you can't keep the knees together then bring them hip distance apart. Do your best to do this symmetrically and not one leg at a time. Your shoulders rotate inwards. .
The beautiful bow shape is created by the equal forces of kicking the legs back and pulling forward and down with your arms. so if you have an imbalance in either area of the body, one is stronger than the other, this pose will let you know that.
On each inhale think of creating space along your spine. And then each exhale bending a little deeper. Once you're up try to soften the back muscles, like all back bending there is surrender involved. Don't worry about what it looks like on the outside, trying to make it look pretty brings ego into it and that's where injuries can happen. Focus on sensation.
This pose is all about the strength of the legs which is key for the rest of back bending. Take 5 breaths in the posture. Then lower your arms and your hands come forwards and up to up dog and then to down dog.
