MOST RECENT

As a yoga teacher I spend a large portion of my time observing students connect to their breath.
Without this connection, breathing is an autonomic process that moves us 23 000 times each day without us paying it much attention.
And yet when we are asked to tune into it there is a very definite shift. Conscious breathing stimulates us chemically and triggers completely different parts of the brain - firing electrical impulses in the cerebral cortex and areas associated with emotions. Each conscious breath affects our physical body, our emotional and our mental states.
Each conscious breath offers us an opportunity to be present. To let go of the past and the future and to come into ourselves and just feel.
It is powerful medicine and I’m never not in awe. #bayareayogadublin #breathisboss

Bit of Pablo play on the yoga mat... Great for a bit of much need thoracic extension, shoulder opening and Pablo love after phone physio all morning.

You don't need the perfect age / fitness level / flexibility / yoga pants before getting involved in something. You just have to get started. If I would have waited with setting up my own business until my maths skills were better (and my English), I still would sell confetti dressed as a clown. Don't get me wrong, that was a fun job. For a while...

So a follow up on yesterday's post….. The most frequent cue I use when asking people to raise their arms overhead - is to ‘REACH UP FROM THE OUTER ARMPIT’ as this reinforces the upward rotation motion of the scapula and is quite a SIMPLE instruction. 🤔🤔🤔 I defo don't use it every time but do find it effective for sure!

I imagine the whole reason the draw shoulder blades in and down cue became so common in the yoga world is because teachers would see their students with their shoulders super hunched and the cue would often work, but it is a little counterintuitive to what you are asking the scapula to do. 🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸 If someone is really bunching up at their shoulders and they are over ELEVATING their scapula (swipe left twice for scapula actions), in this case I will often simply cue them to ‘SOFTEN THE SHOULDERS’. 🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹 I do use the cue draw the shoulder blades in and down btw- just not when I’m asking people to raise their arms overhead! 🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸 Just some shouldery food for thought. What do you guys think???🤔🤔🤔 There is no right answer really - we all interpret cues differently! 🔸🔹

Four years ago we were beach warriors- four years ago I spent a month in the jungle in Costa Rica and studied yoga with an amazing group of humans. Four years ago I started to learn about pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone and living in the present moment. A pivotal moment in my life.

It has been a work in progress every day since.

Often times it’s not the quick switch flip and life change we see in the movies but a clearer awareness that grows with intentional nurturing 💞

I’d love to hear about an experience that opened your eyes and propelled you forward!👇

Seated forward fold or Paschimottanasana is a pose I often adjust in my classes. Many think they need to be folded in half for this one and smelling their toes, but not necessarily. Unless you're naturally very flexible you're more likely to get more benefits out of this pose by following these top tips:
1. Keep your spine nice and long by folding from your hips rather than waist.
2.Keep the muscles at the front of your thighs engaged - imagine lifting your knee caps up towards your hips.
3. Bring your shoulder blades down and together, creating space between your shoulders and ears
4. Use your arms to guide you but don's see it as an arm workout.
Visualisation: As you breathe through this pose - imagine lengthening your spine and growing taller as you inhale and sinking deeper into the pose as you exhale.

Do you move around enough?
Type 2 diabetes is becoming more prevalent as our lifestyles have changed. As a Physiotherapist this is a problem I see frequently. Clients ask me why it matters for their Physiotherapy. The truth is that type 2 diabetes has an impact on issues such as healing time of fractures and soft tissues, can result in sensory disturbances or loss and in the worst cases can lead to amputations. Physiotherapists can help through encouraging safe levels of exercise or increased activity.
Sugar isn’t the enemy but it is important to eat sensibly and move around. If you don’t enjoy exercising then do an activity you enjoy such as gardening or going for a walk. .

W E • imagine that as soon as we are torn out of our habitual path all is over, but it is only the beginning of something new and good. As long as there is life, there is happiness.
And there is a great deal, a great deal, still to come.

New Yoga Video up! Link in bio! 10min shoulder strength 🧘‍♀️ ⠀




I found this poster in Marylebone over the weekend and it made me smile. The last month I have really stepped out of my comfort zone to try and grow and develop myself and do more of the things that I am passionate about. Creating Yoga and Pilates videos scares me as I'm putting myself out for everyone to see and potentially judge. But I love Yoga and Pilates and I want to share it with you and ultimately be able to help others through combining it with Physiotherapy. ⠀

This often comes up when I’m teaching A+P on teacher training at the WONDERFUL @bristolschoolofyoga @bristolcityyoga so thought I would share the love.

As always it’s a not one size fits all answer, the body is just never black and white... 🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹 BUT, if we look at the biomechanics of the shoulder blade when we move the arms overhead (swipe left to see different scapula actions), when we raise the arms overhead the scapula UPWARDLY ROTATE. Therefore telling the shoulders to come down and in seems a bit counterintuitive to the motion that is occurring. 🔹🔹🔹🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🔹🔹🔹 Depending on the students position - telling someone to pull in and down - may help SOME people to upwardly rotate a little more, but most, likely WOULD NOT. Remember not everyone will do the same movement from the words that you use. 🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔸🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹 So what does this mean - does it really matter ?? - My take on this (but always open to other opinions) - I don’t use this cue when instructing students to take their arms are overhead. I often don’t cue the shoulder blades at all - it depends however on what people are doing in front of me and the theme of the class etc. Are you going to damage anyone giving the cue - no. That being said I still don’t find it particularly useful / effective.
My favourite shoulder cues when the arms are overhead ….? Will post more tomorrow... Yogis - What cues do you like using when lifting the arms overhead??
Got any anatomy questions for me?

NHS & Yoga Therapy combined - whose with me??? Yoga is a way of life not a flexibility driven sport (Yes flexibility is a positive outcome). You don’t have to be ‘flexible’ to do Yoga - I’m sure not!

"The flower invites the butterfly with no-mind;
The butterfly visits the flower with no-mind.
The flower opens, the butterfly comes;
The butterfly comes, the flower opens.
I don't know others, Others don't know me.
By not-knowing we follow nature's course." Ryōkan

Ryōkan Taigu was a Zen Buddhist practitioner who lived most of his life as a monk, and is remembered for his poetry and calligraphy, which present the essence of Zen life.
After many years as a monk, Ryokan left the monastery and began a relationship with a Zen nun named Teishin.

On his deathbed, Ryōkan offered the following death poem to Teishin: "Now it reveals its hidden side
and now the other—thus it falls,
an autumn leaf."

No naked belly videos this week, sorry guys. Classes are all about your breath & going into your body this week. It's literally exploring your "core", which is so much more than the physical stuff I showed you last week.

Wise words from @umadinsmoretuli.
