Willing sun, blossoms, grass, birds, and warmth to come...through movement movement movement.
🌸
Asana is prayer in motion if it is done with intention and reverence. I offer my practice to nature, to my breath, to my body, to my loved ones, to the great mother.
🌸
I’m wearing peacock pants (unusual for monochrome me!) thanks to @panaprium in the hopes that the peacock feathers will call out to the other birds. I miss their song. Not so much the NYC pigeons on my ledge, although their murmurings are sort of sweet. I even paid them a little tribute in the middle of this sequence.
🌸
Come Spring! Do your thing!

Music @falgunipathak12 🙏🏽
Shanti Shanti Shanti.

Los deportistas tienen que usar su energía durante la competición en periodos muy cortos de tiempo. El yoga puede no hacer aumentar la musculatura pero da resistencia a los tendones que son las raíces de los músculos y su fuente de nutrición. El yoga ayuda a rejuvenecer los tendones y almacena en ellos energía para usarla en el momento necesario.
Cuando los deportistas vienen, dicen por ejemplo, que son muy buenos con el lado derecho, pero muy malos con el izquierdo. Éstos son sus problemas. Antes os hablaba de alineamiento. Para los atletas y deportistas el alineamiento es importantísimo. En cada deporte hay ciertas partes del cuerpo que se desarrollan más que otras. Pero no están aisladas entre sí. El yoga enseña a utilizar los músculos muy activamente y con gran precisión, sin crear ninguna desviación entre un lado del cuerpo y otro. Cuando creamos los alineamientos correctos, se evitan las lesiones, aunque depende de cada atleta y su especialidad.
Por otra parte, dado que el ácido úrico se almacena en las articulaciones, éstas se vuelven rígidas y es cuando aparece la fatiga. La práctica del yoga, debido al máximo estiramiento y la máxima flexión que se realiza sobre los músculos y articulaciones, disuelve estos ácidos y evita la aparición del cansancio.
Para fortalecer y educar a los atletas en los movimientos correctos, estudiamos sus movimientos en nosotros mismos, para ver cuál es el efecto que su acción errónea produce en el cuerpo. Incluso si se toma solamente desde el ángulo físico, el yoga es un ejercicio básico para todos los demás, porque cuando lo practicamos tenemos acceso a todas las partes del cuerpo simultáneamente, mientras que en otras maneras de estar en forma o en otros ejercicios no se tiene en cuenta esta conciencia de interpenetración.
Aunque los atletas vengan, en general, para estar en buena forma física, la dimensión del yoga es espiritual, pero el Señor dice: “Si alguien viene a pedirte pan, no le des una piedra”. Si el yoga se aplica para su bienestar físico, para intentar que gane o para cuando está bajo de moral, esto no significa que el yoga sea solamente a nivel físico. Se tiene que dar según las necesidades de cada persona.”

It’s Day 7️⃣ of #babygotbackbending with the elusive (at least for me!) #pinchamayurasana a #backbending #forearmbalance also know as #scorpionpose. 🦂
I remember the first time I saw someone do this in class my jaw literally dropped. And, I, of course, thought, I want to do that/I could never do that. That was probably close to 10 years ago, before I got pregnant with my first daughter. And here I am today, though a bit wobbly, in it! Ahhh, possibility is beautiful. 🦂

This is probably the most challenging inversion for me compared to headstand & handstand because I feel unstable in my shoulder girdle and struggle with how to “bail out” without rolling into my sensitive right shoulder. But, that’s the lesson: lose the fear and stay with the strength 💪🏼! 🦂

ALL the previous poses cues from posts in this challenge apply, so I won’t reiterate but only add on. 🦂 ➡️Prep for scorpion is lots of forearm plank, adding in movement to stabilize and integrate the shoulders, ie shift forward and back on toes, forearm side plank reps, scapular push ups, etc. ➡️Add in multiple rounds of dolphin 🐬 pose (forearm downdog), continuing to lift and engage through shoulder girdle. ➡️Walk your feet as close as you can to your elbows (seem here) and play with lifting one leg and then another. ➡️Maybe you stay with building strength through leg lifts or maybe you can catch some air. I say it’s A-OK to practice this with toes against the wall since it is a backbend (vs kicking up to the wall for handstand which encourages bad habits) ➡️Here I start w stag legs and move on to a leg together scorpion variation. Play with what works for you but remember to keep low belly engaged!

Have fun & be safe in this one by listening to your body and not pushing it too far.
Today is the last day of our challenge but we have a bonus day tomorrow, as well as our workshop, led by @ericavetrayoga at @nectarflowyoga and available online. If you’re behind you still have time to catch up or jump in! .

Finally getting those arms a little straighter in pincha and working my way up to hollow back 🤗 A couple of people have messaged me asking how I get into chinstand so swipe right to see a speedy version of how I enter it! And if you scroll back to January on my insta you can see where I started out with this transition shaking in my boots lol (ps please disregard my sunburn, I decided to stay on the beach for 8 hrs the other day 🙃) Happy Friday!! 🧘‍♀️

i am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it is melted within my breast; my mouth is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to my jaws; you lay me in the dust of death.

“Played around with pincha mayurasana to get some fun ideas for the workshop on 4/29 @yogaforallbeings and made this little layout for fun. If you practice pincha already, I'll have some fun variations and mini drills you can do to work on it!”

” No Yoga, não estamos criando algo para os outros assistirem. Quando fazemos vários ásanas, observamos o que estamos fazendo e como estamos fazendo. Fazemos apenas para nós mesmos. O praticante é o observador e o objeto de observação ao mesmo tempo. Se não prestarmos atenção em nós mesmos na nossa prática, não podemos chamá-la de yoga.” Sri Krishnamacharya

Namastê 🙏
