“It’s better to practice discipline than rely on motivation.” Force yourself to do things. Motivation doesn’t get me out of bed at 5am - discipline does. Practice to form habits & routine. Discipline is reliable, motivation comes and goes.
Have you ever been unsure or even insecure about to post sth or not? 🙈. ⠀ Lots of you praise my (low butt) firefly as one of the bests here in the gram. I really doubt that 😂. Only for IG I practice FireFly. Forward folds, Malasana, Crow ... those are the ones I do daily. Some days I add a Sleeping Buddha 😝. ⠀ For my #SaturdayProgress I really wanted to share where it officially started. I think I never published the #footage 🤔. Please excuse the shitty quality and lighting of the top video. I just started my IG journey (I am such a #latebloomer 😝). I had no idea about photo or video apps not to mention angles and perspective 😂. I just recorded everything with my iPhone 4 (not even a 4s 🙈🤪). ⠀ Already back then I thought it's easier to enter FireFly from Kurmasana. It’s a perfect prep to surrender into that forward fold and to get the knees high up to your shoulders. Super shaky but I felt like a #girlboss when I reviewed my vid 💁🏻♀️💪🏼😂 ⠀ Bottom vid is taken the other night. I was chillin on my balcony, almost ready to go to sleep when some friends wanted to know how I got so low (see my FireFly three posts back). ⠀ They wanted to understand why they can't get as low although they have pretty flexible hamstrings. ⠀ Well, here is the secret. It’s all about the positioning/ rotation of arm/ elbow and the slightly wider stance of your hands 💡. Enter from Kurmasana to get your butt really low. Enter from standing if you want a high flying Tittibhasana 🤪 Try it, take a pic and lmk the results in the comments 🤓. ⠀ Additional info. They tried and turned into believers #loveyoumyfriends ❤️ ⠀ My reasons to be nervous about this post? 🙅🏻♀️ Both vids were never meant to get posted 🧟♀️ Quality, camera angle, facial expression ... less #instagrammable 😖 my left leg gives in when the load on my hip joint got too much. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #fireflypose#transformations#transformationtuesday#transformationthursday#yogaprogress#fitnessbeforeandafter#beforeandafter#beforeandafters #yoga#yogagirl#yogalife#yogini#yogapose#yogaeveryday#yogadaily#yogafun#yogaaddict#yogalove#yogatwerk#yogapantsfordays#yogafit#yogaram#yogateacher#yogastrong
