Day 3 of #TheYogaBrain
Today we were asked to choose a pose that made us learn something new about our body.
I chose #upavishtakonasana because in this posture I've learnt to let go. It's not only to push or hold on at the asana practice 🌞 but also to be able to release the tension and relax 🌜
Letting go has been a hard lesson to get, but here I'm always willing to practice it.
Haribol 🙏💜

Preparing for Delivery

When I'm practicing #upavishtakonasana, in my head I'm thinking "open, open, open"- like the old Mervyn's department store commercial from back in the day. This way of thinking helped me a lot during the painful sensations I felt with #endometriosis. Before my yoga practice, I would hold so much tension in my pelvic region. When pain was felt, I would hold my breath and pray that it would pass soon. Yoga taught me to breathe and to open, the pain level felt more manageable with just my breath alone, truly incredible. Carrying those practices with me throughout my pregnancy has helped me so much. Being in this last stage, a bit of fear and anxiety has come in, which I'm sure is completely normal and common. And again, yoga has been with me every step of the way, helping me feel strong and empowered, that I can do anything, even birth this little life growing inside of me. #Iyengar shares that this specific pose, including #BaddhaKonasana help strengthen the lower part of the spine, the sacrum, building up tolerance to pain, and maintaining the required suppleness to bear the strain. The variation I am performing is focused on extension, opening and lifting.

It’s all about perspective, our attitude. I find that pinpointing and acknowledging the things I’m grateful for instantly nudge me toward a more fulfilled and joyful state of being.
Three things I’m grateful for today:

1. Recently, I’ve been finding sparks of inspiration everywhere I go, from my observation of space and environments...to conversations with old and new friends. Thank you, beautiful places and souls—you inspire me. ☺️ 2. I’m thankful for nights of comfortable sleep and days of delicious, nourishing food. Sleep is something I’ve always struggled with growing up; I never really prioritized it or recognized it as a crucial part of my wellbeing. By prioritizing it more and also as a byproduct of feeling more grounded in my life, the quality of my sleep has increased significantly. Food...well, let’s just say I’ve had a surplus of fresh guacamole and mango this past week, for which I am truly #blessed and grateful. ☺️ 3. Last but certainly not least, @todosnicos you are everything 🖤

Living selfishly never brings fulfillment, and that it is only when we start putting others first that we can find contentment for ourselves.

✨ Thanks kitty, please tickle my toes as I relax into this Wide Legged Forward Fold (not so much of a fold though, really). But, hey, here’s some good news! We’ve made it to Wednesday people.. Woo!!

UPAVISHTA KONASANA - Esta postura estira os tendões e ajuda o sangue a circular na região pélvica, mantendo-a saudável. Previne desenvolvimento de hérnias e alivia dores ciática. Como essa postura controla e regulariza o fluxo menstrual, estimulando também os ovários, é excepcional para as mulheres.

Zo zie je maar dat je voor yoga en flexibiliteit echt niet graatmager hoeft te zijn. Natuurlijk heb ik ook het liefst zo’n perfect yogalichaam en vind ik de vetrolletjes op m’n rug verschrikkelijk, maar als dat het belangrijkste is in het leven gaat er toch echt iets fout. Yoga helpt me om me fitter te voelen, sterker te worden, mezelf te accepteren, m’n grenzen te verleggen en om af en toe gewoon even een adempauze te nemen. Mocht je twijfelen om aan yoga te beginnen en ben je bang dat je het niet kunt? Gewoon doen, je hoeft niet lenig te zijn, je hoeft alleen maar te kunnen ademen 🤓💚 #yogaeverydamnday #yoganl #yogapose #prasaritapadottanasana #upavishtakonasana #fatyogi #yogafun #yogafam #igyoga #yogadaily #insecurity #selfcompassion #acceptance #mindfulyoga

Every single time you give love, you add more love to the field around you. The more love you give, the greater and more powerful is your magnetic field 🙏🙏🙏 #yoga #upavishtakonasana #love #powerofnow #pregnancyyoga #mamma

This is another one of my favorite poses, it is called Dragonfly (Upavishta Konasana). The focus is on the meridians of the liver, kidneys and bladder. When you use a bolster and pull it up close to your lower tummy, you also massage the fascia around the lower organs which can have a very harmonizing effect on hormonal issues, such as PMS, menstruational cramps, menopause symptoms or prostate related issues. 🙏❤️
Das ist eine weitere meiner Yin-Yoga-Lieblingsübungen, die Libelle (Upavishta Konasana). Der Fokus liegt auf den Meridianen von Leber, Nieren und Blase. Wenn du eine Yogarolle benutzt und sie nah an deinen Unterbauch heranziehst, massierst du gleichzeitig die Faszienhüllen der unteren Organen, was sich positiv auswirken kann auf hormonelle DIsbalancen, z. B. PMS, Menstruationskrämpfe, Wechseljahrs- oder Prostatabeschwerden. 🙏❤️

Movement is my medicine. Awhile back @erinkellyart posted something I will remember forever. She said something to the effect that if she is feeling “off” she checks to see if she has taken her “MEDS” which just stands for Meditation-Excercise-Diet-Sleep. 🧘🏼‍♀️🤸‍♀️🥦😴
.
Usually when we don’t feel good we look to our environment, when we should probably be looking inside first! 🤯😰🤔🤓
.
Have we been meditating? Exercising? Eating healthy foods? Sleeping okay? Usually, the answer is just that simple. 🤗
.
.
We may feel off and blame it on something in our environment, when we need to look no further than our own self-care routine. So, I ask you now, have you taken your MEDS? Where should you be treating yourself better? 😅 🙃🙂😌
.
Thanks @erinkellyart for an awesome way to remind myself to stay on track! 🙏 #zenrezfitness #zenrezfitness #zenbassador #zen .

“Body is not stiff. Mind is stiff” ~Sri K Pattabhi Jois
If someone had told me years ago that I was going to find everything I ever needed by stepping onto a rubber mat I would’ve had a good laugh.
Asana has opened the doorway to my life’s purpose. To serving. To Bhakti ♥️
My body is my temple and vessel for my soul and I honor that with every breath I take on and off the mat. By removing the stiffness in my body I also remove the stiffness in my mind and heart 💙 राम राम

It is day 7 of this challenge #frommymattoyours
Today we take wide angle seated forward bend.
Oh the wide legs. Oh the low back lengthening. Oh the stretch forward. Ugh!
I always told myself that one day I wanted my chest in the floor. To be able to melt down and soak right into the ground.
It is called a practice for so many reasons. It seems sometimes the more that I practice the further away the ground becomes. Gravity. Take me down. Let me melt like butter on a sunny day. Rigid body become subtle and soft. I refuse to give up. I refuse to give in. One day. One day it will happen as I just continue on the journey. As I allow my body to find its own special way to introduce front body to earth. On that day I will have even more gratitude for the movements I am allowed.
And today I lengthen, I soften, I release. And the ground is just a fragment closer. •••••••••••••••••••
