✨Half Forward Fold✨Ardha Uttanasana✨ We flow through this move dozens of times in yoga and rarely stop to break it down. This is one of my favorite poses, because I love opening my chest and front body as I get Stretchy in my legs.

Correct ✅:
1️⃣There should be a little baby back bend happening when you are doing this pose. The upper spine bones compress and the front body opens. You can place the hands where you need to - on the floor, on the shins, knees, blocks - whatever works for you.
2️⃣Shoulders open externally and roll down the back. There's even a slight compression of the shoulders into the lats and side body. This allows for the chest to open.
3️⃣Chest and sternum lifts up and out and radiates like a ray of sun ☀️.
4️⃣Lower abs pull up and in. Ribs soften.
5️⃣Weight stays Forward over the toes. To behonest my weight could be a bit more forward now that I'm looking at this pic 🙄 this will help fire 🔥 up the use of the hamstrings
-
Incorrect ❌:
1️⃣Hunching the back like this is usually caused from inflexibility, so instead raise the level of your arms up to something higher like your knees, and even bend your knees slightly to help lengthen the spine.
2️⃣Since the back is hunched, the shoulders are rolling forward, and the back is being stretched, not the front of the body.
3️⃣Chest and sternum is not radiating like the sun ☁️ and not being stretched or energized
4️⃣Abs are pushing out and slack
5️⃣Weight is back on the heels, meaning the hamstrings are not firing.

EAGLE ARM MODIFICATIONS //
Getting into eagle arms is sometimes not just totally confusing, but may also be impossible for people with tight shoulders or larger arms. The wrapping and tucking of the arms just don't happen. It really isn't anything to fret about though. There are other variations that you can try which give the same benefits - opening up the shoulders.

STANDARD EAGLE ARMS
It's quite difficult to explain how to get into this without actually demonstrating, but let's try anyway. For right side:
1. Bring your arms in front of you with triceps parallel to the ground, bending at the elbows so 10 fingers point up.
2. Cross the arms so the right bicep is under the left tricep.
3. Bring your right thumb to your nose.
4. Straighten the left elbow slightly so the hand moves forward.
5. Now that the left hand is in front of the right arm, move the left hand to the left of your right palm. At this point, left hand is on the left, right hand on the right, but arms are twisted.
6. Bring the left hand towards your face, then join both palms, with the thumbs toward your face and pinkies away from you.
7. Once the palms are together, there is no need to align the fingers (one palm can be higher than the other) but pull the elbows up in line with the shoulders.

MODIFICATION 1
Bring your palms together & forearms together in front of you. Pull the elbows up and try to get them in line with your shoulders.

MODIFICATION 2
Get to step 2 of the standard eagle arms. Then instead of twisting the arms, just touch the tops of both palms and forearms together. Pull elbows up to shoulder height. Again, no need for fingertips to be aligned.

MODIFICATION 3
This is the easiest modification for very tight shoulders. Just give yourself a nice big hug! Keep trying to pull your elbows up to shoulder height. •
Let me know how these work for you! Have fun x

If the hand bind isn't happening yet, allow a strap, a belt, or a towel to help you connect the two hands together.
1️⃣ Sink right shoulder low so the right arm can wrap under the leg more easily.
2️⃣Bend the left knee and lower hips before stepping the left foot in so you can find balance more easily.
3️⃣Start from lifting the right heel and wait until you feel the weight stable on left foot before you lift.
4️⃣Press down through the inner left foot to rise more naturally.
5️⃣ Lift the right hip up so the right leg can be straight.
Once your shoulders are ready, you can let go of the strap. If you find it hard to balance, practice next to a wall so your foot can find the support when needed. Have fun! Xx ❤️

#birdofparadise #birdofparadisepose

#bhujangasana es un postura de flexion posterior que suele ser todo un desafío poder permanecer de forma cómoda, por lo menos lo fue para mi😐
Algunos típs a tener en cuenta:
✔Rotar muslos internamente ✔Elevar el pecho lo más posible, manteniendo los hombros relajados, lejos de las orejas. ✔Al presionar con las palmas giralas en espiral hacia afuera(sin llegar a moverlas), esto hará que los codos se acerquen a las costillas.
A practicar disfrutando!
Feliz martes🍃💖💖

°SHOULDERS ALIGNMENT IN HEADSTAND°
Sometimes when focusing on lifting the legs correctly, on having the core activated... But we forget about the shoulders! Is our base! So take this in mind. 👌🔝

A veces nos centramos en subir bien las piernas, en tener el Core activado... Peeero nos olvidamos de los hombros. Son nuestra base! Hay que construir la postura desde una base sólida, así nque recuerda esto. 👌🔝

❓DO YOU COMPENSATE IN ASANAS❓#doyoucompensateinasanas
.
Today I am looking into one of my "I hate this pose" pose - GARLAND POSE or MALASANA. This is the one where compensation comes so easy that it is very easy to forget what we should not do. ❓HOW DO WE COMPENSATE IN GARLAND POSE❓
.
compensation in this pose is a little bit more complex than in other poses. When our hips are not ready for this pose we start lowering down, but our knees start closing, we can not pass hip hight and we go stuck. .
The next thing that usually happens is our unawareness of movement of the pelvis and we keep it tucked in resulting in our back hunching. .
Also when we start going down and didn't open out feet as enough, and our Achilles tendons can not take it, our heels pop up. .
❓WHY DO WE COMPENSATE IN GARLAND POSE❓ ➿ Lack of flexibility in hip rotators.
➿ Lack of flexibility in lower back.
🚫 Lack of movement of pelvis resulting in tucked pelvis.
➿ Lack of flexibility in Achilles tendons.
💪 Lack of strength in hip abductors and gluteus muscles resulting in knees closing. 💪 Lack of strength in our core.
.
🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫🚫 Compensations are not miss alignments. They are stages that most yogis go through in their practices in one or every pose. They depend on many things and can be various. They are workaround that we use when we come to a deadpoint. The difference between alignment cues and compensation is when you are compensating you are not WRONG. The goal is to recognize that you are compensating and learn how to move forward.

Here is for our love-hate relationship with #chairpose or utkatāsana. You have all the cues in the collage so i will tell you a story instead.
👑In the past, chairs weren't common and were reserved only for the royalty. Therefore, a chair was basically a throne. A story in the Ramayana goes that Bharata was made crown prince instead of his half-brother Rama because King Darsharatha owned Bharata's mother a favor. Knowing that he didn't deserve the throne, Bharata placed Rama's shoes at his chair to symbolize his unworthiness as well as his devotion to Rama. And that was also when Rama's literally epic exile began.
⭐️Knowing this, you can practice the pose with a sense of loyalty (on Bharata's part) and adventure (on Rama's part). Devote to the stability of the alignment and explore new possibilities of the pose's many variations. 🌈

Forward folds are quite challenging for me, as a runner and office worker, I have tight hips and hamstrings but look at this! The yoga is working! Trust the journey 🙏✨
.
Las flexiones hacia delante son bastante difíciles para mi, correr y el trabajo de oficina hacen que mis isquios y flexores de cadera se acorten pero mirad esto! Sin duda poco a poco el yoga funciona! Confia en el proceso 🙏✨

Day 27 of #splitsadventure with @cyogalab is full splits with a backbend. I have to say, I'm pretty happy with my progress into splits. A couple of months ago, @roman.yoga saw me in class struggling with blocks and told me "One day, it's just going to happen. Keep practicing!" 🙌🏻 #practiceandalliscoming #splits #flexibility #flexible

Hola yogis! Acá les muestro como subir al paro de manos desde la fuerza del centro y con las piernas separadas, una transición avanzada para los que ya logran mantener un #handstand bien cómodo y estable.
Podes usar dos pares de bricks (ladrillos) si necesitas más altura.

*Learning from Master Deep. Yoga begins from the basics. A straight line. With A healthy straight spine you have more energy, breathe better and you live longer*🙏 Sitting position Dandhasana and Tail bone - Tail bone has two ends anterior(front) and posterior(back). In sitting position most of the time tail bone, back end goes towards the front side which called posterior tilt.
Make sure that that is not happening and if that is happening bring the anterior part of tail bone towards the posterior and check that you are sitting on the centre of the sit bone.. If we sit on the front or back edge of sit bone it just sucks the whole Prana and make a person easily tired .. Enjoy your sitting position
Here in picture I am using my knee to bring the anterior tailbone towards the posterior to neutralize the pelvic region so my student can enjoy this position without any compression on lumbar spine.. dear friends.. Enjoy 🙏 jai ho
