Seeing everything as a yoga prop πŸ€“#yogageek #urdhvadanurasana

Taught the most delicious, slow, simple class tonight combing through the muscles with the breath and activating areas that usually get left out in speedy vinyasa classes. It's so nice to fit the class to the energy of your students (and yourself) and see them all smiling after a long and simmering savasana. Freaking love my job! πŸ€“πŸ•‰ #yogageek #yogaontables #yogateacher

Zombie press to headstand!!
I saw this on several insta accounts and thought it looked impossible but it turned out that I'm possible (lame humor and word play) and that it also is a super fun exercise!!

MOST RECENT

Earlier this year I decided to put my yoga website together. One of those challenges that I throw at myself on a spur of the moment, only to realise that I don't have enough material time to see it through. I thought "We've done our wedding one! How bad can it be?". I could have not been more wrong. This baby has been in the making since April and I got a professional to create it. My holidays have been revolving around researching, creating content, hassling Luca to take and edit pictures, getting a logo designed, finding the right site developer, spending time emailing and chatting to them, reviewing and changing. I've come to terms with me being a perfectionist when it comes to my work which very often has bothered my own self: "just let it go, it's fine!" The biggest challenge has been to make it a point to dedicate time to this project once my working day was over; however as I saw it come to life the excitement would bring me back to the laptop, to the photos, to getting the content ready. I've learned a thing or two about what is behind a website! And once again I had so much support from friends and family which kept fuelling the fire when it was burning low. So here it is, another means for me to reach out to the people who love yoga, the people who have just started their journey and the ones who are about to discover it. www.gracesistoyoga.com

That time of the day.. πŸ’• πŸ€—

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will ~ Gandhi
.
.
.
Mind does always come before matter. Not only the strength to move but even the ability to stretch, release or relax needs mind over matter. These require as much control over mind as the capacity to lift a finger- as much as we want to and for as long as we need to. All it takes is the 'will' to do it, or not do it. It is said when people are under anaesthesia and the conscious mind is lulled into a coma like state they gain very high levels of flexibility ~ from increased range of motion in back, shoulder and legs to even cases where a complete split was achieved which was otherwise not possible when conscious. While the latter seems anecdotal there's sufficient evidence that range of motion and flexibility is significantly increased under anaesthesia. That's why in Yoga we never push and pull or put our nervous system in shock while trying to increase our range of motion. Then we just end up propagating the same mistreatment which lead us to this stiffness in the first place. It's a gentle coaxing of the system that can take a lot of patience and perseverance because we aren't just lengthening those hamstrings or opening up the shoulders, we're releasing lifetimes' worth of stress that we've harboured in this little abode of ours. πŸ’›

Anybody remember this from teacher training??? Love teaching about the endocrine and nervous system in relation to stress response! @reform.studios @muktiyogaschool #anatomynerd #yogageek #timetorest #stressresponse #beyondasana

Once I realized HOW I fall makes all the difference in pincha (straight back vs. twisting sideways), I feel it's not so far out of reach as I thought. Also, walking wheel is awkward, but geekily fun. And air walking down from headstand is hard. All in a Saturday's practice. 😘

"Prana is an auto-energizing force which creates a magnetic field in the form of the universe and plays with it, both to maintain, and to destroy for further creation. ... Prana (energy) and citta (consciousness) are in constant contact with each other. They are like twins. 🌟🌟Prana becomes focused where citta is, citta where prana is....as long as the breath is still, prana is still and hence citta is still. All types of vibrations and fluctuations come to a standstill when prana and citta are steady and silent." -from commentary on sutra II.49 in #lightonyogasutras by #BKSIyengar πŸ™ŒπŸ½ πŸ™πŸ½βœ¨ Incredibly inspiring week with Patricia Walden and other amazing Iyengar practitioners exploring together, the pranayama sutras, #nirodhaparinama and so much dynamic deep courageous #sadhana. Here I am in the first phase of #padangustha #dhanurasana, next: learn to extend the groins, lift the root of the thigh much more! πŸ’œ #stepbystep #prana #consciousness #lineage #fly #spacious #magneticfield #energy #potential #freedom
