Here is the transition from seated to the full arm balance of Astavakrasana. Start by sitting tall, preferably doing some hip openers and hamstring stretches before hand, on the leg you put over your arm. Once the hip is warmed up, place the leg high up on your arm or even shoulder if possible. Once there, grip the leg to your arm and ground your hands, ready for lift off. To lift your buttocks off the floor you must engage your pelvic floor and press the earth and lift. Then draw the leg that is still on the floor up and inwards toward your body, but yet extend out aswell with active feet (Rooting and rising). This is an intermediate arm balance and a challenge itself. If you succeeded to lift off completely, then take your extended leg and hook that ankle over the other and quickly bend your arms to a 90 degree angle(elbows) and hug the legs tightly inwards on the arm using your inner thighs. Now it's an advanced pose and beautiful indeed.#transitiontoastavakrasana #yolandasyoga #yogabody

No relax Sunday mornings for me...I teach two yoga classes this morning. Started with stretching my hips and back from twerking Friday, the muscles used alot in twerking are your lower back and glute muscles, aswell as your hips...so I felt tight this morning, needed a release. Now I'm good to go, and my students will get their stretch on too!😊

Yoga on a bar! Why not? Yeah I don't drink, and I could care less about bars and the energy that resonates from them....but when there is no place to yoga with your girls, and your offered an empty bar to practice; you take that offer! We had a fun time practicing together, I taught them and then we had fun practicing poses in not so yoga like places. Being willing to try new things, opens you up to different possibilities.

Roar!!....lions breath with a deep goddess squat. Great when you wanna feel like a badass woman. Stimulates the hips and exercises the vocal cords, facial muscles and legs, feet and pelvic foor. Many practitioners, don't practice face yoga. The muscles of the face also need strength and flexibility, to stay fit and young." Any place where oxygen flows, energy grows".

Love this simple pose but effective abdominal, chest, back and hip stretch. Crocodile pose is easy but when done currently is a fabulous juicy stretch. Looking up to the stars and skies with unlimited perspective and view.

I'm going to do this today....at one point....nude...on the beach! 28 degrees, hot, no clouds and I'm going to the nude beach today, Yaaay! So excited to do nothing for hours but sun bathing, swimming, floating, eating and relaxing. Much needed after all I went through.I deserve it!

Great simple stretch. Calming and focused. Stretches the quads, shins and ankles; and works the shoulders and arms too. After changing both sides of arms, you could always lie all the way back in reclining hero. Sit on a block if it is too intense or your buttocks does not fully ground between your legs.

So it's clear my Left arm is still a bit weaker than my right....but I still can do a one arm handstand! In fact everyday my strength gets better and my mind/body connection increased. My control via my core muscles is making more and more sense as I practice. I could now more often than not balance in my handstands and stay for a bit. I can also press up a bit and slow down even better on my way down. I love watching my own progress. Working to be the best I could be!

I taught this beautiful woman how to do this...she took that information and rose another level up! She tests herself, like I knew she would. She is a lot like me in ways😉.So here she is @ymywha before my class, practicing handstand and transitioning to scorpion. Takes a lot of mind and body control. Takes a quiet mind and focus. You need back flexibility and strength. It's just bad ass; she is so badass!...so grateful to be her teacher, and most of all Best friend. Love you babe.

Absolutely love the fluid lines and shapes the body can create, when the temple doors are open. Stiffness and tension in the body, or lack of flexibility are a direct result of a RIGID mental state. A flexible body is the result of a flexible state of mind. We, however often want to separate our bodies from our minds, but every limited and restricted thought you think, makes you more and more tense. You can't separate the two....neither can you separate the spirit from both the mind and body. So what does a stiff body and mind do to the spirit, of which wants to rise, expand and grow? It dulls the light. Limits your spirit, to this physical dimension, and makes it harder and harder to transfer energy between you and others; as well as God. Open the body...open the mind, and watch your spirit fly!

This was the view only halfway to the natural springs and spa of Mexico...The drive up and down is insane, not only do you have to stop many times to absorb the beauty, but the drive is on small roads, with little to no protection of falling over, sharp turns and snaking roads. However as a lover of driving and nature...again well worth the drive!

Practiced a solid 45 minutes in the center of Old Queretaro, in a gazebo. Was beautiful out, Great energy, totally enjoyed my practice. My body was asking for some serious yoga. Gathered some attention at some points, as not everyone is use to seeing advanced poses and such focus. Here I'm practicing headstand from wide leg forward bend.

Yoga in an old stadium. The sound in the middle was super loud and clear. Sounds like your talking through a microphone. Breathing in yoga here, truly sounds like waves! Bound half moon anyone?

Doing some poses and stretches before I teach my corporate clients at BATH MAAX. Did backends the day before, so my back was very open. How refreshing.

Handstand combined with wheel. I popped up into this one without the wall...balanced...and then choose to drop behind to challenge my backbends. And then popped back up! I'm loving how strong I'm getting for handstand.😆

I absolutely love this little sequence of poses! I have seen #dylanwerner do it and I was hooked. I already love all the poses in the sequence...putting them together is fabulous! Requires strong balance, flexibility and core strength. The hardest is to rise up from the low balance pose to warrior three; you need to engage your pelvic floor and hip flexor, to pull the extended leg back up and out, without your hands. Try it!
