Andrea Sauter 🇩🇪🇪🇺  🤓 believes in Universe’s intelligence 🥑 heals with healthy food 🧘🏻‍♀️ finds joy through yoga 🌐 Certified KatonahYoga® teacher 🇩🇪 👉🏼 @yoga.trinity 👈🏼

Some Tuesday fun with what seems like myriads of lunge variations. Although it feels like a Monday for me 😂. And some of you might even feel like Wednesday posting Goddess Pose already 🤣. But seriously, please wait until the host of the day posted. It simply shows good manner.

For Day 6 of #MayYouShineBright Suzie brought us an incredible deep variation for our lunge day (and I always hear "lunch day" in my head. Anyone else? 🙈😂) and I go with this sweet hip opener adding a slight backbend .. perfect for prepping your backbend practice. Did you know that the German word Lunge means lungs? Do you think it's a coincidence that this pose is meant for opening these breathing organs for you? In Katonah Yoga the thighs are the lungs of your legs. In opening them you open your windows so you can breathe properly. And oxygen is all we need, don't we? Without breathing you die. It's as simple as that.

Let your heart shine bright today in remembrance of all of those close to our hearts that passed way too early.

Please check in with my sweet co-hosts for their variations. Robin is up next so check in with her later tonight for some sparkling goddess inspo.

As a teacher, challenges that teach sit very dear to my heart. I love that so many had progressed in a weeks time. Maybe it didn’t look like it but I know many of y’all felt it. Which to me is more important than the way it looks. ❤❤

Thank you so, so much for joining us on this twisty journey. And now that you have some tools to help your twists and binds, I hope that you continue to use them to further your practice. 🤓🤓

And now for the Winners of #mayyoutwistandbind 🎉🎉🎉

A fold and a twist .. if you follow me for a bit you already know that this is my absolut favourite to play with 🤩.

For Day 5 of #MayYouShineBright I invite you to explore any variation of a Forward Fold. Include a twist or not. Change angle or not. No matter what you do ... Shine your light upon this pose. Can’t wait what you will come up with ✨.

This #twistedandmingle💎 is inspired by the ever so amazing @renny_sito ❤️ Hope you’re all having fun and see you all in the gallery 💋

It’s the last day 😩 I begged the hosts to prolong this challenge, or at least a bonus day. Nada. But they said they will do another round 🤩. I’m so in for another round. Who’s with me?

Thank you, sweet hosts for this amazing challenge. The gallery is spectacular. Spending my time there has been a fountain of joy. It’s been more than just fun to have played with all the triangles 🔺🔻🔺.

Day 7 of of #TriYourAsana is #balanceangle and it reminds me of the !Narra Beetle when catching drops of water out of the fog 🤣.

Love me some hamstring poses. For Day 4 of #MayYouShineBright Holly gave us such a pretty compass pose. I totally saved it in my inspo collection 🤩.

Thought a change of perspective would do me some good 😂. Can’t wait to see what kind of compass variation you will share with us. Shine bright and lead us the way 🔆.

I’m up next. Check in with me tonight for some twisty folding inspo 🌀.

Ok, this shape is amazing and I love it ❤️. Day 6 (Saturday) of of #TriYourAsana is #straddleboat ⛵️

Did you know 🤓: The Bermuda Triangle is a mythical section of the Atlantic Ocean roughly bounded by Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico where dozens of ships and airplanes have disappeared. Boats and planes have seemingly vanished from the area in good weather without even radioing distress messages. Not one of the myriad theories ever proofed that mysterious disappearances occur more frequently there than in other well-traveled sections of the ocean. In fact, people navigate the area every day without incident🔺🔻🔺.

I get lost in looking all that up. Who’s with me?

Today is all about exteeeeeeension in every direction. Day 3 of #MayYouShineBright is any kind of Split #MonkeyPose 🐒 Please check out Seon’s post for some awesome modifications. 🌸

I added a twist to it. It helps a lot to keep the hips square. If you are up for middle splits go for it. A split is a split is a split .. and now I have to think of Banana Splits haha 😂. Please prepare your body for backbends and warm up your hamstrings and hips. Shine bright, little monkeys 🐒🐵.

You can tell that I am obsessed with this challenge 🤩. This is my third (and last) post today. My third. I haven’t posted that many pics in one day in eons 😂. I’m sorry not sorry but I couldn’t wait until tomorrow.

Day 5 (Friday) of #TriYourAsana is #kneeyourdog inspired by @jadebellyyoga ❤️

Triangle Fact: Any other shape is less stable. Rectangles become parallelograms. The absolutely strongest angle is an equilateral triangle with three 60 degree angles 🤓.

If you’ve ever been to a Katonah Yoga class you will most likely hear the instruction „come into Down Dog, which is a 60° triangle“. 🤗.

Have y’all a great Friday night. It’s time for me to hit the hay. G’nite IG 💋

What a lovely first day we had. It was so nice to see all the different variations of a headstand 🌸

Day 2 of #MayYouShineBright is #DancerPose #Natarajasana brought to us by the lovely Robin 🌸
⠀⠀
I decided to use a chair and simply call it a lazy dancer 😂. A chair always reminds me of Flashdance and I just hope it makes me shine a bit brighter. Choose any variation with or without a chair, a strap, wide open, low or high up and shine bright 🌟

It’s Friday again 🤩 and we will have a long weekend here. I can't wait for three days off. Have fun trying this #reversetreepose Holly brought us for week 7 of #YogiHowdYouDoThatFridays 😎. Please check out her post with amazing instructions, a keeping it real and a how to vid 🎥.

I have to admit this is not my pose ... yet. I can't grab that knee at all. I tried it on the other side and I couldn't move that left hip the way I would have needed to open that hip. The best shot I got was whilst coming out of it 😂.

I will be up next week with the next pose. Keep sending us DMs with a pose you'd like to see here on Fridays and don’t forget to check in with the best co-hosts ever for their take 😍.

Such a graceful shape for Day 4 (Thursday) of #TriYourAsana is #chillangle inspired @stephaniekicksbutt ❤️

Triangle facts: Triangle shapes are often used in construction because of their great strength.

Do you use this idea for your yoga practice? I do, Katonah Yoga does, and I am pretty sure if you look for them you’ll see them everywhere a strong structure is needed🔺

Here we go. Our beautiful Suzie is kicking off our shining bright challenge with a killer of a headstand.

Day 1 of #MayYouShineBright is #headstand #sirsasana 🌸 Choose a variation and shine bright 🌟

I chose this twisty variant just because I never did it before. I love to try new shapes. Every time I get out of a new pose I feel that heat of excitement. Tell me what makes you feel excited about poses?
