🐫 Let’s travel today, with the camel pose, Ustrasana.
✨ This backbend is a great heart opener allowing to relax the mind and find calmness and balance. It boosts shoulder flexibility and stretches the entire front of the body.
🤸🏻♂️ The feet can be flex, or pointed to go a little deeper into the posture. Send your hips to the front and push your sternum towards the sky, open your heart. 💛
No one can tell you how it’s supposed to feel.🔥
Your practice. Your mind. Your body. Your spirit. 🧿
Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.
Come get connected.

🌳 Let’s start off the weekend with a balance posture: the tree pose, or Vrksasana. Not as easy as it seems… Place your foot on your ankle, above your knee or on your inner thigh. And for the challenge, try closing your eyes!
🌪 Find here stability and anchoring just like a solidly rooted tree resisting storms.
🌟 Happy Monday!

✨ Yoga teaches us gratitude. Be grateful towards the teacher, towards the students who let you guide their practice, or towards your body that supports you everyday.
We often consider most things of the everyday life as granted, no longer paying much attention to them and realising their value.
🙏 So today let’s slow down, take a minute to remember something someone said or did to you, for which you are grateful, and truly appreciate it.
🤸🏻♂️What about getting upside down today?
⚡️Inversions energise a lot, which is exactly what we need on a Sunday morning.
⬆️The shoulderstand, or Salamba sarvangasana, is a posture accessible to most of us. It reduces fatigue, stimulates the thyroid, and stretches the shoulders and neck. Make sure to support your back with your hands, and keep you legs super dynamic!
Anuloma Viloma #wechselatmung #alternatenostrilbreathing
that‘s what i practiced here...for all those who have not seen my right hand and my head :)
I should probably change the camera setting next time
Gratitude - I am truly grateful for the people who have chosen to practice with me this year. If it was just once, or you continued your journey for the whole year - namaste.
It’s funny, part of the “job” of the yoga teacher is to make others feel good. But many times I have to admit I went to the classes a bit angry, stressed or a little bit frazzled recently (sorry mainly Tuesday people) and after the class, the energy I received during completely changed me. I can’t tell you. Thank you. There’s so much BS on IG about gratitude and how life is so wonderful all of the time - if this is seriously true, you are incredibly lucky, because in my experience it doesn’t matter how much yoga you can practice or looking at things in a positive light, life or situations seem sometimes damn right a bit sh*t, you’re in situations you dont want to be in, and you have bad days. Being a yoga teacher, I think people expect you to be airy fairy happy clappy person all of the time -.-.Nope I am a human.-.- I haven’t reached inlightenment - therefore it is mearly impossible not to be affected by day to day life. Yes I think everything happens for a reason, and the lessons you go through are because you need them - it’s the way you learn deal with it is and what you take from the experience - at the present time of possible, or on reflection the main thing.
When I step on my mat, I have a chance to sort it out. Let go. Stop thinking for one moment! Put the worlds to rights and feel better. After, the emotions may still be there but you can process them a bit better or differently. When I don’t have the opportunity to do that, and I come straight to a class with not a moment of peace in that day, the energy I get from the people who share their practice with me, I get that same piece of mind and good feels back. I really realised that. I love to teach and never believed I would ever say that or know this wonderful experience. SO THANK YOU 🙏

👊🏻Start the weekend like warriors with the warrior 2 posture, Virabhadrasana 2.
🛡Anchor your feet in the ground, bend your front leg at 90 degrees, tilt your pelvis, extend your arms and relax your shoulders. Look straight ahead, determined! 😁
This posture is very complete as it engages your thighs, abs, back and opens your hips.
✨Have a great weekend!
It’s here, you guys!! A super short & sweet practice to help you feel good and restored on all levels. I’ve massively enjoyed creating this and don’t think it could have come to completion at a better time. ✨For one, the winter is a perfect time for restorative yoga (a practice based on being passive, quiet, going within, and surrendering with the use of cozy props to get as comfortable as possible). ✨Two, yesterday was a new moon which is a time for turning inward, reflecting, and setting intentions, perfectly compatible with this grounding practice. ✨And of course, it’s the holiday season! Which can be a joyful time of love, giving, and enjoying the company of friends and family but also comes along with challenges, stress, and high expectations. There’s nothing wrong with certain seasons of the year being a little extra busy and demanding as long as we balance it out with downtime, self care, and restorative practices.
This guided meditation and restorative yoga practice gives you an opportunity to tune it, get grounded, reconnect to your unchanging essence, and remember what really matters.
It reminds you to take time for yourself, to be still, and fill up from the inside out so that you can better be there for the people in your life. When you take care of you first, when you feel full and rested, you are much more likely to be present with your loved ones, and more deeply enjoy and appreciate the holiday season, and life in general!
You can download this 15 minute practice on my website now at simplysophi.com. *link in bio*
I’d love to hear how this goes for you!! Sending all the love ✨🎄❤️
🤗 The week-end is almost there! Let’s prepare for it with the chair pose, Utkatasana.
🛋 Hips to the back, absorb your navel and tilt your pelvis, open your chest and breathe, just as if you were comfortably sitting on your sofa 😅
🔥 You might feel your thighs, just a tiny bit! No pain, no gain, so hang in there!
⏱How long can you hold it?

Lass die Erwartungen, die du an dich stellst wenigstens mal für einen kurzen Moment los. Schieb auch die Erwartungen die andere an dich stellen zur Seite.
Mir helfen Vorbeugen dabei, bei mir anzukommen und den inneren Stress abzubauen. Außerdem lässt es sich nach ein paar Vorbeugen viel besser schlafen :)
🎶 Inhale, straighten the spine, look forward and retract your shoulders. Ardha uttanasana.
😌 This posture usually feels very good. It is part of the sun salutation and allows to take a deep breath in.
🌾 Happy Thursday!
🌉 It’s Wednesday, open your heart and bridge from the beginning of the week to the soon upcoming weekend!
🌈 Easy: engage everything!
😁 And when you feel the posture is loosening a bit, give a little push in the hips and hold for 5 more seconds! Thighs, bum, abs, everything works here. Straighten your neck to breathe nicely.

Attention ladies 💃🏼
Did you know that yoga can be a huge help during that time of the month?!! 🧘♀️ Whether it’s to calm frazzled nerves or relieve cramps (or both;) yoga is an amazing tool for self care anytime.. but especially during your monthly time 💞
You don’t need to do anything fancy.. just a knees wide child’s pose, supine twist, cat-cow or rocking gently side to side while hugging your knees to chest are some great and helpful options 👌🏻✨ I like to add to the experience by warming my homemade lavender flax pillow (use on tummy or over eyes -not too hot) as well as lightning a candle, playing some calming music and using one of my supportive essential oil blends (this one has clary sage, lavender, bergamot, Roman chamomile, and geranium just to name a few that are great for women’s support) #morningyoga #menstrualcramps #essentialoilsforhealing
🔥This one... everyone loves it!! Plank pose, or folakasana.
Shoulders over wrists, protract in your shoulders, push against the ground with your fingers, draw your navel in, engage your quads, heels over toes, and hold for 10, 9, 8... yayyy you did it ! 🎉
💪🏻This posture is great to build core strength. Do it every day (30s, 45s, 1min...) and it will help your practice super quickly!
⏱Tell us how long you hold it!
🌟Today’s posture is the high lunge, also called crescent pose or Anjaneyasana in Sanskrit.
💦Hang in there, straighten the back leg, bend the front knee, engage your core, lift your arms up in the air... and breathe 😄
Enjoy, relax and feel how grounded you are in this posture, how the energy from the Earth goes from your feet all the way up to the tip of of your fingers. 🌍💥💫
✨Have a wonderful week!
🧘♀️ When you keep practicing, everything comes.
✨ That’s true in yoga, especially when you practice asanas. We can get frustrated not to be able to enter in a posture for instance. But with practice, patience, regularity and care, it all comes. One day you try the posture again and hooray you manage it!!😃
🌸 That is also true for your every day life, and for everything. It’s a learning from the yoga lifestyle. Will, perseverance, and confidence.
🔽Voici le triangle!
🤔Pas évident comme posture, on a tendance refermer le buste sur la jambe avant au lieu de l’ouvrir.
💫Allez, on allonge le flanc, on tend les jambes, on absorbe le nombril et on ouvre le cœur au ciel!!💪🏻💖
