Day 3 of #ArmbalancedFun
is eight angle pose or #Ashtavakrasana
. Getting more stable and controlled over time. .
NEW CHALLENGE 😍
From June 15th- 24th 🎉
The key to balance a yoga posture is not only finding the right position and angle, but also reacting as fast as any change happens during that posture. If you're not able to do both, you will fall. The same in life. If you're not in your perfect state, things can get shaky and if you're not able to respond the right way, you will fall. But is it really that bad to fall?? Like in a yoga posture you only learn from the times in life that you fall. It's the only way to really get better, to improve and to grow. So actually, we should be afraid of NOT falling. Failing, then moving on and doing something different to see if this works better. Doing exactly this, over and over again, that's the key to success.
So don't be afraid of falling. Let's do this all together! Let's fall and grow together! Join us for 9 days. We have chosen 9 asanas that requires and improves your balance, strength and flexibility. 🤸💪
We can't wait to fall a million times with you and to stand up stronger and wiser each time. 😍

As yogis, we choose to move conciously. Using props in your practice, will help deepen and explore new variations. ‘Hey but, all those advanced yogis, they don’t use props, do they?’ Wrong! - Advanced - yogis are those who embrace who they are and where their practice is at, props and all!
and me in our challenge of incorporating the #powerofprops
into your practice.
Win? A weekend at the @yogaland
festival, AND a complete Decathlon yoga-kit (mat of choice, bolster, block and strap)
What to do?

I’m very drawn to the colour purple lately.
Probably to do with my ongoing quest for equanimity and to be one with the world. 💜
This colour is the contrast between the calm stability of blue and fierce energy of red. The balance we try to find in life.
It’s the colour of the #crownchakra
and spirituality/or of people seeking spiritual fulfilment. 🕉
Purple also represents transformation, creativity, wisdom, dignity, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, protection, independence, and magic. 🔮
I thought of you whilst writing all of this. You know I just adore your pretty peaceful purple head! ☂️

Mutluluk, sosyal yapıların size dayatılmış beklentilerine boyun eğmek değil, kalbinizi, ruhunuzu, bedeninizi hoşnut eden şeyi yapmaktır.
MUTLU OLMAK KENDİNİZ OLMAKTIR.
Bir başkasının kopyası olmaktan kim mutlu olabilir ki?
Onda bir mutluluk yoktur, sadece mutluluk taklidi vardır.
El ele, göz göze, çok değerli bir zamanda yasiyoruz.
Zaman, icerigi ve kapsadigi ile birlikte degisiyor;
dna’larımızdan titresimimize her bedende ve alanda biz de uyumla donusuyoruz.
Bu mesih bilincine, yeniye gecisimizde; onceden bastirilan, yok sayilan, oteye itilen, utanilan, duyulmayan her ne duygu varsa manyetik alanda, kollektifin toplu tek alaninda;
her biri tipki suan bireysel alanda yasadigimiz gibi bir bir yuzeye yanasip oradan ozgurlesiyor. Ozgurlesmeden hemen once de derinden bir bakmak ve yolcu etmek gerekiyor.
Gununun icinde, aile iliskilerinde, sokakta deneyimlediklerinde ve medyada gorduklerinde halen sertlik, nefret, ofke, korku, duzensizlik hakim olabilir.
Bunlar kalan son dalga 😌
Çok guzel insanlar, muhtesem degerler yaratan ruhlar, saf sevgide bir suru kalpler var. Yurdun her kosesinde, her kapi esiginde. HAK ettigimizi ve emek gosterdigimizi yasayacagiz.
Bu hafta secimimiz var.
Oy kullanmak ve kullanmamak; ikisinin de hem evrende hem kalbinde hem de goreceklerinde ve kendi yasaminda deneyimleyeceklerinde karsiligi bolca olacak. Karari ne yonde kullandiginin da...
Gel , bizlere yakisan, yeniye uyan, esitlikci ve kardesce yoneten, bizi bizim icin yonlendiren bir ekip secelim. Gel sahip cikalim. Gel yaratalim. Emek yoksa, senin elin ortada yoksa, yaratim da olmaz kardesim.
Cumhuriyet’in 100. Yilina yelken acmisken, 100 senelik bir gelisim ve inanc gosterelim.
İnanc, arzu ve emek; tek ihtiyacimiz olan.
Yasami, seni, beni, seveni sevmeyeni, herkesi seviyorum.
İyi ve huzurlu olalim,
Muhtesem haftalar 🌸
Sometimes you need a perspective change! Sometimes we even must do it to break the boundaries we build, to understand smth, to create a new space etc.
Being in a yoga world can provoke expectations which will hurt you after time. I had to make many experiences and meet many people to understand they are people, in a first line, only some of them want to live yogic philosophy, only few of them care about ethic principles.
Yes, I was disappointed, but hey, why was I? Because I was blinded by my idealistic imagination. As soon as I let it go and said to myself they are all people, treat them like people, not like yogis everything changed.
I understand - on my journey only counts if I care about how I live, how do I treat people, what intentions I put in my words, acts etc.
It may sound pathetic but after my wounds were healed I can really feel gratitude being treated by “friends” or “yogis” in that way. They were polishing my inner diamond which can now shine more then ever.
The journey is endless, I know I have so much to learn, but on this point I am grateful for lessons I already got. For lessons, not for those mean people or stupid circumstances. I still know I don’t want them in my life again.

Sıkışmış hissedersin bazen . Aslında pozun içerisindesindir. Hayat denilen oyunun bir An'ında. Bir halde olmaktasındır. Sıkışık belki ama öğretici . Nasıl olsa geçecek emin ol ve başka bir hal gelecek. Derste pozlar ardısıra gelir ya... Rahat ol, en son hep savasana...
Who else is sore from the weekend? Excited about these world cup games ⚽️⚽️ that are delivering the show? Shoutout to the operational teams again & kuddos to Mexico for this win after a battle to remember against Germany 👏🏾🙌🏾!!
is one of my favorite stretches and one of those moves that is judge of how my body feels in the morning.
Since I'm lucky enough to be able to elongate my spine in this pose, I'm almost always practising it with props like yoga blocks as shown in pic 1.
Today, I was missing an inch to squeeze the second one but nevertheless, my back felt great 🙂.
Swipe left to see the acro version of this pose with @marjorie_a75
as a human prop on me. Hey girl 😉😉
A woman who knows herself truly, is indeed an empowering and beautiful sight. Each of us have a story; a series of events, life experiences, struggles, pain & elation that makes us who we are. No one soul walks the same path nor should she have the desire to tread upon another’s footsteps. •
Day 1 Renew Retreat Bali, we inhaled the distance waft of incense as the sun rose before us. We opened our hearts with the divine @yogicha
and we come together to connect, to nurture and to seek our truth xx
