#Kurmasana #TortoisePose 🐢 Pratyahara is the threshold to your inner world. Your mind becomes less reactive to the distractions of the world around you, and as a result, you feel quiet and centered. Like the tortoise, you experience pratyahara in this pose by drawing the limbs of your perception—your eyes, ears, skin, nose, mouth, and consequently your mind—into the shell of the limitless landscape within you. It is must be amazing to have a shell. 😊 Happy Tuesday, beautiful friends! . . . My leggings : @wear.am For Ambassador’s 15%!disc.

When the world gets too much ...withdraw away into your shell like a Tortoise ⭐️ - -This is a wonderful way to escape from the troubles of everyday. By doing the Tortoise forward bend, leaning into your lap and cupping hands around the ankles the mind is instantly calmed, quietened and removed from the external distractions. Breathe in the inner peace of a tortoise in its shell shutting out the world to take a breather and rejuvenate. - -This can be followed by the counter pose Reverse Plank which will strengthen the entire body focusing on the core muscles. Enforcing confidence by opening the heart and chest. Getting you ready for the next challenges ahead. It sends a signal that says you’re strong 👉you can do this. - -Tortoise pose (Kurmasana) Strengthens the shoulders, stretches and lengthens the spine, helps to withdraw the inner senses, quietens the mind, has calming and centered affect. - -Reverse Plank pose (Purvottanasana) Strengthens entire front of body, including shoulders, arms, hips, legs, glutes and core muscles. (If practicing pose for first time keep head raised infront looking forward. Once practiced and comfortable in the pose can gradually tilt head back) 🙏☀️ #yogainspiration #tortoisepose #kurmasana #soothing #centered #escape #calmmind #reverseplank #purvottanasana #strengthening #strongspine #coreworkout #coremuscles #forwardbend #backbend #counterpose #pratyahara #yogaposes #practiceyoga #yogafit #yogaway #yogalondon #yogaportugal #yogamalaga #malagacity #malagacentro #malaga

Some of my favorite forward bend yoga poses ! In order of appearance : bitilasana (cow’s pose), marjaryasana (cat’s pose), balasana (child’s pose), uttana shishosana (extended puppy pose), kapotasana (pigeon’s pose), janu sirsasana (head to knee forward bend), upavistha konasana (wide-angle seated forward bend), kurmanasana (tortoise’s pose).
This physical practice barely touches the surface of the real possibilities of yoga. Slowly learning to let go 🐢 To release muscles, to quite distractions, to free fear, to find strength in softness 💪 . . . #yoga #morethanasana #yogiforlife #kurmasana #tortoisepose #forwardfold #yogapose #turninginward #yogamom #yogamum #practicenotperfection #practiceandalliscoming #practicenotperformance #yogiofinstagram #yogaeverydamnday #letgo #freefear

Going to a new fitness class can be intimidating! But the most challenging version of poses aren’t usually whipped out your first class, they are achievements to work towards through your practice and will help to increase your self-efficacy along the way. It’s all a part of the journey! To start your quest to balance and bliss come see me at Olympic Gym! Also available are Butts n Guts classes (not the official name but I personally like the ring it has) and Cycling classes! OR— if you’re towards the city and interested in cycling, you can also find me at @revocycle the #1 cycling studio in the entire country for a safe, effective and enjoyable mind/body cycling experience!
Day 14 #purplevalleyyogachallenge2018 chapter 1 well I think I resonate more with the tools patanjali gives to make the mind more tranquil I love the 4 keys friendship, compassion , delight and disregard those help keep our mind at peace and makes us better human beings without compromising our own peace of mind also I really like how persistent is about how much we need to practice for a long time to get little sparkles of samadhi the amount of solutions it gives for us to practice is priceless @larugayoga @purplevalleyyoga #yoga #yogasutras #kurmasana #tortoisepose #larugayoga

9 complex asanas made easier on a Gurugrid. 😍 Some poses are not that simple. How close to place hands & feet? In one line or not?

"I sit before flowers hoping they will train me in the art of opening up. I stand on mountain tops believing that avalanches will teach me to let go. I know nothing but I am here to learn." -Shane Koyczan We have so much to learn from nature 🐢 #tortoisepose #greensandbeach #blacksandbeach

“The most important thing is practice in daily life that is how we can gradually get to know the true value of whatever teaching we follow. What we need is a good heart, a disciplined mind and a healthy body. We will not transform ourselves merely by making wishes, but through working hard over a long period of time.” The Dalai Lama, in the Foreword to “Core of the Yoga Sūtras” by B.K.S. Iyengar. Tonight the advanced class at Iyengar Yoga Center of Grand Rapids explores the deep abdominal strength that releases and allows the spreading of the back body through the practice of deep forward extensions __ . “The only thing you get is right now.” —Manouso Manos __ “When seeds are buried in the earth, their inward secrets become the flourishing garden.” Rumi, Mathnawi I. 175-177.
Want to bind in Kurmasana? Do this! YINIFIED Utanasana Variation ☯️ This shape is great for releasing tension through the shoulders and across the back of the collar bones. When you do this before your more dynamic practice the facial adhesions that restrict movement to extend and internal rotate the arms are unpinned. The result - you’ll have a greater range of motion 🐢 ⭐️stand with feet comfortable and stable distance apart ⭐️bend your knees and fold forward from the hips 🧡if your lower back is sore then bend your knees more and rest your elbows on your thighs or do legs up the wall pose instead ⭐️interlace the fingers behind your back with your palms facing your body ⭐️ only use enough pressure between the fingers to keep the hands interlaced but otherwise relax your arms and shoulders as much as you can - so the shoulders drop down towards the floor ⭐️soften just behind the collar bones ⭐️hold for 3-5 minutes (obviously this time is dependent on the flexibility of your back body - so work within your ability, if the hold need to be shorter make them shorter and increase the time slowly over a number of weeks ⭐️when you come out, come down to the floor, so you don’t feel dizzy 😵 Relax for a few minutes before you jump up and get flowing towards Tortoise Pose 😊🐢😊🐢😊🐢😊🐢😊 Tonight’s yin class @theyogasanctuary At 7:30 Danforth will focus on the shoulders and neck ☺️ 📸 by @thebenstudio Shot @torontoyogamamas

DETAIL + DEPTH | This is the peak pose, Firefly Pose. Bring the effort and learning of the previous poses in the sequence into this final pose. ⁣ ⁣ To take the pose, take a wide-legged Uttanasana with bent knees. Place the hands on low blocks shoulder-width apart. Wedge the shoulderes as high up between the legs as possible. Bend the elbows and "sit" on the back of the arms. This will lower the hips and make it easier to get the legs closer to the shoulders. Straighten the legs, then the arms. Press down through strong hands and widen the space at the back of the heart. Stay and breathe, then rest. (Slide 2)⁣ ⁣ For a similar pose, take Kurmasana | Tortoise Pose. Even though there is ample contact between the body and the floor, it is anything but easy. For some, it make actually be more difficult than coming into to the similarly shaped pose, Firefly, if one is to go for straight(ish) legs. Pretend to lift the arms up into the legs even as the legs straighten down into the arms. This will produce a push/pull action that both forces the upper back to round in kyphosis, and the collarbones to widen against that pressure. Stay and breathe.

Day 14 of the #purplevalleyyogachallenge2018 wtih @larugayoga and @purplevalleyyoga ~ our asana is Kurmasana (Tortoise Pose), and our sutras were a review: ❉ We have reached the end of Book One of the Yoga Sutras (the portion on contemplation), and the next post will take us into book two, which is the portion on practice. I admit: for a long time, I put off a complete reading and study of the sutras because I felt this scripture was just too esoteric and likely no longer relevant in modern culture - but, I was wrong. I've thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself in Patanjali's sutras, often reading them over and over again, until I feel that I've truly absorbed the lesson. ❉ There was one sutra in particular, along with the commentary offered by Sri Swami Satchidananda, that particularly stuck with me: sutra 1.30, which lists the nine obstacles that can get in the way of reaching samādhi. For me, the greatest barriers to my own self realization have (so far) been: doubt, failure to reach firm ground and slipping from the ground gained. That last one in particular hit me hard - I completely relate to losing major ground over the past decade, even (and most difficultly) with my yoga practice. The majority of my 20s were really challenging, and it's only been in recent years, with the love and support of my partner @cam.lowen , a daily yoga practice, and an unwavering commitment to expanding my consciousness, that I've been able to regain that lost ground and stand firmly rooted in the centre of my Self. ❉ Sri Swami Satchidanada suggests that losing ground is very common, and if we understand that, we won't become so disheartened and give up all together. Here, he offers a gentle reminder that slipping might just be part of the process, and if we remembered that our minds and attitudes naturally fluctuate with our circumstances, we probably wouldn't be so hard on ourselves. He compares yoga practice to an obstacle race, and explains that we're strengthened by overcoming our own set of obstacles on the path. I just love that. *You might be down, but you're not out.*
