Finally unstuck 🖤
. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀
So often we get stuck in a vicious cycle of not feeling enough, feeling down, feeling guilty about feeling down and then beating ourselves up about not being enough again
. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀
For me it took an Instagram friend (thank you @remoterenegade
), a bath and a self love and acceptance meditation to finally bring my self back to balance 🙌🏾 I feel like I can breathe again! Although I still get sucked into the ups and downs of life- it’s always important to remember that literally everyone is experiencing them too, and to know that it’s how life is supposed to be. To push us, to challenge us and to force us to grow! 🍃

Phew, what a week- thank goodness it’s Fridaaaaaaay 🖤🙌🏾👏🏾
Komme immer wieder an und über deine Grenzen hinaus, jedoch nur du allein.
Lasse niemanden an deine gesetzten Grenzen heran oder überschreiten, denn das lässt dich zerbrechen.
💖👌 Coming up to and beyond your limits again and again , but only you alone.
Don't let anyone approach or cross your set limits, because that makes you pone and weak. 🙈
EN/RU 🔸 THANK YOU 🙏🏻 my dearest friends, thank you for all your beautiful and soul-filling words and wishes!!

Life has been pretty busy recently and there hasn’t been much time to stop and check in with myself, I started to notice the build up of tiredness and emotions- I just did a Yin flow from the incredible @dylanwerneryoga
... wow my hips were tight!
For centuries Yogis have believed that our emotions can get trapped in our bodies, that’s why physical excise is so good for the mind and the body. Science and biology is also starting to recognise the correlation between the body and the mind. The book “the body keeps the score” looks at the research behind this in detail and Dr Bessel Van der Kolk says “‘We had better results with yoga in people with chronic PTSD than any medication that I or anybody else had ever studied,”.
The people I’m working with in SA have experienced a lot of trauma, whether it’s sexual abuse, living in danger or having HIV there is a lot that their bodies and minds are processing or maybe burying. It wasn’t a surprise to see that when I’m working with people who have significant sexual trauma, they also have such tight hips. My students now laugh at me as we are always focusing on opening our hips.
My personal favourite hip openers are bound angle or butterfly as you can see here, lizard or pigeon pose. Great to practice when you have a few quiet moments.

🐾 with Sonny boy
I read a quote this week that said “in times of healing change happens”
and I couldn’t agree more !! Whether it’s mental healing > emotional healing > behavioural healing > physical healing ....... the 3 days I’ve spent ‘doing me’ topping me up, resting, napping, bingeing on Netflix, the virus has gone and I feel stronger .... in my body, my mind, my heart and soul. It’s like I feel pieced together tighter 🎀
I’ve also got a new love for #planks
as they are helping my core + pelvis get strong without ❌ any pains! 🙌🏼 However you spend today I hope it’s a good one friends 💋
Ps. You #yogimum
out there how do you do it?!?? Sonny is like this every time I’m on the mat and he’s a 10month pup 🙈 I get about 10mins and give up!! You ladies are magicians to me 🌟
A dōTERRA® não abre mão da qualidade.
Ao se tentar reproduzir o procedimento de extração de óleos essenciais, o vapor pode circular muito rápido, com temperatura muito alta ou por muito tempo. Consequentemente, outros compostos podem se misturar na destilação.
Existem compostos que se parecem com óleos essenciais, por exemplo, as qualidades aromáticas da versão sintética e química do óleo essencial Wintergreen acompanham de perto as qualidades da versão certificada e pura do mesmo óleo. É muito difícil detectar as diferenças entre os dois quando julgados apenas por seu aroma.
A dōTERRA® usa métodos de testes adicionais que asseguram a consistência e a potência dos óleos essenciais em 100% das vezes em que eles são produzidos. Pelos padrões dōTERRA®, um óleo essencial com certificado de pureza deve conter apenas compostos aromáticos, e precisa ter sido obtido a uma proporção, uma temperatura e em um período de tempo consistentes para que sua qualidade seja garantida.
Algumas empresas extraem óleos essenciais muito bons, mas a dōTERRA® não para por aí.

Ogni volta che inserisco questo asana nei miei flow a lezione sento di prendermi tante di quelle maledizioni dai miei allievi 🤣
È effettivamente una posizione impegnativa, perchè "tira tutto". Il respiro tende a farsi più corto, il collo si irrigidisce e tutto quello a cui riusciamo a pensare è ommioddio ma quanto tempo ancora devo vivere questo straziooo!
Ogni volta che faticate in una posizione cercate di portare il respiro proprio là dove sentite maggiore tensione. L'aria espande, lenisce, allenta. È per quello che respirare nello yoga è fondamentale. Immaginate il respiro come il muscolo per eccellenza. Se non lo attivo tutti i miei movimenti diventano deboli e superficiali.
Le posizioni che ci risultano insopportabili sono spesso quelle di cui abbiamo maggior bisogno.
Ecco quindi appurato che lo faccio per il vostro bene, non mandatemi all'inferno quando dico Parsvottanasana💙💚💛😍
Parsvottanasana it's not very popular among my students🤣 I feel when I pronounce this name they start insulting me in their head 🤣
Indeed it's quite a challenging pose because every muscle is stretching here, and often the only thing one can think of is 'oh my God when this is going to end". When you find yourself in such feelings, try to bring your breath in the area you feel most of the tension comes from: the air you bring in with your breath it's a balm, it brings sweetness and relaxes the muscles. That's why it's so important to breath in yoga: it's like our breathe is the most important muscle, and without activating it every move feels like weak and shallow.
Yoga great ...
How to handstand away from the wall🔥
Can you find balance using the wall? Are you wondering if you’re stuck at the wall? I was stuck at the wall for longer than I’d like to admit, like more than a decade 🤦🏻♀️ But once I decided I wanted to find balance in the center of the room, I learned in 1 month. Here’s how I did it:
🤸🏼♂️First you do need to be able to balance, so if you can’t balance, you either need the wall or a spot until you can hold a handstand for a few breathes at the wall or with spotter. If you can, it’s time to move away from the wall if you’re only using it as a security.
🤸🏼♂️ measure a leg’s distance away from the wall so that way you know if you need it the wall is there
🤸🏼♂️ kick up repeatedly. Every single time your foot hits the wall, come down immediately. I mean it. Oh I know you’ll be like but I got all the way up there, this is going to be a good one. Nope. Come down. Why? By using the wall, you have trained your foot to find the wall and fall out of handstand! You need to train it now to not search for the wall. Trust me.
🤸🏼♂️then an interesting thing will happen. Your foot will stop searching for the wall and you will balance away from the wall
🤸🏼♂️ once you’re comfortably at the wall not using the wall, it’s time to move away from the wall😇
🤸🏼♂️ move to the center of the room or outside on grass. Practice small little cartwheel like movements to which ever side feels natural to fall out
🤸🏼♂️ kick up and intentionally fall out - focusing on a graceful controlled fall out with this cartwheel shape
🤸🏼♂️ now, handstand balance!

Early rises aren't my favourites but after headstanding (another word for our dictionary 😉) in the local church courtyard everything seems brighter in my 🌎 I am in such a happy mood today and it is an amazing feeling 🥰 How are you today? Are you excited for the weekend? ♥️ #beeayogi
I will never understand why this is called cow face pose🤷🏼♀️.. regardless of the name, it's a gentle stretch for the outer hips. I think it's the coolest thing switching from one leg to the other by turning in a complete circle, is that just me?😬
Nunca entenderé porqué esta postura se llama cara de vaca 🤷🏼♀️..A pesar de todo, es un estiramiento perfecto para el exterior de las caderas. Pienso que es muy chulo la transición entre esta postura en una pierna a la otra por una gira de un círculo, ¿soy la única que piensa así?😬

Beauty and kindness come from within and can't help but radiate out.
One amazing way to tap into a high vibration is with mantra. The sacred sound current can uplift you even if you are just listening. Om for the Holidays is our special carolling version of Sacred Sound and it is on December 21st, Winter Solstice, this year. We'd love to celebrate with you. Register via our website.
Had some potential very bad bad news AND some potential very good news all at once yesterday. Though it’s so easy to let the mind immediately jump to “what if’s,” the meditated mind reminds you to pause for at least a microsecond to remember that everything will always be ok (even if everything’s not ok). I definitely don’t consider myself to be an expert meditator (who does?), and it was still a roller coaster day. (Thankfully bad news turned out to be a non-issue. Good news remains to be seen.) ⏳
But because I have a meditation practice at all, I was able to down level at least a bit from where the primitive part of my brain immediately wanted to go. 📉
describes meditation as the act of creating space between stimulus and response, and I return to that definition again and again. 💡
Wherever you are in your head, may you find a bit more space and a lot more solace. 🙏 .
