"MAJOR STRENGTH BUILDER!" 💣💣🔨✨✨
Thanks for sharing 💛💛💛
This one is a must for anyone looking to build a stronger core, arms, legs, and mind! The first time I learned #lolasana
my legs felt like they weighed 2000kg and I thought no way...but sure enough after the 100th time or so it started to make sense. It simply takes practice.
That being said, go ahead and cheat a little while you practice to make the lesson a little more fun and a little less intimidating. Use a block under each hand to help you lift and shift your body weight and add a strap to compress your body (key tip: press your feet into the straps to activate and pull your butt back!). Have fun with it! You might face plant a few times, that’s ok! Put a pillow there and give it a snuggle each time you do 😆💕 falling is part of the process to rising.
PS: this is an essential strength builder for inversions especially press handstand!

I woke up with tight shoulders. It's the time of the year where we tend to store our stress into our body, usually upper back, neck and hips. Try these exercises and let me know how you feel.
3 STRETCHES TO OPEN YOUR SHOULDERS
Tip 1. Hold each stretch for atleast 30 seconds to a minute. (hold for longer if you feel comfortable).
Tip 2. Practice daily.
Tip 3. Breathe...take long, deep breaths in and out through your nose, completely fill your lungs as you inhale and completely empty them as you exhale. (this will help you relax into the stretch).
Open shoulders and hips help you get into back bends as well as helping you release negative energy and emotions from the past.
(check out my hip opening stretches on IG TV.)
Stay tuned for next Mondays 3 stretches 💕
Have you taken the time to close your eyes & watch your breath yet today?
No matter where I am or what time it is, I always have the opportunity to channel peace in me life. All I need to do is take the time for myself.
You can do the same. All you need to do is make the choice and take action. 🙏🏼😊

2nd Series twist for #re3viveyourbody
This twist is perfectly placed in the #intermediateseries
to come back to your breath in between some more intense asanas.
I have a good amount of spinal flexibility plus I’m tall with really long arms and legs, so twists always feel great and aren’t typically too challenging for me.
The entrance and exit - transitions - are what I like to play around with, and slowly I’ve been able to build up the endurance to keep jumping like this - or least keep up the attempts - through the duration of my long, daily practice.
Jumping in and out of asanas is something that honestly many days I go into practice thinking that today I’m not going to jump at all. It requires a lot of energy and concentration to jump and play with ‘fancy’ transitions, and for whatever reason - being tired, thinking today I won’t be able to do it (i.e. self doubt) - a lot of times I try to convince myself that it’s not necessary and I just won’t do it. But by the time I get to my 3rd or 4th #sunsalutation
I normally find the energy and I remember that if I overjump, fall, whatever, it doesn’t actually matter, and so I just start going for it.
My transitions are becoming more and more consistent, but don’t let instagram fool you: everyone who nails these kinds of transitions has also fallen out of them countless times.
I don’t think it’s a necessary part of the practice, but with the idea of preparing the body and mind to realize its full potential, I feel like I would be cutting myself short by just giving up on it and not trying it at all. I know that I’m capable.
Some people have told me taking it to such extremes is no longer yoga, that it’s #acrobatics
- which maybe the technique is the same, but I think the reasons behind learning and practicing it are totally different.
What’s your opinion?
Necessary or not? Yoga or acrobatics?
Check with Khushi and Marina for their posts too!
Hope you’re all enjoying your Sunday.

Timehop just showed me nearly the exact headstand sequence I did tonight and two years ago!!! Maybe it’s time for some new variations?! But I will always love lotus headstands ❤️ My fave. #yogavideos
A few clips of what my practice looks like lately.. hoping for oodles of progress in 2019.
Tag a friend who’d wanna try this in 2019. #yogavideo
Tell me your dreams?
What are you passionate about?
Are you doing what you want to be doing with your life?
If not, why not?
For most of my life I was filled with fear, worry, and self doubt and my life was a direct result of this.
When I started to change my perspective and move away from these old limiting beliefs the universe started working for me and my whole life changed 💫
The universe gives you exactly what you focus on. 🌕
So now I choose to focus on the things I'm grateful for, my dreams, and my passions instead of fear and problems.
If you're not following your dreams and living your best life yet, that's ok!
You can start making changes now!
Are you ready to start making changes and step into your full power with me? 🙌🏼

As i look back over 2018 and the goals I’d set for myself, I realise a lot I have achieved (which is great). Others I have not (which is fine). And turns out I’ve smashed some others I didn’t even realise I was aiming for.
Always set goals, you’ll be surprised at what you can achieve if you’re working towards something.
There has to be a dart board before you throw the dart... otherwise you’ll stab someone in the eye. 🎯
Have you achieved what you set out to this year?
*DAILY WRIST CARE ROUTINE* .
(Shout out to @ajnamojo
my friend, student and acro buddy for suggesting this tutorial! 🤗) .
If I had it to do over again, I would have begun taking care of my wrists from the beginning. From the time I can remember, doing yoga caused me wrist pain. I was told that it was just my wrists “adjusting” and that it would go away. The pain eventually did go away. That is, until I begun doing handstands and it started up for REAL again. Again, I inquired about what I should do and was given the same advice—-that my wrists would eventually adjust and all would be well. My pain came and went. Occasionally causing me to go weeks unable to put pressure on my hands. Then, I begun learning the press handstand and my wrists were having none of it. I injured my left wrist. Literally, the day it begun to feel better, my right wrist gave out. A year passed without getting to practice my press —-or for that matter, much of anything on my hands. It was depressing, but like most injuries taught me some valuable lessons. These days I always make my students do these before EVERY class. Yes, they are not sexy or fun, but they are the work you have to do if you want to have the fun. P. S. I have zero wrist pain these days and haven’t for years. 😁
1. Reverse palm Cat/Cow x 5
2. Tabletop wrist circles x 5
3. Make Fists 👊 and bring them together like you are giving yourself a fist 🤛 bump. Keep your fingers tucked in and try to straighten your arms.
4. Turn your hands so that your palms face the ceiling and your fingers point towards your thighs. Straighten your arms. Lean your hips towards your heels to go deeper.
5. Fingers in elbows out. Try to straighten your arms. Pull your heart forward.
6. Stack your shoulders over your wrists. Keep the knuckles on both palms pressing down as you lift the heels of your hands and your thumb knuckles x 10.
7. Reach your arms up alongside your ears. Flick your fingers like your arm trying to sprinkle confetti 🎉 all over yourself. 1 min.

A hot and sweaty Saturday practice 🔅
Here’s a few pieces of my flow this afternoon. What’s hard about following a rigid workout program is that I don’t always have the time or energy to flow every day ☹️
I’ve started really looking forward to the weekends when I can move the way I want and stretch everything out 🙌🏻
Ps In the second video you’ll see maybe the most awkward way to enter headstand haha something halfway between a pike press and a straddle press? 🤷🏻♀️😂 idk what I was doing there, just go with it

Nothing to do
