Today's @yogafeature by @ania_75 β€”β€”β€”β€” Here you go, this is my favourite wrist warm up I like to do before starting the yoga practice to prevent injuries in the wrists, elbows and shoulders and to lubricate the joins. It’s so important especially when you are attempting to practice any arm balancing poses or bodyweight exercises.

Today's @yogafeature by @adellbridges β€”β€”β€”β€” SPLITS is one of my most requested tutorials. Achieving a split isn’t easy and the reasons are complex! . . Firstly I think it’s important to know WHY you want to do a split. What does it matter? πŸ€”Really?! You can live a wonderful and purpose-filled life without ever doing a split πŸ˜… . . Got your reason? Good ☺️ . . The areas to lengthen for split are basically everything around the hips and thighs β€” hamstrings, hip flexors, hip adductors, and I’m sure the glutes and low back muscles play a part too . . I believe long term lengthening comes through active stretching, so keeping the muscles engaged. ✍️ This is why I wrote text all over the second photoβ€”so if other accounts repost it without my caption, the important part isn’t left out: ENGAGE YOUR MUSCLES . . Relaxing in poses that stretch beyond your current range of motion can just put strain on the tendons and ligaments . . Our bodies are designed to MOVE and bounce and spring and change direction, and so going to full range of motion with activation allows for adaptation . . Swipe for my fave poses to work on split and read the instructions ☝️ . . PS my first @alo.moves class releases in less than a week and you may find it worth trying if you love splits πŸ˜‰ . . PPS outfit from the first photo is some of the new colours from @aloyoga ’s holiday line which launches soon.

Today's @yogafeature by @adellbridges β€”β€”β€”β€” Two years ago I was counting calories and macros and generally feeling hungry all the time to try to trim off the fat from my belly. I just wanted to see if I could achieve the β€œwashboard abs” thing . . I lasted about 3 months on this macro-counting diet before I realised 1) I wasn’t being a good friend, because eating with me was a nightmare, and 2) if I ever did achieve the look I was going for, it would be with health consequences. Because clearly my belly is just never gonna be a β€œwashboard” . . Funny thing is, now I have no idea how many calories I eat in a day, I never feel like I’m depriving myself of anything β€” and I look pretty much exactly the same as I did two years ago when I was dieting. I DO eat very healthily and I exercise regularly, but what I don’t do is WORRY about if I’m eating the wrong thing all the time. . I’m not sharing this to suggest that one way of eating or dieting is good or bad or superior or inferior. We all have things that will work for us as individuals that will not work for others . . I just know I have tried so many times to eat according to someone else’s advice, and to tailor my diet based around how I want to look. But I learned at last to pay attention to what foods make me feel energetic and healthy, and enjoy *feeling* good over looking at certain way . .

Today's @yogafeature by @jessicaolie β€”β€”β€”β€” I spent the majority of my morning horizontal on the sofa with a hot water bottle in an attempt to reduce my period pains. It definitely helped a little but I really didn’t want to have to take any pain killers if I didn’t need to. Then I remembered that I ordered some magnesium oil and rubbed that all over my tummy and it helped even more. But I knew that the thing that helps the most for me, is a little movement. I didn’t want to get on my mat for long but I also wanted to flow. So, I compromised with myself. I put some music on, grabbed some fuzzy socks and slipped into this @gymsharkwomen outfit that makes me feel like superwoman and I slid around the kitchen floor making whatever shapes my heart desired and my cramps slowly started to fade. ✨ #Ad #gymsharkwomen #LETSSTARTYOGA 🎢 Song: @nathanballmusic β€œAll or nothing” 🎢 β€”β€”β€”β€” Follow @yogafeature πŸ™
Today's @yogafeature by @evadiamantopoulou β€”β€”β€”β€” Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach!!!πŸ˜‰πŸ™ . My initial intention was to do some strength workout with these #kettlebells but my body had a different opinion 😜so instead of quitting and doing nothing I decided to use them for some #stretching and #flexibilitytraining !!! Always listen to your body, but instead of giving up try to be creative and have funπŸ‘πŸ˜„ . #splits #flexibility β€”β€”β€”β€” Follow @yogafeature πŸ™
Today's @yogafeature by @roxanne_yoga β€”β€”β€”β€” Engaging your core You hear a lot of Teachers say: Suck your stomach in. Well, sucking your stomach in when you're dumping on your back doesn't help engage your core at all, let alone efficiently, and don't you find that it's so hard to breathe? I've a lot of people telling me they don't understand what it means to 'lengthen the tailbone down' and 'draw ribs in.' These two movements help 1)prevent you from dumping into your lower back, and 2)engage your core more efficiently, ensuring safety when you practice. In the long run, it helps you build strength and awareness when you're upside down. I've done a video to show what it means in different poses. Hope this helps! #yoga #yogatutorial #yogi #yogapose β€”β€”β€”β€” Follow @yogafeature πŸ™

Today's @yogafeature by @angelakukhahnyoga β€”β€”β€”β€” *PINCHA PRESS DRILLS* . . #angelasyogatutorials . . . . . This is going to be short and sweet, but wanted to share a few thoughts on this pose after teaching it today. . . 1. Pressing into the pose with my head slightly more β€œtucked in” than I have had in the past. (Thanks to @acromegan ) this allowed me to remain less arched in the upper back. I know it looks like my head is resting on my hands, but I promise it is just the angle. This allows me to press and compress my body much easier. When you arch you lose your compression which makes you β€œhinge” at your hips. This causes the legs to kick out behind you rather than compress towards your midsection on the way up. . . 2. In forearm plank strongly push the floor away and shift forward and then press back. This is the same action you will need in the press. To stay protracted as your shoulders shift forward. . . 3. The next step is to try this action again in dolphin pose! . . 4. Then, tip toe your feet back into forearm plank and then forward into dolphin. All the while continue to press the floor away with your forearms and hands and keep your shoulder blades strongly protracted (spreading away from one another) Resist your shifting your shoulders forward as you walk your feet to your hands. Keep pushing them towards your legs as you engage your core and lift your hips. You will need to find this same resistance of the shoulders when you press up. . . 5. My friend and fellow teacher @buddhiyogini did this entry in class and it is a great way to work the pose if straddle is not your thing. πŸ™ŒπŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈ Good luck! πŸ‘πŸ€ . #pinchamayurasana #pincha #pinchadrills #yogagirl β€”β€”β€”β€” Follow @yogafeature πŸ™
