Standing drop back with a kickover? Or handstand drop and standing back up? 🤔🤔🤔 ⠀ ⠀ I have wanted to try this little walk past ever since I learnt to kick over (hint hint to the question above!) but I used to need a little lie down after managing one so linking 3 or 4 together was a far off dream 😂 Chasing them dreams down one day at a time 💪🏼 ⠀ Also video editing can be deceptive, swipe across to see the real time - which was I think my 3rd attempt at filming this cos I kept messing up 😂 ⠀ Final slide is worth a look too 😂🙈🤕 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #kickover #adultgymnastics #goalsetter #backwalkover #frontwalkover #videoedit #aloyoga #wheelpose #dropback #dropbacklove #faceyourfears #believeinyourself #backbendlove #yogabloopers #yogafail #realtimeyoga #yogavideo #yogavideos #wheelpose #heartopeners #yogaatthegym #veganyogi #yogiswholift #yogastrong #yogaoutfit #gymnasticstrengthtraining #flexibilitygoals #handstanddrills #upsidedownlife

My new favourite weekend task is seeing what’s going round for #YogiSeeYogiDo and seeing if my body can do it 😂 ⠀ @eileendelatorre threw this little gem onto the table and my hips and hamstrings immediately ran for the hills but actually it ended up being the balance which was the hardest part 😂 Swipe across for my finest blooper 😂 ⠀ I may not be the bendiest yogi in the world and get my leg super high like these other badass women but do I get a bonus point for lining up so perfectly with my bannisters?? 😂👌🏼 ⠀ Whose joining in this week and giving it a try?! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #yogapose #yogainspiration #balancepose #trythis #aloyoga #yogaleggings #yogaposeoftheday #igyogacommunity #yogaworld #armbalance #kneelingpose #yogaathome #bloopersthursday #yogabloopers #hamstringstretch #bendygoals #yogagoals #inspiredyogis #weekendyoga #yogafamily #igyogafamily

Ad | If there’s one thing that helps me motivate myself to get on my mat and practice, it’s music. Almost to the point where if there’s nothing playing I become completely stuck as to what to do 😂 Music makes me feel creative and I ALWAYS hit my best handstands when a favourite song is playing. Is that just me?! 🤔 ⠀ I am loving using the NOW Music app because I absolutely love the nostalgia of listening to songs that I know every single word to - seriously how does your brain retain lyrics so much easier than ANYTHING else 😂 I love that all the songs from ‘my era’ are in one place alongside all the latest hits so I don’t waste time picking songs. ⠀ Check out my stories for my guilty pleasure favourite song from the 90s #Ad #NOWMusicApp #BlastFromTheNowMusicPast ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #scorpionhandstand #handstandpractice #handstand #bendygoals #musiclovers #handstanding #handbalance #makingshapes #heartopening #yogastrong #yogiswholift #veganyogi #veganfitnessmodel #yogaathome #scorpionpose #backbends #backbendlove #spinalstrength #hipflexorstretch #spiderfingers #handstandnation #handstand365 #armbalanceaddict #yogafeature #yogagoals

I was sat with my own thoughts this morning (danger zone 😂) and was contemplating how we’ve all come quite accustomed to immediate gratification. There’s always food in the fridge and when there isn’t there’s a delivery driver on demand. There’s a parcel at my door when I only clicked ‘Buy Now’ like 4 hours ago. If I wanna chat to someone I have a million ways I can choose to do so right this second. Have we become too expectant for things to arrive/happen in super speed? ⠀ I feel like a handstand has a similar feel around it for lots of people. If you wanna learn to handstand but are kinda put off by the effort required, then perhaps you need to evaluate how much you want it or if you’re in a little bubble of instant gratification. There’s a reason not everyone can do these! I’m guilty of not practicing mine often enough recently, but when I was trying to learn I would try eeeeeveryday. Not necessarily attached to a yoga practice or anything - just y’know, walk in from work and see if I can do one yet kinda thing. Sure, I definitely wanted it to happen RIGHT NOW but the fact it didn’t didn’t put me off. It was fun to learn, noticing an extra moment or two of hang time bit by bit. ⠀ And I swear that makes it SO much sweeter - to know that all that effort paid off and to see what you’re capable of if you set your mind to it 💪🏼 So I’m gunna try and remind myself of this whilst I struggle on with trying to do a pull up. Time doesn’t matter. Effort does 👌🏼 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #transformationtuesday #handstandtraining #handstand #yogaprogress #yogajournal #yogajourney #beforeandafter #progresspic #progresspicture #practicemakesprogress #fitnesstransformation #transformyourself #handstandnation #selftaughtyogi #handstanding #handbalance #handstandeveryday #inversionaddict #aloyoga #upperbodystrength #yogaforstrength #yogafitness #yogamakesyoustrong #strongyoga #bodyweightexercises #thisgirlcan #believeinyourself #putinthework #effortrewarded

Do you live locally to me? 🧐 ⠀ I always kinda forget that I might have followers near by and never mention my teaching schedule 😂 But I teach every Monday evening in Old Town Hemel. 8pm. It’s always a fun Vinyasa flow which is geared towards beginners/improvers so if you’ve never tried yoga or perhaps have a little experience under your belt, you’re all welcome! Currently have about a 50/50 split of men/women and remember that being flexible isn’t a requirement - but a likely side effect if you come 😏 ⠀ Either drop me a message or email if you want some more info! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #yogateacher #hemelhempstead #hemelhempsteadyoga #yogaclasses #yogaclass #vinyasayoga #yogaforflexibility #malasana #yogisquat #yogaoutdoors #yogaphotography #hemelyoga #berkhamstead #stalbansyoga #onlineyogateacher #privateyogateacher #yogaforhealth #hemelhempsteadoldtown #yogafun

#YogiSeeYogiDo is my new favourite thing!! I love taking inspiration from some of the incredible yogis on IG and this one is originally inspired by @golden.pothos.yoga. Swipe across for all the attempts I saw in my feed today and just had to give it a try. ⠀ It’s quite deceptive, there’s a biiiiig old twist in there but lifting that front foot is the tricky part if your hips aren’t made of plasticine 🙋🏼‍♀️ Thought id share the video to show how not all Instagram poses are elegantly entered 😂🙈 And getting out of it with grace wasn’t even attempted 🤣 ⠀ Seen something cool you wanna try out? Fancy giving this a go? Tag #YogiSeeYogiDo and spread some love to the creative ones amongst us who come up with this crazy stuff 😂 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #yogafun #yogagames #twistedpose #armbalance #sidecrowvariation #parsvabakasana #yogainspiration #balancechallenge #yogacommunity #igyogafamily #peakpose #strongyoga #yogachallenge #weekendyoga #trythis #inspiredyogis

Happy Saturday friends! I feel like we are going out with an absolute bang with tomorrow’s final pose for #BalanceThatAsana2. My sincerest apologies for the godawful pose that we gave you today but this backbend balance feels bloody amazing! ⠀ Had a grand old time with my video editor to show you how I got into it 😂🤓 Genuinely considering adding this into an upcoming class because it’s such a fun one! Swipe across for some bloopers where I got too cocky and tried for a deeper backbend 😂🙄 ⠀ Thanks so much to everyone who took part in this and I hope you love the last one as much as me! ♥️ ⠀ Hosts: @yogaandchaigirl @bluesuntara @seacoralyoga @livinleggings @bethanysmithyoga ⠀ Sponsored by @aloyoga & @alo.moves ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #balancetest #balancepose #backbend #aloyoga #hemelhempsteadyoga #hertfordshireyoga #yogateacher #marchyogachallenge #yogabalance #yogaforbalance #yogaforhealth #yogacommunity #yogaeverydamnday #yogadaily #heartwideopen #heartopener #movewithpurpose #movingmeditation #breathisboss #vinyasayoga

I’ve spoken about this before, but my feet don’t seem to be designed for toe stands. I’ve read something somewhere (*please tell me where if you know what I’m talking about*) about a certain tendon or ligament in the foot which isn’t present in everybody. And the absence of this inhibits your ability to lift onto the tip toes and/or the strength to hold it up. I’m fully prepared to accept that this is absolute crap and my feet are just weak if you know otherwise but it’s an interesting concept that obviously sits well with me due to my inability to hold any kind of toe stand 🤔 ⠀ So what I’m getting at here is that you’re going to have to wait for my cohosts to post later for tomorrow’s #BalanceThatAsana2 official pose as I couldn’t do anything like it 🤣🙈 This is a friendlier option for anyone who is in the toe stand reject club with me 🙋🏼‍♀️ ⠀ Hosts who are better at this than me: @yogaandchaigirl @bethanysmithyoga @bluesuntara @seacoralyoga ⠀ Sponsored by @aloyoga & @alo.moves ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #toestand #anatomynerd #toestandvariation #footstrength #aloyoga #aloyogachallenge #balance #balancechallenge #blondegirls #yogaphotoshoot #yogaphotography #yogamodel #fitnessmodelling #silverhairdontcare #yogaart #nooneisperfect #yogaleggings #athleisurewear #eaglearms #garudasana #yogabeauty #internationalwomensday2019 #knowyourstrengths #iloveyogapants #yogajourney #tippytoes #hemelhempstead #yogateacher #boxmoortrust

Despite the fact no one is particularly interested in my #FitnessFriday posts (😂🙈) I WILL persist and share stuff that I enjoy so ta-daaaaa, here’s my leg day routine from this week for y’all! ⠀ I’ve started a new routine where once a week I train strength per body part and then a second time for hypertrophy (gainzzzzz 💪🏼) so this is my strength training which means low reps at some pretty brutal weight 😭 ⠀ ▪️ Back Squats - 6 reps x 5 sets ▪️ Leg Press - HEAVY. I always surprise myself with how much I can push here. 8 reps x 5 sets ▪️ Hip Thrusts 🍑 - 10 reps x 4 sets. I add a resistance band around my thighs for extra tush activation. ▪️ Calf Raise - 15 reps x 3 sets. I’ve actually found I prefer to do these standing with a barbell but each to their own. ▪️ Sled Push - Loaded with bodyweight. As far as you can (until failure) - 4 times through. ⠀ As much as I have ideals about how I’d like my legs to look, my main motivation is to be strong AF and I love watching my weights creep slightly higher each time I try these. ⠀ A current semi-short term goal of mine is to be able to squat my body weight. I’m a fair way off at the minute but it wouldn’t be a goal if I was pretty much there already would it?! Does anyone else have any fitness based goals they’re working on? Would love to hear and then we can smash them together 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #legday #legdayworkout #backsquats #veganlifters #yogiswholift #gluteworkouts #quadburn #womenwholift #legslegslegs #strongaf #strengthgoals #beyourbestself #gymvideos #gymfitness #legdaymotivation #fitnessvideos #workoutvideos #workoutinspiration #beginnerlifter #fitnessfridays #yogafit #fitnessbodies #strongwomen #internationalwomensday2019

If you don’t have a lot of time on your hands, don’t bother with my second slide 😂 I move t h i s slowly to get into this one 🐌 So here is tomorrows #BalanceThatAsana2 pose - a standing figure 4/funky chair with a twist and booooooy is this an awesome hip opener as well as an absolute beast of a balance pose 😂 ⠀ Bonus points and kudos to anyone who can take their gaze to the sky in this one!

If for the rest of your life you could only practice forward folds or backbends what would you choose? ⠀ Tomorrow’s #BalanceThatAsana2 pose is my choice which quite easily gives you my answer 😂 It took me a good few years of yoga to go from loathing backbends to literally craving them so if you still hate them, hang in there ♥️ ⠀ This pose is a little bit like a king pigeon, but much further up off the floor. This arm variation is a big shoulder and chest opener so you could take mermaid arms as an alternative if that’s more appropriate for your range of movement. To enter, I flip my grip with the arm closest to the back leg, switch the hand holding the foot then release the first hand down towards the knee. Does that make sense? 🤔 Probably should’ve done a video, I will try to do one tomorrow if anyone wants! ⠀ Hosts: @livinleggings @bluesuntara @yogaandchaigirl @bethanysmithyoga @seacoralyoga ⠀ Sponsored by @aloyoga & @alo.moves ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #kingpigeonpose #kingpigeonvariation #backbendlove #heartopener #leadwithlove #heartwideopen #backbendpractice #yogaatthegym #aloyoga #aloyogachallenge #igyogachallenge #igyogafamily #flippedgrip #yogabeauty #yogaart #veganlifters #balancingpose #funkyyoga #balancechallenge #yogaportrait #yogaposedaily

Just when I thought I couldn’t love a side plank anymore, along comes this little beaut! 😍 Here’s our pose for day 6 of #BalanceThatAsana2 which was inspired by @yogamand and I think @dylanwerneryoga before that. And the best thing about it is that the balance isn’t THAT hard 😂💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 ⠀ I’m loving the amount of smiles we have in the gallery and feel so damn happy when I see people truly enjoying the challenge. And it got me thinking, what is it that makes you choose to participate in a challenge? Do you want to learn new poses you’ve not seen before? Is it more important who is hosting rather than the theme? Or is it all about the sponsors and hopefully winning some free shit 😂 (zero judgement from me!!) I’m genuinely intrigued by what it is you look for cos I’m planning the next few months and taking requests! ⠀ Hosts: @bethanysmithyoga @seacoralyoga @bluesuntara @livinleggings @yogaandchaigirl ⠀ Sponsored by @aloyoga & @alo.moves ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #sideplank #sideplankvariation #coreworkout #abworkout #vashistasana #aloyoga #aloyogachallenge #igyoga #yogagram #igyogachallenge #yogachallengepose #igyogacommunity #yogafriends #yogaforstrength #inspiredyogis #yogainspo #yogaatthegym #yogachallengeworld #yogateacher #pretzelposes #yogabind #funkyyoga #funyoga #yogapantsforlife #strongwomenunite #corestrength #upperbodystrength

You know what I love about teaching yoga? That it never, EVER fails to improve my mood. I always leave a class on an absolute high, whether it’s an online student, a group class or a 1-2-1, I freaking love sharing this practice and *hopefully* seeing other people enjoy it too. I’ve never had a job before where I’m pretty much guaranteed to finish my ‘shift’ feeling happier than when I started. How fucking awesome is that?! 🥰🥰🥰 I’m currently shifting around my working patterns and opening up more time to teach so please get in touch if you’re looking for a teacher. I will literally be a happier person because of it! ⠀ I’m coming at you this evening with this 2 leg dolphin thing for day 5 of #BalanceThatAsana2 which I’ve actually had to modify a bit 😅 Holly gave us a super cool knee grab option but I dunno if maybe my femurs are too damn long but it was impossible for me. I assure you this isn’t an ‘easy option’ 😳 but check in with Holly a little later to see what we were aiming for 👌🏼 ⠀ Hosts: @yogaandchaigirl @bethanysmithyoga @seacoralyoga @livinleggings @bluesuntara ⠀ Sponsored by @aloyoga & @alo.moves ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #dolphinpose #dolphinposevariation #aloyoga #aloyogachallenge #yogaleggings #yogaathome #downwarddogvariation #yogamakesyoustrong #balancechallenge #balance #harderthanitlooks #stretchtherapy #selftaughtyogis #yogateacher #onlineyogateacher #hemelhempstead #bendygirls #flexibilitygoals #athleisurewear #yogapants #yogaeverydamnday #vinyasayoga #yogastrong #loveyourwork #learnyoga #yogaforbeginners #yogateacherlife #beboldbeyou #findyourpassion
