I’ve no idea where the name mermaid legs came from but that leg shape feels truly horrible in my body 😂 It also messes with my perfectionism as I’m unable to make it symmetrical and that is simply a disaster. So crossed ankles is a MUCH more preferential shape for me for today’s #PinchMeInTheAsana 😂 It has the same essence of internal rotation at the thighs but without the awkward fight at the ankles to then get your legs to externally rotate as well 🤷🏼‍♀️ ⠀ Think about turning your knees in to face each other and squeeze your thighs together like you’re trying to hold a piece of paper between them 💪🏼 Roll on tomorrow for my favourite shape evaaaaa 😍 ⠀ Hosts: @livinleggings @leighyogipilot @susievanessayoga @robinmartinyoga @seacoralyoga ⠀ Sponsored by @aloyoga & @alo.moves ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #pincha #mermaidlegs #fishtail #pinchamayurasana #yogashorts #gymshorts #onwednesdayswewearpink #saturdaysunshine #yogainthesun #forearmstand #yogabalance #yogaforstrength #calisthenicsgirls #stronggirlsclub #gymoutfits #ukyoga #yogauk #legsfordays #longlegsdontcare #lifeisbetterupsidedown #yogalovely #yogaposeoftheday #yogainspo #dailyyogapose #pinktomaketheboyswink #backmuscles #strongcore #shoulderstrength #advancedyoga

Pincha is one of my favourite things in the whole wide world so I am SO EXCITED to kick off day 1 of #PinchMeInTheAsana with MULTITASK in Pincha 🤓 ⠀ I’ve actually never tried this write in pincha thing despite it going round the gram a few times, but @seacoralyoga was low key obsessed with it so I thought it MUST be worth a try. And omg 😂 it’s so much fun! The choice to use a notepad that I had to climb my hand on top of was perhaps not making my life any easier but seriously give this a try, what a giggle. ⠀ Take a look at my cohosts for their awesome multitasking pinchas! @leighyogipilot @seacoralyoga @robinmartinyoga @susievanessayoga @mrs_khaleesi_gaither ⠀ Sponsored by @aloyoga @alo.moves @infinitystrap @yogabody @sahajanskincare @yogapaws ⠀ ⠀ #pincha #pinchamayurasana #writeinpincha #multitasking #multitaskingatitsfinest #aloyogaleggings #yogafun #yogaplay #childatheart #trythis #yogaskills #yogaplaytime #inversionpractice #inversionaddict #forearmstand #upsidedownlife #staglegpincha #playeveryday #nevergrowold #igyogachallenge #makethisgoviral #dowhatmakesyousmile #yogainspo #silverhair #hemelhempstead #takingnotes

livinleggings. As a self taught yogi, and one who quickly picked up a distaste for Bi

As a self taught yogi, and one who quickly picked up a distaste for Bikram/hot yoga, I have only tried this splitsy, leany forward type dancers pose once or twice. I’ve always gone for the backbendy upright one and worked on flipping the grip to king dancer. One foot balance has never been my forté and my garden being on a little hill really didn’t help me out here but wow is it pretty! 😍(And felt super awesome too). I think I only held it for a few seconds, because that top leg is kicking to the sky with everything I’ve got, but I’m now on the chase for a full split version 👊🏼 ⠀ So the final day of this #InternationalYogisOfMystery challenge asks for our ‘secret identity’ - and I pondered this awhile and finally realised that this Insta page is essentially my secret identity. There’s so much chat about people being fake online but I honestly feel it allows me the opposite - it allows me to be exactly who I am and share the things I want to without the judgement I feel from other people in real life which holds me back from myself. It’s the ideal place for an introvert in an extroverted world. And on that note, 7 days of opening up has wreaked havoc on my anxiety 😂 (in a good way I think 🤔) but consider that book well and truly closed! Phew 😅 ⠀ Hosts: @livinleggings @mrs_khaleesi_gaither @yogi__bee @marthy.fit @rebeccahleigh Sponsors: @onzie @rollgahealth @ajnawellbeing @aloetteofc3 @craftwonderland ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #dancerspose #natarajasana #needlepose #standingsplit #standingsplits #onziegear #standingbalance #yogainspo #yogabeauty #girlsarestrong #makingshapes #womenstrong #socialmedialife #beyourbestself #bikramyoga #womenwithmuscle #yogaandme #findyourbalance #flexibilitygoals #yogaposes #yogashapes #tallgirlsrock #selftaughtyogi #selfpractice #yogaathome

Goddess is one of those poses that always looks so much prettier in a photo than it feels in my body 😂 The irony of it being today’s #InternationalYogisOfMystery pose to associate with what makes you feel beautiful is just brilliant 😂 I can assure you it is certainly NOT goddess pose! ⠀ This one’s tricky for me! I’m struggling to pinpoint times or occasions that make me feel that way without being fickle and saying ‘when I’ve had my hair/make up done’ or ‘when I’m having a good skin day’. But for want of a better answer, I feel at my physical best when I’m at my mental best, which is why when I start feeling shitty, I know I just need to remind myself it’s my headspace that’s the issue, not anything else. Something I could’ve done with knowing years ago, but that’s a story for another time! ⠀ Hosts: @livinleggings @marthy.fit @yogi__bee @mrs_khaleesi_gaither @rebeccahleigh Sponsors: @onzie @ajnawellbeing @aloetteofc3 @rollgahealth @craftwonderland#goddesspose #horsepose #mudras #beagoddess #onziegear #gyanmudra #tippytoes #makingshapes #yogawear #whatmakesyoufeelbeautiful #beautyisintheeyeofthebeholder #feelbeautiful #hipopener #hipopeners #gardenyoga #todaysthought #openup #girlswithabs #womenstrong #yogamuscles #yogafitness #yogainspo #yogaoffthemat #sculpted #shoulderboulders #girlsarestrong

livinleggings. I think my hair looks great in this pic 💁🏼‍♀️🙂
⠀ 
When was the last

I think my hair looks great in this pic 💁🏼‍♀️🙂 ⠀ When was the last time you allowed yourself a self compliment? Like why is it such a hard thing for us to do or we somehow think we shouldn’t cos then you’re bragging or being boastful. I tell people on the daily how great they look in their photos but a criticism is the first thing I have for most of my own. Go give your own page a little stalk, compliment yourself the way you would a stranger on the internet 😂 It’s a worthwhile way to spend time on social media! ⠀ Side lunging my way into day 5 of #InternationalYogisOfMystery and facing fears. I am forever in fear of making the wrong decision - loads of people casually label themselves as indecisive but my indecision really plagues me. From small pointless things like regretting what i order at a restaurant, to huge ones such as career moves. What if it’s a bad idea? What if it’s not what I expect/want? Conquering this one isn’t easy, I’ve not conquered it yet! But essentially I have to push myself into a choice, and realise that everything will be okay in the end even if things don’t go as I’d hope or planned. Everything. Will. Be. Okay. ⠀ Wow, long caption. Soz 😂 ⠀ Hosts: @livinleggings @marthy.fit @rebeccahleigh @mrs_khaleesi_gaither @yogi__bee Sponsors: @onzie @ajnawellbeing @aloetteofc3 @craftwonderland @rollgahealth#skandasana #onziegear #sidelunge #hipopener #favouriteasana #faceyourfears #selflovespo #selflovematters #complimentyourself #yogabinds #positiveattitude #socialmedialife #yogaposeoftheday #hipopeners #flexibilitytraining #ponytailgoals #everythingwillbeok #everythingwillbeokay #facingfears #facingmyfears #todaysthoughts #mondaymusings #yogainspo

Is this actually yoga? ⠀ At what point does stretching become yoga? Is it how it’s sequenced? When it’s done? The breath? I’ve been saying recently how I’ve not properly practiced yoga in ages. I’m just prioritising other hobbies for the time being. But I stretched out after my workout today and I’m questioning if maybe I’m being too judgemental of myself and I’m getting more yoga in than I thought. ⠀ Sure, I’ve not rolled my mat out and set aside some time to work through a sequence... but when I ‘stretch’ like this at the gym, I’m focussing on breathing consciously, on relaxing the body, and focusing on how each shape feels in each part of my body. It relaxes me for sure. ⠀ But I didn’t take my socks off. And I didn’t link one shape to the next in a fluid way. And I didn’t even do one downdog 😂 so I dunno, what do you think? ⠀ Slowed it down in the next few slides for those trying to see the ‘sequence’. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #yogaatthegym #isthisyoga #yogavsstretching #dailystretch #postworkoutstretch #flexibilitytraining #yogiswholift #mobilitytraining #todaysthoughts #yogaleggings #gymleggings #ukfitfam #ukfitness #stayflexible #hamstrings #yogaflow #yogasequence #yogawarmup #yogafitlife #yogainspo #letsdoyoga #learnyoga #stretchingexercises #stretchingroutine #movefreely #movementismedicine

I love how for this challenge, the day of ‘happiness’ has been twinned with heart openers as it feels so appropriate for me. I used to freakin’ hate them - they were so hard and so uncomfortable and I couldn’t breathe and I couldn’t think and and and.... any excuse to not practice them would do 😂 I wish I had a valuable revelation of what made it all change, but now they are my absolute favourite. I spent the weekend at @soulcircusfestival festival and any hint at the word ‘heart opening’ on the program had me like 👀🙋🏼‍♀️ ⠀ So Day 4 for #InternationalYogisOfMystery is ‘what makes you happy’. And other than backbends, building connections with people is what really makes me happy. I’m an enneagram 5 for anyone that understands what that means, and generally stay a closed book to most people in my life. But feeling comfortable and content enough in someone’s company to be able to let them in a little and build proper friendships really makes me happy. And it’s something I have to put effort into - cos staying closed is so much easier 😂 - so when I see the effort paying off, and finding myself with some badass friendships, I just beam 🥰 ⠀ @lorenpeta slaying in behind the lens for this one. And being one of those badasses 😘 ⠀ Sponsors: @onzie @ajnawellbeing @craftwonderland @aloetteofc3 @rollgahealth#heartopeners #backbends #backbendlove #heartwideopen #friendshipgoals #enneagram5 #lowlunge #yogaphotography #runawaytothecircus #anjaneyasana #backbending #selfgrowth #pursuitofhappiness #whatmakesmehappy #heartopener #heartopening #yogamodel #frenchbraids #yogainspo #yogaphotoshoot #yogaphotos #tallgirlsclub #dowhatyoulove #yogafestival #aloyoga

Currently spending less time on my phone and more time in the real world and it’s kinda fabulous, but apologies for falling behind on our #InternationalYogisOfMystery challenge 🤦🏼‍♀️ I will catch up with Day 2 another time but here’s Day 3 - using a prop or wall and tell us what makes you feel STRONG 💪🏼 ⠀ I’m going to be really stereotypical here and say that lifting weights and my yoga practice make me feel strong BUT not because they grow my muscles or allow me to hold my body in funny shapes - but because they make you feel empowered, independent, and like you can literally handle anything life throws at you. ⠀ Hosts: @mrs_khaleesi_gaither @yogi__bee @rebeccahleigh @livinleggings @marthy.fit Sponsors: @onzie @ajnawellbeing @aloetteofc3 @craftwonderland @rollgahealth ⠀ ⠀ #runawaytothecircus #soulcircus #womenstrong #scorpionpincha #pinchamayurasana #pincha #backbend #backbendlove #bendbends #inversionpractice #upsidedownlife #feelstrong #empoweredwomen #selfempowerment #beyourbestself #dowhatyoulove #forearmstand #messyhairdontcare #yogaforstrength #yogamuscles #yogafitness #socialmediadetox

livinleggings. So I’ve somehow found myself hosting a challenge which is asking us to

So I’ve somehow found myself hosting a challenge which is asking us to share stuff that’s a little more than skin deep and I dunno if anyone has picked up on it but I really don’t share much personal stuff on here 😂 I could write the longest caption in the world about a yoga pose, flow, or something I’m working on... ask me to open up a little and I am the heaviest closed book you’ll ever see 😂📚 BUT comfort zones are not there to remain within them your entire life, so here we go.... ⠀ Day 1 for #InternationalYogisOfMystery is a Warrior Pose - tell us what you’re fighting for. I could remain skin deep and list my physical gym goals as things I’m fighting for, but the layer underneath? I’m fighting to accept my personality for what it is, embracing the quips and quirks that make me unique and trying to not criticise them. It removes someone’s ability to offend you with something if you’ve already offended yourself with it right? People throw out the phrase self-love like it’s something you simply chose to pick up at the supermarket and take home but that’s bollocks and it takes some serious hard work to actively avoid being self critical. You gotta fight for that bad boy. ⠀ Being my indecisive self as usual and throwing 3 different warriors into the mix cos I couldn’t decide which to share 🤷🏼‍♀️ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Hosts: @livinleggings @mrs_khaleesi_gaither @marthy.fit @rebeccahleigh @yogi__bee 💕⠀ ⠀ Sponsors: @ajnawellbeing @rollgahealth @onzie @craftwonderland @aloetteofc3 #warrior2 #virabhadrasana #virabhadrasana2 #warriorpose #onziegear #strengthpose #yogastrength #yogamuscles #yogateacher #selfacceptance #selflovespo #positiveattitude #positivenergy #peaceloveandyoga #believeinyourself #ashtangayoga #standingpose #selfreflection #selfreflect #yogaoffthemat #yogalifestyles #yogaposes #makingshapes #selftaughtyogis #foreverlearning #yogaforstrength #hipopeners
