Resistance is only there as long as you hold on to it. . Something that I understand more and more happening in my mind and body. I am not naturally bendy - basically it’s just the opposite. My body has always accumulated tension easily. Both body and mind learn to live this way, they feel safe and hold on to it. It might feel impossible to let this go but only because you hold on to it. I am not saying that letting go happens easily or quickly; it can be a very long process. But you need to understand that letting go does not mean that you are in danger. Nor does holding on to something provide any kind of safety. It is your own construct. Thus, only you can let it go. Resistance is only there as long as you hold on to it. 🙏❤️ . .

⠀ Day 10 of the #FunDationsOfYoga is #Ustrasana / #CamelPose ⠀ Do you immediately cringe when you hear “heart opener” or “backbend”???? I actually enjoy backbending, but only when my body is feeling it! It’s like finding that groove when you’re listening to music, you either feel it, or you don’t🙄 The same with me and backbends. My body will tell me whether or not it wants to backbend, and I listen to her ☺️ Even if backbends aren’t your jam, there are many things you can do to ease yourself into them. ⠀ Backbends are essentially front body openers! When I practice camel pose, I first stretch through my quads and hip flexors (low lunges, up dog/cobra, half bow pose, half frog pose) and work on stretching and opening my chest/collar bones (interlacing hands behind the back, “cactus” the arms in a standing backbend) and even a few lateral bends to open and lengthen the side body. ⠀ When you backbend you create length first and then work into the backbend! If you lean straight back, you’re just crushing into your lumbar spine 😖 Remember, to press your hips forward in your camel pose and lean up before you lean back. Hence the need to stretch the quads and hip flexors!🙃 ⠀ Happy backbending friends!🥰 ⠀ ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ ⠀ 🤹🏻‍♀️ HOSTS @bentley.likethecar @laraliam @yogaandchaigirl @helen_garner_yoga @cece.carson @erikafischeryoga ⠀ 🎪 SPONSORS @aloyoga @alo.moves#yogachallenge #heartopeners #openyourheart #igyoga #aloyoga #challengeyourself #yogafundamentals #foundationalposes #yogafun #beplayful #happywednesday #yogainspiration #beyogastrong #alwaysastudent #moveyourbody #stretchyourbody #yogalove #onebreathatatime #peaceloveyoga #trustyourself #yogaisforeveryone #stretchyourbody #stretchyourmind #chooselove #myyogajourney

Day 1️⃣6️⃣ of #AYearOfYoga2019 with @cyogalife ➡️ #BaddhaParivrttaUttanasana - #Corkscrew . I love introducing new poses in the class, and I remember when I first introduced this in the class as the final option from twisted chair. Students were looking at me like saying “how is that even possible?!”. . It’s true, this is probably one of the hardest bind, it takes so much energy out of the body and it heats up the body very easily. I didn’t have of this pose from a year ago, because I can clearly remember, a year ago I still can’t straighten my legs. This is just another definition of the pose that if it’s not the time, it’s just not gonna happen, so keep practicing and keep trying. Our body is a magical tool that will always learn, open up to new possibilities, and evolve. . . . . . . 📸: @davo.tan 🙏

Just been looking back and comparing some simple poses that were super “curved” and uncomfortable physically and mentally when I first started my practice and it’s so comforting to see the changes. Look at that curved back 😵🥴sheesh!! Ai ai. I was pretty sceptical yoga was going to do anything for me other than keep me calm, but I never realized how comforting it can be physically and mentally and most of all ACTUALLY keep me in shape. And after seeing improved flexibility I’m definitely not a skeptic anymore. 🙌🏼 . . . . . #yoga #yogi #myyogajourney #yogaeveryday #yogalove #yogaeveryday #yogafit #fitness #fitspo #fitnessblogger #handstand #flexibility #yogafam #eaglelegs #handstand #healthylifestyle #noexcuses #fitnessgoals #alo #aloyoga #igyogacommunity #yogajournal #myyogajourney #aloyogachallenge #handstand #igyogafamily #yogaposes #yogalovers #handstand #downwarddog

🖤 #AloWinterWarriors day 5: 🖤Tell us about an experience that forced you out of your comfort zone and challenged you to change your opinion or perspective🖤 ✨ I’m going to be very honest on this one. Joining this community, creating a public Instagram, photographing myself - all of these forced me out of my comfort zone and towards a change of opinion. The opinion that girls who post photos of themselves are insecure and seeking attention. That people on Instagram just want to be famous. I looked down on it. How very, very wrong I was. Being on here opened my eyes to the fact that girls who take photos, and share themselves - they aren’t insecure. I was the one who was insecure. It opened my eyes to the fact that I put other women down, because I was envious. The people I’ve met on here, they’ve changed me. Helped repair my relationship with myself - with my confidence and femininity. Encouraged me to share my writing. I am so happy to have left my comfort zone and had my opinion changed 🖤 . . . ❄️Hosts❄️ @bethanysmithyoga @emmitheyogi @kelleyapril @lizfair_ @yogaforthegwinn @yogimegs . . ☃️Sponsors☃️ @aloyoga @alo.moves . . . #sideangle #twist #bundh #mountains #yogaoutside #aloyoga #aloyogachallenge #strongyogi #selflove #blueridgeparkway #asana #yogagirl #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #yoga #myyogajourney

10 years ago, I was 16 years old, I went to high school in Sweden and I was fearless and shit scared at the very same time. So, what’s changed? Well, for one I’m not in school anymore. Or at least not at the moment. Who knows anything about what life is going to be like? 🤷‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 2009 I was skipping school and classes A LOT, because I couldn’t deal with it. Sometimes I went because the teacher was inspiring or the subject interesting. Family, relatives, depression, anxiety, self harm, suicidal ideation, overdoses, fostering, social services, you name it - it was all present. The “typical teenager high school” behaviour except heavy drug use and alcohol abuse somewhat escaped my life. I was a young girl with no clue as to how to live my life, but I did it the best way I knew how. This photo on the top was taken by a friend of mine from school and it was probably during a class that we chose to skip, going to a fast food restaurant and eating chilli cheese with pepper in the parks of Malmö. I was barely home, working constantly until late nights and hanging out at the city library in my time off as I never wanted to go home, where only more suffering and fear was waiting. I would work every single day, if I managed to get out of bed that is, and come home around midnight at the earliest - but I was almost never out socialising. I wouldn’t be able to sleep soundly so I used to fall asleep around 4 or 5 in the mornings and sleep most of the days to catch up. I was shopping my own food and cooked it, shopping my own clothes and washed them. Partying, dancing, night clubs, drugs or drinking was never really appealing to me. My mind was filled with something else. I think we become so caught up in our own pain and world of worries we don’t see anything else around us. It’s both a curse and a blessing. Fast forward and I’m still shit scared of life. Yep, you heard it right. I have fears, I have insecurities, I have vulnerability, I screw up, again and again. But I speak up more. I stand up for myself more. I fight for what I want. I go after what calls deep within me. It all comes with more reason and meaning now. #10YearChallenge

Q U A L I T Y. what does the word mean to you? . to me, quality is about being proud to share the work that you do. it’s about giving value and purpose to your work. it’s an aspect of instructing that was emphasized by my teacher. i will always prioritize and always value creating quality work. when people can share in your passion and feel that your heart has gone into every word and every movement, you connect on a beautiful, soulful level. 🧜🏼‍♀️ . . . . . #ashtanga #feeltheyogahigh #flexibility #healthyyogi #igyogafam #igyogacommunity #namaste #mindbodygram #morningpractice #myyogajourney #practiceandalliscoming #practicemakesprogress #selflove #travellingyogini #wanderlust #yogainspiration #blessedyogi #yogalove #mermaidpose #ekapadarajakapotasana #aloyoga #mtl

Still working to refine the arch of foot more closer and in the pit with toes gently gripping the back of shoulders. Next step will be to sit up and lengthen torso and clip the foot securely under pit hahaha... give it a try?
