Lovin all the body positi

Lovin all the body positivity coming from this challenge. I never thought I'd be posting nude pics of myself, but I figured why not? We all have naked bodies and I'm proud of all the work I've put into my yoga practice over the last 2 years. I'm self taught and really impressed with the way my body has transformed because of it. It amazes me every time I try something that's difficult and over time and practice it becomes easier. Yoga not only has transformed my body but my mind as well. I used to be very depressed for many different reasons, and not many people understand it so I rarely talk about it. I still haven't overcome it, but every day it gets better and easier. I read so many inspirational messages from so many of you and it makes my heart happy. I don't always have something inspirational to say myself, but I hope over time I can open up with myself just as I have through my yoga. Namaste my dear yogi friends and have a wonderful Tuesday! #StripDownAsanas Day 7 is favourite splits. I've been working on my middle splits but that has been a long and slow process. I'm not quite there yet so here is my monkey pose.

Feeling playful, so I linked up side plank to hanumanasa and turned over to urdhva dhanurasana. If you watch my back foot, you'll see it's really calling the shots here. Rotating from the edge to the toes turns the hips in preparation for hanumanasa, and the tuck under of the back toes initiates the lift to downward facing dog, etc. The full sequence would be Downdog, plank--side plank, side plank big toe hold variation, hanumanasa, 3 legged down dog, wild thing momentarily---urdhva dhanurasana and stand up to 1 dropback. Repeat on the other side. #yoga #yogateacher #homepractice #yogini #yogaeveryday #yogaeverydamnday #practice #hamstrings #hanumanasana #hanumanasanavariation #splits #frontsplits #splitstraining #sideplankvariation #vasisthasana #sideplank #dropbacks #downwarddog #downwardfacingdog #urdhvadhanurasana #wildthingpose #camatkarasana #backbend #backbendpractice #yogavideo #playful #justforfun

Slow down to experience t

Slow down to experience the life you live to its fullest sensations. Had the most incredible experience teaching a yin-style meditative yoga class with 3 resort goers at @pangkorlautresort yesterday afternoon. 2 of them had class with me in the morning and said during intro/sharing time that they had already been practicing mindfulness and stopping to observe and see the things they would normally have missed - like the behavior of the crabs on the boulder rocks at different tide levels. As a #yogateacher, we often overlook the ability to leave a longer lasting impression on or students. Teaching 'adults' who have been managing teams, businesses, careers, families, etc - it's been an honor to be reminded that even as someone in her 20s, I can help reawaken someone's soul and senses within an hour - and what that can meet in their life, work, interactions, habits... can create an effect. Sometimes we give people what they signed up for. Sometimes, we give them more. Last 4 days on this private 5-star island, will be sad to leave again Amazing staff and experience (my villa over the water is on the right!) . . . . . . #namaste #yogateacherjourney #pangkorlautresort #handsintheair #splits #hanumanasana #spavilla #infinitypool #yogaeverydamnday #islandyoga #beachyoga #iloveislands #paradise #islandgirl

An extract on #hanumanasana

The name comes from the Sanskrit words Hanuman (a divine entity in Hinduism who resembles a monkey) and asana (posture), and commemorates the giant leap made by Hanuman to reach the Lankan islands from the mainland of India.

The yogi pushes one leg forward and one leg backwards until they are in the splits position. Once the yogi has moved the legs into position, there are several variations of arm and upper body position including Ajali Mudr.

Version 1: Starting from a lunge, bring down the back knee. Raise the arms forwards and up. Version 2: The same as version 1, but with the back knee elevated and extended with back foot in dorsiflexion (toes tucked, heel lifted).

Use of bandhas increase the stability of the body in this asana. Both mula bandha (root lock) and uddiyana bandha (abdominal lock) may be engaged. This combination creates an axial extension in the spine which assists in supporting in the torso as the chest is brought up and back. A "sternal crunch" can be substituted for the bandhas here, also creating axial extension and helping draw the psoas major into a deeper stretch.

Stretches the hip flexors namely the iliopsoas, rectus femoris and sartorius. Releases tension in the rear of the hips (glutes, piriformis) which may relieve sciatica. Balance. Strengthens supporting muscles for the knees. Builds mental focus.
