Reverse plank is slowly becoming one of my favourite poses, and it’s really good for strengthening the lower back and the backside of the arms! It also has the benefit of being a heart opener - encouraging to take love and light in!
Sideplank variations hurray! Amazing core exercise, especially for your arms/shoulders, core and hips!!! They are demanding at first but regular practice and stamina will get you there!!
What is your favourite side plank???
Bhagavad Gītā: “yoga is not for him who gorges too much, nor for him who starves himself. It is not for him who sleeps too much, nor for him who stats awake. By moderation in eating and in resting, by regulation in working and by concordance in sleeping and waking, Yoga destroys all pain and sorrow.”
I’m really working on my backbends but having two disc prolapse makes it very delicate and requires a lot of listening and adjusting!! It’s a great motivation to stay true to my body but also heart wrenching to have lost so much mobility and flexibility!
Day 17 of freeyogis september challenge is loveyourself and I’ve had a small period of just posting the first picture I take without correcting or adjusting and then taking another… Sometimes they are difficult to post and difficult to accept that thats what I look like. Other times I get pics like this which I love, the difficult part is Loving myself in both situations! bexmaddyhealthyhappymotivationyogariansunny-yogiyogawithkarel
Day 14 of summersplits2014 with kinoyoga & beachyogagirl on my #dailyrun - it’s impossible to be in a bad mood when the weather is good so I have to decide wether to be inside and in a bad mood of sod it all and go outside with the risk of feeling happier… I chose the later :)
I am gonna go ahead and post This with no filters or retouching. It was a wonderful spot, wonderful colors, wonderful pose! I am psyked That yogipeach and yogini-dreams are hosting a mini challenge (I Call Them mimi challenges haaahaha:) You are huge inspirations to Me and finding this challenge made my day!!
Sadhana day 13! A quick handstand before I go to yoga class! It has been ages since I’ve been to an actual class and I even forgot my own mat! But being in a room full of yogis was really quite inspiring and the environment is really encouraging! Although I am really into ashtanga these days, two hours of hatha was really inspiring and we even worked on handstands! It’s given me renewed energy for the final week of this journey!
Going back to the wall in order to perfect my drop into backbend… Sometimes I feel like it’s an enormous step backwards when I go back to pre-exercises, but then again it’s an enormous step forward to be able to admit that I need it :)
