yoga bind

Bound Squat Pose, aka Ardha Baddha Parivrtta Malasana, is a deep chest and hip opener. The tighter the bind, the more the chest is broadened and the hips and stretched. Bound squat is also the precursor to Standing Marichi Pose. Expect plenty of deep hip openers in both of my classes this weekend listed below. See you there!

anonymous asked:

So I have gym next year, but it's not really gym. We're doing things like dancing and yoga. Can I wear my binder?

Lee says:

Yoga should be okay, and dancing depends on how vigorous so it depends. I’d bring a sports bra in case you need to change out of it. Have you looked through Our binding FAQ? There’s other helpful binding info there too if you’re new to binding :)

I’ve been contending with this pose for 5 years. Especially on the left side. The medial rotation of my femur bone hits something and there’s sharp pain in my groin. I have very tight adductors. But since ive lost 14 lbs. in the last four months, somehow better torso rotation makes up for my tight adductors. (Wether we wanna admit it or not, the belly gets in the way of the rotation and the bind).

Or maybe i just became ready. The hips feel slightly more open. finally i’m in a place where i don’t have to hold my emotions in. I feel like i can let my emotions and thoughts out and i’m heard. This has released so much tension from my 2nd chakra.

BUT It’s still not easy. The practice is such hard work. But that’s the point: to put in hard work regardless of the outcome. One day there will be ease and more space to move in, but then there will be something else to contend with. The point to keep moving but to still be appreciative of the Now. There’s only now. 😊Marichyasana D.

The earlier you get up, the more time you have in your day to get everything done, which, like yoga lessens stress levels. So, join me Thursday morning at 6:30am @sanghayogashala to watch the sunrise as you open your body and mind to the infinite possibilities of the day ahead. See you there!

When I practice yoga at home, I tend to do what my body wants, what my mind needs and what my heart and soul are calling out for.

This is great but I often find myself flowing into the same poses again and again and forgetting about some of the ones that I practiced in class—so I put together a couple sequences of poses that I want to practice more often! I did this mostly for myself but I wanted to share it with the beautiful yoga community that inspired me to do this in the first place!

Here is a simple one to start—something grounding and opening. I like to do a couple sun salutations before I begin and do a vinyasa or two after each pose. But do what makes sense for you! It’s your practice!
