yoga strong

My fav lowkey sexist thing that men say is when they ask about my exercise routine and I tell them how I wanna build muscle and get stronger so I can hold myself up better during my yoga practice and they say “but you’re not gonna get too muscular, right?” …….. why? Are you afraid I’m gonna be able to kick your ass or something?

There’s a full moon tonight, peaking through the clouds and stirring up emotions. This is a time to reflect and let go of things and habits that no longer serve us. And then join me Tuesday morning at 7am @tangerinehotpoweryoga to sweat and let go of those emotions and thoughts, opening yourself up to a amazing next couple weeks before the big Eclipse. 🌝💫

Crow, aka Bakasana, is the root of all yoga arm balances and inversions. It can definitely seem scary when you first attempt to balance the weight of your body, on your hands, your face hovering just a few inches from the ground. But with practice, and the knowledge of which muscles to engage (think core), you start to lift and fly and decide that perhaps there are more arm balances in your future. Watching students stick this pose for the first time is always fun as their excitement becomes contagious. Expect to become contagiously excited, and leave feeling strong and open in and after all of my classes this weekend listed below.

This was inspired by a headcanon that I can’t find but I think I read on @melemillion’s tumblr (Correct me if I’m wrong?) that Bakugo joins Sero for yoga sometimes. And I could so see this as something they’d do together in a BakuSero scenario.

I was in yoga class, and I really suck at the whole clearing my mind part. I generally just try to think of relaxing things instead. So when I couldn’t stop thinking stressful thoughts about the latest BNHA chapter, I ended up thinking about relaxing BNHA headcanons instead lol.

Skandasana, aka Side Lunge, is a hip opener as well as a core strengthener. This pose creates space in the groin, hips and inner thigh, as well as the hamstrings. Engage your core to hold the pose either with your hands prayered at your heart or above your head. Join me at either or both of the classes listed below to see what this pose can do for you.

One of the things that I love about yoga is how each pose and sequence involves stretching AND strengthening. Notice how in the video above I’m strengthening my core as well as opening my hamstrings. Join me at 9:30am on Thursday morning @lucentyoga to get both longer AND stronger, all at the same time. See you soon!

Breathe that in.

Galavasana- flying pigeon pose.
Ashtanga third series is especially brutal because half way through the sequence you get to do 7 consecutive headstand to arm balance transitions, on each side, with vinyasas in between and no rest - super fun 😅!
It’s completely exhausting but that’s kind of the point. I tend to sneak in a few extra wrist stretches/ ponytail and clothing adjustments/ unnecessary toilet trips in between -stalling techniques just so I don’t drop dead. Bad lady - I know - I’m still working on my concentration skills. Baby steps!

Starting your day with yoga gets your body going while setting your mind at ease. Although it can sometimes be tough to get up earlier to make the time for your practice, it’s always worth it, as the rest of the day seems to always run more smoothly. So set your alarms just a wee bit earlier than normal and join me @sanghayogashala on Wednesday and Thursday at the times below.
Wed 7:30am - Core Vinyasa
Thurs 6:30am - Yoga Express Hour

TRX Plank Walks. Super simple but not super easy, it’s more than just a core exercise that works arms and shoulders.
.
The physics of the TRX’s position in relation to its anchor point (where the TRX is hanging) being in front of it and behind it at an angle, creates a force of being pulled back when in front and being pushed forward when behind. The further you move ahead of or behind the anchor, the greater the force. Imagine being in a high plank and someone is holding your feet wheel barrow style when they start pushing you forward but you have to keep your hands and arms in place preventing your shoulders from moving past your finger tips. Kinda the same principle. 
.
Try it. Any physics heads who can explain this clearer, I welcome your input! 😊
