Strength is the foundation of flexibility. Flexibility is the hidden secret to strength. Those who are stiff must learn how to bend while those who are bendy must learn how not to break . This is the journey of yog . Namaste 🙏 . . #parivrtajanusirsasana #twisting #goddesspose #standingsplits #yogaeverydamnday #yoginilife

Aren't we always working on perfecting those lines? Me too, almost everyday. But this challenge is special to me. There was a time I went right away into splits, no warm up, nothing. (Yikes! I know ) Working on my splits, I realized was a lot more about getting there. So here I am, my imperfect self, just about getting there. .

This is yoga with kids. 😎⁣ ⁣ ⁣ They knew I was trying to balance and decided to give me a little extra challenge. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Ben is in the back, making a strong alibi. ⁣😏 ⁣ ⁣ Day 4 of #yogisbuildingheat is any balance pose. I opted for sugarcane—with water blasters—outside in the heat. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I’m also using this as my splits entry for @_balance_in_life_ and her #thursdayswesplit hashtag.

#Repost @rebekahletch with @make_repost ・・・ There is no turning back to yesterday or to last month, or to last year... no matter how much you wish you could go back and live there again or how much you wish you could change what happened, you just can’t go back... you have to keep moving forward, my beautiful friend. You have to summon all your inner strength to let go of who you were then and use all of your courage and faith to focus on who you want to be now- who you want to be tomorrow. It might take everything you have to let go of yesterday, but once you do, you can start finding peace today. 🐍 . . . 📸: @bryankennedybk . .

Bear with me here. The two photos aren't *that* different, especially for my better side. But the way it FEELS is INSANELY different.⁠ 😃👍⁠ Standing splits is one of those poses where you often feel like that lifted leg is WAY up there and then you open your eyes and notice that your leg is barely more than parallel with the ground.⁠ 🙈⁠ It's not the lifted leg's fault - we often focus so much more on the stretch at the hamstring of the standing leg and most of us figure that when that flexibility gets better, the lifted leg will just magically float higher to the ceiling.⁠ 🎈⁠ Working your #frontsplits or #hanumanasana will definitely help, but how can we make that lifted leg smarter when it's not in contact with the floor? How can we train the brain to engage that leg and lift it higher when we might not be fully aware of where that leg is in space to begin with? How can we strengthen the muscles around the hip of that lifted leg at end range so that they can squeeze that leg even higher?⁠ 🤔⁠ 🔅Come to standing splits at the wall - even if the standing foot is not that close to the wall to start.⁠ 🔅Place the top of the foot on the wall. Press into the hands and the foot on the wall so that the foot on the floor hovers. PULL the hovering foot towards the body. Hold for a count of 10.⁠ 🔅Plant the bottom foot back on the floor, maybe closer to the wall. Engage the glutei of the top leg and PULL that leg away from the wall - trying to keep the leg as straight as possible. Hold for a count of 10.⁠ 🔅Repeat this cycle as many times as you like - I recommend at least 3. When you reach your max, take several breaths in the stretch, staying active through both legs.⁠ 🔅Before releasing, do one more hover of the top leg away from the wall.⁠ 🔅Re-test your standing splits and see how it feels!⁠ 🤸‍♀️⁠ This drill any many more strategies for strengthening and deepening your splits is featured in my Happy Hanumanasana classes up on my website (link in bio ).⁠ 👖 by @miamifitwear SUPER COMFY!

A little time lapse of me conceptualising this weeks class. I build sequences based on a theme or concept and then I experiment with how different poses fit and flow together. Sometimes I really like to mix things up, sometimes I like to repeat what I know works. I might take inspiration from some of my favourite movement makers and use music to help me move + flow. Sometimes I love what comes out and other times it doesn’t always work but I appreciate the learning process and the creative freedom I have. It’s my art through movement. 💞✨ —————————————— #hipopener #hipopeningsequence #hipflow #backbend #wildthingpose #lizardpose #warrior3 #standingpigeon #standingsplits #yogavideo #vinyasaflowvideo #yogamobility #mobilitymovement #creativeyoga #yogavinyasa #cairnsyoga #yogateacher #yogashapes #onandoffthemat #yogaismorethanasana #yogaflow #vinyasavideo #yoga #yogagirl #yogajourney #yogaasana #yogathoughts #yogacommunity #_yoga_friends #yogaselfpractice

"Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play." Heraclitus Standing Splits / Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana When I first tried this in class, I didn't know what was happening behind me or what my body was doing. Explore and play with variations, embrace the wobbles :- ) Root down through the standing leg, lengthen the spine and reach through the lifted leg, gradually testing out your wings (maybe hands to hips, thigh, shin, ankle or floor ). Benefits: stretches and strengthens the legs and hips, improves balance and calms the mind. #urdhvaprasaritaekapadasana #standingsplits #yogainversions #yogabalance #yogastrength #yogacalm #yogajourney #yogapractice #yogaplay #yogaforall #yogachallenge #yogafocus #yogabenefits

A leap of faith 💫👣⚡️ Day 7: #splitspose #hanumanasana #onzieflexiyoga Honoring the great leap made by Hanuman, the famous monkey god from the Ramayana, is Hanumanasana (hah-new-mahn-AHS-anna ), or front splits pose. A physical representation of the leap Hanuman made, which took him across the ocean from the tip of India to the mountains in Sri Lanka, front splits pose demands flexibility, strength, and stability. When practiced with careful alignment and proper muscle engagement, Hanumanasana can alleviate discomfort associated with sciatica issues. 💖Hosts: @lightfulyogini2 .0 @micoldelloro @mingweikok @nica .liew @olga_gafita . . 💖Sponsor: @onzie PHYSICAL BENEFITS: * Stretches hamstrings, groin, and hip flexors. * Strengthens the muscles of the pelvic floor and abdomen. ENERGETIC BENEFITS: * Increases devotion, kindness, and selflessness. * Chakras : root and sacral #yoga #yogi #splitvariations #splits #standingsplits #igyogachallenge #yogini #yogacolombia #strength #power #empower #befree #bepresent #befearless #radiance #postiveenergy #energywork #empoweringhumans #namaste ❤️🦄🌎🇨🇴☀️🌈🌴🙏

Less resistance, more space both physically and mentally. Looking back these few years, I was so obsessed to nail any type of challenging and impressive poses. But when we're truly happy with ourselves, we don't need to appeal to anyone including ourselves. We're just happy with our presence. And probably that's the time our practice shift into the next phase ✨

. It's not what we practice, it's how we practice. Having been practicing this active stretch more to avoid the unnecessary injuries. Cos I have had so many injuries from minor to major ones. And it really sucks... . Most of the injuries, for yogis, happened when the specific MUSCLES ARE NOT ENGAGED ENOUGH. Particularly in the split, we pull more than what our body can take, which causes hamstrings injury. Same in #hanumanasana . Hamstrings can't take the stretch when they are relaxed, and gravity is taking over. We need to have so much intelligence in our body how to get into the pose even if you're super flexible. Strength is MUST for all of us! Try to get into #standingsplits with no hands. No pulling. See how much you can fold forward, see how much you can lift your top leg to know your range of mobility. No ego, no attachment. Honour your body 🙏❤️ . . . . #YRCyogatips #myyogajourney #yogalove #flexibility #onandoffthemat #yogamom #onebreathatatime #strongisbeautiful #inversionjunkie #yogainspiration #yogafam #yogaphotography #yogaholic #feeltheyogahigh #inspiredyogis #aerialist #polefitness #pilates #fitnesslifestyle #healthylifestyle #aloyoga #beagoddess #yogaforeveryone #yogatips #practicenotperfection #practicedaily #practiceandalliscoming #ヨガ

O N E P O I N T . When we listen to some amazing music, taste incredible food or feel something really deeply we often close our eyes. By blocking one sense we heighten the others. . In yoga we do this too - we call it #ekagraha or One (ek- ) Point (-graha ) Focus or perhaps Single Point Focus. You might hear your yoga teacher talk about “drishti” or keeping your eyes focused on a point too. Firstly this helps with balance if you are standing on one leg 😉 but it also brings your attention to a single point removing distraction and heightening our other senses. . Perfect thoughts for a Monday right?! - one point focus - Go! . #splits #standingsplits #flexibility #balance #focus #drishti #yogi #yoga #instayogi #islandgirl #antiguaandbarbuda #whatcoollookslike #antigua #yogaclass #splitsgoals #dharana #splitslovers #yogaforlife #yogaphoto #fitnessgirls #gymnasticslife #strengthtraining #beachbodyworkout #beachyoga #crazysexyyoga #middlesplits #placesfortravelling
