I love the ocean 🌊 . I love the feeling of expansion, strength and prana (life force energy) that flows. I breathe it in and let it fill my lungs, and like sparkly magic it flows through me.✨
Whether by the sea or not, the breath is one of my favourite ways to centre, ground and bring me present. I love the simplicity of it and how the breath is something that’s always with me that I can use.
In Saturday’s Hatha Yoga Class we’ll be really focusing on the magic of the breath and the flow prana in our bodies and around us. A few spots available. Message for details 😊.

India, Tailândia e Indonesia. Mais uma vez. Foram muitos aprendizados. De todas as formas. Foram mais estudos, mais conhecimento agregado. E foram mais experiências... de vida mesmo. Até porque o que é a espiritualidade senão a vida em si, o desafio do dia a dia?! Consegui enxergar meu materialismo espiritual. E que é só mais um tipo de consumismo. Sim, melhor consumir algo que trará autoconhecimento e levará autoconhecimento do que consumir apenas um objeto ou experiência ordinária qualquer... Mas não deixa de ser consumismo. Enfim... estou de volta rs às mídias sociais (pq simplesmente não dá pra manter durante processos profundos de mudança) e em alguns dias de volta ao Brasil... quaaase que não volto rs quase.!
Today someone close to me admitted (inadvertently) that things didn't really pan out for me, that I was nowhere near where my talents led others to believe I would be. That hurts. A lot. Especially coming from someone who is full of light and love. She illuminated for me a lot about the expectations vs. stark real-life perceptions people have. But it's times like these where I need to let go. Let it roll off or unhealthy addictions develop. What should be important to me isn't necessarily what is accomplished everyday anymore, but treating the people who matter most as well as I can and giving them the time and what little light I have left to make their days just a little bit better. As well as finding physical and creative outlets, taking small steps toward self-love. ❤️
I'm a Goddess on the rise. I used to attract very emotionally abusive people into my life and fall head over heels in love 🙄 Years and knowledge later I understand that those experiences broke me so that I could REBUILD myself and AWAKEN the GODDESS within. Thank you to all of my lovers, thank you to all that pain. #EndieSummers#Healing#Yoga#Yogi#HermeticLaws#HolisticHealth#Oshun#HathaYoga

Happy birthday Brook! You’re an amazing teacher @ropebridge and we appreciate your attention to detail, your perseverance and calm strength. Thank you for your commitment. 🙏🏽 #scorpio
So...gonna shout it out loud.. #backpain is a real b*%$! I use yoga daily to help me manage chronic pain issues from old injury. Some days I surprise myself & others the balloon bursts & I overdo something & sulk for ages about going backwards. But yoga helps me mentally & physically stay strong especially when I'm mobility limited..irony much?? This gentle floor variation of #suryanamaskar#sunsalutation is a lifesaver for my back on days when even lying down hurts. I enjoyed flowing with this & adding to it intuitively this morning. And was super excited when I saw the vid I took to check my alignment...despite feeling so stiff & limited in my range at the moment I can actually see that my alignment & practise have come so far. Can't say it enough. Love your body, as it is, now. Love it enough to practise daily & work with it to be the happiest you because #yogaismorethanasana 😘

Working towards Tittibhasana/ Firefly Pose
This arm balance works equal parts strength and flexibility. Although the hips needs to be open enough to bring the thighs by the shoulder, the ability to stay in this pose is all about:
1️⃣ Stability in the hips - pressing the thighs inwards & hugging the outer hips in; and
2️⃣ Lift in the core - finding the lift in the base of the pelvic floor, and creating that slight scoop to lengthen the tailbone down, simultaneously engaging the lower belly.
The first 3 poses focuses on the flexibility aspect of the pose - hamstrings and outer hip. But even so, the above mentioned 2 stability points should still apply. Instead of letting the legs relax, work on pressing the thighs inwards, hugging the outer hip in. And in all these poses, the lift in the core should still be present (think mula bandha).
The 4th & 5th pose works some of the strength aspect that is usually forgotten in this pose - the strength of the hip flexors, and the lift in the core to keep the hips lifted. In both these poses, try to keep the legs relaxed and focus on originating the lift from the core. You can round the back a little and think about lengthening the tailbone down, almost like you’re scooping the lower belly in slightly.
Tortoise pose is a great prep pose without adding the arm balance element. Make sure the feet aren’t too wide apart (mat width apart), and keep working on pressing the thighs into the shoulders. And even here, the lower belly should be active to keep the spine supported.
Swipe ⬅️ to view a video of the last 3 variations. If it’s a challenge to keep the leg on the shoulder, bend the elbows to the sides a little to create a mini shelf. If placing the palms flat on the floor is a challenge, use blocks under the palm.
Work first on lifting one foot off, and trying to straighten the top leg. Also consider working on hip lifts - place a block under the bum, and work on lifting the hips and slowly lowering back down. This gives a good understanding on how to eventually lower the hips with control in the full pose.
