Let your heart lead.

“You are being called to heal yourself,not to agonize over your mistakes. Quit overthinking; this is what surrendering really means. Don’t focus on your problems and don’t obsess about “fixing” things. Avoid forcing “positive thinking”. These thoughts can be psychological. Just leave yourself alone! When you pick at things they never heal. Simply relax and give yourself some time.”   (not why words, but couldnt find from who).



Creating Flexibility for Arm Balances


One reason why arm balances can be very challenging is that they require both strength and flexibility.

A great place to start your journey towards arm balances might be to create strength in the upper body and the abdominal muscles, never the less, having the capacity to twist and extend your body is going to make it so much more easy.

Any of the sitting twists, like Ardha Matsyendrasana, can help you to build intercostal space, body awareness and most important rotational flexibility in your spine something that is needed for asanas like Parsva Bakasana (Side Crane Pose).

If you don’t have yet the strength to lift your self up, perhaps foccusing in asanas like plank pose or dolphin pose, can be a place to spend some good hours in order to establish a solid foundation.

The process

How many times have you seen an image in Instagram, facebook or any media, and think…..wwwuoo this person is so amazing, they have a great practice.

Behind that “amazing” pic there are 1.000 attempts, hours and hours of practice, perhaps frustration, self judgment, many days where the person thought of quitting or got injured.

Yoga is a path, a choice, not valid for a seccond captured by a camera but by trying to keep connecting with ourselves and finding our own rhythms. So, what i’m trying to say here is, give yourself the acknowledgement of the beauty of your practice, of your process and the place where you are right now.

My your day be full of love…

Prasarita Padottanasana D

From Samasthiti inhale and with a softly jump or step move back off the right foot. Make a wide stance so that the feet are approximately under the hands, that are open wide as a T. Ground your feet are strongly, lifting the arches. On the next inhale place the hands onto the hips and lift the chest lengthening up through the front of the body. Engage uddiyana and mula bandha.  On the exhale encourage length as you lead with the chest out, forward and down.

The first two fingers take hold of the big toes and the elbows extended out over the feet.

Maintain length through the neck and push the elbows over the feet.
