Today I was playing a bit in the bridge #urdhvadhanurasana 🏹. It’s not easy pose for beginner nor for long-term pratctiotioner. There is always a plays to approche to harder lever, step of backbending. It requires open shoulders and lower back, strength in your arms, shoulders and front legs and stamina as well. When you miss something you suffer😀but good thing is you can work on everything step by step.
Big issue for a lot of people is to feel grounded on your feet. Most of people have no idea where is up where is down when they start to practice, but when you start to realize what are doing your feet during your Urdhva dhanurasana you can work on it. Not having fingers outward, keep your heels grounded, do gentle inward rotation with your legs. There’re many many things happening, to be concious what you’re doing, that is what matters. Not that it looks awesome. But constantly working on your limits a push them gantle forward❤️🙏🏻🌼. #wishyouniceday •

WELCOME POLLY // Polly will be covering the Wednesday evening Flow & Yin class for the next 6 weeks while Anna assists a teaching training in Sri Lanka. A bit about Polly - Polly has been teaching Yoga since 2013, and is particularly passionate about the mental health benefits of a regular yoga practice, having changed her own relationship with Self and decreasing anxiety through regular Pranayama, Asana, Meditation and Svadhaya (self-study).
It is from this journey of self-acceptance and healing Polly finds her motivation to teach and inspire others along the yogic path.
Having originally trained with the Byron Yoga Centre, she has trained and practiced with many other teachers and although she chooses not to align herself to one particular style she takes her inspiration from many schools of Yoga and teachers from the more traditional Viniyoga to Prana Flow (Shiva Rea), Embodied Flow (Tara Judelle) and most importantly, her own personal practice.
She enjoys teaching Yin, and a slow, fluid, Vinyasa flow with an emphasis on breath awareness, mindful slow transitions and self-reflection.
Looking forward to seeing you on the mat! Wednesday 5:45pm & 7pm classes.

When it’s Monday and you’re already wondering-isn’t it Shavasana yet?! 😴
I may not have written as much of my diss as I wanted to this weekend, but I have made a good start and dent into the workload. But most importantly I have made a plan and timetable for ‘how to keep the workload manageable and me sane’. Those who know me know I love a good plan and a timetable (better yet a list I can tick things off) so be prepared for this masterpiece, it’s my best yet 🤓🧘🏼♀️
It finally happened 😜I still don’t believe it and have pillows as yoga tools 😂😂 for soft landing 🙈 #urdvadhanurasana#dropbacks#ashtanga The one thing I certainly learned from ashtanga practice, what was missing in my character, is that if you can’t do something today, it doesn’t mean you have to drop it. Just don’t stop, and sooner or later it will come #practiceandalliscoming. It’s also applicable to life, and how! So much things to learn from it. Если долго мучаться, что нибудь получится:)
Йога удивительный процесс исследования себя, помимо возможностей своего тела, ощущений мышц и клеток, о которых ты раньше даже не подозревал и работа с ними, их тренировка и формирование нейронных связей для управления ими, ты также начинаешь погружение и исследование своего духа/души/собственного эго и множество другого скрытого внутри тебя, начинаешь наблюдать и замечать реакции на действия из вне и собственные эмоциональные воздействия на организм и клетки. И наступает рано или поздно, хочешь ты этого или нет 😀 когда этим начинаешь делиться с окружающими, кто готов внимать, и находится пути к саморазвитию и исследованию себя. А все это к тому, что с этой недели до моего отъезда 4.02 в Индию, возобновляются практики аштанга виньяса йоги по будням - Вторник и Четверг в 18:30, ну и воскресную флоу виньясу никто не отменял 😉 Жду вас на практиках 🙏✌
I try to journal every day. It forces me to think of the essence of my day. Today I didn’t had to wait until my day was over to know what I wanted to put down in my journal: today I finally informed my teacher about the growing pain I feel on my right lower back when working on my drop backs! It may seem nothing special, but to me, informing my teacher is admitting the pain and accepting the consequences of stopping the drop backs for a while, despite the progress I was doing and despite my urge to master my back bends. But the urge of mastering is only ego. Get rid of all expectations, be humble, patient and dedicated to the practice. This is what you need in Ashtanga Yoga. Thank you to my teacher Nea @ashtangayogadubai for your constant presence and reminding that it’s ok to take it easier sometimes!🙏🧘♀️ #ashtanga#yogaeverydamnday#yogaindubai#listentoyourbody#backbend#dropback#journaling#everydaylife

Shallalalalabasana..🤪 Yoga can easily become too strict and almost isolating in the sense that IF the one doing it always needs to be alone, go deep inside etc etc.. In family life it is so important for me to keep it playful and non - strict. The kids can always join if they want to, and then we can have a laugh or two 😂😜❤️👍
Whether you are a new yogi trying to build a foundation of strength in your modified vinyasa before advancing poses or you are a regular practitioner with sore muscles or suffering joint pain... knowing how to modify your vinyasa is so helpful if it’s something you do regularly in class or at home.
In class teachers may just say, “and vinyasa” without really taking the time to break it down for those who need to modify.
So I hope this helps you to find ways to modify yours so when you need to do so in class, you can without scrambling around trying to keep up with the class as you figure out what you’re supposed to be doing.
Remember modifying doesn’t mean you don’t get the same benefit as everyone else, because you do! You are just lightening the load on your joints and making it a tad easier on your muscles. Stay humble, enjoy the journey, and embrace where you are now! Honor your body, always.
Only had a minute to work with, so it was a little fast of an explanation.
Here is a short break down:
-Forward fold with bent knees. Keep connection with thighs and lower belly. Keep length in spine.
-Plank with knees on ground and lower into modified chaturanga. Elbows stay pressed into your side.
-Lower on to the belly before inhaling to low cobra. Shoulder blades pressing into eachother, keep shoulders rolled down back.
-Move through child’s pose, fold toes under, and up into downdog.
-Down dog with bent knees. Shoulders away from ears, space for neck to move. Lengthened spine, spread your fingers!
Hope this helps!

We’ve been practicing in a beautiful little beach Shala that has a mirror on one wall. Mirrors are fascinating to use during practice— so useful for alignment. But for my everyday practice, no mirrors. I want to use my time on the mat to connect with my source, not my reflection.
This mirror is especially beautiful as it’s reflecting my wife, @vesic_jelena 💙

Na prática de Ashtanga yoga , aprendi que devo ficar quietinha nas luas nova e cheia. Na lua nova, o corpo fica mais rígido (😳+?) O problema é que uso salto alto 👠 em qualquer 🌓 🌒 🌑 isso encurta os posteriores. Então., eu dou uma esticadinha como quem não quer nada e espero a nova fase da lua. O nome desta postura é padahastasana; no popular: postura da mão no pé 😳. Dizem que combate até problemas gástricos. Para mim, é um desafio, como cada asana. #ashtanga#padahastasana
“A CELEBRATION OF WEIRD Don’t become a spiritual zombie, devoid of passion and deep human feeling. Let spirituality become a celebration of your uniqueness rather than a repression of it. Never lose your quirkiness, your strangeness, your weirdness – your unique and irreplaceable flavour. Don’t try or pretend to be ‘no-one’ or ‘nothing’ or some transcendent and impersonal non-entity with ‘no self’ or ‘no ego’, ‘beyond the human’ – that’s just another conceptual fixation and nobody’s buying it any more. Be a celebration of what your unique expression is and stop apologising. Fall in love with this perfectly divine, very human mess that you are. There is no authority here, and no way to get life wrong. So get it all wrong. Fail, gloriously.” - Jeff Foster

This week’s Yogi Assignment is Sukha, the Sanskrit word for Ease. If you’re stressing out about the small details and worrying about how everything is going to work out you may miss the simple beauty that surrounds you. If you’re able to shift your mind to ease and flow, then you’ll walk through even the most difficult moments of your life with grace. Take the lesson of Sukha into the hardest poses of your practice. Ask yourself how you can find a space of peace even amidst great challenge. Whether that means accepting that your hips aren’t open yet and learning to love them anyway, or it means softening your practice instead of pushing too hard, move yourself into ease and flow.
Self-soothing is a skill that is often hard to learn. When life feels overwhelming you need tools to calm your nervous system. Whether it’s getting a massage, sprinkling a bit of lavender oil, going for a walk, practicing yoga or spending time in prayer, finding moments of ease and flow in your life gives you an emotional safe space to heal. You’re not avoiding the pain by self-soothing, you’re giving yourself the foundation to heal.
