Full moon is in Leo, the embodiment of powerful fire energy. Shango, Ra, Hathor, Sekmet. Use this energy to create greater clarity and direction, don’t be afraid, there is nothing to fear. You can do it! It is still the beginning of the year, what are you manifesting in 2019? This is a time to re-dedicate your live to your Highest Spiritual Purpose. It’s not a time for excuses, procrastination, small games and I’ll do it later. Nooo Do it now!! Fire will clear your path, cleansing is vital for progress because it clears the way for energy to flow freely. Spiritually cleanse your home, remove any stagnant energy so it’s not holding you back. Take a cleansing bath and prepare to step up, as you commit you’ll receive all the wonderful gifts life has in store for you.
Remember; the best way to predict your future is to get up and create it now.

- #alliscoming2019 Yoga Challenge
Day Four 💥💥💥💥
Asana: Pincha Myurāsana
One of my favorite quotes from Martin Luther King loosely states if the world were to end tomorrow that would not stop him from planting a tree today—what a profound message in that it doesn’t always matter where the results of our work will lead but the fact we put the work in to change for the better is what’s important.
It’s easy to get caught up in a results oriented mentality, even in yoga practice; however we may be missing the essential beauty of what the present moment brings—whether triumphant or utter failure there is something there to embrace.
One of the deepest challenges we face in our human community is apathy, thinking yeah somebody will get it done. Let the other guy do the dirty work. Or the world is going to hell anyway why try to change—it’s an uphill battle. In many ways we can’t look too far ahead but yet deal with what faces us from moment to moment. What little things can be done now? This is vital. Remember no effort is wasted. It counts, and the fact you are on this earth means you count too!
We have the opportunity to cultivate this in our own practice and hopefully take it out into the world. Take the challenges of practice one breath at a time. Don’t get to caught up in the result. Stop asking where will this lead? What will I get? What is someone else doing? Breath in. Breath out. The beauty of the present moment is all you need. Then get to work! ❤️ #yogainspiration #livetrue

- Trust. It can be scary as hell. It can be hard to rebuild once broken but boy oh boy does everything feel lighter once you allow yourself to trust. 💛

- Have you ever watched your yoga teacher come into a 🤸♂🏼 pose & felt exhausted 😩😫 just looking at them 👀?!...Only to ignore your body's signals and copy them anyway? (Guilty!) 😅
@Melisfit_ shared her experience of this tug-and-pull thought process—on one hand, wanting to do 🐫 camel pose like a majority of the class, and on the other, dying to just sit in 🧘♀🏼 Hero pose because she felt 🤢 nauseous that day!
Do you push yourself 🤪 to attend yoga classes no matter how you're feeling, or do you tune into your body 🤗 and take a rest day? 🤷♀🏻💤🛌 Please follow me: -@welove_yogaa

- Today's @yogafeature is Splits turorial by @riva_g_ 🤗🙏
If you’re working on getting deeper into your splits, and the struggle is real (ie. the first part of this video is all too relatable 😹) don’t feel bad. We’ve all been there before (well, most of us have anyway👌🏼).
The thing is, you’re unlikely to make much progress with this approach, and even if you do manage to get a little lower down, it probably won’t feel great once you’re there.
So let's look at a couple options that will allow you to lower down with ease, & maybe even help you find some comfort in Hanumanasana. 🙌🏼
First we need to warm up the hamstrings & hip flexors. You can start with some of the moves I’m doing in my warm up (which was sped up to fit in this video):
- Forward fold (2 min)
- Downward Dog (2 min)
- Three-Legged Down Dog leg pulses (at least 20 reps on each side)
- Low lunge (2 min)
- Lizard (1 min)
- Runners stretch (2 min)
Then you can try one of the following (or both) approaches:
Option 1: Grab some blocks & a blanket (or towel). Place the blocks directly under the hip of your front leg. Put the heel of that foot on top of the blanket (this helps you lower down smoothly). Now activate the hamstrings in your front leg (& keep them active the whole time!) Tuck the toes of your back foot under, and make sure both hips stay square to the front of the mat. Slowly lower down by sliding your front foot forward until you feel a nice deep stretch (but not a painful one - you may need to adjust the blocks to the best height).
Option 2: Place the heel of your front foot on the blanket, and think of the blocks as ‘extensions’ of your arms. This will help you keep the spine long & the hips square as you lower down. Activate your hamstrings and slowly lower by sliding your front foot forward until you feel a nice deep stretch. You can keep the toes tucked or untuck them at the end. 👣
👉🏼 Don’t forget to breathe, and then repeat on the other side.
Did you guys find this helpful? Tag a friend who is working on their splits, & let me know if you want me to keep sharing more of these tutorials! ❤️
Happy practicing! 😍
