  • ⚡️Are you ready to boost your energy?⚡️
.
Tomorrow is the first day of #YogaEnergyBoost, and we’re doing #warrior2.
.
For every day of this challenge, I’ll provide a mini tutorial of the full pose as well as a modification (swipe left).
.
A couple things I want to point out as we start this challenge:
✳️ While I’m not a yoga teacher, everything I say is based off what I’ve learned from yoga teachers, much time spent doing my own reading and research, and my own practice and experience.
✳️ Everyone’s anatomy is different. That means there is no one “right” alignment. What works for my body, may not work for your body.
.
So what does all that mean? It means it’s important to listen to your body. Don’t stress or strain. Don’t do something just because that’s what a tutorial says, if it doesn’t feel right for your body. If something I say works for your body, great, but if it doesn’t, you won’t hurt my feelings if you ignore it. And, finally, don’t worry what the pose looks like, because everyone will look a little different. Focus instead on what the pose feels like. 💖
.
Okay, disclaimers complete. 😉
.
When doing warrior 2, face your shoulders and hips to the long edge of your mat, and then engage everything, from the tips of your fingers to the tips of your toes. Warrior 2 is a foundational pose, but that doesn’t mean it’s simple. When done with full engagement, it’ll get very tiring very quickly. 😅
.
If you can’t bring your thigh parallel with the floor, that’s okay. Just shorten your stance (second picture), but continue to engage everything.
.
I’m looking forward to seeing all of your strong and energetic warriors. Be sure to check out my high-energy co-hosts for their variations and tips.

  • I TOTALLY AGREE!!!🍭
KEEP PORTLAND WEIRD
남들과 다르다고 해서 
당신이 틀린건 절대 아닙니다. 
당신은 남들이 갖지 않은 
다른 큰 재능을 가지고 있을 뿐입니다.
달라도 괜찮아요.
같음이 아닌 
다름이 인정받는,
비주류가 대세인 
그런 멋진 시대가 왔잖아요.
당신을 응원합니다.

  • I’m a day late to the #fallflexibility challenge, but that just means I get to check in TWICE! 🙏🏽⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Day 𝓸𝓷𝓮 mantra: “My life is moving forward perfectly. Every bump in the road is there for a reason”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This seemed perfect for the week ahead. Everything is moving forward as it should for me, and every bump in the road is meant to make me stronger. To help me grow and learn in my career. ✨⁣⁣
⁣⁣
What does being grounded mean to you? For me, it’s stability. It’s consistency. It’s strength 💪🏽⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Day 𝕥𝕨𝕠 mantra: “I am willing to let go of self-doubt. I surrender to love.”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Again, this mantra speaks straight to my soul. Today I lead a pre-conference meeting with about 15 other people. This is my hardest and most challenging pre-con to date. By ridding my thoughts of self-doubt and exuding confidence, I know I will successfully lead this meeting and become stronger 🙌🏽⁣⁣
⁣⁣
How are you going to let go of that self-doubt? To stop telling yourself know and believing that you can? I believe in you babe 💗⁣⁣

  • This challenge wouldn’t be complete without a Warrior pose thrown in 😋 For Day 10 of #Yogissentials, it’s Warrior’s choice! I’m leading into a Virabhadrasana II/Warrior 2 this Friyay 🙌⚡️❤️
-•-
Whether you choose Warrior 1, 2, 3 (or any variation or modification) the intention behind this fierce warrior, an incarnation of Shiva, are all the same. In Warrior II, we step our back foot 3-1/2 to 4ft apart with the outside edge of the foot parallel to the back of your mat. The front foot is pointing straight forward, and the heel is actually aligned to the arch/middle of your back foot. Now we have our stance, bend your front knee so it is at a 90 degree angle while the back leg is straight. With your torso facing the side of your mat (depending which side your warrior is at), extend your arms out parallel to the ground stretching as if you are trying to reaching the front and the back at the same time, relax your shoulders and face forward to your front hand. Try not to lean forward or backwards too much and keep your shoulders directly aligned to your hips 👌
-•-
We can’t wait to see which strong Warriors speak to you. 1, 2, or 3? (or maybe all 3?) You can even come into an Exalted Warrior from Warrior 2 (swipe to see my Viparita Virabhadrasana)➡️2️⃣

Are you ready to salute the sun? Show us your Virabhadrasana/Warrior Pose!🤺

  • En la postura del guerrero II, ¿Cuál es la expresión o gesto general de tu cuerpo? En la mayoría de la gente veo un gesto sin vida de alcanzar algo hacia delante, muchas veces creo que inconsciente, lo que les deja sin la estabilidad que a mí me evoca la postura, y también sin la sensación de alargamiento que proporcionaría el gesto si alcanzaran con verdadera intención. Imagina que estás en dicha postura, y en lugar de tus dedos, son las palmas de las manos las que apuntan hacia delante y hacia atrás (los dedos quedarían apuntando al cielo) y que quisieras resistir el empuje de algo o alguien que presionará contra tus manos, manteniendo tu posición. ¿Separarias más o menos las piernas? ¿Tu centro de gravedad subiría o descendería? ¿Tu torso quedaría inclinado o más vertical? ¿Qué sensación mental y emocional te da ese cambio en la perspectiva de la postura? 📸: @missyogui

She looks fear in the face; year after year, day after day, yet she never runs. She never hides. And she ALWAYS finds a way to get back up. She's unbreakable, she's a WARRIOR. She's you."

  • Today is Day 4 of #mombrainyoga .. I chose #Warrior2Pose as my standing pose because, I'll be honest, sometimes being a mom of two little kids feels like going into battle every day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's not usually a battle with my kids (though we certainly have our days), but it's a war within me--an inner war, if you will. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I spent years second guessing every decision. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Should I go back to work in an office job or figure out how to stay at home? Should I be upset that the preschool fed my daughter processed snacks full of chemicals and pesticides or let it go? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Am I doing this right? Should I be doing more? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why am I always so exhausted when other moms seem to have so much energy?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I still struggle with this, obviously. But I have come a long way. The biggest ah-ha moment being when I learned how to trust myself and stop worrying so much about how other people do things... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(Wait.. that sounds like a common refrain I hear in yoga class all the time... Coincidence? Nope. It's all yoga.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh, and if you're wondering.. This is definitely an older photo. I decided to spend some time resting and enjoying my family today instead of taking yoga photos. I'm not sorry.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • How do you express yourself?
.
.
This is definitely one I am still working on. Talking about feelings was never really something I learned. Growing up in a military family talking about feelings were  often times avoided and has carried over into my adult life. . .
With the support of lots of people who I am blessed to have love me, I’m trying to be more open. I never want to wonder if the people I care about know just how important they are too me. .
.
This page helps me to connect and share the good and the bad. Thanks for being on the ride! . *any suggestions how you share your feelings? .
Today’s #yogisgetcreative challenge is to flow from Dancer to warrior2. Here’s my take excited to see everyone else’s ❤️

  • ll The Mythology of Viparita Virabhadrasana: Who Was Virabhadra? From Yoga International:

The story of Virabhadra is a classic warrior tale in that it reflects the struggle between truth (atman or “higher self”) and the ego. In this tale, Lord Shiva takes a wife—Sati—but her father, Daksha, does not approve of Shiva's bizarre, renunciate ways. (Shiva spends time in cemeteries and wears a snake around his neck, after all.) To demonstrate his disapproval, Daksha throws a party and does not invite the newlyweds. Sati becomes enraged and goes to the party alone to defend her love of Shiva, but her father cannot surrender his opinion of Shiva; his distaste for their coupling remains.

In retaliation, Sati decides to sever her relationship with her father and her family in general. She even decides to leave her body (which is a yogic way to say “die”). She announces this to her father, leaves the party, goes deep into meditation, and builds an inner fire (agni) that is so strong she eventually spontaneously combusts. 
Grief-stricken, Shiva tears his hair out, and from that hair he manifests Virabhadra to slay Sati's stubborn-minded father. Virabhadra quickly fulfills his purpose; he arrives at the party and decapitates Daksha. But after the deed is done, Shiva feels sorrow and regret. So he absorbs Virabhadra back into his body, goes to the party (that by now is most definitely over), and restores life to Daksha. 
When Daksha's heartbeat returns, his perspective has shifted; he, too, feels regret for his ways. From then on, he calls Shiva “Shiva Shankar,” the kind and benevolent one. In the end, Sati also comes back to life by re-incarnating as Parvati (another goddess and wife of Shiva). “all that practice for times like this when being a warrior is a way a life 🙏🏼❤️ #newtown #newlife #virabhadrasana2 #warrior2pose #yogachallenge #newyear#yogafamily #yoga #yogimama #yogachallenge #PathsOfMotherhood #yogagirls #yogajourney #yogi #sexyyoga #yoga #yogafit  #yogabody #startyoga #yoganewbie #yogachallenge #hattayoga #beagoddess  #consciousparenting #yogafamilylifestyle #yogateacher #yogateacher #practiceyoga #yogateachertraining #youniversalschoolyoga

  • Flying Pigeon or Eka Pada Galavasana: fourth practice at this very challenging yoga balance. Does really require skill strength and flexibility. My cardio was pumping during these short holds. Arguably it may be most like a bird posture with the leg crossed over the other. It’s wonderful to practice this and emulate the birds 🦢 whose postures heal humans. I’m establishing good  technique with this and did today again. I believe next time I’ll be little more angled upright having understood something towards the end of the practice. Very challenging Vinyasa practice actually and great for opening the hips. Figure four is not an easy posture but am now finding my way into with relative ease. I can really feel the difference in my body today. Learning about flexibility and strength has been very enlightening for me, not least of which is the health benefits that I’m enjoying on a daily basis. Again with this balance perhaps more than others, is the feeling when entering the balance of vulnerability that you may tip over. Working through fears that yes this can be done not recklessly but with skill and thought. It’s taken a lot of daily tough Vinyasa and Yin yoga to be able to get into figure four with the leg crossed over the other, let alone lift the feet off of the ground phew 😅. I love it it’s awesome. Whilst I’m having these amazing experiences, yesterday in town again I was targeted by the establishment bad nature’s groups who have it in their hearts to upset my life. I’ve never seen such a display of wickedness. It’s really shameful being British. The lies they make about their global activities as well as at home. Their lying about the Persian Gulf also to get America to fight a false 👺🦹‍♂️war. I’m grateful for Yoga and those that share it and for the amazing artists who grace the world 🕊❤️. #flyingcrowpose #flyingpigeonpose #flyingpigeon #pigeonpose #figure4pose #figure4posewithatwist #hipopenerstretch #yogaflex #yogaflexible #armbalances #yogabalance #warrior3 #warrior2pose #vegan #art #chiropractic #yogaforhealth

  • Someday somehow somewhere 
And timing all correct 
We each one who feel lost 
Will find ourselves 
And if as Warriors
It will be the wonderful moment 
And if as Cowards 
It may look the bitterest moment 
But an opportunity to know 
The true self .

  • Bound Lizard or Baddha Utthan Pristhasana: phew 😅 whilst all Vinyasa is not easy, it’s what you put into it that matters. Working very hard at continuity of breath Ujjayi. Was pleased with the intention I set in practicing today. This posture I let go surrendered and sunk deeper into the hip stretch: it felt deep and amazing 😉. Wider stance, and felt the inner thigh muscles stretch in places for the first time. This left side is the first time where I have been able to hold for the duration yayy 😁🔥 my left hip is getting stronger. Also stretching out my back all the way down the side of the spine, arms shoulders and flexors, quads. Awesome posture and made progress today. Went into Hurdlers Pose from BL, just for fun. Got it both sides today and so added to the energetic effect of the practice. Sure felt It during and after the practice. It’s a humble bowing posture and this definitely has benefits, many of them. In a undisciplined world, be disciplined. Ridding my system and body of ego 😈and malingering evil 🦹‍♂️👺🧙🏼‍♀️that tried to stop me from practicing today. Yes ego did right at the start of my practice, but stomped on it. Certainly in Britain the right path will get you targeted by those who have sold their souls to the empire. Second video and opening flow. Twisting out toxins that no longer serve the body requires active cleansing of the body mind and spirit. It compresses the Joints and when released flushes through lymphatic fluid and blood clearing out old for new. Twisting in crescent Pose felt great with a deeper stretch in my hips. It’s all feeling progressed and good. Thank guys for support, it means a lot. 🔥😊🙏. #boundlizardpose #boundlizard #hurdlerspose🙌 #koundinyasana #twistedcrescent #warrior2pose #crescentpose #extendedsideangle #warrior3 #yogastrength #yogatwists #veganrecipe #chiropractic #healthyeating #artistsoninstagram #koundinyasana2

One morning on the balcony while the pool guy cleaned the pool and this day, in the morning on the beach. I even practiced sun salutations in public! yoga progress!

  • My mom says this is a really nice warrior II pose, but more important than that is I HAVE ABS! LOOK AT MY ABS! I’m going to stand like this at all times from now on.
