😍"Yogaya İlk Görüşte Aşık Oldum" 😍
Yogayla nasıl tanıştım? Böyle bir sayfa oluşturmayı neden istedim? Yoganın benim hayatındaki yeri nedir? Aslında tüm bu soruların cevabı tek kelimeden oluşuyor: skolyoz! Birkaç yıl önce skolyozum olduğunu öğrendim, doktorum ameliyata gerek olmadığını söyledi. Kabul ediyorum çok kendini belli eden ileri dereceli bir durumda değilim. Ama ilk öğrendiğimde o kadar üzülmüştüm ki... Ne olduğunu da bilmiyordum; çünkü o zamana kadar bu kelimeyi duymamıştım bile. Üniversiteye başladıktan sonra ne yapabilirim diye araştırmaya başladım. Kitaplara, sosyal medya hesaplarına, internette yazılanlara tek tek baktım. Sonunda karşıma YOGA çıktı. Ne kaybederim ki dedim kendime ve bir sürü yoga videosuna ulaştım. Çok hızlı oldu her şey, birden bire kendimi yoga yaparken buldum. İlk denemeye başladığımda cok yoruluyordum ama o yorgunluktan sonra kendimi o kadar iyi hissettim ki... Başta skolyozumun düzelmesi için başladım; artık sadece istediğim için yapıyorum. Daha henüz çok başındayim, handstand gibi duruşlar yapamıyorum. Belki eğitim almadan da yapmam çok zor ama insan isterse her şey mümkündür. Ben istiyorum ve bunu başarıp kendi imkanımı yarattığımda da elbette eğitim alacağım. O gün hayatımda daha çok şey değişecek inanıyorum 🙏
Day 6 ： Hip Opener ( skandasana) 🤸🏿♂️❤️
AMAZING NEW CHALLENGE IS ARROUND THE CORNER!
You! Hey you! Yes you who is reading this!
How many times while practicing Yoga you thought: "Uh, that is far from perfect pose. My pose is not good enough. I will never be like that." and similar thoughts?
We think the answer is: Too many times!
Well, there isn't One Perfect Pose, but hundreds of them. Why? Because we are all different. Our bodies, minds are different. And so is our practice. And that is perfectly okay. We are all in our lane and going forward by our own speed. And we shouldn't look on others and compare ourselves with others.
We know that is hard, but lets try to focus only on ourselves and on our own personal and perfect practice and poses.
JOIN US from 11-17th of August in fresh, new #PerfectAsItIsasana challenge where we will all show our own perfect pose (asana) and we will all be proud of it. Because it is ours.
BE SURE NOT TO MISS IT!

I swear that a little early morning yoga gives you super powers for the rest of the day. And when I say little I mean 15 minutes here and there. That’s generally all I have time for right now, but it all adds up to help the mind and body to do what it needs to do for the rest of the day #everylittlehelps

Day 2 of #tryyogatoday2018 yoga challenge - Chair pose or Utkatasana.
This posture today is also a balancing and strengthening pose - especially of the gluteals muscles (aka bottom muscles) and thighs. Some of you may remember I won a fitness competition a while back involving squats and I’m sure it was down to practising the chair pose! 😆😆
Feel free to snap anywhere you are today and try out any of the variations (swipe left for inspo)! Remember you don’t need to sit too low if you are not used to this pose. Feet can be slightly apart and parallel, arms ideally straight but don’t worry if not. In my beginners version, I’m holding a block to help the arms in alignment. The more advance versions can be on toes and balls of feet, adding a twist or extra bonus for one leg balanced chair pose! 😉
TIPS- think about engaging the thigh muscles by internal rotation of the femur (rolling in) to help keep your legs strong. Glance down if you can still see your toes, this is a good sign you aren’t putting too much pressure on your knees.
Head over to see the other hosts variations, videos, tips and advice on alignment and benefits of the postures!
Please make sure you tag us in your photos if you are joining in so we can easily see your posts and have a wonderful day 😘❤️❤️❤️
Day 4️⃣ of #RomanticRemedy and we have any pose with prayer hands. I chose to do this toe stand pose as I haven’t done it in a while and I’ve always found it quite hard to find balance. I was pleasantly surprised that I could hold this for more than a second because when I did this last year I was falling all over the place. I believe that in order to become successful at what we do, we need the following 5 ingredients: faith, patience, dedication, love and practice. Do you agree/disagree? If so, which one do you think I’m missing? 🌹You can still join us for 7 days of heart opening, self loving asanas that will remind us of our beauty, force us to explore our creativity and feel each moment.

🦋 #BaddhaKonasana ↔️ #BoundAnglePose or #CobblerPose or #ButterflyPose on 👉@yogaalignment with @janiceliou
For anyone looking to stretch their hips, adductors, and working on their middle splits give this self-assist a try! The best part? You can pretty much do this anywhere! The idea is to keep your low back long (rather than rounded) go only as far until you start to round your low back.
- Start sitting with your butt against the wall, soles of your feet together (close to your pelvis) with butterflied knees
- Use cushions or blocks under your knees to help support the knees.
- Take your hands to the wall or any surface behind you, keep your low back long and slowly press yourself down to feel the stretch
- Actively press your knees down towards the floor with the strength of your inner thighs (much safer to self activate than apply external force)
- Think: chest to arches of feet rather than head to feet.
Hope this helps! Happy stretching everyone!

HOW TO STAY Dedicated:
When it comes to staying dedicated to anything you have to have a purpose. Mentally, your dedication stops when you stop having a reason to keep going. When you have a “true” purpose, staying motivated and remembering why you started will be the least of your worries. For example, most people have losing weight or some sort of relation to this at the start of the new year. A month or 2 later, they are not working out anymore. The reason why they fall off is because they never had a valid purpose for losing weight. Most people will say I want to look good in my clothes for “Spring Break” and look good naked “to catch the attention of someone else” (which is momentarily). This type of short term goal is not built on a foundation for a life time change. A short term mindset will produce short term goals and you will run into the same problem year after year. You rarely hear people say they want to lose weight in relation to a life style change or self-improvement and actually mean it. When you really want to self-improve your purpose for losing weight becomes much more valid.
As it relates to me personally staying dedicated to my yoga practice, it has nothing to do with the progress pictures. Progress pictures are not even for me, they serve a purpose for others. Maybe the pictures reel people in to start practicing, maybe it motivates people to stay on their journey, maybe it triggers something to make someone start a lifestyle change, maybe it has nothing to do with fitness or yoga, maybe it simply gets someone to get up off the couch and apply themselves? The reason I started practicing yoga was to rehab a completely torn Achilles Tendon injury (That’s how I got started). What keeps me dedicated is I have a purpose to keep practicing and the change it has given me in my life, for the good. Here are some of the reasons I choose to keep practicing: practicing keeps me grounded and centered, my blood pressure leveled, a peace of mind, my immune system intact (my immune system has been at its best since practicing), previous chronic back pain in line, positive way of life with better quality food options....read more..
