🔥Fire starts in my heart when I reach that place. Home again where I belong 🔥

I decided to jump on the #soulsistersmovement bandwagon! As an aerialist I couldn’t resist something as exciting as a #yoflow or #yogance

Hi! I'm a college freshman and I used to go to the gym but now I cant do that. I wana start doing yoga since I am drowning in school work and stress. But I have no idea where to and how to start. I have danced ballet previously and I heard this could help me. But I honestly have no idea. Should I do yoga from youtube videos? But I dont know if I can trust these.. Please help! Thank you! :)

Yoga kept me so grounded throughout my school year last year! 

I think yoga is perfect if you used to like dance and you need balance and a time to de-stress. I actually started doing yoga from youtube videos. I liked Yogea Artflow on youtube. I’ve also heard good things about Tara Stiles and Yoga by Adriene but have never done those myself.

You can trust those videos. But you might find (like I did) that those videos aren’t enough. A class ambiance is really crucial. Especially being with your teacher so they can correct your form and such. In my town we have limitless options of free yoga. There’s yoga in the park, donations based classes, community classes, etc.

Do some research in your town and hopefully you’ll find something similar. But if you don’t, that’s okay too. These days with technology you can find a lot of great information and guidance!

Be Here Now

Be here now, no other place to be

Or just sit there dreaming of how life would be
If we were somewhere better
Somewhere far away from all all worries
Well, here we are

You are the love of my life

Be here now, no other place to be
All the doubts that linger, just set them free
And let good things happen
And let the future come into each moment
Like a rising sun

You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
Yeah, you know you are

Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again

And it’s all new today
All we have to say
Is be here now

Be here now, no other place to be
This whole world keeps changing, come change with me
Everything that’s happened, all that’s yet to come
Is here inside this moment, it’s the only one

You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
Yeah, you know you are

Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again

It’s all new today
All we have to say
Is be here now

10 Yoga Poses that will Compliment any Runner
If you run, you MUST compliment your running with stretching before and after so your muscles don’t tighten up. 
Here, I’ve put together some easy poses anyone can do after a run. Do them in order after your run. Go at your own pace, be kind to yourself and do what feels good. Don’t get discouraged if you’re not as flexible as you wish…you’ll get more flexible if you keep going. 
You’ll see progress quick if you stick to it. I promise!
1. Downward facing dog-
Stretches basically everything. Hips, hamstrings, shoulders, back, achilles, calves, etc. Also, it can be very cooling after running and a good moment to just relax and slow down.
2. Lizard Lunge-
A great opening in the hips and hamstrings which I always find needed after running. You can even take the hand closest to the instep of the foot and place it on your knee to gently push the knee out to the side. Do on both legs, naturally.
3. Horse Squat-
A good twist and hip opening. The help of gravity makes this stretch extra yummy! Push your knees apart with your hands and let it feel good!
4. Malasana Squat-
After horse squat, take your hips down towards the ground. This is AMAZING on the low back which can sometimes feel jarred after running. Plus another great opening in the hips.
5. Wide Legged Forward Fold-
I love this pose to stretch everything and to improve my posture by opening in the heart space. Make sure you lift at your inner arches here slightly to avoid dumping in your feet and hurting your knees. 
6. Tip Toe Pose-
I encourage all of my students and friends and family and anyone to do this. If you have never done this, it may feel pretty intense at first and you may not be able to sit in it for long. But do it everyday. Trust me, you will thank your healthy feet. Especially after having your feetsies in shoes all day, this is a must.
7. Top of the Foot Stretch-
To counter the last stretch, this one feels great and is crucial for balancing out your feet. It feels so good from the top of the shin down. Again, if you never stretch your feet, you may notice your arches are pretty tight. Either way, do it everyday.
8. Bhekasana/Frog Pose-
After working your quads on that run, this is the best thing you could do for them. It stretches the entire thigh. Don’t leave this one out. It’s way too good.
9. Pyramid Pose with elevated toes-
You could use the street curb for this one. Crazy good hamstring and achilles stretch. This wall was convenient for me to rest my forehead on.
10. IT Band Stretch-
Right after pyramid pose, take this twisty position to stretch out the IT band. You won’t regret it.

Do these stretches after runs and get back to me on how you feel in a few weeks. I can assure you it will improve your running, flexibility and power. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. 
Namaste!

If you run, you MUST compliment your running with stretching before and after so your muscles don’t tighten up. 
Here, I’ve put together some easy poses anyone can do after a run. Do them in order after your run. Go at your own pace, be kind to yourself and do what feels good. Don’t get discouraged if you’re not as flexible as you wish…you’ll get more flexible if you keep going. 
You’ll see progress quick if you stick to it. I promise!
1. Downward facing dog-
Stretches basically everything. Hips, hamstrings, shoulders, back, achilles, calves, etc. Also, it can be very cooling after running and a good moment to just relax and slow down.
2. Lizard Lunge-
A great opening in the hips and hamstrings which I always find needed after running. You can even take the hand closest to the instep of the foot and place it on your knee to gently push the knee out to the side. Do on both legs, naturally.
3. Horse Squat-
A good twist and hip opening. The help of gravity makes this stretch extra yummy! Push your knees apart with your hands and let it feel good!
4. Malasana Squat-
After horse squat, take your hips down towards the ground. This is AMAZING on the low back which can sometimes feel jarred after running. Plus another great opening in the hips.
5. Wide Legged Forward Fold-
I love this pose to stretch everything and to improve my posture by opening in the heart space. Make sure you lift at your inner arches here slightly to avoid dumping in your feet and hurting your knees. 
6. Tip Toe Pose-
I encourage all of my students and friends and family and anyone to do this. If you have never done this, it may feel pretty intense at first and you may not be able to sit in it for long. But do it everyday. Trust me, you will thank your healthy feet. Especially after having your feetsies in shoes all day, this is a must.
7. Top of the Foot Stretch-
To counter the last stretch, this one feels great and is crucial for balancing out your feet. It feels so good from the top of the shin down. Again, if you never stretch your feet, you may notice your arches are pretty tight. Either way, do it everyday.
8. Bhekasana/Frog Pose-
After working your quads on that run, this is the best thing you could do for them. It stretches the entire thigh. Don’t leave this one out. It’s way too good.
9. Pyramid Pose with elevated toes-
You could use the street curb for this one. Crazy good hamstring and achilles stretch. This wall was convenient for me to rest my forehead on.
10. IT Band Stretch-
Right after pyramid pose, take this twisty position to stretch out the IT band. You won’t regret it.

Do these stretches after runs and get back to me on how you feel in a few weeks. I can assure you it will improve your running, flexibility and power. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. 
Namaste!

Way too many times people will say “I’m not flexible enough for yoga” or the theory that if you haven’t kept a stretch up since you were little (lotus, leg behind the head, splits) then you probably won’t ever be able to do it again now that you’re older. 

These photos are only a few weeks apart and look at the difference. #theprogressisreal 

It’s our minds that need to be a bit more flexible when it comes to being flexible. 
Stay open minded and open hearted #takingovertheworldwithyoga
