Hi yogis! Inversions for Everyone Workshop w/ Maria tomorrow - Saturday
April 21st 2:00-4:00pm @ Yogasphere, Newtown. As we practice inversions, you will learn to trust yourself, let go of fear, & find a new sense of confidence, strength, power & presence! We all could use a little more of that!!! 😉💪💪💪
Reflecting upon the incredible few days we spent ‘working hard’ in paradise with this amazing group. I’m so grateful for the beautiful souls we’ve met during our yoga journey. Though we all come from different professional backgrounds and experiences, we share the bound of continuously challenging ourselves beyond self-perceived boundaries to test the limits of what our minds and bodies are capable of achieving. Thank you @meliniseri and @handstand_with_virgile for bringing us all together! 🙏 #yogaretreat

A little bit of #pinchaplay at 1 AM anybody? 😅
I practice yoga as part of my night routine and the other night, I did a 45 min deep stretch practice and it felt SO good ❤ It somehow gave me energy and I wanted to check in with my #forearmstand 🙃 It helped that it was so late because I controlled my hops better so I wouldn't disturb the neighbours living under me.
If you remember from my last post about forearm stand, you know that I said I would work on my weaker side more often (right leg) which is what I did that night. So the first vid is pretty much a few snippets of me trying to figure things out on the right leg, trying to adjust myself and just getting it used to going up like a normal non epileptic leg 😂
The other vid is my stronger leg and a miracle happened! 😍 I knew with that leg what tends to happen is that I find the wall much easier and hit it brusquely. So I moved further back, just enough so I still feel like I can touch it somewhat if I needed it. I got a mini hold in L (I think) and a 3 second hold in an almost pincha!! But the real shocker is that my body realized what was happening for the first time. The other times it was just trying to get up. But I felt like now my body parts "get it", like they understand better what to do if that makes sense. That or having lost 10 lbs just makes it easier for them to react 😂 #friyay#upsidedown#inversionpractice#pinchamayurasana
Yoga.... tomorrow at 8:15am @millermartialarts .. this all levels class is just $10 bucks, we will focus on opening the hips and shoulders. Come and practice then stay and roll at 10am. If you’re looking to better your BJJ practice then add YOGA!
Started writing and shit got deep.
Five years ago I was busy preparing for the CrossFit Canada East Regional. It was by far the most physically, mentally and emotionally demanding test I have ever undergone.
It was the culmination of four years of blood, sweat and tears. Everyday, a part of me wanting to quit. Not believing. Naysaying. And everyday the opposite part of me pushing me to try. Forcing me to work. Striving to believe. Every damn day, the same struggle for four years.
It was not a fun time in my life. It was a battle everyday. It was going head to head with my demons everyday. It was emotional turmoil. It was physical, emotional and mental abuse wrapped up in a moment that is applauded and worshipped by everyone from the outside.
When it was over, I thought, that was it? Four years for that? The high of the achievement did not outweigh the pain of the journey.
I learned the hard way the importance of enjoying the process. And even in that moment I didn't totally understand it. It actually took another five years of inner work to truly understand how to enjoy the process. Today I understand. Nine years later I understand.
Proud of myself for that insight moreso than I ever could be for an achievement. 🙏
I’ve finally got some super ripe bananas so that means its time for me to make some more of @rachlmansfield Vegan Banana Bread...with chocolate chunks of course 🍌🍫 BEST. BANANA. BREAD. EVER. I’m more excited than you would believe.
I feel like I want to put more effort into this account and what I share with you. I’m not really sure what you guys are interested in me sharing and if you want to know a bit more about what I’m doing with my days? Or sharing some random thoughts? This account was originally meant to be “all about my life” but I guess it’s sort of more just some of this and that, without a real theme to it. I’d love some feedback so I can give this account some direction 💁🏼♀️
