Day 30 #BeStrongin2015 is Vrschikasana, Scorpion Handstand.  The purpose of this pose is to create space between the joints of the spine while allowing gravity to deepen your backbend. Don’t try to push your feet towards your head because that will compress the joints. Instead reach your chest forward while elongating the front body and engaging the back muscles. Use your pelvic floor to keep the lower back lifted and safe. Go as far as you can and never force. Check my YouTube channel for step-by-step tutorials for all levels. Check @beachyogagirl for an easier option. Outfit by @aloyoga Make sure to check their account. Video by @ifilmyoga Get my @codyapp Be Strong bundle with @beachyogagirl 's Core Strength on sale now!

Do what makes you smile every day. Cherish every second you spend in love. Share your love, don't hold any part of your heart back. Live your life like it counts because it does, don't let it just pass you by. Jump in with a childlike faith and an indomitable spirit and you will move mountains and light up the sky. #kinoyoga #practiceandalliscoming #onebreathatatime Photo: @ifilmyoga Wearing: @aloyoga

Love this! My head says yes, but my booty said outright, no. :/
Joining the @jeromejarre #UglySelfieChallenge bandwagon. Love his message of limitless positivity, love his story, love him! What matters is what's on the inside. And what better expression than being caught in the middle of Devarajurs Road traffic in Mysore?? I tag @ifilmyoga @ajaytokas @timfeldmannyoga @beachyogagirl to join the train 😜

Day 29 #BeStrongin2015 is Addho Mukha Vrksasana, Straight Handstand. If there is one standard in handstand practice this is it. For anyone interested in building strength and stability finding the vertical line in handstand is an important practice to integrate into your daily discipline. Don’t just jump up and try to survive, build the connection into healthy technique. Press up with the shoulders to elevate the scapulas, engage the lower abs, tuck the tailbone, draw the thighs towards eachother and point your toes. Balance with your fingertips and hands instead of dumping down into the shoulders. Check my YouTube channel for step-by-step tutorials for all levels. Check @beachyogagirl for an easier option.

Yoga ignites the inner fire of purification which shines as the lamp of knowledge, revealing the truth in its simplicity. Slowly, methodically yoga will illuminate all the shadows until nothing but the brilliance of the inner light remains. #practiceandalliscoming #onebreathatatime Wearing: @aloyoga

Sunset in Mysore from up high 😊 What is about the golden glow of sunset that is always so timeless? The sky in a haze that glimmers just enough to speak of ancient past, the eternal present and future promise. Oh yes, I can feel myself slipping into the reflective, introspective state of being a student after just two days of practice. #practiceandalliscoming #onebreathatatime

Day 28 #BeStrongin2015 is Eka Pada Bakasana, One Footed Crane Posture. I think this is the hardest of all the arm balances in the Third Series of Ashtanga Yoga. I could only find balance and lift up for many years by pointing my Bakasana foot towards the ground and using the friction of my shin to prop my body up. But lately I’ve been working on keeping the Bakasana foot closer to my pelvis and lifted up higher. It requires so much more work with the core. If you’re working on this posture a great first step is to simply lift one knee a little off of one arm in Bakasana while keeping the core engaged.

On the program for me today: Primary Series. So many people come to Mysore with the expectation to do advanced poses, but that isn't what the journey here is about. Mysore is about surrendering to the practice and building a relationship with yourself, the practice and your teacher. Come with no expectation and you will be in the best possible space. Every new student starts off with at least one week (sometimes even one full month) of primary series. And returning students like me always start off with a few days of Primary Series on each trip. The experience here is beyond what words can describe, there is a reverence and devotion that is cultivated by surrendering to a power bigger and grander than yourself each time you get on your mat. #practiceandalliscoming #onebreathatatime

The body has its own time and logic. You can't rush it and if you try it will only take longer. The more you practice yoga the more you understand that it is a listening practicing and a space of surrender. The body is God's gift and it would be hubris to think that we can force it to bend to the ego's will. Knock on the door your body's limits gently, with kindness and compassion, ask and wait patiently to see what has been given. If the door remains locked don't kick it down or yell at it, accept it in the clear space of equanimity and knock again another day. If you unlock a new door to a hidden realm of inner awakening you will know you didn't do it, but you received it #practiceandalliscoming #onebreathatatime Wearing: @aloyoga

I'll get over the gratuitous selfie fest soon, but how could I resist this sea of yellow flowers at the Devaraja Market in Mysore? Who remembers when I only posted flower pictures a little over a year ago? I can't help it I love flowers. Did you know that my name means little flower in Japanese and that my grandfather is Japanese? #kinoyoga #flowers

Day 27 #BeStrongin2015 is Ardha Vrksasana, Half Handstand/Handstnad Tuck. When I first started learning handstand technique this is the first place that I found the stability and balance for a straight handstand. Since the tuck position ensures that you engage your core and press up with the shoulders, it also ensures that you avoid using the spinal arch to compensate for lack of strength. Try it against the wall if it seems impossible for now. Be patient, it took me years of practice.  All that matters is that you get stronger every day.

This was beautiful @kinoyoga
One of the most important parts about the yoga path is having friends that support your journey. Going on a yoga retreat or making the trip to join an intensive course of study opens your heart to the new soul connections of spiritual friends. Even though some yoga friends may be long distance the soul connection makes them always close at heart and you can reach out to them in times of need. In really simple terms you need someone to talk to when you start making the changes that follow the yoga path and everyone else thinks you're crazy. I can't remember how many times I've had someone ask me why we have to put our leg behind the head anyway, it's perfectly happy where it is, or why does Ashtanga need to be so disciplined and can't we just have fun and do what we want instead of surrendering to a teacher, or why do you have to practice so early in India (believe me it's not my preference and I'm writing this in a sleepy haze after waking up at 3:45 am Mysore time for my first day of practice at the shala!). Doubt is an insidious shadow that surreptitiously creeps up on you. You need your yoga friends to build up your faith until it's the kind of unshakable faith born from direct experience of the highest truth. #practiceandalliscoming #onebreathatatime Photo by @alesigismondi

Only by surrendering yourself fully can you be lead to experiences which are beyond your control. As humans we have many short comings, but one of the hardest to deal with is our fear of losing control. This is the ego that latches on and thinks it needs to be in the driver's seat in order to accomplish things. But if you succeed from that space it will only build your pride and keep you further away from the truth. So life will not let you succeed until you surrender. The great paradox of ego is that as long as it rules you, it won't get what it wants but as soon as you let go and surrender you immediately get access to a wealth of spirit that the ego cannot even fathom. Let go of your ego's plan and follow God's plan. But don't trust me on blind faith, test it out in small doses and see what works better, your ego's will or God's will. I have a feeling I know what the answer will be, but try it out and tell me how it goes 😊 #practiceandalliscoming #onebreathatatime Wearing: @aloyoga

Hello Mysore. Here is the view from my chariot a.k.a rickshaw as I take care of all the arrival details, saying hello to my teacher Sharath, registering for practice at the shala (with a reasonable 6 am start time), hooking up local internet, apartment hunting, fruit shopping, chai and coconut drinking. I already feel the blessings of being a student 🙏

Day 26 #BeStrongin2015 is Galavasana, the pose dedicated to the sage Galava who completed a nearly impossible task in honor of his teacher. You may feel like you embark on a similarly impossible journey if you attempt this challenging arm balance. It requires flexibility in the hips, steady shoulders and a strong a core. Then add in trying it from headstand for the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method and it will be a true test of endurance. It took me years to really feel like I had any lift up or steadiness in the posture and I can still get stronger. Check my YouTube channel for step-by-step tutorials for all levels.

@mberrios10 tomorrow morning
Just arrived to Mysore. I've stopped counting the number of trips I've made to study Ashtanga Yoga here. This city is like my yoga home, a place of paradoxes that speaks familiarity to me, filled with nostalgia and urban development, chai and coconuts, yoga and introspection, friends and days at the pool, intensive practice and sutra study, memories and presence. This photo was taken last year by Tom Rosenthal. What's in store for this year? We will have to see 😊 #practiceandalliscoming #onebreathatatime

Day 25 #BeStrongin2015 is Grasshopper. This fun arm balance is a great hip opener to prepare for the integrated strength for leg behind the head arm balances. Use the external rotation of your hip joint to situate your foot as close to the armpit as possible. Then actively press the foot down into the upper arm while pivoting just forward enough in the shoulders to transfer your weight into arms. Track the elbows in line with the shoulders and maintain a firm connection into your shoulder girdle. Check my YouTube channel for step-by-step tutorials for all levels.

@amayans your favorite yoga chick is back
Look back at all the best moments in your life and you'll see that they are the result of surrender more than your will. You can work and work for something but it is always only a part of the equation. Never give up or stop working, but balance your effort with relaxation, surrender and the open heart that can receive the fruits of your labor. If you're too caught up in the struggle of your practice or of your life then there is no space to let the spontaneous flow of love and light in. Surrender your will into God's will, relax, let go, and receive the gifts of peace, joy and happiness. #practiceandalliscoming #onebreathatatime
