WHEEL POSE TUTORIAL FOR BEGINNERS!!! 🌸 . Also known as upward bow, this is quite an intense posture as it requires having not only a flexible spine but also flexible shoulders, wrists and quads in addition to overall body strength! . Remember that it takes time to gain flexibility and daily practice is key ⭐️ . 🤸🏽♂️You might feel like these “fancy poses” on instagram are inacessible to you or that it will take an eternity to get there but beleive me that’s how everyone feels at the beginning (and even later). Enjoy the journey, find sequences you truely like and then you will notice that you won’t feel “stuck” because it’s not about getting the perfect pose ASAP but rather just enjoying the road that leads you there! (I hope that made sense 🤨) . ☀️About the MODIFIED WHEEL pose in the last slide: If you are a complete beginner don’t try to get into a full wheel pose just yet. Bend your elbows as I demonstrated in the last video and lift yourself just a bit to stand on the crown of your head. This will help you get used to the full pose. . However if it doesn’t feel good, don’t worry. Keep on stretching your muscles consistently and enjoy your practice💕🙏🏼 . . #wheelpose#yogatutorial#backbends
A sattvic student knows there is no magic formula for liberation . The experience comes through discipline. Go to a teacher to experience the teachings, not to blindly follow but to ask questions and to work for ones own salvation . As evolution takes place the teachers words and guidance is understood - GROWTH IS IN THE STUDENTS OWN HANDS . . Pic from our epic morning meditation spot #bliss#sivananda#india#kerela . Teachings from my Sivananda teacher training in India 🇮🇳 which I did back in 2014... #whataplace#ttc#sivananda

Just want to give a shout-out to our friends @carpediemtea - we recently partnered with them to create custom Carpe Diem yoga mats and we LOVE how they turned out! Nothing better than a beautiful yoga practice on a JadeYoga mat followed with a delicious and refreshing kombucha from Carpe Diem! 💚
We had the opportunity to host our ambassador day in the most dreamy and special location - in a retired traditional church! Thanks to @namastayfit.fr for an incredible morning vinyasa to start off our day and thank you to our ambassadors for participating in everything this day had to offer! 🌸 We are so grateful for our ambassadors as they are an important part of the creation process for new products. Their feedback and advice as they test the new collection is a crucial step in the co-creation and ensures our products are functional and made by the yogi and for the yogi.
