“I don't know if I continue, even today, always liking myself. But what I learned to do many years ago was to forgive myself. It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes- it is inevitable. But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, 'Well, if I'd known better I'd have done better,' that's all. So you say to people who you think you may have injured, 'I'm sorry,' and then you say to yourself, 'I'm sorry.' If we all hold on to the mistake, we can't see our own glory in the mirror because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror; we can't see what we're capable of being. You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end the real forgiveness is in one's own self. The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don’t have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as hell we should never teach.” MAYA ANGELOU • Growth. Correcting myself before I correct another. 🦋
Open up all the clogged emotions that is stuck deep rooted. There is a correlation between particular emotions and certain areas of the body:- 👉Fear is centered in the kidneys - When we are afraid, our adrenal glands activate readying to run away or fight that which confronts us. 👉Anger in the liver - When our liver becomes damaged, we may subject our loved ones to bouts of extreme rage (as most families of alcoholics are only too aware) 👉Worry in the stomach - When we fret, the rate of ulcers rises. 👉Fright in the heart - When we are frightened, suddenly our heart skips a beat (or we suffer a heart attack and become ‘frightened to death!’) . 👉Grief in the lungs - When we grieve, our lungs go into spasm (called crying); Fortunately, we are also beneficiaries of positive emotions as well. Home for beauty is in the lungs Joy in the heart, Creativity in the stomach, Kindness in the liver, Wisdom in the kidneys. . #prasaritapadottanasana#yoga#instayoga#yogalife#yogisofinstagram#yogalover#yogamum#yogagoals#yogavibes#yogafeature#yogainspirations#yogaposes#igyogacommunity#igyoga#yogaflow#yogaindia#yoga4growth#heenabhimaniwellness

Did you know household plastics can end up in our seas – harming our dolphins, turtles and other wildlife too? Only 9% of the plastic ever made has been recycled, with most plastic still ending up in landfills or in the natural environment. Day 2 of #earthboundyogis is reducing plastic waste. 🌎 . When it comes to hygiene and beauty products, plastic packaging is often hard to avoid. Instead of using items in plastic packing: bottles, tubs, tubes and pots, opt for bars of soap and shampoo instead. Buying in bulk and being conscious that what you’re purchasing is a recyclable plastic is definitely the way to go if you can’t avoid it. It’s a great way to ease into reducing your plastic consumption. Not only does it cut the total amount of plastic you consume, it also reduces the carbon footprint of shipping the products. . When it comes to the kitchen you can refill your washing up liquids, laundry liquids and all-purpose cleaners at Ecover refill stations across the UK. Refill stations are becoming more widespread so it shouldn’t be too hard to find one near you. Glass jars make for great food storage in the fridge, as you can see at a glance what’s inside the jar – helping you reduce food waste at the same time. . . As plastic items break or run out I’ve been trying to replace them with plastic-free alternatives. Ceramic, glass or metal bowls instead of plastic ones. Wooden or metal utensils instead of plastic ones. Metal straws instead of plastic straws, and so on... No doubt there will be some plastic items I will have for life. But I don’t think it’s environmentally responsible to replace perfectly functioning items just because they happen to be made of plastic. Start small – replace things as they run out and soon all those small plastic-free changes will add up. 🌎 . . 🌎 Hosts:🌍 @stelasulzdorf @amy.yogini @charlottesyoga_ @limberginger @mediterranean_yogi . . 🌎 Sponsors: 🌍 @myinnerfire @ajnawellbeing @Wamaunderwear .
It's the last day of #blissfulasanas and shocker, my choice is compass pose 🤙🏼I think something I've had to learn as a serial student is to trust my internal compass (🤦🏽♀️🙄). I may not have always made the perfect choices about school and jobs and career, but I chose things that were broad, that gave me flexibility, work life balance, and space to grow and change my mind. I've made some choices that I wouldn't go back and make again. I've had jobs that I hated and I've been miserable in school at times. But I'm trusting that I'm on the right path and that someday, I'll look back at this whole lineup and realize, Oh So this is what was in the making ✨ . . Pose list: 1. calm your mind / meditation pose 🌱 2. count your blessings / mountain pose 🌱 3. embrace change / child’s pose🌱 4. believe in yourself / inversion🌱 5. connect with nature / tree pose🌱 6. happiness comes from within / wheel🌱 7. remember how strong you are / crow🌱 8. remind people how awesome they are / hero pose🌱 9. realize there are no wrong decisions / yogis choice🌱 .

Our My Secret Place feature focuses on a special location for one of our readers, as they share an amazing photo and tell us why the location is important to them. This month, Leo Oppenheim (@flowfitness1983) told us about Shutlingsloe Peak in Macclesfield, and how he and photographer Ross Heale-Whittle (@racerman) got this incredible shot. #omyogamagazine
Twosome Tuesday! Doing yoga with friends is useful, as they can hold you steady while you work on practicing your inversion. @macghilleseatheanaich is holding my ankles again, but for my benefit this time 😉
This variation of scorpion is not in my practice. I saw it a few times in my feed & decided to give it a try. It felt different from the classic scorpion (because CG is different), & as I attempted to lower my legs more, close to the end of the video, I almost fell off. Bending my legs is my auto reflex whenever I lose my balance in pincha regardless what shapes I’m in, though it might appear that I was transitioning to classic scorpion 😆 But I wasn’t, I was preparing to fall into forearm wheel & somehow the fall didn’t happen 😂
