Taking my practice outside today which is where I begun my yoga journey a year ago. When getting out of bed felt a challenge , I would take my mat outside in the morning, listen to the birds, feeling myself breathe again. I feel proud of myself in how far my practice has gone since I first began and look forward to where it will take me 🙏🏻🌱
Today's yoga pose is the BALANCING BOUND ANGLE, brought to you by @yoga_basics
1. From a seated position bring the bottoms of the feet together in towards the hips with the knees bent out to the sides.
2. Interlace the fingers around the toes, use the arms to drop the shoulders down and back and to press the chest forward.
3. Inhale and slowly lean back to lift the feet and inch or two off of the floor.
4. Slowly lift the feet up to the level of the heart. Press the bottoms of the feet together and kick the feet into the arms, pull the feet towards the chest, and press the chest towards the feet. Stare at the big toes for balance.
5. Breathe and hold for 2-6 breaths.
6. To release: slowly exhale the feet back to the floor and release the arms.

When you stop learning, you stop living in any vital and meaningful sense. 🧠
It was when I stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself that I found there were no roots more intimate than those between a mind and body that have decided to be whole. - @rupikaur_
This is something I’ve been able to do since I was a kid. Cartwheels, handstands, full splits, drop backs... I’ve been practicing these for as long as I can remember.
But when I found yoga, everything changed. My innate flexibility was met with newfound strength. The movement that always came natural to me was suddenly saturated in awareness and intention.
In so many ways, on so many levels, yoga really changed everything. 🐬 #yoga #Maldives #dhigurah #gamechanger #grateful

I never thought my fingers will ever touch my heels in wheel pose. Even after it happened, I was still doubtful that it actually happened. When Master showed me this photo, she looked at my disbelief face & said to me “This is YOU, not me.” I never dreamed or wished for this day as IT IS something that seems so impossible for someone like me. Can someone pinch me please?
Happiness is not something readymade; it comes from your own actions. .
The light that yoga sheds on life is something special, it is transformative. it does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees. The moment I remember to breathe and connect to what’s real, connect to love, get grounded, get present, then everything has a way of sort of falling into place.
So, surround yourself with people who push you to do and be better. no drama or negativity; just higher goals and higher motivation; good times and positive energy. No jealousy or hate; only simply bringing out the absolute best in each other
my awesome teacher; amazing friend 🙏🏻
I don’t like showing my face coz I don’t like the way I look.
I’m not pretty, I’m not super awesome.
And Yes, I’m an underwear model but I just don’t like my face.
Me is ME! I still love myself;
life does not get better by CHANCE
It gets better by CHANGE, by cutting people out of my life, doesn’t mean i hate them, simple mean “respect myself”.
Not everyone is mean to stay.
Forget the ones that forgot you .
When you think you are good, one more step, you will know you still have a long way to go.
