April intentions day 25
Wide angle seated forward fold

Via yogajournal:

  1. Sit in Dandasana, then lean your torso back slightly on your hands and lift and open your legs to an angle of about 90 degrees (the legs should form an approximate right angle, with the pubis at the apex). Press your hands against the floor and slide your buttocks forward, widening the legs another 10 to 20 degrees. As with Dandasana, if you can’t sit comfortably on the floor, raise your buttocks on a folded blanket.
  2. Rotate your thighs outwardly, pinning the outer thighs against the floor, so that the knee caps point straight up toward the ceiling. Reach out through your heels and stretch your soles, pressing though the balls of the feet.
  3.  With your thigh bones pressed heavily into the floor and your knee caps pointing up at the ceiling, walk your hands forward between your legs. Keep your arms long. As with all forward bends, the emphasis is on moving from the hip joints and maintaining the length of the front torso. As soon as you find yourself bending from the waist, stop, re-establish the length from the pubis to the navel, and continue forward if possible.
  4. Increase the forward bend on each exhalation until you feel a comfortable stretch in the backs of your legs. Stay in the pose 1 minute or longer. Then come up on an inhalation with a long front torso.

Today’s intention is to accept what is. This intention is an ongoing journey for me.

Have a great weekend, all!

If you want to beggin to practice yoga but don’t know how, these are my tips for start to practice yoga in home!
Sometimes we don’t know how to start and we start to do advanced poses and that make us feel so discouraged because we have troubles with the poses and at the end we get hurt and without any energy to try it again, so check these tips that i give you before to start.
All type of body can do yoga!, you don’t have to be super skinny or super flexible, you can start just now:
How can I start?




+ Equipment you need a mat, if is double better and check out that is non-slip surface for your practice, (I spend 30 dollars to buy mine) /// your clothes needs to be confortable and you need leggings or pants for yoga, try to  not do it with jeans or clothes that doesn’t strech this ones can hurt you, you can do it with shoes but I truly recommend without, if you have cold in your feets you can use socks.
I just eat, how much time i need to wait?
+ Eat Don’t have a big meal right before/after class. You can have a light snack an hour or two before class and be fine. Do not eat 30 minutes after the class; after half an hour of your yoga practice drink a glass of warm milk or fruit juice and In the lunch, eat easily digestible foods like soups,sprouts, fruits and vegetables. Avoid fried, meat and heavy grain foods. /// Drink as little as possible during the yoga practice - and preferably not at all! Therefore, make sure to drink enough beforehand /// It is recommended not to drink for 15 minutes and eat for half an hour after the yoga practice to let the body calm down again.
Where can I practice?
+ Create a tranquil atmosphere. Make sure you have enough floor space to move forward, backward, left, and right without running into or hitting anything. If you don’t already have this space, you may need to clear out some clutter.
How beggin my practice?
+ Practice Alignment the precise way that the body lines up in each posture. Good alignment is very important to minimize the chance of injury /// After the yoga practice you should rest for 10 minutes in Savasana - relaxed and with normal breathing. Put on some extra clothes or a blanket so you don’t get cold. ///If you experience emotional reactions during or after the yoga practice welcome and accept the emotions. If you like you can talk about it with your friends/tumblr/ me ü / your family.

Choose a time in which you will not be disturbed:Take 3- 5 breaths in every pose
Decide how often you want to practice. Ideally you should practice every single day, but you can practice anywhere from once a week to seven days a week. You will obtain the most benefits if you practice 5-7 days a week.
Deepen your practice. Once you have gotten started, find some ways to add variety and to take your practice to the next level. One way you can do this is by doing different types of poses on different days of the week. 
Keep a yoga practice journal. Write down all of your experiences and what’s happening to your body/mind, you can use a notebook or share it in your blog/tumblr pose.
You can have mini goals or participe in yoga challenges on instagram or tumblr, this can help you to see your progress and stay motivated!.
What kind of poses or videos can I do?

About ladies holidays?


+ Menstruation you can take “ladies holidays” when menstruating. As a minimum it is recommended to practice lightly on the first day of menstruation but naturally it is individual what you feel like doing (or not doing) during this period. I always do when I’m in my shark days because this makes me feel too much better and is also recommended to omit inverted postures during menstruation (ex.shoulder and head stands).
Trust in you!
+ Stay Positive: Don’t feel bad if you teacher corrects your postures. Hands-on instruction is the best way to learn good form. Try not to judge yourself harshly in comparison to what others are doing on their mats. Everyone is at a different place on the path. Stay light-hearted and keep your sense of humor. Laugh if you fall out of a pose, smile when things get difficult. Enjoy yourself.
+ Confidence: Remember that your practice is an individual process. No one else is inside your body, so defer to your own judgement about what you can and cannot do. DON’T FORCE ANY POSE Over time, you will learn to discern the difference between something you may be afraid of or think you can’t do and something that is actually painful and possibly injurious. There is no hurry to get into any particular pose. Listen to your own body and respect what it tells you about how to practice.
Well I hope this helps you, please always feel free to ask me or search help if you have some doubts.

What an awesome, helpful post!

Anons

  • There isn't a day that goes by that I log into tumblr that I see anon hate.

  • They say the most cruel and sometimes bigoted shit. Telling people to kill themselves.

  • They are certainly brave behind anonymity.

  • Cowards.

  • I swear, some of the shit I have seen makes me want yo become a hacker, track them down and drown them in an over flowing gad station bathroom.

  • I have my anon turned off.

  • If you come at me, you better have the God damn balls to reveal yourself.

  • Mind you, no one says shit to me. But I can't stand to see good people I follow treated like shit and told to kill themselves.

  • What the fuck kind of human does that?

  • And THEY think they are so superior that it justifies telling someone to kill themselves??

  • Fuck you anons.

Family Stories

  • So I'm interested in stories.

  • I was working on something the other day and I thought about my reaction to it. Will all this new tech coming out everyday it's hard to keep up.

  • I thought about my history and my family history.

  • Although my family never owned a camcorder, I remember when they came out my grandpa had one and a few friends. I thought they were so cool. Like holding a movie camera.

  • Then I thought back, what was it like when the 50's and 60's hit? That's when a lot of the household items came out.

  • Window AC units, refrigerators with freezers, lots of appliances.

  • Then earlier, the 30's is when people started getting radios in their home. It was actually a question on the 1930 U.S. census.

  • "Domestic science" was a course high school girls could take. Home economics in schools were becoming common.

  • When I directed the staged old time radio play of Orson Welles' War of the Worlds, I heard from a few people who went home and asked their grandparents about the show.

  • So I was wondering, what stories do you have?

  • Or have you heard any stories from your family?

  • About times changing in technology and such?

  • For example, when Social Security came out the same things were being said about it and the President as the ACA and Obama now.

  • Video game consoles? I remember some minor controversy about those frying kids minds.

  • If you have any stories I would love to hear them (especially if from my own family).
