Day 4 #getstretchyeveryday is Forward Fold and theme’s Letting Go. It is a long struggle for me bed forward with a straight back, and little by little I’m reminding myself to let go of my own limiting beliefs, thoughts that my body can’t do it, and embracing good thoughts of flexibility, opening and capable. Not only we should let go of things that don’t have a purpose in our lives, but also random and unproductive thoughts that blocks our journey to the self😊 @actionjacquelyn @getstretchy
Day 3 of #getstretchyeveryday is Downward Dog and theme is New Perspectives, especially around LOVE. I think self love is one of the hardest love for me to develop. Is so easy to find personal flaws, and bring one down rather than doing the opposite. Rather than behind grateful of a good night sleep, first thing when I wake up is how my dark circles make me look ten years older and how my thin hair has no fix. Developing a good relation with our own body and love it, it is crucial if we plan to give love to others. Need to see the other perspective of everything in life. I’m sure once I see myself as an amazing human being, new ideas, thoughts and possibilities will happen in life. @actionjacquelyn @getstretchy
Very behind on the #getstretchyeveryday challenge but better late than never. Day 2 was warrior 2 pose and getting be power back theme. Personally, getting power back sounds harder than I thought. A lot of times while browsing IG I get discouraged when comparing myself to others. Sometimes that means my own insecurities are blocking me to be my own fullest either in life, at yoga, etc. Warrior 2 reminds me to get back my power of warrior in life, on the mat and to ignore any distractions. @actionjacquelyn @getstretchy
Starting a new 7-day challenge#getstretchyeveryday First day is #treepose and what does to stay grounded is for me.... staying grounded for me is to be able to find inner peace, able to let the distractions flew by while focusing in the right now. A lot of times I’m spending time with my kids, but checking emails, messages, and a lot of stuff that is blocking me from living the present and being present with my kids. Need to ground my priorities and let the rest just pass by. @actionjacquelyn @getstretchy
Its the weekend!!!! Have a great weekend and do some yoga!
Going through IG and saw @adellbridges showing a tutorial of this pose, or a close copy of her pose. I thought it could be easy to do, but it really requires a lot of shoulder balance and leg flexibility. Found another pose to keep practicing and evolve.
Floating Camel. I saw @ania_75 tutorial for this pose, and gave it a try. To be honest, I’m not nearly as good as her, and I don’t know why but this pose terrified me. Probably because is a heart opener pose and I always go a bit easy on them. Oh well, will keep practice it and see what happens. Go check her pose, looks so nice. #floatingcamel.
Better late than never, right? Rafael is 5 months already and in 10 more days he turns 6 🙈He’s growing at lighting speed and if I blink I might miss all his milestones. He is laughing a lot, talking out loud, and still sucking his thumb or both hands at times. Today he was moved to a bigger crib, because his other one was too small for him. I’ll miss co-sleeping with him I know that for sure.
Happy Monday! Here’s a little video on how I get into side crow. Enjoying the progress and struggle to get into this pose. Learned that it is all about the twist and hooking you leg into the arm. Enjoy!
