Journal entry 16 ~ Three things that are important to you in a relationship ~ #digdeepyogis • Quality time ♥️ being able to shut everything else out and breathe in the richness of each moment. Wether that’s being silly, having serious talks, walking in the park, adventuring, we could be doing anything as long as it’s time connecting in the present moment. Which brings me to .. • Connection 🙌🏽 and being able to connect on several levels. There are friends and loved ones I have wonderful connections with but some are stopped from going deeper usually because one of us is blocking or stopping it from looking further into each other and ourselves. Evolving a relationship to deeper connection takes effort from both sides. It’s scary opening up, but I find such beauty in the vulnerability it takes to trust one another with each others dark and light parts. Someone I can talk to about anything, cuddle with, dream, cry, laugh, grow and show my true self with is someone I can grow energetic ties with 🤗 and it’s in those energetic places where I find my tribe. • Kindness and care • Being gentle with each other and letting one another know they’re supported and cared for promoted growth in the relationship and individually. We are loving, social creatures. We are here for one another and when we give and receive the care we so desperately need, we thrive ✨ Of course there are other important things like sense of humor 🙊 teasing, being non judgmental, trust, honesty :) @alissayoga @cherylfyoga @yoga_lovely 💚 @aloyoga @liforme

I realized haven't posted a progress pic in a really long time! I've now been practicing yoga regularly for almost 6 years, but it's hard for me to find photos that really show how much I've evolved since the biggest transformations have been in my strength, stability, and just generally becoming a lot less floppy 😆 When I first started yoga I couldn't hold plank. I thought my yoga teacher was joking when he told me I wasn't supposed to let my belly touch the floor in chattarunga- I just couldn't comprehend how that was possible!!! I couldn't do any arm balances or inversions and although I was fairly flexible from doing dance as a kid, I was super unstable. I used to hold my breath and try to force things, and I could only hold my poses if I got lucky and it was a good day. It amazes me how much my practice and my life have improved over the past few years as I began to find my breath, my core, and my confidence. I'm not sure how much of that shows in these pics, but my heart was becoming much more open and I was becoming so much stronger and more stable! 2012: started practicing yoga at least once or twice a week. 2013: started practicing several time a week and did my first 200-hour teacher training! Also the first photo I posted on IG that went "viral" and got reposted a bunch, and I started getting a lot of people following me on here. 2014: my first ever shoot with @aloyoga! ❤️I found out later that I was the first LA yogi they did a shoot with, which I thought was so cool ☺️Now Alo is my yoga family and I've met some of my closest friends because of it 💕 2015: my practice was becoming much stronger and more consistent. 2016: kind of the same as 2015 tbh... I hit a plateau. 2017: in January of this year I did my third 200-hour ytt, then started a 300-hour professional training program in February. I've been taking so many classes and studying and really focusing on learning what yoga is- both the physical practice and the science/ philosophy behind it- and it's made such a difference! I feel so much stronger in my body and in my soul. I can't wait to see how far this journey takes me 💗 #transformationtuesday

Do you want to reduce hips and knee pain and possibly do the splits!?🤸♀️😳 Today we are going over hip extension and flexion stretches/mobility. The point of this video is to show that there are numerous🔢 ways to stretch into these positions. They have subtle differences, but all have relatively the same effect. . . For @DocJenFit’s hip flexion mobility and stretches, she starts off with a classic💁 “hamstring” stretch. What you DON’T see👀 is that she is actively driving her heel 👠into the bench to activate the hamstring muscle WHILE stretching it. This is much more effective💪 than just simply stretching. As she lies down on the floor, she transitions between stretching the hamstring close to the knee when we bends the knee⤴️, to stretching the hamstring close to the hip when she straightens the leg↔️. She is also actively reaching her knee/toes to her chest, not just holding on and relaxing. Again, staying active in your stretches is far more beneficial and can give you a lot more mobility.📈 . . In the background, Andrew is mainly just jealous of Jen’s hip flexion. 😂When doing all of the hip flexor stretches except the last one, I (Andrew) am actively reaching the heel👡 of my shoe toward my butt🍑, even if you don’t see it move. This active movement during a stretch will help to increase “mobility” or strength in your end range of motion. The kneeling hip flexor stretch is just that, a stretch. I am actively reaching upward and breathing deep into the belly to stretch the abdominals and psoas muscle. . . The splits 🤸♀️at the end was just a bonus and will hit both hip extension and flexion. Jen is far superior in this department. 🥇 . . Tomorrow 🔜we will be going over the strengthening exercises for his flexion and extension! -💻Written by Andrew Dettelbach . . ⚡️You can learn to move better and live pain free!
