If I had a dollar for every time I had to approach a student individually to get them into Sukhasana, I think I'd have enough for another teacher training 😂 My teaching method is to start everyone on a block to elevate the hips, and then demonstrate each movement as I instruct them to "sit cross-legged, bringing the knees in toward each other and the feet forward, so that the legs are resting on the feet." . Recently I've started being more specific by adding to "cross the shins". Even with this, half the class (usually new students as most of my regulars understand by now) is typically in some form of padmasana or with ankles tucked in closer to the groin. (Swipe to see those). . Here is a step-by-step from @yogajournal: . Step 1 Fold a thick blanket or two into a firm support about six inches high. Sit close to one edge of this support and stretch your legs out in front of your torso on the floor in Dandasana (Staff Pose). . Step 2 Cross your shins, widen your knees, and slip each foot beneath the opposite knee as you bend your knees and fold the legs in toward your torso. . Step 3 Relax the feet so their outer edges rest comfortably on the floor and the inner arches settle just below the opposite shin. You'll know you have the basic leg fold of Sukhasana when you look down and see a triangle, its three sides formed by the two thighs and the crossed shins. Don't confuse this position with that of other classic seated postures in which the ankles are tucked in close to the sitting bones. In Sukhasana, there should be a comfortable gap between the feet and the pelvis. . . . #yoga #yogateacher #meditation #mindfulness #practicedaily #practiceandalliscoming #yogapose #yogachallenge #yogaeveryday #yogaeverydamnday #yogagirl #yogajourney #yogisofinstagram #health #healthy #body #mobility #movement #movements #functionalmovement #functionaltraining #bksiyengar #iyengaryoga #yogaprops #sukhasana #crosslegged #sit #sitting
Day 21 #ashtangayogachallenge is #garbhapindasana. So, I'm realizing this is not the most flattering pose, but, hey, it's real! 😂 There are several steps to get into this pose. First, #padmasana or #lotus. If you aren't quite there yet, #sukhasana will work. Second, getting those arms through that teeny, tiny space between your legs. Number one: loooose padmasana. This is not the same padmasana you have for #yogamudra, make it open and loose. Number 2: grease up those arms with sweat, water, baby oil, whatever it takes! 😂😂 slide those babies through your legs as far as you can and hope for the best. 😁 Otherwise, just hug your arms around your #sukhasana or #padmasana. #namaste @kinoyoga @omstarsofficial

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. … There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter. —Rachel Carson, Silent Spring
Modified Chakorasana into Astavakrasana plus a [very] sticky transition back into Sukhasana 😂. Slowly working on my core strength, maybe someday I'll get my extended foot all the way up to the sky & my other foot behind my head....maybe. Gentle reminder that the depth of our asana practice is not directly related to our depth as yogis. As my teacher always says, "asana is one small piece of a VERY big practice". We can't truly call ourselves yogis if we are only practicing asana, that's when it becomes merely about fitness. We must be practicing all 8 limbs simultaneously to expand outward as we learn to connect with everything around us . . . . . Last night I had a short practice that consisted mostly of sun salutations followed by a lot of seated postures from the primary & secondary Ashtanga series. It was a very different practice than my "typical" practice, but t felt really good. Just listening to my body to guide my movements & feeling the depth of my breath to see if the body had more space to give. . . . . #yoga #yogini #yogapractice #ashtanga #astavakrasana #practicedaily #asana #pranayama #sukhasana #michiganyogi #michiganyoga #practicemakesprogress #practiceandalliscoming #practicepracticepractice
Day 1 of the #SummerLove challenge for @hotpoweryogawy is #sukhasana It took me years to feel comfortable in this pose, and then yesterday I was comfortable enough to do this on a bleacher at the rec center while supervising students. The hands on the heart and belly are always comforting to me. Finding a connection to my breath, and pulling my awareness into myself has been an interesting journey. Thank you @drealzalde and @dianaelterman for setting up this awesome challenge!!!

This is how I'm feeling now.. I had no service to do a online class! And there was no yoga studios no where in town.. I love being in the south but no service, minimal wi-fi and now no yoga is a no go!! I wasn't able to walk either! 😩😩💆🏾💆🏾 - 🕉 - #yogi #yogamom #asana #curvyyoga #centered #practice #practicemakesperfect #fityoga #igyogi #yogacore #yogatraining #yogafitness #yogalife #yogalove #yoganation #yogajourney #yogajournal #yogaeverydamnday #yogafundamentals #Sukhasana #Utkatasana #yogasoul #fityogi #chubbyyoga #plussizeyoga #bronxyoga
