Flight Yoga is all about revitalizing the mind-body connection. And if your chest is caving in, your heart and mind are probably going along with it. The body stores emotions and chest openers are particular good for releasing sadness, grief, anger and frustration. The more you expand your sternum, rib cage and the rest of your upper body with chest openers, the more blood, oxygen and nerve circulation will be freed up to invigorate you mentally and physically. ** Just as you can practice heart opening in your thoughts and emotions, you can also experience opening the heart space in your physical body. Your heart resides within the thoracic cavity, which is surrounded by the rib cage, your sternum in the front; and the spine in the back. The bones are held together by soft tissues, cartilage between the vertebrae in the spine, between the three parts of the sternum, and as part of each rib as it attaches to the sternum; and by ligaments, which join bone to bone. There are ligaments, for example, between each pair of vertebrae, and ligaments holding each rib onto its adjacent vertebrae. Your diaphragm forms the floor of the thoracic cavity. ** Make space for your heart to beat and move freely. Creating a lifting sensation in the chest also lends itself to confidence and resiliency. ** Thanks for the beautiful photos @camleeyoga ** #energy #chakras #yoga #sandiego #socal #sandiegoyoga #sunnydays #taurus #yogaeverydamnday #wellness #healthylifestyle #selfcare #selflove #newmoon #change #balance #mindbody #befree #sd #vibes #vibrations #namaste #letitgo #yogalife #yogadaily #taurusmoon #yogaflow #yogainspiration #astrology #letthatshitgo
Needing a little Monday night cookie 🍪 fix? Here’s a great Paleo Cookie Skillet recipe from @losingitwithmelissa Ingredients: • 3/4 cup creamy almond butter • 1/4 cup coconut flour • 1/2 cup Big Tree Farms Vanilla Coconut Sugar • 1/4 cup melted then cooled coconut oil • 2 eggs • 1/4 tsp baking soda • lots of cinnamon • sea salt • 1 tsp vanilla extract • 1/2 cup unsweetened cacao chips Directions: Mix all the wet ingredients first, then add in the dry. Grease down the skillet with coconut oil to prevent sticking. The almond butter is super sticky so it’s kind of hard to even out, but you’ll get there eventually. Cook on 350 for about 20 minutes. 📷 @losingitwithmelissa #cookieskillet #paleocookies #healthyfoodporn #healthyfoodshare #healthyfood #healthyfood #healthyrecipes #healthydessert #paleo #paleodiet #paleorecipes #paleodessert #foodie #balance #eatwelllivewell #cookies #glutenfree #grainfree #dairyfree # #rootedingoodness
Announcing next month’s challenge: !!! Gravity plays a pivotal role in our practices and affects us all, whether we realize it or not. Sometimes we can do a pose but, when we change the relationship body-gravity, it becomes very difficult or, the other way around, a pose that was unattainable or too complicated, changes dramatically once you flip/turn/pivot it in your body. When I designed this I thought of 14 poses that I could ‘move’ in space, so they’d be felt differently when shifted. In the 2nd half of the challenge, we’ll be doing the same 14, only changing their orientation/relationship with gravity, so we can use it to our advantage, even defy it!!! Day 1 and 15 are a pair, day 2 and 16 too and so on until day 14 and 28 so, basically, we’re going twice through the same group of asanas. This will give a broader spectrum on how to poses that you might feel stuck. Chances are if we, literally, change the way we look at them, we’ll come up with ideas, solutions, tips and ways to advance our practice and deepen our knowledge. It’s a lot less complicated and WAY more fun than it sounds, I promise!!! Join in and let me prove it to you! As usual: follow @cyogalife, repost this calendar, comment, tag friends (easier to stick with it and finish!) and post using . Besides my daily explanations, tips and modifs, my helpers Jinny @jinny.suh.00 and Garry @gmcyoga will provide with further insights, so we can deconstruct each asana and use gravity as a tool and positive 🆙🆙🆙 influence! Join in, see where this month takes us! We start June 1st!!! #yogalove #yogini #photooftheday #handstand #balance #yogaeverywhere #yogaeverydamnday #healthy #yogapose #health
What does it mean to be healthy to you? Usually we think eating healthy and exercising. But recently I’ve been focusing more on internal health, cancer prevention, balancing hormones and gut health (because literally all health starts in the gut). Yes, eating healthy and exercising is part of it, but it really gives a deeper reason and focus to the whole health aspect and not just to look good on the outside. - Things like hormonal birth control, stress, weight loss, dieting, and poor eating all lead to imbalances of hormones and even digestive issues. This in turn leads to weight gain and even muscle loss. - The thyroid controls our metabolism and produces hormones and every cell in your body relies on it. So making sure that it’s working as best it can is soooo important to not only fat loss but for your body! - Here is what I’m doing: 🌱Eating one PLANT BASED meal a day, avoiding added sugars and processed foods. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage specifically can help hormones and prevent some cancers. I also cut out dairy. 🥦🍓OPTI GREENS 50 daily which is PACKED with phytonutrients, probiotics, and antioxidants 11 servings of fruits and veggies. 💊M-FACTOR multi vitamins to get those micronutrients but these also fight free radicals and stimulates natural hormone functions. 💊THYRO-21 provides thyroid glands with nutrients to help it produce hormones. This helps the body work properly and burn fat more efficiently. 💊ROYAL QUEEN helps control hormone fluctuations and regulate female hormones. - I am also considering getting my Nexplanon birth control removed and switching to a non hormonal form of birth control. - If you have questions or want to know how/why you should start your health journey on the inside please feel free to message me! I’m always here to help 😊 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #health #healthandfitness #thyroid #nutrition #healthyme #healthjourney #hormones #balancinghormones #birthcontrol #guthealth #thyroidsupport #supplements #nutrition #eatgoodfeelgood #healthyfood #eatgoodfood #behealthy #body #womenshealth #realtalk #womanshealth #balance #healthyfromtheinsideout

Ojo! No estoy diciendo que las calorías lo son todo,lo nutricional importa muchisimo pero una de las formas de buscar el balance es saber jugar también con las calorías de alimentos que de cuando en vez preferimos y se salen de las dietas convencionales y aburridas. .

Another delicious find in #austin - @eberlyatx . We’re busy parents of little kids - there’s definitely not enough dates outside of the house. But when we go out, we go out big. The #halibut in coconut curry was delicious, and the #agnolotti was simply divine! Can’t wait for another round! 🍽🍷😋 . . . . #dinnerdate #chefstasting #menu #octopus #salad #ratatouille #vegetables #fish #whole30 #pasta #paleo #balance #vegetarian #oysters #atx #eberly #justapinchaustin #dineatx #austineats #512eats
