Did some nature yoga today. These are some of my favorite moves. Having a history of a hairline fracture on my spine, doctors, medicines, and physical therapy is 1)too expensive and 2) not very efficient considering I will never have surgery. Yoga helps me crack and open up the joints and nerves that have been damaged for years. I used my back injury as an excuse not to be physically active because honestly I hate it but love how I feel afterward. After realizing how bound my body is and how tight it always feels, I decided to pick up yoga again for the first time since I was 11. I’m definitively a beginner yogi and have only done it a handful of times since I decided to start back up but already feel and see a difference. Even my boyfriend noticed! The fact that my hips are misaligned without me realizing made me realize I need to focus on my body more. It’s an easy thing that we humans make hard. Today’s products foods and even clothing prevent our bodies from releasing certain toxins that are supposed to be released. Looking forward to seeing how flexible I can become and how more gentle my body will feel. ❤️ #yoga#natureyoga#workout#stretch#brokenback#spinalinjury

In about a year, I achieved more balance and control on my body (and my mind!) and gain some flexibility. 〰️
I worked hard for it and I still do but I aknowledge the fact that I did progress. 😊
When I started to check the yoga community on instagram last year I felt really motivated to start when I saw progress pictures. I hope that mine may inspire some of you to believe in yourself. Nothing comes easy but after hard work it’s good to look back and see from where we started. 🙏🏻
Plow pose, when done correctly, is amazing for the hamstrings, shoulders, back and neck, helps restore function to many organs, and is a strong detox (physically and emotionally). Unfortunately, when it is done incorrectly, it can lead to injury very quickly 🤕 Make sure you are doing it right and read below for full details! To learn all the foundational poses, check out our ebook (link in bio). Thanks for sharing @actionjacquelyn#inflexibleyogis ・・・
Wanna do me a favor? 🤗 If you enjoy my yoga tutorials, tag two friend and support my mission in healing bodies NATURALLY through mindful movement, stretching and meditation. I would be so grateful!! 🙏🏼👯♀️😁 Today’s pose is Plow Pose, or Halasana. This stretches your posterior chain, all the way from your neck to your toes!! 👣 And it also increases circulation, suppleness, and vitality! It also has a very calming and restorative effect on the sympathetic nervous system, so it’s my favorite pose before heading into savasana 🙏🏽 There are various ways to position the arms, like pressing palms flat into the floor, and also clasping hands. I’m sure there are even more variations, so this is just one example of how to support the pose. It’s important to create length in the neck and keep your gaze forward so that you don’t strain your neck.
Hold this pose for 10 cycles of breath, then slowly bend your knees and roll the spine down until the whole back side of your body rests on the floor.
