yogitoes123 IT HAPPENED!!!!!! #questforthepress After months of smashing my face into the mat... It just happened! I couldn't even get my legs to come up an inch a week ago. When your body and mind are ready, everything falls into place 😎 #omgomgomgomg #imtooexcited I saw @fitqueenirene do this effortlessly in February and I've been trying since! It may not take a day or a week... But practice makes progress ️ 4h

yogitoes123 This morning we had a mandatory lecture at 8am and I pressed the button on my door to unlock my car. Nothing happened, I tried again and again, and then realized I locked myself out of my apartment since my keys for my apt/car are on the same chain I began to panic because I had twenty minutes to get to school but had to get back upstairs somehow to get my keys... Luckily the RA was around to let me in. But I started to feel myself get hot and sweat when I started to panic about missing lecture. I became aware of this and began to breathe, instead of holding my breath, so I didn't ruin my beautiful pink cashmere sweater with huge pit stains just another great way "yoga" has become more than just a practice on my mat. When I forget to breathe in my asana practice, I find armbalances so much more difficult and approach fear, instead of letting things just be. I used to fear smashing into my face in this variation but breathing makes it all better 😙😙 #asanapractice #yogaismymedicine #yogaeverydamnday #mapkinasekinasekinase #mapkinasekinase #mapkinase #kinasekinasekinasekinasekinasekineasekinasekinasekinase #wut #whonamesthesethings #jackieareyoudramatizingthisyet #himadisonandjackie 7h

yogitoes123 Day 16 #happyhealthyyogis is #WheresYourHeart this deep backbend really forces me to open the heart by using the wall. It wasn't always easy, especially with tight shoulders... But now I feel very open in my shoulders/heart center. Opening your shoulders against the wall is a great way to build flexibility and keep your alignment in check at the same time️ #timetopassout #inbedbefore9pm #success @_kariooo @shauna_harrison @hippie_heathen @yogaracheal @altaregousa @liforme @balinisports @onzie @glyderapparel 22h

yogitoes123 And then it happened... I didn't need my elbow into my side to find the arm balance. I found the fine line between strength and flexibility, hanging on and letting go. And as I let go off my mat, yet stand my ground for what I believe in, I find that life is so much easier to approach. Instead of fighting my way through life, I decide to accept what is going to happen and know that every outcome has a purpose ️ #consciousbreath 😙 #asana #asanapractice #ashtanga #yogi #happyhealthyyogis #maybethemountainsareturningmeintoahippy 1d

yogitoes123 For day 14 of #happyhealthyyogis the theme is #aboutme ️ @hippie_heathen asked us to share a few facts about ourselves... I'm Jordan I'm 20yrs old and a first year med student in rural TN! I graduated in spring with my BS in biochemistry and also want a degree in nutrition when I graduate in 2018 I love school and learning... But my favorite thing to do is bend and practice yoga. I'm gluten free/don't eat meat but I do eat some dairy, especially for protein. I love yoga clothes, too! My shirt is by @balinisports and my shorts are @onzie #theonzie #balinisports 2d

yogitoes123 So I'm laying in a puddle of sweat cause I just had an awesome practice I haven't had time to do very much yoga the last two days because of my exam schedule. My body was ready for a short, yet awesome, practice today before I get going for another long day of studying. You have to take a break sometimes to find the breath #yogaismymedicine || I'm LOVING my new @liforme mat it's perfect! 3d

yogitoes123 Sometimes I can have the worst attitude about things, especially if I decide I don't like something (or someone). I texted my mom to tell her I got a 100% on my osteopathic practice/principle practical. She was just like, "good job but do better in the lecture portion." I decided I didn't "like" this class because I don't like strangers touching me so I decided not to put in effort towards studying and got a 78% on the written exam. I used to have the same attitude with shoulder work. I refused to stretch my shoulders and could hardly do an overhead grip. Now my shoulders are almost as open as my hips and back... Because I decided to change my attitude about them and before long they got strong/flexible. So this morning, I acknowledged my bad attitude and decided to listen to my mom Giving yourself an attitude adjustment, both on and off the mat, can be a good thing. Approaching life with a positive attitude, whether you like it or not, can change the outcome of your situation immensely. #itsnotvoodooitsmuscleeneegy #juststayawayfromthehairandtheface#mymomisntevenallowedtotouchmyface 4d

yogitoes123 It's always so hard to choose my #FavAsana but I guess I will for day 11 of #happyhealthyyogis ️ I love full chest stand. It is both challenging on strength and flexibility. Why else is it awesome? It's one of the few places I can "feel" anymore. Being so mobile has made it hard to appreciate the sensations associated with asana practice. Finding deeper places to travel in my practice and opening new space is very exciting for me and I always love when I get that "yay! I can feel this" feeling. This deep backbend allows me to feel a huge stretch and it releases tons of tension in my back ️ join me and the other #happyhealthyyogis cohosts this month! @_kariooo @shauna_harrison @yogaracheal @hippie_heathen || @balinisports @onzie @liforme @glyderapparel @altaregousa || #balini #balinisports #balinisportswear #onzie #theonzie #yoga #asana #practice 6d

yogitoes123 Breathe and repeat.... full, deep conscious breathing paired with a diet high in dark, leafy greens and lots fruit, nuts, and protein with enough hydration is the best medicine around #yogaismymedicine #letthyfoodbethymedicine #letthymedicinebethyfood 6d

yogitoes123 When I don't feel good I eat loads of garlic instead of taking cold pills. When my back hurts, I stretch a little extra/eat anti-inflammatory foods instead of taking a pain relief. When I have a headache I do a headstand, eat some almonds, and drink more water.... Instead of taking headache relief. Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food. #preventativemedicine #antianythingfromapillbottle #juststahp #futuredoctor #garlickeepsawayvampiresandboys #trololol 7d

yogitoes123 Yoga is the best. It's amazing how everyday is different on my mat. Last night I practiced pretty late. I was irritated and uncomfortable, which showed up on my mat. I had a hard time connecting to my breath. Today when I got on my mat, after many hours of productive studying this morning, I felt connected immediately. I was able to check my worries out when I stepped onto my mat and within twenty minutes I was dripping with sweat. As I laid in shavasana, I felt the energy I created begin to settle and I ended up having an awesome day. Yoga teaches me more and more that nothing is constant, even my practice. Somedays are awesome. I feel light and free. Other days I feel like my body is a sack of potatoes and my legs are made from lead. But everyday that I get onto my mat, I learn to accept whatever is present and just practice. Check your ego off when you step onto the four corners of your mat and appreciate whatever is showing up, whether it is a good day or bad because no matter what, whatever you're feeling at the moment is not going to be here forever. #mypractice #asana #asanapractice #yoga #ashtanga #yogaeverydamnday 7d

yogitoes123 One of the saddest things, in my opinion, is that there are women (and men) that hate their bodies. Everytime I unroll my mat and step onto it, I am able to reconfirm just how amazing my body really is. Your body can bend, move, and support you. YOU (and your body) ARE AMAZING! Don't forget how awesome you are ️️ yoga allows me to discover over and over again that my body really is awesome 1w
