Struggling with your Yogi Squat?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
First things first – nothing wrong at all with your heels being lifted nor your spine being rounded. But many people have a goal of getting their heels down in this pose or simply being able to feel more comfortable and less hunch-back and that’s what this post is for.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A common misconception is that this is due to limited range in the ankle – it COULD be but it’s a pretty rare scenario and if you can low chair or downdog with no ankle issues it’s highly unlikely it’s your yogi squat problem ✌🏼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So swipe across for some tips and ideas to help you work on this.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Take your feet wider and turn your feet out. Allow the external rotational abilities of the hip to be used for maximum efficiency
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All poses to help work on the hip flexibility for this pose. Similar to yesterday’s post, this range of flexibility is about being able to make yourself a small ball.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Very much hope this helps! These tutorials are made off the back of requests from you guys so let me know below what else you struggle to do or understand 🥰

The Free Penis: When Going Commando Is Appropriate

The unfurnished basement. Going commando. Gringo style. There are a number of euphemisms for a free penis, which is to say, a tool that is unencumbered by underwear. Ridding oneself of the boxers or briefs can be a great experience (although men do need to take steps for proper penis care to avoid getting a chapped member). While letting it all hang out beneath a pair of jeans or trousers can be pleasurable, it’s wise for a man to remember that some occasions are appropriate for this style of undress while others are not.

Go commando!

In general, here are some situations in which shucking the underwear is acceptable:

– When wearing cycling shorts. Many cyclists or others who wear sporting gear that is similar to cycling shorts opt out of wearing underwear; as anyone who has participated in a triathlon can attest, the changing area between segments is usually devoid of undergarments (at least among the male participants). Dispensing with underwear provides for greater ease of movement and, some believe, gives men a bit of a competitive edge.

– If kilted. One is perfectly welcome to wear underwear with a kilt, but many opt to let the boys hang loose when putting on the plaid. There’s some debate over whether the traditional Scottish manner of wearing kilts is without boxers, but regardless of when the tradition started, it is certainly common today.

– During pajama time (at least at home). A man’s member likes to have its freedom to stretch out while sleeping, just as its owner does. Wearing nothing under the pajamas is acceptable – although, one may wish to re-think this when wearing pajamas at a mixed-gender sleepover.

– At a nudist camp. Well, d-uh, this kind of goes without saying.

– Any time when embarrassment is not a factor. Walking around town with only one’s khakis covering the groin is perfectly fine provided that one is not embarrassed by it – and that one isn’t causing undue discomfort among onlookers.

– Any time when advertising oneself. Guys who like to flaunt it opt for the commando look to make sure potential partners know what they’re getting into.

Think twice.

Naturally, there are times when sporting a free penis is not advisable. Among these would be:

– When clothes shopping. Sorry, a guy may love his own junk, but no man wants to try on pants or shorts that have been pressed against another guy’s naked tool. Respect for others outweighs personal freedom in this circumstance.

– In a dripping situation. One of the drawbacks of going commando: Those little drops that dribble out after urination (or, in the case of semen, before and after ejaculation) don’t have an underwear barrier to catch them. Post-bathroom spotting can be obvious; potentially even more embarrassing, a man’s pre-seminal fluid can cause a stain when his bare member gets overexcited, ruining his efforts to appear cool and in control.

– At a yoga class. Sorry, but yoga puts one’s body in too many strange and exposed positions for commando style – unless, of course, it’s a naked yoga class.

– If meeting her parents. The last thing a guy wants is to be popping a boner in front of his girl’s folks while wearing no underwear. The mom is likely to blush, while the dad may put you down as a pervert who’s never going near his little girl with that thing. Even if a dude always hangs loose at other times, he needs to dress it up for these occasions.

One downside of a free penis is that friction from jeans, trousers or other fabrics can make it quite sore. To counteract this, lather on a first-rate penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) that features a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (vitamin E, for example). These can soothe raw, irritated skin. Men may benefit even more from a cream that also contains acetyl L-carnitine, which is neuroprotective. Sometimes, the rubbing of the raw penis against rough fabric can cause a loss of sensation in the tool; this ingredient may help restore sensitivity.

Boyhood – A Path Breaking Epic

Richard Linklater’s Boyhood is audacious in its ambition. To film a movie for 12 years involving the same cast and crew is something next to impossible. 12 years is a long time in one’s life. You can’t pen down a complete script that could actually be filmed over 12 years. Things would evolve as years go by, as something that is prevalent in the 2000s may not even be relevant now. That is just one of the many challenges faced by Linklater. Casting is another huge challenge for a project of this scale (not in terms of budget but the sheer time frame). How committed the cast and crew were for that long period is beyond my understanding.

Boyhood is a beautifully crafted time-lapse study of a boy named Mason, growing up from the age of 5 to 18. The movie beautifully captures Mason’s journey from his primary school to his first day in college. Ellar Coltrane played the role of Mason. Linklater would shoot every year with him and other supporting cast, who grow older beautifully around him. The director’s real life daughter plays Masson’s sister Samantha. Samantha’s reluctance to bond with her brother is conveyed through her subtle but effective expressions. Her discussion with her biological father on sexual precautions is conceived wonderfully by the director and emoted beautifully by the young actress. The other pivotal character is Mason’s mother played by Patricia Arquette. Her transition from a young mother to a middle aged woman is superb. Her character slowly grows on you and as the movie goes by, you urge her to take better decisions. Mason’s biological father played by Ethan Hawke is another crucial cog in the wheel. Though unreliable and irresponsible, he is charming as a guide to the young Mason and Samantha. From a nonchalant young divorced father, he too makes a wonderful transition to a caring and settled middle aged family man. Everyone plays their role perfectly and its Mason who takes the lion share of the cake. From being a cute child to a handsome college going teenager, he just boggles your mind with his ease of acting.

Apart from the long 12 year time lapse concept, Boyhood has soul and substance. Its unconventional and steers clear of the clichés of over the top Hollywood drama. The movie stays with you long after you leave the auditorium. The beauty of Boyhood lies in its reality and simplicity. Hats off Richard Linklater.

Half camel pose – ARDHA USTRASANA – to open up and stretch the the shoulder, upper arm, and chest. This pose is also connected to the heart chakra, Anahata. It is your energy center of love, and responsible for your sense of caring and compassion. Because of this many people find camel or half camel difficulty not only because of the back bend, but because of troubling emotions. #halfcamelpose #ardhaustrasana #heartchakra #anahata #chakras #yogachakra #emotionalhealth #innerwavesyoga #hathayoga #yogapractice #yogaeveryday #yogaforeverybody

The Futility Of Worry

I’m a worrier — have been all my life. I remember as a child, my father always telling me, “Reg, you’re going to worry yourself to death!” I will worry about anything — you name it, and I have some deep concern about it. Once, during a therapy session, my psychiatrist asked, “Reg, is there anything you don’t worry about?” I responded, “well, I don’t worry that tomorrow I’m going to wake up and discover I’m a female, but everything else is fair game.”

One bit of good news for me — I don’t believe I’ve passed my worry genes to my children. (I’ve of course worried about this, too.) On my oldest daughter’s Facebook page, she notes — “Don’t worry about anything. Phil 4: 6-7.” Maybe my daughters will grow up to be well-adjusted people in spite of dear old dad.

The sad truth is that 1 in 4 Americans suffers from an anxiety disorder sometime in his or her life. As the old Chinese saying goes, “the mind is man’s best friend or his worst enemy.” And to add insult to injury, worrying is completely useless. We all know this. I’m reminded of a quote — “Worry is a futile thing. It’s somewhat like a rocking chair, although it keeps you occupied, it doesn’t get you anywhere.”

The effects of worry can be debilitating. Excessive worry can cause a whole host of health problems, including fatigue, nausea, head and muscle aches, and insomnia. At it worst, it can lead to coronary artery disease and heart attacks. The Indian philosopher Krishnamurti put it beautifully, “if your eyes are blinded with your worries, you cannot see the beauty of the sunset.”

So, if we all agree that worry is useless and debilitating, how can we stop it? Recent studies agree that there has been much progress of late in treating anxiety and worry — even the most severe of cases. And some of the most effective treatments are simple things anyone can do.

Regular exercise is a great stress reducer. Any exercise will help. I heartily recommend yoga and walking/running. Meditation can also help train the mind and provide one with the tools to keep unchecked worry at bay. Prayer helps, too. If you are so inclined, offer up your worries in a prayer to God. (One of my favorite prayers is Matthew 11:28 — “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Sometimes it helps to remind me to let go and let God take control.)

Another way to combat worry is to connect. Try to stay connected with family, friends, classmates, and colleagues. Being alone is a real danger for the worrier. With no one around to help keep the mind occupied, it is free to roam into dangerous, negative territory.

If these steps do not help, you may need professional help. Excessive worry (the kind that can interfere regularly with your ability to live your life) maya be a symptom of a serious disorder, like OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and could also lead to panic attacks. If this might be your case, please consider consulting your physician. All these ailments are treatable and there are many types of therapies available, including simple talk therapy up to a wide variety of medicine and other treatment. You and your physician/therapist could decide and work through the best course of treatment for you.

My friends, worry is useless and unnecessary. But it seems to be becoming a greater problem now more than ever. If you think you need help, you probably do. And you are never going to be able to focus on finding peace and happiness until you can get your mind under control. You simply won’t have the stamina to stay focused on the positive if you are trapped in the negative. Don’t stay beholden to worry. Please take care of yourself and get the help you need.

Yesss 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 Hello lovelies!! 💗

Last day of
#resolutionhandstand2021
I want to start by thanking the amazing hosts for their wonderful tips and all their support. Also, to the incredible handstand community all cheering each other 🤸🏻‍♂️🤸🏻‍♂️🤸🏻‍♂️

Assignment today was yogis choice, so I went for the following:
Leg shape: Split
Drill: Split warm up / pincha practice

I love to use blocks to warm up for my splits. I have short hands, so it really helps me to shift better from low/high lunge to hamstring stretch as you will see in the video.

I also included a forearm practice for split and finally the handstand practice. In the first picture I used the windowsill for support and better extension 😉

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!! 😘✨

Yoga – A Gentle Alternative For Health and Fitness

Yoga originated in ancient India. In its original meaning, it was allied with mental and physical disciplines, but in modern times in the west has come to be mainly associated with its physical aspect, known by the Sanskrit word as Asana. Asana is a body position which is associated with the restoration and maintenance of the wellbeing of the individual who practices the art. Asana is only one of a number of aspects of yoga, the majority of which are associated with the spiritual and mental aspects.

The advantage that yoga enjoys over many other popular physical disciplines is the fact that it does not involve the body in stressful high-impact exercise. It is also performed in a non-competitive context so that the individual ego doesn’t get much of a chance to intrude into proceedings.

There are a number of postures or poses involved in yoga that are designed to increase the practitioner’s strength and flexibility over time. No matter how inflexible you may be, there is always room for improvement, and your own individual progression is the only path that you need to be pursuing. Breath control and meditation may be included in yoga classes, depending on whether or not the individual teacher likes to involve some of the spiritual aspects of yoga with the physical aspects.

There are many different styles of yoga classes available. They are all involved with the same basic postures, but each style emphasizes different aspect of the exercise, such as Vinyasa, which involves the breath being in concert with the physical movements, or Ashtanga, which is a faster style and is also referred to as “Power Yoga”. Iyengar is concerned with the alignment of the body during the exercises. Another style with a strong emphasis on the breath is Kundalini, the purpose of which is the upper movement of energy within the body. Some of the other yoga styles are Sivananda, Kripalu, Anusara, and Jivamukti.

The basic postures include:

Sukhasana or sit/easy position, which creates an awareness of breathing and strengthens the lower back and opens the hips and groin

Dog and Cat, which makes the spine more flexible.

Tadasana or Mountain position which is a standing position which is designed to improve balance and posture.

Trikonasana or Triangle, which is a spine stretching exercise.

Bhujangasana or the Cobra, which also stretches the spine, strengthening the back and the arms, and opening the chest and heart.

Virabhadrasana or Warrior, which is an arm and leg strengthening exercise as well being an aide to improving balance.

Uttanasana or Forward Bend and Extension which stretches the spine and legs, and gives the neck and the heart a rest and is relaxing for the body and mind.

Savasana or The Corpse, which relieves stress and is relaxing for both mind and body.

Sethu Bandhasa or The Bridge, which is designed to improve flexibility and to make the abdominal muscles and lower back stronger.

Janu Shirshasana or Head to Knee, which increases flexibility while stretching the hamstrings and the back.

Adho Mukha Svanasana or Downward Facing Dog, which improves flexibility and strength while stretching the hamstrings and spine and resting the heart.

Ardha Sarvangasana or Half Shoulder stand which is good for improving the circulation of the blood, while stretching the upper back region and strengthening the abdominal muscles. It also helps to promote improved function of the thyroid gland.

So if you feel that you wish to pursue some path to fitness and wellbeing, and the thought of pounding the pavements and putting up with sweaty gyms does not appeal to you, then the gentle art of yoga may be just what your inner doctor ordered.
