☺#Sukhasana ↔ #EasyPose on 👉@yogaalignment #yogaforeverybody with @yogawithkalyani 👈 ・・・ Today's #AlignWithKalyani pose is Sukhasana or Easy Pose. . This pose is usually done at the beginning and end of every yoga class. We start in this pose to centre the body and use it for meditation and pranayama. . . 😍Great Sukhasana Alignment: 👌No tension in the face (esp eyebrows, forehead and jaw) 👌Neck in line with spine and lifting through the crown of the head 👌Back long and straight 👌 Shoulders down and back 👌 Chest open 👌 Legs in a comfortable cross-legged position 👌 Optional: hands engaged in some type of mudra or rested in the knees . . 😞 Not so great Sukhasana Alignment: 👎 The face is tense 👎 The back is rounded and neck kinked 👎 Slouching shoulders or too far back causing an arched back 👎 Closed Chest 👎 Leaning too far forward 👎 Legs uncomfortable . . 🙋Sukhasana Modifications: 👐Sit against a wall with your sacrum and shoulder blades against it. Don't let the lower back or back of the head touch. Place a small blanket between the lower back and wall for extra support. ☁️Raise the hips by sitting on a bolster or blanket 👀Use a mirror so you can see for yourself . . . . 👇Benefits of Sukhasana - Improves posture - Increased body awareness - Strengthens back, shoulders and chest - Stretches knees and ankles - Lengthens Spine - Helps align the chakras - Enhances feelings of peacefulness and serenity . . 👊Need a challenge? Try using different leg positions and other seated poses . . ❓ Questions? ❔Comments? Let me know if you'd like me to post more like this! ❤️❤️ . .

When I’m achey and tired and feeling like shit, I’ve still got my yoga practice. I sit still and breathe and wait for this to be done. Yoga gives me that patience and the trust that this too shall pass.
No yoga WEDS FRI or SAT #namaste #holiday #quietmind #yoga #breath #sukhasana
Day 1 of #mermaidmeditation with #sukhasana and the mantra I am grateful for simple things. I’m a big fan of restorative yoga and always enjoy easy pose. Today and each day I am grateful for my health and family.

Day 6,7 and 8 of #YogisGratitude. First pic grateful towards "Confidence", second pic grateful towards "Breath" and for last day grateful towards "Balance". So I went with #Heropose #Sukhasana and #tiptoetreepose. Thanking the amazing host and wonderful sponsors for this challenge, a yoga journey together with amazing souls through which I could show my gratitude to each every thing I am blessed with to walk on the journey of life. ..... .... ... When we focus too much on what we want, the mind creates reasons why we cannot have it. So, I am grateful that I have been blessed with confidence so that I don't focus only but work to get what I deserve and I am grateful for this quality. ...... ..... A basic method is to focus our attention on our own breathing—a practice called, quite simply, “mindful breathing" and I am grateful that I am blessed to breath mindfully and full of gratitude for each breath I am blessed. ....... ...... ..... Balance is one thing we all strive for but the moment we are aware and start to be grateful for what we have and are grateful for everything happening for us on the journey, life presents us with balance. ..... ________ _________ #Indianyogi #yogachallenge #yogaeveryday #spiritualbeing #zorba #ig_India #igyogis #igyogacommunity #igyogafamily #practiceallwillcome #yogaeverydamnday #yogafitness #instayoga #yogateacher #asthanga #vinyasaflow #truetoself #yoga4ever #yoga4unity #strength #yogastrong #gratitude #loveall
Another meditation picture. Can’t stop talking about or continuosly trying to spread the vibe, the feeling, the benefits that meditation gives me. 🙏🏼 No effort is needed. Just find somewhere to sit, close your eyes and be still, both mentally and physically for a while. Start with 3 minutes. Either put on a mantra to listen to, choose a guided meditation or just sit in silence focusing on your breath. It is as simple as that. And sure, I know 3 minutes might feel like an eternity at first (it did for me too) but keep on doing it and just see what happens. Anyway, this is me, ending my workday with 10 minutes of meditation in complete silence. Setting the tone for this evening 🙏🏼 Who loves meditation as much as I do? 🤗❤️ #itsinthelittlethings #meditation #meditationmagic #wisdom #be #stillness #peace #yoga #yogagirl #makeripples #yogini #yogaatwork #yogawork #neveralone #fierce #free #strong #yogapt #selflove #sukhasana #yogateacher #yogastockholm #easypose
Day 325: Lower back (mostly) passive stretches for @energy_flash. The 3 ways to stretch the lower back are traction (the first 2 pics: passive #downwarddog with the strap, and hanging over a table), backbending (the 3rd pic: supported #bridgepose), and twists (the final two pics: #sukhasana with a twist variation, and #supinetwist on the floor.) Now in all of these poses, the crucial element is to lengthen the spine as much as possible before doing anything else. In the 2 traction poses, this will happen naturally, but in the back bend, and the twists, you have to actively make your spine as long as you can before you bend/twist, or you’ll actually be making things worse. #yogaeverydamnday #realmendoyoga #mensyoga #yogadudes
Feel very grateful for this practice this morning and everything it brings with it. When things are getting on top of me I can always come back and find my grounding. #namaste #yoga #yogateachertraining #yogaeverydamnday #sukhasana #gratitude

Took a few moments under the clothesline today before I hung the washing out to dry, before I kept racing through the morning to get my miss middle to hospital on time. As a Mum I often have my hand on my heart, hoping & believing that everything will be okay. Waiting for my baby to wake up from surgery & distracting myself with Insta. Sometimes life sux but hospitals can be very grounding, someone’s always worse & you are always worse than someone else. We are all in it together & no one wants to be here.
