GRACEFUL BOW Thanks. For all your heartfelt comments, emails, messages, posts and RL hugs. You caring has meant so much to me and my family over the past months. 🙏🏻 It has been months filled with uncertainty and of course great challenge, with my husbands illness. So thank YOU. ❤️ I am on my way back home from teaching my yintraining, module 2 for two days in the magnificent town of Lund, @rajayogalund. Ahead is a couple of weeks of downshifting. First is another week of group classes, admin work, writing, filming. And my birthday of course 🤔🎉. Then I am prioritizing family, downtime and being with people I love. ⭐️ #newbeginnings#healing#caring#family#stayinghome#staycation#takingcareofmyself#andmyfamily#stayingsolid#strong#unboundpotential#matsyendrasana

Baddha Matsyendrasana (Bound Lord of the Fishes Pose) 🐟🐟 . . Yoga postures are often named for mythological figures in the hope that practicing them might help us attain some of their heroic attributes. The story of the fish Matsyendra highlights the virtues of concentration and stillness—and offers a parable for the transformative power of yoga. According to the ancient tale, the Hindu deity Shiva was on an island, explaining the mysteries of yoga to his consort Parvati. A fish near the shore remained motionless and listened with rapt attention. When Shiva realized that the fish had learned yoga, he blessed it as Matsyendra, Lord of the Fishes. The fish then took a divine form, came on land, and assumed a seated spinal twisting posture that allowed him to fully absorb the teachings. Yogic lore credits this twist with such important benefits that it is one of the few asanas described in a seminal 14th-century manual on yoga called the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. This classic guide anoints Matsyendra as the first human teacher of hatha yoga and says that the posture dedicated to him fans the gastric fire, cures all diseases, and awakens kundalini shakti. 🐍 . . •Opens the rib cage & chest •Enhances digestion & elimination •Stimulates the liver & kidneys •Energizes the spine •Stretches the shoulders, hips, back, and neck #generalsherman #sequoia #largestlivingorganism #baddha #matsyendrasana #lordofthefishes #seatedspinaltwist #gettwisted

@doyouyoga #festiveandfit #yogakitty I thought I’d include a #yogablooper #yogafail My lovely CH kitty Kibo wanted a piece of the #yogaaction It’s very important to practice mindfully - especially with #matsyendrasana #lordofthefishespose I don’t practice the full expression because of a neck problem. It’s fine to modify - you do you ❤️ Listen to your body and move softly and with ease @stralayoga #stralaeverywhere
