#yogisconnection2 October 15-21. This time we connect literally with poses spelling the word CONNECT. Day 7️⃣, the last one and letter T I chose #tolasana or #utpluthih
O one leg chaturanga
N nantum utthitahastapadangushtasana2
Day ⑦ of #YogisConnection2 - T - like tree pose, tolasana, etc.
Thank you all hosts and sponsors for this amazing challenge!
Letter T is the symbol for Tesla, the SI unit of magnetic fields, and Tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen. It's also a generic symbol for time, as in T=24s for a photo shot 24 seconds after leaving the camera.
My choice for last day is #Tolasana , although I usually use the #AshtangaYoga designation #Utpluthih . For additional challenge, I did it on #Bosu , both sides. Unlike most other balancing poses, this one was harder on the round side.
As of today, I feel the pain from post surgery wounds is fading and rising up from seated position do no longer hurt. My resting is no longer motivated by pain and fear but logic, healing will work better if I rest properly. I've also decided to keep being sober until I'm back to 100 percent strength instead of just until I'm off pain management pills, to make healing as smooth and stable as possible. So no alcohol before I can make leg switches in flying crow, make lotus headstands both ways, be stable in niralamba jathara padmasana and some other strength and coordination tests I'll compile later. And as a bonus, the pancreas and liver love sobriety.
Uma das consciências mais fantásticas que o Yoga têm despertado em meu coração é que não somos o corpo mas sim a potência interna que habita dentro dele, quando mantemos acessa a chama desse pensamento, vamos perdendo nossos medos em relação a esse mundo da matéria.
O corpo têm um prazo de validade e não por isso que devemos abandona-lo. Yoga é a ciência da saúde perfeita, mantém nosso corpo saudável, flexível e forte, puro como ouro mas o objetivo é bem mais profundo, é transcender nossa mente e nos conectar com a Alma.
Eu sei que minha prática é insignificante, mas não escondo o desejo sincero de evoluir e me libertar. É importante nos preparamos para ir embora, logo não vamos mais estar aqui. Busque um caminho que por todos os dias com disciplina e austeridade te aproxime do que é divino. #yoga#utpluthih#namastê
JAK CVIČIT JÓGU, KDYŽ NEOHNETE KOLENO
Na mém jógovém tréninku v @ashiyanayoga se kladl obrovský důraz na sestavu cviků, kterým se říká Pawanmuktasana Series. Ta sestava vznikla v Biharské jógové škole, tradice Satyananda. Nejdřív jsem byla skeptická a pobavená. Proč nás vůbec něco takového učí? Abyste si udělali představu - jsou to cviky ve stylu rotace kotníky/zapěstím, přitáhnout koleno k hrudníku, variace dřepu, zvedání nohou,... To je něco pro důchodce? Já chci přece stát na hlavě, plout v sexy vinyasa flow a sedět v lotusu!🧘🏻♀️
Od konce července mívám dny, kdy na pravou nohu nemůžu došlápnout (viz předchozí post), dynamickou vinyasu už jsem 2-3 měsíce nezažila a o lotusu si můžu nechat zdát.😁 Ovšem pawanmuktasana (v překladu “pozice pro uvolnění prány”) se stála mou každodenní záchranou. Uvědomila jsem si její efekt a variabilitu. A lidé, kterým jsem připravila sestavu, říkali, že tak krásné uvolnění a oživení těla nezažili hodně dlouho. Dobře sestavena sekvence rozhodně není jednoduchá, trochu se zapotím, zapojí se celé tělo a velmi šetrně se pracuje s klouby. Už jsem pochopila, proč je nedílnou součástí bezpečných lekcí a jak s ní pracovat, aby to byla zábava. #pawanmuktasana#yogalovers#yogaeverydamnday#joganapohodu#fyzioterapie#meniscus#meniscusinjury#padmasana#utpluthih#satyanandayoga
¡Mañana empezamos clases!
Existen diversos estilos de práctica y con diferentes enfoques y cada maestro le pone de su propia cosecha. En mi práctica encontrarás secuencias de posturas dinámicas y variaciones combinadas para hacer un trabajo integral, mantener y sostener una postura más de 5 respiraciones no esta papa 🥔 pero te permite trabajar en la flexibilidad y resistencia así como en la tonificación de músculos. La pregunta y/o duda en común de todos es sobre las capacidades que en el cuerpo creemos tener. El único requisito para la práctica es ser paciente.
Revisa mi historia destacada de los horarios que te ofrezco, me dará mucho gusto tenerte por acá. 🤟🏽

~ rise and shine ~
Let’sfly through the week lightly, strong and focused. Let’s keep smiling even when it gets a little bit tough. We’re all strong enough! Wishing you all a beautiful and successful week! May all what you’re striving for become true 🙏🏽💫🏔 #wholenessinside#weonlyhaveoneearth#riseandshine#keepsmiling
I’ve got a couple big things to share!
1) You can now find me at @giveyoga in Clintonville every Sunday at 9:00am for Stretch and Strengthen! If you like building postures from the ground up, and really getting to know the anatomy of *your* particular body, you’ll definitely get something out of this class.
2) For the next three Mondays, I’ll be subbing for @colleenmcfall for Slow Burn at 5:15pm at GIVE in German Village.
3) It seems I no longer need blocks under my hands in Utpluthih.
Hola! 👋Acá les dejo un videito mostrándoles cómo con estos bloques podemos empezar a practicar este pasaje que tanto nos cuestan, tanto en el #vinyasa como #utpluthih entre #navasana y #navasana .... si empujamos los Bloques hacia el piso nos permite tomar altura y así ganamos mayor espacio para elevarnos; Por otro lado NO OLVIDARSE que es funtamental activar los #bhandas , llevar las rodillas hacia el pecho y estirar bien los empeines... primero proba sólo con elevarte, una vez que logras esto, trata llevar los empeines hacia atrás haciendo un pequeño vaivén... luego intenta pasar del todo a #chaturangadandasana .... #pequeñostips para la práctica de #ashtanga . 👉🏻Y recorda que 1- las mujeres tenemos menos fuerza para producir estos pasajes y 👉🏻2- si bien son parte de la práctica no es condición fundamental para que puedas hacer una práctica linda y saludable. Buena práctica! 🧘🏻♀️ #Namaste 🙏 #ashtangayoga#ashtangalovers#yoga#yogapractice#yogalifestyle@maas_yoga@roma_leibman

Hello from Mysore 🖐 Led classes with Sharathji have made me realize that I need to learn how to count again in #utpluthih 😄 By the time I've had my 10 "long" breaths he is still counting 2 or 3 😅😥 #ashtangayoga#asanapractice#mysore

Secuencia 10 de de la postura del Loto en
Vinyasa Krama 🧘♀️
Tolangulasana o postura del loto en equilibrio. 🧘♀️ También se llama utpluti o Vinyasa en elevación en la postura del loto . ✨En la postura del loto , mantén las palmas de las manos a los lados . ✨Con la espalda recta, mantén esta posición durante tres inspiraciones y espiraciones prolongadas. ✨Luego, tras una espiración suave y completa, contén la espiración y haz fuerza con las palmas de las manos sin levantar los hombros . ✨Eleva el tronco y mantén el equilibrio sobre las manos . ✨Si puedes, permanece en esta posición durante tres respiraciones .
🙏🏻 Sir Srivatsa Ramaswami.
Las palabras Ashtanga yoga en sánscrito significan “ocho pasos del yoga” y hacen referencia al sendero espiritual del yoga que se practica desde la antigüedad. Sin embargo, si nos suenan estas palabras seguramente se debe a uno de los métodos más recientes de yoga físico llamado también Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga.
Orígenes del Ashtanga yoga
El Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga es una práctica intensa, dinámica y exigente que tradicionalmente también se ha conocido como método Mysore y que ha ido evolucionando con el tiempo. Su impulsor fue Pattabhi Jois, discípulo de T. Krishnamacharya, al igual que Indra Devi, B.K.S. Iyengar y T.K.V. Desikechar. Uno de los centenares de alumnos de Pattabhi Jois fue el belga André Van Lysebeth, quien con sus libros Pranayama y Aprendo Yoga, ayudó enormemente a la expansión del yoga en occidente.
Características principales del Ashtanga yoga
El Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga persigue la conexión con nuestra fuerza vital y destaca por la reverencia hacia los gurús que han transmitido el conocimiento. El método tradicional incluye 6 días de práctica y uno de descanso. Normalmente, de lunes a viernes, los estudiantes aprenden series de posturas predeterminadas y sin interrupción que pueden realiza
This is Caroline. She is lifting her entire body weight on her hands ❤️
When Caroline started practicing yoga at the beginning of the year she had very little strength and was not able to bear any weight through her wrists. She wasn’t strong enough to hold a single downward facing dog and was justifiably fearful of damaging her joints through her lack of strength, as she is hyper mobile. Over the past 9 months this lady has worked consistently and patiently, without any attachment to outcome. She trusted that regular practice results in physical and mental changes and has witnessed transformations in her body that she never imagined possible. I’m really proud of her 😊
Come to Mysore class at @ashtangabristol on Tuesday mornings 9.30-10.30am it’s suitable for any level. Message me or @nessiefletchyoga for details 🙏🏼 #yogaworks#yoga#ashtangayoga#yogaforeveryone#yogaforbeginners#bristolyoga#utpluthih Posted @withrepost • @nessiefletchyoga

Day ❻ of #FunOnArms4 - Lolasana / Tolasana
The #Tolasana and #Lolasana pair reminds me of how I got a yoga myth busted in summer 2017. The myth was that the longer and more complex Sanskrit designation, the harder the pose. And back then tolasana or #Utpluthih was the #armbalance I was most stable in (more stable than crow), while lolasana was a pop-up. Eight letters in both, and just one letter differed. Lolasana was way too hard to be just eight letters :D
I bring both tonight, and actually two shots of tolasana as I couldn't decide if I should bring the one on #FeetUpTrainer or the one on ground. 🌸💪 Hosts 💪🌸 .
Day 29 #purplevalleyseptember2019 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Utpluthih o Postura de la Balanza #utpluthih ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Fortalece las muñecas, brazos y abdomen
- Fortalece el cuerpo superior
- Mejora la postura de Loto (Padmasana)
- Ayuda a realizar otras posturas
- Ayuda a anclar la mente al momento presente, a través de la conciencia corporal, fuerza y balance
- La práctica regular de esta postura fortalece el cuerpo en general

With this last video I close this very challenging challenge 😊
Posting one video per day, reading Eddie Stern's book and trying to write something meaningful has been quite a lot of work.
Nevertheless, it has been very interesting to look at myself practicing and seeing how my own "narrative" is different from reality, sometimes reality was better, very often way worse!
I liked this challenge cause I would have probably never gone so far in reading Eddie's book. I have so many yoga books to read that I am just jumping from one to the other without any real consistency. Shame on me!
Thanks to @rodrigogabra to make me aware of the challenge and I hope to see you soon in the shala 😁
Thanks to all my friends liking my videos, I hope it was of inspiration to try an Ashtanga yoga class and thanks to @larugayoga@eddiestern@purplevalleyyoga for organising it and thinking about it.

The unused divine female energy/Shakti that when released leads to true enlightnment and emancipation is Kundalini. Represented as a serpent, coiled and în a state of rest at the base of the spine, it waits for the right time to ascend through the 7 chakras up to the 3rd eye and exploding to the crown. It can be a very powerful force as it reveals the true nature of of the divine and oneness with all. Kundalini can awaken by birth, by use of medicine or through Tapah, dedicated hard work.
Hatha yoga plays a very important role in awakening the spiritual energy. For that to happen, our body system need to function în harmony, like a well oiled macine. Hatha yoga actually means balance between the two principal forms of energy in the physical body: lunar energy(composite of knowing, thinking, reasoning, remembering, analyzing processes) and solar energy (movement, locomation, life). When there is harmony between the mental and pranic functions of the body, yoga becomes swift and smooth. These two energies in the psysical body should be known as mind and vitality. In modern terminology we call them the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous systems and they control the functioning of the entire body. A balance between the two results in the awakening of the higher energies.
Purple Valley Yoga Challenge 2019
Day 30. - the final day
Yoga Mudrasana : Psychic Union Pose
- a new pose I have never done. Another reason to do challenges. They provide exploration. I had to figure out modifications for myself. I struggle with hip mobility and anterior hip flexion. Those keep me from getting my legs into lotus pose. However, I am far and away better in flexibility than I was several years ago. I am going to add this pose into my home practice.
This was my second year of doing this challenge and I learned something, which is the goal. It provided me an opportunity to read the book “One Simple Thing” by Eddie Stern and super stoked that I did! It is a book that is full of knowledge and an amazing resource for a yoga student and yoga teacher. Without this yoga challenge I would not have been introduced to the book and a means to hold myself accountable to read and do self study.
Thanks again too, @purplevalleyyoga @larugayoga @eddiestern
☀️Day 29/30 #purplevalleyseptember2019 is #utpluthih
And reading about kriya yoga.
We have talked about the 5 kleshas, the veils that stand in the way of the true self and now we are exploring the practices that thin whose veils:
*tapas (self discipline-physical practice )
🤸🏻♀️Building strength and endurance through asana, pranayama and meditation *svadhyaya (self study-verbal and emotional practice) 🎶Chanting mantras
Music and rhythmicity of sounds are among the few things that affect whole brain function at the same time
*ishvara pranidhana (surrender to God/the unknown-mental and emotional practice)
🧘🏻Build into ishvara pranidhana is the sense of not knowing and not having to know or to figure it all out. It is ok to let things be and not to control everything. Here we could find more acceptance, become more receptive and more forgiving. ⚖️When these three aspects are balanced we experience whole brain coherence 🧠 we are in a state of connectivity, self knowing and total integration. It is the most relaxed state of being that we can experience on a conscious level, the state described as trancendence by yogis, nirvana by buddhists and rapture by the mystics⚖️ 'Life will always be filled with hardships and to be able to endure them patiently is a sign of a yogi'
“It doesn’t matter if you succeed at the pose, but it does matter that you try. The effort of trying teaches valuable lessons that can transform every aspect of your life” - Kino MacGregor
And that is only ONE thing yoga has given me on a daily basis. ❤️ no practice is perfect, no pose is easy, but what you learn about yourself is so much more important. #yoga#yogamom#yogaeveryday#asanapractice#halfprimary#ashtanga#utpluthih
✳"Atha yogānushāsanam" = "Ahora, este es el momento del yoga, el presente" ✳
La palabra Yoga significa integrar, unir ✳
La práctica te lleva a integrar la mente, el espíritu y el cuerpo. ✳
Te lleva al momento presente, a reconectarte con tu cuerpo, incrementa tu energía
Libera tu mente de la constante fluctuación de la conciencia, de pensamientos - ~"yogashchittavritti nirodhaha"~

Sé fuerte, levántate y mira hacia delante.
Nos caemos, nos levantamos y aprendemos. Hemos venido a vivir experiencias humanas, algunas duelen, otras te llenan, otras se van y algunas se quedan. Pero todas son experiencias para tu alma.
Todas nos ayudan a crecer y saber discernir lo que es bueno para nosotrxs, y lo que no.
El yoga a mí me ayuda a quitar el velo de la mente, a seguir caminado con pies firmes que me dan estabilidad y paz dentro de mí.
Practica de hoy echa y en un ratillo a compartir en clase. Nos vemos en la esterilla.
Feliz día 💚💚💚 Sigue caminando
Utpluthih also know as Tolasana is a calm and strong pose that requires both patience and perseverance to get it right.
It stretches the Arms, Thighs and Hamstrings. It also helps you to strengthen your arms, shoulders, abdomen, hips, back and wrists.
This asana creates a sense of balance and awareness in the body. The mind is relieved from stress and anxiety.
Good morning, Happy new week my lovelies, and welcome to .
Day 1 #TheFlyingYogis
Today we are doing Tolasana or for us Ashtangis, Utpluthi.
There is a bit of controversy around this beautiful arm balance.
Manju Patthabi Jois, has taken it out when teaching, saying after all the closing sequence postures to calm your mind, WHY, you will re start all the boost again?!
Well. Sorry Manju.
I dare, in my humbleness, disagree with you.
I think this posture is perfect exactly for doing that:
After the introspective asanas, you lift yourself up, full of energy and finish the sequence ready for whatever it comes.
How long do you hold?
10 long Ujjayi breaths - or, in Pattabhi Jois famous 1993 video, the students do it for 25 fast breaths.
Or - for as long as you wish!
Here my tips are:
“Hide the tail bone”, tucking the coccyx under, draw the pubic bone back, and draw the sitting bones together while activating mula bandha. Compress a bit the abs and think of your hips doing a scooping action.
There you are!
Fly and enjoy this amazing asana!

As the year comes to an end, it’s only natural to start reflecting on the past 12 months. 2018 would always hold a special place in my heart - it’s the year I got married to my soulmate, my first year experiencing the intimacy of a beautiful marriage, the first year (of many, I hope) that I got to teach yoga full time, and the year that gave me clarity on how I would continue teaching this practice that I love so much. I can’t help but feel full and blessed for both the ups and downs of 2018. And in hindsight, I wouldn’t change a single thing.
Based off what I have planned so far, 2019 is going to be very different from 2018! Knowing that, I’m looking forward to spending some quality time off for the last few days in the year.
So... with that being said, I’m going on a social-media-posting break for the rest of 2018. I’ll still be putting stuff up on my stories and in my personal (non yoga) account @simply_sunitha but I’m releasing myself off the pressure of posting yoga things for the rest of the year.
Have a great Christmas, Holiday and New Year! 😘

Welcome to Day 4 of #AyurvedaAndAgni 🔥
"As long as we are not living in harmony with nature and our constitution, we cannot expect ourselves to be really healed. Ayurveda gives us the means."
- David Frawley
As per Ayurveda, healthy eating is not supposed to be complicated or fancy. It should just be simple, seasonal, available locally and in tune with your Dosha.
What makes the preparation of food even more enjoyable and effective when it's made with loving energy and a good state of mind. Such foods have high prana and well absorbed by the body and mind 🧘♀️
So how can we make food choices basis our Dosha?
🌬️Diet for Vata:
▪️Keep it warm, soft, nourishing like stews, soups, porridges etc
▪️One-dish meals over a variety
▪️Vata doesn't have the best appetite or digestion, hence should eat without any distraction like talking, TV, reading etc
▪️ Tastes that balance Vata are sweet, heavy, sour, salty, oily, warm
▪️Vata should avoid foods that are pungent, astringent, cold, dry
▪️ Breakfast should be nourishing with a small meal for lunch and small snacks in intervals
▪️Should avoid eating when anxious, nervous, scared or in deep thought
. 🔥Diet for Pitta:
▪️They can digest raw foods very easily as they have a strong digestion
▪️Foods which are cooling, sweet, bitter, astringent, dry help their balance
▪️Avoid foods that are pungent, spicy, hot, sour, salty, oily
▪️ Breakfast should be light and lunch should be early and filling
▪️ Should avoid eating while angry & overworked
. 🌱 Diet for Kapha:
▪️Less quantity & frequency of meals
▪️Foods that balance Kapha are pungent, light, dry, hot, bitter, fibrous
▪️Foods that can cause an imbalance are sweet, heavy, sour, oily, salty
▪️Can skip breakfast or just keep it very light
▪️ Avoid late night binging
▪️ Should be mindful to not use food for emotional support
As per Ayurveda, we can never have a generalised diet for all alike. As it believes, each is unique with different needs- which may also need to be modified for changing seasons and for dual Dosha types.
Would love to know how you all go about with your diet! 😊
#utpluthih in led class is such a mindfuck. When I can hold the whole time I feel really good about myself and then afterwards someone inevitably says that ‘the count was really fast today!’ and it deflates me. Then on days when I barely try and just lift higher really quickly when the teacher looks at me I don’t feel good about myself but I don’t really feel bad about myself either because who cares and maybe that’s the better Yoga.
Big thanks to @blackcatyoga who gave me one very nice image that I then turned into an unflattering version of her struggling to stay up. You’re welcome. #donttellmehowtolive#youredoingitwrong
