bestyoga post today! by @hana_bladh . Before i begin I am very naturally INflexible. I follow many other beginner yogis, and I have realized that I have to work a little harder than most to increase the flexibility in my hamstrings, back, and hips. Just keep that in mind as you look at my photos and progress. You can accomplish anything with a dedicated practice! Hoping this post will motivate you Practise however much you can, when you can. Focus on, and be proud of what you do, rather than focusing on what you want to do.

is for everyone @lichellefisser contacted me last year because she had seen me doing so many one arm postures and she thought I might be able to help her. Today she came to practice and she did a full Primary Series (and then afterwards we shot these videos working on backbends, and towards Handstand and push-ups). Before she started I asked, do you do for sun salutations? She replied, same as before It was an inspiration to watch. As Lichelle chatted with us later what was most inspiring was her inner radiance and the light in her eyes. Later my wife, @deepikamehtayoga with tears in her eyes said, shows that we are not the body, we are the spirit Lichelle is a living example of that and I thank her for coming to teaxh me today - and I excited about her one arm Handstand journey!
Away from the exotic beaches, temples and spacious yoga shalas, sometimes practice looks like this - in the kitchenette of a hotel room. On busy teaching days like today, I sometimes do a maintenance practice, and when it comes to lower body flexibility then the front and middle splits give me the most bang for the buck. Isometric holds, PNF, ballistic, passive, active, and active assisted stretching techniques are all thrown into the mix as I continue the work to reduce the gap between my range of motion in the active and passive ranges.

In this day and age of modern postural yoga, one of the big questions that we need to ask as teachers, is what is the place of on adjustments Firstly, as asana teachers we are also placed in an ambiguous relationship with our students, as we may have become a role model for them, and are therefore in a position of responsibility and power on a psychological and emotional level, requiring something of us that is beyond the knowledge of asanas. This is perhaps the most difficult aspect of being a modern yoga teacher - particularly if your classes involve hands on adjustments, as the human body is a storehouse of emotional trigger points. As can be seen in this video there needs to be a lot of trust in order to go into these zones (by the way I was actually practicing when @martimegghi asked for this assist - hence I wasn wearing a shirt). Secondly, in terms of finding Yoga - steadiness and comfort - in asana, then there needs to be a balance of strength and flexibility. In order to be pain free, the student must have sufficient active flexibility and end range control. I know Martina well enough to know that she has both of these, and actually she could go much deeper than she has here, but I do not want to take her to her end range. Actually my goal is to get her to do this movement by herself. In the meantime, partner or teacher assisted adjustments like this, can help train the nervous system to understand the movement on a visceral level, and w
Here another one on the theme of assistingadjustments. Just as my own practice is continuously evolving and going through a process of exploration, experimentation and refinement - so too is my teaching style and the way I assist - as I draw from new experiences and influences. The assist is a good example of that. In the past I would more or less do the work of the student by them into the pose. But what I have found is that while this feels good for the student, it very rarely teaches them how to do it themselves. Working with my amazing wife @deepikamehtayoga is a good case in point. The time has come now where she is ready to this one, but there are many things going on in this movement, as she finds her way to gain more control of the balance so that she can then start to reach full control of her end range hip and spinal extension, combined with ankle (plantar) and knee flexion. With this approach and her dedication and hard work ethic I know she will be doing this alone in the not so distant future. Watch this space
