Arm balances that require dynamic flexibility are a perfect balance between strength and grace. In Koundinyasana the arms are the stable base and the twist is supported by a strong engagement of the core. This posture is named after the sage Koundinya, the only Vedic scholar to predict the Buddha's enlightenment. Photo by @eyecbeauty

Still flying high with @robinmartinyoga after the 2nd day of our partner yoga workshop!! This is officially my 500th post on IG and I couldn't be more thrilled with the AMAZING support and encouragement I have received from this great community of yogis that I can now call friends! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! 🙏❤️🙏💙🙏❤️🙏 #ARTyoga #yogawithTJ

#tittibhasana or #fireflypose for both the #yogaintentions and #inspiredyogis challenges!! Today my intention is to branch out of my comfort zone and be more willing to try new things!! I have always been afraid of what people thought of me and what their judgement would be. I still do to some extent, but for a while this fear prevented me from really being okay with who I am. If you are so wrapped up in worrying over what other people think about you, how can you form your own opinion?? I have loved dancing for as long as I can remember. It makes me feel free and powerful. But because of fear I have never even walked into a dance class, yet I practice ballet technique around my house constantly. WELL I finally decided to sign up for an adult ballet class!! 💃💃💃 I have wanted to do this for a long time and today I just took the leap and registered! I'm nervous and excited and that is half of the fun of life!! #skypemoments @gordonogden @patbailey @monkeymix @yulady @geraldsaluti @laurasykora @lizarch @kathy0805 @justinwolferyogi @mackenzieyoga @talia_sutra @skype

Kitsune doesn't care if I'm busy. ☺️ #springupyogis @dms_yoga @northcarolina_yogagirl #staylight #shibaplay

Day 22 #inspiredyogis Dwi Hasta Padasana Another "that looks easier than it is pose". Listen to your body and if this is not in your practice take it easy. If you need a modification stand with thigh parallel to the ground and the lifted knee bent... There's a lot going on here, keep your core engaged, standing leg solid and if you need further instruction pls check yogajournal.com Photo Tip: There's little editing here but with the typography included I thought it looked better with me on the right instead of left. In this weeks featured app PicsArt you can easily flip a photo vertical or in this case horizontal putting me on the right. Watch any of the #yogilovebombs @patbailey @monkeymix or myself for Day 23. Happy weekend yogis! XOXO! ❤️💣❤️💣 #yogawithgordon

Sunrise headstand for Day 13 #omwithmeig Happy Friday yogis!

One of the most amazing experiences that a yoga teacher can have is to watch their student follow the deeper path. It's a honor to share this sacred tradition with so many people, but a true blessing to share it with a kindred soul that will follow and perhaps go past your footsteps along the path. I still remember when @day1yoga was in my workshop for the first time. It's been my pleasure to be a teacher to her as she's been to Mysore three times, is Level 2 Authorized, teaching a rockin Mysore program @miamilifecenter and carrying the message of Ashtanga Yoga with integrity in the world. In case you're wondering it's me in Tittibhasana and Daylene in Kapotasana 😊 Awesome photo by @eyecbeauty My clothes by the ever so stylish @elisabettarogiani

#vasisthasana for the #yogaintentions #skypemoments Today my intention is to listen to my body and rest when I need to rest. I have the tendency to push myself to the limits and can easily go too far. With that, I'm off to take a nap! @yulady @geraldsaluti @lizarch @justinwolferyogi @laurasykora @talia_sutra @mackenzieyoga @kathy0805 @skype

Just a #fun little #toetouch medley

Just a #fun little #toetouch medley. I started really working these #stength and #balance builders a few months back. Though they were super hard at first, they definitely have helped me in every area of my practice. It’s all about descending the femurs up into the hip sockets and utilizing your #bandhas. Has anyone else been working them? Gonna start? Tag me and show how me your progress👍☺️ - @phelpshair- #webstagram

Day 28 - Seated Meditation for #feelthelovefebruary where else better to sit in peace than by the the sea, I love going down to the beach to clear my head to the soothing sounds of the waves, happy to have partaken in this challenge and to the people who follow to see my challenge photos I plan to next month take on 2 challenges and I hope not to miss a day ;) peace and namaste all! @woodywoodrow @carsonclaycalhoun @tinabock @lamise #yoga #yogi #smile #spreadtheyogasmile #yogasmile #stretch #strength #asana #fit #fitness #workout #yogamen #yogadudes #meditate #meditation #beach #outdooryoga #sit #peace

#TBT Throwin' it back to the first day @robinmartinyoga and I played together. We had worked together in class a couple of times, but never anything regular (I had an established partnership with Tracy @agirlwithadog) and neither one of us knew what to expect. We both had a solid #acroyoga practice and I was just beginning my 'normal' yoga journey. I'm so glad we were able to make such a strong connection which continues to grow! #ARTyoga #yogawithTJ

"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding."~Khalil Gibran This is dedicated to my badass IGyoga and climbing brotha @geraldsaluti - although we are both understanding the pain and lessons of our wrists YOU continue to inspire me. Thank You.🙏 We will be back at 100+% soon. Lesson: Must. Warm-up. Wrists. 👊😃 #yogilovebombs #yogawithgordon

Finding trust and balance at sunset with @agirlwithadog 🌟🙏❤️🙏🌟 #yogawithTJ #acroyoga #vartafitness
