Today’s post is not about me. It’s about some amazing Yoginis who are my inspiration and motivation. I follow them on Instagram and they are living proof that nothing’s impossible if you have the courage and will to reach your goals. The first thing I do every morning is to check my Instagram feed, and as I scroll through each picture, and read their words, I know that this day is not going to to be waste, that there’s a goal that I have to meet. It’s challenging and yet it keeps me upbeat the whole day.

When I saw her doing a stunning handstand flow, at 39 weeks pregnant, I was literally gaping at my screen. I didn’t even know that it was possible. She is a total roackstar. And she recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. She broke every misconception that I had about pregnancy and things that you can or cannot do.

She was diagonised with Fibromyalgia, disc herniation, neck degeneration and sciatica. You think that would stop her huh. But she started her Yoga journey at the age of 27. A look at her IG feed will leave you amazed. I take inspiration from her strength and her resolve to be positive and fit.
There are some things in life that can’t be explained. Only felt with the heart. Allow yourself to feel … Try not to explain or rationalize every thought. Some things require faith which can’t be rationalized or even logical at times. This for me this is where true spiritual power resides … In faith. Have faith and don’t give up… Just believe. 🙏#faith #believe Photo taken on the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas @lighthousebahamas @inlovewithbeachyogagirl

Day 28 #JourneytoHandstand is Hollowback. This pose is one that just didn’t make any sense to me until I realized that it s a counterbalance. As you send the chest and hips in opposite directions they balance eachother. Keep the lower belly drawn in and the pelvic floor engaged while allowing the shoulders to stabilize and open at the same time. Use a wall for support if you need. Check @beachyogagirl for another option. Outfit by @aloyoga check their account for weekly winners. Video by @ifilmyoga
