Time Machine Video of the Week

Massive Attack - Unfinished Sympathy (1990)

I know that I’ve been mad in love before
And how it could be with you
Really hurt me baby, really hurt me baby
How can have a day without a night
You’re the book that I have opened
And now I’ve got to know much more

The curiousness of your potential kiss
Has got my mind and body aching
Really hurt me baby, really hurt me baby
How can you have a day without a night
You’re the book that I have opened
And now I’ve got to know much more

[Repeat: x4]
Like a soul without a mind
In a body without a heart
I’m missing every part

Filed under THE BEST I love her so much and this song ugh lol i had it on repeat during my yoga pracitce

Day Twenty Four—April 24th—Utkatasana variation

This is half chair, transitioned to warrior III (again with the leg that feels straight but isn’t), to half moon, to sugarcane.

I remember when I was in college I took a yoga course for credit (seriously), and prior to that I had not dabbled in very much yoga. I was mostly a pilates gal because I found the static postures of yoga to be extremely challenging. So, in one of the first classes of the semester my instructor described transitioning from warrior II into half moon. I laughed. “This pose is not possible,” I chided to myself. Every time I go into half moon pose, I remember that first time that I thought my instructor was nuts to believe anyone could do this pose.



My intention today is to be fearless.

April Intentions transitions! Here is the Half chair pose with transition to Warrior III and half moon. I would probably hold each of these just a little longer in a regular yoga practice (this was just for the video). I don’t know why my hair has a goofy bump in it. I need a haircut!

A great transition to add to a vinyasa flow. Many thanks to sassyyogi! <3

#AprilIntentions Day 24 (hosted by me!): Half chair pose → Warrior III → Half moon pose

This is the first time I took a video of myself in a simple sequence that really helps to work your leg muscles, train your balance and your focus. Looking at the dhristi point will really help you balance!

Half chair pose

  • Sit down deep into your half chair, and make sure that you can still see your toes when you’re squatting down so you make sure your knee doesn’t pop out too much
  • You will feel a nice pinching sensation in your hips, try to go as low as you can without losing your balance, but try not to go over 90 degrees.
  • Press your biceps close to your ears and feel the opening in your chest and shoulders
  • Try not to bend your back too much - lean back as much as you can as if you are sitting on a chair.

Warrior III

  • Continue to open up your chest towards the ground, and press your biceps on your head
  • Shift your gaze towards the front of your mat
  • Keep your back leg engaged by flexing your foot
  • Point your toes towards the ground and that will keep your hips square towards the ground (and not splayed out towards the side)

Half moon pose

  • Place your hand diagonally away from your foot to help in your balance
  • If flexibility is an issue in your half moon, get a yoga block to prop your hands! If you don’t have a yoga block, use a thick book <: 
  • Place your top hand on your hips first, and then slowly shift your weight such that your hip is gradually opening towards the side 
  • Once you feel stable, slowly reach your top hand towards the sky and use that as a leverage to open your chest further to the side.
  • Keep breathing!

This is one of my regular sequence in my yoga practice, and easily works my balance, create that burn in my legs, and gets my heart rate going <: Definitely something that you can incorporate into your flow.

I hope you guys liked today’s sequence! <: <: Let us know how it goes for you! xx
