My housemate pointed at the cover of a magazine the other day, where a girl was doing the full #dancerpose and he asked me

My housemate pointed at the cover of a magazine the other day, where a girl was doing the full #dancerpose and he asked me " WHY IS IT ACTUALLY NECESSARY TO BE THAT FLEXIBLE? " and I said : " That's not a necessity, that's just the byproduct" It's really hard to answer the question : WHY would anyone NEED to be able to go into any position full on and be super flexible ?! I mean he didn't just talk about Yoga, he was talking about contortion, gymnastics etc I was thinking about it a long time, because I couldn't answer that right away. I can only answer for Yogis: we have this picture in our head about how a pose should look like and sometimes you forget that's not what it's all about. It's not about the look of the pose, but we tend to forget that, especially those amongst us, that use IG a lot and see so many great yogis in this little app. You don't have to be flexible for Yoga, you become flexible through it. If you see anyone doing a yogapose in the fullversion, it's because they're practising for many many years and they usually feel the sensations in fuller versions. My housemate never tried any kind of Yoga so far, that's why he isn't at the point of understanding what it means TO FEEL SENSATIONS. Every pose has their benefits, and that's why we don't just bend in one direction, we always go into a counterpose afterwards. it’s important to think of yoga as malleable to your life and who you are. You practise in your own pace and time and maybe your version of any asana is the best, because it's simply yours and there's no need to compare. So basically the question shouldn't be why do you need to be flexible for anything. It's a question of determination and it's your own decision how far you wanna go with your practise and there's no need to fullfill any picture 🧘🏼‍♀️ ...

“There’s a thin woman buried inside of you waiting to come out.” A motivational phrase that many of us have heard during workout videos or with trainers or from concerned doctors or friends who desperately want to see us “win”. It was a quote I lived by. The body that carried all the rolls and weight wasn’t me. I was a thin girl underneath all that. That person was better than me and prettier. She had self-control. 
That version of myself was the one I fixated on, neglecting my real self quite often for her. As the pounds started to be less, I was one step closer to being that girl. And, I wanted to be that girl so bad. In my mind, I created her narrative and I designed her body to be the exact way I always dreamt of a body looking like. Tiny waist with no rolls or marks. Perky breasts and little arms that could fit into any jacket in the store. 
As my body looked less and less like the thin girl I dreamt of, I punished myself in many ways. 
There is no thin girl inside of me waiting to emerge. There is only me. The me now. 
That phrase is a lie. It tells us that the us—the us now—isn’t worthy until we become someone totally different than ourselves. 
I always tell y’all that my body positive journey began when I asked myself: what would happen if you stopped hating yourself, your body and began living the best life you could in the body you have right now and not the body you could have in the future or the body you had in the past? 
What does that phrase mean to you? What’s your body journey been like? Good or bad, maybe in the middle? All bodies chime in. Let’s chat. 📷 @victoriakaempfe

This “hair-wheel” is my second favorite pose after the king dancer pose, because of its mysterious aspect... Do you have any favorite pose and why?
When my cat saw me on the street he was like: what the hell is she doing ? 😹🙀

First time ever at a yoga class was when I was 16 years old. It was a nice stretch but nothing more.. A few years later I got more and more dragged into the spiritual side of yoga and when I was 25 I attended my first Jivamukti yoga class and I fell in love 💞 I travelled to Thailand for a yoga retreat and then Spain for Yoga Teacher Training and got certified 🧘🏻‍♀️ I’ve attended yoga classes all over the world and hoping for even more studios to visit. Now yoga is much more than playing around with pincha or stretching out my gluts. Its a way of life, a path to happiness and inner peace 😌🙏🏻. Im so at ease after a yoga class and I find a lot of inspiration in the scriptures. Vedanta and yoga has become my true love <3 .

These things are great but it is not what makes you spiritual. There is no one way to get connected and grow spiritually.

Do you want to know a crazy thing that just happened to me? ✨
I was always afraid of backbends. I just didn’t feel capable of it. Everytime I tried to deepen my wheel I felt pain. I’ve been still practicing it but not regulary. So 3 weeks ago I attended my second Vipassana in Germany. If you’ve never heard about Vipassana, it’s a 10 day meditation course. I think I’ll share more about it in my next post. At the Vipassana course you’re not allowed to speak or do any physical exercises. You also have to sit most of the hours you’re awake to meditate. It’s a intense course but absolutly worth it to get a great inside of yourself. So as I came back home I was so excited to get finally back on my mat even though I had in mind that I probably lost lots of my flexibilitly and strength. And here’s the crazy thing: it was/is the opposit. As I got on my mat and realized that I’ve never been so flexible. I’ve never been so relaxed in my practice. My chest feels so open and I can easly enter Asanas I couldn’t before. This really proves me that everything happens in the mind. At the end we decide who we want to be. And having a pretty relaxed mind means to have a relaxed body. Right now my yoga practice becomes more and more my meditation and I couldn’t be happier about it. 
I wish you a lovely day ❤🌻 #yoga #yogi #yogaflow #yogaliebe #yogalover #yogalifestyle #yogalife #yogalove #yogainspiration #instayoga #inspiration #inspired #love #meditate #meditation #vipassana #vipassanameditation #light #spreadlove.

Lately, I have been meeting more and more people who say, “I would love to try yoga but I am not flexible.” Or, I hear them say things like, “My Doctor said I should try Yoga but I am afraid of getting hurt.” And, twenty years ago when I first started teaching I could confidently assure people that they did not have to be either “flexible” or “worried about getting hurt.” There used to be a very clear line between club fitness and yoga. And, all Yoga was therapeutic and spiritual and not just for aesthetics. But that line no longer exists as more and more corporations are applying the same industry standards that fitness clubs have always used of marketing with “sexy” ads and counting on mass attrition within thirty days of signing up for a gym membership. According to an IHRSA 2013 report the average retention rate for gym memberships is 66%. Basically, 34% of people who buy a membership will not even use the gym after thirty days of purchase. The savvy business minds know this and they have used the same approach in all of the new corporate Yoga facilities popping up. Small-heart-Centered business owners are having a harder time than ever to compete with a 24 hour yoga studio that has classes every hour on the hour. My dilemma is I actually love a lot of the new corporate yoga spots... I know exactly what I will get when I go in and I can count on a sweaty flow but I won’t recommend them to a beginner Yogi or anyone looking to alleviate stress. Because anything that is flowing without a steady foundation is going to lead to injury. Always start with a foundation class first. Go to a small-heart-centered studio where they want you to come back every time and where they aren’t leading you through a cookie-cutter-flow. Learn the basics. Then, explore the flashy trends if you like. DM me if you want to learn safe yoga..
