Get Unstuck | Yoga With Dionne // Vinyasa flow
Life happens. We can get in our own way. Get ideas about who we think we are and what we can (and most often, can´t) do. Weighted by world events. Rightfully wanting to contribute and take action. And sometimes feel stuck and unsure. Mute in moments. Overwhelmed in others.
We are human.
And in these sticky times, the greatest intervention we can make, is to simply show up and remind ourselves that we are never stuck.
Even if we feel like we are.
So getting up, showing up, being present is so very radical.
Staying present, grounded and clear is how we maintain that (without burning out)
So this is for you my friends, who are continuing to push things forward, even though some days it can feel hard.
You have this.
We have this.
Let´s reconnect, keep things moving and continue to keep showing up.
You are never stuck.
Here´s a practice.
Feeling stuck and need to shift?
Whether you´re feeling some kind of way or just ready to remember who you are, this practice will help you reconnect to that power inside you - let´s call it “source” or “sauce” yeah? This will be a continuous movement practice where we tease out tension from sticky areas and find flow again.
Expect to charge up using your navel as your guide (3rd chakra vibes, the energetic centre of power, connecter of upper and lower physical body and booster of charge and pizzaz when you need a lift) and experiment with your centre of gravity through standing postures and arm balances. You´ll move the spine in all directions and rinse out any residue with standing, balancing and seated twists, and finish off with a soothing inversion flow.
Sound sandwiches are on me!
Also - happy birthday Brandy!
The breath is oh so powerful and has such a huge impact on the way we feel. It can transform a very anxious situation to something more calming (ever been annoyed by someone who tells you to "just breathe" when you´re stressed out? There´s good reason for it!)
I know, i know, a feed is overdue 🎶🍽. So how about some melodic soup for the soul? Need to rinse that winter residue? Sweep the layers of crust away? Revive chilly organs? I’ve got you!
Come vibe with me with these very danceable (even if i say so myself) very free-feeling selections. Take as regularly as you need for a healing musical tonic.
Feeling ruff? Horse? Or just a bit under the weather? What a rot!
For those of you going through a grotty period of lurgy, I thought I would collate and share some tips I use regularly, plus bonus treats.
Trigger warning of sexual abuse.
To any Survivors, please exercise caution and self care.
Spend less time with the critics (or worse, trying to please them!), and more on following your heart, your true essence and your passions, that´s what! In other words, let go of what they think.
A story about my journey to my first yoga class via some very nostalgic Y2K aesthetic. This is a transcript of I Feel For You podcast episode 27!
"you can't be in control of everything..."
It’s a busy time of year. Busy busy. Blah blah. This is the transcript to a minisode which is part of a series that i hope serves as a reminder or mindful loving squeeze to warm your cockles
and offer you support during the season. Cause you don’t have to do it all!
Need a pep up? Here’s some festive reads +resources! ❤️❄️
