Ter um bom condicionamento físico é vital na prática desportiva, e ficar atento a respiração e ao papel do oxigênio é essencial para se obter um melhor desempenho. Respirar corretamente pode fazer toda a diferença para o sucesso da prática, e ter consciência da respiração pode ser traduzido em melhorias na qualidade de vida. E apesar de não nos mantermos atentos a nossa respiração ao longo do dia, em uma prática de Yoga, somos convidados a respirar de forma consciente durante toda a aula. E o processo de respirar, inspiração e expiração, é traduzido em energia, tranquilidade mental, concentração e aumento da absorção de oxigênio.
O VO2 máximo é o índice que determina a quantidade máxima que uma pessoa consegue consumir de oxigênio durante a atividade física, ou seja, quanto maior a captação (armazenamento) de oxigênio pelo organismo melhor o desempenho físico. Este índice leva em conta a eficiência bioquímica individual em relação aos sistemas pulmonar, cardíaco e circulatório, pois cada organismo possui uma quantidade particular de armazenamento de oxigênio. É reconhecido pela sua capacidade de determinar o quanto um atleta está capacitado e preparado para manter-se (tempo) executando atividades aeróbicas.
On my way to teach tonight, a friend remarked that I am always happy when I’m going to Life Time. And it’s true! Through hell and high water, Life Time has become a home, filled with love, community, and a even quiet space to practice after I teach. .

HAVE YOU HEARD PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT MERCURY RETROGRADE RECENTLY?
Maybe someone you know is attributing something that is happening in their life to this planetary shift.
And perhaps they would be right to.
We are mid Mercury Retrograde (7th July - 31st July). In astrology, Mercury rules communication. And when it is in retrograde, areas of our lives used for communication can go a little crazy.
During this 3-week period, it is advised to be mindful of any areas of life that are governed by communication.
Emails and Social Media
In my latest BLOG post I write about this planetary movement, what to expect, how to prepare and respond.
This a really wonderful time to practise slowing down, observing what is happening without judging and being mindful in each moment.
“Sometimes you have to let life turn you upside down, so you can learn to live, right side up.” Idk who said this but it’s true. As I continue with my inversion practice, I realize my biggest challenge is getting past the resistance to being in an uncomfortable position. I have the strength... I don’t have to have a wall or a tree or a lifeguard tower behind me... but when I get my feet up I panic because I fear getting hurt. Isn’t that pretty much true for all our limiting beliefs... we get to the “almost there” and the pow 💥 fear rears its ugly head and screams “STOP YOU’RE GOING TO GET HURT!” And hurt can show up in many forms... embarrassment, failure, being seen or exposed, etc... and because we believe that panicked voice we stop and retreat... well, getting over the fear takes practice. It takes pushing yourself, doing hard things, and showing up for yourself daily. But being judgey and overly critical of yourself will set you back further, so don’t do that. Instead, push yourself a little more each day and soon your fear will be a distant memory and you’ll realize you’re a badass and you’ve always been a badass. Also, doing scary things with your favorite fur friend makes it more fun 🐶. #yoga#yogateacher#learnyoga#overcomingobstacles#inversion#dogyoga#tuesdaymotivation#tuesdaythoughts#natureyoga#selflove#selfcare#blogger#instablog

Mirror Me! .
We did the Art theme in Super Kids Camp today!
Kids painted their entire home and body with imaginary colorful paint (singing n acting out the song “I ain’t gonna paint no more!”) and felt like super pieces of art. Then we each took turns leading the ‘display’ of the art exhibits (showing off 😎)
This sounds like a simple concept, but it took me 36 years to start to embrace it. I’m 6ft tall and don’t often feel comfortable with the amount of space I take up, but that’s starting to change.
Growing up I often encountered comments about my body. Not from people close to me. My family has always been very body positive! But from people outside our family. Many years of being teased about how thin I was, how tall I was or the lack of boobs I had (that really changed 😆) but all those words, in addition to what society taught me, left me feeling too big, too much, too masculine - because of my size. I always wanted to be just a *little* bit smaller. I was constantly striving to take up less space. I was often apologizing for the space I did take up. Poking fun at myself or being self deprecating because I felt different.
My height was kind of a lost cause. I slouched a lot but there isn’t many other strategies for getting shorter. So, I obsessed about my weight. Always striving to get just a little bit smaller. And in all honesty, I still do at times, but I am learning to do it less. I’m learning to be more accepting of me!
Times are changing. The #bodypositive movement is impacting people and I definitely am feeling the positive shift! I was in class today at @the_energy_barre and was surrounded by beautiful people of all sizes - many of which were just wearing sports bras. We were moving and flowing and I felt so at peace with the space I was taking up. I didn’t try to hide or make myself feel smaller. I embraced myself, flowed and felt a little more connected and comfortable in my body. That’s what yoga can do ❤️ that’s what supportive communities can achieve. We are growing. We are getting better. The future is going to be brighter for our kids.
I’m so excited about collaborating with these two inspiring and talented people. It’s going to be a weekend to remember, full of yoga, creativity, and community. I’m feeling very inspired from my trip to the USA and can’t wait to share all of this energy and vibes. If you want to learn more or reserve a space slide into my DMs or just follow the Link in bio.
Today my friend @kriley78 was giving me a compliment as a yoga teacher and I immediately tried to deny and minimize it. She looked me in the eye and said: "Don't you negate my compliment! When I give you a compliment you say thank you!" THANK YOU KATIE, for the important lesson and for always believing in me from the beginning. 🙏🏼
Yes it's hard for me to accept compliments, to look at myself and see someone strong, capable, and talented. I'm learning that self-appreciation is a skill, that I actually need to practice it. Self-deprecation is NOT humility, it's a sign of weak self-esteem.
So as I splatter my image across your feed, understand that it's only a TEENY bit of vanity (welcome to #leoseason 🤣). It's "self-appreciation practice"... Yeah like that term won't be abused. 😆
Thanks also to @yogasparkstudio where everyone has made me feel like a star from Day 1! 🙌🏼 So grateful.

As with your Yoga practice, life is a practice. An intricate web of tools, discipline, discomfort, perseverance and so on but it is a gift nonetheless. Be dedicated to your practice and see the benefits unfold before you ✨
how does it get better than this?✨
even with the weirdness that is mercury in retrograde currently, (so far I spilled hot coffee all over myself & my car got egged...can we not?!), I can’t help but feel excited about the future.
ask the universe: how does it get better than this? the universe loves to show up & show out, and by asking a question, especially one this powerful, you show you are open to receive. good things are right around the corner!
When I did my first Hatha yoga class at 19, I hated it. Too slow, too boring, not enough physical action for me.
I was (and am) a “fast twitch” girl who liked my exercise hard and fast. Anyone else out there like me?
Then I started Ashtanga about 12 years later and fell in love. It was so intense that first class had me soaking in Epsom salts for 3 days! I was hooked
Years on, and 3 yoga accreditation’s later, I have tried many styles but found my own with Knoff. It gives me everything I want NOW and I realise that could change again. I practice on my own and attend a Bikram twice a week as a moving meditation
The point of my post is really to say that yoga is for ANYone, you just have to find your style.
I wouldn’t be who I am today without yoga and I do feel it has been my secret weapon to health, wellbeing, and timelessness.
So get out there and try it. Try several styles and then the one that works best for you. Try on different teachers too as it is a living art and constantly changes as are we.

Natarajasana, or dancer pose comes from the Sanskrit nata, meaning "dancer," raja, meaning "king," and asana, meaning "pose". Sometimes it is also called ‘lord of the dance pose’.
Natarajasana improves balance and focus; strengthens the legs, hips, ankles, and chest.
Dharma Yoga es una interpretación moderna de las 8 ramas del yoga o Hatha Raja Yoga, enraizado en los preceptos éticos; también incluye elementos de Vinyasa flow, inversiones, y posturas estáticas que fomentan la concentración, meditación, contentamiento y relajación profunda. Dharma Yoga fue creado por Sri Dharma Mittra en 1975.
Actualmente, Sri Dharma Mittra sigue enseñando diariamente en NY y internacionalmente; así como también sigue formando maestros compartiendo su sabiduría en los entrenamientos LOAY Life of a Yogi (200/ 500/ 800/ 700-1000), en Dharma Yoga Center NY.
La parte física del Dharma Yoga (asana) tonifica y energiza el cuerpo y mente, aumenta la flexibilidad, fuerza, balance y concentración. Los ejercicios de respiración -Pranayama- y técnicas meditativas regulan el ritmo cardiaco, alivian el estrés del sistema nervioso y calman la mente. La relajación profunda y el Yoga Nidra ayudan a eliminar el estrés, calmar la mente, y recargar el cuerpo físico.
Dharma yoga es un sistema tradicional, pero contemporáneo a la vez, perfecto para la vida moderna. Una practica integral que ayuda a mejorar la salud y llevar una vida llena de paz.

Las torsiones son asanas que se caracterizan por girar el tronco sobre un eje, mientras mantienes la cadera estable. Puede realizarse de varias posiciones, de pie, supino (acostado), invertidas, en rodillas, o sentado. Estas posturas masajean los órganos abdominales, fortalecen la columna y ayudan a equilibrar el sistema nervioso. Las torsiones se caracterizan por mantener la base firme, alargar, y torcer (nivel: ombligo, abdomen, costillas, pecho y hombros.) Una de las áreas más estimuladas durante la torsión es el abdomen, este es afectado mejorando el movimiento de los intestinos, y por lo tanto la digestión. Realizar torsiones primero a la derecha estimula directamente el colon, facilitando la digestion. También son estimulados el hígado, pancreas y bazo, activando los procesos depurativos.
En el linaje de Dharma Yoga, comenzamos las torsiones por el lado derecho, por el colon ascendente, y terminamos por el izquierdo, por el colon descendente.
Las torsiones mejoran la flexibilidad del diafragma y alivian trastornos de la columna vertebral, de caderas e inguinales. La columna se vuelve más flexible, ya que las articulaciones vertebrales adquieren mayor elasticidad, restaurando movilidad.
Los músculos vertebrales también se benefician; estos músculos tienden a la anquilosis o endurecimiento por falta de ejercicio y/o edad avanzada. Pero con una practica continua podemos seguir flexibles por un largo tiempo.

Can’t we all take that big step
Off of our pedestals
Put down the measuring sticks
Arguing whose stands the tallest.
Meet on the ground,
Weapons down; living an engaged life with hands wide open.
And me, too.
We have all hurt and been hurt by the hands of another.
None of us are entirely innocent, and none of us are entirely guilty either.
Those who have left the deepest scars on the people they love have also got a tender touch at times.
And that’s the complicated thing about it
There’s no human out there that’s all good or all bad
We are complex
Just trying to be seen.

How do you strengthen your inner voice? 🌞
Learning to trust my intuition and access my higher self has transformed my life.
Here are some things that I do:
1. Move my body! 💃🏽 Our body has so much wisdom that we can only access by dancing, shaking, sweating, doing yoga, running and being active.
2. WRITE. ✍🏽 Every day I write for 15-30 minutes about anything. Sometimes it’s absolute drivel and other times I have breakthrough moments. Any dreams or WILD goals you have, write them down.
3. Pay attention to what brings you joy. 🥰 For me that’s working from home, being with Ali, my closest friends, working out and teaching yoga and meditation to my clients. The things you are drawn to are tied to our deeper purpose.
These pictures were taken from the 3-Day Retreat I hosted a month ago now. Creating that community and space was an absolute dream 🌗

In January, I was preparing to give a talk at the lululemon Leadership Summit. In a meeting to discuss my topic with some of their team, they simply asked, “What are you uniquely qualified to offer?” That line has stuck with me long after deciding on my topic.
As a yoga teacher, as a college student, as someone with an online presence, there can be pressure to do everything.
For awhile folks were asking me why I didn’t post more about alignment, about the physical asana. It was a moment where I had to ask: what am I uniquely qualified to offer?
Do I know how to safely guide my students through an asana practice? Yes, that’s in my job description.
But my unique ability is to share how this practice can be used as a healing modality beyond the physical, how it’s empowered me to be of service, and how it fosters growth immeasurable by advancement in postures.
And somewhere out there, there’s a yoga teacher who is uniquely qualified to offer powerful anatomy insights. Who has their own unique “why” that makes sharing that information impactful and purposeful to THEM. And because of that, it will resonate with their community in a way that would be impossible without a teacher who is tapped into that special purpose.
There’s something powerful about embracing the idea that we are allowed to hone our craft without being pulled in a million directions. Is it good to expand our skill set and be open to new things? Certainly. But it’s also powerful to tap into the gifts that only we have: because we’re all different, we all have different things that light us up, and we’ve all experienced the world differently.
Ask: What are you uniquely qualified to offer? What has the universe placed on your path that has made you, you? What is a perspective only you have?
You do not need to act or be like anyone else to be a powerful force. We can look to others as our inspirations, but the sooner we’re able to step out of imitation and into inner purpose, the sooner we enter full bloom.
And from my own experience, nothing feels sweeter than being unapologetically yourself and seeing just how big of an impact that action alone can have.
It's not about the circumstances we are given, it's about the way we deal with them. Do you see yourself as a victim or as someone faced with challenges and problems to solve?
We are conditioned to feel helpless, partly because we are conditioned to not acknowledge that our circumstances and feelings sometimes simply suck. Acknowledgment is key but so too is recognizing that we always have choice; we are powerful. We can choose make the best of whatever we are given and to focus on what we do have... Including the ability to be problem solvers; solution seekers.
This isn't a post saying to always be positive. Frankly I think that is bullsh*t. We can't control the world around us and "manifest" all we hope for, but we can control our minds and how we respond to what we do have. Empower yourself to create solutions and contentment through the process.
Yoga Method- intelligent and creative ways to sequence towards peak postures. This week: a variety of miniature vinyasas using a strap to support each posture. When used in a specific way, the strap serves as a container for the body. It can hold you up, it can help you lift and it allows you to float. It’s like an extra limb that allows you access to poses that are hard to reach on your own. #navasana #downdog #handstand
