Reluctantly Crouched

Maybe you know the cake lyric… maybe you dont.   In case you dont:

A while ago I had this blog called Sausy Blue (yes, typo. I know); but the focus was on the Socio-political ramblings that I was prone to in my late teens and early 20s. It wasn’t really relevant and never truly did anything for me. But lately I’ve had the urge… the twitch in the tips of my fingers… if you’re a blogger than you know the one.

So I set it up and lets see where this whole thing goes. Maybe I’ll just be “haunted by something I cannot define“.

Not gana lie... that felt heavy 😅 (scroll to see my exit face) . . One thing consistent training has taught me: work through sh*t. Things will get hard, they'll feel weird, you won't understand it - keep going. Explore the challenge. Hunt for someone who's handled something similar and learn from them. I'd be nowhere without the support of my mentors and friends who I learn from constantly. 😘 . . . This was Day 1 of phase 2 of my summer prep program. Phase 2 is all volume work... I'm already tired! . . #girlswholift #fitchick #teameqx #eqxgreenwichave #staywild #gypsychild #rdl #deadlift #deadliftsaresexy #thickthighs #thickthighssavelives #legsfordays #liftspiration #fitpro
Are you getting wrist pain during yoga? Struggling with your hand balancing asanas? ....are you warming up your wrists well?.. 🤔 😱 We spend time warming up our hips and shoulders, but neglect our poor wrists!! Here's are 5 quick wrist warm ups... I suggest trying Crow, doing this sequence, and then do Crow again to feel the difference! .. 💁‍♀️ . ➡️with fingers toward you and the back of your handss on the mat, sit back and stretch your wrist one way. . . ➡️with fingers toward you put your palms on the mat, sit back, and stretch your wrist the other way . . ➡️roll your wrists in circles on the floor . . ➡️interlace your fingers behind your back and press your palms towards the floor . . ➡️reach one hand forward and stretch with the other hand. First palm up, then palm down. Repeat on the other side. . . How's that Crow Pose feel now? Lmk in the comments if it helped your handstand or if theres anything else you do to warm up your wrists 🤗 . . #yoga #yogatips #yogatipsforbeginners #stretch #warmup #fitness #wellness #coaching #wellnesscoach #curlyhairdontcare #thickthighssavelives #thickthighs #bighair #alignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyoga #lunayoga #stretching

So much of life is in how we transition. In if we allow ourselves a process, get stuck, or judge ourselves in moments of deep change. If we can find calm in our storms and not cling as things slip past us. - - - I've been home from Koh Phanang, Thailand for 4 days & mostly sleeping. This beautiful trip rocked me and my soul. I've come back with clarified questions and a fire inside, ready for the exciting changes to come. - - - Has something ignited your fire recently? What changes are on your horizon that you're hoping to rise to?

Travel is a huge challenge for #spoonies - for those with hEDS it's a shock to the nervous system and a real struggle. I'm only 1/3 of the way into my 40 hour haul from Thailand to New York and was already starting to feel the effects of the flight. Dizzy, nauseous, disoriented. What's a #zebra to do? . . . I applied all I've learned the last month with @luna_alignment_yoga of course! If my nervous system is the problem, what if I use movement to help? First I got a massage and took a shower, because that always helps. Then I combined @yogigypsynomad and my finals her use of #sunsalutation to stimulate the autonomic nervous system, and then I added some more forward folds and gentle twists to calm it back down. Finished up with 7 min of pranayama to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. . . The result? I'm hungry! When those with hEDS fly we experience gastroparesis - a stalled digestive system. Thats why the nausea. Being hungry means the practice worked! Any spoonies out there who want to know more DM me. . . What do you think @talswissa is that intelligent practice? Would Anu be proud? 😉 . . . #movementismymedicine #spoonievictory #spooniewarrior #myillnessdoesnotdefineme #yogaeverywhere #lunaalignmentyoga #alignmentyoga #alignmentfirst #trainsmarter #selfcare #selfcareisselflove #learningtolovemyself #hEDS #EhlersDanlos #EhlersDanlosSyndromes
