I love yoga! I teach circus but yoga has followed me through the past 7 years - generally moving makes me happy.I run, I tumble, I love the trampoline and being upside down! This is my journey to lower blood pressure and striving for a bit of inner peace.
Just another yoga pose #yoga #yogapose #yogabytgebeach #happydays
So does yoga count for strength training?
it can, especially ashtanga or vinyasa is about carrying your own weight so it’s great for “trimming” muscles, but it’s a difficult way of getting a body-builder-body. Through the balancing exercises you get to train core and stability a lot.
could you please tell us more about your misplaced disk if it's not too personal? I'm curious because I have a "herniated" disk and I'm wondering if it's similar?
displaced is almost the same as herniated (as far as I know) but the difference is that mine is “post surgery” which means that they cut out the part that’s bulging out and bothering the nerves which is where the pain comes from. I deeply regret doing this surgery, as I’ve lost a lot of mobility in my back since there’s more scar tissue between my spine than disc. I was young and very illy advised, also I was fighting to become a professional artist and just wanted the pain to go away and go back to dancing. I have later met lots of people and methods that can help you out without surgery and you get to keep your mobility. This is 4 years ago and I wake up almost every morning with some degree of pain. I cannot stop moving though and the pain is not greater than my dream. When it is - I’ll dream bigger :) ( I now work as a professional artist, performing in theaters, teaching professionally, doing backbends daily) Please ask me anything else you can think of and please don’t do surgery. Lots of love and light
So much backbend love today! #enjulyyourpractice #yoga @yogipeachs this is mimi’s instagram! <3 to u

Catching up once again with wonderful yogi peach yoga challenge. These are all lefties which is usually my weaker and less flexible side, but vanity is not a virtue I am looking for these days :) lots of love
These are the seven headstands from Ashtanga yoga’s second series. It’s still a working progress but being able to balance in all of them is a victory for me… I’ll be critical of myself another day. Today I’m so proud to be doing this!
My friend and former student Maria doing a craaaazy cool handstand!! And she can stay there forever.. it really inspires me to practice more (then I go eat something or lie on the couch :)
