How to do a push up? Ashtanga Namaskar (Part 1 Knee Variation)



How to do a push up? (Ashtanga Namaskar)

DO not confuse an ‘ashtanga namaskar’ with an Ashtanga SURYA namaskar. TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS!
In Ashtanga Namaskar our limbs EIGHT limbs are bowing down (chest and chin included) and touching the floor.

If you wan to work on strength in the shoulders you can start by doing this. MAKE SURE YOUR ELBOWS ARE IN towards each other. And your chin and weight of the upper body always MOVES FORWARD AND DOWN as opposed to only down. YOU ALWAYS EXHALE AND GO DOWN!(No, that’s not what she said :P) When you are comfortable with this you can to the next level.

when comfortable you can take the CHEST AND CHIN OFF the floor so the weight will be on you arms and shoulders. when thios is comfortable you can take the knee of the floor and do a chaturanga that I will explain in the near future. First we must make our foundation stronger then slowly build our empire with right knowledge, body awareness, correct form and safe technique. That’s more important than anything else.

Backbend flow



Usually I get people who tell me “men can’t do yoga” because “men aren’t flexible” and I’m like 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 First of all NO matter which gender or sex believe you are YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE ! @beholistic108 Bibhu, is a prime example of this. Last year we did level 2 together and he couldn’t do chakarasana walls let alone a drop back. And in a year with his hard work he has GOTTEN SOOOOO MUCH BETTER. No ones perfect, and no one should even strive for perfection and IF YOU put in the efforts changes will come! You have to be PATIENT, gentle and must have the courage to believe in yourself.
Give him 6 months and I’m bet even coming back up from chakarasana will be smooth like butter.
And also, you might think”oh, yoga is about asanas and to check out your own butt!” Because you see that over flowing on Instagram or just that’s what you associate YOGA with. BUT is it so much more than that. It’s about 1. Trusting yourself 2. Taking care of your mental, physical AND emotional health. 3. Being more than your body. Knowing your more than your body but still taking care of your body.
Do you know for months when the depression was so bad (after not being able to get out of my bed for months!) I would just go on my mat and be in child’s pose and cry and cry and cry. Was that not yoga? Of course it was. Every time I would have an anxiety attack I would breathe. And the one thing about an anxiety attack is YOU CANNOT BREATHE. But now you I can even sense when my mood has shifted or I’m getting an anxiety attack and with the pranayama I can calm myself before I get one.
This is yoga. It teaches you to be one with yourself. It teaches you to accept yourself all of yourself and start healing. 💙 .

Practice daily. Stay safe. Stay humble.

100 SQUATS and how!



100 SQUATS and how!

What makes squats such a fantastic exercise?

1. Builds Muscle in Your Entire Body

Squats obviously help to build your leg muscles (including your quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves), but they also create an anabolic environment, which promotes body-wide muscle building.

In fact, when done properly, squats are so intense that they trigger the release of testosterone and human growth hormone in your body, which are vital for muscle growth and will also help to improve muscle mass when you train other areas of your body aside from your legs.

So squats can actually help you improve both your upper and lower body strength.

2.Prevent Injuries

Most athletic injuries involve weak stabilizer muscles, ligaments and connective tissues, which squats help strengthen. They also help prevent injury by improving your flexibility (squats improve the range of motion in your ankles and hips) and balance, as noted above.

ACL Tear Stretches & Exercises – Ask Doctor Jo



The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) helps keep the knee stable, and prevents it from sliding forward. When you have a Torn ACL, your knee can become painful and unstable. These stretches and exercises are for a non-operative or pre-operative injury. See Doctor Jo’s blog post about this at:

If you have an ACL surgery, make sure you follow your doctor and physical therapist protocols because there are several different ways to do the surgery, and they require different rehab during the recovery.

The first exercise is going to be a heel slide. Sit on the ground or your bed with the leg you want to exercise straight out in front of you. You can bend the other one up to a comfortable level or leave it all the way down. Slide your leg up keeping your foot flat on the ground. Go as far as you comfortably can, and then slide back down. Start with 10 of these, and work your way up to 20-25.

Now you will do a quad set. Put your leg you want to exercise out in front of you. You want to squeeze or activate the quad muscle by pushing your knee down into the ground. If you want to roll up a small towel to place underneath your knee for a target, you can. Also, pulling your toes up towards you will help straighten out the knee and contract the muscles. Hold this for 3-5 seconds and relax. Start with ten of these and work your way up to 20-25.

Then you will do an ankle pump. You can prop your ankle up on something if you want, but keep your heel free to move around. I am using a roll, but you can just hang your foot off of the bed or stool. You are going to pull your toes up at your ankle, and then push down like you are pushing on a pedal. This is dorsiflexion and plantarflexion. It works as a natural pump to get the fluid and inflammation out of the leg, so you can do this several times a day.

Next you will do a short arc quad (SAQ). For this, you will use a foam roll or a rolled up beach towel. You want something big so you have a good bend in your knee. Prop your leg over the roll with your knee on the roll. Try to keep your knee on the roll the whole time, and then lift your foot in the air until your leg is straight. If you pull your toes towards you at the end, this will help activate all the muscles in the leg. Try not to go fast because then you are only using momentum. Go slow and controlled with your movements. Start of with 10 of these, and then work up to 20-25.

Now you will do a straight leg raise (SLR). Lie down on your back, and bend one knee up. Straighten out the leg you want to exercise. You can prop up on your elbows or sit up, but this will make it harder. Pull your toes toward you to help lock out the knee. Just lift your leg to the height of your bended knee. There is no need to kick your leg way up in the air, and it actually takes away from the exercise. Make sure you are slow and controlled with this exercise. Going fast and using momentum will not be effective. If you get to 20-25 and it is easy, then you can add weights if you have them.

Finally, you will do some knee props. You can use a roll to prop up your leg, or you can sit in a chair, and have something of equal height in front of you. It can be another chair, an ottoman, etc. Place your heel on the other chair, and try to straighten out your knee as much as possible. If this is not enough stretch, you can add weights to it. A sack of potatoes works well, but sometimes it is too much weight to start with on your leg. Get a plastic bag, and add some soup or vegetable cans to it. Slide your foot through the loop of the bag, and place it just above your knee. Try to hold it there for 5-10 minutes and relax as much as you can. Over time, you can add more cans of soup.
