MOBILITY MONDAY: Looking for a better way to roll out your calves? _
Try this oscillating calf release!
Keep your bottom on the ground and GRIND back and forth ACROSS you calf muscles.
Move the roller up your leg an inch at a time and repeat.
10 seconds at each level will do the trick ✅
Thankyou to @alphafitnessperformance for helping me out last weekend with my compound lifts. In particular backsquats. This movement has always been complex for me, I was experiencing a lot of tightness in my back and a serious butwink. With a combination of mobility/stretching and his recommended activation exercises for hip flexors (seated double leg pike, 5 sets of 6 reps including a 5 second isometric hold at the top) I’ve certainly noticed a difference. I used to dread back squatting now it has never felt better or more enjoyable. Anyone looking for some advice when they get stuck with such lifts I highly recommend speaking to Jason! 🤙🏻👋🏼🏋🏻♂️🔥
there is this energy full of wonder, mystery and questioning racing down that lost highway within me, a dimension inbetween where art dissolves into pure love, where thought leads to understanding \\ down that rabbit hole finding a deck of cards. heart 8.

To the spirits of my lineages that stand in the Ancestral realms, with heads held high and hearts bursting with love and compassion, to the blood threads that run through my veins, to the cosmic threads that run through my energy lines, to the everlasting Tree of Life in which we are all connected… the no form, the full form, the giants, the tiny ones, the ones before time, the future ones, the ones whose air I breathe now... I am listening, I am learning and I thank the stars and every blade of grass that I discovered all of YOU. ⠀ ⠀
There comes a time when healing the pain, trauma, abuse, misery, witch hunts, starvation, immigration, ‘insert painful experience here’ stops being so raw. ⠀
The ancestral spells are broken, the dream weavers arrive, the healing begins, the lineages start a restoration process and you get to witness the blossoming of it all. ⠀
As you cry every tear, emerge from the deaths and rebirths and and feel every moment of heart breaking agony eventually turn to awe, gratitude and wonder. And then it spreads to your family members and this is no coincidence for if one branch in your ancestral tree starts to activate pretty soon other branches will dance at sunrise too. Next thing the ravens arrive and every feather guides your path and you realise you are never, ever alone. ⠀
The Empress and the Dragon – a powerful step towards ancestral womb healing and activation.⠀
