I am here in our summer house with my family, leaving tomorrow after a week. Each time I come here, I stay in between the past and the future. A past filled with memories good and sour, a woman married then with a corporate job; and a future now filled with hope and dreams being a yogi single mom. I used to be feeling sort of squeezed within in these two characters; denying past and trying to act like the future. Now I realize that none is the truth ! The truth lies in the now; and I am the woman living yoga raising a young man with his father; trying to make a living with all my gifts training myself and sharing what I experience with others. I am not ‘anything’ nor ‘something’; I am just what I am now, what I can offer now, I will serve with it 🙏🏻🌈🎈💙 happy monday, Happy week !
1 haftaya yakın bir zamandır burada ailemle vakit geçiriyorum. Eskiden geçmişteki ben ile gelecekteki ben arasında sıkışıp kalırdım böyle zamanlarda. Geçmişte varolan evli kurumsal işi olan para kazanan anne Hande geçmişini ittirir; ve bekar Yogi öğretmen anne Hande gibi olmaya çalışmaktan ‘şimdi’yi kaçırırdım. Oysa ki ben aileme bir açıklama yapmak zorunda olmayan sade sevgi yolunda bir araştırma içinde ‘bir kimse’ bir eğitmen bir öğretmen bir anne olmak zorunda olmayan, bu rollerle şimdi içinde ne oluyorsa, ne olabiliyorsa o şekilde mevcut olan bir insanım sadece. Şimdi burada tek yaptığım şey sevgimi sunabilmek tüm sevdiklerime...tüm kimliklerden uzak...iyi haftalar, namaste 🙏🏻🙏🏻 #postbayram#bayramsonrası#pazartesi#şükür#gratitude#yogainspiration#tripodheadstand#variation#bakasana#bakasanatotripodheadstand#instayogalover#mindfullness#speakingfromtheheart 🎥 @asumantariman 🙏🏻
When I was 19 I was working 3 jobs, managing and maintaining the houses my dad rented (painting, flooring, finding tenants, creating a lease, etc.), managing my dad’s medications, taking him to appointments every week and following up with his doctors, and pouring every bit of energy I had into this broken, debilitated human being. He was suicidal and in pain, physically and mentally. He needed 24 hour comfort and care. I never missed his phone calls because I didn’t want to be the reason he took his own life... After years of draining out every ounce of energy and sanity I had for him, I kind of gave up and eventually quit talking to him altogether. You can’t help someone who’s not willing to help themself. #selfcare#headstand#tripodheadstand#yogaeverydamnday
“I looked at the clock; 2:22PM.
Remembering seeing a graphic I'd seen with the various meanings of repetitive numbers thanks to the tag team of the Universe + Instagram algorithm, I instantly Googled "repeating numbers." I was directed an article from thelawofattraction.com.
The post begins by describing how the Universe uses numbers as a way to grab our attention as a way to communicate with us. Alright, Universe, I'm listening. Whatcha got for me?”

how do you know when the universe is giving you signs? ✨
ps: i got a major sunburn on my back from practicing outside today but it was totally worth it to stick this 🤸🏼♀️☀️🙌🏻
7️⃣ An inversion that makes you focus on body alignment ➡️It's strange how difficult I find Tripod Headstand, in comparison to Headstand itself. I learned first Sirsasana, and almost always play in it, so when I want challenge a little I play in Tripod and it's all about engaging actively the core, the glutes, the quads... And I really cannot relax in it 🤣 Anyway, had to share both pictures because so happy to have Mirtillo the rabbit with me today ❤️ he just adores this mat. 😋 See you tomorrow! 😘
Join us from June 11-18 to to discover how feedback from our body is signaled to our central nervous system, which controls our motor responses. Your (neuro-)scientist hosts will introduce scientific facts according to individual topics and talk about balance, body perception, inversion, proprioception, etc. Join us to train your proprioception, bring your yoga practice to another level and have fun together! 🧠🌟💓
Yesterday I was having a chat and giving some advices to a fellow photographer who takes really great landscape pics but he’s struggling a bit with photographing people. I was saying thing like “giving life to those landscapes introducing some human element or some detail that can tell a story” and so on then, later on in the day, I had finally some time to check the photos I did in Norway few days ago, I saw this picture I am posting here and I had one of those “aha moment”, a real breakthrough.
Have a look at the image: there is this huge cave with an almost heart shaped hole (I could have photoshopped it to make it more heart shaped but there is no photoshop here unless some basic color enhances), there are the sun’s rays coming towards the woman (just shoot at something like F16 and the star effect magically happens) and there is a naked body of a woman, naturally strong and rooted in nature.
And here is when I realized: there is no difference between us and nature, we are nature and nature is us.
A landscape is already a living creature with its trees, rocks, waters and air, and a body is a landscape with its curves and ever changing shapes.
So ultimately there is no difference in photographing landscapes of photographing the human body. It’s all nature, WE ARE NATURE.
Thank you @gurigaia for inspiring me these thoughts. You’re a shining star!

Transitions are a super cool way to build up strength and confidence.
I have started to incorporate this one into my hand balance class as it is a great way to experiencing pushing the ground away, which is need for balancing in handstand.
Top video ❌ is an example of what not to do. Eventhough I have completed the transition I am using very little strength and control. I am basically just getting by with momentum. 👎U will see as I move from crow to tripod headstand I basically just plonk my head one the floor👎👎👎not good for the neck! 👎When I go from Tripod back to crow all my weight is going to the back of my body hence I barely get to hold crow😔
Bottom vid✅ I am using breath to control myself to lower my head down as close to the floor as pos👍no plonking ✅ When coming back up to crow from tripod I again use my breath to help me lift. I then distribute my weight evenly by looking forward and stretching my neck out. Thus I come into crow and hold👍
Give it a go💖
Tripod headstand play 💗
Being upside down is still pretty scary and I wouldn’t be able to bring my legs up without being next to the wall, but comparing that to even 3 months ago it’s something huge for me. I’m moving past some fears in my mind and it feels liberating 😍
