SUPER - LONG PERSONAL POST ABOUT ME

For the last decade I have been struggling with my weight.
I have been at many highs and many lows.
Epic weightloss saga count: #109283018
Hmm. Getting fitter, more toned, and changing my perspectives on weight loss through self-growth and this wonderfully supportive fitblr/WL community.
Follow me as I try to finally get lean, fit and MAINTAIN IT FOREVER :)

PS: I don't starve, I don't restrict my diet to only healthful foods, and I fight the urge to exercise obsessively (yoga = only exception). It's no way (for me) to live, and from my past experiences, this is not how you set yourself up to maintain.

Official Start Date: 4.25.11
(Last year around this time I was 112 lb.. a weight I had maintained for about a year and was truly happy at)

Height: 5'4.5" (164 cm)
Frame: Small


HW: 165 lb (2005)
LW: 98 lb (2003) <-- ignore this, I was in high school, lol!
SW: 123 (Down 15 lb from October '10)
CW: 117 (6/22/11)
I would like to look good and fit comfortably into my clothes while also being a lean badass. OVERALL GOAL: REDUCE BODY FAT PERCENTAGE.
*new* Become very, very, very flexible.

The incestuous LA yoga community

bunnychic:

For me, it all started with one random teacher in New York City… one teacher that is very famous but has little direct involvement with the yoga community in Los Angeles.

My first-ever yoga instructor was the ever-so-down-to-earth-yet-controversial Tara Stiles, a Manhattan-based teacher that owns Strala yoga. I’ve never met her, I just loved her simple yet YOGA-ACCURATE style of teaching in her YouTube videos.

Through Tara, however, I was referred to the glorious Ally Hamilton of Yogi’s Anonymous (they are good friends and teach together) in Santa Monica (the epicenter of all yoga in the United States). She is the master of flying and teaches some kickass Ashtanga-based vinyasa flow classes in studio and (for the locationally challenged) online.

Ally teaches with Brock Cahill, leader of arguably the most challenging vinyasa flow/power yoga classes in Los Angeles, “Flight Club,” a level 3/4 inversions-based class at Yogi’s Anonymous. He is also MY BOSS’ regular yoga teacher at Equinox.

Briohny Smyth (the infamous Equinox yogi) also teaches at the same Equinox as a regular sub for Brock, and is also MY BOSS’ teacher. She was trained under MY teacher:

the lovely and powerful Kathryn Budig. Kathryn is Giada De Laurentiis (my favorite homey Food Network chef- I now understand how she eats so much pasta but stays slim)’s private yoga instructor and also the teacher to Briohny’s fiance, who is ANOTHER one of my favorite teachers:

Mr. Vinyasa cutie, Dice Iida Klein, who was taught by yet another one of my boss’ instructors:

Bryan Kest, of Bryan Kest Power Yoga in Santa Monica, who is one of the few privileged students to study under the founder of modern Ashtanga:

K. Pattabhi Jois, the guruji of Ashtanga and the source of all modern Ashtanga/Vinyasa Flow/”Power yoga” styles in the United States. Two of his original, groundbreaking American students,

Tim Miller, who is probably primarily responsible for bringing Ashtanga/vinyasa styles to Los Angeles and longtime friend/fellow student:

Chuck Miller, one of the original founders of YogaWorks (now a chain of studios), both of whom trained many of the teachers I listed above, either directly or through generational association . YogaWorks was also the first studio I ever committed to practicing yoga in.

I can probably go on.. and on… and on… but yes. There are hundreds of famous yoga instructors in Los Angeles… and I believe they all can be traced, through a few degrees of association, back to each other. o_o Just random thoughts I had today.

Working on adding a few more pounds of muscle at my core, back and shoulders. My arms and legs are pretty strong, but without more core/back strength, it’s utterly useless during yoga practice. I’d love to reach the point where I spend at least 10% of my practice flying/inverted ^^ Then I could finally go to an infamous Yogi’s Anonymous Flight Club class…

Somebody needs to come along and kick my ass and make me lift heavy things. When it’s up to me I cop out… ^^;;

Wondering if I should invest in a pullup bar… I definitely want one. I am able to do 5-10 at a time (thanks to yoga). But the problem is that my apartment was built in the 50’s and there is asbestos insulation in the walls -_- I can’t risk puncturing anything… unless I want lung cancer…

Poses/progressions I have been working on lately/just enjoy doing!!

Piking -> handstand

The ever-wonderful “wild thing” (yummy backbends <3)

Crow! Working on side crow and flying pigeon :)

Also: no pictures, but working on deepening my twists and backbends. I started experimenting with full binds, and I can achieve them in certain poses when properly warmed up but my shoulder rotation is still fairly rigid so I need to work on that. I dropped down into wheel pose successfully twice, but once was when I was drunk and the other was under the supervision of a very good instructor in class… to be honest, I have been too scared to try again since then… ^^; (I don’t have health insurance)

@nearlymorning and I have been fitblr (+beyond!) friends for nearly a year, and sometimes we share brain waves (esp. when it comes to food + stretchy pants). And sometimes she totally makes my life by sending me pictures like these. Teehee. #yogatwinsies (Me: left, her: right)

She’s freaking awesome. @nearlymorning

My beautiful teacher, superwoman Kathryn Budig &lt;3
Also former teacher to Briohny Smyth.
I feel very privileged as a yogi in Los Angeles (currently considered the world’s epicenter for yoga). Having access to so many incredible instructors is a blessing. I am still a beginner, but I am being taught by the best.

^ Yep, I am reblogging myself.

Progression towards my ultimate goal, King of Dancers pose, nataraja asana :) I haven&#8217;t taken a recent picture but I believe I am closer to the full pose, which looks like this.
