Got my bear back They think there’s something wrong with a disc in her back but she’s doing better, despite being sleepy and moody with me for taking her to the vet. Fingers crossed she will be 100% soon 🤗

Yo cada vez que toca pierna a la barra Los que no conocen esta cuenta, siganla y chusmeen la razón por la que esta bailarina hace estos vídeos en el Link a su pagina! #repost from @biscuitballerina with @regram.app ... There’s no better way to end a long week than with a nice stretch so that you can start your weekend feeling like a fabulous slinky rather than like a giant knot. #looseligaments #hypermobile #blessed #fullrangeofmotion #capableofhyperaplits #dontneedtoberussianfobebendy #americansareflexibletoo #iwokeuplikethis #biscuitsforlikes #embraceyourbiscuits #ballet #ballerina #balletdancer #ballerinasofig #dance #dancer #dancersofig #instadance #instaballet #balletlife #danceislife #dancelife #worldwideballet #biscuitballerina #ballet #dancerslife #dancewear #balletomania #ballet #fun #argentina

Mama finally figured the reason out for her random hearing loss. BP drops. While I don't have the natural ability to alert her to this she is happy for tools like these as well in her fight for chronic illness! #servicedog #servicedogs #servicedogsofig #shepardmix #adoptdontshop #dogsofinstagram #sdit #disability #multiplesclerosis #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #hypermobile #pots #migranes #fatigue #musclespasms #dysesthesia #dysautonomia #insomnia #ibs #chronicpain #spoonie #chronicillness #msawareness #mswarrior #mssucks #advocate #invisibleillness

You ok hun? —————— Yes my friends, that is chest to floor in lizard lunge 🦎🧘‍️‍️ Bear in mind, when a teacher offered this as a variation in class last year, I laughed as it seemed so impossible —————— No it’s not perfect and you won’t see it featured in yoga journal anytime soon but the fact my hip flexors allowed it, is HUGE! —————— I’ve struggled with tight hips for as long as I can remember as a result of having a lordotic posture due to hypermobility and then additional abuse from spin, dance training, a desk job etc —————— So this is one of the many reasons I love yoga, it’s slowly but surely giving me some hip mobility —————— #reasonsiloveyoga #yoga #yogi #lizardlunge #uttanpristhasana #chesttofloor #yogaeverydamnday #hipflexorsofsteel #hypermobility #hypermobile #yogaftw #hipmobility #flexibility #bendy #bedroomyoga #notmybedroom #yogisofinstagram

September 2015 this was one of the reasons for the aspen neck brace. This position was most comfortable for me. It alleviated my symptoms. It increased my shoulder mobility. It decreased my neck pain. It helped my neuro symptoms. The problem is my neck was extremely hypermobile. I would move into this position in my sleep. This position isn't safe...at all!! I learned my neck was subluxating & dislocating when I did this. *If you have neck issues do NOT go into this position! * Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) can cause pretty extreme hypermobility (moving a joint past normal range). I think it's safe to say my neck used to be ridiculously hypermobile. The fact it was so difficult to find a doctor still boggles my mind. * @ehlersdanlos @ehlers.danlos @thezebranetwork * #neckpain #contortion #contortionist #hypermobility #hypermobile #ehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlos #instability #neckinstability #dislocation #subluxation #neurosurgery #neurosurgeon #medical #miraclesandmesses to #medicalstudent #medstudent #medlife #educate #motivate #inspire #spoonie #spoonielife #invisibledisability #invisibleillness #flexible #flexibility #fightlikeawarrior #chronicloveclub

Went to the vet- and $700 later we have a new treatment plan. We believe Buddy has allergies and have tried so many things. Doc says he likely will need to be on meds rest of his life which makes me pretty sad. The med we chose is $100/month. I'm going to see what the test results show & if he makes improvement on the meds before I let it all really sink in. We don't believe this is a factor to stop him from working & he gained 15 pounds in the 9 months I've had him so there are some positives here! Going to rest for the weekend. #servicedog #servicedogs #servicedogsofig #shepardmix #adoptdontshop #dogsofinstagram #sdit #disability #multiplesclerosis #ehlersdanlossyndrome #eds #hypermobile #pots #migranes #fatigue #musclespasms #dysesthesia #dysautonomia #insomnia #ibs #chronicpain #spoonie #chronicillness #msawareness #mswarrior #mssucks #advocate #invisibleillness

Fortune of Anatomy 1st photo- January 2018 2nd clip- January 2016 My new apex pose is the most recent. Having a large lung capacity is a blessing. Inhaling and exhaling with ease. Being on a level where deep breathing is second-nature. Swimming alongside creatures in the sea with ability to hold the breath for a decent amount of time. This is also made easier with consistent and conscious pranayama practice. Natural flexibility; a common trait. Allows for deep, juicy yoga poses, range of motion in sports, work, and in everyday life. The ability to relax while in a deep stretch. This can feel so good. On the other hand, hypermobile bodies can be more prone to injuries. With lax tissues, one can also take longer to recover once damage is done. Over-stretching is something we can all avoid. There is a difference between stretching muscles (), and stretching joints (). Building strength in the joints is key. Give it a try in your next session of whatever you practice regularly. Ease out of flexibility and into a more stable place. Learn some PRE-hab exercises to strengthen these less esthetic places and prevent injury. It is soooo worth it. #recovery #rehabilitate #physiotherapy #workout #fitness #fitchicks #kiteboardgirls

Feeling pretty beat up this week after returning home from Brazil but what’s the point of training if you stop when you just don’t feel like it? Really wishing I didn’t wait till the last round to take this video because I see plenty of movement flaws here’s my last set of 5 TnG snatches! #snatch #crossfitgreenbay #hypermobile #crossfit #grinditout

I’ve been feeling incredibly broken this week. So much has happened and I’m working on putting it all into perspective. With everything seemingly falling apart though, I’m lucky to have a friend who could remind me that it’s okay to not be okay, and even broken crayons still color. . . . It’s so easy to say “it’ll be okay” “I hope you feel better” and as nice as that can be, sometimes all you need is to be validated and told that you’re rightfully sad, and that it’s okay! Sadness is not eternal, and sadness is not the enemy. We have to feel it and recognize it so that we can also feel the sunshine.

My little bear is poorly at the vets . She’s had health scares in the past but always bounced back full of energy, let’s hope she does again. This time there’s something wrong with her spine, not sure what but they are doing tests. Send your positive vibes in her direction please Incidentally, when I first got Ripley nearly nine years ago at one of her first vet checks they said to me - she has quite hypermobile hips and joints, she may even have something called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, do you want some information? I was floored, I think I actually laughed. Of course she is hypermobile! She’s my dog after all!! I said - how about I give you some information! 🤣
