ileanonthewall #tbt 2011 Making a wish in Sillustani, Puno, Peru. In Peruvian culture, coca leaves are used in line with spirituality. This is a kintu ritual where three coca leaves are stacked on top of one another and held out to a mountain or other natural symbol. You blow your breath across the leaves to make an offering and connection with Pachamamma (Mother Earth)

ileanonthewall Good morning! Catching up on Day 9 of #independenceARMy with Sirsasana. I want to keep challenging my headstand practice so I remembered that I hated doing bicycles for core work. So why not combine it with something I do like? Turns out I enjoy bicycles far more doing them #upsidedown

ileanonthewall So I entered a 30-day drawing challenge with my friends. Day 1: Draw yourself I kept it minimal and chose simple lines so that I wouldn't get overwhelmed. Being a digital designer, I haven't sketched in what feels like ages. I forced myself to use a pen so that I wouldn't be able to erase mistakes when I felt that it wasn't "perfect." I also started to feel my own self judgement on how it SHOULD look. I actually ended up liking the feel of how my hand created the lines as I pressed the pen on paper and then leaning back to see the sketch as a whole. It's not perfect by any means. The proportions are off because my left leg is shorter than my right. Ironically, in real life my right leg really is a couple millimeters longer than my left. How about that? But much like yoga, it's not about what the final pose looks like, it's about making that step and enjoying the process

ileanonthewall Decided to try #tolasana so I could still practice strengthening the core and shoulders since the L-sit wasn't happening for me in the last post (yet). Finding your breath in yoga also finds that modesty and temper are essential during challenging times (and poses). When you undertake these challenges, you fund a will and strengthen character. What then grows from you brings light within you. So do what you can and know that every effort builds you into something better and brighter.

ileanonthewall Day 8: #independenceARMy Hasta Dandasana also known as L-sit. I haven't been able to connect to this pose. Technically, my feet are supposed to lift up by pulling the heads of the femurs into their sockets. I'm sorry...what?? I kept pointing and flexing my toes to see if it felt any different but my legs just felt like they were chillin I have my thinking face on because of the complexity I'm having haha. It was nice to try something new though

ileanonthewall Had to try out Day 7 of #independencearmy with Lolasana. It's much like bakasana (or so I thought) with your knees tucked into your chest instead on balancing on your arms. UGGHHH this was a hard one. I forgot to breathe because I was trying to squeeze my core so hard so that my knees wouldn't fall When all else fails, laugh it off Add this to the list of poses to conquer

ileanonthewall I haven't been practicing much on my headstands this past week and I've been feeling how my body's balance hasn't been as strong compared to when I do practice headstands regularly. But I was inspired by yesterday's #independencearmy challenge with bakasana and I was trying to figure out how I can make transitions with headstands Make #morningyoga your #playtime...especially on a #Monday!

ileanonthewall @kriddled this is how I got out of Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana. I tuck and roll my head forward and collapse my forearms to support my neck then lower down one vertebrae at a time.

ileanonthewall #morningyoga Camatkarasana: One poetic translation of this pose means "the ecstatic unfolding of the enraptured heart." I mean....how can you not start your day like that?? #yo#yogalove #yogapose #yogaeverydamnday #openheartseries #camatkarasana #armbalanace #summerofbalance #fitspo #fitgirl #fitness #wellness #openyoheart #happymonday 1w
