YES! Oh and this is WAY harder, so for all you folks who think you know challenging, you ain’t seen nothing yet. #Repost @lalarimando
I struggled in #downwardfacingdog pose early in my #yogapractice. I blamed it on my lack of #flexibility and efforts to be more physically active only in my 40’s.
Over the years, I somehow gained enough flexibility in my hamstrings that I could better position my torso at almost 45-degree angle from my hips. Somehow I couldn’t fully achieve that iconic #invertedtriangle shape in the pose as shown by advance yogis. When I push my heels down on the floor, sometimes I feel discomfort in my hamstrings or my lower back. I believed I should just keep on practicing. One day, those heels will comfortably hit the ground. I was a work in progress, or so I told myself.
Then came injury. For the second time since I started my yoga practice, my wrist pain hit unbearable levels. It‘s #dequervains, and I was put on pain meds and six #physicaltherapy sessions to reduce the inflammation on my wrist tendons.
It brought me to the Manila workshop of @alexandriacrowyoga who debunked many of my fundamental beliefs about my yoga practice. The first yoga pose she deconstructed was...drumrolls, please...downward facing dog!
The angle of the ankle on that “perfect” downdog pose is 45 degrees, she said. She placed a measuring instrument on the photo to illustrate it. That’s way beyond the estimated 18-degree #functionalrange of the general population.
My jaw dropped. I’m part of the general population! Nothing’s wrong with me. Those on the perfect photos are actually the minority!
She asked, “What do you really want to work on in #downdog? Your core? Legs? You can still work on them w/o hurting your ankles” or, in my case, my wrist. She told us to lie on a bolster and to do a downdog, but imagine it flipped. (The one on the video shows me doing it.) Yep, core muscles were working. And so did my hamstrings and shoulder muscles, BUT wasn’t going beyond the angles my wrists and ankles are capable of. Still hitting muscles I want BUT w/o threat of another injury. A-ha! Hallelujah.
Such a relief there are options to still do yoga without pain down the road.

Think this guy is worried about what his shoulder blades or collarbones are doing? No? Then why are you?
.
We have to stop intellectualizing movement and teaching individual joints that don’t initiate movement in the yoga world.
.
There’s a better way to use the body to teach yoga. Oh, and you don’t have to ever do fancy stuff like this for it to work but this sure is rad to watch compared to a Crow pose!
