Day 7: #HollysHandstands
.
#crisscrossscorpion
.
I call these wins, especially considering I didn't get a big warm up, was in the car 14 hours yesterday, AND most importantly, didn't fall into the pool. 😬🌊
.
Second slide was my first attempt, not by the pool, and I think it looks deeper πŸ˜‚ That fear will hold ya back! But hey! Sharing all the way through to both times I fell/bailed out, just to reinforce that you don't have to fall into wheel from scorpion. For so long, I figured that was inevitable so I wouldn't try it away from the wall. I also kept in the end where my son told people on his vlog to follow me on IG 🀣
.
Wish us luck with the weather. πŸŒ€πŸŒ¦β›±
A few short breaks in the clouds, but mostly #TropicalStormAlberto is having his way with the island!

Filmed this yesterday evening! Kinda like a moving meditation. Loving that half #puppypress half #straightlegpuppypress
(Had to do that so I wouldn't hit the tree 🀣). Sped up times 2 except the press.
.
πŸ›£ Vacation update: Still on the road. Stopped off at a @cvspharmacy in Macon GA and we were able to walk right into the clinic and my daughter was able to get an RX within about 30 min total. Thank goodness!!! She has a staph infection in her arm (how on earth?!) and is going to have 10 days of a strong antibiotic. So glad we were able to take care of it so quickly before we are stuck on an island πŸ˜… 🌴 Thanks CVS! πŸŽ–πŸ’Š

Day 6: #HollysHandstands
.
#pikehandstand
.
Couldn't wait for the tutorial this am so hoping I did this correctly! Actually shot the video yesterday evening, cause we are on a 13 hour road trip, heading South to FL! Watch my stories for anything of interest I can find along the way πŸ˜‰πŸ›£ Wish us luck. My 12 year old daughter suddenly has a bad mystery rash on her arm and I am like 😳 We are stopping at a walk in clinic in GA to get RX if needed. Also I hear there's a tropical storm coming. Yay! πŸ˜¬πŸ˜­β›±πŸŒ©πŸŒ€
.
Anyhoo, I still struggle to find a hold in pike, and that's without a gaze shift!!! So I am okay with these mini holds. The way I see it, my pike got some good practice at the very least! I can't pike jump in yet, so worked on #tuckjump in...which is feeling much more floaty and reliable these days! I did try to press in, but my pike wasn't nearly as good coming off a press.

Day 5: #HollysHandstands
.
#pikehandstandvariation aka
#swissarmyknife legs
.
This is meant to be deeper compression on the wrapped tuck leg but OH EM GEE this was so hard! Doesn't help that it's like 90 degrees and humid outside. But I'm kind of a sucker for punishment!
.
Sooo I sacrificed compression for actually holding the shape and gaze shifting for a few seconds 😰 I could hardly hold my weaker side at all! This was my last try of about 10 tries. The cue that helped me was gaining control of the hip flexors. They are really really key to keeping it all packaged together!!! When I put my focus there, I got my longest hold.

Last day of #inversionjunkiegirls
.
#balancebeam feet 🀣🀸
.
.
Love this little shape. Keeping core on lock is trickier than you'd think with foot switches! Tried to #airwalk my way down but I didn't make it very far 🀷🏼🀣 First time playing with a kick in with flexed feet the whole time! Felt funny!
.

Thanks for the fun @aimeemasch @amyyogamomof3 and @inversionjunkieapparel πŸ€ΈπŸŽ‰πŸ€Έ

Happy Thursday!
.
It's week 15 of our weekly #PressToLower fun, with me (Becca) @alli_roush (Alli) and @jadebellyyoga (Jade) 🀸🀸🀸
.
This week we are back in #pincha β™₯
.
Let's try:

#straddlepresspincha lower to #forearmwheel
.
I was VERY hot and not feeling very bendy when I shot these, but that's #yogapractice not perfection for ya! My main issue with this transition is that I need my compression/folds warmed up a TON for my #straddlepress BUT need a warm spine in the opposite direction for forearm wheel and #hollowbackpincha 😡 So had to sacrifice a little in both to marry them together!
.
Slide one is a two footed lower (only my second time ever doing that way!)
.
Slide two is my preferred way to lower, with #staglegs and almost a come up to #camelpose πŸ˜…
.
Work just your press, just the lower, or modify to suit your practice! Enjoy!!! β™₯

Day 4: #HollysHandstands
.
#eaglelegstuck
#tuckedeaglelegs
.
.
Well I've met my match!!! I think I held the full shape with gaze shift for maybe 4 full seconds 😡 @alli_roush I kept in some #beccaisms for you at the end πŸ€£πŸ™Š
.
BUT I suddenly got my #halfpikepress πŸŽ‰ I lifted it off like 5 times! So that's a win! #yogabreakthrough
.
Second slide I didn't do the full wrap..just lady legs. Still just as hard πŸ˜“πŸ€£

#bowandarrowhandstand
.

I usually like this shape, but I have a weird lil tweak in my left hip flexor that doesn't seem to want to let me bend or split as well as usual. Sooo this was my only attempt and it looks better than I thought it would, but didn't feel as good as it could have. Such is life! πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌ
.
Video on slide numero dos - you can see how I have to push through the chest and reeeeach out with the straight leg to deepen the shape. Balance/weight comes into the heels of the hands to offset the legs going behind you.

Day 3: #HollysHandstands
.
#tuckedstaglegs #tuckedstag
.
Today I was stubborn, and came back to this a few times until I got a leg switch in there 😍😱
.
That was my first time doing a gaze shift with my non-dominant side tucked (the second side I moved into) so I'm super stoked that I held onto it and didn't fall out!! Always a bonus to come out with control rather than careening out!!
.
So true about keeping those #bandhas on lock...and the spider fingers were earning their keep, too!

#eaglelegshandstand #ladylegshandstand
.
I did this before I ran little one to doc this am. Played with both lady legs and eagle legs.
.
Swipe β¬…First clip shows #toetappuppypress to lady legs switch βœ” Surprised me to get the tap in on first try!
.
Next clip, is a jump straight into #eaglelegs βœ” ( and believe it or not, harder than pressing in!!!)
Then decided to rep eagle legs switches. I got 6 and then decided to quit before I fell out πŸ˜‚ βœ”

And last clip is puppy press to lady legs with a #gazeshift βœ”

#straddle #straddlehandstand
.
This one has come a long way! I used to be tragically uneven, and now I'm just a tiny little bit uneven πŸ˜‚
.
So, I was trying to beat the rain again today - worked some #oahs (slide β¬…) and some #straightlegpuppypress into straddle. Also #jumptohandstand cause trying to get that more reliable! Happy with that slow lower πŸ˜πŸŽ‰

Day 2: #HollysHandstands
.
#lsplithandstand #lsplit
.
Hybrid of #lshapedhandstand and #splitshandstand equals lots of bandhas and hamstrings! 😳

Really happy with how my #splitpresshandstand is coming along. πŸ€— A lot cleaner, and getting more consistent (maybe I get up there 1/3 of the time?) Needs a lot of warm up and especially sucking that femur into the hip socket of standing leg...annnnd compression of that quad to chest.
.
Gaze shift was cool! I lost it my first try but this time figured out how to keep my body still so that I didn't fall out.
.
Hot as blazes here πŸ”₯ free hot yoga every day!
