I was so inspired by a post I saw by @yellowkimber (yeah, I know I have a serious neck on me attempting anything she does πŸ˜‚ But no one said I can't cheat😜) So I pulled out the ol reliable manduka and made an attempt at it 🀣 Its not even remotely like what she did. She basically lifted from a compressed L Sit to a flippin handstand tuck 😱 Clearly not possible for normal humans πŸ˜‚

It was fun to imagine me doing it anyway 😜

I feel like it's been forever since I had the time for a proper IG stalk πŸ€— I went down a serious rabbit hole this morning looking for Yoga inspo but ended up getting lost stalking food, fitness, interiors and following all the scandal on the Deciem page (anyone else obsessed with The Ordinary products? You will know what I'm on about πŸ™ˆ)stock piling was a real possibility but all seems to be ok now🀞
Hope you're all having a super Sunday. Weekends go way too fast 😍

Home sweet home πŸ€πŸ¦„ As much as I love going away (minus kids and hubs πŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈπŸŽ‰ πŸ˜‰πŸ™ˆ) I especially love coming home to them all too 😍 .....for the first day at least.... #whenismynextholiday ..... Went to see A Star is Born last night at last..... I was dying to see it. Bradley Cooper was amazing and the story was cute but I would love to hear what everyone else thought πŸ€”

Any chance you'd be mad if I just posted an ol emoji and an empty caption πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€£πŸ˜˜πŸŒž #onmyholidays 😜

This is pretty much how all my handstands have looked since arriving here πŸ˜‚ #totallyintentional 😜

Handstands and holidays don't seem to mix for me πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Why cant I be of the superhuman kind and be able to handstand on cliffs and stuff πŸ™„ I got scared just doing one here in case I cut my toe on a rock πŸ˜‚

Couldn't pick a more appropriate post as I....erm....board a plane πŸ˜³πŸ€£πŸ˜¬πŸ˜“πŸ€” Wish my fellow passengers luck πŸ€
Catching the red eye and I haven't slept 😭 I was either too anxious about the flight or not waking up to my alarmπŸ™„

Countdown is on, less than 24 hrs till I will be on one of those thingamajigs tbat magically float in the sky with 5 million kgs on board on my way to sunny #Lanzarote 🌞 Not before I first make a unicorn cake for my gorgeous sparkly niece's birthday 😍 πŸ¦„
Can anyone recommend any good podcasts for me to listen to? Please no Yoga related ones πŸ™ˆ Also please dont recommend anyone that breathes deeply into the mic and has that hideous slurpy saliva sound when they speak 🀣 I think I may have that #misophonia disorderπŸ™ˆ Even the sound of someone gently breathing makes my eyes bleed 🀣 I listened to a podcast today where they started to get upset and for the next 20 mins I had to listen to them snuffle down the mic😫 Gross🀣 Anyway I like everything else, I promise I'm not that fussy....... Ok off to finish packing πŸ‘‹

Sometimes a plain old headstand just won't do 😜
Headstand #instagramafied πŸ˜‰

I have a question for you all; Everytime I post something I lose a heap of followers? Is there something going on or have I just become yesterdays news and I'm now free to post pictures of my dinner with a rumi quote and no one will take a blind bit of notice🀣 (Or maybe I really am just sh*t πŸ€”) Whatever the cause it's a little bit meh to the ol self esteem πŸ˜† I could go on and on about how I dont care and it doesnt bother me blah blah blah.... all of that is true but still I'm a little curious if it's just me or is it happening anyone else πŸ€” .

Anyway anyone else waiting patiently for this week to finally end 😭 Its been a bit of a crazy one but roll on Monday I'm off to the sun - Lanzarote! 🌞 Anyone else out there at the mo? πŸ‘‹

When something looks finger breaking hard it usually is πŸ˜† I've been scrolling back through my page looking to explore some old favourites (yes I'm that much of a narcissist I inspire myself πŸ˜‚) but what I've learned in doing this is I'm now sh*t πŸ˜† At everything! So there goes my ego anyway 😜 This was definitely much easier once upon a time.... πŸ™Off to watch my son (Alex) play his county(Football) final this evening! Please wish him luck! πŸ€ #Irishwillknow πŸ˜‰

It was either a blurry hand or blurry foot.... I went with the blurry foot😜 (Not even a filter can save the quality of this pic πŸ˜† trust me, I tried! Just ask my hip who took a few bumps attempting this🀣) We need a pop up challenge! Who's with me??? πŸ‘‹

#yoga #yogainspiration #popup

Just putting the final touches to our up coming challenge. Ot starts October 10th πŸ˜‰
So while you wait, heres a little bit of info you that might help answer some handstand questions I get.... Using a wall to handstand fills me with dread because most beginners will just fling themselves up against it and almost their back through it!
I would much prefer to see beginners approach learning to handstand using control (I wish that's how I learned!) It may take longer to find balance but it will undoubtedly prevent injuries and build mindful strength.
This approach ive demoed here is certainly NOT the easiest but worth practicing, if to build strength and spatial awareness.
Stacking the hips is driven by the pelvis, so pull the pelvis as much as you can and the legs will follow. Go as slow and controlled as you can.

Practice both sides and hold each position for 5 deep slow breaths.
Any questions please ask πŸ™πŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈπŸ™ BTW hope you'll all be joining us for our challenge in just over 2 weeks.... but first I have a holiday to attend 🍹🀣 Roll on #Lanzarote πŸ˜†
