Hey ✌
Think Stewie is as excited as me to wake up to snow this morning🐶❄☃😍🎉 .
I have literally not even touched my toes in a month😱 I'm almost afraid to try 🤣 But I'm doing great and enjoying my break❤ .

I thought I would give IG a clean break so I wouldn't be jealous seeing all of you doing stuff I can't even try right now🤣 But I wanted to say thank you so much for all the lovely messages, cards, calls, texts & flowers I know who my friends are for sure 😍
.

So what's been happening, gimme all the goss😁 I've heard about some drama about people selling their souls for brands and paid posts and I'm raging I wasn't around to chime in 🤣 Funny how the people that seem to have an issue with paid posts are either already living their dream or simply jealous. Yoga eh😳 Let me be very clear I would sell my granny along with my soul if a brand wants to pay me a salary to wear yoga leggings all day and take pics! I've zero issue with people doing paid posts once they're honest and not claiming that by drinking a cup of tea in a thong will suddenly give you the body of a goddess. I've had a few interesting offers in the past but as soon as I say im based in little ol Ireland I never hear from them again 😭 At the end of the day we all have to make a living and most of us are already selling our souls to a very unyogic corporate life anyway so who are we to judge eh😩 .
Anyway hope to be back at my regular yoga practice soon but oddly this break hasn't been as hard as thought it would be🤔 .

So...... you may have noticed my recent sudden absence from my challenge 🙈 I'm so so sorry but I ended up needing an operation on my abdomen. Nothing major but I do fear for my handstands for a few weeks 😭 Surgeon reckons 2 weeks minimum 😱 That's like a lifetime in yoga world! .
I just want to say a massive thank you to my amazing co hosts and dearest friends of #1MoreShotAsana2 for having my back and carrying the can. I did have all my posts ready in advance but I was just too delirious to post but I promise I will post them when I can❤ Thank you as always to our amazing participants and apologies for not being as interactive as I would have liked🙈
.

Arriving home from hospital to see these beautiful flowers waiting for me literally made me cry (There was also a lovely box of chocs which my family said were delicious 😂) Thank you to the best friends a girl could ever ask for
@bowlingandyoga @jeminajakin @stretchylexi @pinkchampagne13 @clarerdubai @alli_roush & @jadebellyyoga LOVE YOU ALL ❤

Also thank you to @pranamat for my acupressure pillow and mat, which I reckon I will get alot more use out of it than I had initially planned! I'm relying on it for my recovery! No pressure now! 😉

P.S. I have most of my next challenge posts ready for #PropAndProud I may be skipping a few days and I'm sorry if I'll be the world's worst host but I'll do my best with whatever I have already prepped for you all💚

Thank you to everyone who has sent me well wishes I'll be back in no time hopefully, I'm on the mend even if I look like a granny carrying twins at the moment 🤣 A shower was my biggest achievement today so I'm doing well 😉❤

Aaaahhhhh sorry I'm so late posting but I really just haven't had a second to myself lately😭 Its been kinda manic 😭😭 .
I tried my best not to make this day a snooze fest for you but all I can think of when I think of balance is a handstand and arm balance is the next best thing so here is my take on balance day on one arm and I won't lie this took one shot or more accuraty one screenshot after taking one very quick video 🤣 Screenshots are totally legit right 🤔
.
I'm now way behind on the gallery! I sincerely apologise but promise I will catch up asap when I can try and finish work at a reasonable hour!!! I hate missing all your amazing posts I'm loving all the inspo I'm getting from you all even if I can't do half of what I'm seeing you're all amazing!!! .

Twists are not really my thing at all, I do them as I understand their benefits but usually it's a fleeting moment in a flow. I never seem to get the whole enlightened organ cleansing experience that everyone else seems to experience in them though 🤣 I usually just feel like my intestines are being turned inside out🙈
I remember posting this variation early this year and I remember going totally OCD on not only the angles but also the editing! I defo took about 100 shots and then another 100 attempts at editing it. But this time I took 2 shots and hardly much editing at all 🙈 I'm either getting lazy or my OCD is not as bad as it used to be! I could easily have redone this one several more times but I figured it doesn't have to be perfect and being imperfect is just perfect. .

. 📸 | BACKBEND | 📸 | DAY 5 | .
How predictable am I 🤣 To be fair I had something totally different for today but it wasn't what I was trying to do so im gonna keep trying the thing I was trying and if I can't do it then I'll post the thing that I did when I was trying to do the other thing I was trying to do 🤣😜 Make sense 🤔
.

As we all now know I wasn't born on bendy land planet so backbends need some serious warm up for me otherwise you'd need super powerful glasses and a major zoom lens just to see a micro bend in my back 😅 Anyhow luckily handstands take far less warm up so although the left one doesn't look like a backbend it is a major one for my upper back and shoulders and it's possibly one of my favs. The right pic makes me feel like I'm wearing a butt hat and it confuses me when I see the pic because i could swear my butt was on my head 🤣 Taking the feet off the wall is scary at first but I use my lower back to draw them gently away from the wall. I do NOT kick or push off the wall. So be careful if you decide to try this. .
The gallery is amazing, your enthusiasm is so infectious! I'm loving this so much 😍 💗Check in on my amazing co hosts posts for more ideas before you make your final choice ✌

Wall to the rescue for giving me superhuman powers ☄😜 .

It took me many many attempts to get that one armed flying crow mainly due to the fact I looked a little deranged in every shot 😂 I really don't suit that moody deep concentration look 😂
.
Thankfully the bottom one was a little easier to capture🙌
.
It's the weekend and I can't promise I'll be quite so on top of the gallery it's best I don't mix Instagram and wine you never know what might be said on your posts 😂 Have a great weekend everyone and have some fun with arm balance day. Really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for this one 💗 💗Check in on my crazy co hosts posts for more ideas before you make your final choice ✌

So these shots didn't just take a few shots they took a few DAYS😂 I really wanted to find something different and I just kept coming back to this one with a million different variants of basically pyramid pose (#Parsvottanasana )🤣 So I've jazzed it up using the wall and also using my son and dog for cuteness factor. Sorry I did try to find a baby and a puppy but these props will have to do 🤣
On the second slide which I took last weekend was with a fold and honestly this was hard as hell to fold into the leg while balancing on one arm I reckon one more shot of this and that arm was gonna snap right off 😱 .
Looking at the gallery you all seem to be having a blast! And we are loving it! I was feeling quite smug last night cos I was totally on top of the gallery. If you haven't even had a like from any of us on your posts (we can't comment on every post as IG will ban us) but it may be because youre banned. If you're banned we won't see your posts under the tag so you will have to tag us so we can see your posts or just leave a comment on one of our posts and let us know and we will check out your posts manually 😍 This excludes those of course using our hashtag for the craic just to gain followers and not actually joining our challenge, we try not to like those so we can save our likes for those that  actually deserve them! 😈 💗Check in on my crazy co hosts posts for more ideas before you make your final choice ✌

. 📸 | HANDSTAND | 📸 | DAY 2 | .
Omg that gallery has exploded on us😱 Holy friggin moly after one day you're killing us and our thumbs 🤣  Slow down and let us catch up 🤣 Some crazy cool variations of planks that I've bookmarked so many to try so I'm loving that you guys are inspiring us! 💗
.
Day 2 is our beloved handstand, and don't panic if you can't do a handstand, get those creative brains working and think outside the box..... if handstand is completely out of your reach even a supported one you could be very clever and just stand up and post your pic upside down 😉 How easy would that be! And savasana flipped can resemble a handy too so remember this challenge is not about what you  an or can't do it's about having some fun and getting a little creative ✌
.
Once again I couldn't choose and I had taken a few shots with Stewie and didn't want to waste them even if I couldn't get a non blurry high five with my dog 😭 But after taking approximately 100 shots I felt I had to share one of them. The one handy at the wall is not as hard as it might seem I start in a normal handy with one foot resting on the wall then I lift the arm and then pull the other leg away from the wall. .

Like I said above please have fun with today and don't take it so seriously🎉 💗Check in on my crazy co hosts posts for more ideas before you make your final choice ✌

#1MoreShotAsana2 ✌📸 📸 | P L A N K | 📸 | DAY 1 | .

Let the madness begin🎉 Day 1, round 2 of the best funenge ever! And we start out nice and easy as always with a straight forward plank pose, 😈  You can rev it up or choose one of my amazing co hosts versions or you can create your own monster! I took approximately 200 shots and I couldn't choose which plank to use! I mean I cant stand upward plank on the floor so what made me think using a wall would make it any easier is beyond me, I'll save you the trouble and tell you now that's impossible! And as for the flying plank well that's a whole other story but it's way more fun 🤣 .
The rules are simple;
1. Have fun.
2. Stay safe.
3. Check in on the gallery.
4. Support eachother.
5. Smile!
6. Tell us the number of shots it took you.
7. Be as creative or as simple as you feel.
8. Post as many times as you like.
9. Smile.
10 and lastly SMILE 😍 ( I needed 10 rules 😂)
.

Here is the list of the bases poses for each day so you have time to prep some poses in advance and know what to expect 😉  1  Plank ✔

2  handstand
3  standing pose
4  arm balance
5  backbend
6  twist
7  fold
8  balance pose
9  headstand or pincha
10 yogis choice 💗Check in on my crazy co hosts posts for more ideas before you make your final choice ✌

There is no such thing as a bad f'ing handstand✌

Browsing IG with all the tutorials on how to perfectly execute a pose would have scared the life out of me if I saw them when I was starting out. I don't think I would have ever stepped on my mat! 😂

I was looking through some old videos I have and I was shocked to see that only 2 years ago I had a very inconsistent handstand hold. I had a pretty strong handstand practice back then but my handstand (to the purists) was crap but to me it was magic.
I'm well aware my handstand still needs tons of work but who cares I'm more than proud of the progress I've made!
I spent 5 mins a day dedicated to handstands, simply kicking up over and over. Doing cartwheels as slow as I could and doing lots of shoulder openers and push ups for strength. But honestly the simple action of just kicking up will build you the strength you need.
I saw a post today from someone saying that people that do advanced poses are not doing REAL yoga🤔 Isn't it funny how judgemental those 'real' yogis are! How ironic eh. Handstands are probably considered advanced to most people but to me a simple forward fold or a hip opener is the most advanced pose to me so I wish people would stop being so judgemental of others practice and enjoy their own practice and if handstands aren't for them then don't do them. But you can still admire without being so judgemental😤

I miss my @feetup 😭 I accidently left it behind me in a studio after doing a workshop and haven't had a chance to collect it😭 But that won't stop me working my kick overs 🤣 Where there's a will there's a way 🤹

We have a another super exciting challenge starting second week in November so stay tuned for that with lots of tricks and tips for creative prop usage.... This is a little teaser of what you can expect 😍

I will be hosting with my amazing friends too @bowlingandyoga

Feeling really crappy with a sore throat and zero energy right now and lacking serious motivation for creating IG posts 😭 Please feel free to tag some inspo pages that inspire you and may help me too😍 It's strange that I'm feeling so demotivated but couodnt be happier right now 🤣 How odd am I 🤣 Maybe I am more suited to the lazy life after all 🤣🤣🤣 But here is a flipped grip split progress that I took on holidays, I was hoping to clean it up before sharing my progress but hey it is what is it and to me it's beyond amazing that I can even attempt this and don't worry I ain't naive to think it's perfectly aligned but I'm far more familiar with the not so perfect alignment so this is pretty imperfectly perfect progress for me 😜 ✌
