🎢🤸🏻♀️🛵 Day 2️⃣5️⃣ of #SplitsAdventure 🔀 ‘Floating’ #Splits or #Hanumanasana 🛵🤸🏻♀️🎢 Consider today’s pose like a ‘floating’ version of Splits so, if the regular one doesn’t happen yet, wait up for tomorrow’s modification or, if you want to give this a go, keep the back knee on the floor as you hold onto the front ankle (that’ll make things easier). You’d get into it like for Splits, only right before arriving all the way to the ground, bend the elbows and cup your hands like you were about to splash water on your face. Lift and grab the front heel, continue to reach out through it, extend the leg fully as you walk the other leg further back. As usual, continue to square the hips, drawing the back one forward, and the front one back, and try not to shrug the shoulders into the ears. For those going for the full expression, curl the back toes under and lift that knee up, trying to project out through that heel, so the leg is completely straight. Aim for a long diagonal line from the front heel to the back toes. Relax the head and neck and fold the torso onto that leg. This is quite the upper body work so, be prepared to use those biceps! Play with the hip height and allow it to sink some to get an extra stretch on the back hip flexors and front hamstrings (the more you sink, the more of a ‘negative’ angle, so it’ll get more challenging). If this is not your flavor, I’ve got a much more doable pose in store for tomorrow, hang in there and keep at it!! We’re almost done!!! 📷 by @moises_chi.
