Iโ€™ve been prepping for an arm balance workshop next month and have decided to incorporate blocks. It adds height and room if you need a little extra help lifting your seat. What started as a block / shoulder positioning try out turned into yoga with dogs! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿถ PS - Sturdy blocks are important for your safety! Mine are @mandukayoga and I highly recommend them ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป .

Todayโ€™s Ashtanga Mysore practice. Iโ€™ve been practicing a modified primary series for quite a while now. The old me and my ego used to think I could do anything and that I was ready to advance to levels that I wasnโ€™t ready for. I might have been able to get into the poses but I wasnโ€™t engaging the correct muscles or breathing. I was relying on the wrong type of strength. Today I switched to the Primary Series because I knew I needed a bit more. There are still poses that my body cannot get into but itโ€™s a humbling reminder that Iโ€™m always a student and will always be learning! ๐ŸŒŸโค๏ธ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ .

This little light of mine. Iโ€™m gonna let it shine... This ray of sunshine absolutely makes my day. I hope it keeps coming back. Hereโ€™s some sort of #galavasana variation that just kind of happened. Glad I was able to safely get out! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ .

I always prefer an early morning yoga practice but 99% of the time I find myself practicing at night. Hoping to use this time change as a way to get out of bed earlier and get myself on the mat. Added perk is watching the sun rise. PS - that weird thing Iโ€™m doing in the beginning is called Nauli Kriya. Iโ€™ve been practicing it for a year and can finally make the mountain โ›ฐ appear. ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ .

Happy. Happy for another day, an additional hour of daylight, a healthy body, my little family and this ray of light that shined down on my favorite yoga space! โœจ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโ˜€๏ธ .

I struggle off and on with the idea of using social media to expand my own personal yoga network but then I see all of these amazing and inspirational yogis practicing and I get inspired to push myself and try new things. I love mayurasana and pretty much any other arm balance but Iโ€™ve never practiced this particular one with my fingers pointing away from my body.
It naturally transitioned into a chin stand and I loved it. So thank you to everyone who puts themselves out there on social media. Youโ€™re inspiring somebody! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ . .

Happy Sunday! Today is usually my rest day but I decided to use that yesterday. Some sort of allergic reaction had me down! Iโ€™ve been working on the Ashtanga headstands and Iron Cross May be my favorite! Balancing on my fingertips made it a little more challenging!๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ PS - Still looking for tips on how to clean my Jade mat. I gave it a good soak and rinse and now itโ€™s an unsafe slip & slide ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ .

Follow up from my 7 headstands of Ashtanga post. I just cleaned this Jade mat and she was super slippery. I didnโ€™t feel as safe as I like to when Iโ€™m adding weight to my neck (we only get one) and I was tempted to not post this because itโ€™s messy and I can pick it apart pretty easily. But I donโ€™t want to fall into the social media trap and take screenshots of my life and only show the pretty parts. Yoga mimics life in that it is hard and itโ€™s a journey. We slip, splat, fall, sometimes itโ€™s beautiful and sometimes itโ€™s messy! Embrace it, enjoy the ride and give yourselves a much needed break!๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธโญ๏ธ PS (Any tips on how to clean Jade mats would be greatly appreciated!) โค๏ธ

Finished Mysore and decided to practice the seven headstands of Ashtanga. The roots of Ashtanga are found in ancient Hindu texts and were brought into modern day popularity by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The flow between postures and inversions promotes blood circulation and sweating to further promote purification. The seven headstands are practiced at the end of an Ashtanga session. My dogs were a little too excited for me to feel comfortable practicing all seven but I was able to get four in. ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ .

Playing with blocks tonight was so much fun. I love getting lost in this practice and feeling like a kid again. ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผโค๏ธQuickest two hours of the day by far! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ .
