I've been taking a break from working on my end range flexibility in favor of strengthening my joints. Even though I post a lot of flexibility based poses here on Instagram, most of my actual practice is on refining and strengthening my foundation- and my teaching focuses on this as well. Don't get me wrong, I still love exploring my body like you can see in this video but I know that the best thing I can do for the longevity of my practice is continue to stabilize my joints. Consider this pose a reward for all of the work I've been putting in recently. I'm finally starting to feel strong enough to support myself physically, but more importantly I'm learning the mental restraint of not always pushing my flexibility to the max in order to feel worthy or special.
Thank you for the assistance and inspiration @danielrama_
