Loving this Alaska spring weather!
We get so much sunlight every day.
Today the sun rose at 6:12 and won’t set until 9:18 pm.
Tomorrow we will gain 5 minutes, and the next day, another 5 or 6, and the next day even more!
.
That’s a lot of #Sunshine!
.
Good thing I finally have a good skin care ritual so I actually wear sunscreen every single day.
I’ve been using and loving the Fré 123 set for over a year now and have seen such a huge difference.☺️
If you’ve been wanting to try it, now’s the time...it’s 25% off!
Use code Leigh15 for the next 48 hours only and I’ll put an easy link in my bio.

Ain’t that the truth!

So let’s play this new game from @natashaswinter, #StopDropandShareYoga where the goal is to share a pic from the past that you’ve never shared before.
.
And who doesn’t have one of those!? If you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged! #flashback to a few weeks ago when I was enjoying some early spring sunshine #snowga flow.

And jumping into #YogisFavourites after seeing lovely @yogiaubrey and @tiny.kirsty choose my favorite pose!

One of my favorite jobs of all time...
Flying the USGS around to gather and study the rocks near the volcanoes 🌋 in Lake Clark National Park. Normally helicopters can’t land here, but I had VIP passengers who were permitted to for this job, and I felt like the luckiest girl in the whole world!
.
While they collected super interesting volcanic rocks, I got my yoga on...with an amazing backdrop!
Mount Redoubt is behind me and it last erupted explosively on March 22, 2009. In fact I had to brush away some pumas stone that was scattered everywhere from that eruption.

“May the long time sun
Shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you
Guide your way on.”

My small town community has suffered a great tragedy. Sending all my love to the people of Valdez, Alaska.
.
A beautiful young wife and mother was killed in a hit and run accident on Sunday night.
.
My heart aches for all parties involved and affected, and especially for the 4 children left without their mother.
.
Please remember to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you. Life doesn’t make sense sometimes. But together we find strength.
.
There is a GoFundMe account set up for her family and I’ll put the link in my bio.

#ResolutionHandstand2018
Day 10
Last Day!😢
.
For tomorrow’s Yogi’s Choice I wanted to share a very short and sweet warm up and handstand practice that you can do every single day and it literally takes 5 minutes.
.
I haven’t been practicing daily until this challenge and I could sure feel it, but I’m as motivated as ever to keep this up, everydamnday! I hope you all are too!
.
I NEVER do a handstand practice without a wrist warm up...it’s essential, so even if you’re gonna pop up into a quick handstand for a pic outside somewhere, always at least warm up your wrist/forearms.
.
I shared a bit of hamstring and shoulder stretches in there too, and then it’s my favorite drill to fire up the core before handstanding:
#firehydrantpose!
It’s soooo good! Once I can activate the stabilizing muscles necessary to find stability in fire hydrant (I know, ridiculous name, right🤣) then those same muscles will keep me stable upside down.
.
Next is a one minute wall hold. While holding, you can work on pushing the ground away with every ounce of your being. Find length in your shoulders, there’s more than you think!
You can work on weight distribution in your hands/fingers. You can engage the legs and the core. All of it helps!
And if you face the wall like I did here, you run the risk of running out of energy to walk back out, so remember this side exit. It’s like a cartwheel, or just a side slide/slither and it may save you sometime...☺️
.
Thank you so much to all of you incredible #ResolutionHandstanders! You all inspire on the daily!
Remember to use #TeamResolutionHS2018 for your handy posts so you can cheer each other on!
We’ll be back in 3 months to help keep you, as well as ourselves, motivated and on track with our daily #handstand practice!
Love you guys!!! ❤️🤸‍♀️
