Laura Large  Ashtanga Yoga Teacher 🕉 UK 🇬🇧 💜 Tips & Tutorials #omniyogagirltips #creativeyoga #armbalanceaddict ⬇️YouTube channel⬇️

Yay! Hands up (or, is it hands down? 😋) who loves arm balances! 🙌 #YogisLikeToFly starts tomorrow... .
For Day 1 we have Elephant Trunk Pose, & I went with an extended leg variation. If you’re new to arm balancing, don’t worry, we’ll be giving tips & modifications... For this pose, the key action is to ‘scissor’ the legs towards each other as you lift. Engage both legs strongly, & imagine squeezing them together as much as you can, as you press the Elephant Trunk leg into your upper arm. Keeping the upper leg bent & hooked over the arm is an easier option than extending it. You can also place blocks under your hands to give you more lift, or a block under your extended foot to give you some extra support. I have some more detailed tutorials under the hashtag #omniyogagirltips 👍

Happy Father’s Day! Dedicating this post to my awesome Dad @malcpryce ... Pilot, footballer, bad joke teller, keeper of the family mythology, & all round badass... Love you Dad! His jokes have become legendary, & I blame him entirely for my terrible sense of humour 😋 A couple of classics are “Why did the flamingo stand on one leg?” “Because, if it didn’t, it’d fall over” (seriously, that tickles me every time 🤣), and “What’s the difference between a duck?” “One of it’s legs is both the same” (Yes, I know, I don’t get it either 🤷‍♀️). Go on, you know you want to... Share your favourite ‘Dad joke’ with me 😁 .
I went with a half lotus variation of Upward Facing Intense Stretch, or Urdhva Mukha Paschimottanasana for Day 9 of #BornToBeQueens & our any seated pose category 🌸

Yogi down! I don’t know what’s up with me, but I feel like poo 😢 It’s kind of lucky that it’s my rest day, as I was planning on having the calorie burn of a sloth anyway 🤷‍♀️ There’s a busy few days ahead with classes to teach, & my first one on one handstanding class (eeek! super excited!), so any healing vibes gratefully received! 🙏 I must admit, I’m rubbish at being poorly... Quite frankly, I just think it’s completely unacceptable. ‘Man flu’ has nothing on me... 😅 Whiiich I’m guessing means it’s sometimes the Universe’s way of telling me to slow the hell down & practice that whole acceptance thing. Our energy levels, & how we feel in sooo many ways constantly change, & being ok with it, & going with the flow is all part of trying to live a yogic life. But, don’t you half miss those days when being sick was all ‘Mum making a fuss’ & chicken soup & sandwiches?? 😂 .
Tomorrow brings us Day 8 of #BornToBeQueens with any pose on the floor, & I chose a revolved Bow Pose variation 👍

Some of you asked me about what my set up for taking photos is, so here you go! I warn you, it’s not glamorous in the slightest! 😋 It’s just me, my iPhone, a tripod & the smallest space you can imagine at the end of my living room... After I’ve moved pictures, Cara’s toys, & possibly, a cat. I don’t use a video to get stills from, mostly because of space... Plus, I just reckon that if I can’t hold a pose long enough to get a shot off, then it never really happened 😂 ‘Shoot day’ is currently Friday, spilling over to Sunday in case of emergencies (i.e if I hate all my shots)... This happens frequently... 😅 So, I set up the two lights I bought off of eBay, get the timer set up (photo timer+ by the way), & the entire family hides in sheer terror... Unless they hear a crash (& possibly a swear word), when they nervously ask if I’m ok 👍 What’s your photo taking routine like?
.
Day 7 of #BornToBeQueens is a standing pose, & I feel like I may have gone a bit rogue... Does a Frooze count?? .

⭐️ #TriYogaSchool ⭐️ This month we are building up to Side Crow, & the next pose in our progressions is Pendant Pose, or Lolasana 🎓 Lolasana strengthens the abdominal muscles, wrists, arms, shoulders & upper back. 🎓
Lolasana Alignment Cues: #omniyogagirltips
1. Hands are shoulder width apart, & actively pushing the floor away
2. Straighten the arms, & angle them forwards, so the shoulders come past the wrists
3. Hug the elbows towards each other
4. Round the back, as in ‘Cat pose’
5. Pull the belly button back towards the spine, & draw up the pelvic floor - The bandhas are strongly engaged
6. Keep the shoulders broad - Imagine wrapping them outwards, & down the back
7. Think ‘knees to chest’ & squeeze the heels up towards the hips
8. Picture yourself squeezing everything up, & towards the midline
🎓
Don’t forget to check in with Helen & CeCe for all their tips on Lolasana

As some of you know, I’m really into lucid dreaming. If you don’t know what lucid dreaming is, let me explain... It’s when you are aware you are dreaming, as you are dreaming. It’s an important spiritual practice for exploring your perception of reality, & becoming more ‘awake’ in everyday life. In lucid dreams you can fly, walk through a wall, mediate, meet aspects of yourself... & the whole time you’re aware that everything is a construct of your own mind, with none of the limitations of waking reality. I’ve been having a bit of a dry spell, but it finally broke! I decided that if I became lucid I would practice my handstands in the dream state (it’s not like I could get hurt, right!?). Sooo, woohoo! Realisation hits; I’m dreaming! I start trying to tuck jump into a handstand, just throwing myself around, & realise that, not only do I suck at it when I’m awake, I suck at it when I’m asleep too 😂

A funky, twisted triangle for Day 6 of #BornToBeQueens & our hamstring stretch category 👍 .

Things seem to have gone back to normal in the Large household 🤞 (I didn’t half laugh when I realised my full name would be Laura Large when I got married... I sound like I should be in a Mr Men book 😂) Anyhow, I thought it was a good time for an update on Cara’s diabetes... In her own words; “diabetes sucks”, & yup, it does. Especially when I give her a brownie that I haven’t realised has walnuts in... Cue Cara not being impressed. Of course, since she’s had the insulin for it, she has to eat the right amount of carbs that she’s had the injection for... Soooo, Mum to the rescue! I frantically try to work out how many carbs are in the brownie she hasn’t eaten, & work out how many biscuits I have to give her to take up the slack... Annnnd, I underestimate causing a slight hypo episode. End result, haribo saves the day, & I get Cara rolling her eyes at me 🤣 Phew! 😅 .
Tomorrow is Day 5 of #BornToBeQueens & any inversion - I had a play with a flirty leg chinstand... Possibly, not the funkiest in the world, but I like it! 😋

⭐️ How to do Super Solider Pose ⭐️ ➡️ Swipe to see how to get into a half lotus variation 👍 .
Super Solider Pose: #omniyogagirltips
1. Set up a forward fold, with the feet slightly wider than hip width apart
2. Come up on the tiptoes of the right foot, & hook the leg over your right shoulder. Get your leg as high up the arm as you can
3. Take the right hand BEHIND the right foot & place the fingertips on the mat. Extend the left arm out to the side, in FRONT of the left leg, so the arm is straight, & the fingertips are ahead of the line of your toes
4. Pick the left foot up, & bring it towards your right hip
5. Use the right hand to grab hold of the left foot... Make sure the right leg, is still connected to the right shoulder
6. To come into the full pose; straighten the standing leg fully & reach out with the left arm, keeping it engaged. Use your right hand to bring your left foot to rest on your right hip, & reach your left knee up to the ceiling. Keep the spine long, & the chest open as you rotate your torso to the left. .

Why did you get into yoga? Was it the physical side, or the spiritual aspect that first got you interested? It was pretty much a mix of both for me... I knew I had to do some sort of ‘keep fit’ thing (apparently sitting on your arse all day isn’t terribly good for you 😅), but the spirituality of yoga is what nailed it in the end. I’ve always been looking for something... Specifically, answers to life, the universe & everything would be nice (If you have them, please do feel free to share! 💁‍♀️)... It’s hard to explain, but I found a sort of home in yoga... & I mean all of yoga... Who knows, I might just find the anwers to all those questions after all... 🤔 .
Day 4 of #BornToBeQueens is a tip toe pose, & I went for a funky forward fold with a little cow face leg thrown in for good measure 🐮 .

Why on earth did I think my life was boring?!? Just goes to show that the universe DOES have a sense of humour 🤪 Well, in the last few days we’ve had Dad totalling his plane, birthday celebrations, & today my car totally died... It’s been on its last legs for a while, & we’ve been thinking about buying another, but today the decision was kinda made for us 🤷‍♀️ Check out the pic in my stories to meet the new addition to our family; Fi (please tell me you all name your cars too?!? 😂) I just need to have a lie down after spending all that money 😅 It’s been a hell of a few days, & I’m really sorry I’ve been a bit absent. Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit more normal (famous last words, right?!?) 🤞
.
Tomorrow brings us Day 3 of #BornToBeQueens & any balance pose... I couldn’t resist going with an arm balance, so tried out a half lotus peacock variation 😁 .
