Favorite down dog split in my favorite spot for this pose. πŸ’—πŸš‚ Clear blue skies in Seattle today for the first time in a few weeks. The smoke has finally cleared!

Stop sign splits. πŸ’œ Sometimes the environment I'm in inspires a pose.

Framed by the trees. 🌲😊 I took a walk this afternoon with a few of my favorite people on this path - so close to my home yet I'd never been down it. It goes on for miles and miles. Can't wait to explore it more.

I love perspectives that are interesting - symmetrical and maybe even a bit confusing. ❀️ I saw this same angle shot by the beautiful and talented @findorion and wanted to give it a try. The pose is ghomukhasana, a deep hip opener.

#AugustAsanas Day 10 is Natarajasana or Dancer's Pose. πŸ’— This is a beautiful heart opener that also stretches the hip flexors, the hamstrings on the standing leg, strengthens the arch on the standing foot, opens the shoulder(s), expands the chest and front body and strengthens the back body. This pose is also great for concentration and balance.
Here are some tips to help you with the pose. 1. Stand upright in mountain pose. Shift your weight onto one foot and bend the opposite foot at the knee, bringing your heel up toward your seat. Engage the standing leg by feeling all four corners of your foot pressing into the floor. Engage the quadriceps and draw the knee cap up. 2. Grab the inside edge (arch or ankle) of the foot with the hand on the same side of the body as the bent leg. (I'm grabbing lower to extend my top leg straighter. This is how my anatomy works - everyone is different!) 😘 3. Lengthen your tailbone down and engage your core. Begin to push your foot into your hand so it rises up behind and away from you. Keep your left knee hugging in towards your midline and not out to the side. As your foot rises up, tilt your torso forward, maintaining a lift through your chest. 4. Extend your opposite arm forward or up, perhaps finding a mudra that suits you. 5. Remember to breathe.
Modify or intensify as you see fit! Use a strap or a towel if reaching your foot or ankle is challenging. Maybe take an overhead grip with one hand or two. 😊

Check in with @coffeeandrainbows tomorrow evening for day 11.

Hazy heart openers. ❀️ It's been over a week of haze in Seattle caused by smoke from fires after a long stretch of dry, hot weather. The air quality is suffering but it's so hard to stay inside when it's summer and sunny. And, although toxic, the ethereal glow the haze is creating is beautiful.

Working on my tricep strength πŸ’ͺ🏻😊 The first time I tried to get into this position, I was surprised at how hard it was. I ended up doing it few times and my triceps were sore for a week at least. I use this shape (or something like it) to strengthen my triceps and it's been much easier to sustain. Wearing @aloyoga from the new fall line - I love this color so much! πŸ“· by @tateenglund just outside @pure8hotyoga πŸ’™πŸ™πŸ» #aloyoga #beagoddess #strong #stretch #brick #getoutside #yoga #flexible #fit #fitfashion #challenge #asana #namaste #healthylife #healthyliving #pnw #pacificnorthwest #pnwlife
