Day 9 of #invertforjoy is lotus....oh lotus and I are not friends...especially tonight lol I couldnโ€™t make any full lotus inversion work and not for lack of trying and all the hip stretching in the world ๐Ÿ™„ so half lotus headstand it is! @tiny.kirsty @chelseasyoga @alexzandrapeters @coffeeandrainbows @aloyoga @alo.moves

Day 8 of #invertforjoy is straight legs inversion...I was so worn out from such a FABULOUS class by @devonlynea @hot8yoga this morning I couldnโ€™t hold my forearm balance for longer than it took to take this pic ๐Ÿ˜‚ I earned my #savasana! Thatโ€™s Devon for designing that class just for me ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Thanks to hosts @tiny.kirsty @chelseasyoga @alexzandrapeters @coffeeandrainbows Sponsors @alo.moves @aloyoga Oh and I LOVE my new Alo pants I got to practice in this morning ๐Ÿ™Œ

Day 7 of #invertforjoy is #staglegs I can do this variation in headstand and forearm stand pretty consistently but not handstand so thought Iโ€™d focus there today...full intention to use the wall here but didnโ€™t have to!๐Ÿคฉ only able to hang for 10 seconds but this was huge for me! ๐Ÿ™Œ These challenges always push me farther...never done one where I havenโ€™t seen growth โค๏ธ Thank you Hosts @chelseasyoga @coffeeandrainbows @alexzandrapeters @tiny.kirsty Sponsors @aloyoga @alo.moves #yogaeverydamnday #caliyoga #practice #sweateverydamnday #inversion #handstandpractice #growth

December in Pasadena ๐Ÿ˜ Sarah ruined me for all other sushi ๐Ÿฃ Only got one picture of the sushi since I was busy having foodgasams ๐Ÿ˜‚ then Afters Icecream ๐Ÿฆ Perfect Thursday night ๐Ÿ™Œ #california #pasadena #itsdecember #sushi๐Ÿฃ #holidaytime #doubledate

So it rained here the past few day and it REALLY rained! Unfortunately mudslides in the burn areas too โ˜น๏ธ but snow in the mountains! Can you see in the first picture!! Our pool is at capacity tho ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Back to gorgeous weather today and top is back down for my car ๐Ÿ™Œ #california #itsdecember #californiarain

Day 6 of #invertforjoy is fish legs. This was harder than I thought lol once I was upside down my legs got all confused ๐Ÿ˜‚ always fun to laugh upside down ๐Ÿ™ƒ @chelseasyoga @tiny.kirsty @coffeeandrainbows @alexzandrapeters @aloyoga @alo.moves

Day 5 of #invertforjoy is splits. The thing about splits for me is I have a decent split with the weight of my body helping....not so much inverted and thatโ€™s ok something to works towards as always! Itโ€™s raining here today which is so rare here....since June when we moved itโ€™s rained four times! So I love a little rain ๐Ÿ˜Š but it moved me inside where itโ€™s hard to get a full frame of my split but you get the idea ๐Ÿ˜˜ Happy Wednesday! Thank you hosts @alexzandrapeters @coffeeandrainbows @chelseasyoga @tiny.kirsty Sponsors @alo.moves @aloyoga #yogaeverydamnday #inversion #splits #yogasocal #california #instayogafam
