The least back bendy handstand with stag legs evvver (bc I'm trying for lumbar stability, as my low back is not happy right now ...πŸ€”?!) but I just wanna play on my @kimberscanes and it's #toetaptuesday and I didn't feel worse afterwards ...don't tell my dr 😜!! He said no seated forward folding sooo, ya...I'm open for sciatica advice: rest, ice/heat, gentle stretching, hanging inversions, anti inflammatories ...what?! #healthybodieshappyminds #patienceiskey #patienceishard #givingthanks always β€οΈπŸ™πŸ»

Final day ....that was fast 😱... Day 10 #healthybodieshappyminds - incredible lead host @rhyannawatson πŸ’«β€οΈ brings you forward folds (I can't πŸ˜‚...my low back πŸ’₯), conscious breathing and the fearless mudra (see @ettlivstyle for a description and great closeup of how to make the fearless heart mudra I'm using πŸ‘ŒπŸ»β€οΈ). I've had to modify my practice this week due to low back discomfort so instead of forward fold I'm sharing a bit of my aerial silks spinal decompression flow. The inversion helps my mood and energy level - I had to edit out much of my hanging and breathing (bc boring πŸ˜‚) but it feels soooo good and it's great for spinal health!! ❀️ And, yes my face gets red when I invert...bc blood flow...but it's all good! ❀️ Speedy 6x -REAL time!! ❀️ Thank you all for sharing your practices with us and spreading good vibes, positive energy and resources around the world 🌎!! Even though the challenge is over, know that we are here for YOU and that YOU matter! YOU are loved ❀️!Thanks to my super supportive and wise cohosts:

Day 8 πŸŽ‰β€οΈ Meet the queen of inversions - #headstand or #sirsasana. I'm the lead host today for #healthybodieshappyminds and I'm sharing my fav inversion, #boundheadstand. Standing on your head in proper alignment not only strengthens the whole body but calms the brain. The bind is safer for your neck as the vast majority of your weight is resting in your forearms (versus tripod). Lace your fingers together and set the forearms on the floor, elbows at shoulder width. Roll the upper arms slightly outward, but press the inner wrists firmly into the floor. Set the crown/top of your head on the floor. If you're newer to bound headstand, press the bases of your palms together and snuggle the back of your head against the clasped hands. More experienced students can open their hands and place the back of the head into the open palms. Soften the fingers. Continue to press shoulder blades against the back, widen them, and draw them ⬆️ toward the tailbone. Keep the weight evenly balanced on the two forearms. It's also essential that your tailbone continues to lift upward. AND try using a corner to lift and gently lower weight to top of head. Build hold time up to 3-5min!
Benefits: Calms the brain and helps relieve stress and mild depression. Stimulates the pituitary and pineal gland. Strengthens the arms, legs, and spine. Tones the abdominal organs. Improves digestion. Helps relieve the symptoms of menopause. Therapeutic for asthma, infertility, insomnia, and sinusitis. .
See Merediths post from Day 1 for a full description of the benefits of getting your hips over your heart (any inversion) for an even bigger boost for a HAPPY MIND!! Ask us questions, share your stories...we are here for you!! ❀️

A quick #pike #press in #pinchamayurasana (@eileendelatorre ❀️) bc #forearmfriday and fits in with #healthybodieshappyminds for me today! Why, because I've been sidelined with some low back/sciatica pain this week during our challenge and lumbar (really any backbending or deep forward folding) work has not been possible. My knee jerk reaction was to feel angry and frustrated, but this week we are celebrating healthy bodies and happy minds and I had to take notes from my cohosts. Only very gentle yoga (which felt amazing!), ice, rest and acunpunture. And it's working. Felt good enough the last two days to get back on the #rockwall. My point is if you let a certain level of practice, shape or skill define you you're losing perspective on the whole of your yoga practice...which is hundreds of shapes linked together with breath that bring you on a journey towards greater awareness and presence! Sure it's fun to work advanced skills, but they are such a small part of the whole. This week has been both humbling and eye opening, physically and emotionally. So here's a straight up (no lumbar) #pincha and I'm great with it!! 6x/real Time!!

Day 3 #healthybodieshappyminds ❀️ I am the lead host and I bring you lotus #padmasana and shoulderstand #sarvangasana ❀️
_
Lotus is an archetypal yoga posture. The arrangement of your hands and feet in the pose resembles the petals of a lotus flowerβ€”the blossom that grows from its base in the mud to rest above the water and open to the sun. The image is a metaphor for the unfolding process of yoga. When you begin yoga...you are rooted in the mud as part of the mundane world. But as you progress, you can grow into a blooming flower. Lotus is kind of a 'superpose' and can lead to both a healthier MIND and BODY! Why... because it opens up the hips (often where we hold stress), stretches the ankles and knees, calms the brain, increases awareness and attentiveness, helps develop better posture, can ease menstrual discomfort and sciatica pain, stimulates the spine, pelvis, abdomen, and bladder, and restores energy levels. If you have tight hips or knee issues #sukasana or easy pose (sitting crosslegged), or half lotus are JUST AS GOOD. I'm sharing a flow to prep hips, ADductors and ABductors for lotus (note: don't force full lotus ever!). Once in lotus, or a lotus variation sit and breathe and hold for up to 10 min for max benefits. Then, to add a little more you might take your lotus to an inversion. Here I share shoulderstand. See Merediths post from Day 1 for a full description of the benefits of getting your hips over your heart (any inversion) for an even bigger boost for a HAPPY MIND!! Ask us questions, share your stories...we are here for you!! ❀️
