I’m a better climber because of yoga! (AND.... I’m a stronger yogi because I climb. Because climbing builds upper body, core and overall strength!). 💙 In this boulder problem being able to high step at the beginning - both left and right sides (get my heel/foot up above my hip and transfer weight to it) makes the whole route much easier. This flexibility is 100% from yoga. Think about all that hip opening work!! 💙 .

Does yoga help you with other sports and activities?? Please share ⬇️⬇️⬇️!!!

Saw this cool shape on the gram and since I was in Seattle with my mini twin and #igfriend @laraliam we had to play for a few minutes after our Yoga Therapeutics Training with @90monkeys @amyippoliti (this is what we were doing next door!) 😅❤️. .
.
NO we did not learn this in class. YES I placed my head properly for (a lightly supported) headstand Amy (!!) 👍🏻❤️! And YES we had fuuuuun! That’s the point right?? .
.
Note: you must be willing to get close to your partner for this one!! 😂. HUGE thanks to Jenna @jennarationyoga for the art direction and the 📷 pic!! ❤️

Last day in Seattle with the amazing, super skilled, funny (and same sized!) @amyippoliti and @90monkeys doing the Yoga Therapeutics Training Module. I’ve learned so much it will take a while to untangle it all but I’m excited to share with my students both in groups and 1-on-1. Yesterday we talked thighs and hamstrings and so many ppl think (or believe 🤨) they have tight hamstrings and there’s no remedy. NOT TRUE!! 🤩 I’m adding to my hammy tool kit and I’ll share ASAP!! But it’s great to know I’ve been doing a lot of things already that will help and now I have mooooore tools to share!! This includes how to help you with an injured hamstring (not from my classes I hope!!). I’m so excited 🎶 (insert song!) - can you tell??! ❤️
.
.
Side benefit: @laraliam is here!! Her YogalabNW is hosting the training - and she encouraged me to attend. Thank you Lara!! 😘❤️

This took a few (or more!) tries and had me sweating!! I saw @yogamand post this not long ago and she had seen @blue_yagoo do a full reclined variation (check her out - she’s amazing !!) and then @adellbridges share a half frog variation (also very pretty - take a look!!). It looks challenging and you know I loooove a challenge. She even had a video sharing how she got into this shape for #YogisSeeYogisDo ❤️ !! So I saved it. 😆 Then I saw @yogaandchaigirl sharing this shape again for #yogihowdyoudothatfridays and referring back to Drea and of course I saved it -again 😆!! Holly also mentioned it was tricky. So you knooooow I love tricky challenges!! Finally, couple weeks later, when I was good and very WARM, I tried it out!! I will not share the video of how I got into this pose bc it’s very very (very) awkward, but I will say I started on my stomach to grab my foot and flip my hand (only if it’s ok on ur wrist!) and there was a lot of awkward giggling and wiggling and grunting to roll back over and to roll my shoulders under and lift my heart 😅. And yes it’s tricky and hard and I was sweating. BUT once I got settled it’s actually a great quad stretch, heart opener, hammy stretch, AND asymmetrical balance challenge!! Note: you can get ALL this benefit from many other asanas!! ❤️
.
.
If you want to try, please head on over to @yogamand s page for the how to video!! Thx Drea!! 😘❤️
.

SWIPE TO SEE HOLLY AND ANDREA and what I was trying to copy!! 😅❤️

Day 12 EXTRA (outtake!!) 😭 LAST DAY #AlphaPosings ⠀⠀
Where YOU pick the pose as we spell out the challenge name!! ❤️ .
.⠀
Before @cece.carson told me I could do ONE handed or ONE footed anything for the letter O 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ I was playing around with making an O!!! Inspired by @ania_75 (hers is gorgeous - go see!!) here’s a lil EXTRA fun for a super fun challenge. Thx Cece 😂 ❤️
.⠀⠀
.⠀
Honestly this is one of the most fun challenges I’ve ever hosted. ❤️ And it’s because everyone had so much fun with the freedom to get creative evvvveryday! There was so much laughter, silliness and inspiration along the way. That’s what yoga is all about to me. Not some perfect shape but mindful movement of the body plus a laugh or two 😆!! And I even learned some new Sanskrit asanas (I need that 2100 asanas book!!)!! You all made the last 12 days a blast!! Thank you for your willingness to JUST DO YOU and cheer each other on! I’m truly sad we are done (for now!). You all are winners ...so much love to you all 🎉❤️🙏🏻

I’m a stronger yogi because I climb. And I’m a better climber because of yoga! Do you want to see your yoga practice progress?? If so you have to add weight bearing activities! 💙 what do you do in addition to yoga?? Share ⬇️⬇️⬇️!! .
.
Today I’m at Yoga Therapeutics Training in #seattle (this was yesterday!!) with the amazing @amyippoliti @90monkeys hosted by YogaLabNW. And we talked about the need to activate the muscles to maximize the strength and energy needed to sustain asanas. Because if you keep trying to go deeper by ‘softening’ you will find over time more of a tightening rather than deepening of your practice. So do what works for YOU, but be sure to include strength training in your weekly exercise plan. Or as Amy said: get to the gym bc it will do wonders for your yoga practice!! 😆
