In exercise physiology, the principle of "adaptation" refers to the process of the body getting accustomed to a particular exercise or training program through repeated exposure. Essentially, it states that you get good at whatever you practice. No surprise.β €
β €
What is less obvious is that the principle of adaptation applies to logical, emotional, and spiritual processes as well. Even less obvious than that, it also applies to things you practice even when you don't know that you are practicing them, and it even applies to practices of omission - you get better at not doing what you don't do.β €
β €
Quit whenever things get hard? You get better at quitting. Freak out whenever things don't go your way? You get better at freaking out. Don't pay attention when you're the first person in line in the left turn lane? You get better and better and better at being a jackass.β €

Hello friends! There are so many simple yet powerful ways to sneak in core work, increased strength and functional range of motion into your asana practice. When you slow down and refine your movements, not only do you do all of the above, you also create more body awareness and you make your practice time more efficient. It's a smart way to move.
.
So looking at three legged downdog, a transition or posture you'll find in nearly any active vinyasa class, there's gold here if you only reach for it. This isn't a yes/no post because opening the hip (left photo) to externally rotate can feel delicious and it can be useful if done intentionally.
.
However, if you're looking to increase strength and flexibility and seriously upgrade your core, keeping the hips square when you lift a leg--shoulders and hips pointing towards the earth, neutral lengthened spine--will do wonders!
.
Keeping the hips square requires the hamstring in the bottom leg to stretch stronger (not longer) and the hamstring on the lifted leg to WORK. The top leg also then demand the psoas or hip flexors to stretch. The arms work just as in regular downdog, but the core does more to keep all this alignment on check. No, your leg won't lift as high and it doesn't look as pretty, but that's not the point of the pose.
.
If you're working toward a properly aligned splits, it starts here with every leg lift. If you're hypermobile and you need to build strength, this is the magic you need. If you are working toward handstand, this alignment is essential for kicking up with a stable core/spine and for holding.
.
Practicing the poses you're working toward is great too, but every little movement like this is truly what will help you refine and expand your practice. β€πŸ™ŒπŸ˜˜

Taking time away from a regular yoga practice due to injury or lack of time has been one of the most challenging burdens. Still, I am over joyed to return with an even greater sense of love, appreciation & humility. Yoga gave me the patience to wait out the hardship with a particular equanimity I would not have experienced otherwise. I can barely do chaturangas without the help of my knees or crescent pose without trembling and child's pose is much more enticing as a resting pose than downward dog. I'm embracing my 'beginners mind' and truly grateful I still have a healthy body that can carry me through this most auspicious dance. πŸ’žπŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸ»β€οΈπŸ•Š

There are many forms of meditation. Some use words, some use pictures, some use riddles, some use song. In vinyasa practice we use breath. But ultimately the idea is always the same -- hang your focus on one thing, let everything else disappear. The quieter you fall, the more you can hear.β €

"Your path should be seen like a lover. You're constantly thinking of them, constantly conjuring creative ways to please them. This yearning stems from our soul's desire to connect with what has been lost, and what has been lost is the knowledge that we are and always will be the love we seek."
