Wow! The top pic is from the first challenge I ever did, letsgetsplitsy. I was sweating and felt like i was dying! The bottom one certainly isn't perfect but its much better. I feel a lot stronger and I'm more aware of proper alignment now. Thank you for all you taught us ladies, I have enjoyed it so much! @carrot_bowl_bonnie @ettlivstyle @susanbishopyoga @supermomtraci and thanks to the sponsors: @fantoo20 @gingerwitchbotanical @kosusaofficial @dontmesswithganesh i will miss #longerstrongersplits ๐Ÿ˜“

#hannahsyearofyoga day 257

DAY 3 - #LongerStrongerSplits!! #UpavisthaKonasana #WideLegForwardFold .
๐Ÿ”ฅListen๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿผin to hear the instructions and try prepping on your back, low back grounded, in a Happy Baby variation and then wide legs on your back, with or without straps. ๐Ÿ”ฅThen try seated with straps if you can't grab your toes. If you don't have straps, wrap a towel around your feet! Get creative! .
๐Ÿ”ฅFind some movement but then see if you can push into the straps, tightening your quads by thinking of lifting your kneecaps, then relax your legs to stretch. Hold the squeeze for 5 breaths and then relax. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
โœ–๏ธCheck out @ettlivstyle to continue to the next level. After that, @susanbishopyoga and @supermomtraci!
___________________
โฃThis ALL levels challenge will challenge YOU to CHANGE your stretching strategy...and here's how: .
โœ–๏ธ1st - clarify the joint position.
โœ–๏ธ2nd - reciprocal stretching. When the proper muscles contract (agonist), the bones align and the reciprocal muscle (antagonist) stretches and relaxes. .
โœ–๏ธ3rd - longer holds.
โœ–๏ธ4th - REPEAT day 1 before day 2, day 1 & 2 before day 3, etc.
____________________
โฃEach day we will share 1 asana and teach how to incorporate warm ups, repetitions, facilitated stretch strengthening, and long holds for 3-5 min.
___________________
โฃWe are using techniques developed by Dr Ray Long in his book, Hip Openers and Forward Bends.
____________________
โฃTake a quick picture ๐Ÿ“ธ of your current splits IF YOU HAVEN'T YET and SAVE it so on Day 10 you can see ๐Ÿ‘€ your progress ๐ŸŽ‰!

Just read the caption...I was so discombobulated this morning ๐Ÿ˜ณ
๐Ÿ”ฅDay 6 #LongerStrongerSplits Gate/Side Plank! You are all doing so great! So many people are finding more comfort as they stretch! Remember, this is a process and it is normal to be stiff the next day as you open up even if it is only a little bit. Make sure you warm up and do the previous day before moving forward! Check out Bonnie, Meredith, and Susan before me๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป. As you move into side plank, be mindful not to sink into your supporting shoulder. Keep your chest and hips lifted and core engaged. Stretching and opening the side body allows you to keep your hips more square when you come back to splits๐Ÿ™‚. (I mention TFL in the video and that refers to the Tensor Fasciae Latae which lies along the side of your quad and attaches to the Iliotibial band. It assists in hip flexion and abduction and tends to be tight in most people.) Gentle exercises in side plank will help strengthen your core and thereby improve your postural awareness in splits. ๐ŸŒŸHostesses

My final attempt at #Hanumanasana for #LongerStrongerSplits Day 10. I always knew this would be a grainy night time shot as the days are just packed with kiddies on school hols! I haven't checked my progress pic yet from day 1 to 10 but I'm thinking they won't look much different ๐Ÿ˜ฌHowever...I FEEL 100 x different in this pose! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‰There's some ease here that I've not only never felt before, but actually never dreamed I would, and this feeling encourages me to keep at it ๐Ÿค“ Maybe to add 2 different warm up poses to my practise every day and run through the whole flow once or twice a week?! What are you other participants thinking of going forward with your splits practise? Plus any Host recommendations for keeping our practise up?! Talking of Hosts...thank you so so much for a brilliant education on the splits, deeply appreciate all the effort you put into making this series @carrot_bowl_bonnie @ettlivstyle @susanbishopyoga @supermomtraci โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธand thanks Sponsors @fantoo20 @kosusaofficial @gingerwitchbotanical @dontmesswithganesh ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Another #forwardfold using Dr. Ray Long's book. The one on left was after an hour of practice and i can now see that my lower back is strained. The one today was after a 10-15 min session . Even though my nose is not touching the knees but my lower back looks so much better and I didnt feel any strain on my back #uttanasana #longerstrongersplits Thanks to @carrot_bowl_bonnie @supermomtraci @susanbishopyoga @ettlivstyle

Day 8 of #LongerStrongerSplits!! I love this stretch. Thank you for all of the variations. I never would have thought of the end with the straight leg on the toes and the bend/straighten. It made such a difference. โฃ๏ธOur superstar hosts ๐ŸŒŸ@ettlivstyle

Monday is the day of @vanessmorh9 and me ๐Ÿ‘ฏ It is always a highlight of Mondays to be mentioned in her post ๐Ÿ–ค It's so wonderful to go this journey together .
The last days I repeat the exercises of the very instructive challenge #longerstrongersplits Today I watched the video of day 5 by lovely @carrot_bowl_bonnie (I love her smile so much ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ–ค) She showed a #standingforwardfold variation modified with bent knees. But it was still hard for me to keep the belly with my thights connected. Uuh, I hate and love the #forwardfold

Day 25 of #SplitsAdventure hosted by @cyogalab is floating #splits or #hanumanasana ๐ŸŒฑ I couldn't quite figure out how to get my arms right to lift the front leg so I used my block for the assist. .

Aaaahhh! You guys! So this just happened...
ยท
I got on my mat and decided to revisit some of the poses we worked on in #LongerStrongerSplits a little while back. Not really expecting a whole lot of change. And then this!!!
ยท
It's by no means perfect with my right hip staying up, but the left touched the ground!! Even the second time around (because, of course, I had to make sure it wasn't a fluke...) ๐Ÿ˜‰
ยท
In the end, I think it was more abouy trusting my body and finding my breath in the movement that got me down. Massive credit goes to these amazing ladies though: @carrot_bowl_bonnie @susanbishopyoga @ettlivstyle

Thanks Jess for my bundle of goodies @gingerwitchbotanical
What a lovely package to come home to. I had a nice morning in the sun arranging my new meditation stones with lavender and ferns, flowers from the garden. Also, admiring the beautiful necklace piece, can't wait to try out the bath salts. The relax oil is DIVINE!
What a beautiful & generous gift. Thank you so much! X

#reversetriangle is one of those "love/hate" poses that I'm trying to improve.

I met my client at the park and he said he was disappointed not to find me in a "crazy back bend with the leg up in the air" .... I laughed and rolled my eyes, then got into position ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ“ท #oknowyourturn

Early morning at the hotel, so thought I manage to catch up with the #letsstartyogachallenge here's day 3 and splits. A little improvement after I did the #longerstrongersplits challenge. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜€ Hosts @yogaluls @daniellenicolebrown @saarahruth @maireee_kate

Day 3 of #letsstartyogachallenge is the splits! Or #hanumanasana I was hoping I would have better form here from the previous #longerstrongersplits challenge but it really makes a difference that I haven't continued performing those stretches I learned ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

I know and love this #hamstringstretch since the #LongerStrongerSplits challenge. That remembers me to work also at my splits ๐Ÿ˜… "What is your favorite flower?" It is changing all the time. First sunflowers, then for a long time white roses. At the moment it is grape hyacinth. It is so little but also extraordinary ๐Ÿ’œ

This Mornings quick flow (not a flow just doing what ever really!)๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜thing before rushing out again ๐Ÿ˜‘ when all I wanna do is stay home and do yoga ๐Ÿ˜
But what's super cool..to me! .. is my #urdhvaprasaritaekapadasana #standingboundsplits it's a tad wobbly and not very straight but is still cool ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm sure this has become achievable thanks to the #longerstrongersplits challenge I'll be practicing this one more often ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– #yoga #love #yogaforlife #yogaflow #workout #breathe

Day 9 #LongerStrongerSplits!! ๐ŸŽ‰โค๏ธ QUADS

Still finishing this one!!!๐Ÿ˜… That exercise to find the engagement in the hamstrings was tough but great!!! The wall variation really showed me the pretty big difference between the right and left sides in my hips and quads.
