One of the most important things to remember in doing an inversion such as this is that, in order to go up, you must ground yourself down. πŸ™ƒ it's very applicable in life also, don't you think? #yogaeverydamnday #yogaanywhere #yogaeverywhere #yogitriathlete #inversionsmakemehappy #forearmstand #pinchamayurasana

"Home"... for me, it's not at all where I live, sleep, eat. It's a feeling that comes and goes. And I finally realized that I have been and will be forever chasing home. 🎈To me, that's exciting. 🎈

Day 18 of #DontCallMeBaby with @cyogalab and its #VerticalSplits twist in an asymmetrical #forearmbalance or #ParsvaUrdhvaPrasaritaEkaPadasana in #pinchamayurasana .
Oh YAY. Another halfway hold.πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘
I interrupted each attempt (and believe me... there were MANY attempts here😀πŸ˜₯πŸ™ˆ) to hold up my grazed and painful elbow as evidence of my bravery to the photog who was pretending to not understand my sign language and/or extreme bravery 😒😒😒
Seriously. 😨😨😨 But it actually DID start to get a bit easier with the whole "control the leg" thing after the 98th time (I am exaggerating. SlightlyπŸ˜‰πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ)

I've had a few bad days but now it's getting better and it's Friday so I have my hubby home all weekend ❀️woohoo πŸ™πŸ»
Today it was dark and rainy outside so I took Lily with me and did a little #forearmfriday flow.
Love this little girl so much! β€οΈπŸ™πŸ»

πŸ‘ΆπŸ­πŸΌ Day 1️⃣8️⃣ of #DontCallMeBaby with @cyogalab ➑️ #Vertical #Splits Twist in Asymmetrical #ForearmBalance or #ParsvaUrdhvaPrasaritaEkaPadasana in #PinchaMayurasana variant πŸΌπŸ­πŸ‘Ά Except for the Twisting Scissors day, we haven’t covered much twists so, these following 3 days are all about that. Don’t be fooled thinking they’re easier than Lotus, Garudasana or Transversal Splits. Often times people find them harder to balance because the spinal rotation makes the hips turn too and, where the hips go, everything goes. That circumference (navel-sacrum-navel) determines your position upside down. A few degrees more to the right/left and your #inversion will be crooked (or you’ll fall), a little too much anterior or posterior tilt and you’ll fall into the wall or back where you came from. Twisting the hips is like walking on the edge of a knife when it comes to balancing. It can also affect the shoulder foundation, after all, the body is intricately connected so, if your torso is turning, chances are the shoulders will too (unless you stay really focused and keep pressing into the floor to avoid it, which is what you should do!). If this β€˜asymmetrical’ version is over the top, feel free to practice regular Pincha and, after some warm up, start to turn the body, keeping one leg projecting towards the ceiling as the other lowers to the opposite elbow (or hand, like I’m doing in the pic). When you do it at the wall, keep the contact heel-wall and don’t lose it, regardless how low the other leg gets. Lift that one back up and repeat on the other side. The #Splits will help you and you’ll likely twist better/easier than if you were just turning the body with both legs reaching up (tomorrow’s pose, hence the reason why I placed this one before). More ideas coming up, to be sure, so we can keep working at this!!! Stay tuned!

WOOHOO love that Kukku variant. It felt almost easy compared to the full version of Urdhva Kukkutasana. I’m so much behind in this challenge but I hope I can make up for it over the weekend. Don’t want to flood all your feeds so I will spread them a bit πŸ˜‰.

Full lotus in Pincha is not available for me yet. I found out that - although I can get into lotus while upside down my fear of falling out before I get out of the lotus and the risk of a severe injury is stronger than my will to get it. So I went with the half lotus variation which is a challenge already. I had to move and wriggle a lot to get that foot into my groin. I was pooped 🀣.

Have you all a great Friday βœŒπŸΌπŸ˜ŽπŸŽ‰.

I'm behind on the yoga challenge because I've needed rest. This challenge is demanding and I'm slowly starting to give myself permission to pull back. This is the hardest part for me. And it's reflective of my whole life, not just the poses on the mat. ...knowing when to push and when to let go. It's a balancing act. This is yoga. ☯️
Sharing day 15 of #yogachallenge #dontcallmebaby from @cyogalab practicing #forearmbalance or #pinchamayurasana. Practicing pressing up and coming down slowly to build the muscles needed for the press. I'm kind of thinking the forearm press isn't in the cards for me because I can't get my weight overhead like I do in headstand. Next stop is to practice with blocks under my toes to see if that helps. #slowandsteady #thisisyoga βœŒοΈπŸ’•

#Urdhvakukkutasana or #karandavasana variant. What an energizing posture in #lotus I couldn't lift my #buttasana off the ground to hike the leg above the elbowπŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚

So thankful for my week of hands-on assists training @laughinglotusny- but I am SPENT! Soooo...taking the modification for #dontcallmebaby Day 18 with my head on the floor. #vertical #splits Twist in Asymmetrical #forearmbalance or #parsvaurdhvaprasaritaekapadasana in #pinchamayurasana will have to wait until I'm back at the studio & don't have to worry about downstairs meighbors....in the event of a wipeout! 😳πŸ’₯ Thanks @cyogalab & @elementofsri πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’• #yogapose #poseoftheday #yogainspiration #yogagirl #yogastrong #yogalove #myyogalife #sirsasana #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeverywhere #yogafit #igyoga #yogisofinstagram #nycyoga #yogapants @noliyoga #yogamat #livesankalpa #practiceandalliscoming #yogafun #keepitreal #keepitfun πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Day18 of #DontCallMeBaby with fabulous host @cyogalab #Vertical #Splits Twist in #PinchaMayurasana Asymmetrical #ForearmBalance or #parsvaurdhvaprasaritaekadasana in #sirsasana or #Headstand πŸΌπŸ­πŸ‘ΆNot happening in Pincha. I did manage to get the one arm straight, but then the split leg wouldn't split. Not at all. Can't get legs up with arm variation, can't get leg down with arm variation in Pincha. Many variations of not finding the pose. So here it is in headstand. #yogachallenge #yogaeverydamnday #yoga #yogaeveryday #yogainspiration #yogapractice #yogajourney #yogaathome #yogadaily #yogaforlife #yogaaddict #yogajunkie #yogagirl #igyoga #asana #practice #inversion #yogalove #namaste

This clip shows two movements I'm working on. Pinch a press and lift up from #karandavasana aka #climbingmounteverest .
Using a strap around the upper arms was a great help. What are you working on??? β€οΈπŸ™πŸΌ

Day 5 of #powerfullygraceful is #pinchamayurasana πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Don't let this picture fool you, I landed on my face multiple times and had to screen shot a video of my doing this because I cant hold it long enough to wait for a self timer πŸ˜‚ One of the reasons I love yoga so much is because there is ALWAYS room to grow. Lucky for me, I'm just getting started ✌🏼

day 10: forearm stand (pincha mayurasana) πŸ€ΈπŸ½β€β™€οΈ final day of #JadeB2S πŸ€— after a 5 mile walk with my mom, thank god we found this wall πŸ˜‚ needed the extra support ❀️ thank you @jadeyogamats for the fun challenge πŸ‘πŸ½

This was very hard for me today and I was lucky to get this one pic.

My best attempt at #pinchamayurasana with half "lotus legs"... if that's what you can call this πŸ˜‚#Lotus really is not a favorite of mine, I have a hard time positioning my legs in it just when sitting. But, at the beginning of this challenge I couldn't even imagine doing anything funky with my legs while in pincha, so I'll count it as a win. Just gotta keep practicing 🀞🏻

Trying out some new pincha variations πŸ™πŸ»
When it comes to forearm stands, I am not consistent in my practice. There are many falls and normally as soon as I change the position of my legs I topple over.
BUT today I had a little breakthrough 😁 and was able to stay up mid transition! Finally starting to understand my body and feel the centre of mass shifting.
Little progresses make me happy πŸ’š

Happy Birthday to ME!! Hard work pays off, even if it's against the wall, with props. Super thrilled to have achieved #pinchamayurasana today, one of my 2017 goal poses! Next step - cleaning it up. πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

Happy Forearm Friday! Wanted to show progress on my scorpion pose, always working towards it πŸ¦‚β€οΈ my goal is not to touch my head though. I mean, I guess it would be cool. But why would a scorpion sting itself in the head? That's silly. No, my goal is to move away from the wall. And I'm getting there!!! πŸŽ‰πŸ¦‚πŸ’ƒπŸ» today when I hopped up I held myself for a second and coming away from the wall I held for a couple more seconds πŸ€— ______________________________________

Thank you to @jadeyogamats for hosting this challenge. It's been fun! Day 10 is forearm stand. This is as good as it gets-but it's progress! My shoulders are much more open than the first time I attempted this arm balance.
