The @fthisishard #junejourneytosplits #challenge is COMPLETE! We did it, #yogis !! Thank you to everyone who followed along and provided encouragement throughout this journey!
While taking it easy today at the pool this afternoon, my dad was gracious enough to take these photos while I attempted to get myself in the poses for the final days of the challenge!
A little stretching prep with #threeleggeddog was necessary before going into •Day 12: #splits // #hanumanasana // •Day 13 brings us #middlesplits //#straddle •Day 14... the final day TODAY had us really stretch ourselves for #oversplits 😳 As the pool didn't have yoga blocks, I improvised with a deck chair and rolled up towel for this last one!
•Participation in this challenge stretched me (no pun intended 😉) in ways I was not anticipating. My heart, my body and my soul have come out stronger and more at peace. Thank you to @aumyogaannarbor & @smirkasana for hosting such an engaging event! I met so many wonderful people and discovered pieces of myself that I didn't know existed, but have left me in awe of what I'm capable of. I have learned to not let go, but let it be. Don't force it if it's not natural, you will only get hurt. Know your limits, but don't be afraid to test yourself. Appreciate and be gracious with yourself for where you are at on your #journey // "Beautiful girl, you were made to do hard things, so believe in yourself."
