Tomorrow’s day 17 #projectjustyoga7 . This arm balance is a powerful yoga pose that twists, open your hips, and builds arm strength all at the same time!
Don’t worry about getting it right away—that’s why we do the step-by-step breakdowns
You can check with @thewovenyogi and @tddjpmom for different variations for different levels of practice as well..
💙 Stand, bend knees, sink hips back like you are sitting down in a chair, and reach arms high to frame face. Transfer weight into right leg and hug left knee into chest. Cross left ankle over right knee, flexing left foot to protect knee. Breathe here for at least 3 deep breaths.
💜 Begin in half chair, half ankle to knee with left ankle crossed over right thigh. Take hands together in a prayer at the center of chest. Take a big inhale here, and use exhale to twist. Bring left shoulder down and place any part of upper arm to elbow that is accessible in front of foot. Breathe here for at least 3 deep breaths.
💚 From half chair, half ankle to knee, prayer twist with the left ankle over right thigh, “T” your arms out so that left hand or fingertips are on the ground and right arm is reaching straight up toward the ceiling. Twist for at least 3 deep breaths
❤️ From half chair, half ankle to knee twist with open arms, place right hand on the ground (or a block if you are using a block under left hand) shoulder-distance apart from left hand with wrist creases in one long line. Press firmly into the knuckles of the forefinger and thumb, palm, and finger tips, bend elbows like chaturanga (reach elbows straight back, not winging out), press left foot firmly into left upper arm, using right thigh pressing into left ankle as support. Eventually, lean so far forward that all weight is in hands, and then extend right leg long. Breathe! 💚💙💜❤️
Be sure to check in with @thewovenyogi for on the even days of July @tddjpmom for the odd days and I will continue to share all your modifications for the month..
