BAKASANA to HANDSTAND
.
TRANSITIONS. The practice doesn't stop between postures, it's a constant flow of moving meditation. In fact some of them push you to your limits demanding your best level of concentration and body awareness

So here is my press from Eka Pada Bakasana to handstand with the help of several blocks, my @brentwoodhome bolster and a ton of inspiration from @catbradleyyoga! 🙏🎉😊Thanks Cat for always being so generous with your knowledge! I realize that I am still a long ways off from the full press, but little by little I am going to chip away at it until I get there! 🙌

🔥Tips 🔥
.
I definitely find that my non-dominant hand is easier as the straight arm. This is fairly common from what I hear so try it first to bolster your confidence, but remember to train both sides. Also, I found it helpful to bring my straight arm hand slightly forward. .
.
I used my bolster to lightly press the back of my head into. As in headstand or shoulderstand do not look sideways if you decide to try it this way once you are in the pose since you could strain your neck. .
.
One of the things that helped me in Funky off-set poses is realizing that the straight arm is going to hold 80-90% of the weight. The other arm the elbow is bent and strongly squeezing into your ribcage as if you had a bag full of coins that you were trying to hold between your inner arm and your outer ribcage. Squeeze! .
.
Cat's tip on bending the knee of the top leg to go up is so amazing! As you can see in this video I tried it both ways and it was infinitely easier with the top knee bent! 😅You can see how the body stacks better that way as well. .
.
I was super proud to get it down to 2 blocks! Yay! Next stop 1 block and then hopefully 0 and then no wall! 💪Baby steps. .
.
Do you have any tips on this transition? If so feel free to share them below! I'd love to hear them! Also, what is something challenging that you are tackling right now in your practice? (Can be asana related or not) .

Much Love❤️

When we are linking two poses, we may have the tendency to gravitate toward one particular in-between pose or another. Let's challenge ourselves to step out of the box with more creative ways to #ConnectTheAsanas 🔓🔑🔓
.
Join us July 31st - August 6th for 7 days of transitional fun!
.
.
Each day, we will provide you with two unique poses, and all you have to do is CONNECT the two asanas with a third pose of your choice. 👭Coming up with a way to link them will fire up your creativity and give you some new transition ideas to incorporate into your practice! Simply post a video of your three pose flow each day! We will provide you with examples of connecting poses that you can try, or you can come up with your own! 〰✴〰

The ever graceful Murni (maker of magical mandalas) is at it again! This time with crow, beautifully transitioning into a poolside headstand!

@Regrann from @will_mcs - This is a non-typical stabilization drill but extremely effective at stabilizing multiple planes of motion. You simultaneously engage the anterior and posterior chain while twisting the torso. Get good at this drill and your yoga transitions will improve dramatically. #stability #stabilization #yogatransitions

My toes are having an identity crisis from going back and forth between #budokon (demi-pointe) and #skanda (big toe pointed, other toes flexed).
The whole thing took almost three minutes, I had to cut out most to show the real time transitions.

Life is nothing without feeling it and being aware of it all. The slow movements and transitions - in life as well as in yoga. Appreciating it all - the hard work, as well as the gentle organic evolution of things. Accepting what is - the wobbles, the progress, the nous and frustrations. I look at my children and I'm floored by how present it all is, and that in a year I will have lost my 8 year old girl, my 5 year old boy. I'm so aware of appreciating it all now. .
What are you grateful for right now? I'm grateful for my family and for my body, I'm grateful to be on holiday and to be hitting pause on routine and early mornings for a few weeks!💜💜💜

Time for #onmondayswedropit with #thenegativecrew ! Yoga breakthrough today for transitioning from handstand to flying crow! I've been so close to landing this before but would slip off the knee and was so frustrated as to why I couldn't get it, plus I recently started learning to press up from flying crow to handstand. Why I didn't bend the top leg first before, I don't know, but it was a game changer for me to get it. I also worked on dropping the hammer, pincha to chinstand, and pike lowers to lolasana. Now, I want some new ideas for Mondays friends, what are you working on??!!

Every experience gone through in life prepares you for the next big moment. Just like yoga poses building off one another, carrying the student down a desired path towards the highest expression of a particular shape.
We build strength to hold ourselves up, while teaching the body/mind to open up and receive.
I am strong.
I am receptive.
I am willing.
Energies become balanced and the Divine Soul shines through. ~ I AM LOVE ~

Free flowin' #budokon style.
One of the things I love about the practice is that there's much more emphasis on transitions than in other styles of yoga asana. As important as the yoga postures are, how you enter and exit a pose is - in the long run - more important than the pose itself.
Same is true about life: how you got where you are and how gracefully you can move on to the next thing is what really shows your character.

It has been awesome working with @yogini.kalila for the last few months, seeing her gain strength and confidence in her practise, especially in headstand, crow and firefly. .

Don't give up
When I first started yoga I couldn't even come close to touching my toes nor even begin to balance on one foot.
Some days yoga is just taking a seat on my mat and being present.
Other days my yoga is a strength practice- pushing my limits. It's what I like to do.
Find your yoga and fly it high and proud 🌈❤️✨

Clip 3 of 3: It's been a while since I posted a yoga video, and I must say I'm proud of my form at the end of this one... from a strong foundation in a headstand, to a forearm plank, to a couple push ups, to down dog. My progress shows immensely in some poses, and hardly at all in others. However, that being said, videos allow me to see that the progress is huge! Little by little if we are consistent we may notice changes on a daily basis, but especially with ups and downs, they can be hard to see. However, looking back months or years, we can amaze ourselves! I'd say I've been consistently doing yoga for seven years. The first two I did it nearly every day in class form. Then I took to a home routine for three years. Then I went back to classes. For the last two years I've had a balance of at home and classes, and I've done something yoga-esque every single day. I don't think my life will ever be without it. It gives me the perfect mix of strength, balance, ability to control which muscles engage and relax, mental clarity, dance, challenge, body check ins, and all of that supports my outdoor lifestyle. Things like hiking and paddling become easier, and injuries less frequent. #pnwlove #yogaeverydamnday #sevenyearsofyoga #sevenyearsofchange #lovewins #smileeverydamnday #happinessisachoice #headstand #standingonfeetpose #forearmplank #yogatransitions

We're already halfway through #loveyourasana #yogachallenge as we're on day seven now! How quick is this going!?😱 Today's asana is:
#Anjaneyasana #lowlunge
I was feeling a little playful today so I decided to add in a nice relaxing evening sequence 🌸
I love #practicing in #candlelight as I really feel the #benefits of the practice. I especially practice with #insence and #organicoils to help lock in everything I've absorbed throughout the class. It also helps if your day has been hectic or busy and really does wind you down for the evening, follow your flow up by having a nice relaxing bath with bath oils too 👌🍀 If you're looking for great quality pure natural organic oils then check out Meraki brands, they're fantastic ❤

Apologies for the Video speeding up, insta was trying to squeeze it all in!
Enjoy your evening everybody and make sure your seal it with an OM 😘🌸🍀❤ Hosts:
