Cat/Cow Tilts & Anahatasana (or my best attempt at it)

I remember the day I injured my left shoulder. It was a lesson in focus & self reliance.
🚴🏾‍♀️
When I first moved to LA, I loved to ride my bike along the trail near the 5 fwy in Glendale/Burbank. One day on a ride, I wasn't paying good enough attention & slid on some gravel. I lost control of the bicycle & was thrown smack into one of those cylindrical posts they use to hold up bridges.
*
When I landed (on top of my bike), I knew something was wrong. I couldn't lift the arm & there was pain. What was most shocking was how I was passed up by 3 other cyclists, as I laid there in pain asking for help.
🚴🏾‍♀️
I struggled, but I got back on my bike & with a sore arm & blood running down the side of my cheek from the earbud piercing my skin, headed home. It was a tough ride but I made it. Got x-rays. Nothing was broken. Slight dislocation. Got drops for my ear, some physical therapy and years of yoga. Look at me now. 💪🏾Chimamanda: My God never fails!✨

Side note: Supported Fish Pose felt sooo good after this drill. 🤤

🎶 Their sound, seemingly, emanates from a place where our ancestors were once connected. Such texture, depth of sound & expression! And watching them, you can tell that it feels good. Wow, just wow. 🎶

“The way I was taught, yoga is more about managing and transforming our thoughts, emotions, and behavior than about stretching our hamstrings. And the real work of yoga is about mastering our minds, not mastering handstand. We are multidimensional beings, not just our anatomy. The progressively widespread reductionism of yoga to its more superficial aspects is not a positive thing. It misses the depth and breadth of what yoga has to offer our modern world.” - Gary Kraftsow •

LESSONS ON FAITH
by @tevsmith 📚
"...And if we are lucky,

If we are unyielding

We all become
What we pretend
to be.

We all attain
What we pretend
to see."
_______________________________________________________
This is a passage from the entire poem which has been setting my soul on 🔥 since I ordered his book, Here We Are Reflections Of A God Gone Mad, over a month ago. I can't walk away from it, I cannot put it down. Nor do I have any desire to...It has been a vessel revealing so much more then sometimes it feels like I can handle. Still I stand strong! These past few weeks, when someone asked me, "how are you doing, no really, how are you doing?" I can only answer, "I'm not sure." Anyone out there been at this place before and know what I'm talking about? As @jenpastiloff mentioned, "you don't have to be either or, you can be both at the same time." Own that...I know I am! 💯
..
I know one emotion I can call for sure, unconditional gratitude!! Gratitude to hold space for my loved ones, students, teachers, and friends. May I hold space for you?
I look forward to seeing my early 🐦's tomorrow for a 💦 6AM Hot Flow @whiteheatyoga
..
With immense gratitude and ❤️ I hope to see you soon!

👀What y'all doing this Labor Day??

After injuring my shoulder, I accepted the idea that I would never be able to include inversion or hand balancing asanas in my yoga practice. In fact, I'd mentally distanced myself from those shapes so much that the idea of even attempting one caused much anxiety.
🤸🏾‍♂️
Fast forward to 2016 Yoga Expo where a handstand workshop was made available. In spite of my fears, I checked it out with the encouragement of my OMie, @jbaeyoga💕
🤸🏾‍♂️
The instructor lead us on a journey of strength & stability with a series of drills, flows & education centered on body placement that made me feel stronger & more prepared to conquer inversions.
🤸🏾‍♂️
Since then, I've been actively growing my knowledge of Ashtanga-based Power Yoga styles, proper body placement & a variety of preps/drills that will help build strength & inform an asana practice to slowly introduce and include inversion work.
🤸🏾‍♂️
Let me share with you what I've learned in my Inversion Fundamentals workshop tonight!
🤸🏾‍♂️
I will show you...
*what asanas support arm balancing & inversion work
*teach preps that will help to improve overall hand and wrist engagement (Hasta Bandha) to prevent injury
*how to use the wall and partner work to help improve the expression & experience of inversions within a self practice.
*de-mystify inversions for the beginning & intermediate yogis
*
*
And, as always, it will be a fun time mixed with a strong practice!
