It’s weekend # 2️⃣ of #PUMPKINASANA!! 🎃🧡🎃
⠀
✴️ Our theme for this weekend is INVERSIONS! 🙃 Choose any inversion you like and incorporate a pumpkin!
I played around with a funky pincha and swipe to see what else I did!!!😃
⠀
This year we're doing things a little bit differently. There are no sponsors or prizes, this is purely for FUN!
⠀
Each Friday, @kamaste_ and I will give you a theme. YOU get to choose the pose of your choice that somehow incorporates a PUMPKIN 🎃 Post your pose over the weekend (or during the following week) and tag #PumpkinAsanaWeekendPose so we can see your pumpkin-y pose perfection! (Say that 3x fast!)
⠀
Please be careful and choose your pumpkins wisely. Pumpkins can be wobbly and we don't want any injuries. 🤕

Happy Friday! ✌🏼❤️
⠀
I used to think I would never be able to do any sort of hollowback, gaze change, etc. There are still things I can work on here, but that’s all part of the journey.
⠀
Tell yourself you CAN and with lots of determination and practice you just MIGHT DO IT ONE DAY! ✨
⠀
Now if I could just work on my “escape route” 🤣 Swipe to see how NOT to exit pincha because I’m too afraid to go over into wheel 🙈

I love a good forward fold and especially one with an added challenge! So when I saw @eileendelatorre and the awesome ladies hosting #FoldingIntoFall post this #floatingpaschimottanasana I had to jump in!
⠀
I used to really struggle with this one, but I felt a little bit more ease in it today. Yay for progress ☺️
⠀
Wearing my new @k.deer Cathy Stripes. I forgot how much I love the fit of K.Deer! 👌🏼 And did you know that for every purchase of the Cathy Stripe, a percentage of proceeds goes directly to support The Giving Three Foundation 501(c)3 who works to help take children from oppression to opportunity? 💗

Announcing our #ShapesWithGrace winner! 💗 This was not an easy task we were faced with. 🙈 We wish @kiragraceyoga could outfit you all!
⠀
🥁 Without further ado, congratulations @yogabliss.tammy 🎉 Please DM me to claim your prize.

How’s your Saturday going? I took my first TRX class this am. It was pretty cool. Have you ever tried it? Did you like it? 💪🏼
⠀
Now onto other things... have you found a pumpkin yet? Now with October under way... it's time for some #PUMPKINASANA!! 🎃🧡🎃

✴️ Our theme for this weekend is ARM BALANCES! Choose any arm balance you fancy. Balance on your pumpkin, next to your pumpkin or perhaps use it as a prop!

I went with #FireCrow and I purposely cut my foot off because OMG you guys it looked huge!! 😳🙈

Kick your feet up, the weekend is here! 🙃
Jumping in on #activateyourhandstand with a tuck handstand 🤸🏼‍♀️ These are super fun to practice. If you’re afraid of going over, practice at the wall. This will show you how much “oomph” you need to get your hips to stack over your shoulders.
It took me quite awhile to feel comfortable enough to move away from the wall. I used to practice in my bedroom, in a little spot next to my nightstand and had handprints imprinted in the carpet quite often ✋🏼🤚🏼🙊
⠀
@activateyourcore has some killer exercises to help with your tuck handstand! Go check them out!

🤸🏼‍♀️ I'm starting to get the itch to work on pressing again... I was close once before, but I was diligent (and slightly obsessed) with practicing it everyday. I'm just waiting for it to click and make sense in my body, but my pelvic floor is still on a hiatus I guess.
⠀
So here's to more pilates, toe taps, and getting back at it! Feel free to leave me some tips! 🙏🏼👇🏼
⠀
PS. In slide 2, I did get a few seconds of hang time, but then I just launched forward instead of up. Hoping to one day go up! ⬆️
⠀
Thank you @eileendelatorre for inspiring me to start this process again.
