After enjoying a highly needed break aka sleeping a lot, reduced online time, reading and watching my fav TV show (any guesses on that?) I felt inspired by Bethany’s funky side crow. Turned out it not as doable as I anticipated 😜. Loved this mix of side crow, one-legged crow and lady legs 🤩

Only one more day to catch up and I really amd truly finished a challenge 😆.

This crow is also for @mirajfindingbalance who asked me to show some crow fun. Getting this was definitely fun and as soon as I can move and transition like you I will tag you, promised ✌🏼😉

It’s our last day of #ShapeShifter and Day 7 is all about shifting the weight from one side to the other. Whether you already have a solid One Arm Hand Stand or you just start to practice it. Shifting weight offers you some options for other poses as well.

My three slides show you a potpourri of weight shifting practices I do myself and teach a lot in my classes. Standing on one hand/arm is addressing the two sides of your lungs. Standing on your right hand pumps up the right lung, standing on your left hand pumps up the left lung. It shows you exactly which side is stronger. And sometimes it’s a surprise. I am a righty but my OAHS (at the wall) is better when standing on my left. Who knew? 😜

🎬SLIDE 1 Fingertip & block work on all fourth, in Plank Pose and in Down Dog
🎬SLIDE 2 Shoulder Taps on all fourth and in Plank Pose. Walk your Plank, Walk your Dog
🎬SLIDE 3 Block work, fingertips, shoulder taps in handstand at the wall 🤸🏻‍♀️

It’s been an amazing week and I want to thank each and everyone of you for adding so many variations & options. I truly got inspired. I hope you found a little something I or my co-hosts posted today to spice up your handstand game.
You can still join us and of course you have some time to catch up on all days ❤️.

Many thanks to my awesome co-hosts for having me. I learned a few things this week 🤓. And last but not least a big Thank You to our generous sponsors for supporting us 💝

Not quite sure about this one 🤔. I had to change my bra 3 times until it was „IG safe“ to post. The girls just wanted to have fun, I guess 🤣. Day 🔟 of #BalanceThatAsana is #InfinityPose 🔗

Today’s instalment is totally easy for me … my fav shape is always the one I find some hang time #gettingthere 🤣. For today it is a bow and arrow-ish shape, a straight one with crossed ankles, stag legs and a straight one. I am totally aware that my straight one is not really a straight one. This is where my handstand work begins #workthathollowbody 👊🏼💥

It’s Day 6 of #shapeshifter and we want to see your favourite handstand shape(s)🤸🏻‍♀️.

It’s already the second to last day of our short but sweet challenge and what can I say? You guys are killin it. I am a bit overwhelmed by the gallery of our hashtag (please don't come after us 🙈). Let us know in case we missed your posts. It's not by purpose but all the shapeshifters of the world - especially all Loki fans - seem to bustle here 😂. We love you 🙌🏼❤️

Mind yoga vs Reality
I really thought my back leg is higher up. 🤣

Dancer and I have never been good friends but after some intense days and weeks mentally and physically focusing on handstands this gets even more NOPE. The bent leg helped a bit not to be too mad at today’s pose 😂

Ladies, this is what you get from me. Namasté.

Day 9️⃣ of #BalanceThatAsana is a #DancerPose 💃🏻

Props. If there is anything that I like more than my practice it’s my practice with props. And my top fav props are .. The Wall and blocks. I already showed you some ways to use bolsters, mats and a #FeetUpTrainer but I can’t get enough of BLOCKS 😂.

For day 5 of #shapeshifter we want to know more about your favourite props or tools🤸🏻‍♀️.

Part 1 of the vid shows how I tuck a foam block into the crook of my hip of the bent leg. Keep it there when you kick up. It makes you more aware of your lower body 🤸🏻‍♀️

Part 2 shows how I elevate my practice with blocks. As soon as you get used to the different height (as if you have „longer“ arms) and the different leverage you will find that it actually gets easier🤸🏻‍♀️

Part 3 shows the same but on my canes. Unfortunately I can’t use them at home (my body height and low ceilings 🤦🏻‍♀️) but somehow it gets even easier than with blocks. I can grab the smaller surface of the canes and that provides more freedom of movement to do all these tiny little micro corrections you need to hold yourself upright. My next shopping definitely includes handstand blocks 😂.

Try it on blocks or canes and lmk what you think about it.

I use Bamboo or the less slippery but heavy Cork Blocks (23x15x10cm / 9x6x4in). For drills or exercises including jumps I prefer the solid foam blocks.

I don’t own any soft foam blocks. The studios I teach provide the small sized cork blocks (22x12x7cm / 3x4.75x9in). Works as well but once you got used to the big ones you won’t like the small ones anymore 😝

Have you had a chat with your bestie today? Did you share your day with someone close to your heart? Did you laugh together? Did you feel the love? I really hope you did. I do and everything feels a bit better. Thank you, Susan @sumacyoga for your friendship ❤️ #instawomen

Love it when two great challenges ask for the same pose. This is also for Day 2 of #oppositeasanasattract with the lovely hosts @cece.carson@yuki_peachy@kimterpstra_yoga⁣ & @laraliam⁣ 🌹

I can’t press up into handstand. No surprise here. I neither pursue nor practice it 🤷🏻‍♀️. I might start, though after this challenge. Getting these vids was so much fun 😝.

But what I do (and teach) are some fun exercises which might help to prep your body for that. Please check out my incredible co-hosts for the real (press) deal 👊🏼💥

For Day 4 of #shapeshifter we ask you to show us how you like to train your press up into handstand 🤸🏻‍♀️.

🎬SLIDE 1 shows how you can use a bolster for cushion
🎬SLIDE 2. If you don’t have a bolster use two mats and roll them together. If you don’t have two mats use a huge pillow (couch) or mattress or anything big and soft but solid.
🎬SLIDE 3 shows you some fun block stuff.
🎬SLIDE 4 shows you the use of the #FeetUpTrainer. If you don’t have one (well, you can win one here) can use two stable chairs or Ottomans or even blocks.


Please warm up with your regular practice and repeat everything we did so far before you do the next days' exercise and have some fun today with today's drills #holycore 💪🏼

You can find the real time vid on my #IGTV (5:21 mins) 📺

When you think you've got it and when you edit your pic you realise that the auto focus of the app hasn't worked properly 🤦🏻‍♀️ I want my other phone back 😩

Sorry for the sucky quality. I just don't have time to redo it and it bugs me 🙈

Besides that ... this pose is yummy. I truly loved it 😍

It’s Day 3 of #shapeshifter and today is all about getting in and getting out of a handstand. Show us your favourite entries & exits.

Only recently I started to work on tuck jump into handstand but that is for sure SO NOT MY FAVOURITE way of getting into it 😂. But on some days I get it. It's so awesome and I’m shocked and surprised and kinda sort of stoked about it 🤩.

For today kicking up it is ... and cartwheeling out or getting out the way I got into it. My intention is always to use as less momentum as possible and NOT to cartwheel out. You can see that it's always the same side I fall out. This is overworking my left shoulder joint and this is what I need to avoid. The longer I practice the more momentum I need because of lack of strength.

Two years ago I started to use my less dominant side to kick up first. It felt like I’ve never kicked up before. When I found a nano second of hang time I switched to my dominant side. After finding some hang time here I switched back to my less dominant side. Do you work your other side? Do it and don't give up 💪🏼

Most of the days I find a good handstand when using the other side. It’s more stable and I don’t over kick it. It's just not as pretty 🤪

My vids show quite a regular handstand practice of mine. Second slide shows the other side.

Have fun today 🤸🏻‍♀️
