Super excited about my arm balance workshop tomorrow! We’ll be utilizing the power of yoga blocks to get into and out of each pose. I was using my blocks for a little lift in firefly pose today, and realized that I could press into handstand from there. Keep playing, you never know where you’re journey may take you. Hope to see you at the workshop tomorrow! ✨✨✨✨

What I love most about rivers is
you can't step in the same river twice;
the water's always changing, always flowing.
What's around the river bend,
waiting just around the river bend?
I look once more just around the river bend..

BUT, there are different disciplines with different alignments.
Each Yoga Style, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hatha Yoga, Iyengar, Aerial Yoga, Bikram Yoga, Terpsichore Yoga, Kundalini, Yin yoga ..., has its own identity.
❌There is not a single, unifying, objective truth, but merely Different Ways of Yoga

I just rode in an Uber with the most fantastic man who told me all about his books on tape, to Gammage theatre where I‘ve seen numerous productions with @adamswahlgren throughout my childhood, adolescence, and adult life. I’m here to watch another one with one of my best friends in the entire world @meggssparkles and I can’t help but be grateful to see all the humanity radiating around me. Humans suck sometimes. And there are a lot of terrible and painful things happening in the world by the human hand. But goodness it feels good to be connected and so tuned into and aware of the beauty in it all....the genuine, the authentic, and the powerful. The part that makes Instagram posts like this just seem so silly because they cannot possibly capture the experience. I love that part a lot. ❤️✨ #Gammage#art#theatre#humanity#yogithoughts#practiceandalliscoming

Out of all the asanas that I love, any variation of #forearmheadstand (Pincha Mayurasana) are my all time favorite to watch but have never had the guts to try it. The rush of energy from trying it is spectacular. It's very similar to the runners high. So this week's pose is to honor positive energy. Sometimes you need to go upside down so you can see things more clear when you come back up.
Benefits of Forearm Headstand
This pose definitely improves decision-making. It brings fresh oxygenated blood into the brain. It relieves tension and fatigue. Forearm headstands also strengthens your balance-learning to shift the weight in line with your hips. It's also working your legs, shoulders and arms. Super good for you!
Starting from all fours, have your arms interlaced, hands grabbing your elbows and place your elbows on the floor. This keeps your upper body in alignment with your shoulders to prevent any injuries.Interlace your fingers and put the very top of your head to the ground so that your hands would cradle your head.Lift your hips up and walk your feet as close to your elbows as you can.Now focusing on engaging your core and pressing your shoulder blades on your back, lift one leg up, pressing out through your heels, then the other.Play around with your legs, slowly.Stay here for 5 breaths. Then release and go into child's pose to bring space back into the spine.Tips
The key is to engage your core. You should feel light when you practice this pose. Also, always remember to keep your shoulders away from your ears. So no shrugging!
