Today’s Work

Crow. Crane. Bakasana.

Whatever you want to call it, a great #pose. So empowering. So fun to do and teach. On its own or in transition to or from somewhere else. So many ways to do it. Here, trying to get my arms as straight as I can. Today’s work.

Do #yoga. Today. Everyday.

KAPOTASANA!!!

Miles to go before….
KAPOTASANA!

I have never been taught this pose. And obviously never really wanted to go at it on my own, as I barely do wheel on my own.

I have been working around with it a tiny bit over the past week, due to an Instagram challenge.

What I know so far: It is brutal. I am very far away from it. It hits most of my tight places. Keeping the hips forward is hard business. Landing the elbows, oh my. And those feet are very far away. It would be nice to have some partners to help! It was also way sweeter at the beach, in the sand.

Stops Along the Way

Fun, beach practice toward the scorpion variation of pinchamayurasana. Still working on the balance and the length, and–oh yeah–that “heart melting” before bending those knees. There are many stops along the way in this practice. I usually stop at the vertical variation, but challenged to play around. Beach mindset helps.

Beach Bravery

Beach favorites? For me, handstands. For the rest of my gang, other stuff, like
skim boarding. I am so much braver on the sand, even though this #HiltonHead sand is not soft at all. Like asphalt. We ride our bikes on it with ease. But I will kick up over and over again, seeking one moment aloft, balanced, inverted. A celebration each time. I am hoping to take some of my #inversion bravery home with me, as well as the beach backbend work, which is also much more fun and much braver.

The Poses We Don’t Love….

Tidal pool mermaid. I am not happy IN this pose or WITH this pose. Even at the beach. More practice. But I don’t want to practice this one. So I don’t. It remains rough, with tight hips and shoulders.

What are the poses you don’t like to practice? Maybe it’s time to do one or two of them, and add them to your practice. See what happens. I’ll do it if you do!
