FREEDOM

revolved side angle
Happy 4th of July, friends.

In honor of the holiday, I thought of practicing all of the poses that embody a sense of freedom for me, the poses I love. But I am doing this yoga challenge, which includes a lot of poses I don’t love. (#julyyogachallenge #backtobackbends with @kinoyoga @beachyogagirl @aloyoga) So, I had to get to work. And I learned a ton, as usual, on my mat. The poses I don’t love, the ones that are very hard for me, do create an amazing sense of freedom afterwards. Like the one above, #revolved #sideanglepose or #parivrrtaparsvakonasana. I can’t do full pose with back heel down very well so I modify and lift my back heel.

And one legged crow, which is hard hard HARD for me….

This pose is especially difficult for this yogi from headstand. Maybe one day I will get it without the pass through crow. (VIDEO at http://www.YogaNag.com)

And then, for the grand finale, FREEDOM! Savasana.  I love this one. Especially after hard work.

What are the poses that make you feel free afterwards? Are there other ways you celebrate this holiday besides BBQs and beer.

Do #yoga. Today. Everyday.

Peace and #practice,
