@miz.liz - ✨How to L-Sit✨⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
After an incredible morning at @theyogamarkets with yoga, vegan Mexican food, and lots of playtime with pups (for Waffles 🐾), it’s time for another tutorial - how to L-sit!!⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
1. Warm up wrists - very important for holding up your entire body weight 💪🏼 Knuckle raises, fingers facing back, backs of palms make fists up and release; shoulders staked over wrists the entire time⠀
2. Forward fold bounces - to warm up hamstrings and low back, don’t go into your fullest stretch here⠀
3. Leg lifts x10 - torso straight, hands next to hips, lift legs up as high as possible⠀
4. Forward fold - go a little deeper, hold 5-10 breaths⠀
5. Grab some blocks! Hip lifts x10 - lift hips up as high as possible, pulling feet closers to blocks⠀
6. Forward fold - 5-10 breaths⠀
7. Hip lifts alternating legs up x10 - works on compression 🙌🏼⠀
8. Forward fold - 5-10 breaths⠀
9. L-sit on blocks - lift hips and both legs up at the same time!⠀
10. Modification: tuck knees into chest⠀
11. Variation: ditch the blocks once it feels easier! 💪🏼 Y’all got this!!⠀
.⠀

..⠀
STRETCH ROUTINE...⠀
1. Wide leg forward fold⠀
2. Wide Leg Side lunge stretch⠀
3. Wide leg twist⠀
4. Surfers lunge back and forth⠀
5. Seated twist⠀
6. Reclined shoulder stand on block (or use a folded pillow or blanket instead)

🌸🙌 I wanted do a post on bird of paradise because it’s actually the pose I disliked most when I started Yoga. It took me FOREVER just to be able to stay balanced, then another lifetime to get my leg extended. It’s still a work in progress for me but using the wall has been a HUGE help in this pose! ⠀
Warm Ups:⠀
•High/low lunge•Revolved side angle•Revolved low lunge-Lizard pose•Lizard pose with bind(use a strap if you don’t have the bind)•Pigeon• Fire log pose•Chair with twist variation•Extended side angle w. Bind)•Extended triangle pose•Extended triangle pose with bind. •Focus more on the calmness of your breathe then then the pose itself. A calm breath will help with the balance as well as the extension of the foot❤️ #yogaalignment #IMPROVEYOURPRACTICE

@miz.liz - ✨How to Crow✨⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Breaking down Crow pose today! Options for a block or pillow under your head when you're practicing in case you're scared of face-planting 🙌🏼⠀
.⠀
.⠀
1. Warm up wrists - this is very important in practicing any arm balances that require your entire body weight on your hands; I like to do at least 10-60 heel lifts and wrist circles both directions, keeping weight in the fingertips and knuckles⠀
2. Upper body strength: Plank hold for 30-60 sec - stack shoulders over wrist⠀
3. Plank knee to elbow taps: 10x each side⠀
4. Forearm plank: hold 30-60 second⠀
5. Forearm plank: knee to elbow taps 10x each side⠀
6. Tuck up drill: 10-20x stack shoulders over wrist, on the tops of feet, press into knuckles and shoulders to lift hips to the sky⠀
7. Knees completely straight + knees bent to elbows and hold⠀
8. Squat to forward fold 10-20x⠀
9. Forward fold to knees to armpits - hold⠀
10. Crow prep: knees to armpits, shift shoulders forwards past wrists and bend elbows slightly; lift one leg up at a time bending heel to glute⠀
11. Crow: lift up both legs, heels to glutes, straigthen arms for crane (optional)⠀
12. Crow play! Incorporate this pose into your practice 🧘🏻‍♀️🌿⠀

@healingmotions - Do your wrists bother you? Read below for full details on how to bulletproof your wrists👇👇 If your wrists and weak, this will strengthen them. If they are tight, this will make them more flexible! You can use this as a stand alone routine or for a warmup! Make sure you save this for your personal practice and share it to spread the healing message!⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Elbow Rotations - eyes of the elbows rotate forward and backwards, keep weight in the knuckles and finger tips. Shoulders planche as wrists warmup. 10-100x .⠀
.⠀
Torso circles - make small circles with the shoulders. Weight always stays in the fingertips and knuckles. Eyes of the elbows face forward. 3-20x each direction⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Finger Tip holds - no collapsing digits. Shoulders over wrists, knees back or forward to make it harder or easier. 3sets, start at 15 seconds and work your way up to 1 min. .⠀
.⠀
Ridge top Pushups - fingers stay on the floor, palms lift. 5-20x⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Palms up Pushups - be gentle and go slowly! Start with knees close and bend arms out to the side, keeping shoulders over wrists. 5-20x Feel the fascia of the hand open. .⠀
.⠀
Reverse knuckle pushups - same as above, but this time wrists start flat and end on knuckles. 5-20x⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Wrist release - fingers face knees and lean back. Keep weight in fingertips. 5-20x⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Twisted half push-up with kiss - make sure to brace the core. No need to do both sides⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Lateral wrist strengthener - 15 second hold. Try to use an organic weight. If too heavy, remove sock. .⠀
.⠀
Random wrist mobilizations - make sure you have light random resistant. Repeat both sides 5,000,000 times. .⠀
.⠀
The last few exercises are only partial jokes! In case it wasn’t apparent 🤣⠀

@omniyogagirl - ⭐️ #TriYogaSchool ⭐️ Our April focus is on stretching our hamstrings, & our pose for week 3 is Prasarita Padottanasana A or Wide Legged Forward Bend 🎓 As well as stretching the hamstrings, Prasarita Padottanasana A also stretches & lengthens the calves, hips, lower back & spine.⠀
🎓⠀
ALIGNMENT CUES:⠀
#omniyogagirltips
1. Judge your stance based on the length of your legs & the length of your torso - Your feet shouldn’t be too far apart⠀
2. Have the feet parallel & the heels aligned with each other⠀
3. Place the hands on the mat shoulder width apart, & line the fingertips up with the toes⠀
4. Keep your weight forwards on the balls of your feet⠀
5. Engage the legs by pulling up the kneecaps & draw the shoulder blades down the back⠀
6. Reach the top of the head down towards the mat as you reach the sit bones up. Focus on folding from the hip joints⠀
7. Keep the lower belly drawn in & the pelvic floor pulled up⠀
8. The drishti, or gaze, is towards the nose⠀
🎓⠀
