Learn how the poses are supposed to feel, not how they're supposed to look. Often, simply bending one or both knees transforms your experience in a pose from awkward or painful to deep and liberating! What modification transformed your practice? 😊

Read on for @adellbridges tips!
These are three examples of where you may be able to lengthen, strengthen, and open much more effectively just by bending your knees .
. 🐢 In downward dog, open the shoulders more by bending your knees . 🌜 In crescent lunge, lengthen your spine and stretch the hip flexors (as opposed to sinking into the lower back) by bending your knees . ⛡️ In boat, strengthen the lower abdominals by keeping the spine from rounding, made easier by bending in the knees .
.
You can always work to straighten them later! .
.
Bent knees also help work towards strong alignment in chaturanga, side plank, revolved side angle, and sooo many more! .
.
These are things I’ve learned from my teachers. And I continue to learn how best to share these tips with you all, whether on here or in my workshops or retreats. I love getting your feedback to know I’m communicating my tips well, so thank you all who have given me feedback! It means so much πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ .

Did you begin yoga to achieve a specific pose? Or did you find the poses to be byproducts of something else? Whatever your goal, remember that it takes time. Keep showing up, trusting your body and trusting the process!
Thanks for sharing, @samgachyoga 😊

I couldn’t do the splits when I started yoga. I also didn’t ever do yoga because I wanted to do the splits. But I fell in love with practicing yoga and over time I became more flexible. Until one day not only could I do the splits, but I could do it across two chairs with one foot on each, like some weird alien.
Yoga also made my stronger and changed the way I think and move and breathe. But that’s a story for another time. ❀️ Upload your best yoga photos πŸ‘‰ yogaposesguide.com (link in bio) Most beautiful photos will be featured here 😍

How do you make inversions less intimidating? Use a wall! Great to build body awareness and strength. Balance will follow naturally. What other poses have you learned by using the wall? Thanks for sharing, @roxanne_yoga! ❀️
Here are a few tips for those who are learning to get into Pinchamayurasana, or Forearm balance, against the wall; starting closer to the wall makes everything a lot easier. Just keep thinking of reaching the tailbone to the sky, and keep pushing the forearms (shoulder-width apart) into the ground to lift.
