But how do I get my legs off the ground?? 🤔😖😩
Give your core a hand! 🖐
Press outer arms, from elbows to pinky fingers, down + forward to elevate + activate. ⚡

🙌🏼HOW TO PRACTICE HEADSTAND🙌🏼
.
This is my favorite inversion ✨ Here are some tips & tricks for mastering this pose in your practice!
.
👍🏼Remember, this is an advanced pose. If you’re nervous to practice in an open room, you can try this against a wall
.
✨Be patient! For a loooong time, all I could do was walk my hips up and barely lift one leg. BUT with consistent practice, I got better & better & eventually was able to lift both legs!
.
💖Be mindful of putting too much weight into your head/neck. Use the arms & shoulders to support the body. Think of the head just being there to help balance!
.
😜Have fun!! These types of poses are a ton of fun - so enjoy the practice!

Where do you hold your stress? 😰😖😫
Shoulders? Upper back? Hips?
⠀
Notice what’s tight + you’ll learn the patterns you need to let go. Cue backbends! 🥰 They release the tension + help you love your present moment.
⠀
Swipe ➡ for @yogafordharma ’s backbend tips!
⠀
Counteracting our daily action of bending forward is so important. Think about how frequently our backs are predominantly leaning forward. It’s no wonder that so many people these days are experiencing bulging disks and back problems. We must take care of our sacred spine by counteracting the habit of hunching over. How often do we do this? More often than realized...driving in the car, sitting at a desk, watching tv, reading your phone in bed etc...Backbends can really help relieve the daily stress we place on our spine. Even the beginner entry poses offer all of the benefits, don’t be afraid to try. But please start slow, see how far your body is willing to take you without going TOO far. Trust your intuition and if anything ever hurts, Stop. 🙏🏼✨💕

Why forward fold...? 🤔
⠀
Hint: The 🏆 isn’t touching your toes.
⠀
Anxious? Low back pain? Pain or tightness anywhere from your neck to your toes? Forward fold!
⠀
Check out @actionjacquelyn’s tutorials for smart tips to deepen your forward folds + their infinite benefits!
🔹
Directions:
1️⃣ Sit up tall, and bend your knees so your thighs are on your chest
2️⃣ Hook your first and middle finger around your big toe.
3️⃣ Straighten your spine, and begin with a few deep breathes.
4️⃣ After about 4 deep breathes, on your next exhale, begin to extend your legs.
5️⃣ Keep your chest on your thighs the whole time, and back off if you begin to round your spine. Lengthen it instead.
6️⃣ Hold at your lowest position for 5-10 breathes, or even longer if you’re really looking to increase your flexibility.
7️⃣ Comment below with how that felt for you, and tag someone with tight hamstrings!
🔹
This routine I’m showing you today is dynamic so it would be good to use as a warm up.
If you’re looking to increase your flexibility long-term, take each pose and hold for at least 2 minutes, at the END of your day.
⠀
Here’s the routine....
1️⃣ Forward Fold w/ Knee Bends
2️⃣ Forward Fold Twist
3️⃣ Pyramid Rocks
4️⃣ Low Lunge Rocks
5️⃣ One legged Fold
6️⃣ Seated Forward Fold
Which one is your favorite? Comment below!
