OMG! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ This video is hilariously true and ๐Ÿคฉ @alexzandrapeters nailed it! โ€œDid she say we're only half way through?!?โ€๐Ÿคฆ That's the worst when you're already exhausted.

Do YOU ever come into yoga class totally โœจ confident and then find that it goes out the window โžก๏ธ after the first challenge pose ๐Ÿ˜…? Midway, do you wonder ๐Ÿค” why you even came and then remember after a sweet, lovely savasana ๐Ÿ’ค ๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿผ?

Doesn't ๐Ÿ˜ @Hollybentley_yoga look incredibly strong doing #sirsasana?! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ No matter how much her belly grows, she still keeps the core strength and looks completely at ease ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๐Ÿป in style. I'd say that's quite impressive!

How cute is @Kerispilatesroom ๐Ÿคฉ with her daughter and son?! They're all natural backbenders ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป! Good for her that she's able to laugh and not take it seriously when they fall down either. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๐Ÿผ๏ธ Falling is part of play!

What an elegant arm balance and back bend sequence against the wall! @hana_bladh ๐Ÿคฉ transitioned from each pose with such gentleness and grace ๐Ÿ˜Œ.
-
Practicing against the wall can help so much with proper form, as well as give enough ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“ support to stay strong ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ through each pose.
-
How to do feel about using the wall? ๐Ÿค” Do you like to practice backbends and arm balances with it?

@mindful_jess is a self-proclaimed essentialist ๐Ÿšฐ๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿ›๐Ÿคธโ€โ™€๐Ÿผโ€”meaning she has a ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€ hyper-focused mindset and ONLY spends time on things that matter to her, rather than getting easily distracted ๐ŸŽ‰.
-
-
Is that surprising though? ๐Ÿค” You definitely have to practice regularly to be able to do the kind of backbends Jess does ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป!

Look how @aubrymarie ๐Ÿคฉ utilizes the yoga strap to deepen her Dancer Pose ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ! She looks patient, ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๐Ÿผ๏ธ focused, and elegant.
-
If you watch the video ๐ŸŽฆ until the end, you'll see that she ultimately loses her balance, BUT she doesn't let that get her down ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ โ€”she laughs ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—!
-
Do you ever put the ego aside and use a yoga strap to go deeper into a pose ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๐Ÿป๏ธ? Yes? No? Sometimes? When you fall out of a pose, do you laugh it off ๐Ÿ˜† or are you mean to yourself ๐Ÿ˜–?

Check out this #Headstand prep action ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป! @Puresun_lover, thank you ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“ for posting these ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™€๐Ÿพ exercises. The right prep for headstand is the difference between falling ๐Ÿ‚ within a โŒ› second of holding the pose or staying still as a statue ๐Ÿ—ฝ for minutes ๐Ÿ˜†.

Some exercises are even brand new to me ๐Ÿ˜ฒ and the wall๐Ÿง—โ€โ™€๐Ÿผ is my BFF during inversion prep! I really dig the 1st core and leg strengthening ๐Ÿ‹โ€โ™€๐Ÿป exercise though.

๐Ÿ–๐Ÿผ5 MINUTE FULL BODY STRETCH๐Ÿ–๐Ÿผ
.
๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸผSave this video for next time you need a quick stretch head to toe!
.
๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธSEATED TWIST & CAT/COW: Sit comfortably & with a tall spine. Twist and gaze over the shoulder.
For cat/cow: Pull the chest forward & squeeze shoulders onto the back. Then pull shoulders forward spreading apart the shoulder blades. Breathe and move slowly between poses!
.
๐Ÿ’•FORWARD FOLD & HALF LIFT: My go-to hammy stretch! Bend the knees if you need to. On the lift keep the back as flat as possible. Tailbone slightly lifts up & shoulders come onto the back lifting your heart.
.
โœจUPDOG or COBRA: Two options here! Find which one feels good for you or switch it up. Both poses focus on lengthening the neck, pulling the heart forward & squeezing shoulders onto the back!
.
๐Ÿ’—MOVING DOWN DOG: You can stretch a lot from this single pose! Bend one knee at a time to stretch the legs. Bend both knees & lift hips high to stretch the shoulders & arms. Lift one leg at a time to stretch legs & hips. Get creative here ๐Ÿ˜œ Move and breathe!!
.
๐Ÿ˜DEEP LUNGE & RUNNERS STRETCH: I like to try different arms in the deep lunge. Sometimes add a backbend too! Keep the front knee over ankle and if this bothers the lower knee, add a blanket for extra cushion!
Runners stretch for the hammies! Use a block in both hands if you need some lift. Focus on a long spine and tilt the hips forward.
.
