Great thing about yoga - is that there is always something for every occasion 🌟

If out of balance we feel off or stressed which can weaken our immune system.

Maintaining energetic balance can help us thrive on all levels☮

That said I'm sharing a Yin & a Yang flow to compliment each other - either for same day am/pm or different days when needing to bring balance with one or the other...

1. YANG 👉 1 hr Yang core yoga workout, exploring fiery dynamic movement. Activating with lunges, twists & heart openers to challenge our core. Focusing on strengthening weaker lower abs, to improve core stability & function.
IGNITE our core!🔥

Playing with some fun backbend drills🌟

Flow 👇
• shoulder stretch
• band supported dropping back
• single arm drop back
• supported legs straight
• wheel pose & lifting to stand
• shoulder stretch legs to side

Backbending can be one of the most healing movements for the body - opening and strengthening the full body, but its important to do it safely to avoid compression of the spine.

Tips 👇
Keep the core and thighs active drawing the tailbone toward the knees gently tucking the hips squeezing the knees toward each other all to protect the spine.
Also, warmup the full body before all deep stretch especially backbends🔥
Progress slowly and stop or ease off if you have any discomfort or if your breath becomes labored 🌬

Try these to feel more aligned and progress your wheel 🙏💚

Many reasons to love handstanding 🤸🏼‍♀️🤸🏼‍♀️

10 reasons to Handstand👇
1. Strengthen the upper body and core, and the legs too if fully engaged
2. Improved bone health to weight bearing points especially hands, arms, shoulders and back
3. Better balance and body awareness
4. Boost circulation to brain and lungs energizing the body and improving concentration
5. Detoxification and purification through movement of lymph, boosting immunity and promoting elimination
6. Relaxes and rejuvenates the body reversing the effects of gravity activating parasympathetic system when legs are above heart – more so in longer supported holds
7. Physically changing perspective helps give perspective and improve mood
8. Working toward a goal that is challenging can build confidence
9. More patience acknowledging progress takes dedication
10. Handstands are a healthy and fun way to challenge yourself and explore movement

Tips👇
If newer to handstands its always best to start out supported and the easiest variation to begin with is stag legs at the wall.
Just be cautious, listen to and honor your body.
Remember to grip the ground and press more through the thumb, 1st and 2nd fingers, gaze to the thumbs, and squeeze everything in tight. And, if handstanding isn't your thing there are other options like legs up the wall, shoulder stand, forward fold, headstand or forearm balance each with benefits of their own ☯️

Wishing everyone a fun and safe 4th & don't forget the healing inversions 🤗🎆🎆❤🤍💙

Dynamic move with many benefits 🌟

Single leg reverse table with tricep dip transitioning into L-sit 🙌

Come into reverse table lift one foot, ground and press the other foot to lift and level the hips while also bending elbows for a tricep dip and amazing shoulder stretch... slowly using the supporting leg actively to move into L-sit or staff pose, alternating the single leg being lifted after each rep, and L-sit builds strength pressing hands isometrically even if hips don’t raise off the ground🔥
Continue pressing opposite foot and lifting the other return to reverse table lifting and dip elbows actively opening the chest... keep going, moving with the breath 🌬
This movement will strengthen the total body -- especially upper body and core, but also the legs 👍
5 reps per side switch sides as you go, rest and go again 💪
The move that does a lot!
See if you agree? 😉
Happy Friday💚

Preview for new flow to fire-up the CORE 🔥🔥

Core Strength is important for spinal stability, good posture and balance in yoga and nearly all movement ☯️

The psoas muscles being key, are hip flexors connecting the hip and thigh to spine and facilitate movement, unifying the top half of the body with the bottom; and if tight or weak cause low back pain 🙄

In this practice I'll guide through a 40 min core yoga workout, moving through a sequence designed to activate and challenge the full core, especially the deeper psoas muscles with various postures to create more stability with movement, correct muscle imbalances and help prevent injury 🕉

Roll out your mat and let's tighten-up core areas prone to weakness!

Enjoy this strong core class 💪
Have a wonderful day🙏☮💗

Leg Strength & Release flow ~ just 3 root balance challenging moves ☯️💪

1. Pistal Squat 👉 (3 slow controlled reps) going only as far as comfortable.

Helpful tip ~ rather than avoid them if you can't do a full pistal squat or saying you can't, begin by going partial or halfway down, and over time getting deeper as you build strength -- think you can👍

2. Warrior III Hip Hinges 👉 (3 slow reps) clasping arms overhead drawing core in with hips square and level, slowly hinge forward lowering hands toward the ground - trying to keep the arms up by the ears you can see 👀 as I lean forward mine aren't quite at my ears in -- but that is the goal.

When feel slight hamstring tightness, begin to hinge back up with arms reaching high, back leg actively engaged lowering toe close to ground while keeping the body extended as continue for 3 reps.

3. Half Moon into Sugar Cane Pose 👉 (3 full breaths) come into half moon with fingers down on ground for support keeping hips and shoulders stacked move in to sugar cane pose by bending top knee bringing top foot to top hand and pushing the foot into the hand to deepen the hip and shoulder opening and release.

Complete one side, then the other alternating 2-3 times through moving with breath🌬

Enjoy this lil flow -- and ignite your root chakra repeating the mantra "I am grounded, centered and safe" ❤🙏

Peace to all ☮✨

Post Flow Handstand Play🤗

Spending more time at home has many of us in constant spinal flexion with rounded shoulders, and in need of some heart opening stretch to balance us out💗
Hollow Back shape eliminates the hip flexors from the mix, flexing the hips while extending, opening the heart and lengthening the spine as well as the shoulders and front core☯️

Working on different hollow back handstand shapes todsy and making an interesting upside down observation🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️
Taking notice of the sensation with each leg shapes opening the spine in a slightly different place👇
1. Stag Legs ~ feeling some in lower and middle back
2. Eagle Legs ~ more in middle and upper back
3. Tuck Legs ~ mostly upper back
Handy Tip -- be sure to grip the ground with the fingers to create that stable base👐

Practice supported or try with hollow back options in forearm stand with these leg positions - which feels a bit different.

If inversions aren't your thing, try puppy or chair pose options or simply just bending forward and extending the arms on a counter top or wall - basically any pose with the hips tucked and upper body extended💕

Bring on the hollow backs and healing sunshine 🌞🌞
