And for those of you who have asked me about this one: This asana is called #visvamitrasana and it comes in the #thirdseries of #ashtanga vinyasa yoga. It’s slightly different than the variation of what a lot of you might know as Visvamitrasana because in Ashtanga you don’t grab the foot with the upward hand; instead you work on keeping the foot up with the strength of the leg and glutes while leaving the arm extended upwards - almost like what you would think of in a side plank. The key is to really get that inner thigh high up on the arm - think shoulder - and then just #doyourbest to keep it there. Really ground down through the opposing foot and don’t let your hips fall. You can see my butt and legs are really working here. 😚 . The transition from visva is a lot of fun (read: challenging) too. Maintaining the lifted leg extended you return to #chaturanga arms and using the bandhas, lift up the back leg in #ekapadakoundinyasana ii. There’s the option to return to chaturanga maintaining the leg straight or bending it, but it’s a lot of time on your hands so be ready to have arms and shoulders, center, legs - the whole lot of it, really - working at this point. . I’m trying to not overstretch my left hamstring these days - as it’s still causing me problems - so you can even try transitioning with a straight leg on one side, and bending the other like I do here. I mean, hey why not?!? 😚😜 . This asana requires great strength and flexibility so have a lot of patience if you’re giving it a go. . Now back to Monday! . 🦎👣🐢 #talcomrajavideo .

A lil Bali throwback video (filmed by @andy.garlick ! who I miss!!!!) & a story... 📖👀 • • I just moved to Houston, so I’ve been checking out new studios whenever I have time to take a class. So last night I went to a 10 PM candlelight flow at a studio nearby. Going somewhere new always stresses me out because there are so many little things you don’t know that make it obvious you’re an “outsider:” like, where do I put my stuff? Is this a studio where everyone’s silent in the room? Are booty shorts socially acceptable here? (lol) I know no one is actually paying attention or cares, but I’m just an anxious lil ma ok? anyone else? Anyway, so I’m waiting to go in the room and when the instructor says we can go inside, I pick up my mat kinda abruptly and it whacks into a guy next to me who is also waiting. And he was kinda an a**hole about it—nothing egregious, he just was visibly annoyed even after I apologized repeatedly. For whatever reason, the whole moment really upset me and I walked into the studio blinking back tears. I was sitting on my mat still thinking about it when the guy next to me tapped me and said “thought you might want some blocks,” handed me his, and got up to grab two more for himself. I was so wrapped up in the whole mat-whacking crisis that I was kinda an a**hole to Block Guy!!! I felt so self-conscious about being teary-eyed that I kinda just blinked at him and barely even said thank you. The instructor had us place our mats in a circle, and the whole class I looked at those two men and thought about how even our smallest actions can set off a chain reaction. Mat Guy was rude to me, so I was rude to Block Guy. (Not to blame Mat Guy–I still should have been nice! And maybe someone was rude to Mat Guy before class!) After the class, I told Block Guy thank you for the blocks. And when I picked up my mat to leave (*without* hitting Mat Guy this time), I turned to Mat Guy and said “See, I’m improving! I hope you have a really great night.” Because being nice sets off a chain reaction too. 🐛 • • • All that to say.... let’s all be nice this weekend ok??? HAPPY FRIDAY 🤠😺✌🏻✨
