yogavered. What is your yoga dream?

Mine was a inversions. 
A handstand was some

What is your yoga dream? Mine was a inversions. A handstand was something I didn’t even dream of because I had such weak arms and shoulders, and just the thought of falling from it the wrong way kept me from trying. But during my yoga journey I’ve come to realize that my body can do more than I ever gave it credit for. I know what you’re about to ask me -HOW- The answer is -ALONE 🤗- for 3 years, practicing against the wall, practicing at the beach, practicing on the grass, and falling over and over again, and again. And so many times I told myself ‘heck I aint gonna pull this one through’, but I still kept on trying, because I didn’t had anything to lose. Today I can stand on my hands, and that feels pretty awesome.

This is my practice. And no, I didn’t get confused. The left video was Today and the right one was Yesterday. Sometimes things can be so smooth and easy and sometimes it’s simply isn’t. And it’s frustrating... it is, because yesterday I really nailed it, and today I came to my mat and it was clear to me that I was going to do it again, and the more I tried the more I failed.... so what? I fold the mat and decided to post all of my bad attempts (well, not all of them, we only have 1 minuet here ☺️). I think that our practice reflects the way we are, and what we need to pay attention to, perhaps my body was trying to tell me I should take it easy today 🧘🏻‍♀️.

*FOR THOSE WHO STRUGGLE WITH HANDSTAND TUCK* . This is an old video and not the best quality, but I thought I’d repost because some of you have told me that getting up with two legs feels impossible. . #angelasyogatutorials . . 🤸‍♀️Start in chair pose. Bring your feet, knees, and thighs together. Reach your arms up alongside your ears and spread your shoulder blades (protract) apart. Take a deep inhale and as you exhale draw your front ribs down and lift your frontal hip bones up. (those two knob like bones on the front of your hips) You will see my ribs poke out a few times during this video 😆but do your best to keep your ribs knit and belly engaged the entire time. . 🤸‍♀️Take and inhale and as you exhale bring your hands to the floor, keep your arms straight and grip with your fingertips as you tuck your knees towards your chest, your heels towards your bottom and stack your hips over your hands. Inhale as you come back into chair pose and reach your hands up and repeat. . Tips! . 💡In this variation you are using momentum to your full advantage to get up, which is great, but have a wall or a spotter until you get the hang of it. If you are used to looking between your thumbs to find balance dropping your gaze can feel weird at first since your head is no longer acting as a bit of a counterbalance to your hips. You will have to learn to control Balance through your fingertips, pushing through your shoulders and drawing your thighs to your chest. Pushing into your fingertips and knuckles will prevent you from going over so push the ground away hard and grip with your fingers! . . 💡Start slowly shifting the gaze, getting to get comfortable. Start slow and work to eventually bringing your head through if it starts to feel good! . . 💡Do NOT bend your elbows! Push through your hands and shoulders and keep your arms 100% straight the entire time! . . 💡Don’t forget to lift your hands and come back to chair between tucks. Wanna practice handstands with me?

#365handstand2019 - and it begins (excited to see my / all of our growth in a years time) PS so much love to all of you joining me. I will have a drill for you tomorrow and every following Monday 👍 Day 1 = Journal entry to be compared in 365 days lol 😝 I'm here for the long run and being consistent. Day one is about finding where your at. I comfortably land an average of 30 sec in a pretty ish straight line. I can get there by jumping, pressing and of course using the wall. My goal for this year= - Deminish my hamstring and shoulder restrictions (straigther handstand) - The stamina to do 10 sun salutation with handstands - Help 50 people hold their first handstand - Hold a min in 5 different handstand shapes shapes - Press from EPK to handstand and back - 5 handstand push ups - Be able to 1 hand handstand What's this all about = The goal is do a handstand everyday for the year. Anyone looking to have a bad ass hanstand I think should join me. Re post this and tag a Freind to join in with you. This is 100% a growth challenge. I'll be posting on Mondays each week a drill to work on for the week. Then mile stones if achieved between this. Every other day will be in my story. This won't be easy but nothing that is worth it usually is 👍 To do this = Keep it measurable : Video on the first to show where you are at now. Repeat every three months or even monthly. Set mini goals... Mine so far= - Able to average a min hold - Have no restrictions in hold (increase my mobility; shouldes, hamstrings & hips) - More goals to come on first day post Step 3 = make a plan Every Monday I will be putting up drills to do for the week. 1/4 Basic drills & using Paul the wall 2/4 jump drills and freestanding 3/4 transitions and fun shit 4/4 what ever I can come up with 😝 Hope some of you join me so we can keep each other accountable 😉 -------------------------------- #wriststretch #handstand #handstandpractice #handstandjourney #handstand365 #handstandeveryday #handstandtraining #2019goals #myhomepractice #inversionjunkie #armbalanceaddict #handstandresolution #calisthenics #inversionaddict #gymnastics

Keeping it real. I have this habit of showing you guys the downfalls of my practice. My Instagram account is like a great tool to show many people that we are not perfect, and a yoga practice was not meant to be perfect. In my opinion yoga practice is a sacred time for your body and soul, it is a moment you take to observe yourself and feel yourself. And you definitely don’t have to take it so seriously ☺️, simply enjoy it.

I absolutely {L❤️VE} practicing my handstands daily because I’m starting to feel my body and understand what it should be doing. Before I would just kick up and just hope and pray for a good handstand. 🤞🏽 But the more I practice, the more I am self aware of what my body is doing (or not doing). Today was extra special because I definitely felt something different in my shoulders than before. And what I noticed after my slow motion playback was that although I didn’t get much air time, my posture improved (less banana back 🍌).

Day 50 of #365handstand2019 . Just because i am out of your site.....doesn’t mean handstands are out of my mind. . Still practicing every day.....seriously, I am, but I don’t want to bore you with the barely perceivable progress. . Thanks goodness Ray gave me permission to keep using Paul the Wall. We have become very close. . But I will share these drills: . Stretch and Strength. . 30 hamstring pulses - 3 rounds using different ferry positions. . Parallel feet, Toes out, Toes in. . Forearm wall plank. . Straight arm wall plank. . Knee to elbow - hold 5 seconds. Wall plank. . I actually am holding my handstand a bit longer without the wall. Or maybe it’s wishful thinking. . @raymurse_yoga . My goals: as a daily reminder: . 1. Better shoulder and hamstring mobility so I can one day press into a handstand. 2. Open the hips and strengthen the hips so again.....get that press. 3. Get over my fear and learn how to kick up away from the wall. Learn how to fall. 4. Be able to do a handstand in the middle of the room 5. Hold the handstand long enough for it to look like a handstand 6. And if I am going for broke here.......press into a handstand

I liked @kutzms idea of a drill for today’s #yogisintransition2 so I made one with plank>down dog>alternating leg kick ups at the wall. I never kick up with my left leg but I remember @kericyoga saying alternating leg kick up drills help even it out. It was very meditative and cardio like at the same time. ✌🏼 - Hope your day is going well! - Your Hosts: ⭐️ @activefityoga ⭐️ @kutzms ⭐️ @sandragon21 ⭐️ @sarka.yoga ⭐️ @smilewitch .

DAY 51 (Right) An interesting thing happens when you make an attempt half way through a workout instead of waiting until the end; you’re not as tired...who knew? 😬 It was such a random idea I only tried one attempt. And then my attempts at the end of the workout weren’t as long and I definitely felt “heavier” 🤣 Gonna have to mix it up moving forward. - 51/365 Long hold: 37 secs-Day 38 (I only count from when my feet are together FWIW) @raymurse_yoga is a boss #365handstand2019 #handstand365 #handstandchallenge #handstandchallenge2019 #resolutionhandstand2019 #handstandjourney #handstandpractice #handstandeveryday #yogaover50

나 1년전에 핸드스탠드 아예 못햇는데 지금 나 요가하는모습 보니까 너무 신기해요. 나의 몸아~ 진짜 고마워 ㅠㅠㅠ so thankful for my body that allows me to practice yoga 🙏 This video is great because you can visually see how much the alignment is important for keeping your balance in handstands. The goal is to form a hollow body where the lower back is as flat as possible and the ribs aren't flaring out. Why is this the goal you may ask? Or not but here's the quick answer anyway~ The spine has a natural curvature to it so when you make a hollow body then the bones stack right on top of each other resulting in the muscles needing to do less work making it seem effortless to balance on your hands! ✌ I'm still working hard on flattening out that lower back completely but still pretty happy with all those transitions I managed to do on my hands ✊ but sadly towards the end you can visually see the second I lose my alignment when my lower back arches that I lose my stability and come down. . . . . . #yoga #handstandjourney #handstands #hollowbody #inversionjunkie #inversionaddict #handstand365 #yogainspiration #fitness #yogajourney #unbreakablekimmyschmidt #요가 #핸드스탠드 #핸드스탠딩 #물구나무서기 #물구나무 #요가하는여자 #연습중 #암발란스 #힘 #코어 #피트니스 #운스타그램 #데일리 #일상
