Good morning. Here is the shot for the day – astravakasana – a definite favorite of mine. Taken outside The Ashram, thank you Vanessa.
Have a beautiful Friday 🙂
Namaste! Here’s today’s installment of #shesgotlegs challenge.
Spinal twists are so beneficial, warmed me up nicely on this weird weather day. Forecast predicts T-storms, very unusual for Seattle. Feels like summer to this Minnesota native. 🙂
Here’s my shot of the day. You may think it looks painful but it really felt awesome after Claudia’s Power Class this morning. I was fully warmed up and getting supine felt fantastic.
Here is another pose I’m working on for later in the Challenge. I hope I’ll be able to pull off a better one but this is deeper than I’ve gotten in this pose previously. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to balance on my tailbone, but that is why the wall is my friend.
I thrashed all day wanting to get the “perfect shot” sans photographer. I was given free reign to do any backbend I wanted. Ohhhhh the wonderful agony of picking something. But the Basenjis don’t have opposable thumbs.
Luckily I found humans at The Ashram willing to help me out. Here it is….drumroll 🙂
I’ve been dying to post, but just got home from a beautiful Yin Class. Damn I love teaching Yin……
and a few other shots that I considered…..
I’ve been getting a lot of comments on being a gumby. Yep, it is true. But maybe I’m actually a rubberband girl….I leave you with this…..
It is a beautiful day here in Bothell. I’m finally taking some time to eat – I’ve been practicing yoga on my patio a whole lot this morning. Changed the sheets, which I’m very grateful to have done. Dishes next I guess. At this rate I’ll never make it to Power at 3 p.m.
Really looking forward to teaching Yin at The Ashram at 4:30 p.m. I hope that I can get someone to take my final shot for #backbendgonewild. I really wish Harlan wasn’t working today, the Basenjis can’t really help me out here…
Ok, I am really excited by my #backbendsgonewild choice of the day. I was hope hope hoping that I’d be able to touch my head with my toes. I was pretty close the other day when I wasn’t warmed up, I figured I stood a chance after class. Thank you Davin and Shannon for making this shot possible. You KNOW I needed you both for it.
#backbendsgonewild – There is a final posture tomorrow for #backbendsgonewild. He’s not telling us what it is and I am DYING of curiosity….. I will be sad for this challenge to end, I have REALLLLLLLY enjoyed it
#shesgotlegs is really going to start getting difficult soon….. I am worried about Day 29 in particular, but we’ll see if I can pull it off in a creative fashion.
