All I wanted to achieve with yoga was to strengthen my knees to protect them better for my running sessions.
It reminds me that it doesn’t matter what you try to achieve. As long as you show up consistently on your mat – meaning doing the actual work – you’ll get there.
This morning I was scrolling down my Google photos and I stumbled upon a video from last July when I still couldn’t do crow pose.
If you’re a runner, these are two yummy stretches that your quads will thank you for doing:
Just thought about sharing a simple flow if you want to build strength 💪
A few days ago, during the #YogaProgressParty challenge on Instagram, I had to share my split progress.
The Bakasana was the first arm balance I learned in yoga, and when I couldn’t get into the position the first time I tried it, I thought I’d never managed to do it. I couldn’t possibly understand how people could hold their whole body onto their arms without breaking them.
I’ve been practicing pincha on a daily basis for 3 weeks now. And at first, I naively thought it’d be easy since I knew how to headstand.
Yesterday I found the courage to try doing the tripod headstand again. And although I’m comfortable with the traditional headstand using forearms, this tripod version feels scary to me.
I’ve been practicing yoga on and off since 2012. I’d do just a couple of rounds of the sun salutation for maybe 2 or 3 weeks. Then at some point, I’d just stop and come back at it only when I’d feel down (mostly because of breakups…)
