Day 10: #25daysofbuti 💋
#Anjaneyasana // #lowlunge
Although this is a #backbend version of the pose, low lunge is a staple in my #practice and I #teach it a lot. It helps to #ground the feet and lower body while establishing #strength ... like everywhere. I like to scissor the legs together to feel into my midline growing length in my spine. So each time I land in a version of a lunge I can build into a deeper backbend. A pose that takes #patience and a whole lotta #breath

🐇Here are some ways to stretch your side body using the wall or a door.🦆
1. Try out different hand, feet, and hip placements to see what works best for you. Also see if looking up or down works better for you.
2. Bend on the side but don't let the rest of your body twist forward or back. Try to maintain the bend as though your body was sandwiched between two metal sheets.
3. For the wall stretches, this is basically the "banana" stretch but intensified by the traction provided by the wall.
4. The wall stretches especially feel so good on my hips and helps me with lower back pain.
5. The stretch using your leg is for the highly flexible and it opens hip flexor as well as side body.

Whenever I feel closed off, I focus my yoga practice on slowing down, getting in some hip openers and heart openers, and taking time to meditate. By consequence, my emotions and mental space start to open up as well. This can be hard for me because I’m often the type to push everything down deep where no one can see it as my survival mechanism. I’ve got a lot of fear around sharing my emotions and vulnerabilities, so that’s often where I try to deepen my practice most. I’m getting there...and Dane likes to help me along the way 😘
I have no clue what in the world happened, but I've never been able to flip my grip like this...and never without a strap first to even get into position. Not even did I hold it...I closed my eyes and breathed into it. God it felt good. Happy to join another challenge. Let's do this. .
hips | my favorite openers
our history, daily life and emotions (fear, anxiety, sadness) are stored in our hips and fascia. these can lead to a lack of mobility. longer we suppress our emotions, the tighter our grasp.

some days these hip openers are uncomfortable and some days i can relax in these poses. regardless, practice hip openers and release. 💆🏻♀️
And so we come to the final day of #GratefulInDecember and I am grateful for my IG family. Without IG, I would be practicing yoga at home alone, and possibly my practice would have stagnated. However through my #yogatribe I am inspired everyday, and have tried new poses which never came up in my YTT. Super soldier anyone?! 😂 Yes IG can have its faults - don’t take it too seriously, and certainly don’t believe that these little squares are true representations of people’s lives - but I HAVE made genuine connections and friendships, and I love my IG fam ❤️😘😍So thank you, thank you for all of you, and thank you so much for joining @faithfoxmama and @healing.and.rebuilding and myself for this 12 day challenge. We know committing to that long can be tough, but reading your daily reflections of gratitude has been so heartwarming ❤️ If you are behind don’t worry, we will give you some time to catch up, but please make sure you followed the rules to be eligible for prizes 😘
Also an enormous shout out to all our wonderful sponsors - you’ve seen my @liquidoactive outfit everyday, but please swipe to be reminded of our other generous sponsors’ gifts.

🦎 Lizard pose for day 1 of #winteropenhips 🦎
This is a groan evoking pose for me. The flexibility of the inner thigh is just not there. Unfortunately the poses I hate the most are the ones that I need the most! Anyone feel the same about lizard pose?🤔
Esta postura me hace quejar.. ¡¡la flexibilidad del muslo interior no esta pa mi!! Desafortunadamente las posturas que odio son las que me hace faltan. ¿Alguien siente así con esta postura?🤔
