PRACTICE WITH ME ONLINE
Headstand. Woo hoo!
Don’t freak out. We’re all freaking out enough right now. Instead, work with me through a series of asanas, designed to help you lift upside down into this very fun, kinda-scary-but-once-you-nail-it-you-feel-incredible pose.
Backbends – Peak Pose: Wheel
To get into a backbend this deep, it’s not just about having a flexi spine. You need open shoulders and chest, and, strangely enough, (although, as yogis we know it’s all connected), you need flexible quad muscles. These are all the groups we’ll be working on, so we can open our hearts wide, and send all that loving energy out into the world. Or to someone who needs it.
Flexible Hips and Hamstrings – Peak Pose: Splits
The splits, or Hanumanasana, monkey pose, is one of those ultimate yoga poses. It’s working our legs, our hips, our core stability, and most definitely our minds. When I first started practicing on a regular basis, there was no way I was ever getting my hips all the way down. I used bolsters upon bolsters and would writhe in agony as I tried to hold the stretch as long as I could. And then I let it go. I stopped trying to work into the pose, and instead focused on my regular practice. I worked on lengthening my hamstrings, stretching my hip flexors, and strengthening my core. One day, I was feeling flexy after a class and thought I’d give it a go, and lo-and-behold, the splits! Practicing non attachment is a great lesson of yoga, and one I would recommend to bring to the mat every time.
Open Shoulders, Open Hips – Peak Pose: Compass
Challenging Balance – Peak Pose: Bird of Paradise
Building Strength: Arms & Core – Peak Pose: Crow
Open & Stretch the Legs – Peak Pose: Tripod Headstand
Because we’re moving into this pose from a wide-legged position, we’ll be working a lot into the legs, and finding deep stretch through the inner thighs. Generally a tight area, there are a lot of standing poses in this one to help us lengthen some of our largest muscles. And if you don’t go upside-down on your head, no problem! Maybe you find more depth in your forward fold, and that is a great place to be.
Balance, Backbends & Booty – Peak Pose: Dancer’s
In this class, we’ll work on all the elements required to come into Natarajasana in a way that might feel a bit new. After having a play, we’ll get into the pose we know and love so you can quickly take the next amazing photo for your Instagram account 😉
I hope you all enjoy getting your dance on with me!
