🏆🏄♀️🌟Day 1️⃣3️⃣ of #WinnerInnerBalance with @cyogalab ➡️ #SuperPlow or #Halasana variation 🌟🏄♀️🏆
The deeper you head into the forward fold here (the more you pass the body through the space between the legs), the more challenging it gets to balance. One way to #practice this without having to worry about falling is to do it facing a wall, get fairly close so the sacrum touches it as you lean forward, then continue to pass the arms, head and upper torso through the space between the legs. If you’re ok, come out for a moment, scoop the feet an inch further away (a little distance in the foundation makes a bit difference when it arrives to the hips), then go back in again. If you have a set of stall bars or a heavy sofa/bed/piece of furniture that you can slide the hands under, ‘grab it’ with your hands, then lean the hips away, like you were going into a forward somersault. Go slow, only to an angle you still have control over the pose. When you attempt this in the middle of the room, you won’t go as far as with those props, but it’s a great exercise in concentration, besides the balancing skills required. Continue to reach through the arms and, you can shorten the gap between the legs and lift the back of the shoulders off the ground (shown in the pic). You’ll feel lighter and freer to move around, (if you’d rather drop them down, like in Plow, you can do that version too). Notice how the weight shifts towards the toes as you fold deeper so, keep pushing actively through both legs into the mat. More ideas coming up tomorrow, stay tune! Warning: some fun floor rolling might happen, place extra padding under if needed and let’s go for it!

Practise however much you can, when you can. Focus on, and be proud of what you do, rather than focusing on what you want to do." listen to what your body tells you!

Upward facing dog 🐶 It is important to get the alignment right in this pose, as we do it all the time (every vinyasa!). When done correctly, this postures strengthens the core, wrists, and low back, heals he shoulders and neck, opens the heart, tones the legs and glutes, and is a healing/energetic backbend. When done incorrectly, it can lead to back pain, low back pain, back injury, shoulder injury, and wrist injury. Save this for your personal practice and tag a friend that could benefit - they will thank you!! Read below for full details 👇👇👇Thanks for sharing @actionjacquelyn#inflexibleyogis ・・・
This pose will open your chest and heart, while simultaneously engaging and strengthening your triceps, upper back, and core.

•Shoulder blades towards each other, creating a support system in the spine for your heart
•Chest is open and proud
•Triceps and forearms are engaged, taking weight out of the wrists. Weight is in knuckles of fingers.
• Ground down through first finger and thumb, and there should be a slight pulling back sensation of the hands (down and back) just like yesterday’s Baby Cobra 🐍 post.
• Lower belly is pulled up, supporting lower spine
• Hug outer glutes
• Lengthen low spine
• Hip are lifted off floor, thighs are engaged, and knee caps are lifted off the floor
