Our Yoga School pose of the week is #Bhekasana #FrogPose

🔻 Bhekasana is a demanding backbending pose!  While it may not look big & dramatic - the work to create the shape is intense.  This pose not only develops flexibility in the quadriceps & shoulders, it also requires it.  The same goes for strength - builds & demands it!

🔻 Be sure to do a proper warm-up prior to working with Frog Pose.  My 2nd video demonstrates several postures that would be helpful prep.

This week we are working with Salabhasana or Locust Pose.

🔻 Locust Pose is considered a fundamental backbend.  It teaches the techniques of backbending (posterior pelvic tilt, equivalent curve) as well as building strength for deeper bends.  It should be a staple pose in a well-rounded practice.

🔻 While a full body warmup should precede Locust, it can be used as a prep for more challenging backbends, such as Wheel, Bow, and Pigeon.

Our Yoga School pose of the week is #EkaPadaBhujasana or #ElephantTrunkPose

🔻 Elephant Trunk Pose is a strong arm balancing pose, requiring strength from the core + the shoulder girdle, as well as external rotation in the hips.  Mastery of this pose leads to more advanced arm balances, such as 8-angle pose and L-Sit.

🔻 Preparation for this would include 1/2 happy baby, ankle to knee, plank, and boat poses.

Our pose of the week is Kurmasana or Tortoise Pose

🔻 Although the name, ‘Tortoise Pose’ indicates a shy withdrawal, it is an intense forward fold - you are literally closing in on yourself, as you use your lower body to deepen the fold.

🔻  Because of its intensity, prep for Kurmasana is vital!  In the 1st part of my video I demonstrate prepping the hamstrings, inner thighs, & shoulders. Take your time!!

Our pose for this week in Yoga School is the revered Lotus Pose. .

🔻 For many yogis & non-yogis alike, this pose represents the essence of the yogic zennified enlightened seat.  cue angelic chorus …  Let me let you in on some truth : no single pose makes you a yogi!  And you won’t achieve a better state of mind because of how you cross your legs.

This week we lengthen our side seams with our pose Parivrtta Janu Sirsasana or Revolved Head to Knee Pose 

🔻 Lengthening the side bodies yields deeper backbends + forward folds.  This action also helps to balance the body as we tend to favor moving in the sagittal plane rather than the frontal.

🔻  I have 2 videos today demonstrating 2 methods of entering the pose.  Please try both!!
