Sunday crow for #crowfessionals and #longcrowhold2017 Lawrence was trying to figure out the logistics of crow ๐Ÿ˜‚ Apparently my account has been shadow banned ๐Ÿ˜ž if anyone knows how to fix it let me know. My pics arenโ€™t showing up in the hashtag feeds

Oh it felt like I hadnโ€™t done a #crowtaps drill in forever! I practiced this today to join #longcrowhold2017 with the #crowfessionals and @leighyogipilot. I did a few sets. This was my second one. Just 10 taps but about a 1 minute crow hold. These are amazing and I recommend them if you have #crowpose and #cranepose goals. Tagging some of you to post your crow practice today. Whatcha been up to today??? Canโ€™t wait to see. Use the hashtags, tag out host @leighyogipilot, some friends to join and tag me back so I know you played ๐Ÿค—. Hope your day is great! I am enjoying the cooler weather here. It wonโ€™t last long soon Florida will be back up to 80. . . . . Mat: @liforme Legwarmer toe socks: @perfectbalanceworld

๐Ÿฆ€ โ€” Flaviaโ€™s Daily Journal THU07- DEC17 14:30 โ€” ๐Ÿ•‰ Crow pose for today! And just because I wanted to show you my struggles with this beloved NOT asana ๐Ÿ˜… swipe left and see how I get prepared (mentally mainly๐Ÿคฃ) for approaching this asana. So this is my poor crow ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ for the #yogachallenges - Day 4 #yogiwinterwarmup with arm balance - Day 7 and last day #chooseyourresolution and we can choose whatever we want! And of course, I had to choose crow pose ๐Ÿ˜… Normally this asana is the first arm balance everyone learns but not in my case! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I really dislike this pose and totally avoid it since the beginning of my practice. My resolution for 2018 is to start feeling comfortable with it! I am committed to doing a weekly crow hold to build up strength with the #longcrowhold2017 #crowfessionals crew โ™ฅ๏ธ Thanks so much for this challenge! You are all so inspiring and seeing your practice and resolutions motivates me to keep up the good work ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ โ€” ๐Ÿ”€ What I love the most about yoga is that I feel like a child again ๐Ÿ™Š I wake up with a smile thinking about what surprises will my practice bring today, and everyday is different. Different teachings, different sensations. Everyday I learn something new about my body and myself and it also makes me more conscious of the little blessings that surround me every day. What do you love about yoga? Canโ€™t wait to read all your posts, beautiful yogis! โ™ฅ๏ธ โ€” #Yogalicia #loveneverfails #flavsdailyjournal #yoga #yogalove #practiceandallincoming #yogajourney #loveandalliscoming #yogahispana #yogaenespaรฑol #yoganetherlands #dutchyogi

#ChooseYourResolution Day 5 is any #armbalance and duh, I chose #crowpose! . If youโ€™ve followed along on my journey for a while, youโ€™ve probably seen me post a #longcrowhold2017 with the #crowfessionals. We are simply a group of yogis who have committed to doing a weekly crow hold to build up our strength to one day be able to float up to Handstand. . At one point I could hold it for two minutes, but with my finicky left wrist, Iโ€™ve backed off of my arm balance practice...that is until I recently discovered that I have no pain using #parallettes! So now, itโ€™s time for me to ramp up my practice again!! . Youโ€™re all welcome to join in! Simply hold a crow pose for as long as you comfortably can and post it on Sundays with the two hashtags: crowfessionals and longcrowhold2017. (We will change it to 2018 on the 1st) With bent arms, itโ€™s easier to hold longer and with straight arms itโ€™s harder...so donโ€™t get fixated on the time, just make sure you work hard. You choose what youโ€™d like to work, #bakasana or #kakasana, or both. Iโ€™ll share a video soon of how to work towards the press up to handstand too. . Your Lovely Hosts: @mama_layla_rose @leighyogipilot @beahappyamy @dianarae.yoga . Generous Sponsors: @NUXactive @onzie (my outfit) @mamarooyoga @yogapaws (my grip) @omgoddess.clothing .

It's already Day 5 of #ChooseYourResolution and you guys are killing it! Today we bring you an arm balance goal! . I have too many goals, if that's possible! This challenge is quickly bringing that to my attention ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I have had quite ambitious goals since the beginning of this journey but never really do anything in particular to accomplish these goals. Just a consistent practice, typically nothing fancy till maybe the end I'll play with inversions; but majority of the time my kids wake up from nap time before the fun stuff happens. Ironically enough, I still reach my goals. I'll randomly try something and BOOM! Hence, why my biggest goal is a well rounded practice (not only focusing on inversions but playing in arm balances too!) . #Lolasana - a mile marker goal. It's not a super pretty pose but if I ever want to float through this is a must โ˜๏ธ. I NEED to practice it more! I felt my core burning after trying it with blocks just a couple times! My other arm balance goals include crane - after injuring my wrist I can tell I'm lacking a lot of wrist strength and flexibility required for crane! And the ultimate- Crow Press! My co-host @leighyogipilot has a beautiful ritual of practicing #longcrowhold2017 with #crowfessionals! I think I'm going to be joining her!!!

never before, I felt doubtful doing #crowpose. in my practice this morning I had to flow through chaturanga because I couldnโ€™t hold it. so I told my arms this evening, โ€œletโ€™s try this and stop when you feel have to.โ€ . Iโ€™m happy with 5 breaths for week 47 #longcrowhold2017 #longcrowholdlatree. I will not push my arm too hard, I will wait until it is completely recovered, and breath longer. . #onsundayswecrow - #bakasana practice with @leighyogipilot and the #crowfessionals crew. .

Practicing #crowpose in thigh highs and a tutu takes it to a new level ๐Ÿ˜†. Tulle and nylon are so slippery, but I managed a few good holds for #longcrowhold2017 . Iโ€™ve been up for hours. My excitement is kicking in for the holidays. ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜œ which means less sleeping hours for me. So, today I spent the early morning just watching the tree lights while Zoee attacked the bottom ornaments ๐Ÿ™„. Iโ€™ve learned to put the tough ones towards the bottom. Today after yoga my family will decorate the front yard. I really wanted to decorate one of our palm trees as Christmas tree but I realize that is pretty challenging. Need to have a 20 foot ladder and we do not. So we will get creative in other ways. How are you decorating for the holidays? If you have any creative ideas I love to hear them. . . Donโ€™t forget to practice your crow today. Tagging of you have you to join in, but of course anyone is invited to join. Just tag our host Leigh and use the hashtags below. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ . . . . Join the #crowfessionals on Sunday hosted by @leighyogipilot and post a crow pose variation weekly. Your crow holds will improve if you do!

"And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.โ€ And it was so."-Genesis 1:30 - - A 'Creeping on earth' verse seemed fitting for monkeying around on these bars on a not freezing day in Pittsburgh.

Note to self: do #crowpose BEFORE applying sun screen. This use of weights is one I do often, but adding slippery limbs takes the pose to an entire new level. The holds were not very long for #longcrowhold2017 , but I will practice more later today. Headed to the beach for family boat day. Not lugging these weights along with me. So one quick crow on weights for #propandproud. Sun is stealing the show again but sun glare donโ€™t care! Hope you can spot me though ๐Ÿ˜‚. I will share my wall strength pose later.

Itโ€™s Sunday again and on Sundays we CROW with @leighyogipilot and the #crowfessionals for #LongCrowHold2017 ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿฆ This funky flying side crow is definitely one of my favorites and I was asked by @wapatoose for a demo. So here it is!! Set up for side crow and I like to set my base up first by extending my hand prior to lifting my legs. Shift your weight forward to bring your feet off the ground and extend the top leg out. The next step isnโ€™t just about lifting your leg because that will only let it get so high. You actually have to rotate your hips with a little twist to get your leg in line with your extended arm. Be sure to keep your weight forward and engage that core๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป Have fun and go kick some crow patootie๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ฅ .

I didnโ€™t forget to support @leighyogipilot and the #crowfessionals for #longcrowhold2017 I practiced #cranepose holds and can tell they are improving. I also wanted to thank Erin @_balance_in_life_ For the quick tip to โ€œpuffโ€ my back before straightening my arms. Worked so well! I think if I wasnโ€™t guarding a jammed middle finger (left hand) I could stay up longer. I use spider fingers and that helps but today I kept the jammed finger lifted. Crazy how one finger can impact practice. I included 3 pictures of my best attempts. . . I know itโ€™s late and but I am still tagging a few of you. Maybe you will. Maybe you wonโ€™t Crow today. Itโ€™s ok. ๐Ÿค— if you do, post a crow pose. Use the hashtags #longcrowhold2017 and tag @leighyogipilot and watch your crow or crane holds improve each week.

video sped up twice itโ€™s week 44 #longcrowhold2017 #longcrowholdlatree and 2017 will end in a few weeks. I just kept counting the weeks without realizing that I was actually counting down. my hold didnโ€™t grow longer than 1 minute and few seconds. or may be I always felt one minute is enough and stopped challenging myself. there were times when I asked myself โ€˜why do I keep doing this?โ€™. that is a rhetoric question because I know it gives me a lot. I should reset my goal. if holding is no longer interesting then I should do something that makes me keep going. do you #crowfessionals crew still think we should?

Sunday =practice โœจ๐Ÿ–ค video version that I left out before #ekapadabakasana love any variation of #crow from the beginning of my yoga journey Bakasana has been my foundation for strengthening my upper body for all arm-balances. Iโ€™m being extra careful today as my lower back has been a bit stiff lately. This does put pressure on your lower backs so always warm up well!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #crowfessionals #longcrowhold2017 ๐Ÿš @leighyogipilot

#ResolutionHandstand Day 6 #TuckHandstand Stretch: childspose _ Pretty sure eye started the hashtag #tuckthispose.๐Ÿคฃ And then one day eye got it and it felt like magic! But alas, didnโ€™t keep up with it, so now Iโ€™m trying to find it again. _ (getting weird symbols when typing I, so spelling it eye for now.๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ) _ This head against the wall thing really helps...just make sure to use the back of your head if you try it. No jammed necks on my watch! _ If any of you are curious about the #crowfessionals, itโ€™s just simply a group of us that work on holding #crowpose for as long as we comfortably can each week, so that one day we will have the strength to press from crow to #handstand. We post on Sundays #longcrowhold2017 and youโ€™re all welcome to join in! _ Make sure to check in with my amazing co hosts for their ideas on tuck! ___________________________________ Your Handy Hosts: @susanbishopyoga @yoga_supqueen @beahappyamy @leighyogipilot @bluesuntara Our AMAZING lineup of Sponsors: @aloyoga @infinitystrap @Byoganow @dharmayogawheel @Yogapaws @Kimberscanes @Beyondsurfingsilver - discount: SUNTARA10 ___________________________________ #TEAMresolutionhandstand365 #inversions #yogachallenge #yogatutorial #leighstutorials #leighsresolutiontuck #yoga #yogalife #yogi #yogaforeveryone #namaste #yoga365 #yogaholic #yogalovers #yogaprogress

The world needs more compassion! and it starts with you. Being compasionate impacts not only yourself, but those around you. Cultivating compassion in your life takes daily practice. So today, I wanted to share my favorite compassion exercise. Think of someone in your life you would like to increase understanding and love with, or of an old enemy, someone who irritates you, or even a stranger you see, and with focus and attention on this person, repeat to yourself: 1) Just like me, this person is seeking some happiness for their life. 2) Just like me, this person is trying to avoid suffering in their life. 3) Just like me, this person has known sadness, loneliness, and despair. 4) Just like me, this person is seeking to fulfill their needs. 5) Just like me, this person is learning about life. Repeat as many times as you need. Repeat with different people in mind. And start to feel happiness in your life and to those around you. ๐Ÿ˜Š Pay it forward with compassion โค โ–ช "If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." - Dalai Lama โ–ช On Sunday's we crow, on Monday's I post! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ˆ #Crowfessionals #LongCrowHold2017 โ–ช โ–ช โ–ช โ–ช #SideCrow #armbalance #balance #compassion #kindness #kindnessmatters #compassionateliving #bekind #becompassionate #spreadlove #practicecompassion

Iโ€™m back from the beach!! I didnโ€™t forget to support @leighyogipilot and the #crowfessionals for #longcrowhold2017 and I practiced crow holds at the beach today but sadly no pictures of that. I was only able to capture a few poses for my #igyogafamily and yoga challenges. Every single time I took out my camera out to take a quick pic or vid, a group of people stopped to watch which is ok but not right in the frame. I canโ€™t be the only IG yogi that this irks, right? Sometimes I will *politely* ask if they can move, but I didnโ€™t have the energy to ask them to move over 10 feet or give me 5 minutes to myself. I posted the tourists issues in my story of them stopping to take pictures. They are too funny. Like theyโ€™ve never seen a flying lizard or a headstand at the beach (kidding I know beach yoga can draw attention. Just wish not so much.) So my beach yoga was fun. Getting IG Pictures not so much this time. So anyway where was I? Oh yeah so here is my other practice of crow for today. I was trying for crane, but couldnโ€™t quite get arms straighter. Wasnโ€™t my best form, but it was good practice. Tagging a few to join. Post a crow pose. Use the hashtags #longcrowhold2017 and tag @leighyogipilot and watch your crow holds improve each week.

video sped up twice Day 7 #yogawithin #master . what I want to master? many! I got a โ€˜home workโ€™ from my teacher to practice pressing up from #crowpose to handstand. this is one of those. a BIG deal of course. because I havenโ€™t even been friends with handstand. I told him I might need years to get there, he shook his head, โ€˜you need less than that.โ€™ if my teacher has a big trust in me, how can I doubt myself? I can start with this exercise he taught me, #bakasana push up. wish me luck! ๐Ÿ˜… . thanks hosts and sponsors for helping me looking in, this has been yoga more than asanas ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™ . hosts ๐ŸŒน @sigikolbeyoga @natascha_yoga @aurorabowkett . sponsors ๐ŸŒน @dharmabumsactive @feetup @om_style @sigikolbeyoga . week 43 #longcrowhold2017 #longcrowholdlatree #crowfessionals #onsundayswecrow #iyskaphayoga #KAPHAYoga
