#questforthepress continues 💪 1st video: I was able to half-pike press off the wheel in pincha for the first time 🙌 I just can't keep my leg straight yet. I promise my head didn't touch the floor at all. 2nd video: headstand presses to build strength and muscle memory for more pincha presses 👊 1st pic: compression drills, particularly l-sits 😥 2nd pic: endurance holds and alignment work in a straight #pinchamayurasana #pinchaplay #pinchapress #pinchapractice #forearmpress #forearmstand #compressiondrills #corework #coreworkout #abasanas #yogawheel #yogaprops #yogapractice #homeyogapractice #wisconsinyoga #wisconsinyogis #selftaughtyogi #practiceandalliscoming #yogajourney #myjourney #yogaeverydamnday #yogaworkout

Why the good things have to come to end so quick? ! . I can't help, but to be lil sad it's the last day - I loved this challenge and awesome flows our amazing hosts came up with. . It's crazy to think I used to hate flowing, connecting poses and trying to transition was a nightmare for me. These days I absolutely love it. . So if you are anything like the old me - don't give up on yourself. Flowing comes easier with practice. I will never be graceful sexy yoga kitten in my flows, but I enjoy playing with it so much. . I kept putting myself through all challenges taking me out of comfort zone and at some stage it started paying of. Do the same! It's worth it! __________________________________________________ #NamasteFit2Connect . Dec 5 - 10. 6 days of mini sequences to flow to or from balances! 💙💙💙💙 . .

🔥🧘🏻‍♀️[forearmfriday] Recently I’ve been spending a lot of time solo. “Alone time” is nothing new to me, but over the past couple of months my relationship to the experience of being ‘alone’ has shifted. Yes, I have felt lonely at times, but mostly I’ve felt a sense of peace and calm that I’ve long needed. It seems as if I have come home 🏡 to myself. I could talk about this using a bunch of psychotherapy jargon, but ultimately it all boils down to the same thing I find myself telling my clients. Alleviating suffering requires a shift in your relationship to yourself, which includes harboring a more compassionate attitude to your feelings, circumstances, and history. Taking accountability for your actions and reactions toward yourself and others in order to be the change, not just be a passive recipient of changing circumstances. Anyhow, that has been on my heart ♥️ , and this forearm press is new. @namasteasfuck [ #yogabuttarmy #namasteasfuck ] - - - – - - – #yoga #yogisofinstagram #yogini #yogisofig #instayoga #yogagram #yogagirl #yogalove #yogadaily #yogapractice #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeverywhere #forearmstand #forearmpress #pinchamayurasana #pincha #pinchapress #forearmbalance #iamwellandgood #mindbodygram #yogavideo #inversionaddict #yogaaddict #instayoga #losangeles #fitness #yogafun #yogaflow #forearmfriday

Pincha press. Hollowback lotus. Real time. All the wobbles and adjustments (and hitting my foot on the railing while I press up, as per usual). These are my favorite parts of practice to share 🖤 . . . . . . . #yogagram #yogavideo #yogaflow #pincha #pinchamayurasana #foreaemstand #presshandstand #pinchapress #abasanas #letsstartyoga #lotus #yogadaily #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #yogaeverydamnday #yogajourney #aloyoga #beagoddess

Stepping waaaay out of my comfort zone. I never post videos of my little flows. This year is coming to an end and I guess it's time to do some more things that scare me. Shout out to @caramiaprovenzano for putting together a 25 day yoga challenge; everyday for the rest of the year I will be on my mat. - - I've had to modify my practice a bunch so I can let my wrist heal, so I'm taking out handstands and almost all wrist heavy postures. Seeing @the_southern_yogi post her wrist free flow earlier today gave me the inspiration I needed because I've been feeling blah without my handstand and arm balance practice. - - It felt good to move; you can't tell by my facial expressions but I'm happy and enjoying myself. No music because I don't want Instagram to disable my account. 🤷🏽‍♀️ - - - - #yogaeverydamnday #myyogajourney #mattherapy #injurymodifications #mysolstyle #niyamasol #pinchapress #babycrow #resolutions #beagoddess homepractice #25daysofyogachallenge #latenightyoga #solsisters #yogaforeverybody #forearmstand # #formergymnast #wristfreeflow #ohmerde #iprefertobeupsidedown #day1

Hiiiii 👋🏼 popping in for a quick sec to say hello yogis 😊 I wanted to show you guys I’ve been working on a few new entrances : one leg press & Jump 😝 which I never saw myself doing at first but - progress is as rewarding as ever 💝 until next time 💫 . . . . . #pinchaparty #pincha #forearmstand #pinchapress #progressnotperfection #pinchaprogress #hiittoinvert #workoutmotivation #yogaeverydamnday #yogisofinstagram 🌙☀️💖

During the Ana Forrest Advanced TT we were given the task to ask our spirit each day what it needs. Today I had to run, sing and dance. I didn't get a chance to dance so here's a little yoga dance. 💃 What is your spirit calling you to do?

So I followed Carmen’s instructions today and worked #forearmstand drills, partially because I know Carmen’s advice is always awesome and partially because pressing and lowering in #pincha is exactly where my work is right now. So here are 3 presses I tried - split, puppy, and straddle. I can’t get past that halfway point with the straddle press yet. Sorry about the slow video but I wanted to post this so I can see where my press skills were and I feel I need to see them real time. Still so much work here!! - - #fortheloveofyoga #yogapractice #mypractice #pinchamayurasana #pinchapress #keeppracticing #inversion

Practicing my #pinchapress with the help of a #yogawheel. This is so hard and frustrating! But it feels good to set a goal and work slowly towards it. One day I’ll be able to do it without the wheel 💪🏼 #yoga #yogainspiration #yogaeverydamnday #pincha #forearmstand #inversion #yogateacher #twofeet

#ChooseYourResolution Day 6 is any #inversion I’ve decided to get that #pincha straddle press dialed! . I have split press and puppy press pretty regularly, but straddle press is another story. I did it once a few weeks ago so I know it’s close...it’s just going to take consistent practice. But for now I need more strength! . So at the very minimum, I vow to work on it every #forearmfriday. Who else is with me?! . I’ve shared my warm up here and several attempts. The key for me is to get my shoulders nice and open and fired up, as well as my core. Toe taps work to fire up the core even if you just do them one foot at a time. Give it a try if you never have!💖. . Loving all your Resolution poses and other profound thoughts you all are sharing! Thank you for sharing your journey with us! Together we are stronger! Keep rockin friends!! . Your Lovely Hosts: @mama_layla_rose @leighyogipilot @beahappyamy @dianarae.yoga . Generous Sponsors: @NUXactive @onzie (my outfit) @mamarooyoga (my mat) @yogapaws (my grip) @omgoddess.clothing . Here’s the list we are working from: . Day 1) Standing Balance ✔️ Day 2) Backbend ✔️ Day 3) Forward Fold ✔️ Day 4) Hip Opener ✔️ Day 5) Arm Balance ✔️ Day 6) Inversion ✔️ Day 7) Yogis Choice . #yogachallenge #wearyourmat #igyoga #forearmstand #pinchapress #pinchamayurasana #pinchavideo #leighstutorials

A lot can be said for engaging the mind and envisaging where you want to be before putting it into action. Considering every intricate detail of pincha puppy press in my mind and slowly breaking it down into a step-by-step process suddenly made what felt impossible so much simpler. ————————————————————— . . . . . . #puppypress #pinchaplay #pinchapress #forearmbalance #inversionplay #inversionjunkie #ashtangayoga #igyoga #instayogafam #yogi #yogaflow #vinyasaflow #yogavideo #onebreathatatime #practiceandalliscoming #yogaeverydamnday #fitnessinspo #fitnation #loveyoga #armbalancenation #strengthtraining #dailypractice #practicedaily #abasanas

@terris_leigh - My attempt at #karandavasana for your #sdy. I hope you like it. I am applying the press idea to this since I still haven't learned how to do lotus in an inversion without using my arms. . . . I shall pass the tag onto @lottasebzdayoga @yogiaubrey @elliegriffinyoga to play any pose they feel like if they have the time🙌🌻 . . . ____________________________ #yogaeverywhere #yogifun #yogadude #broga #yogalove #igyogis #yogaanytime #yogalife #yogacrazy #yogimen #yogafamily #yogatransformation #yogatransition #tuesdaytransformation #pinchamayurasana #pinchapress #pinchalotus

Working on my funky pincha press. And lowering into funky crow. I realized I haven’t funky pressed in a bit and I’ve actually lost my straddle for funky pincha. 🤦🏻‍♀️ . Need to work it back into my practice!!!💪🏼💪🏼 .

When I watch video back I typically scrutinize my alignment in each pose. I forget to look at how far I’ve come and acknowledge the work I put in. I’m always searching for more, better. I thought that drive was my strength, but I’m quickly learning it to be holding me back. Learning to let go of expectations...

Welcome to #ConnectTheAsanas2 Day 5⃣(Monday): #camelpose ➡ ❓➡ #lunge . Your task for Day 5 is to connect Camel Pose to a Lunge with ONE in between pose! . I really love all the creativity you guys are bringing to this challenge! Let's kick off the new week with some bendy poses! I chose to connect with a #funkypincha 🙃 . I had to speed this up times two, so I was actually moving pretty slowly. Never would have thought the day would come when I'd choose to flow with a funky Pincha! It was actually pretty fun and the funky arm flowed nicely from the camel. #lowlungepose was an nice way to finish! . Enjoy today and make sure to warm up for your bends. Actually, low lunge is a great warm up for bends unto itself! . Please check out my lovely co-hosts for more inspo! We can’t wait to see what you come up with today!!! 🙌🏻 . .

For me Pressing #funkypincha still tough beside pikepress pincha... Corework needed.. 😁 Tips from me : do it before you got tired 😂 after proper warm up ofcourse.. And i felt more easier lifting with one leg tuck..as you can see at this video... 🙏 . . . .

Our first brand ambassador, @bowlingandyoga !! Go follow her and feel the inspiration. Strong, beautiful and confident is Rebecca! #Repost @bowlingandyoga (@get_repost) ・・・ So guess who had their first "fashion photo shoot" today? 🤣🤓😍📸 complete with abandoned garages, old tow trucks, and railroad tracks behind warehouses 😎 (not to mention the people out having their lunch break watching me pincha on a railroad track LOL) . Anyhoo, I had a total blast scouting locations and taking pics with some awesome people today (@essentially_fit and our super amazing photographer...does he have an Instagram? Edited: yes he does! @thejoshulmer) And thanks to @nashvillestrength.co for letting me be a part of the launch! . I got to wear some really cool fitness apparel today, and I couldn't wait to get home and flow in my @killvanityapparel leggings and tank. Aren't they cool??? I kept forgetting which leg had the graphic, so I had to turn around a lot so that it would be on camera again LOL. This is a three and a half minute flow sped up to 45 seconds. My favorite part is the big flock of birds that flies away during the second seated twist 😍 . ➡ AND just a friendly reminder about my flow challenge starting TOMORROW with my girls @alli_roush and @jadebellyyoga #ConnectTheAsanas2 ❤✌🏻❤ Check back with us tonight when we drop the first post!!!!

They said I could be anything, so I became a baby rooster. Really don't like the splaying elbows but I shall just blame it on the fact that I am pressing on laminated wood. #blamesomemore #fullofexcuses #fakeyogi

The hub of calmness- that's your heart. That's where God lives within you. So stop looking for answers in the world. Just keep coming back to that center, and you'll always find peace. ❤ Elizabeth Gilbert . Opening my heart and back up today. Feeling it all. That center, the creation of balance, the sweet spot of surrender.

I have always believed it imperative to discern between whether it was my over analytical mind speaking fear or my body telling me I am not ready for a pose. Fight fear with faith, as Kino aptly puts. But it is also critical that we value safety as our priority. Wanted to go into full hollowback lotus but aborted mission halfway because my forearms were losing grip and the last time I checked Lululemon doesnt sell new spines. ps. it is very strange and scary staring at urself in the mirror going into hollowback.

#pinchamayurasana with focus on reversed press. Whether on my hands or on for-arms, lowering 180° to 90° is manageable but I can’t keep my hips up passed the pike position. I’m thinking my shoulder placement needs to move forward to counter balance but I’ll be watching for posts to learn more.

Pratikte ne yaptığımı değil nasıl ve neden yaptığımı araştırıyorum. Çünkü yaptığım şey eğer o yolda kendime iyi gelen bir süreçten geçiyorsam zaten gerçekleşiyor. Ne zaman kastığımı ve ittiğimi farkettim tekrar yumuşamaya çalışıyorum. Beden yumuşadıkça zihnim, zihnim yumuşadıkça bedenim yumuşuyor. Hayatın içinde de ittiğiniz, kasarak almaya çalıştığınız şeyler olursa bakın sonucuna.

#fridaypresscrew fun . . One of those days where I feel moderately strong and the weather is beautiful so it was a decent little practice. 🌞 . First up is a regular #puppypress into #lotushandstand . Then, my first time trying that little #halftuckpress in a pincha (man it's going to be a minute until I get enough shoulder strength to straddle or pike press! ) and I managed one in handstand, also. Also the standbys of #straightlegpuppypress in both #handstand and #pincha 😍 . . I know all I'm talking about is yoga teacher training 🤓 LOL but I'm starting to worry already about leading a class for an hour plus. 😓 So...I might try to start posting more flow videos 🤔 Tag me in any flow challenges you see coming up? . Speaking of....check out my fun challenge with the amazing @jadebellyyoga and @alli_roush that starts the 30th #ConnectTheAsanas2 ✌🏻 a good way to get comfortable with being creative and linking poses together.

Quick yoga break from the best lazy Black Friday full of Christmas movies, decorating, and baking. Still basically face plant when I do pincha presses but still working on it and loving it!🎄✨🙏🏼 #liveisgood #pinchapress #christmastree #yoga #blackfriday

Day 6: #kickoversnleftovers . #shoulderstrength work 💪 . . I broke my personal record for #staglegs switches in pincha today. 🎉🏆 Almost lost it around number 17 (which was my previous record) but I made it to 21! It's crazy how much harder it gets after number 15 LOL 🤣😵 . . Then I did a one minute straight hold. #oneminutepincha (sped up times two of course! And still a snooze fest 😂) I used to work on these a lot more, but haven't in a while. A little harder finding my straight line than it used to be as my back gets less rigid.... but still, straight up is my first love and always feels like a comfortable place to hang out ❤ And we have gorgeous weather today which means my toes didn't go numb and it was a joy to be outside! Yay! . . Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Quiet around IG, as it should be! I paid my deposit for YTT today and ordered my required reading...so it's getting real! Gonna try to have some relaxing holiday chill out time before the intensity picks up in January. 🎅☕❤ . . . Hosts: @stretchylexi @throwin.shapes @bethanysmithyoga .

Yay! It's like a rest day for me!! . I'm only kidding! 😂😂😂 . But it was nice not to feel like I'm about to die for a change. . This is becoming a thing - 4 slides! . Slide 1 - #PinchaPress. Went with #StraddlePress and #PuppyPress. They still are so hard for me and need lota of work. Presses in real time, but hold sped up x4. Slide 2 - #PinchaTuck work. Tuck jumping to #Pincha and lowering to #BabyBakasana. First is in real time, the other is sped up x2. Wish I could press back to pincha but I have no idea HOW? 😱 . Slide 3 - #StagLegs switches in Pincha (sped up x2) Slide 4 - Drills: shoulder push ups, shoulder taps, get ups, #DolphinPose walks and push ups. (Sped up x2) . ___________________________________ #KickoversNLeftovers Nov 19 - 28 .

Not a single clean press but its ok let the calories burn. So my dad was asking me the other day if I feel weightless after practising yoga. (He says he feels weightless during the days where he was still practising 软骨功。 👀☻🙈 No man. No #laghima or #weightless or #floating sensation. My legs feel like lead. But then again I bet he didn't eat half the cakes I eat every week. #cakeislife

🔥BABY CROW PRESS 🔥 PART 2... Drills to get you triceps stronger and your core strong: 1. Baby crow to baby LOLASANA holds. Press the floor away and engage core while opening legs and detaching from triceps. Keep hips as high as possible. Avoid collapsing shoulders and keep you face as far away from your hands. 2. Frog jumps 3. Combining the two and adding some momentum to get those hips high. #babycrowpose #pinchamayurasana #pinchapress #crowpress #questforthepress #inversionjunkie #forearmstand #yoga101 #yogisofig #yogamom #yogapose #yogatutorial #fitness #girlswithmuscle #igyoga #yogaaddict #yogatips #yogaforbeginners #yogaeverydamnday #asana #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #yoga #yogi #yogapose #yogapractice #yogadaily #fitmom #instafit #armbalance #yogini

Lotus ain't happening for me in any inversion, you can see how tight are my hips - it's what makes me fall out... . I'm currently working on #StraddlePress and it is a real struggle, I have less stability in my #Pincha after pressing up v kicking up. . Hopefully with practice it will become easier. ________________________________ DAY 9⃣ of #ThankfulForInversions . . Nov 12-23 . .

Happy Monday. #pinchamonday means exploring pincha press press. My hips had to be convinced so I had some extra opportunities to think about shoulders and gaze (looking on the bright side of today’s press struggle - some of which can be seen in the video 🙂)
