Leigh Emily

I lost a good friend in a tragic motorcycle accident recently, and having missed his memorial, I’ve struggled with the loss, and with not believing that he’s really gone. . Well today, I finally got to say goodbye, in my own way. I’ll always have a piece of him in my heart and he will always be missed and loved by many. . I swam in the ocean and met up with the majestic manta ray who has lovingly been named after him. Elviki was sweet and gentle, just like her namesake, and smiled at me as we swam through the bait ball of fish and then she led me out deeper into the ocean to say hi to the dolphins. It was a perfect day and magical experience. . Thank you Elvis. Thank you for being such a profound part of my life. May you Rest in Peace and may all those who loved you find strength and peace in their hearts.💖 . . . @kulikclothing #yogapants #adventurepants #goprogirl #goprowater #freediving #luckywelivehi #dolphins #baitball #mantaray

I'm so sorry for your loss. I so know the feeling- I had a close friend who died in motorcycle accident and I couldn't go to memorial. It made all so much harder, took me months to find my own way to say goodbye, so I'm really happy that you could say goodbye in your own way. Sending love 💜

#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

When I do outdoor yoga in Alaska, the only audience I ever have is the odd mountain🐐goat or marmot...😂 . But here in Hawaii, it’s a little more challenging to find a quiet spot all to myself. I’ll put some of this mornings photo bombs in my stories for your amusement...😂 . But regardless of how many people walked by, I was really focused and managed to have an incredible 2 hour practice. I even flipped my grip on both sides in this pose!!! I think my #dailydancer practice with @allykborn is paying off! . Loving these💙pants by @totemmilife and super cute👙top by @kindapparelco 💖🙌 .

#ChooseYourResolution Day 7 (last day😥) Yogis Choice . Apparently most of my yoga goals revolve around #backbends and #pincha! My goal is to get my #hollowback deep enough to reach my toes to the floor and be able to comfortably get into #forearmwheel this way. I’m making progress, cuz I actually ditched one block already...working my way down to those hearts!❤️ . I turned my yoga space into a mermaids dream, cuz I just love my arts and crafts here on the gram, but you can swipe 👉to see my real practice.🤣💖 . It has been a joy to see all of your goals and already so many breakthroughs! I can’t wait to see what you all choose for the last day!! . We are ALL capable of so much more than we think! Keep rockin and keep practicing! So inspired by all of you!!! Thanks for taking your “before” pics with us, and keep an eye out for a progress report sometime! .

#ChooseYourResolution Day 5 is any #armbalance and duh, I chose #crowpose! . If you’ve followed along on my journey for a while, you’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, I’ve backed off of my arm balance practice...that is until I recently discovered that I have no pain using #parallettes! So now, it’s time for me to ramp up my practice again!! . You’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, it’s easier to hold longer and with straight arms it’s harder...so don’t get fixated on the time, just make sure you work hard. You choose what you’d like to work, #bakasana or #kakasana, or both. I’ll share a video soon of how to work towards the press up to handstand too. .
