Getting all splitsy on this fine day! . I’ve noticed a lot of you have chosen #centersplits for your #hipopener for #ChooseYourResolution so I wanted to share how I’ve been working on mine. . First of all, get rid of your couch! Or sit in front of it if that won’t go over well with your family...😂. Get yourself a cozy space on the floor with a nice soft rug and work on your Instagram posts while seated in #wideleggedforwardfold. Since I do a lot of Instagraming, so I am stretching a lot!☺️😅 . The other awesome stretch that I added to my daily routine is #frogpose. About 3 years ago, maybe longer, I started doing it for 5 minutes every evening. It was NOT enjoyable at first, but it has become so and my hips actually crave it now. . Be careful coming out of any long hold...use your hands to help move your legs and move slowly. . That’s it! Happy splitsing to ya! 😘😘😘 . I’m stretching in @moonchildyogawear 💫💙🌙

@chandni.narang Hi beautiful! Thank you! No, you’re doing it right! You won’t get it all the way to the floor for a long time. But don’t worry, it will happen!! It took me 3 years...might take you a year and might take 10. And then once you get your frog pose to the floor, you’ll have your center split and then you’ll be working your oversplit!! It never ends, enjoy the process....it’s everything!!❤️

@chandni.narang Can you DM me a video of your frog? Or tag me in your stories so I can see if there’s any suggestions I may have?

what's the fit like on these moonchild leggings?

@leighyogipilot

2017.12.06. 21:34
@dianne.richard They are a bit tight on the waist. I prefer the fit on their printed leggings for my body style.

@leighyogipilot

2017.12.06. 21:35
@dianne.richard And I LOVE the printed ones...no elastic in the waist so no muffin top, and perfect compression on the rest, great material for working out too.

#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 4 is any #hipopener and of course I have to go with #splits! . I think I’ve been deeper in splits before, but my hip flexors are temperamental and if I’m not actively working on them, they tighten right back up. . Believe it or not, center split is easier for me than front splits. Folding forward in this pose feels good to me, but to sit straight up like I’m showing here, is a challenge. . So my goal with splits is to be able to sit straight up with ease. I know it looks close...but the key here is “with ease,” so I am committing to a 5 minute splits hold on each side...every evening. That’s 10 minuets a day...I can do that...right?! Care to join me? Let’s see what magic consistency will bring us! #5minutesplitshold . Your Lovely Hosts: @mama_layla_rose @leighyogipilot @beahappyamy @dianarae.yoga . Generous Sponsors: @NUXactive (my pants) @onzie @mamarooyoga (my mat) @yogapaws @omgoddess.clothing (my tank) . 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 #hanumanasana #igyoga #instayoga

#ChooseYourResolution Day 3 is any #forwardfold and I got tricky here and went with #standingsplits. . I’m loving seeing all your before pics!!! Make sure your friends know about this challenge too! It’s not too late to join and it’s sooooo helpful to have friends with similar yoga goals to work on and talk about things together. Let’s cheer each other on!!! That’s what this magical #igyogafam is all about!! . Forward folds actually come pretty easily for me so I wanted to choose a pose that I’d really like to improve...it’s just such a pretty one when it’s straight up! . My plan is to continue practicing the Ashtanga primary series at least once per week as it focuses a lot on forward folds. I’m also doing hot yoga several times a week which really gets me working hard to one day be able to kiss my toes in this pose. And of course, I’ve gotta work on my #splits too which (spoiler alert) I’ll talk more about tomorrow! . You are ALL invited to join! Don’t miss this challenge!!! You’ll kick yourself later when you see our progress pics and you didn’t do this with us!!! . Your Lovely Hosts: @mama_layla_rose @leighyogipilot @beahappyamy @dianarae.yoga .
