Leigh Emily

#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! . Big Love from your Hosts: @mama_layla_rose @leighyogipilot @beahappyamy @dianarae.yoga . To win prizes, please be sure you’re following all our awesome sponsors: @nuxactive @onzie @mamarooyoga @yogapaws @omgoddess.clothing . #yogagoals #reflection #yogaprops #wearyourmat #yogablocks #pinchamayurasana #inversion

#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. . Your Lovely Hosts: @mama_layla_rose @leighyogipilot @beahappyamy @dianarae.yoga . Generous Sponsors: @NUXactive @onzie (my outfit) @mamarooyoga @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 #instayoga #bakasana #poolyoga #shennanigans

So many of you chose #wheelpose for your #ChooseYourResolution #backbend pose to work on, so I wanted to share some of my favorite warm ups with you! . 1.) #leighsdoorwayshoulderstretch is fantastic and honestly it’s a game changer if you can remember to do it daily. . 2.) #PuppyPose is my daily in the shower stretch and is another game changer if practiced regularly. . 3.) If you don’t have a #yogawheel, get one. It’s the single best #yogaprop I’ve ever invested in and has done more for my backbend practice and spinal health than I can express to you. Code Leighemily will get you 10 bucks off a @yogaprowheel or you can sign up to be an ambassador yourself. But all the wheels are good...doesn’t matter what brand. . 4.) #hipflexorstretch is soooooo important for your wheel pose practice. Don’t skip it!!! Spend 10 breaths on each side...at your edge. You are looking for stretch in quad and hip flexor....NOT pain in your knee. Back off if you feel pain. Use towels for comfort. . 5.) Be good to your wrists. Mine hurt, so I found if I put blocks at an angle between the floor and wall, then my wrists don’t have to bend as much. You can do this without a baseboard to prop them on, you just have to be careful...use a sticky mat. Work towards kissing the wall...pretend it’s your long lost Lover you haven’t seen in forever...😘🤣 . Do this whole routine as often as you can...and enjoy the rush as your back/chest starts opening, little by little, but never push through real pain. You can tell the difference between nudging at your edge and real pain that tells you injury is imminent. Be smart and listen to your body. . If I can do this, YOU can do this! I’ve had surgery on my right shoulder for a torn labrum, I’ve fractured two different vertebrae, and I have scoliosis. No excuses! You’ve got this! . If you don’t yet have blocks for your home practice, DM me and I’ll find you a discount for @yogahustle, the best blocks out there. . Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions or other fabulous wheel pose preps that you want to share! ❤️❤️❤️ . #leighstutorials #leighswheelposetutorial #wheelposeprep #wheelposetutorial #yogatutorials @yoga.tutorials #re3 @re3life

#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 .

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 💖🙌 .
