Day 21 of #masteringhandstands and day 266/365 of #handstand365_2017 is Tucked Hollowback Handstand. I'm not sure what it is, but as soon as I attempt to tuck my legs in this handstand variation, my shoulders really feel the stretch intensify. This handstand variation definitely challenged me today. I tried getting my tuck tighter, but then I found myself starting to fall forward. I was trying to find a nice balance between tucking the legs and getting a good shoulder and spine stretch. I've got some work to do, but I had fun trying a new shape today.

Midnight gym...😆♥️🌟I am still at my friend's house...my hubby asked me on the phone today like... "When are you going to come back home, Yuko?" And I said " I will let you know!" 😂😂😂
Decided not to throw this chair bc this chair helps my back open up when I first started addicted to backbend. So many props that you can use for yoga not only a strap or yoga blocks just look around 😝 #chinstand #yogini #yogachallenge #yoga #yogafun #ashtanga #practiceandalliscoming #yogagirl #yogi #yogafit #yogapose  #asana  #yogaflow #yogachallenge #motivation  #igyoga  #instayoga #yogajourney  #yogadaily  #yogapractice  #yogainspiration #fitness #polebeginner #keeppracticing
Day 23: Eka Pada Sirsasana, One Foot Behind the Head Variation. This one is tough. After some pigeon poses and other hip openers I attempted to put my leg behind my head and balance on my butt and that was a no go...LOL. Toppled right over. So instead I opted for the reclined version Carmen demoed in her video. This was much more accessible to me and allowed me to focus on the flexibility and getting my spine straight. I have a long way to go with these, but I do enjoy the stretch.

When I originally started my ig account I had just finished my first tt and wanted to document the growth of my asana practice. This platform has been a great source for inspiration and opportunity. But at the same time it's all to easy for me to get caught up in the current of constant posting - thinking I always need to be better, wiser, stronger to remain relevant. It's been very refreshing not worrying about what I was going to post this last week. My practice was focused around my actual practice, not worrying about setting up a camera or getting likes. It's so easy to get caught up in this imaginary competition with myself, these last few days have been a reminder about what's truly important in my practice. And on that note, I'm going to end it here as I'm literally driving myself crazy figuring out what to write 😜😜 * * * * * #yoga #nyc #bk #sf #eastbay #chillwaves #manbun #flexibility #instafit #nycyoga #yogi #practiceandalliscoming #sfyoga #yttp #igyoga #ashtanga #hotyoga #balancekingdom #forwardfold #ekapadasirsasana #legbehindhead
I am ready for change! Change looks like more peace. More sleep. More silence. More pleasure. More space. More trust. More laughter. More la-dee-da. More mystery. More mischief. More calm. More freedom. More love. More lingering. More traveling. More journaling. More time for me with ME. What's your heart calling for? Tune in tomorrow 10am-12pm Mysore practice at @theyogashaladc ♥️

"Are you always that happy?" No, but I mostly pretend that I am always wearing flowers on my head, it is such a happy thought #mindfullness #ashtanga #throwback 2016 #favorite #photo @criimewave #family #portrait #flowers #roots #swedish #tradition #midsommar
Here's an old photo from home since I've hardly practiced since last Sunday due to my rest day, moon day, then getting sick 😷 . Today I did do some sun salutations and the last three closing postures, so slowly coming back to it. I also taught a 90 min led half primary class for the @trinifoundation for the first time and it went well! Also gonna start doing it once a month 🤗. Taught another hour class right after, and now I'm sipping on tea and reading the yoga sutras 🙏🏻. #treepose
This september #headstand #yogapose is #sirsasanab. It's from the #ashtangayoga #primaryseries. I like to see my toes as they meet my gaze on the way down. It demands a great deal of #corestrength and #corestability.
