In honor of the holiday, I thought of practicing all of the poses that embody a sense of freedom for me, the poses I love. But I am doing this yoga challenge, which includes a lot of poses I don’t love. (#julyyogachallenge #backtobackbends with @kinoyoga @beachyogagirl @aloyoga) So, I had to get to work. And I learned a ton, as usual, on my mat. The poses I don’t love, the ones that are very hard for me, do create an amazing sense of freedom afterwards. Like the one above, #revolved #sideanglepose or #parivrrtaparsvakonasana. I can’t do full pose with back heel down very well so I modify and lift my back heel.
And one legged crow, which is hard hard HARD for me….
This pose is especially difficult for this yogi from headstand. Maybe one day I will get it without the pass through crow. (VIDEO at http://www.YogaNag.com)
And then, for the grand finale, FREEDOM! Savasana. I love this one. Especially after hard work.
What are the poses that make you feel free afterwards? Are there other ways you celebrate this holiday besides BBQs and beer.
Do #yoga. Today. Everyday.
Peace and #practice,
