In the community class at You Do Yoga, I was sweating off my mat working into these new poses!
With the help of the wall behind me , more for mental support that I wasn’t going to topple over, I followed these quick steps.
Step 1 I interlaced my hands behind my head.
Step 2 I walked my legs up close to my head
Step 3 Using my core I lifted my legs up bringing my knees into my chest
Step 4 I lfited my hips and shot my legs straight up into the AIR!
This was a great relief after I had attempted this pose MANY MANY times before and had no luck.. I believe that I was able to do this pose because this class was very strengthening and also very tough! While my core and legs were already so engaged I felt it was easy to lift using my abs and core more so than ever!
Here are a few more poses that I conqured this morning!
Picture credit goes to Yoga Journal for their great pose instructions!
Top ( Eight Angle Pose ) This one I can’t say that I masterd it, but
I did hold it for at least one second, so its a work in progress!
Right ( Crane ) I can say that I held it for more than one second!
