~Favorite Pose of the Day~
I know….I know I havn’t been posting in FOREVER. Mostly because I’ve been focusing on job hunting, which has more or less been a complete fail since the beginning. So needless to say I havn’t exactly been feeling stellar… But I decided to get up out of bed today and practice! Because the only thing that lifts my spirit anymore is yoga.
During my practice I was feeling frustrated of course. But as I closed in on the end of my practice I moved into a happy baby pose for one final hip opener. OMG it was insane! Happy baby was never that intense before. Idk what it was. But afterward my hips felt amazing…I love how forgiving yoga can be. After you make the mistake of leaving it for a while, it always welcomes you back with open arms.
What makes Ashtanga special are the jump-throughs and jump-backs within the 60+ asanas of the primary series. This linking is what drives the flow of the practice. It also helped me to develop a strong core and shoulders for bouldering/rockclimbing. I clearly remember stumbling and working so hard the first few months to cross my legs, lift up and shoot them back. As the practice teaches, “you try and try and it will come.” #ashtanga #yoga #mysorestyle - @luduong- #webstagram
So i tried this routine today. The ashtanga primary series by YogaToday. I really liked it. I felt like through out the entire routine i was able to focus more on my core. The whole seated transition thing didn’t really work out for me though… my arms aren’t strong enough ^^;;
