Today is Day Twenty One of the YOGAthletica #BackbendOktoberfest on my YouTube channel (youtube.com/jstdueit)! Today...probably my favorite backbend drill of all time (I have a longer instructional video on this, too, if you need more help. This one is like Disneyland! :D The HUGE PRIZE: a better, deeper, stronger backbend and yoga practice!!!! Sometimes intrinsic rewards are the most valuable of all. 💗 October 1 - 31, check in each day for a new one-minute backbend drill to get your upward bow deeper and stronger! And if you’ve never seen my channel, check out any of my comprehensive instructional videos and prepare to go deep! - - - - - - - - - - - #backbend #backbends #urdhvadhanurasana #urdhvadanurasana #upwardbow #upwardfacingbow #upwardbowpose #wheelpose #fullwheelpose #bridgepose #yogaoftheday #bestyoga #learnyoga #yogatips #backbendnoend #backbendlove #wheeleverywednesday #monnthursbackbend #losangelesyoga #layoga #mandukayoga #whstrong #mandukamat #nikewomen #nikewoman #veganstrong #shanameyerson #yogathletica #kickasana

I’ve just read my medical report from my surgery and even though everything is fine now I still need some time to digest all of it & will take a little timeout from social media. So excuse me if I don’t get back to you right away. /// On another note, I keep wondering when the urge of doing yoga everyday is coming back. Usually, I really needed to do very physical yoga poses to get through the rest of the day. But now it seems like this urge has completely vanished. I hope it’ll come back though (at least to some extent). I’m curious, have you experienced something similar before? #endometriosis #endometriosissurgery #pelvichealth
