Sundays (per usual) are for stretchy backbendy practices, too much coffee, comfy harem pants, and roast chicken. I’m feeling extra cheery because I finally finished my Christmas shopping and am starting to get super excited to go home and see everyone next week! ☃️✨🎄 Hope you’re all having a restful weekend ❤️💚🙏🏼 . . P.s. Swipe to see some of my warm up to prepare for this scorpion backbend (I also spent a bit of time opening my hip flexors and quads with some different lunge variations). . . . . . . . . #scorpion #seattleyoga #vrschikasana #illbehomeforchristmas #yogagoals #pinchamayurasana #forearmstand #backbend #backbendlove #yogavideo #sundayvibes

It's Day 2 of the #Inv#InvertedWork Challenge and its shoulder stretches. Stretching your shoulders are such an essential part of preparation for any inversion.  @yog@yogiescape is using her @Feetup to help stretch hers. Since I don't have one (Although I hope to win one 🙏😎🙏), I used a chair. 💖Hosts: @kianangyoga 🙌🏼 (handstand) @kathie_yogi 💪🏽(forearm stand) @yogiescape 🙆🏽♀️(headstand) 💝Sponsors: @feetup @liforme @insideoutsideoutsidein @breatheeasydesigns — Day 1: Wrist Stretch ✅ Day 2: Shoulder Stretch ✅ Day 3: Core Engagement Day 4: Shoulder Alignment Day 5: Hip Flexor Engagement Day 6: Pelvic Alignment Day 7: Hold Time - Inversion of Your Choice (beginner options will be discussed) — #InvertedWork #wriststretch #sirsasana #igyogachallenge #yog#yogaeveryday #pinayogini🍍#bendbutdontbreak #yogaeveryday #sistersofyoga #yogainstructor #stretch #yogagram #blessed #flexibility #godschild #yogaeverywhere #strongandbendy #myyogajourney #igyogacommunity #yogitee #yogastretch #yogaforstrength #yogaforflexibility #yogaforfitness #yogachallenge2018 #inversionjunkie #feetup #inversionarmy #inversionpractice #headstandpractice

3 ways to warm up your spine 〰️ ▫️ Try these movements help to increase spinal mobility. Try this out before squats or just to incorporate into your daily mobility 🦀 Crab Reaches: From a deep squat, place one hand behind you and lift your hips high. Keep your shoulder stacked over your wrists. Using your core, sweep your arms to the other side. 🔺 Triangle Pose Switches: Keeping a microbend in both knees, touch your fingertips to the ground or shin and hold as long as you’d like. Maintain a long spine and try not to dump forward. 🦂 Scorpion Twists: Extend one arm out to the side and lift your opposite leg up and over to tap the toe down. ➖ ▫️3 Rounds, 45 seconds each
