Day 17 #BalanceBasics is Viparita Virabhadrasana, Reverse Warrior. This is one of my favorite postures to release the ilio-psoas and hip flexors making the space for deeper backbends and splits. To test your balance come up onto the ball of the foot on the side of the bent knee. Filmed by me on Amager Strand Beach in sunny Copenhagen 😊 Check @beachyogagirl @laurasykora for more options.

@sarahkatebarr say whaaaaaat?
Nice ass
What impossible thing have you tried today? That is something I ask myself every time I practice. Share it with me and tag someone who you think needs a little push to try something impossible 😊 Tic tocs are something that while I can do them bring up a whole host of resistance. I have to talk myself in doing them nearly every time and there is a huge temptation to just skip them. Not only are they hard and take a lot of physical and mental energy and endurance, but they also come at the tail end of the Ashtanga practice when I am most tired and my mental fortitude is at its lowest. But... that’s why I love them! The only way that I can do is by tricking my mind. If I think about doing the full three tic tocs and the four handstands that follow in the traditional practice I get overwhelmed. So what I tell myself is that I’ll just do one and see how it goes. Naturally if I do one then my body and mind are drawn into the whole sequence. Try that method on days when you feel like you don’t want to practice. Just tell yourself that you’ll do one Sun Salutation and see how it goes with full permission to stop. You’ll find that the body will be drawn to continue the practice. The lesson learned is that you don’t need to do it all at once and you don’t need to plan ahead--just be present where you are and you will be guided through your journey through what seems impossible and insurmountable. Trust, follow, surrender into your strength 😊 Leggings by @liquidoactive

@tanazf 👍👍
Day 16 #BalanceBasics is side plank with the option to take it into the arm balance most often known as Vashishtasana. The key to using the side plank for strength is maintaining the activation of the pelvic floor, firming the abs, drawing the lower ribs in and stabilizing the shoulder girdle. Avoid arching the back too much and instead focus on the centerline. Who can tell me what area of beautiful Copenhagen this video was filmed in? It's one of my favorite areas. Here's a hint: there are swans hidden somewhere in the background. Check @beachyogagirl @laurasykora for more options. My outfit is by @athleta

Day 15 #BalanceBasics is Tadasana. Sometimes Tadasana is used to refer to Samasthih (the neutral point with the feet parallel that every asana begins and ends with). In the Ashtanga method Tadasana refers to a fourth series posture that uses the external rotation of the hips to challenge balance and orientation towards the center line. I was never a dancer so when this posture came up in the Ashtanga Yoga series I had a hard time with it. In order to find your balance the first key step is not to force the external rotation too much--just feel where you hips will take you and then balance there. Squeeze the inner thighs towards each other and connect the legs into the pelvic floor. Check with @beachyogagirl @laurasykora for more options. Who can guess where in Copenhagen I filmed this video? 😊 All black outfit by @athleta

Copenhagen, Christianshavn 😎
@prozacwherethehoesat we can do this pose! 👍😂
Look for the subtle experience of the inner body and tune in to the depth level of consciousness. Don't force it, just wait for it. If you rush the inner journey you may actually miss the destination of the being in the present moment. Stay calm, stay strong and practice every day 😊 Would you ever guess that this pic was taken in Vienna? It looks like a Greek temple!

Day 14 #BalanceBasics is Parivrtta Trikonasana, Revolved Triangle. This foundation of this posture comes from equalizing the hips. Avoiding hiking one hip or leaning over to one side. Instead break the posture down into a forward bend to start, then only after you feel the stability in the hips begin to length the spine out of that foundation. Add in the spinal twist only to the extent that you do not compromise the structural integrity of the foundation. To twist deeper draw the lower ribs in towards the center and spiral around the central axis.  Check with @beachyogagirl @laurasykora for more options. Video filmed in Copenhagen by me 😊 Loving the all black outfit by @athleta

@jordanpillai @killyourtelevision this is the lovely kino! ❤️
Day 13 #BalanceBasics is Half Moon, Ardha Chandrasana. While I don't normally practice this asana, it helped me find balance to keep the core engaged to ground and stabilize the pelvis and reach out through the side body along the line of the extended leg. I connected it into Kapinjalasana, another posture that I don’t regularly practice because it’s not in any Ashtanga series that I’ve learned. I don’t really feel comfortable giving too much technique about either of these postures because they are not part of my daily practice and I don’t have enough experience with either to feel that I can really teach them, but I hope you’re inspired to find your balance in Ardha Chandrasana for the challenge 😊 Check with @beachyogagirl @laurasykora for more options.

@bri_bernal I would love to see you do this one
For someone like me who has way too much energy a day at the spa for mandatory personal relaxation is the best present ever! Since I am traveling to London today @timfeldmannyoga whisked me away for massage, steam bath, salt scrub, tapas and a wonderfully relaxing afternoon at the spa to celebrate my birthday yesterday 😊

Day 12 #BalanceBasics is Parsvottanasana. Align the heel of the forward foot with the arch of the back foot to facilitate a slight inward rotation of the hip joint of the forward leg. As you fold forward suck the low belly in and pull back behind the public bone. If you can't do prayer behind your back hold your elbows and soften the shoulders into internal rotation. This Mallorca location was beautiful but it was up really high so I was a little tentative coming from Florida where it's super flat.

@_sarahnade so much inspiration from this girl
Day 11 #BalanceBasics is Mukta Hasta Sirsasana, Tripod Headstand. If you're new just do the basic tripod prep by building a stable foundation with the shoulders and stacking the knees on the shelves of the upper arms. Only if you feel stable then lift all the way to balance. Eventually come up with straight legs and learn to jump back directly from the posture. Remember to keep your elbows in alignment with the shoulders and wrists. Check @beachyogagirl @laurasykora for more options.

Just out of getting my roots touched up and as I was taking this selfie a photographer came up and asked to take some pics with me, so I said yes and moments later I was in Hanumanasana holding my chai on the bench outside of Lagkagehuset. @timfeldmannyoga walked up and just started laughing, couldn't believe in two hours alone I manifested an impromptu photoshoot 😊 Do you think I'm crazy for letting a total stranger take some pics on the street with me?
