Funky Transitions: Eagle Pose to Headstand

We're back with another installment of Funky Transitions, a mini-series to help inspire your creative flow in your practice. In today's post, we're going from Eagle Pose to Headstand.

Funky Transitions: Tripod Headstand to Baby Flying Pigeon

We're back with another installment of our Funky Transitions mini series. I am a big fan of making my yoga practice a lot like a dance. I don't care for using a mat, and I just like to go with the flow, and link poses together as I see fit and fun. This is a new favorite transition - going from tripod headstand to baby flying pigeon. 

Funky Transitions: Headstand to Forearm Stand

Your weekly yoga vid is put on hold this week as I'm still recovering from my shoulder injury and I keep aggravating the injury when I do my own personal practice, so I know rest is best for right now. In its place, though, I've got the first sequence in a fun mini series called Funky Transitions. In this series, I'll show a couple interesting transitions I incorporate into my own personal practice that you likely wouldn't see at your standard yoga class. Most of these are somewhat advanced, but if you're a beginner, don't be turned off. Instead, make a mental note of these so that when both of the poses are in your practice, you can give the transition a try. 

Why it's Important for Yogis to Strength Train

If you've been following along for a while, you know that I started lifting weight more seriously back in October. I've always loved weightlifting, but I quickly realized that in doing it more seriously, I was actually seeing results. I was building serious strength - and don't just take my word for it. 

6 Steps to Handstand

Ah, the elusive handstand. I'm not going to lie, it only really started to become accessible to me within the last few months. Actually, ever since I started lifting weight more seriously back in October of 2015. I get a lot of questions about handstands so I thought I'd share my six tips to nailing it down in your practice. 

The Trick to Creative Yoga Sequences

The other day on instagram, someone posted a comment saying, "I wish I could create sequences like this." The person was referring to my personal yoga practice, which is more like a flowy vinyasa dance. I don't use a mat (I hate feeling confined to a set space), and I don't plan out what I'll do before. I don't think anything, I don't write down what I did afterwards, and I don't focus on anything but moving and breathing. 

Total Body Yoga Warm-Up

When my plate is full, it's hard to remember to take time out and take care of myself. I've been pretty vocal about how important it is to keep yourself number one, so I feel a little embarrassed that I've put myself on the back burner for the last few weeks. How are you doing on the self-care front? Let me know down in the comments below. 

6 Steps to The Splits

Ah, the elusive splits. They’re one of those things on a lot of people’s bucket lists, and while we all know we don’t practice yoga to be able to master x, y, or z pose, let’s just be honest - sometimes it’s nice to nail a pose you’ve always wanted to do, right?!

How to Fall Out of Arm Balances

The other day someone from the Yoga Forum asked for a tutorial on how to fall out of forearm stand. I get that fear is a major reason why a lot of people avoid arm balances so I thought I'd put together a video to show how to properly fall and what to do to avoid falling in the first place.

Handstand Push Ups

If you've been following along on instagram, you will know that I recently learned how to do these handstand push-ups from my trainer.
