Rainy Bali. Ubud was a gorgeous little place with lots of things to see and experience. We're now in busy Kuta which is the almost the opposite to Ubud. But you know, we're gonna make the most of it anyway. Countdown has started 😳
NEW YORK CITY!!! We just can’t stay away from you! .
@erinkellyart and @casa_colibri are headed to @pureyogaofficial WEST in early Oct for FOUR workshops! .
Want more info or to snag your limited spot? Check the schedule page on our website (link in bio). See you there!
This week (and maybe more) will be all about Wheel Pose or Urdhva Dhanurasana.
Wheel is a fully body pose, so make sure to warm up the shoulders, spine, hip flexors, quads, and wrists!
Tomorrow we will show the full entrance to Wheel, but the first few steps involve a Bridge Pose.
You might as well set up your Bridge for success.
Things to Remember:
. -Feet hip distance/parallel or maybe slightly pigeon toed since then tend to flare out upon lift off.
-Tickle the heels then back them away a few inches.
-TUCK the tailbone to engage the core and decrease the extension in the lumbar spine.
-Root down through all 4 corners of the feet, especially the inner edges.
-Use the press of the feet and robot arms to lift the hips and chest, keeping a tuck of the tail.
-Walk the shoulders under one at a time and clasp hands OR grab the outer edges of the mat and pull down and away.
-Keep the head nice and still to protect the neck and gently press the back of the skull to to the mat while still leaving space between the chin and collarbone.
-Knees have a tendency to splay out wide. Keep them tracking over ankles and almost imagine the knees are pulling away from the body in the same direction as the toes.
-Feet simultaneously pull in toward sit bones to engage the hamstrings while pressing away to lift the hips higher.
-Puff up through the chest and tone but don’t clench the glutes.
