If you recall, I was freaking out a little bit because I was chosen to help host the MAKE YOUR OWN LUCK (or #MYOLYogis) Challenge on Instagram Sponsored by Hugger Mugger and MonkeyG yoga: two local and awesome Utah Yoga companies.
I've been cataloging my pics daily on Instagram as part of the challenge. There are seven "hosts" and we each take a day of the week explaining a pose and then posting a picture. We are also responsible for posting pictures of the other hosts challenge poses. So here's a little taste of what the challenge has included for me:
|Headstand... if this were a video you'd see Zoe crawling around me,...|
|Upward Facing Dog Poolside. I have this ritual after I swim 800yards to a mile to do a little yoga poolside because my shoulders get SOOOOO tight and I don't want to lose range of motion in them. This is what yoga and triathlons do to a person -- little crazy.|
|Chin Stand, with a Little Help from some old Magazines:|
I actually held this pose for the first time in my life without props
(aka - minus the mags) last night! #practiceandalliscoming
|Someday I will post a picture of me in this pose and it will be my hands grabbing my foot.|
It may be a year, or more... but it will happen. It just takes time, and practice, and patience.
