Had a meh practice today. On the bright side, my hip is feeling better, so I think the pain was due to repeatedly landing on the same side after cartwheeling out of handstands. My focus is now going to be on form rather than volume, so that hopefully it doesn’t act up again. I need to remember that it’s ok to go slow and I don’t need to care about what other people do. My practice is only for me, and I think I was losing sight of that recently. #handstand365

I hardcore did not want to do yoga today.  But I didn’t want to not do anything for my body today either, so I dragged my butt off the couch and did this flow.  I have had a few of sarahbethyoga's videos in my youtube playlists for a while but this is the first time I've actually done one and I realized that I was a fool for waiting so long!  This was well sequenced, well cued, and just a really good flow.  I highly suggest giving it a try, and don't worry if you aren't super flexible - she gives modifications and none of the poses require pretzel-like flexibility.  :-)

I was tagged last night by @bikram_fit to show a pose that’s a work in progress. I wasn’t quite sure what to pick but then when I was doing an #ultimateyogi video this morning I realized that I needed to do standing splits. Like everyone, I’m a bit vain and I don’t like to show poses where I am riding the strugglebus, but here ya go. :-P I’m going to tag @bexmaddy, @itisallmydoing, and @chocomilf

I saw an interesting post by @beachyogagirl today about needing a process and how just doing handstands for the sake of handstands (or I would argue any repetitive action) may not necessarily be a positive thing. This could not have come at a more appropriate time for me as I have been feeling the need for more process. Thus, if you see me doing more handstands against the wall for a while, just know that it’s part of the process. :-) #handstand365
