Day 8 #fallingALOver Friends, I just realized I’m standing next to a fire hydrant AND doing a variation of fire hydrant pose😱🙌 It’s going to be an awesome day🤣 Sara @lightfulyogini2.0 brings us this tricky twisting balancing pose that requires strength in your outer hip muscles (Glute medius) and your obliques. Sara makes this look easy😍 Swipe👉🏼 turn sound on 😂 to see just a handful of my many tries and the perfectionist in me just kept trying🙈 to get straight lines😅 Remember to check my co-hosts and tag us and your sponsors for n the caption. ⠀ 🐬 Hosts (in posting order) @cathymadeoyoga @kimterpstra_yoga @lightfulyogini2.0 @yogaandchaigirl @yogamand ⠀ 🐬 Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves @anklecraft 📷 @mariafornieles #aloyogachallenge #aloyoga #firehydrantpose #yogatwist #beagoddess at Wynwood Walls & Art District, Miami

Day 6 #fallingALOveragain is a grasshopper variation😭 brought to us by super human Kim @kimterpstra_yoga 😅I can do the arm balance but I couldn’t for the life of me get this pose 🤔 and I knew when she selected it that it would be a complete doozy for me. So I created this kinda similar pose 🤷🏻‍♀️for us in the event you also can’t get your foot up there😆Swipe 👉🏼to see how I got into this figure four shape. Check my co-hosts for more tips and inspiration.

Hi friends! We are halfway through #fallingALOveragain which means we’ve probably all had our egos bruised enough to let go at this point and surrender 😂 Let the real yoga begin🙌Today I chose this revolved pyramid variation. Another one that looks deceptively easy. I shot this pose last year with @guiselacoradophotography swipe 👉🏼 to see the subtle differences- like with my tan and wild hair, nah just kidding- I mean those things are true 😜but I’m more interested in my spine 🤓🧘🏻‍♀️ Remember with all twists, work towards not moving your hips, but rather rotating from your thoracic (mid) spine and keep your low spine lifting in and up. Think of squeezing your knees toward each other, sit bones move backward as you twist. The tricky part is getting your hand to the outside of the opposite leg. You’ll see in my blooper video the struggle was real especially working against the wind and being close to the water to avoid all the seaweed 🤣 Remember to tag your hosts and sponsors in the caption and have fun!

Day 5 #fallingaloveragain Leave it to Drea @yogamand to choose a pose that looks elegant, but is so tough to balance in😩😂 I really don’t know how me and @mariafornieles got this shot🤷🏻‍♀️ I think it’s decades of perfecting my yoga face 🙂 Swipe👉🏼 to see my fails, and a step-by-step system for doing this pose 😜🤣 In truth what did help me, for the millisecond I could hold it, was to look forward and slightly up, and to lift my sternum in the same direction, because the hand that goes behind you is going to pull you backward. Happy balancing, yogis🙌 Check my co-hosts for more inspo, tips and bloopers💜 Hosts (in posting order) @cathymadeoyoga (👈🏼 up next) @kimterpstra_yoga @lightfulyogini2.0 @yogaandchaigirl @yogamand (today’s host) ⠀ Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves @anklecraft #aloyogachallenge #toestand #balance #yogachallenge #aloyoga at Wynwood Walls & Art District, Miami

Day 4 #fallingALOveragain brought to us by Holly @yogaandchaigirl Anyone else struggle with this one 😩🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️ When I can’t do a pose, I don’t give up, instead I see it as a learning opportunity. I want to learn why I can’t do it. I take all my knowledge and ask: what anatomically is happening, what specifically with my unique body might be limiting me, what am I not thinking about? Today I opened registration for my 200 Hour YTT July 2020 in Bali. You’ll learn this approach too! How to think critically about Asana, your body and all the other aspects at play that limit or enhance our experience of a posture. You’ll also learn a lot more😊 check my website (link in bio) and remember to join my mailing list to stay up-to-date on events. Swipe👉🏼 to see my blooper, there’s F-bombs, 💃🏽salsa music, dirty sidewalks and more🤣 and if you’re curious why I think this pose was such a challenge for me in particular- aside from it being a hard pose- anatomically I have limited mobility in my thoracic spine making it super challenging to keep my face off the ground. I don’t let that discourage me. Knowledge is power, now I know the area I can work on to deepen this pose💃🏽you can learn this technique too. Remember to check out my super creative co-hosts and if you’re participating remember to tag your hosts and sponsors in the caption🙏 📷 @mariafornieles Hosts (in posting order) @cathymadeoyoga @kimterpstra_yoga @lightfulyogini2.0 @yogaandchaigirl (👈🏼today’s host) @yogamand (👈🏼 up next) ⠀ Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves @anklecraft #aloyogachallenge #fallingALOver #yogachallenge #forearmfriday #aloyoga at Wynwood Walls & Art District, Miami

Day 3 #fallingaloveragain is brought to us by Sara @lightfulyogini2.0 This is one of my favorite poses, but I had never tried it on my forearm. A few tips: 🧡Shorten your down dog so that your grounded foot can be flat on the ground. 🧡Look forward- it’s a backbend so looking forward will help you extend the spine. 🧡Use your lifted hand like a kickstand until you feel stable. 🧡Once you have the foot: Press your hand into your foot/ foot into hand to find more stretch through your hip flexors of the lifted leg. Swipe👉🏼 to see my bloopers and a how to video. It took me three attempts and I still landed on my 🍑 but I was able to hold this one for a while💃🏽 sound on to hear how photoshoots are so collaborative!

Day 2 #fallingALoveragain Kim gives us another hybrid pose. This one is tricky, I never quite know where my straight leg is going to point🤣Swipe 👉🏼 to see my bloopers. I fell out a few times on this one. Me and the photographer @mariafornieles were struggling with the natural elements. Also check out Maria’s editing skills when you see what the beach actually looked like that day👏 There’s a lot of pressure on the bottom knee so feel free to use a blanket or soft surface🙏 Can’t wait to see yours!

Welcome to #fallingALOverAgain 🙌 My name is Cathy and I’m so excited to kick off the challenge! We selected these poses knowing you might not be able to do some of them. Please don’t feel bad! There’s at least one pose that each of us were like, noooo 😩 because we can’t do them either. That’s the whole point! Give it the best you got. Try some funky new poses and learn to laugh at yourself and with others along the way! Day 1 pose is like a hybrid of compass and janu. The worst that will probably happen is you fall on your 🍑 or maybe you don’t even get it off the ground 🤣 I have never actually seen anyone get into this pose, so I’m excited to see how my co-hosts and you do it! Swipe👉🏼 to see my two attempts and props to 📷 @mariafornieles for cueing me a little deeper (sound on) even tho I was cursing her silently 🤣 Remember to tag your hosts and sponsors and have fun!

It’s rare with poses like this one that I’m holding it for very long. Sometimes yes, but most of the time it’s a give it all I got and click, or if I’m practicing a fleeting moment of nailed it! That’s why I love this upcoming challenge I’m co-hosting #fallingaloveragain We take poses that we all know are tough to balance in, so we can practice them but also join in the acknowledgment that what you often see in pics on the gram is not the reality. We will be showing videos so that you know how to get into the pose, but also so you can see our fails and repeated attempts and we want you to share the same. This is one of the most fun challenges I’ve ever hosted, join us🙌 I’ll be kicking off the challenge with tomorrow’s first pose tonight so you know what to post. Flyer and details in my previous post 👉🏼 Did you catch today’s story? Me and @ettlivstyle announced our early bird savings for our February 2020 Tulum retreat.
