Today I thought I would show you some of the things I have been working on in my practise!
If you do not know me, or if you are new to the Urban Fruit Bat world, let me quickly fill you in. I love yoga. There, now you are caught up 🙂
I have been focusing on lots of back bends as of late. Here are a few:
This is called Dhanurasana or Bow Pose. Which leads me to try:
Padangustha Dhanurasana or Big Toe Bow Pose. Soon my feet will touch my face. Soon.
Then, I was inspired to try to grab my ankles in Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward facing bow posture) by the rock star that is Kino –
And so I tried what she said to do:
First, you lean back as you would if you were just going to do a normal drop back.
Then you try to reach for your ankles in the air.
Then you try to touch your finger tips to your heels
Then just take one hand at a time back to grab your ankle. Switch and try on both sides! Fun!
I also am still addicted to going upside down. I am still working my Pincha Mayurasana:
With my toes to head variation:
Then I fall, with all the grace I posess
Last but not least, Handy Standy:
I am still working the split leg version. Soon to be the real thing, I promise.
What are you working on Bats?
