Let's Get Flexy – Week 1

Lets Get Flexy

Here’s the first week of yoga poses for the Let’s Get Flexy October yoga challenge. As of Wednesday, I’ll have done yoga for 160 days straight! That seems like such an impossible number to me, but now that I’m here, there’s no way I’m stopping.

I wasn’t really ready for the back bend prep. I haven’t done back bends in years, and it was definitely a weird feeling to bend back but not land on the ground.

I’ve been searching for my strap to help with handstands and just found it, so instead of folding all the way forward, I decided to use the strap to help.

I played around with rotating the shoulders to grab the feet from above and could do it one at a time, but not in time to get a picture. I’m going to keep practicing it.
