A handstand practice can go everywhere with you, don't need a mat, or even a full 20 or 30 minutes. Just your hands, 2 mins to warm up the wrists, and a few mins to pop up. Even if you just balance on a wall repeatedly you're moving forward to a better handstand ➡️🔥
If I don't spend a few moments to find the line, I always feel like my feet are hanging out in front of my head and so I way overcompensate and push them too far behind me. I also find this perspective really interesting...when I figure out how it will actually help me improve, I'll let you know 😂
I can’t believe it’s already day 7 of our challenge #embraceandempower today’s pose is any inversion of your choice 💜
I chose handstand and pincha as these two poses seriously empower me personally. It has taken me years of practice to feel even remotely comfortable in these postures, and still some days, they are not accessible at all. They show me that dedication and perseverance are two beautiful principles to practice in life and on the mat. These poses empower me because they are always going to feel different, but are extremely gratifying and humbling. 💓
Driving thru the Superstition Mountains this last January. I was constantly trying to enjoy the present surroundings while thinking about what was on the horizon. I’m a future-focused person and at times I have sacrificed the moments at hand for future concerns. I think it’s a battle we all know. I don’t foresee ever overcoming it completely and I don’t want to. In setting up practice and self-awareness, if I feel myself drift too far, I simply come back. Creativity and delight are found in the present. At times, amidst worry and concern, inspiration is found in the future. I think to win the “battle” is not to attempt to defeat our fallible nature but to embrace it and then take a second.. and laugh. For you are an ant.. and you are a giant..
| G A M E C H A N G E R | It’s time to play the part you were created to play. Why minimize who you are just so that others feel comfortable in your presence? Life is just as strategic as a game of chess.
I’m not telling you to think higher of yourself than others, I’m telling you to STOP playing small. Take risks, try new things, make unusual decisions (all in wisdom, of course) and live your dream out loud. Don’t be afraid to share who you are, the influence you carry, or the strength you possess. Could it be, that while you are playing small someone else is awaiting the real you to show up, in order to experience their breakthrough? You better join me in #RewritingTheText and live you LIFE! #growth#movement
FEET FEET FEET! 🏋🏽♂️ If your using your feet AT ALL during a movement, it’s a foot exercise. With that being said here are a couple of things I like to do to warm up my feet before a day squats.
1. Plantar flexion. Using the voodoo floss I wrap my foot and lower portion of my calf to create some pressure in tight spots. I like to use a bench (this can be done on the floor as well) to attempt to keep my foot as flat as possible through the stretch while lifting my knee up. This is one repetition. At the top of the rep I squeeze and hold that stretch for a 1-2 count and exhale+release the stretch on the way down. I do this for about 1-2 minutes each side or 10-15 reps. Whichever feels more comfortable.
2.Dorsiflexion. Using the voodoo floss again, wrapped in the same way as the previous video, I push my weight into my quad to try and squeeze as much range of motion as I can in dorsiflexion. Ultimately, what I’m trying to achieve in both videos is getting a little bit more range of motion out of my ankles and calves. Going into my squat workout, the quality of my squats will be improved. If I’m making a conscious effort to hold stability in my newly acquired range of motion I can Improve my squat form over time. The rep hold count and rep amount is the same for both plantar and dorsiflexion.
3.I set up a soft bar on top of two plates and simply try to walk across it. This forces me to use my feet correctly while applying some pressure to the bottom of them. It is a nice release for anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet, and a much needed wake up for cold muscles inside the foot. This is more of a playing set, so there is no set time I do this for. When I feel like my feet are nice and warmed up I proceed to my squats. 🤸🏼♀️🧘🏾♀️👟💃🏽
Yesterday someone commented on my post, “don’t you do yoga anymore?” and I occasionally (thankfully only occasionally) get people acting like experts commenting on my posts in this way. My own understanding of what Yoga is, is by no means complete. After 20 years of practice, and riding the waves of honeymoon phases, of attachment and aversion, only now do I truly feel like I’m beginning to go deeper into my inquiry.
An exciting part of this learning is the new wave of academic practitioners who are creating waves in the yogic world by giving us a fresh perspective on what this ancient tradition is - where it came from and how we got here.
We have all been conditioned so much to limit our understanding of Yoga to a singular definition, yet it is becoming clearer that the word itself (and what it means) has been changing and evolving since the beginning.
So I share with you this fantastic image depicting the forest yogis of India doing some of my favourite activities - hanging upside down, squatting, doing some pranayama or meditation, doing one arm headstand and YES - handstand! I guess the answer is then, that - yes I do still ‘do’ Yoga. 🤙🏼
Photo from the British Museum - which I have taken from Seth Powell’s brilliant Yogic Studies online course. Stay open-minded... stay curious, keep learning 🔱.

Prosecutors in the US can mitigate the punishment of McGregor for attacking the bus. Conor was threatened with a prison term of up to seven years, as well as deportation outside the US without the right to continue to enter the country. The prosecutor's office, however, agreed to qualify the actions of the fighter as a "minor offense", which does not provide for serious punishment. The new court hearing in the McGregor case is scheduled for July 26⚡️
