Lucy and her grasshopper. She's been playing with it for 10 minutes. It starts to move away, but then she picks it up in her mouth and brings it close again. (Update as I type: She loved a little too much. RIP grasshopper.) #goldenretriever#dogstagram#grasshopper
🌱Grasshopper 🌱 Tips on how to approach one of my absolute favourites. More arm balancing fun tips and tricks coming up THIS Saturday at my workshop. 2 spaces just came up, holla if you want to 'hop' on board. 11- 1:30pm at Aroma House @yogareadinguk . Email email@example.com. I'm so excited I can barely keep my feet on the ground... 😂
Please note the following is not suitable for beginners and if you're new to arm balancing probably best not to try this one as a first. If you're more experienced and having a go, make sure you are warmed up! Hips, core, wrists, shoulders, arms, legs. Twists like revolved lunge or chair are a good way to prep.
1️⃣Try it on your back first, find the connection of the sole of the foot to the tricep
2️⃣Squat in figure four as the way to approach
3️⃣Twist on your squat balance and connect sole of foot to tricep.
With chaturanga arms lean forward and lift the bottom leg.
4️⃣Stretch it in same direction as top foot is pointing (to the side). You have lift off!
If a grasshopper jumps into your awareness, it is time to commit to a decision and act, whether you think you have enough information or not. Take the leap of faith (you can apologize to faith later for "borrowing" her leap). Grasshopper is known for jumping and moving around. It is especially not known for patience when mastering kung-fu.
