Day 6: Shoulder Strengtheners
So we’ve worked on our flexibility, leg strength and power, and endurance. Now it’s time to work on our shoulder strength component.
Why: Once the momentum of your legs is out, it’s your shoulders and upper back that will pull the legs through the handstand and to the other side.
I have included a variety of options, depending on skill level , including dolphin pose pushups, wall L-shape drills, and some stand-alone leg switches in pincha. .
Don’t forget to check out the other amazing hosts for their variations! Hosts:

Please tag all hosts + sponsors and use #KickoversNLeftovers in each post so we can see all of your hard work!!!
As Thanksgiving comes to an end and we battle the inevitable food coma (Mmm!), we’d love to hear what you guys are thankful for.
We are thankful for mindfulness, malas and of course, everyone who has joined us on the Mala Prayer journey. You’re amazing and we are forever grateful 🙏🏼
Thankful for a lovely Thanksgiving spent with the people we love. Also, we’re thankful for each of YOU that follows us on HebrewDawn. 🦃🍽🍗🥕🌽🥔🥧🥦🥖🥧🥃🥂🍷🍁
In the midst of all of this we are mindful that this day can be a tough one if you have had to work, do not have a good relationship with your family, you are far from the people you love, or you have lost loved ones this year.
We hope that if you know of someone in a tough spot that you called and made room for them at your table. If you did not, it’s okay, but reach out to them this weekend and check on them. If you can/able, invite them over and spend time with them and be their people.
Japanese maple leaves on a warm Autumn day inspires me to cultivate lung Qi by moving with breathe 🍁🍂

Grateful for the chance to be home in SoCal this thanksgiving, celebrating the holidays with my parents (aka my biggest supporters and cheerleaders) and the little fur monster. Grateful for the warm weather that had me digging out this old romper because all I packed were leggings. Grateful for the chance to catch up with friends from high school and for their friendship that’s 10 years strong. Grateful for my sister, boyfriend, and friends who feel like family in DC who make the east coast also feel like home. Just eternally grateful for everyone in my life for all their support and encouragement. Love you all ❤️ happy thanksgiving!
Super excited to meet the girls from @banteaysreyspa this morning. And so happy to be part of this amazing project in #kampot .

We should be thankful everyday right? Or at least that’s what they say. And we should share memories w/ family outside of holidays. While some people cherish this holiday & others hate it, I see both. I see the insane nature of celebrating while killing millions of animals & I see the disrespect & injustice of a holiday masking the mass slaughter of Native Americans. I also see families together & having fun. But I understand why people boycott it & are angry. And certainly I am thankful every single day or I try to be, to acknowledge why I am thankful. It’s hard not to be when you are so fortunate & loved. Yet it also makes others sad realities even harsher. Knowing there are humans & non humans who suffer so immensely. I want to be a better person & to make wiser choices to lessen suffering. I want others to do the same. To look at their choices & to see where they can do better. To change their lifestyles to match their true self & ethics. I wanted to share some things I am working on & hope you share yours w/ me! I want to waste less food & eat what we have instead of constantly going to the grocery store. I want to be more mindful of packaging & plastic use. I want to know where my clothes come from & to support ethical companies. I want to be more compassionate & supportive of people who don’t align w/ my world or lifestyle & to be more open minded w/ ideas & thoughts that make me feel uncomfortable or challenge my way of thinking. I want to be a better partner to Keegan & add more love & affection to our lives. I want to accept people into my life & not push them away or avoid social interactions. I want to spread joy & happiness while also dropping massive truth bombs & some sass here & there. To name a few.! AND When I say I love you, I mean it. I really do. I have so much love in this body of mine that it never runs out. 💛🤗💜💁🏼😘❤️
& I wanted to make some funny statement about getting your head out of your ass because the picture, duh...but I’m not feeling witty at all cuz mama bear is HUNGRY! <—I wrote that before I ate. I’m now stuffed. 🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️

I know it's not a competition or anything, but I feel weird about teaching poses that I can't do. And though I know me being sore is only temporary, for a couple seconds I felt like a shitty yoga teacher, but then I remembered how great I am at teaching and then I was all good.
Oh, also Mosie says hi. 😸
🌿 I knew this piece had to go home with this loveeeeely sistah at @standrewsmarket last week, styling the epic patterns and angel wings to perfection! .
I still LOVE the fact that all our pieces are one-offs, as we are all unique beings, each one of us so amazing in our own personalities, and so too should our expression of clothing be - wearable art, a reflection of our vibrant and unique being! .
Today I am so happy as I head off for a weekend away for my sisters wedding ❤️🥂 So I've decided to sharw the joy a 3 DAY SALE !!!

The Great Perfection, Dzogchen Chenpo. The fourth and absolute non-state state of Our Original Nature.
Within Us all, this "Great Encompassment" resides; under thoughts, distractions, and reification of conceptual designation. It's is free from all labels, concepts, lenses, or maps.
The first verse of the Tao Te Ching states, "The Tao that can be named, is not the true Tao...." This is what Lao Tzu was talking about, Our Oneness and true Nature which is always available and ever present; yet the Stainless Mirror of Our Mind is sullied with concepts and dogma. Or as Nisargadatta Maharaj said, "anything that can be perceived or conceived is not I." Within My Tibetian Lineage I follow, the great Treasure Revealer Dudjom Lingpa, writes in one of the greatest books *EVER* written(IMO) "The Vajra Essence" about "Taking the Impure Mind as The Path". What does this mean and why is it so utterly and profoundly important?
Weather You're a Prince or a popper, weather You're a saint or a sinner, weather You're the highest high or lowest low, what do We all have in common? Mind. Mind in all it's splendor, and all it's horror. It's doesn't matter what color Your skin, Your beliefs, Your gender or sexuality, *WE ALL HAVE MIND AND AWARENESS*. This single fact that no matter what or who You are, makes this the single point where *We all meet*. Take this point as The Path, follow it back, and Know Thyself.
If this interests You, please read "The Vajra Essence" and get a qualified Lama from the Nyingma tradition to guide You sincerely in this Tibetian Yogic Tradition.
Rest well and goodnight Beautiful Souls
