Hip mobility is ๐Ÿ”‘ ...recently the focus of my practice has been on hip stabilization and flexibility, as I've realized how essential it is for many other postures that I'm constantly working on such as splits and inversions. I've never focused much attention on my hips and just accepted how tight they were, until I realized how much they were affecting my practice. I feel like the emphasis I've placed on hip mobility has already deepened my practice. The moral of the story is don't ignore your hips! .

That gaze shift has me obsessed. Making some #progress after what feels like practicing forever. Also currently head over heals for backbends, like I need more. .

There's something so special  about ancient ruins. The energy is magical...I look around and try to imagine what it would have been like 2000 years ago when it was the Zapotec capital โœจ

Sure, if you're strong and/or flexible it's easy to get into the challenging or flashy yoga postures. What's really hard is mindful movement; moving with grace. Graceful transitions are the toughest part of my practice. It means I have to stay in my body and not let my mind wander. It means using control, which takes more strength than a handstand. It's easy to throw your limbs around and land in a decent posture, but it's about the journey more so than the destination; yoga is a practice and not an end result. .

I can't believe it's already been two months since I moved to San Diego! Thinking about it makes me nostalgic, and as much as I try to live in the present, I'm grateful for all of the events that brought me here and led me to this point in my life (even the tough times, because I can truly see their purpose now) #grateful .

Working on my hollowback forearm stand...I'm glad I took a pic because i can see that my ribs are flaring out a little too much, and now I can be more conscious of that going forward...๐Ÿ’™body awareness & mindful movement ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒˆ

๐Ÿฆ‚Hazey morning practice. Unlocking new postures is so satisfying! I've been trying to get this one for a while, for me it's easier to do the scorpion version than the straight legs, so that's my next step...I've also been working on deeper back bends...starting to feel some progress. .

They say boxing is the sweet science, I say the art of handstands is also a sweet science, and it's been clicking a little better for me recently as I've stepped out of my comfort zone and come away from the wall. Im endlessly grateful for yoga and jiu jitsu for always making me step outside of my comfort zone and reminding me that change doesn't come from a comfortable place.
