Eka pada koundinyasana II is a split-legged arm balance, also called "flying splits
one of the posture using arm balance and core strength ❤️ I belive I can fly
----------------------------- ท่านี้เป็นหนึ่งในหมวดของ arm balance และการใช้ความแข็งแรงของหน้าท้อง น้ำหนักต้องไม่ทิ้งจมดิ่งไปด้านหน้าจนเกินไป(ไม่อยู่ที่ข้อมือและหัวไหล่เกินไปไม่งั้นอกตกจมดิ่งนะค๊าา) การฝึกท่าเตรียมพร้อมทำไงดีเดี๋ยวเอามาฝากกันน๊าาาา
Do you feel that some asanas come quite naturally? Well, arm balances definitely don’t come easy to me 😬 In Nov, I learned how to enter #epk2 from low lunge from @varimoralesyoga@liveyogini@inneryogatraining 🙏. Today I tried from downdog. After so many attempts, a fleeting decent lift was marvellous! So I thought… c’mon jj, try another way, externally rotate the top leg (@yogathletica Youtube 🙏), andddd… not happening🤣 Tomorrow is another day!
Almost made it through my first day with no no coffee. I love it dearly but I'm suspecting it is causing my headaches. 😭 Let's see if that is indeed the case. Sounds almost like an experiment 😊 But I'm pretty sure no humans will be harmed so why not 💁♀️ .
Days 5 and 6 of #BeyondFlexibilityandFloat with beautiful ladies:
My attempts at lowering from headstand into flying pigeon and from handstand to plank variation. I don't think I have ever tried either of these lowers. My 'lower' into visvamitra was more of a drop or a plop but I kinda liked working on it. I chose visvamitra and split press (I know it isn't really a press yet. I'm just learning all these fancy stuff) bc usually I work on my splits on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So it seemed fitting. I still have day 4 to catch up with the rest of the participants but I was already out of steam and time for my practice today.
The most serious risk of doing #EPK2 at this height was a pretty dangerous one.
Losing my glasses.
Thankfully it didn't happen. Winning. 🤟
The video of getting up on the beam into the pose and out of it is there if you swipe. Getting more control over my body every day. 2019 is the year of #strength.
Hold on when you need to in the present moment but learn to let go when is it right. Buddha teaches holding on to stress or anger is like holding onto a burning lump of coal, the only person who is hurt is the person who doesn’t let go 🙏❤️❤️❤️ #letgo#yogawithdrlyanh

Wanted ice cream so bad yesterday while teaching yoga. Glad that I don't believe in new year's resolutions 🍦🍦
If you told me a year ago I’d be working full time hours teaching group fitness classes and personal training, I’d probably have laughed in your face.
*Disclaimer - this is a long post, BUT I promise it’s a feel good one!* For those that know me well, know I never did well sitting quietly behind a desk. I spend two years out of college doing just that and saying that was a rough time would be an understatement. Now fast forward to about a year ago where I was well into making a career switch from hospitality to fitness.
I had so much free time, usually only teaching once a day and feeling like a failure because I left a cushy job for something that I wasn’t actually sure was going to workout <— *yikes, am I right?!* It’s been almost a year and a half since making the switch and I am SO happy to say I’ve grown my work over 2000%! WHAT IS THAT?! LITERALLY HOLY SMOKES! This is SO not meant to be one of those *show me praise* posts, BUT I hope it turns into a positive post for the other “Christinas” in this world!
Everyone is told “if you work hard, then you will be rewarded”, I have never really understood what that meant until now. Being an entrepreneur (holy shit that feels weird to say and I still don’t fully believe it!) has given me a whole new understanding to that phrase. Too many ups and downs to count: many happy dances, MANY tears, classes/clients that didn’t workout, those special ones that did, lots of self doubt and LOTS of pep talks!
Now there are always new goals and new mountains we want to climb (Lord knows I have a handful!) but I just wanted to share that there is such power in following your gut and doing what makes you happy! No matter how many people look at you weird, no matter how many people think you’re not doing anything, no matter if you’re on the same timeline as someone else your age, and no matter how many condescending comments you may get...decide what makes your heart happy and GO GET IT! ✨

____________ Eka Pada Koundinyasana 2 ____________
🔍Struggling to keep your shoulder up and to lift your back leg off the mat?
Practice with the funky arms with your back toes on the mat! One arm like #Pincha, another like #Chaturanga. And practice keeping your shoulder higher than elbows, and one arm & one forearm perpendicular to the floor 👌
SHIFT YOUR CHEST FORWARD enough so that you don't drop your chest down towards the mat. It's exactly the same as chaturanga 🙋
Practice extending your back heel towards the back wall in stead of lifting up. What you want here is the extension ↔️
Once you build up the solid foundation, flying will come naturally.
#LizardPose is a great preparation pose to open the top of the tigh for back leg 🦎
Let me know how it went!! 😊

First, It’s important for me to tell you, if you’re a beginner when it comes to yoga I do recommend to go to yoga classes. Instagram and YouTube can give you some really great tips and much knowledge , but for some things it’s job not good enough.
I learned a lot through Instagram, but it was after two years of practice in a yoga studio.
Now Fly Split 😝
DISCLAIMER: Photos can be deceiving!! I’ve been posting a bunch of these mountain photos and many of you have commented on how brave I am and how close I am to the ledge. So we’re starting this photo off with the truth. It only LOOKS like I’m close to the ledge. I was at least 5-6 ft away from the ledge and very safe while taking these photos!! ⛰ .
Alright now that that’s out of the way 😂 It is Day 7️⃣ of #midsummerarmbalance and today we are bringing you #epk2 or #flyingsplits Speaking of illusions...one thing I love about this pose is that it can give the illusion that your splits are a lot more open than they are 😂
- Starting from down dog, inhale and raise your right leg up. On the exhale, begin to draw your leg into the chest, at the same time creating chatarunga arms and then allowing your leg to rest on the shelf you’ve created with your right arm. Shift the weight forward and allow your back leg to fly! - You can also get into this from lizard so check out @yogaforyall for that tip! - Great prep poses for this are chatarunga with the front leg resting on the front arm but not taking flight with the back leg, lizard pose, or even splits! 🤸♂️
