Warm up for deep poses? sometimes only doing yoga is not enough for me. this was taken after running and no prior deeper stretching, and slide 2 and 3 are taken after yoga warmups and i couldn't go close to the ground. .
i remember once i did read that the true level of your flexibility is how deep you can fold with no warmup and that being able to go deeper into the poses after cardio does not count as your flexibility as it is just temporary. .
what is your opinion on this?

Knowing to safely get out of handstand is a key step in building confidence and pushing your edge in a free balance! to learn how to handstand, no matter your level, or to learn all the foundational postures of yoga, with their modifications and progressions, check out our ebooks (link in bio) 🙏🏻❤️ share this with someone who would benefit and save it for your personal practice! thanks for sharing @ericatenggarayoga #inflexibleyogis ・・・
how to fall out of handstands!.
there are mainly two ways to fall out of a handstand, either move the hands to “cartwheel” or even “handstand walk” out or don’t move the hands & end up in wheel, the very other alternative is to bend the elbows & tuck roll out of it which tbh is not easy to do without a gymnastics floor.
i say “cartwheel” because an actual cartwheel isn’t really like this & requires much more coordination & hip flexibility to do. however the concept of being light on the hands & ability to move the legs is what brings it to make it look like a cartwheel out from handstand.
it’s important to think more moving the hands before you fall than cartwheeling.
_
i know this also looks strenuous on the wrists and yes, it kinda is. but handstands in general are strenuous on the wrists hence warming them up before you train is so crucial. training a handstand fresh and cold is h*****n the body, even for someone who is an expert or performer.
warm👏🏻up👏🏻is👏🏻essential.
_
an olympic lifter always warms up with an empty barbell no matter how much they or the barbell weighs. so why would you suddenly put your own body weight on your wrists without warm up? especially if you’re just starting to handstand. can’t speak for those more experienced 😅..
_
aside from that, the video is fairly self explanatory.
arm out
leg out
if you find you cannot hold a solid plank, side plank & move with fluid (not staggering) strength within these two exercises, then i suggest working on the plank foundations first.
can’t emphasize enough how important plank & side plank is for handstands. seen my other tutorials? 😉
_
when the foundation is strong, it eliminates a lot of fear because you trust your body so much

#gettingbendyback 🔥 day 2: #lungewithbackbend!
lunges are among my favorite asanas but i find it a bit difficult to combine them with backbends because in the attempt to open the heart i risk to crush the lumbar area... so in this case this is my maximum! #safepractice 😊⠀

p.s. great idea to kneel on the stone. great idea marta.😝⠀

T o p t i p for back flexibilty and back strength🔥
—————————————————————
#repost @sar_white

okay so most amount of questions i get in my dms are all about backbends.
and how to get them deep and beautiful.
this does go against the very morals of yoga but us humans want to test our limits and see how far we can go. (me included)
problem is we all get so caught up on being as open as possible it seems ridiculous to most that strength actually helps flexibility and most important a healthy back is one that’s not only mobile (notice i use mobile not flexible 😘) but strong too.
so please, don’t just focus on the opening of your body but the integrated strength to create a balanced practice!
happy back bending!

Tomorrow is day 3 of #strengthentheasana with my nemesis pose- chaturanga 🙈 i have a light hollowcross therefore i find this asana super tricky. my go to for when i want to work on it is using a strap around my elbows (bottom pic). this makes it a lot easier! * strap should be placed above the elbows and be about the width of your shoulders
* keep the strap taut and the buckle in between your arms
* think forward rather than down
* let the strap support you and feel the depth of the pose.
* try it with knees up or down dependent on your strength.
