@stoked_yogi this ones for you! First time trying yoga on a paddle board. This was taken last summer, the day we brought my dad home from the hospital after his surgery. I let him rest and walked to the street end to take a dip in the water with my friends. Talk about refreshing, for the body, mind & soul. When you open the heart everything else falls in line. #yogatothecore @beachyogagirl @kinoyoga @glidesup

Took a break from reading for a quick Krounchasana, Heron Pose. This was tough with my tight hamstrings but I’m always up for a challenge 😜 #yogatothecore @stoked_yogi @beachyogagirl @kinoyoga @glidesup

#yogatothecore day 6, JUMP THROUGHS! I struggle hard core with this, even with my long arms. The feet can float through but it’s both ends of it that I struggle with, the transition to where I am in this photo and once the feet are through it’s as if all my energy runs out. Practice practice practice, and one day maybe it’ll show up. In the meantime I have my little beast and Joe to cheer me on ❤️ @stoked_yogi @beachyogagirl @kinoyoga @glidesup

Natarajasana, lord of the dance pose, is what I chose for the theme of Expansion. Some days it is easier than others, rooting into the ground to rise up. Iyengar says, “This difficult balancing asana develops poise and graceful carriage. It tones and strengthens the leg muscles. The shoulder blades get full movement and the chest expands fully. All the vertebral joints benefit from the exercise in this pose.” This was taken in the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest National Park (one of my favorite places on earth) two years ago when we were driving across the country for a move to California. #freshstartyoga #aimtruecrew @laurasykora @gypsetgoddess @kathrynbudig @amyippoliti @tjhark @jason_crandell @theneshamaproject  (at Painted Desert)

Legs up the wall is the pose that grounds me the most. I practice it every single day even if I don’t have time for anything else. #freshstartyoga #aimtruecrew @laurasykora @gypsetgoddess @kathrynbudig @amyippoliti @tjhark @jason_crandell @theneshamaproject

@kb9546 please accept this as an apology for missing run club…Chaturanga Dandasana #stopdropandyoga. I tag @kristenalexo and @ommmmm, because the first thing I could think was that my head was not in line. Thanks for the photo bomb Shooter Jennings!
