#vrschikasana

S C O R P I O N
Yesterday I was talking with @lottasebzdayoga about how this #scorpionpose is totally playing with us.
🦂
It's not the same on your forearms as it is on your hands. Totally different feels that you really have to practice both to be able to understand the details of each individual pose.
.
I don't think I've tried #vrschikasana on my hands since the summer of 2016 and after speaking with Lotta I wanted to give it a try after my class last night. I didn't think I would be able to do it but I was pleasantly surprised when this happened.
.
When I originally wanted to learn this pose in summer 2016 my handstand was terribly unstable and staying balanced was more of just me getting lucky as opposed to really understanding the technical aspects and control of handstanding.
Not that I am any sort of expert now, but around November of 2016 is where I accepted where I was at, stopped fighting with things that were still too advanced for me, and since then I've spent the past 14 months breaking the handstand down and learning about how to correctly approach it through drills and various exercises.
I still have a whole lot to learn but consistency with proper practice really does pay off and I've improved a ton in a relatively short time.
I was really surprised yesterday at how well I was able to hold this scorpion, but I still need to get stronger to better control the entrance, exit, and execution of the overall pose in general.
My scorpion in pincha is, I'd say, more polished and that's what I have to work towards on my hands too.
.
Now I feel I am at the same spot with handstanding where I was with pincha when my whole inversions journey really started : easier for me to hold figures than to hold the straight up pose.
And so I'll keep working on all of it.
Progress is slow but definitely possible!
On a Tuesday morning all I can say is #dontgiveup.

I tried an #AshtangaYoga session for the first time today and made it through 45 mins of the sesh... Totally enjoyed how my body felt. New aim for this year...attempt to incorporate some #Ashtanga at least once a week and little by little get a little further each time. Let's see how this works out by the end of the year God'z willing! 🙏

Change can only happen when there is will - the honest raw will to keep trying irregardless of the immediate results. And once that will is fired up from deep within the core of your being, boundaries that once seemed familiar slowly start to dissipate.

Как всегда неделя перед отъездом очень суетная. Но очень не хочется бросать челендж #AYearOfYoga2018 @cyogalab , вероятно некоторые асаны досниму уже на отдыхе. Сегодня было не больше 20 минут , поэтому оба видео 1 или 2 дубли
.

Если вы не практикуете регулярно с тренером, который подойдет и вовремя вам укажет на ошибки , напомнит о бандхах и дыхании , то лучше заниматься перед зеркалом. Вот сегодня глядя на свои растопыренные колени в скорпионе , я увидела очень грубую ошибку. Колени начала сводить и скорпион получился гораздо комфортнее и глубже, как бонус зависание в мексиканке. Если разобрать движение на фазы , то вхожу нормально , удерживаю без напряжения, но вот выход из скорпиона всегда страдает , я плюхаюсь в мост или замахом возвращаюсь назад. Буду отрабатывать этот элемент почаще.

Scorpion handstand. Picture with Leonard the cat is 2015/16 (??). Pic on the left is 2018.
Pleased to do a posture where I can actually see some difference!!
I have been including more shoulder openers in my practice and I think it’s helped with sinking the chest. So even though my toes look further away I think my back is bendy-er?
Again, my photographic skills are clearly coming up short compared to @ccbadowski 😆
Catching up with the #ayearofyoga2018 this is Day 21

Days 21 & 22 of #ayearofyoga2018 with @cyogalab : #bakasana and #vrschikasana in #handstand . I took both of these videos after I practiced and I was exhausted today! Holy Monday. Scorpion in handstand is something I'm just starting to dabble with , as I'm much happier in cheststands and forearmstands. As always, thanks @merlinpupstagram for the cameo.

🦂#scorpion 🦂 en parada de manos y en antebrazos para el día 21 de #ayearofyoga2018 🤸🏽‍♀️este año hay mucho más arco y apertura de pecho, y los pies en la parada de manos finalmente fuera de la pared, y en ambas segundos más de balance! Se va sintiendo mucho más aterrizada la postura, feliz de ver estos pequeños cambios 🙃

From one scorpion to another 🌱 using the wall to get the most out of the back bend which in turn helps me establish confident balance 🌿the more I arch the more I feel secure from the heel of my palm right through to my fingertips 🌳 I almost feel lighter 🙏🏽 Namaste 💫

Feeling improvement in that I'm much more steady and confident in handstands (with the wall 😃), but looking at these old pictures make me wish I were somewhere tropical!

Stilll very tired but all done with the 2nd day of week 3. Finally got the sequence of the Ashtanga modified primary series memorized 👌 only 6 full training days left before the final exam 😮 also booked my hotel for after the training, going to be staying in Koh Samui for 2 nights (enjoying a hopefully soft bed and a hot shower 😁) before flying to Bangkok and back home on the 3rd of February.

Day 21 of #AYearOfYoga2018 with @cyogalab 🦂 #VrschikasanaII or #Handstand #Scorpion 🦂
I did #Forearm #Vrschikasana as well which I did for challenge before 🦖
Both are not so in control and wall assist needed of course. I suddenly freaked out after I kicked up in forearm version 🙈
Not as #bendy as I used to feel but I did a better #hangtime on each version 😌 #workinprogress .

A little evening playtime accompanied by the sounds of the forest 🌿🌙 ... my mantra tonight was slow and steady... “I think I can I think I can I think I can”.
.
.
I might not ever get my toes to my head, in fact it’s not even something I’ve ever “tried” to do. I’ve spent years practicing yoga, strengthening and opening my body over time... and over time this shape has changed ... slowly. But there’s been no forcing, no attaching to a final shape. What I’m trying to do is create discipline in my body, so I can transfer it to my mind and into my life. The final shape means nothing to me (other than proof of dedication if I do ever get there). But I already know I’m dedicated. I don’t need the final shape to know that. The desire is simply to work hard at something, everyday, because I know it helps me accept myself and all of the things in my life. And working hard doesn’t always mean handstands. Sometimes it means no handstands. Sometimes it means “my wrists and shoulders just can’t do this today. I will focus on something else”. Through my yoga practice I have developed an ability to listen ‘in’ with more depth. And this makes me a better me. But it’s a work in progress. And it always will be. With all this being said, I’ll still say that compared to the solid plank of wood I used to have for a spine, practice definitely makes progress ✌🏼

#vrschikasana or #scorpion in #handstand for day 21 of #ayearofyoga2018 with @cyogalab
Very definitely a work in progress, but equally major progress here (swipe for last two years)
2016: I still had a mental block about even kicking up against the wall so had to climb myself up between two walls
2017: one month after overcoming that fear, first time backbending in handstand, but firmly glued to the wall.
2018: still a mental challenge as much as a physical one, but my handstand practice is getting slowly stronger. I kick up with more control, and twice in the year (yes that's all!) I've dared go up in the middle of the room. Working with straight legs close to wall I managed a 2 second hold. Then moving further from the wall I could deepen my backbend and walk my feet lower but no independent hold.
Have a wonderful Monday all, and I'll post my forearm scorpion progress this evening 😊
