Okej lets get flexy! Here are some tips on how to open your hips and back to be able to reach that foot with your hands.

Start by stretching your hips and warming up your back. Good pose for this is wheel. Warmup video coming up! Never force a backbend, just relax your neck move in to a pose when it does’nt hurt.

1. A good starting pose is Mermaid. (The last picture). Just lift your leg and place your foot against your arm. Connect your arms behind your head and feel the stretch.

2. Another tip is using a strap. Tie it around your foot and hold it with a distance to your hands that feel comfortable.

3. Next tip is using a wall to assist your leg. This way you can just relax your neck and try to reach your foot. It’s also a great hipstretch to get ready for the next step.

4. When you feel ready, try grabbing your foot with the opposite hand and move it towards your shoulder. Now grab both hands around your foot and turn your arms, elbows facing up. Relax your neck and feel your foot against your head. Video coming up!

Good luck yogis!

Bakasana 2 headstand 2 bakasana!

Video as I promised! (For instructions see previous post) A little bit shakey, my arm still hurts after the fracture so still working on building up that strength and stability again. Armbalance poses are great and really speeds up my recovery, about 5 weeks since the accident now..

You’ll here from me again as soon as I find internet access here in Costa Rica!

Big love
