Howdy! Great day! Where I live it’s raining and this is my favorite weather ever! I love dancing in the rain and I hope one day I can do yoga under rain, that would be awesome, don’t you think?
Day 9. High lunge twisted

Keep your hips square as you reach your right arm toward the ceiling, keeping your back leg straight and your back long can make you to keep better the balance.

There were a few elderly men sitting on a bench near and were giving me and my sister(the photographer) weird looks!
This is a great pose for arm, shoulder, and oblique strengthening! It also has many modifications and variations for ALL LEVELS! Make sure to use your obliques to help reach your hips up higher in any of the variations.
beginner modification: place your top leg on the ground in front of you for balance support, an other option is to keep your top hand on your hip instead of reaching
intermediate variation: stack your feet, legs and shoulders. turn your gaze to look up
advanced variation: “play” reach your top leg up, and keep pressing out through the heel. you can also try coming into a side plank tree variation! (no photo)
This is called the spirited toddler flow. It is a 90 second class & not for the faint of heart.
Tara Stiles: Easy Strala Stretch
Stretching in the morning is the most amazing experience of the day. Just feeling your body opening up after sleep and becoming awake, one muscle at a time, is incredible. After doing this, I felt as if I had learned to breathe again, because every breath felt so fresh and energizing in my lungs! Take your time to stretch and get focused in the morning, but most importantly: Have an awesome day!
