New video on how to kick up into handstand just published on my YouTube channel. Find it at the top of my playlist all about handstands. Filmed at sunrise on Miami Beach by @courtney_morra (at The Beach At 1st Street)

Day 23 #IndependenceARMy is Vrschikasana, Scorpion Handstand. This is a master level arm balance because it combines backbending with handstanding. The key to finding the support through your lower back is to lift your spine out of your pelvis and create space between the vertebrae, then once you feel the space allow your body to move into the space. But don’t force or rush, this video is sped up
3x so be aware of how long it took me to get fully into the posture. 👉Check @beachyogagirl @laurasykora for more options. 👉My outfit is by our sponsor @glyderapparel. Use code “independencearmy” for 15% off. (at Fontainebleau Miami Beach)

Day 21 #independencearmy is Parsva Bakasana, Side Crane. Combining flexibility with strength always increases the challenge. While this posture is traditionally entered and exited from Tripod headstand starting off from even a half version of Pasasana will make it easier by deepening the internal rotation of the hip on the side that you are twisting towards. Be sure to warm up your shoulders, wrists, core and twists before attempting this. Check @beachyogagirl @laurasykora for more options.

No music, just the peaceful sound of the sea. The breath is the key to opening the heart, the mind and the body. The breath is the tide of your life force gently moving in and out of the inner space. Surrender into it and surrender into your deepest sense of self. Shorts and top by @onzie (at Miami Beach At 41St Street)

Day 21 #independencearmy is Jumping Through, the traditional Ashtanga Yoga vinyasa from downward dog through to seated. If you don’t know how to work on this please check my youtube channel for lots of tutorials, search under “Kino Yoga Jump Through”.  The key is to keep the shoulder girdle firm, protract the shoulders and layer the abs and core into a deep spinal flexion.
