Ever since I injured my lower back late 2011, I’ve been cautious about my movements. Now i make it a point to strengthen my core and improve my flexibility. An activity I’ve found to be able to help me do just that, Yoga!! The one thing I’m so appreciative for is my phone the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is my consistent companion whenever I video my Yoga flows. That’s the best way for me to see if I’m doing something right or wrong. Scroll on and you can see of my instavideos of my progress. Happeedee do 🙂
I’ve been doing this for the past few months and I’m real pleased with the progress. This is at my first yoga class at local singer Atilia’s studio “Yoga One That I want”, where I had yogi Adidas sister Soraya helping me get into my first headstand… I fell shortly after lol. Follow her on insta for some great yoga inspiration @norsoraya!
I mean I never thought I would be able to get back my split from years ago. It’s not perfect but it’s getting there 🙂
Here’s my very first try of doing the Yoga Headstand without the wall… well it’s near but i’m not touching it 🙂
And recently, this is my latest progress 🙂 Headstand by the pool and into a nearly full split.
I strongly encourage anybody to do yoga or at least try it. It’s another great way to boost your fitness regime and you touch on muscles that you may not always engage when you are just doing weights. Besides it’s all about body weight.
Just a note though that If you wanna start with Yoga, do go to a proper class with a good instructor, to avoid doing wrong poses and postures. Cause I can say that because you wanna get into a pose you may end up doing it the wrong way.
Love it! Keep working hard!
