Does your back hurt? Do you want to improve your posture? Do you want to strengthen your arms and legs? Do you want to hold your arm balances longer? The issue may be your core! Instructions below 👇👇👇👇 thanks for sharing @roxanne_yoga#inflexibleyogis ・・・
My all-time favourite core exercises!
1. Inhale to stretch opposite arm & leg. Keep the core engaged by drawing belly & ribs in toward spine. As you exhale, round your spine to touch knee to elbow, and squeeze heel to butt.
2. Inhale to open chest, exhale to touch elbow down. This works the obliques. Keep thighs engaged and hips up.
3. Hold plank for a min. Or do your best. Check that you're not sinking the hips down. Do so by lengthening tailbone to heels, drawing ribs in, keeping thighs active and chest forward. Challenge yourself by lifting one foot off just slightly and hold for 30s. (Need not lift too high.)
4. Same like no.3, keep core active by keeping back leg strong and chest forward. Be sure you do not sink the hips and bend the elbows especially when you twist. Keep shoulders stacked on top of elbows. Twist from the obliques, not the hips, so don't let he hips sink.
AND REPEAT EVERYTHING ON THE OTHER SIDE!
Do 2-3 sets of each exercise.
#yogawithmarti : WORKING ON SPLIT
It’s important here to try to square the hips. Even if you are touching the floor like in the bottom picture, is better to step back and maybe don't touch the floor anymore but keep your hips squared 🙏🏼
You can use blocks if needed to help you.
Trust me work on this in the right way and you will get there sooner than you think 😊 .

When is the last time you’ve done something for yourself? 🤔 I got a massage back in the summer, a manicure at the end of August and I bought 2 shirts in September, and of course a weekly coffee treat from my fav coffee shop. It’s hard finding time for yourself when you have two kids! (Even to shower! 😖) BUT sometimes we all need a little self love. Should that be for you some yoga wear?? I would love to give you guys @aloyoga’s early-access to their Black Friday sale. Take 25% off all full-priced items using code: SELFLOVE. Self love comes in all forms, I’m not judging how you portray it! 😘 #aloyoga
Tomorrow wraps up Day 10 of #alltheprettydancers with a flipped grip or full expression of Natarajasana or Dancer Pose. ✨ Lets clarify that everyone's "full" expression of this shape will look a little different so don't worry about whether or not you need a strap, belt, towel, or prop of some kind here. 🙌🏼The flipping of the grip is possible for everyone when we add a prop to the mix, so don't be intimidated. Remember your warm up, smile into your edges, invite a playful spirit and remember that no one is a master of anything here, we are all students learning our lessons as they come. 🙏🏼❤️ Thank you lovely souls for playing into dancer pose these last 10 days, our gallery #alltheprettydancers is just stunning and we are so thankful to have shared space with each other in this way. Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow for those who celebrate it and blessings on your day. ❤️🙏🏼 Love to co-hosts @clarissa_mae_@woodspine@sdharamr@shiniyogi And love to our challenge sponsor @aloyoga 🌸🙌🏼
