Of Crows and Inversions

Hello there!! the crazy yoga girl is back πŸ˜€ I have been practicing a lot of inversions last few weeks and praying hard for the doorframe to not to break. 

The first thing to remember while doing yoga is not to push too hard. It’s not a competition. While doing cardio or planks, I don’t mind pushing few seconds more but I feel Yoga requires a completely different mindset. As soon as the body says enough, just stop, else you may end up with sore wrists and elbow pains. I do tend to go overboard with crow pose, trying to perfect it, which is ridiculous because it’s never about perfection. It’s about being comfortable. 

Anyway, I am happy to see my arm balances getting a tad bit better πŸ™‚ This crow is getting stronger and higher.

What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle – Rumi

All these days I have been using my boring grey yoga pants while practicing, but last week I received this colourful pair, purchased at an amazing price from Aliexpress. Soft, good fit, comfortable, with designs and everything.

Midst of a transition – Wheel Pose or Urdhva Dhanurasana

As the winter is setting in, I miss going out early in the morning. Need to find courage to kick off the blanket in 8 degrees. Brrrrr !!!

  1. My God .. I am so in awe of you ! Awesome flexibility. I think I am just going to go have a bar of chocolate to get over my state of unhealthi-ness πŸ˜›

  2. That flexibility is giving me an insecurity complex. That crow pose! Goddamn!! I want to do yoga too without breaking myself. -_-
    Sorry for being away.

  3. So beautiful! And those yoga pants are cool. Still not better than the hard arm balance. Winter is setting? Again? I thought it's summer/spring for you guys.. Gosh 8 deg is cold :/

  4. Raj, I am SO amazed at your strength, balance, and flexibility with your yoga poses. πŸ™‚ And I love your new yoga pants! πŸ˜‰ By the way, I used to be able to do the same post I believe to you – the second-last pose – many years ago…not sure what it is called, though I used to feel like a frog so it might be related! πŸ˜‰ <3
