There are times in your life when kinky is good, and then there are backbends.
When you are backbending in your yoga practice you want to take the kinks out of your hose (errr spine) because not only does spinal compression prevent you from getting a deep backbend, it also feels pretty gross.
For tips, watch the video.

Side plank is a go-to pose for concentration, balance, and core strength.
To help keep the hips from sagging, imagine a rope tied around your hips that is pulling upward toward the ceiling. ie. Lift from the BOTTOM hip, not from the top hip.

Husband: One chocolate bar for every year of marriage. One square of chocolate for every day of the year you love me.
Me: There are only 24 squares in each bar though.
Husband: Exactly.

Crow pose is all about making a teeter totter with your body and finding the balancing point.
Your heaviest part needs to shift closer to the fulcrum of your teeter totter (ie. where your arms and legs meet). The hard way to do that is to stack the weight on top of the fulcrum vertically, the easy way is to stay low and shift the weight horizontally.
Check out the video to see me explain and to see me smack my own butt at least twice.

Coffee, good music, and more time to train made for a great run. Probably the beat I've run since that time in my life when I ran on the daily.
