backbend

As I continue to practice asana, the more I experience that it’s never about the pose. It was in between poses that I paused and thought “this is where I am… and it’s amazing”. We’re always so focused on getting from point A to point B that we miss the glorious in-between, the present moment. ✨ wearing: IG @neontideswimwear

Do me a favor: raise your hand if you’re fat and you’ve ever been disrespected while innocently exercising. Um, me too. On a regular basis, fat athletes are mocked, discriminated, and emotionally assaulted. Don’t know what we’re talking about? In collaboration with my awesome #partner @catherinesplus, I blogged about it over on my Tumblr - click the link in my Instagram bio to check it out! #CatherinesStyle (at Durham, North Carolina)

I present my very first attempt at some minor pole tricks!
Now you can watch me climb a pole like a dingus, but for my first try I wasn’t half bad! 😎
Thank you @wicked_wednesday for your amazing teaching skills, I will definitely be over more often! ✨

anonymous asked:

some sliiiight nsfw lavi x allen sketch? Allen with cute booty shorts??

It’s not quite what you asked for, but it was the first thing that came to mind. I imagine Allen wears cute athletic-wear when sparring. Naturally he starts to show off some acrobatics when he’s winning. With Lavi, their sparring would be more goofy. 

You do know that the muscles of your back are part of your “core” muscles too, right? Those muscles that help support the spine; from the lower back extensors to the shoulder retractors as well as those little intervatebral muscles up and down the spinal column are all part of the core. Your core is more than just crunches and planks. Just sayin’.

Spinal extensions and shoulder flexion adduction/abduction w/gliders. Workout healthy. Know your anatomy. It’s your body.
