Day 21 of #SizeDoesntMatter is #DowndogSplit (#EkaPadaAdhoMukhaSvanasana).

I always want to go deeper in this pose, but my hands always slide down my mat when I raise my extended leg. I can’t tell you how many times I have face planted in pursuit of downdog splits, y’all. It would probably be embarrassing if I had even a shred of shame. Anyway, today I thought to turn my mat over- my @lululemon #yoga mat is reversible and the black side is excellent for hot yoga because the base layer uses the sweat your body produces to help stick you to the mat (It’s called “The Mat” for those of you who are wondering). Anyway, I rarely think to flip my mat when I’m not practicing #hotyoga which is SO STUPID because I still get sweaty enough during my home practice to validate use of the second side.Using the second side, I was able to really dig in my hands to reach some of my deepest downdog splits ever. I am still reeling from the benefits of that stretch, y’all. So grateful. I am so thankful for this feeling. Namaste.

Day 22 of #FlowForAll w/ me, @nolatrees, and our generous sponsors @fractal.9, @personalrecordofficial, & @lineagewear transitions into #ardhamatsyendrasana before moving into a trio of #splits- #standingsplit (where I always feel my leg is higher than it actually is), #downdogsplit, full #hanumanasana and then repeat on the opposite leg. Modify wherever it feels good- stack your hands on blocks in downdog split and hanuman, for instance. Or slide a block under your front thigh in #monkeypose.

There are far too many people who inspire my daily practice to try and shout out to everyone individually, but I’m a little too obsessed w/ @cbquality to not mention her influence on my practice. I can’t tell you how much her hip opening inspires me- seriously, watch her #downdogsplits and #standingsplits, y’all. I can’t even. And the way she switches from one leg to the other in #hanumanasana? I’m in love. #trillyoga till the end. #cbqualitylife

D13: Adho Mukha Svanasana | Down Dog Split var. ⭐️ What a tricky little pose. It was very challenging to square the hips because it felt easier to open the hips. I just had to remind myself to breathe in the asana. It’s not totally square but I think it’s damn close! 😁 @deemoi
