Day 7 of #HoHoExpress is TicTocs!
Today was another yoga breakthrough for me! (I’m loving my own challenge! πŸ˜‚) I’ve never been able to kick back over with both feet on the mat while in wheel... but today it happened! Yay!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ I decided I would post a photo as the cover today since all I’ve been posting has been videos (are you sick of them yet?) But the photo was caught mid-kick over, so I thought it would go! πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Swipe left to see some options for tomorrow’s drill. You can try kicking over with a leg split while in pincha or handstand, or by jumping with both feet, OR use a wall or chair to help you get a little height to practice kicking back over. (All shown in video) This challenge has me excited about trying things I’ve been scared of again! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ How are you liking it so far???

Holy crap! Today I totally unexpectedly landed a handstand to pincha! 😳 I haven’t even tried to do this in at least 3 years and today got it on the first try?! The body is so crazy! πŸ€ͺ I guess I was ready! πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Anywhoeooo... Day 6 of #HoHoExpress is Scorpion!
Any variation you choose is good: headstand, pincha or handstand! Feel free to use a wall if needed! πŸ’•

Day 5 of #HoHoExpress is Jump to Tuck/Pike
In the beginning of the video, I show some shoulder stretches that I like to start off with before practicing handstand. They really help out, so maybe give them a shot to stretch those shoulders! For some reason I wasn’t able to hold my handstand today when I had a sweatshirt on... πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ But when I took it off, I had more luck! So anyways, getting to today’s drill... if you don’t have your handstand yet, maybe just try tuck jumps from down dog. (As shown first) Or if you have your pincha, try jumping into tuck from dolphin pose. (Shown 2nd in video) Or third, jump from downward dog into tuck or pike handstand. As always, be sure to check out @dms_yoga to see her variations! Have fun! πŸ€—

Day 4 of #HoHoExpress is Handstand Walks
Here are 2 options you can try tomorrow: 1) Start in plank and walk yourself up to handstand against wall and 2) Shoulder shrugs. Feel free to use a spotter if facing a wall in handstand seems scary! Also, be sure to check out @dms_yoga options as well! Have fun!!

Day 3 of #HoHoExpress is Crow!
If you haven’t quite got your crow press yet {like me!πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ} maybe try working on crow pose. You can also try crow β€œpush-up,” as you can see in the 2nd video! Be sure to check out @dms_yoga for more options for tomorrow! Great job so far everyone!! HOSTS:

Day 2 of #HoHoExpress is Working Negatives
The concept is, what goes up must come down... ⬆️⬇️ So we’re practicing coming down! If you don’t have your handstand yet, you can practice come down from one slooooowlyyyy against a wall. Once you get down as far as you can without falling out, go back up! (2nd example shown in video) Another fun option for getting the feel of the β€œfloat” of pressing, is balancing on your heels in a forward fold and gently come to standing then back down! Such a tricky balance! (1st option in video) Dana will post some more options for tomorrow’s challenge, but feel free to get creative with β€œcoming down” out of your handstand! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ HOSTS:

Day 1 of #HoHoExpress with a dose of cuteness! ☺️
(We also got snow today! So fun to start a challenge out with a white, snowy surprise! β„οΈπŸ™ŒπŸΌ)
For day 1 tomorrow, we will be working on weight transfer. The first option is starting in downward dog and tiptoeing your way to your wrists and back to DD. Next you have forward fold inchworms! Again, transferring weight to be the primary goal. Crow β€œwalks” is option 3, and option 4 is standing split inchworms. 5th option... go for a banana! 🍌 πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ FOR REAL tho, check out @dms_yoga later for her versions. Remember, it’s all about fun, so no need to get discouraged if it’s tough! Just do what you can! πŸ’•πŸ˜˜ HOSTS:

I’m Megan and I love Jesus! Sometimes it would be easier to just remain in the shadows with my faith, but the truth is, my faith is my life! If I hid that part of me, I would feel like a fake... so I own it! Yes, I could probably have more followers and business opportunities if I hid the fact, but to me, in the end, is that really going to matter if I’m not being genuine? I don’t think so... so here’s to owning it!
