This week #yogisseyogido
is crouching lizard pose brought on by @cece.carson who was inspired by @yogamand who was in turned inspired by @yogoskenz.
I did this on Easter Monday, after a super intense yogalates class. And funnily, my husband thought I went to a yoga class & then had a latte 😂 Being all warmed up (though tired) had its advantage, balancing became more accessible especially since balancing has always been a huge challenge for me.
I’ve included a collage of videos that didn’t quite make the cut because
1) I didn’t like my hair;
2) my foot was out of the frame;
3) my head was too close to the edge of the frame;
4) my leg & hand didn’t line up the way I wanted. Blah blah blah.... In fact, I didn’t like how my lifted foot look in the main photo too but my standing leg was feeling a little bit crampy so I gave in.
I filmed all my yoga photos in my narrow living room hence I either have to place my phone in the kitchen or storage room so I’ll have enough distance. Filming at an angle with a door frame restriction is really quite challenging at times. As a result, I quite often have to try a few times before I get the angle I wanted. It’s exhausting & it’s not what yoga is. But I still do it because it’s a good way to track my progress, spot my mistakes, check my alignments or simply wanna join in the fun (like this one). I don’t film all my practices though as some days I just wanna move freely without distractions.
ETA: I just noticed I sounded like I was whining & complaining in the caption above 😂 but I wasn’t. The lack of use of emojis made the caption appeared more serious than it was intended. Lol. I really enjoyed trying out new poses & sharing my practice with this community 💖
