Eagle pose (garudasana) is a complex pose that combines hip opening, shoulder opening, and balance components. The traditional expression of this pose is most of the time frustrating to folks in bigger bodies, so variations and modifications are key here! 1. Strap for arms, thighs squeezing together 2. Foot on a block, shoulder/tricep stretch one side at a time 3. Give yourself a hug with figure-4 legs 4. Seated with traditional "eagle arms" 💥To participate, post a photo of your version of side bends and be sure to include the hashtag #bodypositiveyoga and tag me and @gtothevieve so we can see your photo and enter you into a drawing to win a Body Positive Yoga shirt of your choice! #bodypositiveyoga #bodypositive #bopo #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #bodypositivity #yogaisforeveryone #yogi #yogisofinstagram #yogainspiration #yogainspiration
It's amazing how much can change when you do. Most days I'm still in disbelief over the shift I've experienced. When you change how you see, how you talk to yourself, what lens you choose to look through, your whole reality changes too. Maybe it's scary to know we actually do have more control than we think - not always over what happens but always how we react and what we do next. I often think, what if I never gave myself the chance to try? My whole world shifted because I did. Imagine that. Photo by @michelesuits
