  1. I've seen yesterday first two episodes, it's awesome
  2. Great project and beautiful post on the blog, I totally agree with you. Strengthening my whole body is one of my purposes for next months, so this challenge couldn't be more suitable. I think I'll chose wheel, I'd like to build strength in shoulders and core to lift a leg (or even a feet!) from floor in that pose, which seems me something inconceivable now I'll work also on full boat pose to balance. Thanks for another awesome project
  3. I've chosen splits for this project because I want to focus on hips and hamstrings opening this month. I could do splits at gymnastic classes when I was a little girl, maybe I'll can do them again ithis year at the age of 47! I'll work on wheel and bow pose too, to open the chest a little bit more. Happy YBC April project to you all!
  4. My pose for this challenge is bird of paradise, so I'll working on balance, hip opening and flexibility. I would like to straighten the leg one day! Capture the moment to take the picture will be a big issue, but that's the reason I've chosen this pose
  5. I've not that audience on social media, but I've shared on Facebook, Instagram, twitted and pinned on my yoga board the link. Hope that helps!
  6. My rose and thorn of past week are both related to my mother, who died several months ago. The thorn is that I've had to close her bank account, and this simple bureaucratic issue, last one of the very numerous and tortuous things to do in such situations, has given to me an extreme sense of emptiness. But I've had a bright rose, also: I've received a few old pictures from my parents’ friend. There is one with my mother and my father when I was a little girl: they were so young, peaceful and happy in those photos and it was sweet and touching to see them in such a beautiful moment. This has brightened up all my memories.
  7. Hi Candace! I was pretty sure I had a decent shoulder flexibility, but when I tried to make necessary rotation and movement to come into king dancer pose my shoulder was completely blocked! What poses and stretches do you suggest to focus on to increase shoulders flexibility and opening that are needed to come in Natarajasana? Thanks!
  8. Hi, I've never been to a Bikram yoga class, but I recently found a school here in my town and I'm curios, even if this style of yoga intimidates me a little. I'd like to hear your opinions and suggestions about it Have a great day and weekend!
  9. I've really loved yesterday's sequence for tight hips, it made me feel soo good and ready for my dancer's pose practice. I think I'll add very often this sequence to my yoga routine
  10. Hi! I'm planning to buy a Manduka eko Superlite for my short vacations, anyone has just tested this mat and its grip? Thanks
  11. Thanks Candace Wooow, a mini split, so today's hip flexors sequence will be perfect!
  12. Good morning! I have a question about wheel pose: I can reach this pose and hold it for about 8-10 breaths, I can go on tippy toes for a few seconds, but the only idea of lifting one leg seems me crazy! Where do you think I have to work and focus on? Shoulders strength? Core strength? Thanks and have a great day you all!
  13. Hi everybody, what an amazing and exciting challenge! I'll focus mainly on dancer's pose, but I'll try to work on wheel and bow too, to build some strenght and flexibility in back and shoulders. Have a nice practice
  14. Of course, maybe next weekend I'll have some time to make my first tests!
  15. Hi! Today I've received the dehydrator I've ordered a couple of days ago, with a recipe book to find some good ideas. I can't wait to test it, I think I'll start with something easy like sweet potato or apple chips, but I've seen a very interesting recipe: a sort of "wafer" made with squeezed orange juice wastes. I love citrus and I love to recycle, so that's very intriguing. I'll let you know
