  1. thanks YogaFire and Candace. YogaFire I have to avoid headstands to from time to time. They just aggravate my neck. My shoulders have gotten a lot stronger with inversions and it seems like they stay tense. So I'm thinking that contributes to the neck issue. Thanks for sharing your experience with this. Thanks Candace ....I appreciate all of the feedback. I do have a tendancy to lean forward with my head. My chiro told me that years ago and a Pilates friend on Instagram. I have to work on consciously keeping my head in correct alignment. Thanks so much. I love that video you shared. I found it yesterday after I posted the question.
  2. Hi Candace I posted this in another part of the forum..now I'm seeing this is where it should go. I have a thin long neck. I do arm balances and inversions often..as well as sitting at a desk so I have a lot of tension in my neck. Do I need to continue to just stretch and open the shoulders to help with this or is there something I can do to strengthen my neck? OH and Candace I've seen your post "8 Poses for the Neck and Shoulders" ....that is helpful. Thanks

  4. I rarely buy expensive yoga gear but I would love to invest in a few good pairs of leggings. For tops I use the Champion tops from Target and they are ok for now but I'll have to check out F21. So Athleta will be on my watchlist.
  5. I think it helps me with my form but sometimes is distratcting because I end up critiquing the way my clothes fit...which is silly but true. When I'm at home I don't think about that at all.
  6. Very interesting post. I have hypermobile joints too....knees, hips, elbows....so I have to really be careful because I can't necessarily feel when they are hyperextending in poses. I think my elbows are the worst. Thanks for the great tips above
  7. LOL I still have overalls from the 90s...so no judgment here. Thanks for sharing the link.
  8. I would like to go one day but would be up for other options.
  9. I use coconut daily. For my skin, or to deep condition my children's hair...super thick and curly, for oil pulling, etc. It's amazing.
