  1. I have a similar question about foot positioning when transitioning from chaturanga to upward dog to downward dog. I can do all 3 poses on their own, but can never seem to "roll over my toes" or transition in between the poses. Are there any tricks to doing that?
  2. I would do mid-week!
  3. I have this same problem! I bought the mat a few months ago and have been using it daily and it's not AS slippery as it was initially, but it's still fairly slippery. I am always slipping too, even if it's a more gentle practice and I'm not particularly sweaty. I keep meaning to try the salt scrub, but haven't gotten around to it. I would love to hear if anyone else has done it and if it has worked.
  4. I've had a few surgeries and had my feet in casts on and off this year, and found that chair yoga videos helped. I also found some more restorative/gentle or beginner yoga videos and would modify those and just skip the poses I couldn't do. It was really frustrating at first, because I wanted to be able to do everything in the videos, but then I realized that doing something was probably better than nothing. I hope the MRI gives you some answers and everything turns out ok!
  5. Thank you!
  6. I have one and actually use it a lot more than I thought I would! I use it during yin practices mostly but will also use it for chest openers or during savasana in some more of my vinyasa practices. I also use it for meditation. I bought the YogaDirect Supportive Rectangular Cotton Yoga Bolster by YogaAccessories on Amazon. It is well priced and firm and supportive.
  7. I feel the same way--it seems that I feel a bit more flexible or able to go deeper in a pose during every practice. It's nice to feel that progress! I'm not sure my heels will ever touch the floor in downward dog though...I never feel progress there! haha
  8. I don't really have any advice, but I feel the exact same way! I used to go to classes a few years ago and that helped with motivation because I would have them scheduled, but now I only practice at home and it can be hard to find motivation to practice regularly when life gets in the way.
  9. This is a great idea--thanks! I am moving in a few days and my new place is fully carpeted and I was wondering how I was going to practice. I am going to try making one of these boards!
  10. I think the best mascara is Shiseido's Perfect Mascara Defining Volume. I swear I've tried every mascara and this is the only one I will use now! They make my eyelashes long and full and it stays on all day.
  11. I got the Manduka prolite a few months ago and I love it! It was VERY slippery when I first got it though and took a fairly long time for that to go away but it's a great mat otherwise.
