In honor of hump day, I decided to post about a new favorite asana called Grasshopper. Anything with a name like that catches my attention. Look how funky it looks!
I found a great article/ blog post that details exactly how to get into this pose, and I’m not one to reinvent the wheel, so here’s the link:
What are the benefits of this pose?
- Nourishes your spine
- Opens your hips
- Strengthens your core, shoulders, chest and buttocks (aka ass)
One of the advantages of taking pictures of myself in poses is I get to see what I need to work on. Remember, yoga is a practice, and rarely can people master certain skills without practicing them over and over again. Same goes for yoga. Seeing this picture tells me I need to work on squaring off my shoulders so one isn’t drooping more than the other, which could lead to injury. Don’t be afraid of documenting your progress! After all, if it allows you to improve and move forward, then why not?!
Happy Yoga Hump Day! Namaste away!
