This is Ali. Ali doesn’t think she’s good at backbends..! Can we just tell Ali @nourishedabundance what we think of that!? Urdva Danurasana (aka Wheel pose) is such a beneficial and beautiful pose, But.. do it right..! When you’re turning yourself upside down and inside out, you really should know what goes where, what does what, and what should definitely not do ‘that!’. If your feet turn out, you are using your lower back to push you up (ouch!) If you splay your elbows, you are using your lower back to get up! Try it with a strap tied around you upper elbows and elbows over shoulders (palms flat! - you may need to turn your hand out a little to do this) and a block between your thighs (block should Descend not Ascend). If you can’t push up, well, it really doesn’t matter! Do more Yoga!

Opus Magnum: Wheel
In the sun dwells the #divine central fire, the soul of the world, which is shown here transmitting its vivifying ray of energy to #Saturn, which in turn guides it into the north wind. Fludd called the winds "the angels of the Lord (…) which realize the word of #God". They are ‘’his lambent servants’’, which bring the salt of life.
R Fludd, Philosophia Sacra, Frankfurt, 1626
So I was trying to grab my deli meat and cheese tray and curb rubbed my entire @firestonetires leaving #starbucks 😂 but that didn’t stop itty bitty from wanting to play with the rubber tire hair. Aka the tire tits. I drive the crap out of these. I can’t believe the tire tits are still there 😂 #truckstuff#jeep#firestone#firestonetires
