#TomsYogaMadness 2018? 🤸🏼♀️🏀🤸🏻♂️ Congrats Nicole !!! 🎉🎉🎉
Once again, I’m combining the NCAA Basketball Championship with....A Yoga Challenge!! What??? 😱😱😱 That's right, I give you "Tom's Yoga Madness Bracket Challenge!"
Here's how it works: 1) DM me for an invite link to play OR use the link in my bio. Sign up with CBS Sportsline and fill out your bracket online. The app will keep track of ALL the wins and losses. 2) The tournament takes place over 3 weeks and starts this Thursday (3/15.) When the first set of games end this Sunday, the 2 yogis with the most bracket points will present the yoga pose that makes them feel triumphant!! 3) The rest of us will have until the following Thursday (3 days) to post our version of the triumphant poses! 4) The same applies for Rounds 3 and 4, as well as rounds 5 and 6 (known as the Final Four.) So, that's 3 rounds and 6 poses over the course of 3 weeks. Easy, right? 5) The Top 2 winners of the entire challenge will receive a prize from me! .
You'll need to complete your bracket by Thursday (3/15) at 12:00pm EST. Filling in the bracket is easy. You can even have the computer pick the games for you. No real knowledge is needed. Most of the time, those who think they know the most, perform the worst! 😂😂😂

🏆🏄♀️🌟 Day 2️⃣2️⃣ of #WinnerInnerBalance with @cyogalab ➡️ #UtthitaHastaPadangusthasana in #ArdhaUstrasana 🌟🏄♀️🏆 Confession: This isn’t an objectively easy variation. (Derp.) However, though the balance can be tricky, most of my students find it far more approachable than lifting two limbs in #wheel, as rather than making contact with the floor on only one hand + one foot, you have both a hand and the length of your shin connecting you to the floor.
Be sure to stretch your hamstrings + warm up your back body/spine before trying this shape. Step your right foot forward into #lowlunge aka #anjeneyasana, keeping your back toes curled under. Press into your right foot to lift your hips up and back (taking some of the stretch out of your left hip flexors) , and slowly begin to lean back, reaching your left hand either to the floor or a block (or two). Once you’re stable, send your hips forwards like in a regular #ustrasana aka #camelpose, bending your right knee into your chest as you do so. If the hamstring stretch isn’t happening, keep your right leg bent and hold on just below the kneecap; otherwise, grab your big toe with peace fingers and thumb, and extend the leg. Whichever variation you try, work to square your chest up to the ceiling. Do both sides, of course!
When we’re throwing off our center of gravity by lifting regular points of contact in these asymmetrical #asanas, I think that other than a good warmup and the right props, a sense of humor is the single most important tool you can brandish on the road to finding balance. So, have fun, smile if you stumble, and remember to #keeppracticing!
