Joy to the Yogis Sassyyogi’s Christmas Challenge
Day 1 Revolved wide legged standingforward fold
Day 2 Rabbit pose
Day 3 Warrior III with eagle arms
Day 4 Standing splits
Day 6 Hindi Squat
Day 7 Seated side stretch
Day 9 Forearm wheel
Day 10 Reclining hero pose
Day 12 Thread the needle pose
Finally catching up on yoga challenge poses! I did the ones I could up to the 12th. For fallen angel pose I need to keep working on doing crow pose to build up my arm strength. I can do the handstand prep and dolphin pose, but I forgot to take the photos for them. I actually was trying out Koundinyasana and can get to a certain point, but am still touching the ground. I think for my break I will be working on crow pose and doing arm excercises to help out with arm balances.
Finally the semester is over and I’m heading out tomorrow for a short trip for my friend’s birthday! :D

For shin splints…try hero pose
This is a very mild, gentle movement that is designed to relieve pressure on the shins, says Stiles. “The even pressure feels great for most runners.”
Try it: Stand on your knees so they are aligned under your hips. Press the tops of your feet down and into the ground. Press your thumbs into your legs, behind your knees, open your calves out to the sides and sit your hips down to the ground (if your butt doesn’t touch the ground, sit on a yoga block or a rolled up yoga mat). Hold for 10 breaths.

*You can also rest your legs on the wall while laying on the floor- you should be bent at a 90 degree angle at your hips with your legs straight up. Breathe in and out slowly.

symphonyofawesomeness:

Since shin splints can happen when your calf muscles become stronger than the shin muscles, one way to prevent shin splints in the first place is to do some strengthening exercises. Heel walks are beneficial, but here’s a simple move you can do while at your desk.
Sit on a chair that’s tall enough to allow your toes to point without touching the floor.
Place a two- to six-pound dumbbell vertically in between your feet, squeezing the weight gently to keep it in place.
Begin by pointing your toes toward the floor. Then flex your feet and lift your toes as high as you can. This is one repetition.
Complete three sets of 12 reps, stretching your shins with the Reclining Hero in between each set.
