Hello from Tennessee and the land of Samuel, my dear friend's 1-month-old baby!
I'm in infant heaven over here (after a day of airline + travel hell) and wish I could bottle up all of this cuteness + give you a little spritz of baby goodness during savasana ;) But alas, since I cannot, lets talk yoga...
In the last Mat Matters episode we worked on wheel, or urdhva dhanurasana with blocks. In episode #67, we're taking it deeper and breaking down one of my favorite transitions into this pose: The drop back from flip dog (aka "rockstar" or in some circles, "wild thing") into full wheel.
Why do I love this transition? Because it's kind of scary--which makes it thrilling--it's challenging, and when you get it right, it feels REALLY good in the body.
So lets try it, shall we? You can watch the video here or on my YouTube Channel, where you can also subscribe so that you never miss an episode.
Have fun + make sure you're warmed up before you attempt this transition at home! ;)
