Day.12 is #FireFly #Tittibhasana and our journey comes to an end ๐Ÿœ

YAY you.made.it ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ Are you ready to fly with me? I’ve got some good news for you. 1st: NO NEED to straighten the legs to the fullest. It’s more important to squeeze your shoulders (and not the elbows or even lower). 2nd: there is no additional technique to apply than on the last 5 days. Basically we are repeating Day.10 for Shoulder Pressing. Except that we start to straighten our legs like yesterday. Awesome, right? ๐Ÿ˜
๐ŸŽฅvid is real time

โ–ถ๏ธ start in Malasana
โ–ถ๏ธ lift your bum, place your hands right behind your heels, fingers pointing to your heels, knees as high up as possible
โ–ถ๏ธ squeeze your shoulders, knees are hugging the midline, lift your chest proudly, palms firmly pressed down
โ–ถ๏ธ your focus point is ahead of you (30-50cm / 10-20in forward)
โ–ถ๏ธ start to straighten your legs by pushing the ball of your big toe forward. It’s easier to lift the legs together
โ–ถ๏ธ FEEL THE LIFT ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ

โ—๏ธThe more you lower your bum with straight legs the more you need to lean into your fingertips. Make sure to warm-up your wrists properly with some #dreaswriststreatsย #dreastittitipsโ—๏ธ

โ–ถ๏ธ Option 1: If your wrists are not ready yet place two blocks behind your feet ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
โ–ถ๏ธ Option 2: Start from Kurmasana. Personally my fav entry ๐Ÿ˜

Today, for the first time ever, I have secret questions for you. Please let me know if you had an aha moment over the past 5 days and if so when/what was it? Is there sth you didn’t like at all and why?

Donโ€™t forget to do your warm-up. I recommend practicing Day.7 to Day.11 exercises. Then you can proceed to practice todayโ€™s pose. Thank you so much for all of you who took part in this journey to Titti. You all ROCK ๐Ÿ’ฏ
