Local Yoga Teacher: Meet Leslie Whitecrow
Leslie Whitecrow from Tacoma, WA, E-RYT 500, chatted with us today about her 3 favorite poses and why:
Side Plank - Vasisthasana:
There are so many ways to play with this pose, that's one reason why I like it. It feels great developing the shoulder stability, and then if I want to up the challenge, lifting a leg changes what I have to focus on, all the while incorporating balance.
Firefly - Tittbhasana:
This is a fun pose to play with. Being able to simply lift off the ground feels liberating. To be able to hold the pose while extending the legs changes the whole expression.
Handstand - Adho Mukha Svanasana:
I love playing with handstands even though I don't always nail it. There's something about going upside down and seeking the balance that feels great to me. Plus, just the reverse of gravity feel awesome on my back.
