The weekend's gone, and our challenges with it. Sunday was a rest day for the fast-paced challenge, but we did have the yoga challenge every day. For more up-to-date posts and updates, please check out the Instagram page "@eightsnweights".
Fast Paced: Since we have not been very consistent with the posts for the fast-paced challenge, feel free to mix it up as you like. This was the challenge for Saturday, July 20th.
This is called the 'Archer's bow'. You sit up with legs straight in front of you, grab one heel, and pull the other heel towards you so the knee bends about 90 degrees.
This is a variation of the Koundinyasana II. Start in a downward dog position, bend the elbows and put your right knee on your right elbow. Then try to lift your left knee as high as you can. Your head may come closer to the floor to give yourself some balance.
Today's pose is a variation of the regular 'Triangle'. Start with your legs straight in an upside-down V position (front foot forward and back foot at about a 90 degree angle so both heels touch the floor). Place one palm on the floor and lift the other high. Stretch forward and then lift the other palm to join the one above. Stretch forward and keep your core tight.
Cheers Eights & Weights!
