thankful thursday: poses 41/52

IMG_20141010_212307

I’m thankful for Tiffany Cruikshank + Yogaglo for getting me into this crazy pose. A variation of Grasshopper. There are many interpretations of this pose…baby Grasshopper, full Grasshopper, or the odd variation above.

This class on Yogaglo and this class will get you there. If you’re not on Yogaglo and you’d like to try this pose, I suggest the following articles and tutorials. It is a massive twist and insane hip opener, but also requires a decent amount of strength. That troubling and puzzling thing in yoga when a pose becomes doubly hard because it takes a ton of flexibility AND strength. Also, it’s one of those really rare poses that is actually much harder to get into than be in.

Baby Grasshopper

I’m thankful for the internet and its resources! Without it, crazy poses like this would not be possible!
