Beautiful practice, thank you Shelley...
Pushing up into wheel pose is my white whale....something I have been working to accomplish for a while. I always get stcuk on the crown of my head and just cannot make that final move into the full pose. I came pretty close today with this practice, though, so thank you for the tips! I will keep at it!
HI Catherine ! I love the "white whale" comment ;) and it's fitting, bc I often talk with my students about how (for many of us) wheel is one of those postures you have to really "earn" takes time, patience, perseverance, and most importantly~ enthusiasm! Happy practicing!
Thank you Magdalena ! Wheel is one of my most difficult, but most satisfying postures to work with....happy yoga to you!
Such a clear and beautiful class. Thank you!
Margi ! Thank you very much, I am so glad you enjoyed it! Happy practicing!

Kate Yes! A backbend a day keeps the doctor at bay... xoxoxo
