Yoga Selfies & Journey to Handstand

Yoga Selfies

Some may think selfies are a product of narcissism, but around here, we simply view them as a way to document progress.  When I first started practicing yoga regularly in January 2014, I could barely hold a Warrior I without losing my balance.  Since then, I’ve hit new PRs of Warrior III [almost on a paddle board!], Crow, Side Crow and most recently, Headstand.  If I can do this, YOU can do this!

Taking pictures of your practice will allow you to gauge your starting point and visually view your progress over time.  Some may do weight loss photos, some take check-out-my-abs selfies, and well, we take yoga pics!  This was me four weeks ago, getting help and support [from Kelli @HarborYogaStudio] in headstand…

And this was me [on the right] recently, supporting myself!  Progress!

I’ve found that I’ve hit a lot of my PRs in running, so yoga has allowed me to achieve new accomplishments physically and mentally.  Whatever your yoga goals are ~ flexibility, balance, strength, improved running times ~ why not take photos to visually document your progress along the way?!

The famous yoga mom, Laura Sykora [Kasperzak], demonstrates her progress through visuals on Instagram.  Check out her amazing Scorpion progress below…
