January 9th…The #NYGPicADay is “I am”, which is forever a student. ‍♀️
.
.
April of 2016 was a month of saying “F#%^ it! I’m going to try it!” I was primarily speaking of the #asana practice and poses that my body just couldn’t (or wouldn’t) come into.
.
.
This was my very first attempt at #Hanumanasana or #splits. My entire lower body was not even close to being warmed up, but #angrydetermination compelled me. My hips were not properly aligned, and I was so sore afterwards that I was unable to walk and had to ice my quads for a week.
.
.
That moment was sooo crucial in the #yogajourney, since there was nowhere left to go but up. Although the bottom photo is a backbend I finally found #innerpeace with being wherever I was in the practice. That was the TRUE #transformation. ‍♀️ @alilmorenaughtyyogagirl .
