Palms Hawai'i

Poetry, photographs and inspiration. from my palms to yours...

On The Mat: Bakasana (Crow Pose or Crane Pose)Bakasana was the first arm balance that I learned, so if you’ve been wanting to try an arm balance but don’t know where to begin, this is for you!1. Start by standing with your feet hips-width distance apart, then come down into a squat. (You should look like you are about to play a game of leapfrog by yourself)2. Bring your hands in front of you, shoulder-width distance apart and spread your fingers out wide. This allows you to have more stability and surface-contact with the ground.3. Hinge forward at your torso, your elbows will naturally begin to bend slightly, allowing your triceps to act like a shelf.. Place your knees on your triceps and gaze forward. 4. Then start to experiment and play with the transfer of your weight into the palms of your hands, as you lift your toes of the ground, one foot at a time. Be patient with yourself, as you may still be building strength. Don’t forget to tkeep breathing and smiling.5. Eventually you will balance soley on your hands!Challenge: For those of you who want to take Bakasana to the nxt level, maybe try shifting your weight onto one side and extending the opposite leg straight back for Eka Pada Bakasana (One Legged Crow Pose)

I’m totally fine knowing that probably no one will give me a job with pay of what I’m worth after I graduate. I have nothing to lose because I was going to give life everything I got anyways. I’m grateful for the opportunity to take a chance and build my own dreams from scratch, instead of dedicating my life to help someone with a little padding in their pocket build theirs. So economy, I smile sweetly at you and at the boundaries that you attempt to place upon me. I’m not going to wait for a path to be made when I’ve got the keys to a bulldozer.

I think I like it
Because it scares me.
