Flying Frog Flow and Tutorial

The first time I saw a Flying Frog pose I actually thought it was a poorly done Crow pose. But, once I thought through the nuances of the posture, I could see it’s great benefit.

1. It’s an arm balance and arm balances build strength, endurance and confidence.

2. The hips are wide, like in frog on the mat. It’s an amazing stretch through the hips.

3. My shoulders are naturally tight and fight to surround my heart. It’s the result of old trauma and I have been doing a lot of work to create new space through my shoulders, back and chest. Arm balances are a great challenge for me in my shoulders and I’ve become really intentional about softening my heart forward in arm balances – flying frog is no different. Hearts open, holy yogis!

I’ve put Flying Frog into a little flow for you. It’s so important to see how each pose can connect to the next. If you’re filming or photographing your practice on Instagram – tag me! I want to celebrate with you! Come follow me at @stephaniemmoors.

Is Perspective Truth?

Perspective can be a beast, can’t it? What’s interesting is that the word ‘perspective’ has multiple meanings. It can be both our point of view or the art of drawing objects on a solid plane to give the correct impression of their height, depth and width. Either way – perspective is our brain’s attempt toRead On….

I Don’t Usually Photograph Weddings…

They’re just not my thing. I like GOING to weddings and I like SEEING the photos other photographers have taken, but I’m not a wedding photographer.
