This week we are lucky enough to have our very own BaliniSports brand ambassador Lina Fong @liifong give us a step-by-step breakdown of a pose she loves.
Lina's favorite quote is: You can lie, but you can't make up the truth - Steve Harvey
We chose to make this quote our Weekly Kiss of Inspiration for our June 3rd newsletter. We really treasure Lina here at BaliniSports because she balances grace and strength so effortless. In the photo above, Lina demonstrates a pose that she loves when she's seeking relaxation. She tells us, "As I surrender and let go of my body into the earth, it feels liberating opening up the heart by placing a block underneath my shoulder blades. At the same time my legs in Baddha Konasana help to release and relax the hips and inner thighs and increase blood circulation in the lower abdomen."
But that's not the only pose Lina is passionate about! Lina has agreed to treat our readers to exclusive step-by-step pose tutorial of EKA PADA BAKASANA. Follow along and discover how this pose allows you to find strength and open your heart.
STEP 3: Start to lean forward so that the right foot lifts off the ground. Imagine you want to bring the right knee onto the right tricep but instead hover the right knee between the elbows. Continue to practice at this level, which will help build and strengthen your core and arms over time if you are not ready for the next step.
STEP 5: Come into full expression of Eka Pada Bakasana. Hold the pose and breathe.
