Locusts (& yogis) know that Salabhasana (Locust Pose) is a seemingly simple pose, but is actually a lot more interesting & challenging than it appears at first glance. It strengthens the muscles of their locust-y spines, buttocks, & backs of the arms & legs; stretches their shoulders, chest, belly, & thighs; improves posture; stimulates their abdominal organs; & helps relieve stress. Beginners may wish to lift each legs alternately off the floor, & hold for 30 seconds. You´ll never see a locust as a deadly plague again!

Gumby knows that Virabhadrasana III (Warrior 3) strengthens his ankles, legs & buttocks; strengthens his shoulders & muscles of his back; tones the core muscles of his abdomen; improves balance & posture; & helps increase his focus. Gumby makes this look effortless, but if you have trouble getting into W3, it´s a great pose to practice with a partner for support, especially if you´re a beginner.

Our yoga practices - even those with the exact same asanas - will change from one day to the next because we always work with the body we have that day. What we can do with ease one day may require extra effort the next. And that´s okay. It´s about listening to your body & being in the moment.

.. instead use those walls as a prop to deepen many of your asanas by opening, deepening, & creating space. The wall´s support & stability help you access various muscle groups in poses you might otherwise not be able to achieve while on the mat. It acts like a solid, silent partner, helps to build confidence while you deepen into the pose & achieve the correct alignment. Seems like the walls have more than ears!
