Day 23 of #letthewheelsturn by @cyogalab is this sideways bow. I've been working really hard on upward bow in my practice, practicing in almost every class I attend but I didn't think I was ready for this. Well, I did it! Its a great way to safely open the back and shoulders because it doesn't rely on fighting gravity like upward bow does. But like upward facing bow, I have the same problem with not bringing my knees together. I've been working on that; it used to be worse than this lol.
Also, I couldn't figure out a way to take a photo myself with the view down onto the bow so side view it is.
Doorways are my absolute favorite way to practice handstands The support from having a wall on both sides of you not only makes you feel safer upside down by preventing falling, but I feel it helps banana back so much.
Instead of just flinging yourself up into a handstand with a wall behind you, walk your legs up the wall in front of you and practice bringing one leg up at a time to find balance. This way you're not just relying on the wall behind you to catch you. + I love using it to stretch my hammies like I am here ^ as well as my back flexibility. Try it out, just be safe friends
