Tomorrow is Day 3 of #yogashapeshifters and we are sharing Aswang, a mythological creature in the Philippines. . Aswang is a mix of vampire and witch and almost always disguised as a beautiful woman. By day she is quite and elusive...by night she shape shifts into a deadly beast with blood shot eyes. . To repress Aswang, we chose this beautiful hybrid #camelpose at the wall, inspired by @this_dog_is_down. Swipe👈to see hers and to see how I got into it. This is quite a backbend and I highly recommend using a sticky mat like my @proyog here, otherwise your knees we slide and you may bend deeper than your body is ready for. . Have fun with this pose! It’s a pretty one and fun to try! Remember we hosts are posting a full day in advance, so you have plenty of time to try it. Check out my Co Hosts for more inspiration.💖 . @mrs_khaleesi_gaither @geeoice_yoga @leighyogipilot @renny_sito .

Are you ready to make some cool shapes inspired by mythological creatures from folklore around the world? Join us! *Update: I just put modification ideas in my Stories!* . This shape is for Kitsune, a Japanese fox with 9 tails who can fly! Kitsune is an intelligent and magical being who shape shifts into human form, cloning itself into anyone they want to be. . For tomorrow’s pose, we are cloning ourselves into the badass SaltLifePiratePrincess herself, otherwise known as @brittanybhuckaby, with this awesome #eightangleposevariation. . Swipe👈to see hers and to see the video of how I got into this it...more importantly how I exited out of it like a slinking fox...😂 . Kinda looks like a flying fox with a tail, eh?! . If this balance is not quite accessible for you, modifications are highly encouraged and celebrated! One idea would be to prop your foot (tail) on a cute pouf or bench or...? Let your creativity run wild! . SAVE this post and TRY it!! Join in for ANY one or all 7 days of #yogashapeshifters . Hosts @mrs_khaleesi_gaither @geeoice_yoga @leighyogipilot @renny_sito .

It’s time for #yogaShapeShifters! Are you ready!!?? This challenge starts tomorrow and we are sharing each daily assignment a full day in advance cuz these poses are quite unique. Join us!! 7 days of super fun yoga shapes! . Here’s your fist assignment: . LESHY, a Slovenian woodland spirit who protects wild animals and forests. A Leshy usually appears as a tall man, but he is able to change his size from that of a blade of grass to a large tree. He has hair and a beard made from grass and vines, is usually missing a right ear and is sometimes depicted with a tail, hooves, and horns. He is the forest lord and carries a club to express that he is the master of the wood. . For Leshy, we chose this cool and shifty #treepose inspired by @krisjamaica and I included her pic in the second slide as well as a video of how to work yourself into it. . For more inspiration, check out my Shape Shifting co Hosts: @mrs_khaleesi_gaither @geeoice_yoga @leighyogipilot @renny_sito .

Doesn’t everyone watch TV like this...? . Hahaha, just kidding😂 Playing along with my favorite hosts for Day 4 #balancethatasana3 Swipe👈for the video of how I got into this crazy ass pose and to hear the warm encouragement from my long time friend @findyoursunshine coaching me into it. And no, I’m not leaning against anything, though once again, I was tempted.😅 This pose was surprisingly accessible to me having very open hips and just had an amazing workout focus on side bends. . The farther forward you can get your bottom shoulder, the more leverage you can find to lift the top leg.

Wanna know why orange is my favorite color? Not only is it a safe color for our helicopters, (3 out of 4 of our fleet are painted bright orange) cuz you can see them from far away, but also... “Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.” Orange is the color of fall and harvest and this new neon lily color from @aloyoga could just be my new most favorite color ever!! 🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊 #balancethatasana3 Day 2 #headstand with @seacoralyoga @yogaandchaigirl @bluesuntara @livinleggings @bethanysmithyoga .

The number one question I get is “How did you become a helicopter pilot? And how can I do it too?” I started writing my Story a while back (part 1 through 8) and you can read it at #leighsHeliLife, or you can click the link in my Bio and listen to the podcast interview I did with @titanium_blonde1. What do you think...should I share part 9 and finish writing my story...? . Photo by @fly_in_adventures at the #highsierraflyin 🙏💃 . . .

First day in my new apartment and I’m already getting my neighbors conditioned to seeing my poolside shenanigans...😂 . Check out my Stories for the video of my wobbly handstand and to see why I think this screenshot is so funny...or do you already see it?☺️🤣 . I love traveling and exploring, but I also LOVE to be home and I crave daily routine. Waking up in my new Arizona home and I’m so excited to get back into my daily rituals and focus on my fitness again. I’ve been slacking in that department and I’ve got one month to train for a VERY exciting event coming up. . Stay tuned for that, but in the mean time, anyone know of a good personal trainer in the North Phoenix area...like one that can perform miracles? Help please!🙏🙌😊 . @aloyoga #aloyoga #handstand #arizonayoga #phoenixyoga #bowandarrowlegs #bowandarrow #poolside #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #bloopers #armbalance #personaltrainer wanted ASAP

A celebratory handstand after the end of a long two days of moving this beautiful plane. My good friend experienced a total engine failure on take off and miraculously landed it safely, with no damage in a brushy field. . Most importantly, both pilots on board were not injured at all...just startled. Mike and I were flying, caravan style, with them after the #highsierraflyin, heading South in search of some hot springs. We stopped for fuel in Bishop, California, and the winds were too strong for the Antinov to take off again. So Mike and I continued in the helicopter without them, figuring they would meet us at the hot springs the next morning. But sadly they never showed up. We flew back to find them safe in a field but most definitely stuck. I’ve been sharing, play by play in my Stories and you can watch the whole thing if you click on my highlighted Stories called StillHeliTrippin. . We’ve gotten the plane to a suitable road to take off from to get it to the airport. The pilot and mechanic are deciding whether or not it’s safe to do so. Otherwise the wings will have to come off and the plane will have to get trucked to the airport. But the wheel base of the plane is wider than any truck available...so it will be quite an ordeal. The Antinov AN2 is the largest single engine biplane ever built. It’s quite a machine...and it’s more like a flying motor home. He’s had this plane for 20 years and flown it all the way through the Caribbean and down through Central and South America...even flew it to Burning Man this year. Wish us luck as we try to save this very special plane! . Stay tuned and I’ll be updating my Stories as decisions get made. . #handstand #theplayfulyogipilot #antonov #airplane #aviation #avgeek #pilot #indianajones #bowandarrowlegs #teamresolutionhs2019 #resolutionhandstand

Traveling by helicopter is super fun and exciting...it’s like Van Life except it’s a smaller vehicle and can go very off road...😂 But it’s not without its own challenges. Imagine packing everything you will need for six months into the back seat of your car. What would you take with you? It really becomes all about priorities, so I packed my toiletries, a few leggings, camping gear, and yes, highest on my priority list was my standup paddle board! Thanks to @irockersup for making the best inflatable board that packs down small enough to travel with...I LOVE this thing!!!! . No time for paddling today though...this pic was a few days back in BC, Canada. Today I’m in the dry desert, in Bishop, California, working on an unsolved opportunity, the term I use for the word “problem.” Check out my Stories to see the play by play. It’s a story that I don’t know yet how it’s gonna end...🤔 .

An early morning selfie out in the high desert during the #highsierraflyin. Froze my ass off camping cuz my air mattress popped and I ended up sleeping on the cold hard ground...using the term “sleeping” very loosely here. I may have gotten 2 hours of restless shut eye. Crawled out of my tent at 4:30am looking for a warm fire which I found...surrounded by the other red eyed, sleep deprived, frozen tent campers who were as I’ll prepared as I was. But it was an amazing experience and I will most definitely be back for it next year...with better camping equipment in hand! . Finally sharing a #selfie for all of you who tagged me for #womenempoweringwomen. No filter, just magical desert lighting, before the sun came up. . Flying South today in search of hot springs. I’ll probably not have any cell service for a few days and I’ll be camping with friends along the way. Got a new thermarest and a new tent, so I’m ready for it! I’ll update my Stories when I catch a cell signal! Big Love to you all😘😘😘 Tagging some amazing Women in case you haven’t yet shared a selfie! . #magicasanamonday @alpnrock #alpnrock #camping #desert #pilot #aviation #femalepilot #magichour
