Come to standing. Separate your feet wider than hip width and sit down into a squat position. Bring the hands a few inches in front of the feet, palms planted and fingers spread wide. Come up onto the balls of the feet and start to bend the elbows, keeping the arms close to the body. Bring the knees onto the triceps, near the armpits. Looking forward, start to squeeze the knees against the arms and come up onto the tippy toes. Then start to release one foot off of the mat and then the other foot, to come into the balance. Hold pose for 3 steady breaths.l To challenge yourself, try doing the pose on a Paddleboard, as seen here!

I was traveling for work and missed out on posting this on May 1st. Boo on me!
Isn’t instagram just a place for people to show pointless photos of the food they ate for breakfast? Why, yes it is, and we like dumb photos of the food you ate for breakfast, but we especially like photos of you practicing yoga. So, If you don’t have an instagram, and want to join our pose of the day challenge, we encourage you to get that started, and follow along. We ask that you hashtag each pose with #everydayinmayty (we added the ty at the end b/c there may be other challenges with this caption) Thank you, and we can’t wait for May one!
Favorite part of the day: Sunset beach yoga after work :)
