Play Ball.

pilates ball ideasInspired by several random photos and videos I found doing ‘yoga research’ on the internet I decided to play with my Pilates ball to work on several poses I’ve been stuck on for a while… Shown above is an image of Eka Pada Rajakapotasana with a little help from the ball.  With the aid of the ball it’s more accessible to keep the back from over-arching and from crunching the lumbar spine. 

 The pike up to handstand from forward fold with both legs together, is made a lot easier when your feet are on the ball rather than the floor…

One piece of advice: it really matters how big your ball is for both of these explorations.  For example, the bigger the ball, the easier both of these poses are.  Here I am trying to pike up on my giant ball:
