Want to fly? Tittibhasana aka Firefly tips

My BodyFlow students always ask me how to get their legs up and flying in Tittibhasana aka Firefly pose. It took me nearly a year before my feet would even lift off the ground. I would work to open my hips and core weekly. Finally, my feet lifted – an inch! As I practice more, my legs got a little higher. The height really doesn’t matter. The feeling that you can fly does. It’s euphoria! So here’s a video to get you flying. 

As always, make sure your warm before attempting any pose. Do some some salutations, navasanas (boat pose), squats, low lunges and hamstring stretches. Special credit to Lorraine Bradley (@catbradleyyoga) for reminding me of this great tip. Enjoy!
