Yoga for back flexibility !
From beginner poses to more advanced ones.
- Cobra pose - upward facing dog
- Cat cow pose - I don’t know the name of the second pose
- Camel pose and its variation
- Bridge pose and wild thing
- Backbend and wheel pose
- Bow pose and cobra variation
Okay so I had cheer classes for my pe. At the end of the sem, I was one of the few who could do front splits. I pulled my right leg muscles while stretching a few weeks ago though so I don’t know if I still got them… Anyway, but I was also one of the few who could NOT do a full bridge! I was kind of embarrassed. But I’m gonna try fixing that starting with these stretches! I know it’s a long shot but I want to have my biellmann someday. :)
WHY SO TALENTED, YUNA?

Yuzuru Hanyu & Tatsuki Machida - interview after Worlds’ Victory Ceremony - 140328
Q: How does it feel to stand on the podium?
Y: I’m very happy. Even though I only had my FS [clean], for me to be able to do well is great.
T: I also put forth all of my effort, and I have no regrets or complaints. I was really happy that I was able to be in such an amazing competition. And next year I’m going to set this (looks at Yuzu’s medal) as my goal.
Q: Machida-senshu has said such a thing!
Y: Then I too will set this as my goal next year! (laugh)
Q: In a competition in Japan, you two are on the podium together; how does it feel to see the flag be raised up?
Y: I’m very happy. In my first time joining Worlds, it was also two sun flags. For me to be able to be here again, and sing Kimigayo* makes me really happy. (*Kimigayo is Japan’s national anthem.)
Q: (To Tatsuki) How does it feel getting this medal?
T: I feel very thankful to the hosting site, all of Japan, and everyone in the world who has supported me.
Q: After confirming your titles, is there anything that you really want to say?
Y: What were we saying? (laugh)
T: I’m happy; after skating for 20 years this has been the best competition.
Y: Me too; the score gap after the short programs really forced me to put in more of myself and ignited a strong fighting spirit in me. I’m very pleased.
Q: This has been a good shock for both of you right?
Y: I did get a pleasing shock out of this; Tatsuki-kun, you? (laugh)
T: I’ve always been inspired by Yuzuru-senshu to work hard, and always set him as my goal. Next year I won’t be kind either; I’ll definitely win over you. (laugh) A joke…but really I’m going after this (points to Yuzu’s medal).
Q: After today, you two will lead Japan’s and even the world’s men’s single figure skating. Please tell us about your thoughts regarding the future.
Y: Even though I’ve gotten gold medals at the three big world competitions, I still have many areas in which I am lacking. In how I behave, I have to improve and be able to skate a great program like Tatsuki’s “Firebird” and “East of Eden”.
T: Thank you; I also really respect the Hanyu-kun who’s gotten three world titles. And next season I hope to become a worthy rival.
I hope no one missed out on this scene. At first glance, it looks like Yuzuru borrowed a Japanese flag from someone in the audience. It wasn’t as simple as that. Yuzuru quickly realizes that the person he borrowed the flag from was a fan of Tatsuki with a gift in her hand. He tells Tatsuki after taking the picture to give back the flag. Tatsuki realizes why when he starts skating towards the group of ladies. The fan was able to give Tatsuki the gift in person.
awwww yuzu :”>
