Ashtanga Floating . In this transition you cross your legs and pull into crow and then a plank. Try to avoid any contact when jumping through until the legs are straight and ready for the next asana. To practice this, you can place two blocks where my hands are located. When you press up you’ll have a height advantage making it easier to curl and bring your legs through. Try to do this as slow and controlled as possible. I try to do this in three breaths. This can be extremely challenging and often takes students months or years. There are roughly 30 seated floats in the Primary Series. Once you can float, your practice will gain grace, strength, and focus. Your shoulders and core will tone up making inversions later in the series a piece of cake. Youtube is a great resource to break this down. I trained with Kino Macgregor in 2012 and I recommend her videos to learn Ashtanga at home, but nothing compares to Mysore in the studio. . . #yogademo #floatingyoga #ashtangayoga #ashtanga #floatingpractice #yogadenver #denveryoga #5280 #vinyasaflow #mysore #vinyasa #yogatips
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend. I’m painting some larger pieces, but I will post some videos of Ashtanga floating transitions into asanas in the meantime. There’s a poll in my story if you want this account to be paint only 😉 . . . That’s my baby boy, Bufford. I got him through Oprah in a really weird way. I’ll save that story for another time. . . . #dogsofcolorado #coloradodogs #dogsofdenver #denverdogs #dogsofinstaworld #dogsofinsta #tongue

First attempt of crow into handstand. I won’t wobble next week. I had a long practice today and I was a bit tired before trying this 😂 @rmbetcher does this count? Are there breath counts in this challenge? . . . . #yogapose #yogadude #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #vinyasa #vinyasayoga #meditation #denverartist #yogadenver #yoga #5280 #denvercolorado #denveryoga
I’m training to start ”tick tocs” in the Ashtanga Intermediate Series. A tick toc is when you go into a backbend from standing and use your core to go back to standing out of the bend. . . Ashtanga has been the most difficult style of yoga for me to undertake. Mysore Ashtanga (the style I practice) is done in complete silence 6 days a week and the teacher only adjusts you on a one-on-one basis and decides when you are ready for the next posture. . . Introduction and Primary Series classes are led by a teacher in Sanskrit. If you’re new to yoga, you can start out in led or Mysore (which is one of the oldest practices). . . #guruji #pattabhijois #yogapose #yogadude #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #vinyasa #vinyasayoga #meditation #denverartist #yogadenver #yoga #5280 #denvercolorado #denveryoga
Chakrāsana. (Wheel Pose) . “Yoga, as a way of life and a philosophy, can be practiced by anyone with inclination to undertake it, for yoga belongs to humanity as a whole. It is not the property of any one group or any one individual, but can be followed by any and all, in any corners of the globe, regardless of class, creed or religion.” - Krishna Pattabhi Jois (Guruji) . #guruji #pattabhijois #yogapose #yogadude #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #vinyasa #vinyasayoga #meditation #denverartist #yogadenver #yoga #5280 #denvercolorado #denveryoga #yogavideo #backbend #backbends

”A Perfect Sonnet” 18”x 24” | acrylic on paper . Another twist on comparing love is in my story. I find the song and poem below were meant for each other. The song for me is the second chapter. I often paint feelings - it’s a ’lil thing called abstract expressionsim... I think... . . . . . ”Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer's lease hath all too short a date. Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, And often is his gold complexion dimmed; And every fair from fair sometime declines, By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed; But thy eternal summer shall not fade, Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st, Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade, When in eternal lines to Time thou grow'st. So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.” - William Shakespeare, Sonnet 18 . . #loveisadogfromhell #bukowski #poetry #literature #shakespeare #thebard #abstractpainting #artshare #contemporarypainting #newcontemporary #newcontemporaryart #deco #designer #denverinteriors #kunst #abstractogram #abstract #abstractexpressionism #abstractogram #5280 #denverartist #jasonwagnerart
The ol’ art versus artist thang. Sorry I look like Randy from the Trailer Park Boys. I’ve ruined too many shirts. I’m lazy and just picked whatever was recently on my phone. . . #artistoninstagram #artistofinstagram #artvsartist2019 #igart #denverartist #randy

It’s been one year since I picked up the paint brush. I decided to paint my first piece from last year reimagined as volcanic (swipe to see the original). Time flies and I’m pumped to see how I paint this scene in 2020. . I’m super grateful for everyone who has supported me along the way and I appreciate the daily encouragement. I didn’t know “paint everyday” was a creative challenge, but I knocked it out by mistake. I paint SUPER fast. This 16”x16” was painted in less than an hour. . . Thanks @artsnacks for getting me started. The monthly supplies turned me into a speed painter. It never would have occurred to me to start on small paper and scale up my technical skills on larger canvases. The community has made the self-taught experience fun and exciting ✨🙏✨ . . #oneyearlater #beforeandafter #speedpainting #speedpainter #landscapepainting #rockies #abstractpainting #abstracto #kunst #abstractogram #abstract #5280 #artshare #denvercolorado #denver #denverartist #artsnacks #jasonwagnerart
