Mine

If you HAD to choose one pose as your favorite, what would it be? Mine would be #PuppyPose! I seriously do this stretch every single day...usually standing against the wall, but this extended version on the mat is soooo delicious! . . . . . @aloyoga ❤️ #stretch #bend #flexible #yoga #yogi #instayoga #igyogi #aloyoga #makingshapes #yogapose #extendedpuppypose #yogalove #yogaphotography

Part 4 of My Story: How I became a helicopter pilot. It’s been a while since I shared part 3, but you can read Part 1,2 and 3 at #LeighsHeliLife. . Even after my second knee surgery, snowboarding was just too painful, so I decided to skip the next Tahoe winter and began looking for a fun new place to go. I had a friend who needed a roommate for a house he was buying in Maui, so I subleased my coveted Squaw Valley apartment (along with my sweet Oscar kitty) to a friend of mine, stored my car and motorcycle, withdrew my life savings of $10K, and packed a bag...ready to begin my never ending summer. But last minute style, the Maui place fell through and I had no place to go. So I called my friend Tracy who I had heard moved to the Big Island, and asked her what it was like there. “It’s great!” she said, “and I need a roommate!” I was there a few days later. . My intention was to simply skip winter. I got a job waiting tables at the local golf course restaurant, which meant free golf, yay! I found a cheap island car...with a convertible top stuck in the down position, haha. I bought a surfboard and settled into easy tropical living. . Then one night at a party, I was talking to this guy over a beer, and he told me, all cool guy😎style, that he was a helicopter pilot. I was amazed and shared with him that I had my private airplane license but hadn’t flown in a while. Turns out he was actually a student helicopter pilot and going to flight school right there in Kona...and when I heard this, I think my heart stopped for a minute. “You mean you can just go to helicopter school? You don’t have to go through military?” “Yes,” he said. “You just get a loan for $50K, you go through school at your own pace...takes about a year and you become an instructor. Your school hopefully hires you when you’re done and you teach until you get 1000 hours...usually takes another year. Then you go get any job you want after that.” . I was stunned. A light went on in my head and I knew I just had to do that! I grabbed another beer and found my friend Tracy. “Let’s be helicopter pilots!” I said, and told her the story. “OK,” she said! To be continued... . #helicopter #pilot #avgeek

#Aloboutpincha
Day 1

Noooo, it can’t be the last day already, can it?! #Aloboutpincha Day 10 is Yogis Choice, so I’m choosing to bring back a super fun game we like to call #WriteInPincha! And after 10 days of #pinchamayurasana practice, I found this to be especially achievable...I mean it’s still hard, but it was doable, ya know?! ⠀ Since I don’t want this party to end, I’m tagging some of my favorite IG Yogi Babes to write in pincha too! @eileendelatorre @natashaswinter @cece.carson @yogi.bree @yoginiinheels ⠀ Thanks for joining us for this Pincha Party! I wrote all you pincha participants a love note...can you read my writing?!❤️ ⠀ Your PINCHA Hosts: @leighyogipilot @livinleggings @palmbeachyogi @yoga_supqueen @cupcakesandyoga ⠀ Your Fabulous Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves⠀ ⠀ #yoga #forearmstand #travelingyogi #balance #inversion #aloyogachallenge #aloyoga #yogachallenge #yogalove #yogi #yogagirl #yogapractice #beagoddess #silly #sillyyoga #yogafun

Hiding in plain site! Can you spot the #yogi? ⠀ Finding lines like this is one of my favorite things to do with outdoor yoga pics. I set my phone to record video at 6K (highest quality,) I set it in a tripod and do my pose in front of it. I move my legs slowly higher and lower, left and right, hoping to catch the lines exactly how I want them. Then I watch the video, adjust whatever I need to and do it again till I get what I like. This is all part of the fun for me, and since I rarely get it on the first try, I get a great workout in the process! ⠀ Make sure to check in with my awesome co host @livinleggings for a really great discussion on hand placement for #pincha.#Aloboutpincha Day 9 and your assignment is #pinchamayurasana with #diamondlegs! ⠀ Your PINCHA Hosts: @leighyogipilot @livinleggings @palmbeachyogi @yoga_supqueen @cupcakesandyoga ⠀ Your Fabulous Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves⠀ ⠀ #whereswaldo #yoga #forearmstand #travelingyogi #balance #inversion #stonesteps #yogaphotography #yogalines #aloyogachallenge #aloyoga #yogachallenge #yogalove #yogi #yogagirl #yogapractice #beagoddess #art #yogaart

It’s seriously amazing to me how just a few days of consistent pincha practice makes such a huge difference. Are you all feeling the same?

So much devastation and destruction from the fires in California. So many people displaced...it’s just heartbreaking. ⠀ The #woolseyfire claimed 616 homes, many in the small community of #MalibouLake where I grew up. My parents were one of the lucky ones with no fire damage. My brothers home survived...with some damage, but overall my family is very lucky and we have a lot to be thankful for. My heart goes out to everyone not so fortunate...like this neighbor. I took a walk this morning and saw this, and many other fireplaces still standing amongst the rubble and just had to share. This community is strong and it will rise again. The people take care of each other...in times of good and in times of challenge. My heart is with you all! ⠀ Day 7 #Aloboutpincha, and your assignment is #funky #pinchamayurasana. Choose any leg shape that works for you, just put your weight on one hand and one forearm. And use a wall if you need one!! ⠀ Your PINCHA Hosts: @leighyogipilot @livinleggings @palmbeachyogi @yoga_supqueen @cupcakesandyoga ⠀ Your Fabulous Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves⠀ ⠀ #aloforearmsfordays #pincha #yoga #forearmstand #travelingyogi #balance #inversion #yogaphotography #aloyogachallenge #aloyoga #yogachallenge #yogalove #yogi #yogagirl #yogapractice #beagoddess

Tomorrow is already Day 6 of #Aloboutpincha, and your assignment is #pinchamayurasana in #pyramidlegs. Yup, another one you may not have tried yet! Isn’t it pretty?! I love this shape! It’s easier for me to find this shape with a bit of a #hollowback, but you can try it any which way that works for you. It’s just like tree pose but instead of opening the hip to the side, you keep it square. ⠀ PS I fell right after this...check my Stories for a giggle... ⠀ For some bonus #pincha warm ups, check out #aloforearmsfordays and tag BOTH challenges! ⠀ Your PINCHA Hosts: @leighyogipilot @livinleggings @palmbeachyogi @yoga_supqueen @cupcakesandyoga ⠀ Your Fabulous Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves⠀ ⠀ #yoga #forearmstand #travelingyogi #balance #inversion #yogaphotography #portraitphotography #aesthetic #santabarbarayoga #backbend #flexible #aloyogachallenge #aloyoga #yogachallenge #yogalove #yogi #yogagirl #yogapractice #beagoddess #inversionsmakeyouhot #silhouette #windowyoga

Tomorrow is Day 5 of #Aloboutpincha, and your assignment is #pinchamayurasana in #scorpion. I got lucky and had the whole studio to myself after class today. I was nice and warmed up already, but I still did a few extra warm ups before working on #scorpionpose. Swipe 👈left for some simple warm ups and if you watch till the end you’ll see a very graceful exit...haha (not so much.) Just over here working on the stuff that’s hard for me! But it’s easier knowing you’re all working on it too!

It’s raining in So Cal! So indoor yoga it is today. Luckily I’m staying in a super cute hotel with just enough space for my legs! ⠀ Tomorrow is Day 4 of #Aloboutpincha, and your assignment is #pinchamayurasana with #splits. You can do either front splits or #middlesplits, AKA #straddlesplits. And don’t worry how deep your split is...this is all simply about getting on our forearms consistently every day. The leg shape is just a distraction...haha, oh and it’s fun! ⠀ I don’t know about you, but even after just four days I’m feeling stronger! How bout you guys?! You all are looking amazing!! This is turning out to be a serious #PinchaParty! Keep on rocking it! And remember using a wall is fabulous...use it behind you, in front of you, next to you...get creative with Paul...he’s awesome! I used Hotel Paul to work on my gaze shift. It was great cuz I could catch myself falling and not waste too much energy to get back up into the balance. Can’t wait to see your splits! ⠀ For some bonus #pincha warm ups, check out #aloforearmsfordays and tag BOTH challenges! ⠀ Your PINCHA Hosts: @leighyogipilot @livinleggings @palmbeachyogi @yoga_supqueen @cupcakesandyoga ⠀ Your Fabulous Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves⠀ ⠀ #yoga #forearmstand #travelingyogi #balance #inversion #santabarbarayoga #hotelyoga #aloyogachallenge #aloyoga #yogachallenge #yogalove #yogi #yogagirl #yogafun #beagoddess

Tomorrow is Day 3 of #Aloboutpincha, and your assignment is #pinchamayurasana with #ladylegs. ⠀ What are Lady legs you ask?! Well just imagine going to a tea party in a cute little dress and being all dainty with your pinky up while you sip your tea and nibble on your triangle shaped crustless cucumber sandwich. Imagine how your legs are crossed in that cute little dress...all sweet and lady like. Got it! Good, now do that upsidedown! ⠀ BTW not everyone at that tea party has their legs crossed the same, so yes, it’s open for interpretation, and I can’t wait to see how YOU sit at the tea party! ⠀ PS I took this pic last night during sunset knowing I wouldn’t have time for yoga today... Why? Cuz I was busy flying a JETPACK!!! Yup, for realz! I went to my second training course today with @jetpackaviation. It’s seriously the most amazing feeling ever! It’s not easy and I’m beat, but I’ll share what I can on my Stories!! .

leighyogipilot. This was the most challenging, yet rewarding experience of my life. Ca

This was the most challenging, yet rewarding experience of my life. Can you believe it?! I just flew a Jetpack...for real! . I am beyond honored to be one of the first 12 people in the world to have flown this magical machine...and the ONLY WOMAN! . I am the lightest pilot they’ve ever had, so I used less fuel and got to fly longer on one tank than they have seen before. Rigging was a bit of a challenge because of my smaller size, but once we all figured it out and I got to feel a moment of (almost) controlled flight, it was pure magic. It was NOT easy, but catching a few moments of understanding made it all sooooo satisfying. . My helicopter skills crossed over nicely...like learning to hover, and I was told I have a natural ability. Yup, serious bragging rights! I’m a natural JETPACK PILOT! Haha, but check out my Stories to see how the pros fly it! . How did I get this amazing opportunity you asked??? The same way YOU can! A friend told me he’d seen something about jetpacks, I googled it, found @jetpackaviation, emailed them, didn’t hear back, emailed again and again, still nothing. I found them here on IG, bugged them till I got a good email address, got the info on the new Experience Center Training they were planning, signed up, paid for it, and showed up when they said to. . If you want something badly enough, you make it happen. Consider me the friend who told you something about jetpacks...now the rest is up to you! . #dreamcometrue #Jetpack #pilot #aviation #avgeek #jetpacks #pilotlife #femalepilot #pilotsofinstagram #instaaviation #makinghistory #womenmakinghistory #whirlygirl #inspiring #fly
