No time to waste! As my Dad used to say when I was younger, Make it so #1!
Tucked away inside the upscale neighborhood of Hawaii Kai/Portlock is a beautiful piece of Oahu coastline called Spitting Caves. This spot got its name from the caves created underneath the cliffs due to the constant tidal force hitting the rocks. The current is so powerful that every few minutes large gushes of water spray upward followed by the underwater cave sucking the water back in. The later is why Spitting Caves is so dangerous to cliff dive or swim...even the most experienced swimmers can be overtaken by the surge of the current and sucked into the cave's abyss.
Mirror Blue Ray Bans were the perfect island vacation accessory!
They call them Spitting Caves for a reason...
...and I'm outta here! (side note: I can't believe I was running on this cliff...beyond sketchy!)
The power of the water hitting the rocks is breathtaking. It's a great spot for vacation pictures or to come and clear your mind.
People actually swim and board out here (you can see some of them in this pic!). Be careful though, there are major accidents at Spitting Caves every week.

I've been taking yoga for years and only recently found out my chaturanga dandasana was all wrong (embarrassing). In fact, the teacher couldn't believe how many of us in the purportedly advanced class were butchering this move...so much so she stopped the class and took us all back to basics to correct the error of our ways.
This sparked a massive internet search once I got home trying to figure out how common screwing up this yoga staple was, double checking the teacher's instructions and why no yoga teacher in the past had brought it up(!). I mean, doing chaturanga wrong cheats yourself from flowing with absolute intention and building strength, not to mention, it can really mess up your wrists and elbows.
My problem was that I had been crash diving from Plank into Up Dog instead of consciously lowering out of Plank and into Low Push-Up before taking Up Dog. This is VERY common whether you prefer Up Dog or Cobra during your flow and naturally I now notice so many people flowing incorrectly during the different yoga classes I attend. So after viewing many videos and articles on the subject, I though this one by clevelandyoga.com explained it best and wanted to share with all of you current and future yogis ♥
