First off, you need to accept that the splits are going to take you a LONG time to fully 'master.' I don't want to discourage you from learning the splits, I just want you to be realistic and understand that you're in this for the long haul, and when you finally get a flat split, it's going to feel amazing. I started dancing at the age of two and it wasn't util I turned 13 that I actually started really dedicating myself to the splits. It took me three years from that moment to be able to do the splits comfortably. (keep in mind it took me three years and I was dancing 5-6 days a week and I still had to practice the splits on top of that)
So let's hold each other accountable. Take a before picture of your split today and post it on Instagram using the hashtag #FitFlexySplits in your post. Every time you post a photo of your split practice (no matter where you are in your journey) include that hashtag. This way you'll be able to interact with other yoginis who are working on their splits and you'll experience the support of the Fit Flexy Folk community as we work together to master our splits.
Dedicate about 10 mins a day to practicing the splits (or longer, but try for 10 minimum). If you miss one day, that's totally fine, if you miss a week - also okay. Just keep coming back to your practice. Show up for yourself and if that's not enough to push you, show up for the people in the community who are also working on improving their splits.
Here are your poses
Forward Fold w/ belly to thighs
floating table top
high lunge (rock back & forth)
low lunge w/ twist
low lunge w/ heel to glute
attempt your split (that means move as far as you are able) and hold for 10 breaths
If you don't want to post yoga photos of your regular instagram account, no problem. Simply make a new account where you can keep track of your practice like an online journal. Don't know what to make your username? Try @FitFlexy(INSERT YOUR NAME) or @FFF(INSERT YOUR NAME)
