Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 23 Today is all about the heart! We're focusing on practicing backbends and we'll work up to Ustrasana or Camel pose. This is a wonderful heart opening posture. Some people experience an emotional response (happiness, fear, sadness) while practicing this pose or other backbends. Keep in mind that if you have some kind of emotional response to the poses, it's perfectly normal. There are many things in our lives (feelings, experiences) that get stored in our bodies and although we may not be aware of them on an intellectual level, we can still release things that can get "stuck" through our yoga practice. I hope that you enjoy our practice today!! Lots of love to you!
