Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 19. As we continue our challenge, you'll find some more challenging poses. Today, we're working toward Warrior 3 or virabhadrasana. This pose is very challenging and I recommend using two yoga blocks to help make this pose a bit more accessible. One of the biggest challenges is keeping the hips level as you lift the leg up and back (extension). Please modify your vinyasa's as needed and rest in child's pose whenever you'd like a break. Most importantly keep your breath steady...if that means you need to push the pause button to rest and and reconnect with the breath, then do! Always take care of yourself!!
Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 22 Today we'll work up to twisted half moon pose or pavritta ardha chandrasana. This is a challenging balance pose with a twist. You may remember practicing twisted triangle (pavritta trikonasana) a couple of days ago and this pose adds on to what we learned about twists. Twists are great to promote proper digestion and a healthy spine. We'll continue to practice sun salutations in our vinyasa flow style. As always, please rest and take breaks whenever they're needed...child's pose is always an option. Our classes are getting a bit longer to get you ready for our yoga fix 90 program if you're interested in continuing your challenge longer.
