Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 28 with Lesley Fightmaster

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 28 Today we'll practice lots of core strengthening and we'll work up to an arm balance called bakasana. Bakasana is called crow or crane pose. It's challenging and we'll go through the actions for the pose before we attempt it. I'd recommend a pillow or blanket to put under your face, just in case you lose your balance and fall forward. This class is great to hip and shoulder stretching as well as strengthening your belly muscles. Enjoy and rememeber...it's not about if you get into the pose or not...just do your best and while you're practicing your mind will quiet down and be present. Giving ourselves a break from the chatter of the mind is the gift of yoga...the pose is just for fun!

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 29 with Lesley Fightmaster

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 29 Today we learn how to come up in a handstand prep. You'll need a wall to take this pose. It's really fun and actually looks more difficult than it is. We'll do a lot of core strengthening today and tomorrow to get you super strong in case you want to continue with the 90-day yoga fix program. There will again be a lot of vinyasa flow in today's class so as always, rest and push the pause button whenever you need to!  You're doing an amazing job with this challenge...only one more day to go!!! Great work!
