Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 1

Yoga for beginners 30 day challenge: welcome to day 1. In our first class, we'll focus a lot on ujjayi breathing (pranayama), the natural curves in the spine and how to support them. We'll practice such yoga poses as: apanasana (wind relieving pose!), table, cat and cow, and of course savasana which is our final resting pose. Be sure to push pause if you need a break and also, drink plenty of water throughout this 30 day challenge.

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 6

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 6. Today we're going to add some twists to our yoga poses. If you have two yoga blocks and a yoga blanket, please have them handy. If you don't have any yoga props, you may consider picking some up. Amazon has a nice selection and if you go through the banner on our home page (fightmasteryoga.com), you'll be helping us and it won't cost you anything extra. :-) I love to use yoga props in my own practice and when I teach. I think they're great! Today we're adding prasarita paddottonasana or wide legged forward fold. We'll practice the traditional "A" position and another variation with a twist. 

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 18

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 18. Today we're going to practice strengthening our core muscles and we'll practice some balancing poses including Garudasana (eagle pose). Toward of the beginning of our practice we'll make our way into table position, lifting the opposite arms and legs, then we'll draw the knee and elbow in toward center, engaging the core muscles, and practicing balance. When we extend the leg back, we're practicing keeping the hips level and the torso stable. This is more challenging than it looks but it's great to keep the back muscles strong! Enjoy your vinyasa practice and modify and rest as needed.
