Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 7. Congratulations!! You've made it through your first week. I hope you're feeling good and don't forget to drink lots of water! Today we'll focus more on plank pose and moving from plank to downward dog. We'll also practice lifting one leg in downward dog to step it forward by the hands. Don't worry if your foot doesn't make it all the way between your hands, it can take time to build the strength and flexibility. You can always pick it up and put it between the hands. We're be adding more and more sun salutations. If there gets to be too many for you, please skip them and rest in downward dog.
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.
Yoga for Beginners 30 day challenge Day 24! Today we'll include more Surya Namaskar B sun salutations during our vinyasa flow. As always, while practicing this type of hatha yoga, please modify and rest as needed. Surya B can be challenging as we synch breath with movement. Try not to get discouraged if it's not easy...it will become easier as you continue. You're getting so strong and your stamina is increasing from this challenge. Keep up the good work!!
