Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 5

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge, welcome to day 5. Today we're adding plank pose which is a challenging and wonderful yoga pose that builds strength throughout the body. We'll also practice cobra pose. We're adding more and more poses to build into a complete sun salutation which is used a lot in our practice to warm up the body. For our standing poses, we'll add trikonasana, or triangle pose. This pose is a wonderful lateral stretch which lengthens the side body. Moving the spin forward and backward (flexion/extension) is a wonderful way to keep it healthy. Lateral stretches or side bends are important for the spine too.

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 21

Yoga For Beginners 30 Day Challenge Day 21 I know you've been working very hard these last 3 weeks, and today's practice will give you a little rest. We're going to take a little bit of asana to warm up the body and then we'll move into a mindfulness practice (also known as meditation). If you're comfortable enough to sit during this practice, please do, but if laying down is a better option for you, then please be comfortable. Enjoy some rest today!
