Day 6 of our beginner yoga challenge is an inversion free and prop free class that is a perfect way for you to practice in the morning. This beginner yoga class for the morning starts with a breath practice to energize your morning. There is some shoulder release to wake up your shoulder joints. Bridge pose will strengthen your glutes and open up your hips. We will open up your side body and breathing with some gate variations. When we come up to standing we will practice breath of joy which is incredibly energizing and Goddess Victory Squat with some rotations to release your spine and back. We will finish in savasana with a poem by Mary Oliver.
You can do this class if you have never done a yoga class before in your life. I will give you slow, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions and tell you exactly how to get in and out of each and every pose. Detailed instructions will be given for even the most basic poses and how to breathe. You will be given lots of cues of how to pay attention to your body and where to feel the effects of the yoga poses. You do not have to be athletic, flexible, strong, balanced, skinny or coordinated to do this class. The slow, step-by-step instructions will give you the confidence to let go of your self-judgment and stay focused with commitment and motivation.
