10 min Basic Yoga for Beginners | 30 Day Beginner Yoga Challenge Day 4

published 5 months ago by Dr. Melissa West - Yoga Teacher - Namaste Yoga

Basic Yoga Day 4 of our beginner yoga challenge is a basic yoga for beginners. This is a hands free, wrist free, kneeling free, prop free, and inversion free yoga class. This class contains simple yoga poses for beginners, beginning with knee to chest pose to release your low back and keyhole stretch to release your hips. Boat pose will strengthen your core and the variation we practice in this class will connect you with your heart. Tree pose is a balancing pose we practice today, with lots of options if balancing poses are challenging for you. We finish with a reclined twist to release your spine and your back and tune into your breathing. Our poem in savasana today is by Mark Nepo. 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.
