10 min Beginner Yoga Full Body Stretch | 30 Day Beginner Yoga Challenge Day 7

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

Full Body Stretch Day 7 of our 30 Day Beginner Yoga Challenge is a hand free, wrist free, kneeling free, inversion free, and prop free yoga class. It is a full body stretch that will start with some centering to connect with your breath, body and the earth. Our first stretch will be for your hamstrings and then your hips and glutes. Next up will be your low back with knees to chest and a twist. When we come to standing we will do some stretches to release your upper back, followed by some additional stretches for the front of your hips and quadriceps. We will finish with butterfly pose for your inner thighs and a poem in savasana by Jeff Foster called: The Promise. 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.
