10 min Beginner Yoga Balancing Poses | 30 Day Beginner Yoga Challenge Day 9

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

Balancing Poses Day 9 of our 30 Day Beginner Yoga Challenge is an inversion free, and prop free yoga class to practice balancing poses. In this class we will slowly begin to build our balancing poses. We begin this class by centering and focusing on the balance of the flow of our breath in and out through our nostrils. From there we warm up our spine with some cat and cow pose. From table top position we practice some balancing arm/leg reaches. In gate pose I will offer you some balancing options. When we come to standing we practice tree pose and modified eagle pose with lots of options for balancing. Instead of a poem today we listen to the poetry of the forest. 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.
